Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It isn't really, but it is more fuel to the fire.

The Iraqi parliament is set to discuss the removal of US forces from the Arab country, a senior Iraqi lawmaker said.

Ahmad al-Assadi, the leader of the Iraqi Construction Alliance, said the legislators will step up their demands that the Iraqi government force US troops leave the country, Arabic-language Arabi21 online newspaper reported.

Calls for the withdrawal of US troops had begun during the last legislature, but lawmakers are now seeking a "clear timetable" for a pullout, he said.

And that was in November. IIRC, the reference to last parliament was a vote last spring that stated quite clearly that the Iraqi parliament wants the US troops out. So maybe Trump will soon succeed in getting those troops out too.
