Iraqi Lawmakers Criticize Trump Visit As Blow To Iraqi Sovereignty

Source: HuffPost/Reuters

Iraqi political and militia leaders condemned U.S. President Donald Trump’s surprise visit to U.S. troops in Iraq on Wednesday as a violation of Iraq’s sovereignty, and lawmakers said a meeting between Trump and Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi was canceled due to a disagreement over venue.

Sabah al Saadi, the leader of the Islah parliamentary bloc, called for an emergency session of parliament “to discuss this blatant violation of Iraq’s sovereignty and to stop these aggressive actions by Trump who should know his limits: The U.S. occupation of Iraq is over.”

Iraqi lawmakers told Reuters that the pair had disagreed over where their planned meeting should take place: Trump had asked to meet at the Ain al-Asad military base, an offer which Abdul Mahdi declined.

Qais al-Khazali, the leader of the powerful Iran-backed Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia said on Twitter, “Iraqis will respond with a parliamentary decision to oust your (U.S.) military forces. And if they do not leave, we have the experience and the
ability to remove them by other means that your forces are familiar with.”

So because Trump was too chickenshit to leave the air base and meet the Iraqi Prime Minister during his visit, he insulted the Iraqis and potentially destabilized the Iraqi government.

Shitler is a human wrecking ball.

1. If this visit was planned weeks ago... Mattis, Pompeo, and Mulvany weren't doing thier jobs.

Then again, Cheetos changes his mind whenever he farts.

3. But, but -

tRump has the "best people"! Kushner likely planned this trip, or wonder woman Ivanka? I doubt any planning went into it. tRump was going to his Florida hide-a-way until he shut down the government. His "vife" had to fly back from Florida when he was moaning about being all alone. The trip was probably hastily planned, to take the attention away from his lack of leadership in visiting the troops. He was complaining to the troops (who live in this dangerous place) about how they would not believe what they had to do to visit. Fly on AF 1 with the lights off and shades drawn. Poor, poor Donnie. Other leaders leave their wives at home to be safe when they visit. tRump seems to think his nudie model/escort has to be shown off, like some sort of trophy. The gop must be so proud of their president. Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. Not a decent, self respecting member to be found in the entire family.

4. Yep. But IQ45 doesn't think any country except the US is sovereign.
