Iraqi Parliament Pushes for Timetable on US Pullout

Always more resistant to open-ended foreign military presence than the nation’s executive branch, Iraq’s parliament has revealed a series of plans to start “reviewing” the US military presence. This is focused in particular on a timetable for the US pullout.

Iraq MP Ahmad al-Assadi said he expects the calls for a US withdrawal to at least double during the new parliament’s term, and that most are only prepared to accept the trainers and advisors described as filling a specific need.

This is to start with a review of the scale of the US presence, the needs of the Iraqi security forces, and the existing timetable. With ISIS effectively defeated in Iraq, most seem to lean toward needing few, if any, US troops at this point.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely suggest that the US military and Pentagon show a little restraint here.

Please remember who the current king-maker is in Iraq, even though he holds no office; this is Muqtada Al Sadr, the former leader of the Madhi Army, who insisted that the US had to leave precisely when the SOFA indicated they should, otherwise, all American military personnel were "fair game" for his soldiers.

Any attempt at a decap strike against him, will most probably be met with fierce rebellion from the Iraqi people, disgusted at how the former US-enabled government's corruption has laid Iraq bare to plunder and corruption.
