26
US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter says that "in order to strengthen the fight against Daesh (ISIL)" in Iraq, additional special forces of the US Armed Forces will be deployed. This was reported by the agency Rider in his Twitter microblog. Recall that 50 US Special Forces troops are already on Iraqi territory and, according to the Pentagon, are training Iraqi troops to counter terrorists DAISH.


Media: The Pentagon announces the upcoming dispatch of additional US special forces "to fight ISIS" to Iraq


Now the Pentagon is considering the possibility of increasing the US military contingent in Iraq. To what extent this increase will be made - not yet reported.

The media has become aware of the reaction of Baghdad to the statements of the US Secretary of Defense and to the dispatch of the US military to Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said that before making such statements, it would be good for Washington to coordinate actions with the official authorities of Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister quoted news agency TASS:

The Iraqi government emphasizes that any military operation or deployment of any foreign troops, special or not, in any place in Iraq cannot take place without approval (by the Iraqi authorities), coordination (actions with Baghdad) and full respect for Iraqi sovereignty.

A strange man, this prime minister of Iraq. After all, he, as a representative of the Iraqi authorities, should be well aware that the United States in its time did not put the sovereignty of Iraq into anything, having carried out its invasion, which actually destroyed statehood. If statehood in Iraq suddenly intends to return, then the United States will still do its job with the aim of preventing this from happening. Order in Iraq is simply not part of American interests.

        The vital necessity associated with the advancement of Assad's army - well, it became difficult to quickly support the advancing troops and flatten ISIS from the coast, again 3 km of the strip and the reserve expand - it will be convenient to receive An-124 and Il-76 from an "air bridge" in case of tension with straits.

        sovereignty ended when Hussein was hanged

        this is the same as talking about the sovereignty of Libya after the murder of Gaddafi by English or Qatari special forces or Ukraine after the expulsion of Yanukovych by masked gangs

      Somehow bad associations come to mind. Last time,
      The Pentagon also announced the direction of the tactical sub-
      division of special forces to Syria. This led to the tragedy of the su-24!
      And as you know, there are no coincidences in politics! There is only
      natural sequence in achieving any goal
      by the way!

    All these maneuvers with the sending of American special forces, with the connection of the British, Germans and French to the conflict, smell very bad. It seems to me that all this fraternity will cover up the Turkish occupation of part of Syrian territories under the pretext of fighting Daesh. what

    before making such statements, it would be nice for Washington to coordinate actions with Iraqi authorities

    Well guys you want a lot. Where Washington considers itself to be the master, he does not coordinate anything with anyone.

    Indeed, and who invites them ??? In this case, we can send our troops anywhere, even to the states themselves, if you use their logic.

    It's time for Iraq to ask for protection from Russia.
    Unless, of course, this people wants to live independently.

    Shiite Groups are categorically against !!!

    “We have fought against them before and are now ready to start fighting again,” said a spokesman for the Kata'ib Hisbollah Group on Tuesday. US Special Forces will be the main target for his fighters. The Iran-backed Badr Organization and the Asaib Ahl al-Hak Group expressed similar views.

    The Americans are losing and may lose completely their political influence in this region, in connection with the successful and uncompromising actions of Russia in the fight against international terrorism. It is clear to everyone that Russia will not leave Syria now until it achieves a concrete result. Therefore, in order to "save face", military contingents from Europe and the USA are hastily sent to the Middle East ...

      The Americans can take control of a large territory of Syria from Iraq, now occupied by the Islamic state. In this way, they will protect the militants so that Assad and Russia will not completely defeat them. The United States is not profitable to end the war in Syria so that Russia remains the winner. And it is not profitable for them to eradicate ISIS, because this is their brainchild, which can still be useful to them.

    In the late 70s, Turkey announced that it was considering closing the passage through the Bosphorus to the Mediterranean for warships of the Soviet Union. To this statement, comrade Gromyko told American reporters at a cocktail party in the White House: “For passage to the Mediterranean, the USSR’s Black Sea Fleet
    it will take only a couple of volleys of missiles. As a result
    this will appear two more passes in the Mediterranean, but alas, there will be no Istanbul. ”
    After these words, Turkey no longer raised the issue of closing the Bosphorus to warships of the USSR

    The US must always be dealt with very harshly. It is not a country that understands diplomatic language, but rather people who need to be sent directly to the farm! Otherwise, their "modesty" will not do good. Therefore, much depends on Iraq itself. Their very idea of ​​treacherous help must be cut down in the bud.
