The Pentagon does not believe that Iraq will buy C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia. This was announced on Tuesday by a representative of the command of the operation Inherent Resolve (Unshakable Resolve), which is conducted in Iraq and Syria by a group of countries led by the United States, Air Force Brigadier Andrew Croft.


The US Department of Defense does not believe in the purchase of C-400 by Iraq


The general was asked to comment on information that Iraq is going to buy C-400 from the Russian Federation.

I saw this [purchase messages] only in open sources, the media. I do not see any evidence that this will happen. This is a very expensive and complicated system.
- said Croft, adding that no one consulted him on this issue

Earlier, the head of the defense and security committee of the Iraqi parliament, Hakim az-Zamili, noted that Iraq seeks to have Russian anti-aircraft missile systems at its disposal in order to protect its territory and sky from air threats. Also, the Shafaq News portal reported that the Iraqi delegation will soon visit Moscow for talks on the acquisition of C-400.

            Sell ​​S-400 to the Turks - utter stupidity, as well as diplomatic and economic
            tricks with the "sick man".

              To sell the S-400 to the Turks is utter nonsense, as are diplomatic and economic tricks with a "sick man."

              Time will show what was stupid and what not.

                  After the sale of S-400 Turkey, this complex can be sold to any country. Stronger it is no longer declassify.
                  Another thing is that Iraq should not be sold in installments. The regime will change, and we will lose money. Only prepaid. And specifically, you can sell Iraq, Turkey may well then attack Iraqi Kurds.

        After all the storms in the desert, the Iraqis no longer dance with happiness that mattresses were brought to them. And they drove on the Abramsah, in quiet sadness, tarry with our equipment and weapons, so far nothing has happened. In Soviet times, Syria and Iraq were the most advanced in the B. East. A good part of their elites studied in the USSR, and there were also many married to Russian wives! And now their children are at the age when they need to steer. ?

      Yes, in general, they don’t believe it correctly. Buy a little. Who will work on it? Moreover, when almost the whole country is in a state of general civil war? Who will have this complex?

    dear, well, so no one has canceled the oil in Iraq ... complicated? that is, does the American general believe that these "natives" are not able to master sophisticated equipment? or he believes that their patriots are very easy to operate ...

    Iraq will also leave the American occupation, regardless of whether the State Department believes in it or not.

    Seeks to have and bought - things are different ... In the conditions of occupation, they will be allowed to do this only if the occupiers are interested in this purchase ... Although .. the devil knows ... There have been so many events lately that the US is losing control even in those countries where their positions seemed unshakable ...

    Do you believe in - do not believe, decided to play?
    So after all, in terms of “you don’t believe” you are fortified everywhere, where the pin-dos have gone all the way to them you don’t believe them, your patriots don’t want to. After all, if something happens, Avax will fly and they will all turn off ...
    And who needs such missiles?
    With external control wassat

    And for this, the serial production of the S-500 complexes has been launched, so let them now play in "I believe, I don't believe"! laughing drinks
