Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi recommended ousting the troops after Trump authorized the assassination of the Iranian commander in Baghdad.

And next either Russia or Turkey or maybe even China will take the US' place.

Well at least well be out of the ME.

www.huffpost.com...



Iraq’s parliament voted to demand the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country on Sunday following U.S. President Donald Trump’s order to assassinate a high-profile Iranian military leader there.

The vote came after Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi advised parliament to expel the troops in response to the attack Trump authorized last week on Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani while the commander was at Baghdad International Airport in Iraq. Soleimani was a senior commander of Iran’s Quds Force and one of the most powerful figures in the Middle East. The assassination killed eight others, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the leader of a powerful Iraqi militia.



Also, Iran will totally start building a nuclear weapon
Iran Vows to Abandon Nuclear Deal After Qassem Soleimani Killing



Iran’s government said on Sunday that it will no longer abide by the limits of the 2015 nuclear agreement following Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s assassination, according to Iranian state television reports.

You do realize we lease bases all over the ME...we still have a presense and we can still dunk on anyone planning to do harm to Americans or our interests in the region. The bright side to leaving Iraq is that we were spending a fortune rebuilding, training, arming, and supplying the region...not to mention the air power we used to help keep them secure. How long Will their security last without that...guess we will see soon...

With no cooperation of the Iraqi government, you’d create another insurgency pretty quick like ISIS or worse.

Trump has made a mess of everything and it's only going to get worse.

Were talking about a standard of peace putting thousands of troops back into Iraq is a disaster and would make the idea of peace impossible.


All Trump has done since he got in the office is raised then ]eME tensions.

They are the same religion as Iran, Shia mainly.

The Iranians helped them defeat ISIS.

Bush and Cheney in their stupid and immoral war of 2003 on Iraq empowered Iran.


Just like this attack will, in the end, be bad for the US.

Then America is the rogue country people say they are.

Along with its buddy Israel

The new Nazis and fascists of the era, only pretending to be a democracy

Eventually, they will get out...

What you don’t understand is any country that is not wanted in another country will eventually, one way or the either, leave.


BTW, The vote in their parliament was 170–0 to leave

The American troops were supposed to be there to fight ISIS, and train the Iraqi troops, not fight Iran on Iraqi soil and tear up their country any further.

The ISIS fight and training has been canceled completely.

Good destroy every piece of infrastructure we rebuilt, throw phosphate onto every piece of equipment we cant ship back within reason, pull out every single American, including contractors

Stop every single dime of foreign aid

And let the country kill itself off.

Remind them the next time theres a huge issue where any Americans for any reasons are targeted, we wont need boots on the ground from the altitude we will be operating at

Iran has been increasing it's ability to build nuclear weapons all along, they see this as a time to start building nuclear weapons now at double the rate they were before. The Europeans and the last administration were so dumb to think Iran was not working on expanding it's capabilities. Trump's administration, along with input from some high ranking military officials said we should not be part of actually giving them capital and a shield to hide their facilities.
