Time to withdraw the troops

I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.

We have about 800 soldiers there now to protect Americans. All Americans need to get out of Iraq now.

Soldiers deployed in Iraq need to assist with the evacuation of all Americans. It is only a matter of time before the state of Iraq becomes part of the caliphate known as the State of Islam.

The United States of America spent more than $25 million training the Iraqi Army. This army so far has only lost ground to soldiers of the State of Islam.

Prior to the State of Islam being declared, Iraqi soldiers threw down their weapons and ran. When they were captured, they were summarily executed.

As always, wars are won in the will. The Iraqi army does not have the courage to put up a fight.

Their adversaries have the will to win; they are well-equipped and well-financed.

It is more than probable that factions that are part of Iraq now will make deals to safeguard their people and property with the leadership of the State of Islam.

Even if Iraq gets technically superior weapons from Russia or Iran, it will still lose in the end. The Iraqi army does not have the will to win.

The Iraqi people are not happy with the government in Baghdad. The newly declared State of Islam has the potential to win the hearts and minds of the people.

Bring our soldiers home!
