America’s Dwindling Power in Iraq Paves Way for Iran’s Conquest

As the U.S. conducts another drawdown in Iraq, Iran continues to push toward Jerusalem.

BY WARREN REINSCH

United States Gen. Frank McKenzie announced on Wednesday that the U.S. would soon withdraw 2,200 troops from Iraq, hoping to accomplish this before Election Day on November 3. Despite the Trump administration’s optimism about fulfilling its campaign promise to bring the troops home, this withdrawal signifies another Iranian victory in the chain of American defeats.

"The United States has decided to reduce our troop presence in Iraq from about 5,200 to 3,000 troops during the month of September," said General McKenzie. "This reduced footprint allows us to continue advising and assisting our Iraqi partners in rooting out the final remnants of [the Islamic State] in Iraq and ensuring its enduring defeat."
