Russian sources: Iraqi approach to Moscow because of pressure from Washington

MOSCOW, May 9, 2019 (AFP) - Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has plans to head for Russia as a "strong" international ally because of US pressure, Russian news agency RT reported on Thursday (May 9th, 2019).

"Iraq is living in a state of instability as a result of American pressure on it, especially with regard to the recent tension between Washington and Tehran, although it wants to distance itself from this tension and try not to be a party, but the recent visit of the US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo to Iraq proved that America wants Iraq to be part of any war between them and Iran.

America is sending more troops to the region to deter Iran

 arabic  09/05/2019 - 12:02 published in the Middle East 

America is sending more troops to the region to deter Iran

US officials have confirmed that the United States is preparing to send more troops to the Middle East in response to threats Washington said Iran is making on US military in the region.

The officials, who asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media, told the Associated Press on Thursday that Washington is expected to deploy two new bombers in the region, adding that consultations are underway on the possibility of re-deployment batteries Patriot missile systems In the Middle East .

A final decision on Patriot's deployment in the Middle East has yet to be made, and it may depend on whether the United States believes Iran is taking steps to reduce the alleged "risks".

Washington withdrew some Patriot batteries from Bahrain, Kuwait and Jordan last year and it is not clear whether these systems will return to the same countries if the resolution is adopted.

The news came days after Washington sent a group of warships led by the Abraham Lincoln carrier with a force of bombers to the region in response to the increased risk posed by Iran and its allies in the region to US military, according to the United States.

US officials have revealed to the media some details of the risks, including that the United States is concerned in particular about Tehran's deployment of missiles on small boats off its coast.

Europeans struggle to preserve Iran nuclear accord

 

The world powers struggling to preserve anuclear deal with Iran are facing an increasingly uphill battle, with a new deadline from Tehran on finding a solution to make up for last year’s unilateral US withdrawal from the accord and the increasing economic hardship that has put on mullah regime, AP reported.

After Iran notified Britain, Russia, China, the European Union, France and Germany of its intentions in a letter, Iranian President HassanRouhani said in a televised address Wednesday that the nations have 60 days to come up with a plan to shield his country from the sanctions imposed by US President Donald Trump after he pulled Washington out of the deal.

“If the five countries join negotiations and helpIran to reach its benefits in the field of oil and banking, Iran will return to its commitments according to the nuclear deal,” Rouhani said.

The 2015 deal, intended to keep Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, promised economic incentives in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear activities. Despite efforts so far by the others to keep the deal from collapsing, Iran’s economy has been struggling and its currency has plummeted in value after the re-imposition of US sanctions.

Later Wednesday, Trump issued an executive order announcing new sanctions targeting Iran’s steel, aluminum, copper and iron sectors, which provide foreign currency earnings for Tehran.

Many international corporations are reluctant to risk running afoul of Washington and have severed ties with Iran; a complicated barter-type system set up by the Europeans to allow their businesses to skirt direct financial transactions with Iran — and thus evade possible US sanctions — is not yet finalized.

Iran has continued abiding by the stipulations of the deal, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency, but had been expressing increasing frustration with the inability of the Europeans to provide economic relief, culminating with Wednesday’s threat to resume higher enrichment of uranium in 60 days unless new terms are negotiated.

Despite Rouhani’s threatening rhetoric and the now-ticking clock, Europeans were cautiously hoping the Iranian president was not on the verge of breaking the deal but instead seeking to show strength domestically as the economy slumps.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said his office had been in contact with all the others involved in the Iran deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, since the announcement to see what could be done to get Tehran to back down.

“Our opinion is and remains: We want to preserve the agreement, in particular to preventIran from coming into possession of nuclear weapons,” he told reporters. “We don’t need further escalation in the region.”

Similarly, French Defense Minister Florence Parly told BFMTV television that “nothing would be worse than Iran leaving this deal.”

“We absolutely want to keep this agreement alive,” Parly said.

At a meeting with US Secretary of State MikePompeo in London, British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt called Iran’s threat “unwelcome” and urged it not to take “further escalatory steps,” while emphasizing Britain was not ready to give up on the JCPOA.

