Denmark withdraws its military contingent from the Iraqi base of Ain Assad: comments of ordinary Danes

The Danish Ministry of Defense has announced that it is withdrawing the Danish military from Ain Assad’s Iraqi base in Anbar province. The base began to be often mentioned in connection with the Iranian operation “Martyr Suleymani,” which was carried out in response to the elimination by the Americans of the General IRGC. Iran conducted its operation, which was related to the launch of a missile attack on the mentioned military base, on January 8 of this year.


Recall that then the infrastructure of the Ain Assad base was significantly affected. Initially, the US military command stated that none of the troops were injured, and then it suddenly became clear that dozens of soldiers were diagnosed with shell shock and damage.

The command of the Danish military contingent reports that the Danish state flag was lowered at the Ain Assad base in Iraq, which in turn "marked the end of the Danish military presence at this base, which began in 2014."

At the same time, the Danish Ministry of Defense noted that they were preparing to take command of the joint NATO military contingent in Iraq. However, the Danish military will no longer conduct combat anti-terrorist operations, but will focus, as stated, on the briefing of Iraqi military personnel. The military remaining in Iraq will be at NATO headquarters in Baghdad.

It is added that consideration of the further military presence of Danish troops in Iraq is being considered by the country's parliament. It is noted that parliamentarians must confirm their readiness to take over the Danish military command of the NATO contingent in Iraqi territory.
The comments of ordinary Danes in the Jyllands-Posten edition are noteworthy:

Kai Hansen:

It would be interesting if the Minister of Defense told us why young Danish men (provided that you do not send female soldiers to Iraq) should risk their lives in Iraq?



Gitte Christiansen:

I do not understand why Denmark and the Danes intervene in the wars in the Middle East. We have a lot of healthy young people from Iraq in Denmark, why don't they go home to fight for their country?



Geert Sauer:

Let the EU supply advisers who know the language there. Let it be the Iraqis themselves, who were taught democracy and business here

Why did the Danish contingent decide to withdraw from Ain Assad base only now - almost six months after the Iranian missile attack? According to some reports, Danish troops took part in restoring the infrastructure of this NATO military facility.

    It's good that you don't "understand."
    And be glad that the "young people from Iraq" living in Denmark have not made it a rule to fight for their country, blowing up and killing the population in the country of residence, ie. Danes.
    They sit and sit. On the neck.
    And the young Danes are sitting at the base in Iraq and sitting.

    But I was always interested - what can such warriors teach? Wear horned helmets and wave grandfather ax? When did you learn so that they are now trying to teach others?

      Vasyan - horned helmets and two-handed axes appeared only in Hollywood, and so - they were ordinary pirates.

        What's the difference? Well, hornless helmets are taught to wear, but about two-handed I did not mention the ax.wassat Then ordinary piracy will be taught? So the Somali boys themselves whom they want to teach, if you ask them ...
        Where have clever Danes gained enough intelligence to teach others to fight? Unless - barmaley.

    All six months, the Dacians shook in fear, and only now they began to turn on their brains, that not only THEY can kill, but with the same success)) bully will overwhelm and THEM.
