Media: Turkish military leaving Iraq

53
Information Agency Reuters with reference to a source in the Turkish military circles, reports that the Turkish contingent has begun to abandon its position in northern Iraq. According to the source, Baghdad was able to reach an agreement with Ankara on the withdrawal of the Turkish military from Iraqi territory. Earlier, Turkish President Erdogan said that the Turkish military will remain in northern Iraq, as they allegedly serve as an instructor and guard corps for the Kurdish militia in the Iraqi province of Nainawa.


Reuters writes that a column of Turkish military on armored vehicles reached for the Turkish border. Whether it will be a full-fledged withdrawal of the military personnel of the Turkish Armed Forces or it will be rotational measures that were initiated by Erdogan and his “allies” in the Middle East - it will be possible to find out in the near future. Official information on this issue, by definition, should be published by Baghdad.

Media: Turkish military leaving Iraq


It is worth noting that, according to the governor of the Iraqi province of Ninawa, at least a thousand Turkish military and about two dozen were in the region tanks. Baghdad gave Ankara time to withdraw its contingent, but the Turkish authorities ignored the requirements. Then Baghdad announced his appeal to the leadership of NATO and his readiness to raise the issue in the UN Security Council.

    On the one hand Mi-35 appeared, on the other hand, Turkish tanks leave. Coincidence?

        And who called them to Iraq? The peacekeepers themselves bumped ... Now, if Iraq had invited them, like Syria. And so Iraq is trying to throw mattresses off the contract in order to turn to Russia.

          We need to wait for confirmation of this information, according to other media.
          And then they can change their minds.

          There is no coincidence. In addition, the Iraqi army has nothing to oppose the best army in the region. Second Army of Europe.

          Mi-35s (which, incidentally, are in Syria) cannot be a serious argument against the entire Turkish army. Turkey is a regional power. Without the use of weapons of mass destruction, the Russian Armed Forces will lose there. What to say about Iraq.

          The only thing that could really affect the possible withdrawal of troops, the position of NATO partners. Like they played too much, waved waved a saber, let it be. P.E. the prospect of fighting alone, first with Iraq, and there is not far from the war with Russia, such a prospect is not bright.

          In addition, the Turks understand that even if Russia (in the event of a war) does not achieve military success, Turkey’s infrastructure could be badly damaged - this would throw the Turks a decade ago. And they also understand the prospect of such a development of the situation.

            Well, about the hurt, that’s weakly said. The trouble with Turkey is that it is an industrialized country in a relatively small territory. Chem. factories, if they explode, then, do you consider it more hygienic to use nuclear weapons?

        As agreed to withdraw, just agree and enter back, but in larger quantities. The United States will help. And the Turks will be there officially already, which is what everyone wanted, except for Russia.

        Moscow. Kutuzov Avenue. Violating all conceivable and inconceivable rules of the road, the old woman runs across the roadway. Squeal of brakes. Hit. Granny is under the wheels of a VW Touareg V12. Due to emergency braking, the Audi A6 Allroad quattro flies into the Touareg, into it the Cube (Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen), then the Hammer H2 and Toyota Land Cruiser 100, and in turn: Rolls-Rose Phantom, Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin DB9, Porsche Cayenne and completes the picture of the Lamborghini Diablo.
        A driver comes out of Lamborghini, steps back and to the side to better see the whole picture, and pronounces with a note of admiration in his voice:
        - YES, granny left beautifully!

        This one just won't leave

    and how relatively quiet it went in western democratic media.

      - 658 tanks M60A3 TTS (American modernization, with a combined thermal imaging sight gunner AN / VSG-2);
      - 274 of the M60A1 tank;
      - 104 of the M60A1 RISE (Passive) tank, American modernization, with passive night instruments of the commander and driver;

        This is an American M60 tank. Correct if, I'm wrong: T-55, a classmate of M48, but, just M60- T-62. Our tanks, with the same reservation, are usually lighter. T-62 gun, on 5 mm., Smaller, so what. Starting speed, lower? Automatic charging, i.e., you can shoot faster and more per unit time. Moreover, obviously, the silhouette of the M60 is higher. So what is the best American?

    Turkish M-60 are in the best technical condition. Many have been upgraded. And the Syrian forces after the collapse of the USSR fell into decay. Many tanks demanded a banal repair before the Civil War.
    So Turkish tanks are really awesome as well preserved.
