Obama flip-flops on Iraq and notifies congress of troop deployment.
Obama goes against what he said and sends 275 troops to Iraq.
Three days ago President Obama made a statement declaring that no troops will be sent to Iraq. Shockingly we learn that is not true. Obama on Monday announced that he will deploy 275 troops to Iraq whose main purpose is to “provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.”
“The force is deploying for the purpose of protecting U.S. citizens and property, if necessary, and is equipped for combat,” Obama wrote in a letter to Congress. “This force will remain in Iraq until the security situation becomes such that it is no longer needed.” According to USA Today, the Pentagon said one hundred of the troops were moved into the region to help embassy security. According to HotAir, these troops are made up of “special forces”. According to the Pentagon and the Huffington Post the troops on standby could “provide airfield management, security, and logistics support, if required.”
Secretary of State John Kerry stated he’s even willing to work alongside Iran’s forces. We spent twelve years trying to restructure and bring democracy to country in an area where democracy just can’t work. This current civil war is a result of both President Obama and former President W. Bush’s interference in Iraq. We’ve given Iraq the tools to rebuild but yet they fail, so let’s turn around and come back home. Fighting for Iraq has cost us too many lives and too much money. Let Iraq burn; who would deny a fight between Iraq and Iran would be good.
What do you think, intervene in Iraq or just go home?
