The left won't like it but Pres BO will keep troops in Iraq!

During Donald Trump's brief campaign for president, he often warned us about Iran taking over Iraq as soon as we left. 

Unfortunately, this point got lost in all of the "media mania" and the stories about the birth certificate.

However, Mr Trump was exactly right: Iran Funnels New Weapons to Iraq and Afghanistan

In simple terms:  We leave on Monday and Iran walks in on Tuesday!

Today, we read that the Obama administration is planning to keep about 10,000 troops in Iraq, or beyond the agreement that Pres Bush signed with Iraq in 2008.

Frankly, I've always felt that keeping a permanent force in Iraq made sense and would protect US interests in the region.
