BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Iraqi Parliament has begun their session today to vote on whether or not to expel the U.S. Armed Forces from the country.

According to reports, the Iraqi Parliament was delayed on Sunday after they initially failed to reach quorum; however, enough ministers have arrived over the last hour to begin the session.

If the Iraqi Parliament votes to expel the U.S. Armed Forces from Iraq, this would mark the first time since 2003 that American troops were not inside the country.

The vote comes just three days after the U.S. Armed Forces assassinated the leader of the Quds Force Qassem Soleimani as he left the Baghdad International Airport.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Let’s hope they find the backbone to give them the boot!

Otherwise Iraq will lose whatever semblance of sovereignty they may have had :-/

Good luck getting US out even if vote passes – they will just ignore it.
