US begins preparations for sanctions against Iraq

The United States began preparations for imposing sanctions against Iraq due to demands for the withdrawal of international coalition forces led by the United States from the country. It is reported by the Washington Post, citing three sources.


The White House has begun to develop sanctions against Iraq, which will be introduced if Baghdad continues to demand the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. According to the sources of the publication, in the case of restrictions, the bulk of the sanctions will go through the US Treasury and the White House. At the moment, the final decision on the introduction of restrictions has not yet been made.

Earlier, the Iraqi parliament voted to withdraw US troops from the country. In response, US President Donald Trump said that the United States would not leave Iraq because it had “invested billions of dollars in Iraq” and threatened to impose sanctions.

Against the background of these statements, a letter appeared in the network from the commander of the US forces in Iraq, Brigadier General William Sealy, in which he said about the beginning of the "withdrawal" of US troops from Iraq at the request of local authorities. However, the Pentagon denied the veracity of the letter, saying that "it was an unsigned draft." According to US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, the US is not going to leave Iraq.

First of all, we are changing the positions of our forces in the region. Besides this, as for the letter, I read it once. I can’t tell you about the authenticity of this letter, but I can say what I read. This letter does not correspond to our current situation.

- CNN quotes the words of the head of the Pentagon.

On our own, we add that against the backdrop of "aggravation of the situation in the Middle East," the Latvian military has stopped training and training with the Iraqi security forces.

      Well, they can spoil Iraq!
      And shit a lot and high quality.
      There is even China bending ...
      Well, the withdrawal of troops from Iraq - it depends more on how the political situation in the United States itself develops. More precisely an elected company.
      Well, the corpses of American high-ranking officers in merchandise classes should go home.

        It is possible to spoil, but whether the effect-country will be practically destroyed. But the American and other companies that are now pumping Iraqi oil, can rake in full.
        To help Iraq in overcoming a humanitarian catastrophe (in exchange for tighter oil and not only) there are RI, PRC, RF.

    The entire free world that is not in the orbit of US influence is under their sanctions.
    Any criticism of US policy, both internal and external, is under the persecution of Washington ... defined by the United States now it is an empire of Evil, hegemony and despotism.
    With their sanctions and permissiveness, Americans eventually produce a bunch of enemies and competitors for themselves .... definitely what when the state is deprived of brakes, it will inevitably slide into the abyss ... which we now observe in relation to the United States.

      Well, Rome has endured 200+ years. And the newcomers from another globe fell apart (well, plus internal decline).

      Posts of the type, just a little and the United States all, have been going on for 20 years (and before this article of the type America will fall apart tomorrow, America has turned the whole world against itself since the 60s).

        We will tolerate another two hundred years ... if you put the tracing of patterns from Ancient Rome in a period of decline, then the United States fits perfectly into it.
        Ancient Rome killed and plundered peoples around its empire, and the USA repeats this path exactly, producing numerous enemies ... of course, no one expects the USA to fall instantly ... but who knows, at some point, a small injection into the Achilles' heel of the USA will lead it to collapse just like the Soviet Union perestroika Gorbachev.

        Economic reasons in the first place it collapsed. The zones where expansion could have been effectively completed have ended.
        Well, history is now flowing much faster than then. But I agree, the United States is now close to the peak of its power, and may well preserve it in the long run.

        You did not take into account one important factor: -the world has accelerated and all events in the modern world are faster than in the ancient one. So 200 + of ancient Rome in our time is 20 +; -.

    The worst of their weapons involved! Soon there will not be a single country left on the planet that has not been "authorized" ... That is why de-dollarization and new trade unions excluding the USA are a necessity. For everyone who does not want to receive sanctions for any reason ...

        Very doubtful. In banks in America, the percentage of deposits is scanty, as in general in banks of the same Europe. Capital lying motionless, dries and crowds. Much more likely to invest in real estate, shares of enterprises ... With real estate abroad has become ... Difficult. For Russian officials.

            With rare exceptions, the maximum rate on deposits with US banks does not exceed 0,9-0,95% (in MetLife Bank you can open a deposit at 1,15% or 1% per annum for a period of 24 and 12 months, respectively).
