I can understand yelping at Obama for pulling out of Iraq (despite the fact that it was largely on Bush’s timeline), but saying you’re gonna put the troops back in? What the hell, man.
“I would send troops back into Iraq,” Rick Perry told a New Hampshire audience at Saturday night’s GOP debate, warning that without yet another military operation in Iraq it would fall under the influence of neighboring Iran.
“I think it’s a huge error for us,” he said. “We’re going to see Iran in my opinion, move back in at literally the speed of light. They’re going to move back in. And all of the work we’ve done — every young man that has lost his life in that country will have been for nothing. Because we’ve got a president that does not understand what’s going on in that region.”
Iran is the new Iraq. If the economic criticisms don’t gain traction, they’re going to start spending as much time as possible blabbering about how Iran is going to kill us all and we have to start a war with them. So… buckle up.
