Washington threatened Baghdad with harsh measures before extending its exemption from sanctions on Iran: ending the work of the Ministry of Abdul-Mahdi and waving its declaration of a rogue government

 

Baghdad - Abdul-Latif al-Musawi

 

Sources said that the US extension of one month to the exemption granted to Iraq from the sanctions related to dealing with Iran, which Iraq relies on importing energy, came with an American message stipulating the end of the work of his resigned government, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, and vice versa that Iraq is subject to US sanctions and strict measures. 

The sources told (Al-Zaman) yesterday that (the American message boils down to changing the government of the voluntary absentee, and conversely, Washington will head towards the inclusion of Iraq in the US sanctions), explaining that the American measures are (transferring the file of killing and suppressing the demonstrators to the International Criminal Court. Armed leaders and factions) adding that the other measures are to stop military supportFreezing Iraqi money in American banks and issuing a resolution from the UN Security Council considering the government as rogue). The United States last extended 30 days for the exclusion period.

 The United States had decided last February to allow Iraq to continue importing gas and electricity from Iran, but the period of exemption has decreased from ninety and 120 days, to 45 days, and now to only thirty days until the end of April. "This extension will be the last granted to Iraq," said an official in the office of the President of the Republic, Barham Salih.

 For its part, the US State Department confirmed the extension of the exemption from sanctions and made it clear that it came to "meet the immediate energy needs of Iraq", but did not specify the deadline.

In turn, the US Treasury Department simultaneously announced the imposition of sanctions on Iranian economic interests in Iraq, including a committee to restore and expand Shi'a holy shrines. In a statement, Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin accused Iran of "giving priority to its terrorist agents at the expense of the basic needs of its people." Washington grants exceptions to Baghdad provided that Iraq takes measures to reduce its dependence on Iran, by rehabilitating electrical installations or by finding other suppliers. (Since November, Baghdad has not met any condition, and as a result the exception should have been canceled, but Granting an American deadline comes due to the current circumstances), referring to Adnan al-Zrafi's mandate to form a new government, which Washington does not want to embarrass by not extending, according to another Iraqi official, who made it clear that (the United States does not want to put al-Zorfi in a difficult position by not renewing the exemption).

In the event that the exception was not extended, Iraq would have had to stop importing gas and electricity from Tehran, or continue to deal with Tehran and face the possibility of US sanctions. The United States is also upset about the Iraqi slowdown in signing contracts with major American companies specialized in the energy sector, with the aim of accelerating the disengagement from Iran in this field. Iraq faces real challenges at various levels and on the economic side, which is threatened by an economic crisis due to low oil prices, which could lead to a loss of 65 percent of its oil revenues.

US report: The Pentagon ordered an escalation of operations in Iraq against Iran-backed


usa-11.jpg


3/27 2020 16:50:37

 

 
Shafaq News / The American New York Times reported that the Pentagon has ordered the military leaders to plan an escalation of the fighting in Iraq.

The newspaper reported in the report that the ministry issued directives last week to prepare a campaign to destroy an Iranian-backed militia that threatened more attacks against US forces.

The report added that the Supreme Commander of the United States in Iraq warned that such a campaign could be bloody, counter-productive and threaten war with Iran.

The commander, Lieutenant General Robert B. wrote. White, that the new military campaign will also require sending thousands of other US forces to Iraq and distract attention in the fight against ISIS, according to the newspaper.

The report indicated that some senior officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Robert C. O'Brien, the National Security Adviser, are pressing for a new aggressive action against Iran and its proxy forces, and see an opportunity to try to destroy Iran-backed militias with the latter preoccupied with the Corona pandemic crisis.

The report quoted US officials as saying Defense Secretary Mark Esber had authorized planning a new campaign inside Iraq - even as the US military downsized its anti-terrorist presence there - to provide Trump options to respond to an escalation of Iranian-backed militias in its attacks against US forces.

The report noted that during the Oval Office meeting on March 19, Trump did not make a decision on whether to authorize the new campaign in Iraq, but it allowed planning to continue, according to US officials.

US economic sanctions on Iraq looming ... What are Washington warning messages?


2020-03-28

Yassin Iraq: Baghdad

 

The United States of America announced today, Saturday, the extension of Iraq’s exemption from the sanctions imposed on Iran with the file of importing electricity, while clarifying the imposition of sanctions on 20 people, while an economist suggested imposing sanctions on Iraq through these recent American messages.

