POTUS Obama throws out a gesture to his partisans by announcing the withdrawal of all US troops in Iraq by year's end.
The Kurds will dig in and do fine.
Baghdad is now under the boot of Tehran. POTUS aims to get the US troops out of Afghanistan also, but 2014 if he is still in office. The US exit from the Middle East creates the vacuum that Riyadh will battle Tehran to fill.
Reports arrive that Maliki blocked a transitionary force, because he bows to the Tehran stooge Sadr.
The battle lines in the ummah are drawn sharply. Tehran-Baghdad-Damascus-Beirut will fight to the death with Cairo-Riyadh-Amman-Ankara.
The Neo-Ottomans arise with Europe at their right hand and Tehran at their left. The US is out of the region as a power.
Russia can and will fill the vacuum. For the moment, Baghdad falls again, this time to the Shi'a confederation. Mission accomplished for Tehran. The Sunni confederation fights back at Syria.
The US is not consulted.
——some would say several years.-——
Actually, it has been decades. Iran sent armed warriors to Mecca many many years ago
Absolutley. We are "civilians accompanying US Forces." When they're gone, we're gone.
The contractor numbers have been steadily drawing down along with troop numbers.
