And on what do you base this?
The fact he leaves troops and military bases in Iraq and says we are not there anymore.
It's only 30k diplomatic defense forces and a really big embassy
He can call it whatever he wants. The fact is the people of Iraq want us out of there and we continue to incite violence by staying there in whatever form.
You're also ignoring the PMCs that fight the middle-east resistance on our dime.
I'm for a country being in charge of itself as much as the next, but I don't think the "people want"ing something is our concern-- it's the concern of their government, which lets us do what it is you're saying is so bad for them. Instead of preaching to the choir, why don't you go there and preach to their government?
