Fighting Breaks Out in Iraqi Green Zone as Joe Biden’s Shaky Foreign Policy Continues – Opinion

Don’t look now, but things are touching off within Iraq’s green zone as Joe Biden stares at another possible foreign policy failure.

You can see some of the scenes in the videos.

A lack of sleep is the root cause of unrest. Recently, a Shiite cleric called Moqtada al-Sadr announced his resignation. That’s apparently enough to take over the presidential police and to engage in open conflict in the green zone.

Notable is the fact that the State Department has disputed the claims that the embassy was being evacuated. According to Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin, those reports are “false.”

The White House, for its part, has remained silent in the chaos unfolding, making the same mistakes as with the devastating Afghanistan collapse, where statements were not made until hours later. Did the government get caught again flat-footed by this chaos?

Astonishing, despite Iran’s continued aggression, Joe Biden is still desperately seeking a new nuclear deal, being willing to give up the farm in the process. A more sane administration would be cutting off negotiations right now, but that’s not going to happen.

It is unlikely that Iraq will go anywhere. The infighting is only escalating and we have a US president who can’t be bothered to do anything but go on vacation and call his political opponents “fascists.” Certainly, Biden isn’t one capable of managing any kind of further escalation on the ground.

This is still a story in progress and RedState will keep you updated.
