US Department of Defense prepares plan to destroy pro-Iranian factions in Iraq

The United States intends to resume hostilities in Iraq with the goal of destroying the units of Iraqi militias supported by Iran. This was reported by The New York Times (NYT), citing informed sources in the US Department of Defense.


According to the publication, the Pentagon issued a directive last week on the preparation of a campaign to destroy the Iraqi militia, which threatens with new attacks against US troops. However, the commander of the US Armed Forces in Iraq opposed the company, who warned that such a campaign could be counterproductive and could lead to a war with Iran.

According to the American general, stated with the memorandum, the new military company will require the sending of an additional US military contingent to Iraq, as well as distracting the military from fulfilling the main mission in Iraq - preparing the Iraqi army to confront the Islamic State (banned in Russia).

Recall that at present, the American coalition is redeploying its forces in Iraq, freeing and transferring military bases to the Iraqi army. According to reports, part of the US military contingent is being withdrawn to neighboring countries, including the territory of Syria.

Pentagon plans were commented on by Federation Council member Alexei Pushkov, who said that the escalation of hostilities in Iraq indicates Washington’s "bad habit" that would not lead the United States to victory.

The US cannot get rid of bad habits: even in the midst of an epidemic, they plan to escalate hostilities in Iraq, hoping to destroy the “pro-Iranian groups” there. For the United States this will not end in victory. It already looks like a previously lost battle in a foreign territory

    Now it’s as simple as that. It is enough to throw things infected with CorVi19 and you can forget about these groups for a long time ...

        Somehow in the fight against the Indians, Vietnamese and the same Iraqis, this "elves" did not stop.

      It is enough to throw things infected with KorVi19 and about these groups

      And if you throw things closer to the mattress bases, then these will quickly lather from there :)))

      They will try the way until Ukrainian planes fly there because of the coronovirus. Or again they want to get a couple, three dozen Iranian missiles at their bases?

      Suffice it to recall the American Indians and plagued blankets. And also the corpses of the dead from the plague, which in Europe were thrown by catapults into besieged cities.

      The technology is blatantly Saxons run-in, nothing new ...

      Apparently, a rehearsal at Theodore Roosevelt?
      Whom are they, wretched, going to destroy? Hashd al-Shaabi? They have already "destroyed" the Taliban. These are not corrupt Saddam generals.

      So there is no contradiction. Mattresses actually withdraw their units from some bases with their subsequent transfer to the Ministry of Defense of Iraq. In addition to the bases, some weapons are also being transferred. It is what it is. Only this conclusion does not apply to all bases. The question is, where do they take them? Part of it is being shoved to the remaining bases, and part is being sent to Jordan. It is clear that mattresses will not be carried out on land operations against the Shaabists and will mainly be limited to air strikes by forces and structure, thereby thereby forcing them to abandon counteraction to the American presence, however, as practice shows, any action causes opposition and as a result of strikes, mattresses can get the opposite effect with large losses.

    But what, all planned military operations are first discussed in the media? It’s not a war, but a PR company. tongue

      First, Trump will write on Twitter, then they will discuss it in the media, then hearings in Congress with the creation of a dozen commissions ...
      Spielberg during this time will shoot a film about the upcoming operation, and Trump will be presented with a couple more impeachments.

      Here it is, a modern war ... laughing

      The way it is. All this fuss is about voters. Everyone sees how the authorities lay down in the fight against the pandemic, and not everyone can see how pro-Iranian groups will be destroyed. Can you imagine what a scope for peppy reports and beautiful videos?
