Coalition spokesman: Washington did not give Turkey a green light to fight IS in Iraq

35
Steve Warren, the official spokesman for the so-called American "anti-Gilov" coalition in Iraq, answered the question asked by Iraqi journalists about whether the US military contingent in the province of Ninawa (northern Iraq) is regarded as part of the coalition. Steve Warren said that the States do not view the Turkish contingent in this vein.


Coalition spokesman: Washington did not give Turkey a green light to fight IS in Iraq


Warren's statement leads RIA Newsreferring to the Iraqi TV channel Alsumaria:

Turkish forces are not part of the international coalition, the United States did not give them the green light to fight the IS.


It turns out that it is from the United States that the “green light” emanates from the fight against the IG ... It is understandable: a unique state.

The question by Iraqi journalists about the status of the Turkish military contingent remaining in Iraq was raised against the background of the silence of Baghdad about the presence of Turkish occupying forces in the country. Recall that earlier, official Ankara has repeatedly stated that it is not going to withdraw troops and armored vehicles from the north of Iraq, since the contingent allegedly helps Kurdish units to conduct combat training in the fight against IS. Iraq first protested, then actually resigned.

The statement that the Turks are helping the Kurds to fight terrorism in Iraq looks like something from the realm of fantasy, or undisguised hypocrisy. Especially if we take into account the fact that the Turks stubbornly refuse to see Kurds as part of the opposition delegation of Syria in Geneva and, in addition, continue the military operation against the Kurdish population in the south-east of Turkey itself.

    Washington did not give "green light" to Turkey to fight IS in Iraq

    But it gave this light, apparently, to the fight against the legitimate government of Syria and the Kurds.

    But (in the order "why not?") It will be nice if the Americans restrain their overzealous mongrels in the person of Erdogan.

      I think the meaning of what has been said is that the States were not informed of the pirate Turkish raid on Iraqi territory. Hence these distant statements by Steve Warren.
      Erdogad and for them an unpredictable and unpleasant problem.

        Oh oh ??? A lightning raid in Iraq, supposedly to prepare Iraqi Kurds to fight IS, unintentional destruction of the Russian SU-34 and its commander, shelling of Syrian Kurds fighting IS, etc.

      First of all, you should understand that Turkish Kurds, Syrian Kurds and Iraqi Kurds are DIFFERENT Kurds! Playing on the differences and different goals of all these Kurds, Erdogan is trying to seize the initiative in this region, in order to subsequently present the "coalition" with a fact. The "coalition" clearly does not like this behavior of a NATO member, but they cannot say it out loud. So, friends, we read between the lines ..
      Anglo-schnapps will not tolerate this for a long time! I wonder who they stuck instead of Erdogad?

      Has anyone ever given any light to the Americans themselves? These "chief executives" operate according to the principle: red is ours, green is common.

      Behind the usual rhetoric of our generals covering the actions of the Aerospace Forces in Syria, something more significant than warnings could be hidden, and we most likely will not wait until Washington begins to bring the Turkish mongrel in line. The time for palpating our combat capabilities has passed. There is more at stake than a pure fight against ISIS ... For all the "greatness" and ambition of Washington, insolence and dementia of Erdogan, a decision is made in accordance with the title of the film:
      "Nobody wanted to die" ...

        And what prevents Americans from doing the same? If the Turks did not agree with anyone to send troops into Iraq, then they should be recognized as the aggressor and soaked by the whole world. How did Saddam pressanuli after Kuwait, remember?
        Or was there a separate UN permit for the deployment of the Turkish army contingent outside Turkey? In particular, in Iraq or Syria?

        They have the wrong grenades.
        And if seriously, the strength is not enough. The Turks have the largest army in the region. And if they can complain about anything, ask for air support in the fight against the "treacherous" Iraqi government request
        Iraqis can only wag their tongues and complain to the UN.

      The most important thing in the logic of the coalition is its complete absence.
      There is only one law "THE ONE IS RIGHT WITH MORE RIGHTS"
      From here it’s a simple as a stick conclusion and the main message to our VKS is to DRILL ALL IN THE EARTH by the very throat so that you can hear the words of mercy.

    So the Turks were not going to fight IS. They just cover the barmaley. Russia will not dare to bomb a "member" of NATO. In fact, this is just an excuse for Russia to show or prove that they are not giving us anything.

    Why are you clinging to Iraq? Do you want specifically that he knocked a shoe on the platform at the UN?
    Everyone has his own party. Iraq: and now I am asking Russia. Turkey: I help, I help.
    Iraq: I didn’t ask. Turkey: oh I'm leaving, oh hem is hooked. Iraq is silent ...
    And what does it mean that Allah knows, and the USA.
