Iraqis now against Americans leaving

When I read this I was stunned. For nearly seven years American forces in Iraq fought in a restrained manner. They stood by as Iraqis destroyed Chaldean churches and had to deal with non stop attacks. China and France won the oil contracts not the US! This made the American public turn against the war and view the Iraqis as ingrates. This sour mood about Iraq is part of what propelled Barack Hussein Obama to the White House. Bush implemented the surge strategy which brought some measure of stability to Iraq. Now that we are leaving, The Iraqis want us to stay.

BAGHDAD (AFP) – A majority of Iraqis believe it was the wrong time for a major withdrawal of US combat troops, a poll said on Tuesday, with more than half also warning that it would have negative consequences.

When asked if it was the right time for American soldiers to leave — the US military earlier confirmed troop numbers in Iraq had fallen under 50,000 for the first time — 59.8 percent said no, compared to 39.5 percent who said yes.

Read the rest: Iraqis say ‘wrong time’ for US withdrawal

The saying “be careful what you wish for” is causing this opinion of Iraqis. They hated us and attacked us, now they want us to stay. America got very little out of the Iraq war other than removing Saddam. We got no oil and did nothing about the destruction of the Chaldean Christian community. We didn’t even give refugee status to the Christians. The Iraqis shouldn’t have launched those attacks on our troops or call for us to leave. They got what they wanted and now will regret it.

Personally, I don’t think we should leave Iraq as it’s a staging area we can use against the Saudis, Syrians and Iranians. But the decision is made and I personally couldn’t care less what happens to the Iraqi people except the Kurds who are true allies and deserve a state. The time is right for a Free Kurdistan!