Washington is expanding to Iraq

"America announced today the inclusion of 20 personalities and entities who violate Iraqi sovereignty, and are using the Iraqi economy to transfer money to the Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard," said Morgan Ortagos, the State Department's official spokeswoman, in a statement.

The statement added, “These people are helping to provide the financial support that enables the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to transfer deadly aid to Iranian-backed groups, such as the Hezbollah Brigades, and the League of the Righteous, and engage in malicious actions and activities that undermine the efforts of the Iraqi government towards energy independence.” .

She pointed out that "the entities and personalities listed today are working for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in Iraq’s dependence on Iranian electricity imports, according to a waiver of sanctions issued by the United States, Iraq is allowed to enter into financial transactions related to the import of electricity from Iran, and the purpose of this waiver renewed by the United States Today is to meet the immediate energy needs of the Iraqi people. ”

She noted that "the inclusion of these personalities and entities today confirms that the United States will not tolerate the exploitation of the malicious Iranian parties for the transactions under which the sanctions are waived, and we will continue to focus on punishing those who exploit these concessions in favor of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard or other terrorist groups included." She added that "Iraq is rich in natural resources and has the ability to reduce its dependence on Iranian energy, for the sake of Iraq’s security and the welfare of its people."

"The United States is working regularly with the Iraqi government on energy security, and we support measures that reduce Iraqi energy dependence on Iran, and we look forward to a speedy solution to the process of forming the Iraqi government and working with a government committed to achieving the security that the Iraqi people deserve," she added.

 

Possible penalties

Today, Saturday, the economic expert, Nabil Al-Marsoumi, said that there is a possibility for Iraq to include US sanctions, and the importance and severity of US messages should not be underestimated, which included sometimes suggestions and clear threats at other times that US sanctions could be imposed on Iraq because of its close relationship with Iran, and one of these messages is a reduction The period of exceptions granted to Iraq is to import Iranian electricity and gas to only one month.

And decree said in an interview for the platform, "Iraq Iraq", although this possibility seems weak now but it is worthy of attention and precaution, and if the United States decided to impose economic sanctions on Iraq, it will focus on two directions first, it became possible to impose a ban on Iraqi oil exports Which reaches with Kurdistan to 4 million barrels per day in light of the current conditions in the global oil market and a large surplus in the oil supply that may reach 10 million barrels per day, and the second is the financial aspect that may extend to freezing Iraqi funds abroad and controlling the flow of the American dollar movement From The American Federal Bank to Iraq, and in both cases the effects will be catastrophic for the Iraqi society and economy, which is currently suffering from two worsening crises, one of which is economic and the other is healthy.

Iraqi targets struck

The New York Times said that the Pentagon issued a directive last week to prepare for a military campaign in Iraq aimed at destroying a Iran-backed militia after it threatened to launch strikes against American forces, the newspaper reported.

The newspaper quoted the commander of US forces in Iraq , General Robert White, as warning that such a move could be bloody and cause war with Iran.

Withdrawal or preparing for a coup ... What is behind the evacuation of American bases in Iraq?

 

- 21 Hours Ago
 
%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%86%D8%B3%D8%AD%D8%


 

American forces withdrew Thursday morning from the Qayyarah base south of Mosul and handed them over to Iraqi forces, days after they withdrew from the Qaim base in conjunction with the withdrawal of the Czech and French soldiers who are part of the international coalition forces from Iraq.

This withdrawal coincides with the escalation of the frequent targets of American bases in various governorates, in addition to targeting the Green Zone in Baghdad, which includes the American embassy.

Fragile bases
Security expert Hisham Al-Hashimi indicates that the American forces started withdrawing from the fragile, insecure camps that do not include fortified shelters and not the bases, which are the Qaim camps (three hundred American soldiers) and the Qayyara camp, and they will withdraw from the K-One and Bisma camp.

Hashemi denied to Al-Jazeera Net what was reported about the withdrawal of the American forces from Habbaniyah base in Anbar Province, pointing out that the withdrawal was for foot and joint patrols inside the American section of the base to protect the soldiers from the threat of the Corona virus.

Al-Hashemi attributed the withdrawal of the American forces to Ain al-Assad base and other large bases in order to secure these forces in bases protected by Patriot air defense batteries, especially since these withdrawals came two weeks after stopping the training of the international coalition of ethnic forces

He believes that any targeting from the factions will lead to violent American responses, which will enter Iraq into major problems, especially in the case of targeting the attacking sites, as these batteries are self-working.

