US Announces Partial Withdrawal Of Troops From Afghanistan And Iraq

Click to see the full-size image

On November 17, Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller announced that the US will withdraw 500 troops from Iraq and 2,000 from Afghanistan before January 15, 2021.

“I celebrate this day as we continue the president’s consistent progress in completing the mission we began two decades ago,” Miller said. According to him, the decision was a “collaborative” one between Trump and senior US military leaders.

Miller added that negotiations with the Taliban are still “ongoing.” Earlier, Washington signed an agreement with the Taliban promising a full troop withdrawal from Afghanistan by mid-2021 if they upheld agreed-upon counterterrorism measures. As a result Taliban forces halted attacks on US troops in Afghanistan. However, the final deal is yet to be reached.

Meanwhile, the peace between the Taliban and the US-backed Kabul government has not been reached and the group has been developing advance on positions of government forces in several regions.

So that they can keep Mossad and the IDF embedded in Iraq and have Iraqi airspace available to attack Iraq’s neighbors.

Partial withdrawal # 4785 . Does a partial withdrawal work in preventing pregnancy ?

“In Iraq, the number of US troops will be cut by 500 to 2,500, while the number of service personnel in Afghanistan will fall from 4,500 to about 2,500.”

Including contractors the US probably has 5,000 security personnel in Iraq. 500 is 10%.

He’s losing in court. If there’s the type of fraud that he and many others claim. It should show up in the recounts. But the recounts and the court rulings from what I’ve seen are of questionable integrity. And appear to be part of the alleged fraud.

RichardD

What sort of recount results do you think that you’re going to get when the people accused of felony elections fraud are the ones doing the recounts to see if they committed felony elections fraud?

JIMI JAMES

Good another gimp bites the dust,as if its cyber airwaves decide the law of the lands:
Useless deep state blowjobs,tried in vain to brand their gimp the national elect hero,fkn lol!

Frankly, the US is bleeding at home and foodlines grow to miles and the cost of these lost wars destroys the bankrupt economy. It is a certain sign of US insanity and addiction to wars.

Potato Man
