Trump probably should have thought through the long term actions of withdrawal of Syria. Doesn’t take a genius see that letting a region to deal with their own problems will result with neighboring countries to work with each other. 

 

The whole petro dollar and “might makes it right” actions of the USA makes me question humanity sometimes. But hey, it’s the nature of things. Endlessly fascinating to watch.

The whole petro dollar and “might makes it right” actions of the USA makes me question humanity sometimes. But hey, it’s the nature of things. Endlessly fascinating to watch.

 

Maybe consider the following:

  • The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump did think through the long term action of withdrawal from Syria. The Kurdish forces in north and east Syria are the force to direct their own peacekeeping without overwhelming enemies in their area. The Untied States Of America can NOT be viewed as an occupier while ONLY supporting allies on previously agreed terms.
  • Syria is a Sovereign State with a regime not interested in peaceful relations with their neighbors or caring for all their citizens in a humane way. The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump provided assistance to a group within Syria aligned with exceptionally more peaceful practices with the available resources of their own area to the extent possible. Same thing here in that The Untied States Of America can NOT be viewed as an occupier while ONLY supporting allies on previously agreed terms.
  • Even a fool realizes that each Sovereign State is primarily responsible for peaceful and productive interactions with their neighbors to peacefully and ethically address any misconstruals and misperceptions. The United States Of America should never be involved in sand box players working out their own issues. With nefarious countries like Iran, however, interdiction is necessary to prevent extensive current and future loss of life such as what the Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, are fomenting in a significant number of countries in the Muddle East. The True The United States Of America Patriot President Donald J Trump has taken actions for the peaceable relations of Muddle Eastern Countries while directly confronting the Insanians, to INCLUDE the Insanian IRGC, funding and fomenting Corruption and Terrorism in the Muddle East to the detriment of The United States Of America allies.
  • The petro dollar has provided a consistent basis for the payments for crude oil purchased by another to prevent disparities in potentially volatile exchange rates where either the supplier or purchaser would be subject to currency volatility. There is likely no better useable and convenient way for world market exchanges than a single currency basis such as the USD.
  • For support of allies in whatever region, "might makes it right" is correct to extent the motives of the allies are ethically supportable. That is what makes allies, well, allies to be on a common basis of mutual benefit. The United States Of America military bases on allied soils enforces the commitment of The United States Of America to support The United States Of America allies.
  • No other country in the world has the economic and military might comparable to The United States Of America that has been used to provide ethical and peaceable benefits especially under the direction of The True The United States Of America President Donald J Trump. Many other peoples of other countries have benefited and are encouraged by the leadership of The True The United States Of America President Donald J Trump. Should The United States Of America be removed from the world stage economically and militarily, the entity or entities filling the vacuum will likely foment very oppressive practices including exceedingly destructive wars and infiltration of Sovereign States. Event a fool sees and agrees with THIS.
  • The United States Of America has had it's share of shameful practices in other countries via Rouge The United States Of America Entities The True The United States Of America President Donald J Trump is currently addressing and correcting. The battle is far from over while victory appears to be achievable for EVERYONE'S interest inside AND outside The United States Of America.
  • Unfortunately, the "dirty" "laundry" of The United States Of America AND OTHER Major World Powers IS being "exposed". A NECESSARY practice for Rule Of Law to be exercised for the benefit of We The People AND OTHER Peoples Of OTHER Countries. I certainly am NOT fascinated to WATCH ALL THIS while I am demanding the exposure of wrong doers from, ESPECIALLY, The United States Of America while OTHERS elsewhere and properly prosecuting the offenders with ALL due diligence so the wrong doing is TERMINATED so innocent people are not killed or abused.

Maybe consider AND reconfigure YOUR "reasoning", Ametad, so YOU can post appropriately.

 

Best Wishes!

US-led coalition says complying with new Iraq flight limits

 

The US-led coalition bombing jihadist targets inIraq said Friday it was complying with a recent order by the Iraqi prime minister to halt any flights without his explicit approval.

A statement from the coalition said it had "immediately complied with all directions received from our Iraqi partners as they implemented the Prime Minister's order". 

Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi on Thursday said he was cancelling "special approvals" for aircraft operating in Iraqi airspace, which since 2014 have included coalition aircraft bombing the ISIS group.

"The authorizations will come exclusively from the head of the armed forces," his office said.

The decision would apply to reconnaissance operations, fighter jets, helicopters and drones, and include "all Iraqi and non-Iraqi entities". It did not specifically mention flights operated by the coalition.  

Any aircraft flying without the proper approvals "will be considered hostile aircraft and will be immediately handled by our air defenses", according to Abd al-Mahdi's instructions.

The coalition said Friday that its senior leaders had met with Iraqi defence officials to implement the decision and insisted it was operating "in Iraq at the request, and under the protection, of the Government of Iraq". 

