A U.S. exit from Iraq could ultimately be one of the most consequential results of the escalation in U.S.-Iran tensions, because it would significantly hamper the fight against ISIS and achieve a major Iranian objective.
The State Dept explicitly says it won't discuss US troop withdrawal w/ Iraq, even though that's what the Iraqi parliament & prime minister want. A redux of Iraq occupation & Pompeo's imperial hubris on full display. Unsustainable, illegal,& harms America https://t.co/knz2GoxPOm
