Military parade in Baghdad

13
Despite the wave of terrorist attacks that swept Baghdad, the Iraqi authorities decided to hold a military parade in honor of the 58 anniversary of the proclamation of the republic in Iraq. Then - in the 1958 year - Iraq first, together with Jordan, formed the so-called Arab Federation, and on July 14 of the same year, as a result of a conspiracy by high-ranking military, virtually the entire political elite of the country led by 23-year-old King Faisal II was eliminated. The organizers of the coup announced the transition of Iraq to the republican form of government. Abdelkerim Kasem (Kasim), who at that time was the commander of one of the brigades of the Iraqi army, became the head of the “republican” regime.

All representatives of the highest authorities, including Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi, Defense Minister Haider Al-Yubeidi, decided to attend the military parade in the center of the Iraqi capital. According to the Iraqi press, the leaders of the Shiite militia "Hashdi Shabi" were noticed on the tribune for the guests of honor.

In the course of the military parade, not only the Iraqi Armed Forces, but also the weapons units of the American army were used. So, several American F-16 fighters and attack helicopters flew over Baghdad.

During his speech, the Iraqi Prime Minister, not without pathos, stated that “weaponpresented at the parade - only a small part of the arsenal, which will fall on the militants DAISH.



Some samples of weapons demonstrated in Baghdad may well cause special attention:

    The fighter in the top photo was in a hurry ... he brushed his boots and teeth at the same time, apparently
    And the shaitan pipe in the bottom photo is also super. It shoots apparently spent gas cylinders with nitrate and aluminum powder ...

        Did not guess, this is an MLRS of Iranian production. It is charged with a missile, and the head is even larger in diameter.

    A military parade might finally raise the morale of the army.

    their "successes" are better not because they are better at war than Assad. And because of the fact that they are supported by the Americans. And in Syria, the same Americans support ISIS, JABHAD AN NUSRA, AHRAR ASH SHAM, and so on against Assad, where directly, where through molded allies - Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey (also a NATO member)
    For the Americans and the West in general do not need peace there. We need oil and a bunch of not very large (preferably) groups ... well, Assad’s neck to turn off, the only more or less independent and large politician in that region.
    And everything will be in chocolate. The US military-industrial complex is working hard and army warehouses are being freed from junk ... and oil is flowing in the right direction and cheaply. You can’t imagine a better one))
