Iraqi Parliament To Vote On Bill That Would Ban US Military Troops From Iraq

Despite this, time and again US-Iraqi relations have come to be defined by US hostility toward neighboring Iran, and Iraq’s desire to not get mixed up in that.

So while Iraq’s parliament was already bristling under Pentagon talk of staying in Iraq, and Trump saying that the US was staying in Iraq to “keep an eye on Iran,” the recent escalation of US rhetoric about a war against Iran has sparked action within parliament.

On Saturday, Iraq will be voting on a bill that would aim to expel all foreign troops from Iraqi soil, and singles out US troops in particular as needing to leave. The bill is endorsed by Iraq’s top two Shi’ite blocs, and is expected to pass fairly easily.

Quote:What happens then is the real question.

Iraq’s parliament is already being spun as “pro-Iran factions,” and it’s been a long time since US officials, Pentagon or otherwise, gave any indication that they thought staying in Iraq was up to the Iraqi government.

So while the Iraqi Prime Minister is warning the US that they can’t use Iraq to launch a war on Iran, the US is browbeating Iraq over its government-aligned Shi’ite militias, and doing everything they can to try to portray that Shi’ite-dominated Iraqi government as effectively in league with the Iranians, and subsequently a threat to US interests.

No matter what happens, it seems certain US-Iraqi ties will suffer for it.

Corporate greed is the devil.

After killing millions of Iraqis, it's about time to oust the evil empire from Iraq. The more countries that dump the US the more peaceful the Middle East will become.

Well that's good news.


But I'm puzzled as to why they are there in the first place.


Withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq

[...]

Full withdrawal (2011)

See also: U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement

With the collapse of discussions about extending the stay of U.S. troops, President Obama announced the full withdrawal of troops from Iraq, as previously scheduled, on 21 October 2011. The U.S. retained an embassy in Baghdad with some 17,000 personnel,[37] consulates in Basra, Mosul and Kirkuk, which have been allocated more than 1,000 staff each, and between 4,000 and 5,000 defense contractors. President Obama and al-Maliki outlined a broad agenda for post-war cooperation without American troops in Iraq during a joint press conference on 12 December 2011 at the White House. This agenda included cooperation on energy, trade and education as well as cooperation in security, counter-terrorism, economic development and strengthening Iraq's institutions. Both leaders said their countries would maintain strong security, diplomatic and economic ties after the last U.S. combat forces withdraw.

President Barack Obama paid tribute to the troops who served in Iraq on 14 December 2011, at the Fort Bragg military base in North Carolina. As the last of the American troops prepared to exit Iraq, he said the United States was leaving behind a "sovereign, stable and self-reliant" Iraq. On 15 December, an American military ceremony was held in Baghdad putting a formal end to the U.S. mission in Iraq. The last 500 soldiers left Iraq on the morning of 18 December 2011... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withdrawal..._from_Iraq

The US is the small Satan. When it takes over a place, it is hard to get them out. God willing, Iraq will be free of it's Zionist oppressors and murderers.

As they should. The US has no business being over there.

Except the claim "US interests" which is big oil. And also Big Israel. chuckle

RE: Iraqi Parliament To Vote On Bill That Would Ban US Military Troops From Iraq
Here is the real story



Snip:

In a statement issued to local media outlets, the committee members specifically cited Mr. Trump’s demands that allies pay more to support the costs of American troop deployments as a key factor behind the proposed legislation.

“Iraq will not become a milk cow for the U.S. We will not comply with U.S. demands that we pay for U.S. presence in Iraq. We will vote on a law soon requiring the end of foreign forces in Iraq,” committee members said in a statement, Iraqi News Network reported.

RE: Iraqi Parliament To Vote On Bill That Would Ban US Military Troops From Iraq
I have been thinking about the implications of this new policy by Iraq. Obviously Iraq sees the US about to devastate Iran like they did Iraq and Iraqis don't want any part of it. They already have told the US they can't use any base in Iraq to attack Iran. That is why the US withdrew it's people from out of the immense Embassy in Iraq and some bases. NOW, if Iraq kicks out all US soldiers that means the US can't use Iraq to supply Syria either, so the US loses it's ability to project war and misery on Syria. So this is probably worried the war hawks in the US, this means a war with Iran also means a war with Iraq as well, at least a lot of pushback from Iraq and perhaps others. By threatening Iran the US is losing a BIG prize, bases in Iraq.
