When will America leave? 3.5 million march

Discussion in 'The War Room' started by monster zero, Jan 28, 2020.

  1. People in power in the US government keep saying we need an exit strategy, there is no way to leave Iraq. Yet at the same time 3.5 million Iraqis marched in protest of their countries occupation.

    You would think this is huge news but the media is pretty quiet about it. Americans want them out of Iraq, the people they kill would want them gone, the soldiers want to be gone, 3.5m citizens are protesting... Why can't they just leave already?

    Is 20 years not long enough? The trillions of dollars wasted not enough? What will actually be the breaking point holy fuck Merica.

    Seriously this is tax money for your old age security being blown to put holes in civilians and brown people. When will it be enough?

    It’s throwing good money after bad at this point. Iraq and Afghanistan both.

    Remember when ISIS rose up as they tried to exit? That's what people in power are scared of happening again.

    we are being ruled by a shadowy nexus that WILL NOT let us leave the Middle East.

    EVER. president trump ran head first into that wall a few times. Shameful, it’s like he’s given up on leaving now.

    We literally support al qaeda in Syria. We have no moral high ground left. Soon we will support the sunni remnants of ISIS in Iraq.

    get us out trump! Let isreal fight it’s own battles.

    When all the oil has been stolen.

    The US is basically one giant protection racket.

    remember when ISIS only rose up because we sent al qaeda and other jihandist terrorist groups into Syria to murder the Christians and minorities there? Isis arose in SYRIA, not Iraq. And isreal acted as their Air Force.

    i remember. Then the false flag chemical attacks.

    then isis steamrolled into Iraq. AS PLANNED. And we didn’t help Iraq even when ISIS made it to the gates of Baghdad. We only intervened in the north once the Kurds were smashed and the oil companies holdings in Irbil were threatened.

    then once we realized the brave Shia volunteers were going to stop ISIS and push them back, we decided to help so we don’t lose all influence to Iran.

    "If we can march right into Iraq, we can march right out."

    -Former Congressmen Ron Paul

    I disagreed with with the Obama administration's choice to stay in Iraq indefinitely despite explicitly campaigning on the opposite. To the extent that President Trump decides to stay in Iraq is the extent that I disagree with him on this issue. When rumors of a draw down were circulated, I was very pleased.

    We leave and Iraq occupies the power vacuum. The country starts to tear apart from the Shia vs Sunni violence. ISIS takes footholds in key areas. Cycle continues.

    Who wants to make a bet?

    You know there are more troops in Iraq today than the day Trump took office, right? In other words, whatever draw downs began under Obama were actually reversed by your boy.

    This is in keeping with Trump's key policy litmus: If Obama did it it was wrong and the damage must be undone.

    Look they supposedly voted us out, only to have their leaders tell us that isnt what they want. Shrug. We arent going anywhere. Especially with the Iran shit about to really pop off.

    The US produces more oil domestically than Iraq. The blood for oil libel is obsolete.

    As it relates to Iraq and Iran at least. Aren't the largest importers of crude to the US Canada and the Saudis now?

    We're not leaving Iraq for Iran to take over. Forget it already.

    It's interesting that you mention the drawdown from my post, yet you edited out the one sentence of my post where I actually mentioned the rumored drawdown.

    When there were rumors of a troop draw down in Iraq last month, I was very pleased. The facts on the grounds changing significantly since then hasn't invalidated anything I've said.

    Is your hatred of President Trump so deep and pathological that you're unable to admit he can make a tactically sound decision?

    The War will eventually have to end. Our involvement in the region however, never will.

    ISIS.
    It is not about Iraq, but what will happen if the American presence leaves Iraq. Just look at what happened in Syria.

    the PMU will smash any attempted ISIS resurgence but the Sunnis. The only thing we have to do is stop our allies from supporting the worst terrorists/murderers on the planet.
    Remember that Iraq didn’t collapse due to a “power vacuum”

    it’s collapsed due to our and our allies support of shipping terrorists and weapons en masse to Syria. ISIS began in Syria, and then spread. As was the plan
