Acting Pentagon chief reaches Iraq to discuss US troops presence

Patrick Shanahan is on a surprise visit to Baghdad for talks on future of troops following the withdrawal from Syria.

Patrick Shanahan, the acting US defence secretary, has arrived in Baghdad on an unannounced visit for talks on the continued United States troops presence in Iraq

"We are in Iraq at the invitation of the government and our interests are to build Iraqi security capability," Shanahan told reporters travelling with him on his first trip to Iraq on Tuesday.

"I want to hear first-hand from them about concerns, the political dynamics that they are facing and then based on that we will obviously factor that into our planning."

The acting Pentagon chief is due to meet Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi and will also discuss the withdrawal of US troops from Syria with US commanders.

US President Donald Trump caused anger in Baghdad this month when he said he wanted to keep troops at the Ayn al-Asad airbase, northwest of Baghdad, to keep an eye on Iran "because Iran is a real problem".

That move would overstep the US-led coalition's stated mission in Iraq and Syria of defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS).

US mission in Iraq

Iraq is in a difficult position as tensions between its two biggest allies, the US and Iran, increase.

Trump's comments prompted almost universal criticism from Iraq's leaders, including Abdul Mahdi, and raised questions about the long-term presence of around 5,200 US troops in the country, 16 years after the US invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.

Iran-aligned politicians in Iraq's parliament used the uproar to reiterate their demand that the US mission in Iraq be restricted and the number of troops reduced.

A draft law that would set a timetable for a US troop withdrawal is now before the Iraqi parliament.  

It is backed by both of Iraq's most powerful political groupings, the nationalist alliance led by Shia Muslim leader Moqtada Sadr, and the pro-Iran movement of former anti-ISIL fighters.  

At a rare joint news conference on Monday, the two groupings demanded, at the very least, a "new agreement" setting tight conditions on any future foreign troop presence.

Those calls are likely to intensify as Washington carries out the full troop withdrawal from Syria unveiled in a shock announcement by Trump in December.    

The plan prompted the resignation of Shanahan's predecessor, Jim Mattis.

But with US-backed Kurdish-led fighters poised to overrun ISIL's last enclave in eastern Syria, perhaps as early as this week, the withdrawal, which other administration figures had managed to slow, is now likely to gather pace.

Asked whether US troops in Syria could be moved to Iraq, Shanahan said on Tuesday that he would be having conversations on these topics during his visit.

He was in Afghanistan on Monday, where he met with US troops and President Ashraf Ghani amid a US push for peace talks with the Taliban.

Trump has indicated he would like to get US troops out of Afghanistan after 18 years of war, but Shanahan said he has no orders for a troop withdrawal.

Ghabban: Iraq will not allow the American presence to continue under any formula

 

 

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Former Iraqi Interior Minister MP Mohammed Salem al-Ghabban said on Thursday (February 14th) that the Iraqi people would not allow the American presence to continue under any formula, saying that what the Americans were saying, either through Trump or other officials, Is a flagrant violation of Iraqi sovereignty.

"The statements expressed by the Americans, whether through Trump's statements or other officials, represent a flagrant violation of Iraqi sovereignty, because such statements, and in light of our rejection of any American presence in any way, constitute a dangerous escalation that jeopardizes Iraq's security and interests," al-Ghabban told Arab media. As well as to destabilize the whole region. "

"The Iraqi people will not allow the continuation of this presence under any formula as we reject the use of Iraqi territory as a base for aggression on neighboring countries."

"The Iraqi government and the commander-in-chief of the armed forces must take clear positions on such statements and not tolerate such an issue under any pretext or pretext because it would affect the course of future bilateral relations between Iraq and the United States," he said.

      Council decided the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers begin to discuss the draft rules of procedure of the General Secretariat, starting from next week, after the completion of pre-strategic expert contracted with the General Secretariat for this purpose.    {{Full Article Below & Link}}

      COUNTRYGAL:  WOW THIS IS FRIGGIN HUGE!!!!

