US leaves another military base in Iraq

The US military will leave another military base, transferring troops to another area. According to Al Hadath TV channel, the US military will be transferred from the Al-Taji military base north of Baghdad to Erbil.


According to available information, the reason for the redeployment of the US military is the more frequent shelling of the base by the Shiite armed formations "Al-Hashd al-Shaabi" in recent years. The Americans will leave the Al-Taji military base in full on Sunday, August 23, and will be transferred to a military base in the Erbil region, the administrative center of the Kurdish Autonomous Region in northern Iraq.

The Iraqi government has confirmed the redeployment of the US military. According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein, the transfer of forces of the international coalition led by the United States from Al-Tajji will take place in accordance with the reached bilateral agreement.

Recall that shelling of military bases in Iraq, where the US military is stationed, has become more frequent since the beginning of this year, after the United States killed the commander of the Al-Quds special forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), General Qasem Soleimani.

          Is that all? But what about the brave speeches of their generals about imminent retaliation for the threat to the lives of clear-cut American guys? That is, you can just drive them off the base like that? It turns out interesting.

      In some places, I even feel sorry for the Americans (well, or the magazines who write plaintively about them), just imagine - you have been equipping the base for years, you have invested a lot of money and are leaving the habitable place.
      It's a shame!
      And you have to keep the poker face!
      Like - I didn't really want to ...

        You haven't seen the speed with which the engineering troops are now building or dismantling bases. Several days for both. All are brought and assembled like a children's designer. Both generators and living quarters. Bulldozers, dump trucks, powerful cranes.
        Nobody works with shovels.

          Have you seen ... Only one thing I don’t understand - is it an offensive, or a drape? Well, retreat to previously prepared positions (so as not to be so offensive) wink

              Well, they went there for a reason. And Saddam is not the main reason. They simply occupied the regions that used to "belong" to the USSR and remained "ownerless". Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, failed with Syria, Cuba is a question.
              In principle, we did everything right. There, China is growing up with teeth.

        Taking into account the pro-Iranian vector of policy of many leaders in Iraq, I think that the Americans have only now begun to understand that Saddam was a counterweight to the Ayatollahs, but they did not seem to expect what kind of solitaire would now develop. I think they will remember Saddam with a kind word when they get two hostile states in that region.

      It changes and very much in the subjunctive greatness, it changes. One thing is a gunned-down combat battalion sour in the Iraqi desert. Another thing is on the Polish-Soviet / Russian border / a well-knit brigade unit is withdrawn, the hardened ones with a combat one, as if they did not want and did not try, but all the same. concentration, and most importantly deploying / tobish on the basis of a departed division, you can deploy a combat corps, a scolesmarch-march and this thread where ...? Or simply redeployment From such a deployment and "just transfer" is breathtaking / information baalions of the US Army will also take care of this. analyze all the threads / transport network / and knots // well, you understand /, then a sad configuration of the formation of troops develops. In connection with the opened wasp, I hasten to inform you that the next NATO company will be surprisingly short-lived and fast-swift. The main goal is Moscow

        I guess this will be their last company and the majority of civilized humanity will cease to exist.
        I have no doubts that in the event of a large-scale attack on the Russian Federation, our nuclear deterrent forces will strike at the planned targets. And no oligarchy will even have time to fart against.

      I saw the American film "Outpost" about the Afghan base in Afghanistan the day before. The film is new, this year.
      The base is locked in a narrow gorge in the mountains and surrounded by high ridges on all sides, from where everything on the territory of the base is in full view.
      The outpost of the American military is adjacent to an Afghan village, almost all of whose young population is Taliban.
      Throughout the film, Afghans are killing Americans. Every single day. From nearby heights.
      Base commanders change, mutually exclusive orders appear.
      The leadership is trying to negotiate with the elders, bribe, and reason with the locals. All in vain. The Yankees are suffering losses. Eastern cunning prevails over Western commercialism.
      The movie ends with a final epic battle, when a strengthened Taliban forces several battalions to take over the base.
      Heroic ji-ai, at the cost of their own blood, defend the stronghold of Uncle Sam, simultaneously destroying almost the entire male population of the Afghan province ...
      The help of the "green berets" arrived in time, transmitting the order to abandon and destroy the base.
      What the Yankees do with the awareness of the accomplished duty ...
      I read the article and scratched the back of my head - where is the famous "American Resilience"?
      Well, they fired at them several times ...
      Where's the retribution? And where is the feverish pathos and shouts: "We'll finish off the ... lads!"?
      Curled up and went to "relocate".
      Apparently cinema and real life are two big differences ... yes

        I think there was an order for such a scenario so that American citizens understand that their losses are not worth a cent there. The ending of the film is logical, but the thought is apparently hammered into the subconscious that it's time to reel in the fishing rods. I have not seen the film, so I estimate it from your words.

      So it is only in Russia that everything is freely spread out, since there is a lot of living space, and in old civilizations everything is cramped and narrow - that's why from the very beginning of the 1600s we have been observing attempts to put Russia on all fours - so for some reason it was not set :: every time a powerful state was revived.
      Yes, and in today's position, liberoids have put us only on a temporary suck :: if the GDP does not take the right measures, it will still flow, even if from a different angle :: OTR state channel conducted a poll in the "Reflection" program like "Do you want to socialism?" - the answer is stunning: 96% voted FOR socialism - and where did the 7% of the potential liberda go? request

      They are running very "coarsely" - after all, there they will be under the territorial protection of the Kurds, bought by them with giblets and together with the unborn generations :: it will be very difficult for Shiite partisans to get to them in order to plant a couple of mortar volleys: after all, the invaders are more likely will sit behind the duvals from containers with rubble, rather than get out under fire.

    and from Erbil they will quietly be taken to the states ...
    here something else is noteworthy: the Americans are forced to withdraw the bases from the territories where the overwhelming majority of the local population openly hates them to the regions where the population supports their presence ...
    that is, they were piled from et-taji, where local Shiites terrorized them (and the number of attacks grew) to Erbil under the "protection" of the Kurds ...
    a bad sign for the "gigimon" about 15 years ago, no one could even think of attacking the military bases of the all-powerful USA, and now their shelling is a routine;)

      Nobody needs them in the States either, because for the most part they consist of blacks with Puerto Ricans and other rabble collected from garbage dumps and taken out of the States precisely because they do not breed crime in the States themselves ...
