It only makes things worse?
[shrug] And why would I care about that?
Hes gotta persuade the Iraqis, not us
Either ask us to stay and treat us as allies, or ask us to go
Then we should go because if we dont then what are we?
Now is the time to tell all of the ME countries who do not want to be ruled by Iran to start moving troops into Iraq, Afghanistan and everywhere else they’re needed to replace American troop and keep stability.....before more good young men and women die for the sake of those shi+hole countries.
First, the article appears to be one big straw man, espousing arguments I have not seen elsewhere. The argument for leaving Iraq is based on national self-interest, and does not rely on the Muslim nations breaking out in unbridled cooperation to solve their problems.
Second, the argument presented emphasizes how much worse it will be for the people in the middle east, and does not address the national self-interest portion of the problem. The US has proven time and again that being in the middle east drains blood and treasure, killing our soldiers (and other Americans) and costing enormous sums of money which enrich the anti-american leaders of the countries we are there to help.
I do not know what the answer is, but I am certain it is not doing what is considered best for those who consciously make themselves our enemies while killing our soldiers and hemorrhaging money to build the enemy’s rage against us.
Iraq is asking us to leave. We should do so in a planned and orderly fashion. I think we only have about 2000 troops
In Syria fighting ISIS. We can draw those troops down incrementally.
Worse for whom?
Eff it. If we are gonna stay then take the GD country over and run it as a territory. When the oil is gone, leave and let the bastards starve.
Rules of Engagement with Muslims:
1) if non-Muslims are present, Muslims of the Shia and Sunni sects will combine to enslave (physically and economically), convert, and annihilate the infidels.
2) if no infidels are present, Shia will turn against Sunni sects until one or the other is annihilated.
The only question is, are YOU an infidel?
Trump has ONE terrorist leader killed and the critics leap to “World War 3”?. How many did Obama off with predator drones? Just don’t get all this Pollyanna response to a single kill of a single terrorist?
I care about American interests. Period.
