It’s time for President Trump to fully withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq. Iraq must assume responsibility for its own security.
Remaining actively engaged militarily in the Middle East only deepens our strategic failure and extends the forever war that Trump has repeatedly criticized.

If military actions continue to be taken abroad by the inclinations of a single person, the nation could find itself plunged into a war it would not have chosen if its people were consulted.