“For as long as Iran keeps its commitments then so, too, will the United Kingdom,” he said.

Hunt said Britain and the US agreed on the need to confront the threat from Iran, but “it’s no secret we have a different approach on how best to achieve that.”

Pompeo was restrained in his own assessment of the letter that Iran sent to the JCPOA group outlining its intentions.

“I think it was intentionally ambiguous,” he said. “We’ll have to wait to see what Iran’s actions actually are. They have made have made a number of statements about actions they have threatened to do in order to get the world to jump.”

In his television address, Rouhani also tried a gambit designed to hit a sore spot for Europe, over the issue of migration and drug-smuggling.

Noting that Iran now cooperates on issues like controlling immigration and targeting Afghan opium and hashish traffickers, he said: “You are obliged... for your own security, for protecting your youths against drugs as well as controlling influx of immigrants.”

There was no immediate response from officials in Europe, which has seen an influx of refugees and migrants from the Middle East in recent years.

China, a key Iranian ally and trading partner, suggested that Washington’s recent decision to deploy an aircraft carrier group and a bomber wing to the Middle East to confront unspecified threats from Tehran had added fuel to the fire.

“We regret that the US has further aggravated the tension on the Iranian nuclear issue,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said. “We call on all parties concerned to exercise restraint, strengthen dialogue and avoid escalating tensions.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov went a step further, saying the situation surrounding the fate of the 2015 nuclear accord has been complicated by “irresponsible behavior” from Washington.

After meeting in Moscow with his Iranian counterpart Mohammed Javad Zarif, Lavrov reaffirmed Russia’s support system" rel="">support for the deal and blamed the US for undermining it.

“The US is to blame for the situation and it makes it difficult for both Iran to fulfill its obligations and... for the general state of the nuclear non-proliferation regime,” Lavrov said.

Zarif insisted that Iran’s decision to partially withdraw from certain provisions did not violate the agreement, and asserted it was provoked byUS actions toward Iran.

He also said Iran will uphold its obligations if European signatories to the deal uphold theirs.

 

The old guard is flailing around on the ground like the dying fish it is.

Iraqi party: former Prime Minister and Sulaimani are preparing to drop Abdul Mahdi hit

 

 

Iraq's Umma Party leader Mithal al-Alusi said on Tuesday there was a project led by a former prime minister of Iraq and the commander of the Quds Force in Iran's Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, to topple the current government headed by Adel Abdul Mahdi.

"The deep state of the deep state foundations and the deep interests of the state, the financial corruption of millions of dollars and influence lies with Adel Abdul Mahdi, as much as possible, and aware that the latter can not be changed through the House of Representatives," Alusi said.

He said that "these people now want a US or Israeli strike in Iraq, after which there is a security breach and then work on mass mobilization, religious and militia, and here the government falls."

"This project is led by one of the former prime ministers, with the blessing and support system" rel="">support of the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani," the senior Iraqi politician said.

US officials have said earlier that their country's intelligence had identified "multiple and serious threats" from Iran and its forces primarily against US forces in Iraq, and said there were also concerns about US forces in Syria and neighboring seas.

Iraq Reduces Imports From Iran By 45 Percent

Iraq has substantially curtailed imports from Iran, according to an economic daily published in Tehran.

The report says part of the restriction on Iranian imports stem from general bans on a range of products, while part of it is due to targeted bans on Iranian imports.

The report did not specify what kind of products Iraq has banned, but previously Baghdad had stopped Iranian cement imports. Difficulty in payment system caused by U.S. sanctions could be a major reason for the reduction.

Latest statistics from Iran’s customs show that non-oil exports to Iraq during March 21-April 20 period was $389 million, while in the previous 30-day period the value of Iranian exports to Iraq stood at $722 million.

In the previous Iranian year (March 21, 2018-March 20, 2019), Iran exported close to $9 billion of products to Iraq, which was 37 percent higher than in the previous year.

