FILE - In this Aug. 8, 2010 file photo, mourners unload the coffin of a relative, one of a family of five, at a funeral service in the Shiite city of Najaf, 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of Baghdad, Iraq. As the U.S. winds up combat operations in Iraq this month, a gap is widening between the militaries of both countries and their political masters over whether American soldiers should stay beyond the 2011 deadline for all of them to withdraw. It's the latest potential standoff as the uneasy allies each try to end the seven-year U.S. war without unraveling Iraq's still-precarious security. (AP Photo/Alaa al-Marjani, File)
