Just breaking now. Not much info so far.




Iraqi MPs have passed a resolution calling for foreign troops to leave the country after the US killed a top Iranian general in a drone strike at Baghdad airport last week.

Parliament in Baghdad also asked the Iraqi government to work to ban foreign forces from using Iraqi land, airspace or water for any reason

I say we leave, continue sanctions on Iran, and withhold all foreign aid to the entire region.

Then go fishing. Maybe take in a movie.

There's the US idea of 'democracy' in action right there, give us your resources and let us do as we please in your country, or we'll choke you into submission

... but the interim gov need not to follow the advice, and leave it to the elected gov to take care of. After which, atleast 12 months to follow. So, nothing imminent as such.

Very true, and I'm eager to see how they plan on going through with this decision. Especially now when things will most likely escalate with Iran.

But at least the illusion that the United States has fought many wars to in the name of freedom and democracy and to liberate the people will end.

"All foreign troops" … I imagine that would also include Iranian personnel.

I think that may be a smart move for the Iraqis to make, as right now they are being played as expendable pawns by both sides of the US (and others) vs Iran (and others) conflict.

So you propose imposing sanctions on an already war torn and divided country because they want to expel foreign soldiers from their own country?

Well then lets pull out and leave them on their own. If that is what they want then lets grant them their wishes.
I'm all for it.

Parliament passed a "decision" to remove coalition forces from Iraq. Halbusi clarified that the cancellation of the agreement requires a legislation. A draft needs to be presented by the PM or the President, pass first and second reading, then a one year notice for withdrawal.

All uninvited foreign troops I guess , Germany were planing a deployment so that looks in doubt.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out , it's Iraq's choice but it would be a bold move , they probably feel safer with Iran than America ... who can blame them.

It's all foreign troops.


1. Revoke the security agreement with the US.
2. Remove all foreign troops from Iraq.
3. All weapons to be under control of the State.

I am a strong supporter of President Trump. I think he's been great but damn this Iran crap. As exciting as all this has been, how many of you are like me and wish we (the USA) would just leave the Middle East all together?

Iran is so fundamentally extreme in their beliefs that they represent a real future danger to any country not governed by Islam. Okay, I get it but if we left the region for a few decades I'm sure the next generation wouldn't be nearly as hostile towards us. We should chalk the ME as a lost cause once and for all.


Come on President Trump. Deal with the issues closer to home like Mexico with their cartels and corrupt government. They are a much greater danger to our country being on our southern border than any country in the Middle East.

That's would be the safest/most peaceful solution for Iraq and the rest of the world as Sulemani's replacement is a hardline religious fanatic, though UK intel/Telegraph foreign desk claim it's aimed squarely at US forces. UK is sending more SAS there in the next few days, though their role is to evacuate any UK citizens and protect cargo ships due to looming US-Iran war, not to back up the US deployment (according to what's been made public anyway).

*shrugs*

Sure.

No "war for oil".

Let the Chinese and Russians spend their capital, destabilize the region and fight themselves.
