The US has ordered all non-emergency government staff to leave Iraq immediately.
The move comes amid escalating tensions with Iran, after Washington last week said it had detected new and urgent threats from the country.

The US state department ordered the pullout of employees from both the embassy in Baghdad and its consulate in Erbil, the embassy said in a statement.
It said Iran and its proxy forces in the region were targeting its citizens and American interests.
On Sunday, the embassy advised Americans to avoid travel to Iraq, citing "heightened tensions".

The equal right of all citizens to health, education, work, food, security, culture, science, and wellbeing - that is, the same rights we proclaimed when we began our struggle, in addition to those which emerge from our dreams of justice and equality for all inhabitants of our world - is what I wish for all.

It was a casual remark over a lunch of salad, fish and red wine but future historians are likely to parse and ponder every word: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us any more."

Looking good Mr President.

Shi*t!  This is also being reported by CNN, WaPo and NY times for all non-emergency employees to leave amid tension in Iran.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page
