Looks like the Trump administration’s reckless and shocking aggression will finally result in the expulsion of the US from Iraq. https://t.co/YnGtxo9VDF— Rania Khalek (@RaniaKhalek) January 3, 2020

Iraq-U.S. relations are unraveling after assassination of Iranian general. Iraqi leaders are denouncing the killing of Soleimani, calling it a flagrant breach of the terms of U.S. forces in Iraq. Pressure now mounting to expel U.S. troops. https://t.co/zTGDHycMLN— JamesVGrimaldi (@JamesVGrimaldi) January 3, 2020
#Iraq: “We have a democratic process today, and if the law to expel US forces is legislated, we will resort to voting, and God willing, we will garner enough votes to have it passed.” https://t.co/ZTgFO0ZeTi— Rudaw English (@RudawEnglish) January 2, 2020
“Suleimani may, with his death, have already achieved the greatest revenge of all, and without firing a single bullet: namely, his ultimate objective of ending the US military presence in Iraq” https://t.co/YOyxeLy12q— Martin Hodgson (@MartinxHodgson) January 3, 2020
We will be greeted as liberators in Tehran!
BTW, we are issuing a travel warning to Americans not to travel to Iraq!
“Iraq’s Speaker of Parliament Mohammed al Halbousi vowed to “put an end to U.S. presence” in Iraq after President Trump ordered airstrikes that killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces boss Mahdi al Muhandis in Baghdad on Thursday.
“Yesterday’s targeting of a military commander in Iraq’s armed forces near Baghdad International Airport is a flagrant breach of sovereignty and violation of international agreements,” a statement from Halbousi read.
Halbousi added that Iraq “must avoid becoming a battlefield or a side in any regional or international conflict.” …”
Meanwhile, Trump is succeeding in getting the United States kicked out of Iraq, which in the ultimate irony is about to democratically vote to get rid of all the American troops that Trump has sent to Iraq. Understandably, Iraq doesn’t wanted to be plunged into another decade of hell and everyone there except the Kurds – Sunni or Shi’ite – hates the United States.
