Total nonsensical hogwash. Sounds like State Department “stability” doctrine. Iraq is no longer a threat. This is unbelievably obvious. Iraq was a threat under Saddam.
Refute my analysis then. Who do you think is strong enough to stabilize the country once we're gone?
BTW- State Dept doctrine is to continue throwing money into a black hole.
Iraq is no longer a threat.
The lack of leadership makes it a threat to regional stability. Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Syria are currently jockeying for position in the country. The Iraqi Army is unable to defend the country and the Iraqi Police are corrupt to the core.
Iraq was a threat under Saddam.
To whom? The House of Saud? I don't recall Iraqi's attacking the US.
