Behold What is Possible Without America

America's Left wanted us to leave Iraq, and we're getting the opposite of what the Left said would result.

Jihadis in large numbers--including more Europeans--have flooded Iraq to seize large portions of the country's Sunni Arab areas in cooperation with Baathists still stinging from losing their grip on power. Kurds, Shias, and Sunni Arabs aren't getting along, to say the least. And religious minorities are being slaughtered.

I'd just like to remind people that our anti-war Left told us that the presence of American combat forces in Iraq was causing jihadis to flock to Iraq and that if only we left Iraq, Iraqis would work out their differences and figure things out.

Hell, it might be a Smurfy kite-flying paradise again.

We pulled the last of our combat forces out of Iraq in December 2011.

For the record.
