Iraq’s ingrate legislature passed a resolution on Sunday demanding their government kick American troops out of the country.
“The government commits to revoke its request for assistance from the international coalition fighting Islamic State due to the end of military operations in Iraq and the achievement of victory,” the resolution read.
“The Iraqi government must work to end the presence of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil and prohibit them from using its land, airspace or water for any reason.”
The AP reported that the resolution was passed mostly by the Shiite members of the Council of Representatives of Iraq, who are the majority of the members, and that many Sunni members and Kurdish members stayed away and did not attend the vote, in protest.
Axios adds “The resolution passed today calls not only on U.S. troops to leave Iraq, but the entire international coalition fighting the Islamic State.”
It’s a non-binding resolution, but the pressure to pass it comes right from the Prime Minister, who was mourning it up at Qassem Soleimani’s funeral.
Must be a Democrat.
