Australia ceases to participate in air operations in Iraq and Syria

38
The Australian government has decided to curtail the participation of its air force in the counter-terrorist operation in Iraq and Syria, reports RIA News statement of the Minister of Defense Marise Payne.




Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that almost 100% of the territories in Syria and Iraq, previously captured by the IG (the group is banned in the Russian Federation), have been released.

After discussing this issue with Iraq and other members of the international coalition, the government decided to return six Super Hornet attack aircraft to the home from the Middle East, which means the end of Australia’s participation in air operations in Iraq and Syria,
said Payne.

She also reported a significant reduction in the number of air strikes over the three years of the air operation.

On December 9, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi also announced a victorious conclusion of the war in Iraq against the IG. Major battles against terrorists in 2017 took place in the city of Mosul, as well as in al-Havij and areas in western Iraq.

                Here you have a reinforced concrete reason for returning home, otherwise the Australians were already suspected of cowardice:

                Yes, not the defeat of ISIS influenced Australia’s decision, but yesterday’s car collision (terrorist attack). As it should be rabble from the Western coalition - they just felt a threat to themselves, immediately into the bushes and vegetable gardens, vegetable gardens.

      I have a suspicion that their warriors at the base bases under the kondeya beer were slurping, and not fighting ISIS.

      Of course, without Australia, Estonia and Palau it is impossible to defeat ISIS.

    Well, who pulled them into this adventure? They would sit on the island, go about their business. No, the descendants of the British convicts discovered greatness and international significance. To rob, kill and take away legs in time - genes, what can you do ... But they didn’t think about the little answer. And she will ever be.

        According to history, the development of Australia began with the sending of convicts there for heavy work. Type - nowhere to run. They were the main labor force. And those who still fled remained there in remote villages.

    Yes, they need to protect their endemic Australian nature, and not fly somewhere for thousands of kilometers, there is no sense anyway from their participation or non-participation.
    It used to be clear when they were a colony, then dominion in everything following the metropolis, and now ... New Zealand will soon flaunt a new flag))) It would be time for the Australians to think about platypuses and other marsupials.