And on the possibility that these steps would be satisfactory to some of the Shiite forces, the head of the Center for Political Thinking, Ihsan al-Shammari, told Al-Jazeera Net that the American withdrawal has absolutely nothing to do with political affairs.

Al-Shammari pointed out that this withdrawal is just a repositioning with the identification of new tasks for American forces, warning that the United States rejected the decision of the Iraqi parliament, and therefore, it is illogical to try to calm with those who oppose its existence.

Coup reports 
and 
what is going on about the possibility of Washington supporting a military coup in Baghdad and its correlation with the withdrawal from military fragile bases, Al-Shammari explained to Al-Jureizah Net that there are two tracks that can happen with American support in Iraq without changing the political system. The first is that Washington supports an internal move in Baghdad to support A new political equation against another close to Iran, and the second is substantial American support for the upcoming political equation, which means that the new government may seek American support to control security in Baghdad.

Many consequences will be left by the American withdrawal, according to many analysts, as political researcher Ghanem Al-Abed asserts in his interview with Al-Jazeera Net that this step will leave a security void, stressing that the most dangerous areas are those that are located in the urban area southwest of Mosul on the Iraqi-Syrian border, which is a starting point Attacks by Islamic State fighters.

The risk, according to Al-Abed, lies in the fact that American forces will not have a presence in this area that extends to both Anbar and Salah al-Din in addition to Mosul and its link with the Syrian depth, and this may exacerbate the attacks of the organization. Al-Abed fears that there will be a clash between the IS fighters and the factions in order to target more American forces.

Expediting the decision
Regarding the withdrawal of the Czech and French forces, journalist Saman Noah believes that the fears of the Corona virus and its consequences, the frequent targeting of American bases and the demand of the Iraqi parliament for the withdrawal of foreign forces, all this precipitated this decision.

He pointed out that the American forces only re-positioned without complete withdrawal while stopping the training of Iraqi forces and maintaining effective forces in specific and fortified areas only, indicating that the situation after the Corona virus will not return as it was, as the withdrawing coalition countries will not return to Iraq due to the possibility of reducing their budgets Military and expenses.

Noah believes that the repositioning of American forces in Iraq will not affect its effectiveness, as it confirms that Washington is working on a long-term strategic presence in Iraq, as well as that the reduction of forces comes within the American plan to reduce the number of its forces around the world.

More Iraqi Companies Sanctioned by US

 

Office-of-Foreign-Assets-Control-OFAC.pn

 

28th March, 2020

 

US Treasury Designates Vast Network of IRGC-QF Officials and Front Companies in Iraq, Iran

 

The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has designated 20 Iran- and Iraq-based front companies, senior officials, and business associates that provide support to or act for or on behalf of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF) in addition to transferring lethal aid to Iranian-backed terrorist militias in Iraq such as Kata'ib Hizballah (KH) and Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq (AAH).

Among other malign activities, these entities and individuals perpetrated or supported: smuggling through the Iraqi port of Umm Qasr; money laundering through Iraqi front companies; selling Iranian oil to the Syrian regime; smuggling weapons to Iraq and Yemen; promoting propaganda efforts in Iraq on behalf of the IRGC-QF and its terrorist militias; intimidating Iraqi politicians; and using funds and public donations made to an ostensibly religious institution to supplement IRGC-QF budgets. The terrorist militias supported by the Iranian regime such as KH and AAH have continued to engage in attacks on U.S. and Coalition forces in Iraq.

"Iran employs a web of front companies to fund terrorist groups across the region, siphoning resources away from the Iranian people and prioritizing terrorist proxies over the basic needs of its people," said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. "The United States maintains broad exceptions and authorizations for humanitarian aid including agriculture commodities, food, medicine, and medical devices to help the people of Iran combat the coronavirus."

Today's designations were taken pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, as amended, which targets terrorists and those providing support to or acting for or on behalf of designated terrorists or supporting acts of terrorism.

RECONSTRUCTION ORGANIZATION OF THE HOLY SHRINES IN IRAQ

The Reconstruction Organization of the Holy Shrines in Iraq (ROHSI) is an IRGC-QF-controlled organization based in Iran and Iraq whose leadership was appointed by the late IRGC-QF Commander Qassem Soleimani. Though ostensibly a religious institution, ROHSI has transferred millions of dollars to the Iraq-based Bahjat al Kawthar Company for Construction and Trading Ltd, also known as Kosar Company, another Iraq-based entity under the IRGC-QF's control. Kosar Company has served as a base for Iranian intelligence activities in Iraq, including the shipment of weapons and ammunition to Iranian-backed terrorist militia groups.

