International coalition forces leave Iraq




What happened a few years ago seemed impossible. An international military contingent led by the United States leaves Iraq. So, the contingent has already left the Kayyar Air Force Base south of Mosul - one of the main points of the Air Force base. The official ceremony of the transfer of the base to the Iraqi military was attended by the Chief of the National Operations Center of the Iraqi Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Muhammad Fazil Abbas.

It is assumed that this will be followed by the transfer of the K-1 military base in the north-west of the city of Kirkuk. Last week, foreign troops transferred the Al Qaim base in the western part of the country to the Iraqi army.

The troops are withdrawing not only because of the complete cleansing of Iraq from ISIS armed groups (* banned in the Russian Federation), but also in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, the United States decided to significantly reduce its contingent in Iraq and transfer several small bases to the local military.

The COVID-19 pandemic was also the reason for the withdrawal of the British military from Iraq. French soldiers also begin to leave this Middle Eastern country.

The Iraqi command also reports of a reduction in the foreign military contingent:

Following consultations with the Government of Iraq, the international coalition decided to adjust its presence in Iraq and temporarily suspend the training of Iraqi security forces in the light of the health crisis.

        Yes, and this "news" is outdated. That's when the news will be removed from Syria.

        Exactly . They didn’t withdraw but reduced it because they know that they can return it at any time.

            For example, Afghan or Vietnamese.
            The US usually captures countries where there is oil or drugs.

              You are not quite accurate, the United States capture any country where there is something to grab. And whether it will be oil, drugs, diamonds, gold, or simply a transit route, this is secondary, primary that the United States is interested in a specific period of time in a particular place.
              If today in some kind of abstract Andorra or Luxembourg they find the necessary US resources (let them be the same diamonds), then by evening it will become clear that in the countries of interest to the USA, things are very bad with democracy, well, or tolerance towards gays, cats, volatile mice, there is already an unlimited flight of fantasy. And accordingly, the presence of the most “democratic” army on the planet is urgently required. Well, then everything follows the pattern. And woe to that country if it does not have a reliable air defense system, well, or a friend in the person of Russia, or at least China.

              hi
              The United States and NATO will withdraw their warriors from Afghanistan. The only question is what this conclusion will cost them and whether the game was worth the candle when they decided to occupy Afghanistan:

        They are cutting back in Iraq, but are leaving completely from some bases.
        The military base has a range of operational control of the territory.
        If a lot of them are stuck,
        then there is control of the territory.
        And if they continue to reduce it further,
        then there will be no overlap, we get a little control and a little hostage.

      They won’t leave Iraq anywhere. It was not for this that they brought their troops into Iraq, which would then be withdrawn. Until oil runs out in Iraq, they will not go anywhere.

    The troops are withdrawing not only because of the complete cleansing of Iraq from ISIS armed groups (* banned in the Russian Federation), but also in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.

    Yeah, coronavirus means? But this is not interconnected?
    The Iraqi parliament voted to withdraw foreign troops from the country and terminate the agreement with the coalition to combat the ISIS terrorist group (banned in Russia).
