US leaving Iraq.

BAGHDAD, Jan 6 (Reuters) - The United States-led military coalition against Islamic State said on Monday that it was pulling out of Iraq and would be repositioning forces over the next few days and weeks, a letter seen by Reuters showed.

“Sir, in deference to the sovereignty of the Republic of Iraq, and as requested by the Iraqi Parliament and the Prime Minister, CJTF-OIR will be repositioning forces over the course of the coming days and weeks to prepare for onward movement,” read a letter from United States Marine Corps Brigadier General William H. Seely III, the commanding general of Task Force Iraq. (Drudge)

Only God knows what is Trump’s next move.

Trump: “We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build…We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it.”
The president added that if Iraqi officials try to kick the United States out the country it would not leave on a “very friendly basis… We will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever,” Trump said. “It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame.”

(he also reiterated his intention to target cultural sites in Iran for payback to them)

But T rump is a pathological liar, so who knows?

But T rump is a pathological liar, so who knows?
Keep a close eye on FOX faux news, they're the ones making the calls, since they know how to sooth and communicate with the greedy baby.

The White House and now the Pentagon seem to be of the opinion that the Marine General who sent the letter about us complying (per law) with the direction by the sovereign state of Iraq to LEAVE, was just a mistake.

T rump will strive to avoid the repercussions of assassinating a foreign leader (and an ally of Iraq) on Iraqi homeland without even giving them a heads up. But T rump screwed the pooch on this one. We are either on our way out of Iraq now (unlikely) or we are occupying the sovereign state of Iraq (bingo).

The other major repercussions we have yet to see/feel. Iran will strike back. Then our CinC keeps promising that we will destroy 52 Iranian sites, some of them to include the War Crime of attacking cultural sites. T rump, of course, is above all laws, so breaking a few war crimes is no big whoop for him.

I just heard the Liar backing off of his repeated assertions that he would attack Iranian cultural sites. I am guessing that the Pentagon told him it wasn’t going to happen So until T rump has replaced all of the Generals who are not totally obsequious to him, who still hold their oaths to the Constitution ahead of kissing T rump ass, then T rump still has some limitations in the dictatorship that he is striving for. But that will change if T rump continues to retain power.

Do you know what a feint is, Tim? Martial art, said Sun Tzu, is deception. We westerners are too direct and straightforward because we have the mind of a raging bull. Trump, the old-time hustler, fights like a matador. He learnt the art as a businessman dealing with the Chinese.

I told you to sit back and watch the movie. The fight, on stage, is not between Trump and the Ayatollah.

Sree, T rump is no master of the art of war. Art of lies maybe. No matador. Were he a matador, he would suggest to the bull that the bull could either live a life of plenty or be crushed and butchered into dog meat. He would increase his threats to the bull until the bull charged, at which time T rump would throw his cape over the bull’s head and claim that he and the bull are now lovers. You say T rump learned the art of war by doing business with the Chinese. I suggest that he learned the art of corruption and mafia like strategies from the Russians.

T rump doesn’t use feints. He uses blusterous lies plus opposite lies. Was threatening to strike 52 sites in Iran including cultural sites, a feint? Or is his, for the moment, reconciliation the feint? Point is, if you “feint” constantly, then your feints are what you are. But hey, if you are right, the T rump must be the greatest Martial Artist of all time, because he personifies deception.

And what movie are you talking about? Dumb and dumber? Idiocracy?

Iraq has asked the US to leave Iraq, which we have refused to honor. This makes US an unwelcome occupying force instead of a welcome ally.

Way to go for building diplomatic relations around the world…
