Military Review

In the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff, the United States declared its readiness to open another US military base in Iraq.

The US military has issued a statement that in the current situation, the number of US military bases in Iraq may not be enough to effectively counter the militants of the ISIL terrorist group. According to Admiral Andrew Lewis, who is the deputy director of operations for the CNS (Headquarters Committee), a new American military base may appear in Iraq.


This base, Admiral Lewis, called the base "possible fire support", which the US troops provide to the Iraqi army, as it counteracts the ISIL fighters.

A US military official said that the need to create a new military base is due to the fact that Iraqi troops need support in the liberation of the city of Mosul, which is currently occupied by the Igilovites. Reports about it RIA News. Apparently, without the creation of another US military base in Iraq, such support is impossible ...

In the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff, the United States declared its readiness to open another US military base in Iraq.


Attempts to knock out ISIS fighters from Mosul have been going on for several months, but all these attempts fail. The closest to victory over the Ishilovites in the Mosul area were Iraqi troops at the end of last year. However during the offensive of the Iraqi army aviation the so-called “American coalition” once again “overshot” and dealt a bombing attack on the advanced forces of the Iraqi Armed Forces. Then several dozen Iraqi soldiers were killed, and the militants went on the counterattack and again recaptured the positions that had previously been managed to take control of the Iraqi army.

        So I don’t understand, they are all building and building their military bases, and we have ONE base in Syria and in reality we are doing the most together in the war against ISIS. Another Shtatovsky drank dough in the defense industry? Likely.

          they don’t want to kill their own. Still useful. Crawl the Iraqi Army, such as by mistake. Damn, I'm losing weight from such an absurdity

          Wushido Dis! 13.16. And why such thoughts that the tasks of our army and the vile are identical? We carry out our tasks, they are our own. We have solved our problems. They do their job well. And for all 100%! What they wanted, they achieved. As you yourself noted, we are in the war against ISIS. Do they fight against? They themselves say we are fighting terrorists! Is it really incomprehensible?

          Most likely, there, where they do not expect to get it by the "tinsel".
          But for today, they expect, "very bad" (synonyms for taste) !!!!!

          Here word for word I wanted to write the same)))
          I don’t understand at all, HOW if there are more than 300 bases in Europe, what are they missing? ????? Russia has ONE in all, and then, this is not a base in the full sense of the word, but a runway with some infrastructure, and it’s enough to complete its tasks ?? !!))

      In Iraq and with the Americans it is bad and without them it is bad. In fact - they destroyed the state. How would they leave Afghanistan, leave hundreds of their military bases there, and so what?

        Sibirbalt! 13.26. In Iraq, without the elves was not bad at all. We even concluded mutually beneficial contracts with them. And now with whom to conclude? Of course there are some crumbs. But as with the outskirts, we too got into trouble economically. Scorched earth tactics remained. Although already at a modern level. Why would they hold significant forces in Afghanistan if the country is in ruins? Who can ruins threaten economically?

    Well, nonsense. let the Yankees in each village set up the base. all the same, it won’t help if the Yankees are afraid to stick their nose out of the base. We need to work like ours in Syria, but they don’t know how.

      Dmitry Potapov! 13.12/XNUMX. Why are torn? Systematically, leisurely pursuing their policies. Competitors eliminate possible countries and subordinate them to their economic interests. They like a boa constrictor, slowly, swallow their victims. Although these victims themselves are happy to climb into the jaws. For some reason, VO readers consider Western psychology to be humane. Man to man is comrade and brother! Consider helping a neighbor a normal occurrence. But their psychology is completely different. Drown your neighbor or he will drown you! Everything is done by them from this psychology. Look at the world with their eyes!

    The American military official said that the need to create a new military base is due to the fact that
    Assad will close the base in Raqqa in a month, therefore, yes ....... it is necessary to open a new one (Schaub total funding has not decreased) repeat

    What kind of army is this that lacks "only" one base to liberate the city? Lies, double games and standards, self-praise ... well, well. I hope to live up to the moment when the Yankees will play out.

    it is not profitable for the Americans to destroy the igil, therefore bases are needed and misses are erroneously planned for the Iraqi army. fool

    First they close the bases, then they open, but the result is not.
    It seems that they themselves do not know what they want ...

    “However, during the offensive of the Iraqi army, the aviation of the so-called“ American coalition ”once again“ missed ”and bombed the vanguard of the Iraqi Armed Forces. Then several dozen Iraqi servicemen were killed.

    I would like to think that the Iraqi leadership is smart enough to make a competent decision.
