Iraq Wont Let US Strike Iran From Its Territory

Published time: 26 Jun, 2019 03:33

Baghdad will not allow Washington to use its military bases to launch an attack on Iran, the country's president stressed, thrashing Donald Trump's warmongering policies towards the Islamic Republic.

“We do not want our territory to be a staging post for any hostile action against any of our neighbors, including Iran,” Iraq's President Barham Salih told CNN, noting that there is no agreement between Baghdad and Washington that could make Donald Trump think he can use it as such.

In February, the US President said that around 5,000 soldiers should remain in Iraq to keep a close “watch” on Iran. While at the time Trump said he would not use Iraq as a springboard to strike Iran, the growing US vendetta against the Islamic Republic could see all American assets in the region drawn into the confrontation, should large-scale conflict erupt.

In the meantime, Salih recalled the bitter experience of the American invasion of his country, reminding Washington that it is quick to start a war without thinking of potential consequences.

It's easy to start a war, but very, very difficult to end a war.

The US has ~800 - or maybe ~900 military bases around the world but RUSSIA, KOREA and IRAN are "aggressive"

LOL

war rhetoric is wearing thin, maybe

Or maybe not. I'm so glad you were ripped off by the MIC

The MIC has bled the once great United States of Usury dry. Yet some keep cheering.

9. 800 bases is ron paultard bullshit and Jimmy Dore (the fucktard) lies

the hysterical morons count a Caracas warehouse rented by the US Navy but not used as a base

They count bases in Germany closed in the 90's

They count a target shack on an Italian army rifle range as a US base

The count a Master Sergeant and Major military attaches at an Embassy as stationed troops overseas


But hey run with it hysterically like you always do
