Tsar Alexander

I knew this day would come. I have known since we withdrew our troops in 2011 that eventually the Iraqi “state” would go the way of South Vietnam–complete with panicked helicopter evacuations from a US embassy and desperate people mobbing the embassy (coming soon).

Let’s hope those Iranian troops (2 battalions as of now), as well as non radical Iraqis (Shiites, Kurds, and Sunnis alike) in Iraq can help keep some of the radical Sunni terrorism in check. I really fear Iraq (at least large parts of it) turning into a terror state and being a launching point for another 9/11 or worse.
