US media: US special forces have long been operating in Iraq

20
In the edition Bloomberg View An article was released that sheds light on Ashton Carter’s recent statements about the "ability of US special forces to launch a ground operation in Rakka (Syria) and Ramadi (Iraq)." Recall that the head of the Pentagon announced that the US is going to increase "the power of the anti-Igil operation." The authors of the material in Bloomberg View Eli Lake and Josh Rogin report that Carter is clearly disingenuous, as the American special operations forces have long been performing certain tasks in the countries of the Middle East.


US media: US special forces have long been operating in Iraq


From the article material:
The United States is trying to create the impression that US troops are preparing to take part in a ground mission in the region, where Obama had earlier promised not to engage special forces in ground operations. However, in fact, the US special forces have been doing such work for a long time, especially in Northern Iraq, where the positions of Kurdish formations are strong. The special forces had time to create an impressive infrastructure there. And this raises questions about what was called the “upcoming new operation.”


At the same time, the publication says that Obama signed a document last year permitting the Pentagon to transfer Special Forces fighters to Iraqi territory. Officially - for advice and guidance.

From the material:
In fact, in the north of Iraq, there is already an operational center, staffed by US special forces from the rapid response team, whose task is to detect high-ranking IG leaders. There are other special forces who are responsible for the adjustment of air strikes on cars, camps and militant buildings.


How true is the information that the American special forces reveal the coordinates of the leaders of ISIS for their destruction - still a big question.

In this regard, we can recall the sharp statement of the President of Turkey Erdogan, in which he stated that the Turkish army can begin active inflicting on "US allies."

    "American media: the CIA represented by the US Special Forces or the CIA Special Forces have long been present in Iraq" - this is more or less similar to the truth.

      I would even say that this is true. US special forces train ISIS terrorists in Iraq.

      A slight inaccuracy. The corrected version should be
      In fact, in the north of Iraq there is already an operations center staffed by American special forces from the operational response group, which is tasked with SBIgunning of senior IS leaders

    “I will never forget,” says the American Marine, “how the militants broke into our barracks. There was a fight!
    I am alone, there are six of them. In the end, I made them all lie on the floor.
    - How did you do it?
    - Very simple. They tried to pull me out from under the bed.

    In the Middle East, everything and everyone mixed up .. everyone’s goals are different and they don’t really know who needs what, but people are dying in batches ... this energy and in a peaceful direction --- they built a bridge to Jupiter ..

    I see, I see a picture - an invincible US special forces, digging head over heels in the sand, looking for ATVs with terrorists. After three days of consultations - whether this is a moderate opposition or not - a blow is struck, what the hell difference, sitting in the sand is awkward. Judging by the long-standing mess, this is what is happening.

      Anything other than the demolition of unprofitable buildings in New York on September 11, the cunning action in the Bay of Pigs, the great naval battle in the Gulf of Tonkin and the blowing up of 250 blacks on the cruiser Maine do not come to mind to me. Well, maybe another circus with the hiding of Ben Laden ...

      True, there was still an attempt to free the hostages at the US Embassy in Tehran in 1980.
      During the assault attempt, the Americans accidentally set fire to a helicopter, an airplane, a fuel depot and a bus, after which the Delta fighters retreated in panic. 53 hostages sat at the embassy of 444 of the day and were released only through negotiations.
      Well, this is generally a classic. It is necessary to write down in textbooks. Here already wrote http://topwar.ru/36762-operaciya-orlinyy-kogot.html

    The author writes - "In this regard, one can recall the harsh statement of Turkish President Erdogan, in which he said that the Turkish army could begin to actively target the" US allies. "
    "- Turkey will do everything that depends on it, including preventive military operations, to prevent the creation of their own autonomy by the Kurds in Syria," Erdogan said. Just don't understand how this is connected with the actions of the American special forces to identify the coordinates of the ISIS leaders. Something is mixed up in a heap request

      Here is your answer to your question. The rapprochement between Turkey and Russia did not like the European Union and the United States, as it was frustrated by plans for gas transit of gas through Ukraine. Yes, and in the issue of sanctions, Turkey did not support the European Union and the United States. Now the Kurdish is getting tighter crisis. Here Americans can create supply bases if they have not already created, as in Pakistan during the Afghan war. Especially now it was heard; in Austria, at a meeting of foreign ministers for Syria, Turkey again insists on the removal of Assad from power in Syria while even the United States is against the removal of Assad. This is to the peak of Turkey the United States is creating special forces bases in Iraq and on the borders of Kurdistan. It’s easiest to manipulate both Kurds and ISIS. The Americans do not need stability in this region. And these bases can be manipulated even the UAE, CA and Qatar. The main sponsors of ISIS.

    What infrastructure?, Where? That you "mold a hunchback", act for their own interests and catch the leaders, what would then "recruit", it is not worth writing about aviation at all, so what are the Americans doing there?

      Is it worth it to falsify ?!
      The militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) published a video filming the execution of British citizen David Haines.

    Absolutely all the actions and conversations of these people and MEMBER countries are in great doubt, because this has been repeatedly convinced to this day. And as for Erdogan, it’s also difficult to say, because tries to be friends with Russia and licks the Obama farm. It's my opinion.

    Right now, at this moment, M. Bohm in Babayan's "The Right to Vote", with metal in his voice, proves that they do not participate in ground operations.
