Ankara: Turkish militaries in Iraq teach militias to fight IS


“The IG controls 30% of Iraq’s territory. Our main goal is to support Iraq in the fight against IS. This is the reason for our activity in Bashik, where we have been training representatives (Kurdish militias) of the Peshmerga, the National Guard since March 2015. Among those whom we teach and equip are not only Arabs and Kurds, but also Christians and Turkmen. It is impossible to cope with the IG without combining all these forces. We will continue to work in this direction. We talked with (US Vice President) Joseph Biden during his visit about how to unite our forces ",
said a diplomat on Monday.

He noted that Turkey "is important territorial integrity and stability in neighboring Iraq."

“There were cases of IS attacks on us (camp in Bashik), after which we strengthened our presence in Iraq. This caused some concern in Baghdad, ”Cavusoglu added.

    "We spoke with (US Vice President) Joseph Biden during his visit about how to join forces."
    Without curator Biden, without him nowhere! I have no doubt that when our plane was shot down, they also had a sincere conversation with him. And the question immediately arises: are the militias ... or "moderate terrorists" after all?

      Turkey "territorial integrity and stability in neighboring Iraq is important."

      It can be seen especially from the affairs and words of the Turkish Fuhrer Erdogan that he introduced the Turkish military contingent to Iraq and is not going to leave. He learned to lie from his friends and curators of the minke whales.

      What kind of war is it, if five times a day you need to spread a doormat and pray to Allah, and even go home to visit the harem, first of all, to many commanders of the Syrian army laughing And the rest the worse? So it turns out that before lunch the village was cleaned up, and in the evening they handed over. The same is in Iraq. For discipline in the army, see the comments of Marat Musin.

    Turks are fighting terrorists in Iraq or helping Iraqis in the fight against terrorists - this is already a fantasy.

    "after which we strengthened our presence in Iraq. This caused some concern in Baghdad," Cavusoglu added.

    Cavusoglu forgot to add: "But we put concern on them (Baghdad)"

    Question: how much territory will Iraq have to give for Turkey for such assistance? Troops on the territory of other countries just do not enter.

    Or maybe they are looking for excuses for the invasion of Iraq, they hang the noodles with their help to the militia. They destroy the Kurds themselves, and in Iraq they rushed to help them.

    This caused some concern in Baghdad, ”Cavusoglu added.
    Actually, this aroused concern not only in Baghdad. Once again, where are the heart-rending cries of our diplomats? And the flow of appeals to the UN Security Council. Although they would be formally going to work? Or is it to be an ambassador only for receptions? For our future history, our position on this issue should be indicated now. Erdogan by law should be cornered.
    But if Mishka Saakashvili, who personally gave the order to kill hundreds of Russian citizens, freely rides around the world and has not opened a criminal case against him, why hasn’t his security services dragged him to Russia in some kind of box yet, unless he’s certainly an FSB agent specializing in breaking up various countries. It is necessary by the way the SBU to hint about this, let them bicker among themselves.

    "Turkish military instructors in Iraqi Bashik are training various militias to fight ISIS terrorists."
    The proposal has clearly been censored! Obviously in the original it was like this: "Turkish military instructors in the Iraqi region of Bashik are preparing various militia forces to fight along with IS terrorists."

    “IS controls 30% of Iraqi territory. Our main goal is to "take it under our control and pump it, pump it, pump it .... (oil)" statement by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.
    A statement to the press is not what a sober politician has in mind.

    after which we strengthened our presence in Iraq

    There would be a desire, but you can always find a reason. Turks trembled a bit about our downed aircraft (urgent appeal to NATO, flows of lies) began to intensively implement their interests in Syria and Iraq. At the same time, they enjoy official support from the United States.

    They teach the militias to fight ISIS, they will not tell the truth - they train new militants for ISIS.
