State Department: Western coalition has achieved a significant result in Iraq

According to US Undersecretary of State Anthony Blinken, the Iraqi government "recognizes the existence of significant progress as a result of coalition efforts to combat IS" in the country, reports RIA News.




"Established over a year ago with the participation of 65 states, it has achieved significant progress in the fight against the" Islamic State "in cooperation with the Iraqi government and the people of the country," Blinken said.

“A year ago there was a serious threat of taking Baghdad, Erbil, Mosul was captured, Tikrit was captured, but for a year it was possible to secure Baghdad, Erbil. IG lost 30% of the territories it controlled a year ago ",
he noted.

“We will continue these efforts together,” the diplomat added.

        No well, they really achieved. Let's admit it. The creation of terrorist bases for training militants for ISIS, the sending of ammunition and equipment across the bridge from Iraq to Syria. By the way, our falcons smashed the bridge and the supply stopped.

        65 states! Wow! For the whole year! 30%!
        What is it!
        Praise or undersigned?
        By and large, a gang of scumbags.
        Well organized, but frost-bitten.
        The coalition itself needs to be fingernail. Where do the scumbags sell oil? Where do the antiquities that can be budged are drained?
        The task is practically without the unknown, the same coalition.
        Now it’s possible to give the answer as well, nobody will touch the accomplices, while it’s profitable.

      Yeah. For the whole year, 65 states, represented by the USA, could not even come close to the results that were achieved in just a month ONE country, Russia. But now they are in a hurry to cling to successes, then to declare that this is all they, the only ones have done. Just like after the Second World War.

    "Created more than a year ago with the participation of 65 states, it has made significant progress in the fight against the Islamic State in cooperation with the Iraqi government and the people of the country," Blinken said.

    Well, you see how great! the State Department, through the mouth of his employee Blinken, praised himself;) otherwise you will not praise yourself and no one will praise!
    it would have sounded much more convincing from the lips of someone from the "government of Iraq", but apparently the State Department is not at risk of entrusting the natives with such an important matter as declaring "overwhelm" ... otherwise they will confuse everything ... or they will call upon Russia to help ...
    on this, the "government of Iraq" let it be silent in a rag and on the head itself will be stroked by a person named Blinken;)

    They beat off Mosul? Or Tikrit? Ishil stopped looming in the Iraqi desert, and it became possible to talk about 30% of the liberated territory? And, on the other hand, what else can they say against the backdrop of the undoubted progress of government forces in Syria. So they screamed - we too, and we too ... We hunted the beast together, the lapdog told the wolfhound. I also barked!

    Of course I did. As in the 45th, all the most combat-ready were sent against the Russians, and on their front they attacked in marching order. The stubborn should cut with the Russians, and not stop Halliburton from seizing oil assets in Iraq. For the sake of such assets, American terrorists can be thrown money.

    Maybe I am a little biased towards the statements of the State Department and other partners, but I constantly get the feeling that these false hypocrites are holding everyone for fools. But the faces themselves do not shine with the mind, look carefully at his face. I'm not talking about other famous talking heads of the State Department. I think here is a calculation for a key audience.

    stormed the large city of Tikrit (200,000 inhabitants), which was in the hands of the IG.

    Partly he is right.

    At critical moments a year ago, the fate of Baghdad hung in the balance, and the IS was already operating in the nearby suburbs of the capital.

    Now the threat to Baghdad is only from sabotage groups, suicide bombers and such sabotage MLRS, which they attacked the Shiite region for weeks.


    Tikrit was taken by IG. Baigi and the largest oil refinery in the country under the IG.

    Now Tikrit has been beaten off, but they are constantly running into the bases and checkpoints. Yes, the same Spencer is fired upon, but nevertheless, the City and highways are under the control of the authorities during the day.

    Baiji is the bloodiest battle of the year. This meat grinder, active fights went more than half a year with a swing. First, they lost everything, then the Shiite police, the Imam Ali brigade, the Iranians, the Solntsepeks and the 9 tank recaptured the city and began to fight for the refinery (even special forces and intelligence agents made their way inside). Then the IS launched a counterattack using the Shiites' rejection (the religious massacre began in the city, the Sunnis brutally killed the Shiite mid-level commander on the very first night - in response, the Shiites stiffly cleansed them with heads and shots) - he took the city again and cut off the guys at the refinery. However, as a result of very difficult battles, the IG exhausted and lost the refinery and the city.

    Anbar - there is a sluggish, more constraining attack on Ramadi, for a month they took the Stadium from a large one. In Fallujah, too, crush.

    Now the IS has very sensitively hit Samarra. Again firmly walked around the desert and hit the rear. It is not clear what forces. But the crisis is already serious. However, again, Samarra is the sacred city for Iran - there is Ali’s grave, if the Islamic State gets to the grave, then everything about the largest shrine can be forgotten. Therefore, Iran holds powerful reserves there, and if there is a threat, army units will be introduced.

    So the situation in Iraq is relatively stable now. And a sharp crisis of strategic importance is unlikely. As well as a sharp turnaround in the victory of government forces, without the strong support of a third force, and on earth.

      I really liked your phrase "the city and highways during the day under the control of the authorities" good And at night?
      But this can be presented in another way ... during the day, the militants sleep off and conduct reconnaissance, and at night they fight ...
      And what do they control then? Their digestion?
      In my opinion a complete imitation of activity.