Iraq is the second largest market for Iranian exports, with China occupying the top spot. Almost one quarter of Iran’s exports go to Iraq.

Before the withdrawal of the United States from the 2015 nuclear agreement, Iran and Iraq had targeted to have $20 billion annual trade.

Iranian officials have been raising the prospects of more trade with Iraq in recent months, to counter the impact of U.S. sanctions on their economy.

Apart from non-oil, natural and manufactured products, Iran sells electricity and natural gas to Iraq. During the last Iranian fiscal year that trade reached $3 billion.

Well, I guess China will learn to deal with another 15% tarrifs placed on it’s goods. Maybe it’s time to shift our global companies to another 3rd world country.  How does made in Vietnam or India sound.  

 

BTW, that is a dumb statement by China.  The ME is already unstable in part thanks to Iran. Most of the conflicts are a direct result of Iran’s militias, and weapons.  700 rockets fired into Israel last weekend, probably supplied to Hamas by Iran.

How about Iraq strengthen their status with the USA who has liberated their sorry a**

twice, sacrificed thousands of soldiers both killed and maimed in those liberation’s.  How about paying the USA back the Trillions we have spent on that Shite hole.

 

They are so afraid of making Iran mad, they better worry about ticking us off.  It wouldn’t take too much to turn that landmass into a gas station that we would own.

US Carrier Arrives at Red Sea After Passing Suez Canal
 

ERBIL - The Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) has reportedly arrived at the Red Sea after it passed through Egypt's Suez Canal on Thursday, the Suez Canal Authority has confirmed.

The US has ordered the deployment of its aircraft carrier strike group and bomber to the Middle East to send an "unmistakable" message to warn Iran of retaliatory actions if Tehran attacks its interests or allies in the region.

"ABECSG has been conducting operations in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations for several weeks, but expedited their transit to U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) to protect U.S. forces and interests in the region," the US Navy said in a statement, as quoted by USNI News.

"ABECSG will be positioned by CENTCOM where it will best be able to protect U.S. forces and interests in the region and to deter any aggression."

Earlier on Wednesday, a pro-Iranian Hashd al-Shaabi commander in the Iraqi province of Diyala, Jabar al-Ma'mouri, threatened to declare war against the US forces if Washington targets Iran.

The Hashd al-Shaabi commander, according to Iran International, said that the Shi'ite militias will respond if the US forces attack Iran, warning that "the Middle East is approaching a dangerous tsunami that is monitored by the Zionist regime."

US President Donald Trump urged the Iranian leadership to sit down and dialogue with him about abandoning Tehran 's nuclear program, pointing out not to be ruled out military confrontation given the tension between the two countries. 
"We have information that you do not want to know," Trump told a news conference at the White House. "There are serious threats, and we have to provide a tremendous amount of security for this country and many other places." 
Asked if there was a risk of a military confrontation with the US military in the region, Trump said: "I imagine you can always say that, is not that right? I do not want to say no, but I hope it does not happen. The world is loaded with weapons and we do not want to do anything. "
"What they need to do is contact me and sit down, we can reach a fair agreement, all we want from them is not to have nuclear weapons, and this is not a big demand ... and we will help them get back to a better position." 
"If they do, we will be open to talk to them," he said. 
On more than one occasion, the US president expressed his willingness to meet the Iranian leaders, but to no avail, and renewed that appeal in his conversation with reporters.

How about Iraq strengthen their status with the USA who has liberated their sorry a**

twice, sacrificed thousands of soldiers both killed and maimed in those liberation’s.  How about paying the USA back the Trillions we have spent on that Shite hole.

 

They are so afraid of making Iran mad, they better worry about ticking us off.  It wouldn’t take too much to turn that landmass into a gas station that we would own. 

Rename it Texaco!!!

Sooooo on target!!! 👍🇺🇸

The US commander in charge of the US Navy in the Middle East said today that US intelligence indicating a threat from Iran would not prevent him from sending an aircraft carrier across the Strait of Hormuz if needed. 

