The United States threatened Iraq to close the American embassy in the country

The Donald Trump administration has threatened the Iraqi authorities with the closure of the US Embassy in the country if Iraq does not ensure an end to the rocket attacks that threaten the American side. The Wall Street Journal reported.


The publication, citing sources in the White House, claims that earlier the head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, during a telephone conversation with Iraqi President Barham Saleh and Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazimi, warned the latter that he was preparing to close the embassy in response to rocket attacks on American troops on the territory of Iraq.

Iraqi officials corroborate this information by claiming "preliminary steps" by the US to close the embassy within two to three months. At the same time, it is not ruled out that the United States may agree to a complete withdrawal of troops from Iraqi territory.

At the same time, TASS reports that the State Department refused to comment on Pompeo's statement about the closure of the embassy in Iraq.

However, the United States will not tolerate threats against our men and women serving overseas. We will not hesitate to take whatever action we deem necessary to ensure the safety of our employees. (...) it is unacceptable to launch missiles at our embassy, ​​to attack American and other diplomats, or to threaten law and order in Iraq. We look forward to continuing to work with our Iraqi partners to ensure the safety of our personnel and facilities.

- declared in the State Department.

        You will threaten Australia again, they have about the same influence on those who fire as the Iraqi authorities. They have occupied the country and are still outraged. I imagine Hitler would have complained to Stalin about the partisans, let them stop killing German soldiers, Comrade Stalin, these partisans, influence them. The US is in full swing in this administration.

      All this is nothing more than words that have nothing with reality, but the reality is that Iraq separates Iran from Syria and Israel, so the Americans will not be allowed to leave Iraq by the same Jews.

      In addition, Iraq is rich in energy resources, and if so, the Americans from Iraq can only be carried forward with their feet, but they themselves will not go out of there for anything.

      Well, it is also important that the territory of Iraq could be used by China to enter the Mediterranean Sea, through Syria, and further to Europe, as one of the many trade routes of the Celestial Empire, but will the Americans miss the chance to screw up their "partner"? I think no.

      So everything will be fine and the Yankees themselves will not go home. They have such a mentality, unless someone gives them an acceleration.

        Iraq has not separated Iran from anyone for a long time - exactly since the time when the now deceased Suleimani with the IRGC and the pro-Iranian militia saved the official leadership of Iraq from the armed units of one organization banned in Russia.

      I think that the reaction of the people of Iraq can be described as "thunderous applause turning into a standing ovation." What a joy.

      But this already looks like elements of the system's agony. They are no longer afraid, fear is their main factor of power in the occupied countries (not in all, but just like Iraq).

      Plus, the propaganda system is weakening.
      Previously, Hollywood, Coca-Cola and other Apple-Microsoft aroused wild enthusiasm among the "natives", while with super profits in new markets, they bought the loyalty of their population and the "golden billion".
      Now this type of exploitation is becoming less profitable, advertising has become familiar everywhere, and the contents under the wrapper are not as tasty as they originally thought.
      People stop trusting, they start asking questions. And even in the US itself there are constant protests of precisely those who were deceived, not only blacks.

        Scared the naked hedgehog ... laughing
        For this, the bases are fired upon.
        But how proud Pompeo did it!
        They didn't kick us, but we left!

    Anglo-Saxon self-confidence at its finest. They are driven out with rockets, and they loudly shout to the whole world that they can punish the "offenders" by withdrawing their embassy from them. As they say - you throw them out the door, and they immediately climb out the window, threatening.

    And how did the Amers want? am They must be driven from the entire Middle East by all available means and methods!
    Iraqis remember how the Americans dropped bombs with white phosphorus on them on residential areas, schools and hospitals. These were incendiary bombs known as the Mark 77. They remember how the Americans shot hundreds of civilians in the markets in cities and the battle for Falluzhda - "Iraqi Stalingrad".

      But
      The main thing is to be deeply disappointed in time. Saddam is in a cell, the country is in ruin, thousands were killed - and "Kolya Pavlov" is deeply disappointed ...

    We must learn from the Americans how to keep our allies on a short leash. The money from the production of Iraqi oil is stored in the United States, during the last exacerbation the Iraqis demanded the withdrawal of all foreign troops, the Americans hinted that they would leave with the money, at that time $ 35 billion, and that was all, the protests subsided.

    it is unacceptable to launch rockets at our embassy, ​​attack American and other diplomats, threaten law and order in Iraq.

    This means that it is unacceptable in Iraq. And in Syria, according to the same US, it was acceptable.
    The United States, with the participation of the United Kingdom and Ukraine, actually blocked a Russian-initiated statement by the UN Security Council condemning the mortar shelling of the Russian embassy in Damascus.

    Let's wish the Iraqi rebels every success.

    Well, the US embassy in Iraq will be closed ... US bases and US troops in Iraq remain. Maybe the United States is already considering the land of Iraq as its territory? - why the US embassy in the territory of the US itself. There is no US diplomatic mission in Puerto Rico ... It is quite possible that the US considers Iraq an "Indian (Arab) reservation."
