I don’t have a problem now saying we should begin removing troops from that god awful country, and let them dig their own holes. Then, we should start pulling out even further from Iraq, and let them sort out their messes.
What we can leave in place is the reality that we will return if any of those miscreants takes action against the United States, ever again.
Otherwise, they are simply not worth what we have given, not after today.
We never wanted to conquer that place, we had no interest. We were after one man and his cabal of miscreants. We now have the head of the snake and several of his underlings and we are finished with them.
