Trump at War?

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Iraq’s parliament has voted to expel the U.S. military from the country.

Lawmakers voted Sunday in favor of a resolution that calls for ending foreign military presence in the country. The resolution’s main aim is to get the U.S. to withdraw some 5,000 U.S. troops present in different parts of Iraq.

The vote comes two days after a U.S. airstrike killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani inside Iraq, dramatically increasing regional tensions.

The Iraqi resolution specifically calls for ending an agreement in which Washington sent troops to Iraq more than four years ago to help in the fight against the Islamic State group.

The resolution was backed by most Shiite members of parliament, who hold a majority of seats.

Many Sunni and Kurdish legislators did not show up for the session, apparently because they oppose abolishing the deal.
Even Bush and Cheney weren't stupid enough to take out Soleimani. The potential consequences are a surprise to no one except Cheetohead.

This whole thing is surreal and certainly doesn't give off warm fuzzies for a happy ending.

Trump on this, continued: “We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build. Long before my time. We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it."

Thanks to Shrub's negotiation and Obama's compliance with it, we almost entirely left Iraq until the rise of ISIS and a large scale reentry was negotiated.

Saddam would not have let that Iranian General anywhere near the Baghdad airport and he'd not put up with any of this other Shiite either.
That says it all this time.
Saddam was found hiding in a hole.

Impeached 45SHOLE is a genius peacemaker.
He's doing everything that he possibly can to unite the Muslim world . . . against us.

That would be zip nada zilch less than none as long as Trump is in office, and will have to be hard-earned after he's gone.
Thank goodness that Hillary Clinton isn't someone that the Embassy would call.

No nation can accept foreign officials being assassinated on its soil. 45SHOLE just invited Iran or any other country or group to take out Mark Esper or Pompeo while they're traveling abroad.

And by take out, you mean take her out on a date to a nice dinner then some Netflix and chill. Really hit Trump where it hurts.

Was there anything left for the funeral?

U.S. Seals blew Bin Laden's skull off, no open casket there.
Then again, he was buried at sea.

Idk, Ivanka's getting rather long in the tooth for 45SHOLE. It's that awkward time in the Trump Klan when his lust is turning towards his or other people's granddaughters.

Take out of couple of his hotels, I'm sure he's not paid his insurance if the trend holds.

That stupidity still? Pitiful, it was Iran's money, NOT Obama's or ours.

Donald Trump's Mostly False claim that $400 million payment to Iran was 'ransom'

It would be interesting to run a tally showing when 45SHOLE's belligerence towards Iran costs us more than the amount of Iran's money that ODS ovine Trumpettes have been whining like toddlers about for years.