Admiral Jim Malloy, commander of the fifth US-based Bahrain-based fleet, did not say whether he would send the offensive crew to Abraham Lincoln's strategic waterway off Iran, where five of the world's oil is spent. 

The group, which was accelerated in the Middle East by the administration of President Donald Trump to warn Iran, moved through the Suez Canal to the Red Sea on Thursday and is now under the leadership of Malawi. 

"If I need to make it pass from the strait, I will do it ... I am not restricted in any way, and I have no difficulty with any," Malloy said in an interview with Reuters.

A form of operation anywhere in the Middle East. "

I don't know about ya'll, but I feel we are in the midst of an incredible time.  Iraq must make some very important choices right now.  The Globalist Cabal appears to be falling and Iraq. because of debt has been much aligned with them. We see this in the articles describing Solar Power IMF BS.. when natural gas is free for them!   Iraq, is now going to Russia and China for support when  (OH Wow The US is not going to sway on these sanctions.)  Iraq has been able to skate for 17 years pulling the pour me BS and now the rubber is meeting the pavement.  There is no way way Iraq can provide the needed elctricity by summer.   Billion have been squandered in corruption.  I have a feeling there is going to be BLOOD on the Streets.

      Iraq aims to ease US-Iran tensions
      Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said Baghdad will send teams to Tehran and Washington to calm tensions. (File/AFP) Updated 22 May 2019 ARAB NEWS May 21, 201915:48     Follow @arabnews Iraqi delegations to visit both countries “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war,” says PM       BAGHDAD: Iraq will send delegations to Tehran and Washington over the next few days in an attempt to ease tensions in the region, Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.
      “Iraq has conducted high-level contacts (between the US and Iran), and its vision is very close to the European vision to resolve the crisis in the region,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war. So we will send delegations to Washington and Tehran.”
      Tensions started to rise between the two countries after the US withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, in May 2018.
      Since then, the US has imposed economic sanctions on Iran. US President Donald Trump warned on Monday that Iran would be met with “great force” if it attacked American interests in the Middle East.
      Iraq has been a battleground for the US and Iran since 2003. Both countries enjoy significant influence in the region.
      Iraqi leaders believe that their country could become the first confrontation zone if war breaks out between the two nations.
      “Iraq is in the stage of transferring messages between Washington and Tehran as we try to defuse the crisis between the two sides,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “It is our responsibility to defend Iraq and its people, and secure them from the threat of war.”
      During a visit to Baghdad earlier this month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Abdul Mahdi that targeting any US interests in Iraq will be dealt with militarily.
      A Katyusha rocket was fired on Sunday into Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses government offices and embassies, including the US Embassy.
      The rocket fire came days after the US evacuated staff from Iraq, citing threats from Iran. It was not clear who was behind the attack, which caused no casualties.
      The attack “embarrassed” the Iraqi government, which has pledged to secure diplomatic missions and protect US interests, senior Iraqi officials told Arab News.
      The Iraqi president, prime minister and speaker of Parliament, as well as heads of political blocs and commanders of armed factions linked to Iran, have held meetings over the past few days.
      “We’re working together to invest our relations with the two parties (the US and Iran) in order to ease the tension and find peaceful solutions,” Ahmad Al-Assadi, head of an Iraqi parliamentary bloc, told Arab News.
      “The outbreak of war between America and Iran will cause great damage to the entire region. Iraq will be the biggest loser because it’s in the heart of the storm.”
      During the meetings, political leaders and representatives of armed factions linked to Iran agreed on a 12-point document that aims “to keep Iraq away from the ongoing struggle between the US and Iran by all possible means.” Al-Assadi said the Iraqi Parliament will vote on the approved document.
      Dozens of paramilitary troops associated with Iran operate in Iraq, and present the biggest challenge for the Iraqi government and political leaders.
      “We agreed that no armed faction is allowed to ignite the war inside Iraq for any reason, and whoever violates this deal will be considered our enemy,” one of the leaders linked to Iran, who participated in the meetings, told Arab News.
      “We don’t want to be blamed for this war, but the situation may change if the US insists on starting this war inside Iraq.”
