Iraq does not intend to give in to external pressure in the matter of choosing an ally in the war against the "Islamic state", reports RIA News Statement by the Ambassador of Iraq to the United States, Lukman Faili.


Iraqi ambassador to the United States: Baghdad will not succumb to outside pressure in choosing an ally against the IS


On Wednesday, the Syrian government reported that Washington was putting pressure on Iraq, trying to prevent coordination of actions against terrorists between Damascus and Baghdad.

“Countries can put pressure on us, but the decisions we make are based on our own interests. Of all the types of politics, the global fight against IS must become the primary issue for everyone ”,
said faili.

Meanwhile, in Iraq itself, a deputy group is being formed to pressure the government. The purpose of its creation is to persuade the country's leadership to turn to Russia with a request to expand the antiterrorist operation to the territory of Iraq.

"Deputies of the national coalition began to appeal to colleagues from other political blocs in order to form a parliamentary pressure group that would urge the government to come forward with a request for Russian cooperation in launching air strikes against the Islamic State, as well as restoring Iraqi military plants.", - said the representative of the national coalition Mouffaffaq Ar-Rabii.

        Shiites are in power in Iraq. Therefore, they also work very closely with Iran, and they do not forget about Syria, but their main sponsor is still the United States. The Americans put them in power, trained the army, armed them, they help with money. So the United States - indirectly, of course, in Iraq stands hand in hand with Iran, and in Syria acts against Iran - such are the twists and turns of politics. bully

          In fact, ISIS is Iraqi Sunnis.
          If we say ISIS in Syria - they are alien and local, then in IRAQ - they are all local.
          And he arose in Iraq from the military (Sunnis) expelled from the army
          Americans in their stupid policies drove the Sunnis out of the Iraqi army and put Shiites there.
          Well, it has begun.

          IMHO, it is thought that this is not so. They just want to drag us into a protracted "kerguda" and picking up the fragments perpetrated by the Americans in this china shop. One must be extremely careful and pragmatic and do only what is beneficial to Russia, and not to the ephemeral "humanity". yes

    Perhaps the key to getting started is
    Deputies of the national coalition began to turn to colleagues from other political blocs with the goal of forming a parliamentary pressure group that would urge the government to come forward with a request for Russian cooperation

    There must be national consent in a country torn to pieces .. and only then everything else .. and internal "enemies" can be marked with a "marker" at this stage of formation and gaining at least some independence, he is Anglo-Saxons.

      That's the whole point. If the operation in Syria is successful, then the Yankees will be in a political cesspool. Iraq and all Arab countries will understand who is "responsible for the bazaar" and who is the last "chatterbox". On whom you can rely, and who is not worth it. The influence of the West will rapidly nullify. This is one of the consequences of the Syrian “attack” of GDP, and there are still many of them - the State Department doesn’t know which hole to patch up and will “flog all kinds of nonsense”. hi

    Iraq is starting to show its character, which is already good. Iraqis still keep in their heads the occupation and destruction of the country by the Americans. But it is not for nothing that they say that thoughts are material. Therefore, it is possible that the United States will still feel their character on itself.

    The Yankees apparently do not know the proverbs — the East is a delicate matter)) And if they knew, they would understand the main thing — in the East they respect only strength and gold. Both the Americans faded, and besides, they never had control over the situation in Iraq. While it was beneficial for certain circles in Iraq to be “friends” with the Yankees, they did it, now the situation is reversed. In the East it’s always like that, it’s not always clear who actually plays whom. According to Afghanistan, the situation is still familiar, there are also locals who are doing their thing for us, sort of by the way they pulled us up)) Children of the East, they are much more patient, cunning and far-sighted than they seem at first sight.
    Everything is clear with the Americans, if only ours would not be led to this again.

    "will be call on the government to request cooperation of the Russian Federation in the application of airstrikes on the "Islamic State", as well as the restoration of Iraqi military factories "...

    Some information is twitchy and confusing ...

    At the end of THIS week there was infa that the Iraqi prime minister turned to us with this request, but there was a certain incident that consisted in the proposal to base Russian planes together on the same base in American ... After that, there was a pause ... I so and I thought that an official request - is, ours only solve the problem - to be placed with the Yankees or nett

    And here - they will only call for treatment ...

    The only thing that was added was a request for the restoration of military factories ...

    PS Yes, and it is necessary to help in the restoration ... Anyway, so many burrs have been hung on us ...

    I think that if the Iraqis call on Russia to bomb ISIS on their territory, then Russia will agree. After all, you still need to beat the terrorists in a wide circle, wherever they run. Right now they are tearing from Russian bombs and missiles towards Turkey. The question is, why ??? What are they waiting for? They will be hidden and fed there? Why did they rush there? About the United States is another song! They are sitting in the Big Puddle and very much hope that ISIS will not reach them. And why? The first is ISIS their offspring (they are now dropping their ammunition and weapons), the second is, as mentioned above, sitting behind a natural barrier (the ocean), the third is the Yankees helping the Ishilovites create an enemy for them in the person of Russia and other European states. However, the Yankees should not forget that crazy terrorists' views on the United States can instantly change. And then, the new September 11th !?

    Somehow everyone forgot that Iraq is a country defeated and occupied by the States. It is enough to hook part of the current political elite of Iraq, reinforcing this with airspace control and small military special forces in oil-producing areas. This is quite enough for the States. the rest of Iraq’s porridge is not interesting to them. In addition, the IG in the role of a chain dog: they will say the face, weaken support for Baghdad, and they themselves will come running, fall into the legs of amers. very neatly and carefully needed with the current Iraqi leadership. It seems that with the hands and means of Russia they want to solve a number of local problems.
