Iraqi authorities prefer Russian C-400 to the American Patriot complex

39
The Russian ZRS 400 "Triumph" Iraq needs to protect mosques and holy sites from the air attacks of terrorists betrays TASS statement by the head of the defense committee of the Iraqi parliament, Hakim al-Zamili.




Terrorism targets our country, where there are many holy places for every Iraqi. There are signs and warnings that extremists can use aircraft to attack these shrines, which leads to great unrest and anxiety in the country, as happened after the attack on the shrines in Samarra,
said az-Zamili in an interview with Al Ghad Press.

He also noted that "the United States does not seek to arm the Iraqi army and provide modern anti-aircraft systems to fully protect the airspace."

Iraq has to possess such complexes. And this is our right to receive them,
added the deputy.

Earlier it was reported that the Iraqi delegation was going to Moscow to discuss the purchase of C-400 systems. As one of the reasons for acquiring this weapons it was said that Iraq wants to keep up with neighboring countries with new air defense systems, as well as to ensure the maximum possible protection of its territory.

Meanwhile, Baghdad’s intentions raised concerns in Washington. State Department spokesman Heather Nauert even warned the Iraqi authorities about "possible consequences in connection with the adopted law on countering America’s opponents through sanctions." Nevertheless, Iraqis are continuing negotiations with the Russian side and are refusing to purchase American Patriot complexes.

    Iraq needs Russian S-400 Triumph air defense systems to protect mosques and holy places from terrorist air attacks

    S-400 is definitely not from terrorists, it would be enough for them

        Iraq does not seem to be at war with any states, they would at least restore order within their territory

          Present Iraq is very closely connected with Iran. And that enemy has the entire Arabian Peninsula. And many of these enemies, by the way, are financing terrorists.

      Iraq (so far) is completely under the control of the United States, although the Iranian stance is growing. So, such statements are most likely an element of bargaining with an overseas gentleman

      Nevertheless, Iraqis continue negotiations with the Russian side and refuse to acquire American Patriot complexes.
      If they are negotiating, this does not mean that they abandoned the Patriot.
      Iraq is more dependent on the states than Turkey.
      Americans simply will not leave it. They have enough dollars to buy the “right” decision of the Iraqi leadership. Not the first time.

        The mattresses themselves are to blame ... They brought to power Shiites. They themselves pushed Iraq to a rapprochement with Iran ... Having created ISIS, they hoped to keep in check ... But request , it didn’t work out ... But Iran has a unique opportunity to get our technologies through Iraq.

        Then how did it happen that they didn’t buy Abrams, but our T-90S?

    [quote] [/ quote] Meanwhile, Baghdad’s intentions have raised concern in Washington. State Department spokesman Heather Nauert even warned the Iraqi authorities about “the possible consequences of the law on countering America’s adversaries through sanctions.” The consequences will be great if you have an American-style air defense system. Yes, and the sanctions of Iraq in one place after two storms in the desert ..

    “Iraq is striving to have S-400 missile systems at its disposal to protect its territory and sky from airborne threats. This was stated on Saturday by Al Ghad Press to the head of the Iraqi Parliament’s Defense and Security Committee, Hakim al-Zamili ... “Iraq has the right to possess advanced weapons to protect its land and sky from outside air threats,” he said.
    It is unlikely that this will happen ... through Iraq lies the air route to Iran. The closure of this path (even simply by modern radars) will dramatically complicate the strike on Iran, both the Kyrgyz Republic and aviation.

    Well, now hysteria will begin again at the coconuts, it was not possible to suck in its trash. And again they frighten with sanctions, for so much time they could have come up with something new.

    Iraq is forced to possess such complexes. And it is our right to receive them

    This is what kind of right they erupted? Mattresses allowed or what? In general, it’s strange to deliver it to those from where all this potentially floats away to the “partners” for study.

      So the United States in those parts has long been not the only player. During the battles with ISIS, official Iraq drifted smoothly towards Iran and the Russian Federation, which were able to provide it with troops (IRGC) and weapons on time.

      the same one on which they bought Russian T-90 tanks. And, for sure, they will buy another BMP-3. They especially did not look at mattresses. The most interesting thing is that Baghdad lined up for the S-400 another year in 2014, but then the war came and the budget focused on the purchase of the more necessary: ​​armored vehicles, cars and ammunition

    We decided to work in the future. SAM from the democratizers in the air democratizers may not work, with a very high probability. The likelihood of clashes with the democratizers is high, since the United States has clearly begun to lose control of its puppets. At the same time, Russia poses no threat to Iraq, which means using the S-400 on our military sides is almost a fantastic option.

    The good news is, let the mattresses now discourage the Iraqi authorities from buying the S-400. Iraq has a lever of pressure on the United States: either in a pose or we’ll buy the S-400.

    To keep up with the times and not in the past to live with the patriots, that would be more correct ...

    The other day there was a message that T-90 tanks were sent to Iraq. I won’t be surprised if C-400 will be delivered to Iraq.

    S-400 to Iraq? Again in credit, and of course, surely forgiven! We are rich, we will provide everyone! In the next branch, we correctly describe the forgiveness of all debts! Only no one forgives us anything.

    for amers, these explanations will come down. Americans don’t think about the dibelism of their answers and intentions. Such nonsense has been read in justification of American actions, maybe it’s waving the chipovy west, but the rest of the world is gone. Now Amer’s planes will flow from above when the diapers run out
