Those are really asinine examples Eed but then again considering the source…..<quoted text>
And after WW2 it was not for the American president to say American troops would stay in Germany, Italy? After the Korean conflict it not for the American president to leave a force?
"pdumb" are an idiot.
Both Germany and Japan were countries that declared war against us and were defeated. Were we ever at war with the Maliki government? No dumbass.
Occupation of these countries wasn't just the decision of the President of the US but under the auspices of the newly created UN and as relations between Japan and Germany became more normalized the presence of US troops were agreed to by mutual consent.
Our troops were sent to Korea to prevent Communist forces from over running the peninsula and were under the auspices of the United Nations. After the armistice US troops remained under a mutual defense pact agreed to by the government of South Korea.
Maliki decided he didn't want our troops in Iraq any longer and so did the Iraqi people. That's their decision.
If you want to see an idiot, look in the mirror.
