Marie Harf: Washington doesn’t worry about Iraq’s purchases of Russian weapons

24
Marie Harf, deputy head of the US State Department press service, said that the US administration was not worried about buying Russian weapons and technology iraq.



"Iraq certainly has the right to acquire military equipment from Russia and other countries in order to satisfy its legitimate defense needs," the newspaper quotes her "Sight".

Harf noted that the head of the Iraqi government, Al-Abadi, "continues to expand relations with other countries of the world."

The representative of the State Department also stated that the Russian Federation is not part of the coalition that the United States created to combat the terrorist group Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, however, according to her, the American authorities have long said that "every country can play a role in weakening" IG.

According to Harf, the United States and Iraq also have a “large and growing sales program” of military equipment and weapons, while the US supplies “such things to Iraq that no one else can transfer to him”.

It is worth noting that on Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Russian Federation was ready to begin supplying arms to Iraq and Syria to help in the fight against terrorists.

            Firstly, this is not nonsense. Why.
            1. You must understand the essence of what is happening. Iraq buys weapons from the Russian Federation. Not because he so wanted, but because it is unprofitable for America to serve everyone who needs to fight and IS.

            2. We all remember the arrival of Kerry in Russia. For what do you think.
            To ask Russia to help arm some of the participants in the armed conflict with the Islamic State.

            3. Iraqi military equipment is 70% Soviet weapons. And it’s unprofitable to re-equip the army with American standards. It’s easier to ask Russia.

            Masha Harf is simply trying to veil the very fact of a request for help in the fight against IS. They sell the marriage, and put it up as a Brand, so to speak.
            That is, the moment has come when the United States cannot pacify the "beast" which it has spawned on its own. And slowly they admit it.

              This is the only thing in which I disagree with you. They do not admit this and, on the contrary, blame Assad's "regime" and other hardships, but somehow they are silent about their involvement.

                Former CIA Deputy Head: US Counter-Terrorism Operations Contribute to Radical Population
                US intelligence doubted when they said that Saddam Hussein’s regime had chemical weapons, and it was worth mentioning to President George W. Bush; as a result, the special services were mistaken. Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell said in an exclusive interview with RT about this, as well as about what the US counterterrorism operations in the Middle East lead to.

                  Officials say the opposite. To the extent that if they had not yet invaded Iraq, this should have been done.

      In October, the check and checkmate will probably be delivered to the buck!

      The beginning of the end of the dollar system may happen already this fall, and although this process, in fact, has already been launched, a tremendous blow can be dealt to the reserve currency in October.

      As you know, every five years, the IMF reviews the composition of the reserve currency basket (SDR). Now it includes the US dollar, the British pound, the Japanese yen and the euro. This year is important not only because the time has come to review the composition of the basket, but also because the Chinese yuan has an unusually high chance of being included in it, and therefore, take a place in the list of the most reliable currencies.

      The Americans understand what this threatens and are trying in every possible way to block the inclusion of the Chinese currency in the SDR. For example, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has already said: "China is not ready for the status of a reserve currency." We shouldn't have expected anything else, frankly, from Mr. Liu in this situation.

      But the fact is that while the United States was engaged in building up the largest public debt in history, the Chinese were engaged in strategic issues of promoting their currency in much the same way as the States did at the beginning of the last century.

      If we discard all kinds of statements by analysts, officials and other experts that the yuan is not ready to become a reserve currency, and look at what work the Chinese authorities did, it becomes clear why the head of the PRC so confidently stated that the dollar is a product of the past.

        And also ... Soros prophesies war, an old stinking Russophobe is wound up! bully

        MOSCOW, May 22 - RIA News. American billionaire George Soros admitted the possibility of a new world war, the beginning of which will be the conflict between China and the United States, writes Market Watch.

        From the point of view of Soros, such a scenario is possible if the PRC focuses its economy on domestic needs, and not on exports. Then the Chinese authorities will need an external conflict in order to maintain power, he said.

        "If there is a clash between China and a US military ally, such as Japan, it would not be an exaggeration to say that we will be on the verge of a third world war," Soros quoted Market Watch.

        To avoid this, the US must make a "big concession" to China: let the yuan become part of the currency basket of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In this case, the Chinese currency can seriously compete with the dollar, Market Watch writes.

        China, in return, must concede in terms of transforming the country's economy, the billionaire said. According to him, it will be difficult for China and the United States to reach an agreement, but the alternative is "very unpleasant."

        Otherwise, there is a serious danger that China will create a political and military alliance with Russia and then the threat of a new world war will be real, summed up Soros.

    Praise to the gods, otherwise we got nervous without recall from the State Department.
    at the same time, the United States supplies “such things to Iraq that no one else can (transfer to him)”

    What democracy? This is yes, an exclusive product.

    Maybe it was not necessary to declare, but to supply and that's it. There is a saying: "The word is silver, silence is gold"

    And finally, can someone tell this scary man a good old joke: "-that's what bothers me Honduras; - don't you scratch him."

    Terrorists are those who plant bombs in crowded places. And these are already a whole state. Nobody wants to tell where they came from? And maybe, following the example of the State Department, our Ministry of Foreign Affairs also hold such press conferences?
