US continues to fear Baghdad with “consequences” of cooperation with Moscow

56
American officials from the Obama administration continued to exert pressure on the Iraqi authorities. A few days ago it was announced that Iraq should be grateful for the help to Washington, and it “for some reason” is on the path of rapprochement with Moscow. Now the American tantrum continued. Representatives of the Pentagon joined the case.


US continues to fear Baghdad with “consequences” of cooperation with Moscow


The head of the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, Joseph Dunford, stated that "the United States will not be able to provide Iraq with the necessary assistance if there are Russian military personnel on the territory of the country." These words Dunford expressed during his unannounced visit to Baghdad. Dunford said that Iraq only in military assistance with the United States can conduct effective efforts to eliminate the militants of the so-called "Islamic State."

It’s strange why Mr. Dunford didn’t say anything about why, with such large-scale coalition assistance led by the USA, Iraq, the number of militants in this long-suffering state continued to grow for a long time, as did the territories controlled by ISIL continue to expand? ..

Following a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, an American military official said that al-Abadi allegedly assured him of his desire to continue to rely on the United States in countering the so-called Islamic State. US media quotes Dunford:

The prime minister assured me that his country was not looking and was not seeking military support from Russia.

        It is strange why Mr. Dunford did not say anything about why, with such massive assistance from the US-led coalition the number of militants in this long-suffering state continued to grow for a long time, how did ISIS-controlled territories continue to expand? ..
        Do you know why, because the Iraqis did little to help American peacekeepers fight ISIS terrorists! After all, the United States is climbing over so that there is an American order throughout the world! And for some reason nobody helps them with this!

          Foreign policy of the Obama administration has led to the fact that a number of states in the Middle East will soon have nuclear weapons, and this is a disaster, writes political analyst James Lewis in the American Thinker.

              Not only Iraq is feeling American pressure. Americans are beginning to enrage the attempts of governments of any country to cooperate with Russia.
              Именно этим США показывают свое лицо- любыми способами противоборствовать нашей стране и навязать нам свою "дерьмократию".

              Well, here you are not quite right. Your statement is true if you identify the government and the country. But this situation is completely different! Americans are completely logical in their demands. They say something like this:
              Мы вам (иракскому правительству) дали этот шанс. При Саддаме вы хвосты ишакам крутили, а теперь стали властью. За это вы должны исполнять наши требования, идут они на пользу "вашей" стране или нет, не ваша печаль! Страна не ваша, она наша (американская), мы ее с вашей помощью захватили, а вам просто позволено на этой территории грабить да воровать, и надувать при этом щеки. Все.
              Если вы будете упрямиться, мы для начала "прекратим помощь", то есть перестанем перечислять деньги, которые вы пилите с нашими банками. Да, вам, беспонтовым иракцам, достается из этих денег добро если 2%. Ну и что, все равно халява! Отберем. И т.д.

      Well Yes !! Well Yes!. A few days ago a bill was sent to the Parliament on Iraq’s appeal to help in the fight against ISIS. US rabies is not imaginable. Russia in the person of the President has clearly stated to the world community. Only legally and in compliance with International Law. Russia destroys the rules that existed before. And this implies a very interesting aspect. What situation might the Yankees face in Iraq. The fact that the pressure is very strong on the United States by the Iraqi authorities doesn’t go to Mom. Let’s see. Yes, Russia really hit the United States at the UN Assembly. Everything is only by law. While the United States is conducting fierce propaganda against our country, But they did not find a solution to this unexpected problem. Not all countries have realized that it took time. But the unipolar world has been hit hard diplomatically. The near future will be shown by the decision of Iraq. And not only this country there are many of them and they will carefully monitor and compare these different positions in International Law.

    Habitual policy of the ovsky military. However, like their Foreign Ministry. How much they differ from the policy line pursued by the Russian Foreign Ministry! The states behave like a plowman in the zone, like invaders in an occupied country, which, however, is actually the case. In general, I can’t recall at least some military operation of the US military carried out wisely until its logical conclusion.

    And what remains for them, the situation escapes from their control. If they did, at least they controlled something. And the Iraqi leaders just want to live. In general, the situation from the point of view of history has formed an interesting one. Concentration of the interests of different forces in one region. But then I came forester (read Putin), and heaped on everyone. And Russia behaves correctly, everything is only within the framework of the law, without betraying anyone like an ice rink from the hill, it is inevitable. I hope our authorities discussed in advance, with Assad, what we get after the victory. For example, military bases for life. Contracts for our companies, sales market. It may be enough to help everyone for free.

    US continues to fear Baghdad with “consequences” of cooperation with Moscow

    The meaning is approximately the following.
    Iraqis, if you continue to cooperate with Moscow, then you run the risk of establishing your life again. In your cities they will stop shooting, your inhabitants will stop dying from shelling. And you run the risk of your economy starting to recover.
    And then we are nothing, you hear, nothing we can not help you. )))
