Iraq begins to consider the Russian Federation as the main partner in the fight against IS

45
After disappointment in the operation against the terrorist group “Islamic State” (IG) conducted by the international coalition led by the United States, Iraq begins to consider Russia as its main partner.




Earlier there were reports of the creation of a center for the exchange of intelligence data from Iraq, Russia, Iran and Syria. According to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, the Iraqi authorities are backing Russian strikes in Syria. In addition, Iraqi Shiites have declared their active support for Russia, in particular, representatives of the Badr movement noted that they would “welcome in every way” the activities of the Russian Federation in the region, since the United States is not serious about fighting the Islamic State.

“Simple people care only about how to expel Daesh (the Arabic name of the IG) from Iraq. Now they feel that Russia is acting more seriously than the United States ", - quotes the words of the Iraqi parliament Ibrahim Bahr al-Ulum RIA "News".

      First, let the British forbid flying over Iraq

      (For the safety of British pilots)


      The leadership of Iraq is too dependent on the US State Department and it is unlikely that it will be able to do anything on its own for an alliance with RUSSIA ... the Anglo-Saxons will not give.


      The intentions are clear, only Iraq is an occupied country. Not independent


      Nevertheless, the coordination center in Baghdad was opened without NATO troops, and they are buying weapons from Russia

        Yes, in Baghdad, everyone understood everything perfectly from the beginning and "hu hu", they also knew perfectly well! But, what could they do, the puppet government, there is no support from anyone, and now Russia has appeared and they realized that only with our help they can throw off the yoke of the mattress occupation! After all, if Russia helps to destroy the igil in Iraq, then there will be no more space for mattresses, or they will have to enter into an open conflict with Russia, and that’s why their gut is thin! They are only in the media and in the UN controlled by them they can yell what kind of "cool peppers" they are, but in fact Chickencocks are tattered!

        no need to ban .... ours will do everything so that the Americans also fly ...
        there is an interesting opinion that just the lack of air defense facilities by the igils is precisely connected with the fact that they would not accidentally bring down Amer’s aviation - after all, the main igil honestly believes that they are fighting with staff members

          An interesting thought, Dear morozik, although not without controversial. The fact is that with the so-called reconstruction of the Iraqi Armed Forces, air defense systems were put into service. But on the issue of their application, the topic is interesting. Although of course I agree with you, in terms of a joint operation with the Americans, otherwise I am afraid of a dirty trick. The possibility of deliberately involving us in an operation in Iraq is quite likely. For just like that, leaving Iraq to the Americans is like death, so much finance to swell and actually leave ...

          Well, somehow such thoughts roam. hi

        This is the very Iraq whose army first shamefully fled from the Americans and surrendered Saddam

        not, those are already in ISIS, the Iraqi army is the one (Shiites basically) who shamefully fled from ISIS, leaving the equipment of 2 brigades
        Quote: Finches
        It’s just that the Iraqi leadership began to realize that if you don’t make friendship today with Russia, like Assad, then tomorrow you can share the fate of Gaddafi and Hussein!

        And how is Russia going to keep the Shiite minority in power in Iraq?
        Or will they again step on the same stupid Amerov rake? Which, having removed the Sunni Saddam and dismissed his Sunni army (which went hand in hand with ISIS and related structures), they planted a Shiite prime minister and created Iraqi armed forces based on the Shiite police of Mahdi.
        In general, does someone include the brain, that there are 90% of Sunnis in the world, and only 10% of Shiites?
        Quote: Bombardier
        It is necessary to withdraw from the game the military of Hussein (Sunnis) and then the combat capabilities will be reduced by ISIS (at least in Iraq), but they are the implacable enemies of the current Iraqi authorities (Shiites).

        anecdote, and how to get them out? If there are not only millions of them (Sunnis) in Iraq-they are the majority !!!

        Dear Eugene, so they, her fate, entu, have already shared. Iraq is actually already a protectorate. This is where the doubts arise about the initial basis of the talk about Russia's participation in the operation on the territory of Iraq. What, having invested a lot of dough in the collapse of Iraq and gaining access to its resources, will America calmly look at the increasing role of Russia in its protectorate?

      After Iraq, Shiites began to rule after Hussein, US appointees, before that the backbone of the ruling and military elite were Sunnis. Former military (Sunnis) are now the "brain" and the ridge of ISIS - this explains the success of ISIS.

      It is necessary to withdraw from the game the military of Hussein (Sunnis) and then the combat capabilities will be reduced by ISIS (at least in Iraq), but they are the implacable enemies of the current Iraqi authorities (Shiites).

Beat the enemy at every opportunity. Be a man - protect the weak and destitute from tyrants. ”

    I think that the leadership of the Russian Federation can help Iraqi comrades with air strikes by the forces of the Russian air forces. but just the thing, Shiites have power in Iraq and I won’t succeed in ending the war for many years without the coming of a Sunni government. steps are needed for a political settlement.
    given the specifics of this region, the large population, the local mentality ... the uptake of the city of war in this part of Asia will be very long, "thanks" to the star-striped freaks.

    Iraq is beginning to consider Russia as its main partner.

    So far, Iraq’s desire through the hands of Russia (VKS) is visible to inflict damage on the IS, which has settled in their country through the fault of the Americans. And what will happen next, as they say in the East, "Allah alone knows," but here the Americans need to be added. Iraq is very dependent on the United States.
