Republican Party and military strategists of the U.S. promote idea of new American invasion in Iraq. For instance, Sen. Lindsey Graham, a 2016 candidate for president, calls for sending 10,000 troops to Iraq. Further, GOP presidential hopefuls Rick Perry, Scott Walker and George Pataki say they’re open to the idea. They’ve found an ally in well-known Republican hawk Sen. John McCain.
In 2007, the U.S. deployed 30,000 troops in Iraq. Last week, two key architects of George W. Bush’s 2007 troop surge told the Senate that up to 20,000 additional U.S. troops are needed to defeat the Islamic State (ISIS). However, the will and capacity of the U.S. to invade Middle East contries again and again depepend on the real goals of American oligarchy.
After withdrawing the last U.S. roops from Iraq at the end of 2011, Obama has sent 3,000 back to the country since last summer, but it seems not enough. The new wave of ‘liberatiors’ is coming.
