Newsweek: Iraq seeks to direct the power of the Russian Federation against the US

29
As the InoTV, Newsweek analyzes the possibility of a rapprochement between Baghdad and Moscow.

As the newspaper explains, Iraq’s Vice-President Nouri al-Maliki, during a visit to Moscow, declared his country's desire to get close to Russia. As he stressed, Baghdad is “predisposed to new political developments in the light of regional interventions” and wants to prevent “foreign political education” from imposing its agenda on it.

It is known that Russia has historically strong relations with Iraq, so we would like Russia to have a significant presence in our country politically and militarily. In this way a balance would be created that would serve the good of the region, its people and its countries. Iraq seeks to strengthen strategic cooperation in such areas as electric power, oil, scientific cooperation, scholarships, university training, economics and trade, as well as political and military spheres.


The publication believes that al-Maliki, apparently plans to direct the economic, political and military might of Moscow against Washington.

Newsweek: Iraq seeks to direct the power of the Russian Federation against the US


After negotiations with Foreign Minister Lavrov and Speaker of the Council of Federations Matvienko al-Maliki discussed the acquisition of Vladimir Putin tanks T-90 with a total value of over $ 1 billion. During a meeting with the President of the Russian Federation, an Iraqi politician expressed his gratitude for the fight against ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) and other jihadist groups in the Middle East.

Russia has made a huge contribution, in particular in Syria and Iraq, to ​​prevent the disintegration of the region. We sincerely thank you. If it were not for your role, the map of the region would now change in a negative way for us.

      That's it, that no.
      "al-Maliki is apparently planning to channel Moscow’s economic, political and military power against Washington."

      And Iraq, what is fighting with the United States? what

        I agree, as an ally, this is zero without a wand. But the fact that they are trying to get out from under the states is in our hands. This must be encouraged and this must be used.

          I would not discount the Iraqi people. I’m sure that they would have dug Saddam now and kissed him three times every morning ... to kiss him in order to return the times of his reign. They drank freedom from dictatorship in a full circle. They will die a few thousand more (maybe tens of thousands), and the rest will retain the smell of American friendship and democracy for a long time in their heads. In the next election, everything will come out through your fingers. So, in the near future, we may have another loyal state in BV. And they do not want to buy tanks for sugar (such a desert) sand. And then the tankers will come to study later. I think: it is necessary to cooperate.

      Iraq sees the obvious advantages of VSK in Syria relative to the American coalition in Iraq. In addition, an independent Iraq is useless to the Americans. They always have a rope for gallows.

      how the USSR under Gorbachev and Yeltsin surrendered all its allies to the Arabs and they not only remember well. On this basis, no one seriously counts on Russia as an ally, since the next surrender by Russia of its allies is quite high and everyone understands this

    It’s just that Iraq remembers that the friendship of “American friends” stands ... A million dead, the destruction of the country, hundreds of thousands of refugees, the creation of ISIS - that’s what “American friendship” is!

    "Counts," "apparently" ... That's where the phobias of Amers. Everywhere they see anti-democratizers. Apparently there is little money for the defense industry?

    The vice president speaks well, it seems correct, using the oriental art of "getting into one place without soap" (do not skimp on praise). Of course we are for political presence and economic cooperation, who is against it. But the military is completely useless to us. Do not forget. that there is a rich American presence, let Iraqi politicians use it. Themselves surrendered themselves disintegrate.

    The moment of truth! Now it depends only on Moscow whether it is ready to take a new ally under its wing or not. All the same, there is no longer the former Soviet power.

        Only the strong adjoin all the others. Previously, it was the USSR and the USA. Now the USSR is gone, and Russia has lost all influence. Iraq's conversion is worth a lot. This is essentially the recognition of Russia as the center of power. They considered Russia to be the force that could save, and from the United States as well. Considered a reliable companion. You cannot be a superpower without allies! ... But perhaps Russia itself, the Kremlin, does not think so. Treat it the same way you do!
