Iraqi Parliament to America: Get Lost

By David Kamioner | January 5, 2020

Iraqi legislators on Sunday approved a measure calling for the expulsion of all U.S. troops from the country in retaliation for the successful USAF Friday drone strike that killed Iranian terrorist general Qassem Soleimani.

The resolution is a non-binding vote that is generally symbolic and thus the 5000 American military personnel deployed to the Near Eastern terrordome are not going anywhere in the immediate future.

So, it’s really just the Iranian-backed Iraqi Shiite members of their parliament throwing a fit because we nailed one of their guys before he was about to wreak havoc on us.

The president campaigned in 2016 criticizing our military effort in Iraq. Like this and as in so much else, he has been proved right.

Prior to our invasion of Iraq there was a tinpot dictator in power there that may have had nuclear warheads, or not, but not the delivery systems that made him a direct threat to the United States.

Saddam had fought a vicious war with Iran, in which we had aided him, and was acting as a strategic counterpoint to the greater threat to America, the drooling bloodthirsty Islamist maniacs in Tehran.

Yes, he was horrible to his people. However, so are many other regimes and it’s none of our business there either.

After the 2003 U.S. invasion, in an irresponsible and gullible grand mal seizure of idiotic “save the world for democracy” Woodrow Wilsonian folly and G.W. Bush naiveté, we went on to spend precious national blood and treasure in a well-meaning but bumbling attempt to turn a medieval Dodge City into a political approximation of a small town in Michigan, but with older guns.

In the process Iraq also became virtually allied with Iran.

Though our troops fought nobly and bravely it didn’t work, and could never work, because democracy is not one size fits all.

Thus, we should say to the Iraqi parliament, “good riddance to bad rubbish” and leave them to their mess.

From the beginning to now the entire joint has not been worth the life of one American Marine. Now even the local ingrates admit it. Let us take them at their word.
