Iraq May Serve As Cautionary Tale For Afghanistan

by Wochit 0:56 mins

The United States has been funneling tons of weapons into Iraq, including sniper rifles , tank rounds and missiles, but the country's U.S.-trained military has not been able to dislodge Jihadists who have seized control of territory in parts of western Iraq and held it for much of this year. The State Department said the United States has expedited the weapons sales in an effort to combat extremism and deepen relations with Iraq, since all U.S. forces withdrew from the country in 2011. The U.S. experience in Iraq this year in many ways exemplifies President Obama's foreign policy as laid out this week in his plans for the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2016.
