According to Fox News, moments after acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller announced that the U.S. would withdraw 500 troops from Iraq and 2000 from Afghanistan, Iraqi intelligence said at least four rockets were fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

“Many here at the Pentagon warned troop withdrawals could tempt the Shia militias to test US resolve,” tweets Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin.

  1. One of these days, hopefully in my lifetime, I wish that Iraqis and so many other angry folks in the Middle East will grow up, drop their hatred of Israel & the West, and join the 21st Century.

    This could be a truly wonderful world if people who conscientiously have decided to remain in the Stone Age/Dark Ages would join the rest of the civilized population on this planet. Perhaps Navy or Air Force planes could drop iPhones and loaves of Pepperidge Farm pumpkin spiced bread into impoverished areas of Baghdad, Aleppo, Damascus, Kabul and Islamabad (just to name a few locales) as goodwill and humanitarian gestures from the United States?

    In all seriousness, this endless war in the ‘cradle of civilization’ has to cease. I loathe Michael Moore but I agree with his idea that the US/Allied forces should create irrigation systems in these desert countries as peacekeeping initiatives that will reduce hunger and poverty. We have to start somewhere…
