BREAKING: United States Still Located Just East of Syria
The Obama administration plans to bolster the American military presence in the Persian Gulf after it withdraws the remaining troops from Iraq this year, according to officials and diplomats...
"We will have a robust continuing presence throughout the region, which is proof of our ongoing commitment to Iraq and to the future of that region, which holds such promise and should be freed from outside interference to continue on a pathway to democracy,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in Tajikistan after the president’s announcement.
Everyone in the mideast will be thrilled that their neighbor the United States will be protecting them from outside interference. The most likely interlopers who might try to influence the region include Iraq and Iran, both of which are located just north of Mexico.
People with long memories might also remember the disgusting attempt by Iran to influence itself.
