    Exclamation Trump threatens Iraq with crippling sanctions if US troops are expelled

    Hopefully this is not part of some GOPA wing 'Quid Pro Likud' policy to appease war profiteers/globalist neocons who don't want the forever occupations and wars bloody gravy train to end.

    Trump threatens Iraq with crippling sanctions if US troops are expelled

    6 January 2020

    Donald Trump has threatened Iraq with "sanctions like they've never seen before" President Trump has threatened severe sanctions against Iraq after its parliament called on US troops to leave the country.

    Speaking from the presidential plane, Mr Trump said that if Iraq asked US forces to depart on an unfriendly basis, "we will charge them sanctions like they've never seen before, ever. It'll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame."

    'No blank check for war': House votes to curb Trump's ability to strike Iran, other targets

    Deirdre Shesgreen

    WASHINGTON – The House voted Thursday to sharply limit President Donald Trump's ability to launch a military strike against Iran and to repeal the 2002 law that authorized the Iraq war, which has been used as justification for other U.S. military operations.
    Democrats said the two votes were vital to reining in what they see as a reckless and impulsive president, pointing to his decision to authorize a U.S. drone strike that killed Gen. Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad on Jan. 2.

    We will leave:

    Good news: An Iraqi committee has been formed to oversee the implementation of the withdrawal of all foreign forces from #Iraq, including the US forces. The US, UK, France, and tens of countries involved are informed of the procedure. #QassemSoleimani

    The new Prime Minister promised to conclude the full withdrawal of all Foreign Forces from #Iraq in the next 3 months.
    Contracts with military trainers will be review in a later stage. However, keep in mind that most of Iraqi armament is made in the USA.
