Thumbs down No more ground troops...

The U.S. State Department has ordered "non-emergency U.S. government employees" to leave its embassy in Baghdad and its consulate in Erbil.

"The U.S. government's ability to provide routine and emergency services to U.S. citizens in Iraq is extremely limited," the department said in statement early Wednesday.

It has also warned citizens about traveling to Iraq.

The U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Sunday tweeted that it was advising "all U.S. citizens of heightened tensions in Iraq and the requirement to remain vigilant."

"Do not travel to Iraq due to terrorism, kidnapping and armed conflict," the statement said.

That warning also urged U.S. citizens to avoid places known as gathering places for U.S. citizens and to keep a low profile.

We have threatened to send 120,000 ground forces there. When President Trump was questioned about the 120,000 he shouted we are prepared to send a hell of a lot more than that.
My take on that is why send ground forces into wars we can't win with ground forces? We have made that same mistake since the Vietnam war. Our satellites will show us exactly where our air strikes are needed. Bomb as his campaign promises said, "we'll bomb the shi* outta them!" Well, it's time! He does have a fleet of aircraft carriers and their support speeding to the Persian gulf. Take them out and others will follow, make American Great Again. You need work for the 120,000, guard our borders!
