    US orders American civilians out of Iraq as tensions with Iran escalate.....

    HIGH ALERT: U.S. Central Command, which has responsibility for most of the Middle East, issued a statement late yesterday saying that all troops assigned to Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S.-led counter ISIS coalition, had been placed on “a high level of alert,” based on “credible and possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq.”


    GET OUT: Today the State Department ordered civilian “non-emergency U.S. government employees” to leave Iraq. The order applies to staff at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad and the U.S. consulate in Erbil, according to a security alert on the embassy website.


    “Normal visa services at both posts will be temporarily suspended,” the statement says. “The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Iraq.” It advises that Americans “Avoid U.S. facilities within Iraq.”.....snip~

    Ordered all non essential personnel out of Iraq. Naturally the Anti Americans will say the US just making things up. Yet the threats by the Iranians in Iraq have gone all thru the Country of Iraq.


    Rumor has it that Trump is considering sending 120k Troops to the ME. Bombers have been sent with a CSG being sent to the region. Plus all ships in Bahrain are on high alert. We also might be sending another CSG into the region. More than likely Club Med. Thoughts.

    So if those troops were not STILL in Iraq they wouldn't be in danger?

    The Troops will always have a risk. Its the Civilians in Iraq. US Civilians that are working there. The State Dept seems to think the threats are real. And we know how the State Dept is still full of Democrats. So Trump just can't be blamed.


    Did you want to say ALL US Civilians shouldn't work overseas too?

    John Bolton and Bombpeo and Agent Orange want their war!

    Nuttyahoo has ordered Trump to bomb Iran to do Izrahells bidding for them!

    Oh Boy! Be the first one on your block to bring your boy home in a box!

    This is the perfect DIVERSION from Trumps troubles!

    We've all seen this before and here it is again. Same plan same rhetoric different president

    The options reviewed include one plan to send more than 100,000 US forces to the Middle East to take military action to delay Iran's nuclear program if it becomes a serious threat, the official said.
    These reports follow several weeks of intensifying US sanctions and restrictions against Iran, as well as warnings from Washington about a heightened Iranian threat to US troops in the region that, according to Bolton, required the swift deployment of a Navy strike group and bomber to the Persian Gulf.
    just substitute the word Iran to Iraq

    Trump said if he had to send troop in it would be a lot more than 120,000. He isn't going to go all half-assed if has to go in.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Don campaigned on getting us out of the middle east.
    Funny how that changed.
    He was hellbent on bring home the troops from Syria.
    Now he's prepping to send even more there than before.
    Bolton and Pompeo are going to get their war.
    It's not the bridges burned that bother me but the ones that I never crossed
