During the GOP presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire on Saturday, Texas Governor Rick Perry said he “would send troops back into Iraq" (video below).
Gov. Perry than attacked President Obama for honoring the withdrawal deal made between Iraq and President Bush. Gov. Perry also claimed that Iran would take over Iraq, “literally at the speed of light.”
A self-proclaimed "fiscal conservative," Gov. Perry did not mention how he would pay for his re-invasion of Iraq. The eight years of war that cost the lives of 4,400 U.S. troops and cost between $3 trillion and $5 trillion.