      JugDawg1  No compression senorita. Is this saying that they are actually going to finalize the SFA for certain in the next few days? If so.................It is huge. I hope so because, if not, that's all I got.
      ~~~   COUNTRYGAL:   THIS ARTICLE IS THE MOTHER LOAD..THIS IS FINALLY GOING TO BE THE RULES OF PROCEDURES FOR THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS..

      AS POSE HAS SAID WE HAVE THEM FOR THE HOUSE OF REPS BUT NOT FOR THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS AND THIS IS ALSO A HUGE REASON WHY MALIKI WAS ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH ALOT...

      HE INTERPRETED THE CONSTITUTION HOW HE SAW FIT BECAUSE THE RULES WERE NEVER ESTABLISHED..

      THIS WAS A HUGE REASON WHY SADR HAD PULLED HIS MINISTERS OUT OF THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS BECAUSE THERE WERE NOT RULES TO CONTROL THE COM'S AND THEIR LEGAL PROCEDURES OF LAWS AND HOW THE VOTING  WAS TO TAKE PLACE IN THE COM'S.

      .FOR INSTANCE WHEN THEY DID THE 2014 BUDGET AND MADE A COMPLETE MESS OF IT, WITHOUT THE RULES OF PROCEDURES SAYING HOW MANY VOTES THEY WERE TO HAVE AND THAT IT HAD  BE A CONSENSUS VOTE,(MEANING AT LEAST ONE FROM EACH SECT HAD TO VOTE FOR IT , WELL HE JUST HAD HIS OWN GOONS VOTE FOR IT AND PASS IT UP TO THE HOUSE OF REPS..

      IF THESE RULES WERE IN PLACE LIKE THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO BE YEARS AND YEARS AGO THEN WE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD THE LEGAL MESS THAT WE HAVE NOW..

      SO THIS ARTICLE IS HUGE IN FINISHING THE CONSTITUTION AND ALSO THE GOVERNMENT BY LAWS THAT EACH DIVISION OF THE GOVERNMENT IS TO HAVE..

      I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW LONG POSE AND I HAVE WAITED TO SEE THIS..

      THEY ARE THINKING AND MOVING LIKE ITS POST MALIKI AND WE ARE WATCHING IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF US..

      NOW WHEN THIS NEW GOVT IS SEATED THEY WILL HAVE ALL THE RULES OF PROCEDURES THAT MAKE THEM FUNCTION LEGALLY AND CORRECTLY..

      THAT IS WHY THEY DID THE FEDERATION COUNCIL MUCH LIKE THE HOUSE OF REPS AS FAR AS RULES AND REGS..WOW WOW,  I JUST CANNOT GET OVER THIS ARTICLE..

      THANKS D2D FOR YOUR RESEARCH..YOU MADE MY MOTHERS DAY..AND CHECK OUT THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE A STRATEGIC EXPERT THAT IS HELPING THEM WITH THIS..

      I BELIEVE THAT IS USAID..WE ARE SEEING THE SFA BEGINNING TO TAKE SHAPE ..

      AND THEY ARE ALSO LOOKING AT THE NEXT 4 YEARS OF WHAT LAWS, ETC THAT THEY NEED TO BRING FORWARD TO THE HOUSE OF REPS.

      POSE:  Thanks CGal, great explanation! Also, as CGal mentioned, without rules of procedure, Maliki used Judge Mahmoud to pick and choose which part of the Constitution to use and which part of the CPA Orders to use.

      The problem has been is that Mahmoud has been around since before the Constitution, and he doesn't necessarily agree with all of it, so he defers back to law from pre-constitution days, and uses it to benefit he and Maliki.

      Without the rules of procedure, Maliki could do whatever he wanted in the Council, and could likely get Mahmoud support. Getting this set of rules says alot about life after Maliki.

      Another awesome piece in this article is its reference to the rules of procedure within the framework of the SFA.
