Military Review

A spokesman for the US command said that US marines at a military base in Iraq - "a temporary measure

Steve Warren, a spokesman for the US forces in Iraq and Syria, told the media how many American troops are currently in Iraqi territory. According to him, it is 3 thousand. 870 people, which is "the maximum allowable number that the US does not exceed."


If "the United States does not exceed" this number, then it turns out that it was reached exactly at that moment when around the 200 US Marines were transferred to the Mahmur military base. If the number of US military in Iraq has not changed, then it turns out that, simultaneously with the arrival of the US Marines in Makhmur, other American servicemen were withdrawn from Iraq, but the Pentagon did not publish any information about this kind of withdrawal.

A spokesman for the US command said that US marines at a military base in Iraq - "a temporary measure


According to Warren, the American contingent at the military base in Makhmur is "a temporary measure." Warren notes that the Pentagon has transferred marines to Iraq as "one of the component operations in Mosul." It should be recalled that Iraqi Mosul is occupied by various militant groups, primarily ISIS militants. According to the US command of the forces in Iraq and Syria, US marines "are guarding military instructors who help in training Iraqi troops." Earlier it was noted that the military personnel of Canada could be added to the “instructors”. Apparently, Ottawa seriously believes that her “instructors” have a vast experience of “anti-terrorist training”.

It is also reported that the positions of militants from American long-range guns are being fired from the territory of a military base in Makhmur.

        According to Warren, the American contingent at the military base in Mahmur is "this is a temporary measure."
        Well, if you look at things from a philosophical point of view, then everything in this world is temporary, even the world itself. But in this particular case, I would like to ask: "And what, excuse me ..., are you building military bases so far from America that you have forgotten in this country, which is far from hospitable to you, gentlemen Americans? Did someone invite you here?"

          This is what Putin said when he introduced the videoconferencing system into Syria! They want to pinch off a piece of such authority!
          Only now Putin has fulfilled.

    3 thousand 870 people

    To protect themselves. Today they showed how coalition aviation bombed Mosul. I don’t know what precision weapons the United States is proud of, but in this city, in my opinion, it does not smell. Large losses among the civilian population, which for Americans are just attendant. And deathly silence from various human rights organizations.

    No matter what, they didn’t say it, but P’s actions are extremely accurate and timely:
    Withdrew the main group - sit down to negotiate.
    Warned about Erdogan - pay is unknown for what. The refugee will take - will return normal fighters.
    He said that we have "for you" - they fly, ride, bomb on the ranges of Russia ... And do not fluff ... Ten thousand fighters at a time.
    Do not miss, gentlemen ... hi
