Iraqi politicians yesterday hit back at US President Donald Trump after he said that he plans to keep US forces in the country to spy on Iran.
Iraqi President Barham Saleh said Monday that Trump did not ask for permission to use Iraqi territory to monitor Iran and said the Iraqi constitution forbids the use of Iraq as a base to threaten the interests or security of neighboring countries.
"US hostility has led it to support dictators, butchers & extremists, who've only brought ruin to our region", Zarif wrote in his tweet. The president later declared that he would also be pulling some 7,000 USA troops out of Afghanistan, where his administration is involved in peace talks with the Taliban-something that also got a shoutout in tonight's speech.
Although he would later slow down the timetable for the troop withdrawal, the president still wants USA troops to leave Syria. "It does have certain components that are still left in it, although they are dispersed and disaggregated they have the capability of coming back together if we don't", Votel said. The Senate has voted cloture on S.1, the United States - Israel Security Assistance Authorization Bill.
"Above all, friend and foe alike must never doubt this Nation's power and will to defend our people".
However, Trump's sudden announcement in December that he would withdraw US forces from Syria alarmed allies and many current and former USA officials, who worry that Islamic State militants remain a threat.
Trump also tasked the Pentagon late previous year to start making plans for cutting the US force in Afghanistan in half.

And when they looked at the images Hubble sent back, they noticed a small galaxy hiding behind the cluster's brighter stars. Instead, those scientists discovered something else: an entire galaxy hiding behind this cluster of stars in our galaxy.
"Mr. West, your former boss, Secretary Mattis, disagreed with the President's plan to withdraw from Syria".
Speaking at the State Department, Trump said that US-led troops and their Kurdish allies had "liberated virtually all of the territory" from the jihadists who once controlled a vast stretch of Syria and Iraq in a self-styled caliphate. "We hope that the two leaders take more specific and practical actions in Vietnam". As his economic advisers work to complete a trade deal with China, Trump said any agreement "must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs". "They used the internet brilliantly but now it's not so brilliant and now the people on the Internet that used to look up to them and say how wonderful and brilliant they are [are] not thinking of them as being so brilliant because they've been decimated", he said.
"I hope you can pass the USMCA into law so we can bring back our manufacturing jobs in even greater numbers, expand American agriculture, protect intellectual property, and ensure that more cars are proudly stamped with our four attractive words: 'Made in the U.S.A'".
Iraq's government plays a delicate balancing act between its two main allies, Washington and Tehran.
Senate Republicans seldom buck Trump on anything, but they have become increasingly agitated lately over his administration's foreign policy.
"He was one of the Americans who helped rescue Joshua from that hell on earth", Trump said.
