The beginning has been made: Iraq is preparing for the withdrawal of American troops


We recently reported how the parliament of Iraq demanded withdraw US troops from the country, and from Washington informedthat Tehran brought its missile troops on full alert. And so, it became known that official Baghdad began preparing a mechanism for the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country.


This was told to the media by the representative of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Iraq, Abdel Kerim Half. He specified that the government has already limited the movement (ground and air) of the forces and means of the international coalition and "will not allow them to move anywhere."

The activities of the international coalition in Iraq will be limited to consultations, armaments and training of military personnel, and the armed forces will withdraw from Iraq <...> The latest American strikes are stupidity about which it is impossible to remain silent

- said Half.

A senior Iraqi military emphasized that Washington did not inform the Iraqi general command of its operations.

It should be recalled that on January 3, 2020, the Americans killed in Iran, using a missile “defensive strike”, Iranian general Suleimani. Before this, December 29, 2019, U.S. aviation inflicted a number of similar “defensive strikes” against the facilities of the Shiite organization Kataib Hezbollah in Iraq and Syria. This was allegedly done in response to the attacks of this movement against American targets, military personnel and personnel stationed in Iraq. By the way, it was after the specified bombing at the end of 2019 that the indignant local Shiites went to storm the US Embassy in Baghdad. So, it is not for nothing that the Iraqi authorities regarded the “defensive attacks” of the Americans as a violation of the conditions for the deployment of US troops in their country.

    If they restrict movement really, and not blah blah blah, the Americans will have a hard time.
    However, in Iraq there are about 100 thousand American PMCs. The strength is strong ...

      Dream, any blockade against the US armed forces in Iraq will be seen by the United States as an act of aggression against the United States ...
      Iraqi comrade Half made a statement to Iran, showing that Iraq was not involved in the killing of an Iranian general ...

      ... in Iraq about 100 thousand American PMCs.

        Do you really think that 5 thousand people of official forces control half a million square kilometers? Including oil fields that only US citizens work on?

        Yes, exactly 100 thousand PMCs provide real occupation and trouble-free robbery of Iraq. It is PMCashnikov who accounts for 200 corpses per day of civilians whom Trump kills.

            After the execution on the square in Baghdad, BlackWater announced these figures. 85-100 thousand. PMC fighters of 20-25 companies. Formally, they are busy protecting American citizens.
            The shooters were sentenced to life in prison and pardoned in the courtroom. An additional article of the verdict was to change the name of the company. She became the Academy, 8 thousand of which are in Ukraine. The former BlackWater executive "retired" and invested in oil refining in Ukraine.

    The entry of the international coalition forces into Iraq was based on the request of the Iraqi government in the framework of the law adopted by parliament (Law No. 52 of 2008). In accordance with the Iraqi constitution, this law can only be repealed by another law. At the meeting on Sunday, some factions were absent, in particular, Sunni and Kurdish. It is only a demand for the withdrawal of troops, while there is no bill that would mean the seriousness of intentions to act in this direction.

          Oyo Sarkazmi The test tube with white powder was not a "fake", but only symbolized the chemical weapons that Saddam's Iraq had, which he developed and stockpiled, the inspection of which he systematically sabotaged, contrary to the decision of the UN Security Council, and which he threatened the world. Would someone drag a test tube with a real agent to the UN Security Council meeting?
          The Security Council sanctioned this invasion, and Russia, among others, voted for it. Although for a legitimate war, according to international law, a decision of a political body like the UN is not required. 
          Other reasons were Saddam’s unprovoked invasion of Kuwait and the annexation of the latter. As well as an unprovoked bombardment of Israel with 39 Scud missiles. 
          There were other very good reasons, each of which was a good reason for the invasion of Iraq.

            No, comrade, there was no Security Council sanction. The invasion was carried out by order of the President (read - the Irish mafia group), and supported by lackeys from NATO. What didn’t really help - all the oil companies of the Allies, and Russia, in addition, were thrown out of the oil fields. The massacres in the streets of the cities, the transformation of Saddam's Abu Ghraib into a zone of extermination, with the cheerful sergeant Lindy Ingland, did not shake the belief in the holiness of the American President in the Western European democracies. He does not hesitate even now - Macron, Merkel and Johnson urge Iraqis to continue to endure torture, murder and robbery.

            Scudam Saddam started shooting after the invasion. You are confusing cause and effect. The only real reason is the desire to profit from oil, after the bankruptcy of the company with the participation of Bush Jr., Everton. Six months before the bankruptcy, the company bought back shares from Bush at a discounted price, in return Bush spent 5 trillion from the budget to compensate for the expenses of friends with Iraqi oil.

                Foolishness, in which jewelers threw gold trimmings into the river so as not to splurge on re-melting, and each family had 4 Kalashnikovs? And what is the capture of Kuwait, where slavery flourishes, worse than the capture of Iraq by the Americans?
                After all, the Americans are occupying Japan, Grenada, Panama, Serbia, supporting poverty in them (except Japan, it will be slightly overtaken next to Russia / the USSR and will agree to the occupation by its northern neighbor - at least oil will become 5 times cheaper).
                Kuwait under Saddam would have remained a rich province, slavery would have disappeared, forcing the emirs there to work. Iraq under the Americans became a beggar. In general, wherever the Americans go, the local population becomes poor. Even in the USA itself.

    REPLY.

    I’m not Arkharov, but I’ll try.
    The connection between the UN and the elimination of a specific person is not entirely clear. Suleymani was 10 years under UN sanctions (he was forbidden to leave Iran). Yes, there was an Interpol warrant for his arrest. The decision to liquidate the HEAD OF A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION (the IRGC was recognized as such by a US court) is the responsibility of the president.
    Suleimani was never an official and led a non-state structure.
    PS Netanyahu is not a criminal and, as such, has not been recognized by any international body, just like Trump.
