The Pentagon accused Tehran of trying to influence the elections in Iraq

30
Pentagon chief James Mattis accused the Iranian authorities of trying to influence the outcome of the parliamentary elections, which are due to take place in May, reports TASS the message "Reuters".


Mattis talks to the marines.

We have alarming evidence that Iran is trying to influence, by using money, the (results) elections in Iraq. These funds are used to influence candidates and votes,
said the defense minister told reporters.

We assume that this amount is not negligible. We also believe that it is extremely useless,
added Mattis.

A spokesman for the US military said at a briefing yesterday that Mattis will be going on a trip to the Middle East next week. Including he will visit Oman, Afghanistan and Bahrain.

The agency recalls that parliamentary elections in Iraq are scheduled for 12 May. According to the Higher Independent Electoral Commission, about 7 have already been nominated by thousands of people. Candidates from the 18 provinces of the country, including the Kurdish autonomy, will be elected to the Council of Representatives.

24 million people (out of 36-million population) have the right to vote in Iraq. The election campaign officially starts on April 10.

      And what, Iraq complained to the State Department that he stood up for him for Iranian interference in their elections? Still, the weather forecast is more interesting to read. winked

        There is more intrigue in the weather forecast. And here everything is one pattern. Tested in Russian, worked or not, but the scheme is ready. Only history will put everything in its place.

          You very rightly noticed ... Nothing new, as with the "poisoning" of the traitor in London.!
          Western propagandists and schemers are becoming smaller. Trump, correctly noted recently, that Russia is laughing at you and continues to bend its line, calmly and systematically ..

      Maybe it’s boring, Russia hasn’t yet found an effective answer to their tales!
      And since Russia is silent, you can say anything.
      We have alarming evidence that Iran is trying to influence, by using money, the (results) elections in Iraq. These funds are used to influence candidates and votes,

      Who's stopping the Cold War in the same style?
      Or, at least, to answer in the style of Kim Jong-un. After all, it works! Tarmp collapsed ...

    “Assuming” and “highly certain” now the main arguments are similar. Or rather, a new brain disease.

    We wait until the United States is accused of interfering in the affairs of other countries.
    Otherwise, if you repeat the same countless times .. At some point, someone will begin to believe in it.

    Finally! There was another country that intervenes,
    otherwise we’d already become bored.
    We are asking dear Iranian comrades for a seminar on the exchange of experience and on interference in the elections. laughing
    Well, Americans with their rich experience, we will not invite.

    Although for the proof, the first words are enough: "The Pentagon blamed ...", and then anyone and for anything.

    And these statements are from the USA - the most zealous “defender” of the sovereignty of other countries. Well, it’s like listening to thoughts of philanthropy from a man-eater - he loves people, but in his own way ...
