The lack of a Status of Forces agreement is the reason the Obama administration repeatedly gives for the ill-thought and ill-conceived pull-out of American troops from Iraq, a move that lead directly to the buildup of ISIS and the horror they have caused in the Middle East, and around the world.
So now, in the face of more terror than the world has ever seen before, Obama is putting troops back into Iraq, and do you think we have a Status of Forces agreement in place to protect our military people there? No. Now Obama is good with the lack of a Status of Forces agreement to protect the troops, the very thing he appeared to be so very concerned about when he performed his Iraqi retreat.
Obama was too anti-war to deign to negotiate with the president of Iraq and apply some pressure to come to an agreement for the Status of Forces, so he just withdrew the troops and claimed victory. Our idiot president wouldn’t listen to his military advisors when he yanked all military forces from a theater that had been pacified, and against their advice removed all military people, so now he is having to re-introduce troops in the hope that some peace can be found there.
The false notion that the former Iraqi president would not permit a Status of Forces to be put in place is just one of thousands of lies that Obama spreads. Obama didn’t like the fighting in Iraq because the war was begun by George Bush, and Iraq had been pacified under the Bush administration, so of course, Obama must undo the Bush success by removing the troops and then claiming that nothing was really accomplished there. But now our Obama is back-tracking on his brilliant decision and is sending troops back. But of course he claims that they are not going to war. No, they are just advisors and instructors, but they are subject to being wounded and killed just like in a real, actual, gun-shooting war.
Unfortunately the take-over of Iraq and Syria by ISIS is now a fait accompli, and American lives have to be risked, again, because of another foolish decision made by Obama. This president, who has to be taught logic and good judgement as an on-the-job-training effort, is a failure at everything, except playing golf.
It’s unfortunate, and it’s incontrovertible, that every decision Obama has made was from a leftist ideological position, and it was wrong and proved to be a detriment to the United States.
