Hopefully no one actually believes that a vote by the Iraqi Parliament will force the withdrawal of US troops. We should not forget that Madeleine Albright said the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children were ‘worth it’ to accomplish US policy goals in Iraq. We should not forget what US-NATO forces did to Mosul under the guise of taking out ISIS. Tens of thousands of civilians were displaced, arrested, buried in rubble from US bombing. The US occupation is a monstrous, merciless one which will only be ended by Iraqi political power. The only political power that can force a US-NATO & Iranian withdrawal is the Iraqis who are protesting in the streets in concert with principled antiwar opposition around the world.
