Washington will give Iraq a loan to acquire weapons

32
The United States will give Iraq a loan of $ 2,7 billion for the purchase of weapons in the framework of the program of providing military assistance to foreign governments, reports RIA News Post American Embassy in Baghdad.




On Wednesday, “US ambassador to Iraq, Stuart Jones, and country’s finance minister, Hoshyar Zebari, signed a declaration of intent,” the release said.

According to Jones, “this FMF lending facility will allow Iraqi security forces to defer payment for the purchase of ammunition and the maintenance of (fighter) F-16s and tanks M1A. "

It is noted that "the agreement will give Iraq the right to a period of delay in repaying the loan for a period of one year." The loan, which must be repaid over 8,5 years, will be spent on the purchase of new weapons.

“The Embassy (USA) is working closely with the Iraqi government to ensure that the current economic difficulties facing the country will not affect the campaign to destroy the Islamic State,” the report says.

It is also assumed that the loan mechanism will allow "to support the development of Iraq as a stable and independent US strategic partner."

        It is only interesting at what interest is a loan, something is poorly believed that Americans will give a loan without interest.

      Yes, I was also waiting for the shout "Akakzhezhma ?, they give it out to everyone, but they only promise it, and less and less.
      But it will not be so easy with Iraq either: the money, apparently, will remain in the States, and will be debited to offset the armament supplied. Iraq will have nothing to cut, and foreign debt will increase significantly.

      But no way. Iraq, at the very least, is extracting oil, so there will be some money for returns in the future, but what about Svidomo? request

      The most "strong army" in Europe begs itself, asking for weapons and equipment from one country, then from another. wassat .

    Horseback riding and help seemed to be provided, and the Iraqis would be forced to buy weapons from them.

    It is also assumed that the loan mechanism will allow "to support the development of Iraq as a stable and independent US strategic partner."

    I especially amused "to support the development of Iraq as stable and independent "It turned out to be some kind of black anecdote. It's as clear as day that the Americans need Iraq only as a territory and no more. And what they give on credit is only so that the government will stay in power and be controlled and obedient by the United States.

      Alas, it’s not only getting richer, but also crushing under itself like a skating rink.

    This has already passed, all in a closed loop.

    I wonder who after the IG will capture the Amer’s weapons in Iraq?

    it’s great to sponsor them and the Iraqi army is credited (given the state’s greed, I won’t be surprised that money will go to the ishil from credit interest) ... they also write off their old Iraq technology ... and only the states win in all this, since they get Iraqi oil legally)))

    It seems like we already went through the Second World War when the United States simultaneously delivered strategic goods to the Soviet Union and Germany.


    By the way, Germany’s deliveries from the United States went until the end of the war, for this several companies were created in Panama, Ecuador and a number of countries, the transport tonnage sailed under these flags and no one drowned them. In so.

    $ 2,7 billion. A concrete cut under the guise of something and that, elections, re-elections, and whoever, in particular, will get from these lards. "However, nothing new" as Dima Kiselev "used to say". This expression applies to all countries, including Russia.

    A mattress will give Iraq a loan for the purchase of mattress scrap?
    Only a Jewish business - selling money for money is more profitable.

    This is a natural bondage for Iraq, which for 8,5 years will have to buy only US weapons and ammunition! US Ambassador to Iraq Stuart Jones is a true "altruist" who cares for the welfare of Iraq and its army with disinterested concern! The states will "float" all their old stuff to Iraq!

    yeah - and support their arms manufacturers, their positions there (look how good we are - we give money, and even with a delay in returning it (take it, they will draw smile ), and if necessary, this loan is used as a means of pressure)

    ... do you know how Americans "help" the hungry?
    give money to buy food from amers, as a result, amers' producers are supported, local producers (if any) disappear by themselves (where can they withstand the "competition" of such a "market"). + Americans advertise their "charity" wherever possible ...

    The audience of the Military Review is serious, educated people. I would like to see the authors the same. But such turns of speech, especially in the headline, do not honor the publishers: "... a loan for the purchase of weapons."

    Yes, the strategic partner of the United States, but only Russian weapons should be purchased. Then you will have a chance to confront ISIS.
