Pearle: State Department orders non-essential staff to leave Iraq amid escalating tensions with Iran

The U.S. military put its forces in Iraq on high alert and the State Department ordered all non-emergency employees Wednesday to leave the country immediately amid escalating tensions with Iran. It comes as some U.S. allies have expressed skepticism about the Trump administration’s claims that Iran poses a growing threat.

JCP:  Evacuating our embassy in Iraq….definitely rving

REI:  I just want the guys who say it is happening any moment now to be right just once, & the guy who says it is not happening to be wrong just once….

JimBake:  Rei…both will happen at the same time and yes, it will only need to be ONCE…and for all! 🙂
