Guess who wants us back?

After rebuking a continued [and legally protected] US presence via a renewal of the Status of Forces Agreement in 2011....and the statement by new Iraqi PM rejecting ground forces just last month...the Provisional Council of Anbar Province is apparently leading an effort to have more Americans die for Iraq.
Iraqi officials have issued a desperate plea for America to bring US ground troops back to the embattled country, as heavily armed Islamic State militants came within striking distance of Baghdad. 
The warning came from Sabah al-Karhout, president of the provisional council of Anbar Province, the vast desert province to the west of Baghdad that has now largely fallen under jihadist control.

Thanks but no thanks. We took out an oppressive, yet stable Sunni counterweight to Iran...and enabled a Shari'a compliant Shia ally...and are surprised by the nine year disaster now being ground zero in the ever continuing war over Muhammad's ghost?


  1. I agree a thousand percent and it's now gotten to the point where I literally get nauseous whenever I have to hear the likes of schmucks like Bret Stephens (from the War Street Journal) and former Bush boot-licker, Marc Thiessen, pontificate on it (essentially offering up an open-ended commitment) - this, while totally ignoring as you say, the original policy's naivete, ham-handedness, recklessness, etc........Of course the fact that there are still people out who are there willing to listen is scary as well.

  2. I just did a post on this topic and I thank you sir for your inspiration.

  3. Heh, I am probably rarely inspirational! I hope to add to your previous, but I'm finally redeploying back home I'll be off the net for the next few days.
