Get out! That’s the plain message from the Iraqi Parliament to the US Empire.
The Iraqi parliament called on the government on Sunday to work to end all foreign troop presence as a backlash grew after the killing of a top Iranian military commander and an Iraqi militia leader in a U.S. strike in Baghdad.
A resolution passed by a special session of parliament said the government should cancel its request for assistance from a U.S.-led coalition.
Parliament resolutions, unlike laws, are non-binding to the government. But this one is likely to be heeded: Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi had earlier called on parliament to end foreign troop presence as soon as possible.
“Despite the internal and external difficulties that we might face, it remains best for Iraq on principle and practically,” Abdul Mahdi said.
If The Trump has half a brain, he can prove it by going ahead with the total withdrawal with or without Iraqi action. The option also remains best for what’s left of America on principle and practically.
And, did Ivanka cry just before this last utterly idiotic blunder? Maybe over the fate of the ill-placed ISIS trainer?
UPDATE: this coming week’s TPC column will center on the Trump-Iran-WW3 lunacy, in exactly what fashion I do not know; not thrilled about my draft. That, here, later.