It came days after a mysterious explosion at an arms depot at the Saqr military camp south of Baghdad, which sent missiles stored there flying into neighboring areas, wounding 29 people. 

Abd al-Mahdi's ordered an investigation into the incident to be submitted within a week and said all military bases and arms depots were to be moved outside Iraqi cities.

Following the US-led invasion that overthrew Saddam Hussein in 2003, US troop numbers peaked at some 170,000 before a full withdrawal was completed in 2011.

Troops returned to Iraq in 2014 as part of an international coalition set up to fight the ISIS group after it swept through much of the north and west, and several thousand are still thought to be based in Iraq. 

The coalition was still carrying out rare air strikes against ISIS sleeper cells as of last month.

Poker Player if you moved to Canada due to the fact that Me. Trump became President of the United States that is your business/affairs. If you gave me a ruby while in Canada after you crossed the border then the shoe would fit. I have absolutely No problems with Canadians or Canada. As a matter of fact I love visiting that country......

With that being said, if you didnt 'Neg' me then there was no reference personally directed to you.

IRAQ TO THE FUTURE

The US military now has to ask the Iraqis for permission before giving close air support to troops in combat

 

 

Jeff Schogol 

August 19, 2019 at 04:57 PM NEWS

U.S. Army Cpt. Katrina Hopkins and Chief Warrant Officer 2 James Rogers, assigned to Task Force Warhorse, pilot a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter during a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) operation at Camp Taji, Iraq, Dec. 18, 2018. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Javion Siders)

U.S. forces must now ask the Iraqi military for permission to fly in Iraqi airspace before coming to the aid of U.S. troops under fire, a top military spokesman said.

However, the mandatory approval process is not expected to slow down the time it takes the U.S. military to launch close air support and casualty evacuation missions for troops in the middle of a fight, said Army Col. James Rawlinson, a spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

"In emergency circumstances, CJTF-OIR and the government of Iraq have a process to ensure there would be no delays in transporting injured service members to medical facilities or to provide force protection for any coalition troops," Rawlinson told Task & Purpose on Monday. "For more routine flights, the Government of Iraq has visibility over all CJTF-OIR aviation missions, and we comply strictly with restricted airspace."

Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi reportedly ordered the new restrictions for Iraqi airspace following a recent explosion at an ammunition depot in Baghdad amid rumors that Israel had launched an airstrike against Iranian-backed militia fighters.

An Iraqi government spokesman could not be reached for comment on Monday.

The U.S.-led coalition announced on Friday that it had, "Immediately complied with all directions received from our Iraqi partners as they implemented the prime minister's order."

Currently, about 5,200 U.S. troops are serving in Iraq as part of the mission against ISIS, which has become an insurgency.

"As guests within Iraq's sovereign borders, CJTF-OIR complies with all Iraqi laws and direction from the Government of Iraq," the coalition's Friday statement says.

Despite the decision of Abdul-Mahdi .. US fighters dominate the atmosphere of Iraq

Political | 03:33 - 20/08/2019

BAGHDAD - 
A few days after the Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces, Adel Abdul Mahdi, announced the cancellation of foreign flight licenses in Iraqi airspace and restricted them with the prior approval of him or his representative in the government, an Iraqi official said US fighter jets are the most Presence in Iraqi airspace during the past seventy-two hours. 
Abdul-Mahdi took his decision to restrict air traffic following increasing indications that the bombing in a camp belonging to the Popular Mobilization near Amerli, and Muqsar al-Saqr, south of Baghdad, resulted from a raid by an aircraft likely to be "Israeli."
The Prime Minister announced last Thursday, in a statement issued after a meeting of senior military and security leaders, a series of security decisions, the most prominent of which was the cancellation of all previous approvals for flights in Iraqi airspace, including foreign drones, as well as an investigation into the bombing. Falcon Camp. 
The statement considered that any flight in the airspace will be treated as hostile, unless it has a prior authorization to fly Iraqi airspace. 
A senior Iraqi military official in Baghdad said, "The program of the air umbrella of the coalition forces in Iraqi airspace has not yet changed the decision revealed by Abdul Mahdi, last Thursday, US fighter jets and aviation that provides Iraqis with air pictures and important information in the movements of Iraqi ground forces, especially between Latitude 34 and 36, continues at the same pace. " In reference to the areas of Nineveh and Anbar specifically north and west of Iraq.
The US military official said that "the US aviation is quicker in response to the requests of Iraqi military sectors to provide air insurance for its movements than Iraqi flights, and the possibility of covering the air continuously and high-resolution images to monitor the border with Syria in particular does not currently have Iraq." 
He revealed that "there is an understanding with the international coalition on the subject, through a joint coordination room through which the Iraqis are informed of US flights, or to any of the coalition countries against the terrorist Daesh," pointing out that "there are American promises to improve Iraq's air defense capabilities." We hope that these promises will be believed, as there is pressure to go to Moscow to buy air defense systems. "