Additionally, Kosar Company has received millions of dollars in transfers from the Central Bank of Iran, which was designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 in September 2019 for its financial support of the IRGC-QF and Lebanese Hezballah. Both the IRGC-QF and Hizballah have been designated by the U.S. Department of State as Foreign Terrorist Organizations under section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

In addition, IRGC-QF officials have used ROHSI's funds to supplement IRGC-QF budgets, likely embezzling public donations intended for the construction and maintenance of Shiite shrines in Iraq.

ROHSI and Kosar Company are being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for being owned, controlled, or directed by, directly or indirectly, the IRGC-QF.

OFAC is also designating Mohammad Jalal Maab, the current head of ROHSI, who was personally appointed to the position by former IRGC-QF Commander Soleimani. Jalal Maab succeeded Hassan Pelarak, an IRGC-QF officer and co-owner of Kosar Company, who was selected by Soleimani to serve as his special assistant on an IRGC-QF-led committee focused on sanctions evasions activity. Pelarak also worked with IRGC-QF officials to transfer missiles, explosives, and small arms to Yemen, intensifying the Yemeni conflict and exacerbating one of the world's worst humanitarian catastrophes.

Mohammad Jalal Maab is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for being a leader or official of ROHSI. Hassan Pelarak is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, the IRGC-QF.

Alireza Fadakar, another co-owner of Kosar Company, has worked in Iraq on behalf of the IRGC-QF for several years and is an IRGC-QF commander in Najaf, Iraq. Muhammad al-Ghorayfi is an IRGC-QF affiliate and employee of Kosar Company who provides administrative support to Fadakar and has facilitated the travel of IRGC-QF officials between Iraq and Iran.

Alireza Fadakar is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, the IRGC-QF. Muhammad al-Ghorayfi is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, Alireza Fadakar.

Masoud Shoustaripousti, another co-owner of Kosar Company, has worked in Iraq on behalf of the IRGC-QF for several years and has laundered money for the group. Shoushtaripousti worked with Mashallah Bakhtiari, who used Kosar Company to launder money and worked with officials at the Baghdad-based branch of Iran's Bank Melli to deposit funds for the IRGC-QF in Iraq. OFAC designated Bank Melli in November 2018, pursuant to E.O. 13224, for acting as a conduit for payments to the IRGC-QF which also used Bank Melli to dispense funds to Iranian-backed terrorist groups in Iraq.

Masoud Shoustaripousti is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, the IRGC-QF. Mashallah Bakhtiari is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, the IRGC-QF.

AL KHAMAEL MARITIME SERVICES

Separately, OFAC is taking action against Al Khamael Maritime Services (AKMS), an Iraq-based company operating out of Umm Qasr port in which the IRGC-QF has a financial interest. The IRGC-QF leveraged Shiite militia group contacts to evade Iraqi government inspection protocol at Umm Qasr port and has charged foreign companies and vessels fees for services at its terminal at the port. AKMS also worked to sell Iranian-origin petroleum products in contravention of U.S. sanctions against the Iranian regime.

AKMS is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for being owned, controlled, or directed by, directly or indirectly, the IRGC-QF.

OFAC is also designating Hasan Saburinezhad, also known as Engineer Morteza, who is involved in the finances of AKMS. As a representative of AKMS, Saburinezhad worked to facilitate the entry of Iranian shipments into Iraqi ports for the benefit of the IRGC-QF. Saburinezhad is also involved in IRGC-QF financial and economic activities between Iran, Iraq, and Syria, including smuggling activities along the Syria/Iraq border. Saburinezhad also runs smuggling routes to help Iraqi terrorist group KH and the IRGC-QF smuggle goods into Iraq from Iran, and has assisted KH in funding the acquisition and transfer of goods out of Iran.

Saburinezhad is the Managing Director and a member of the board of directors of Mada'in Novin Traders (MNT), an Iran- and Iraq-based company associated with multiple IRGC-QF officials, including Vali Gholizadeh, who has worked with Saburinezhad for the benefit of both AKMS and MNT.

Hasan Saburinezhad is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, the IRGC-QF. Mada'in Novin Traders is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for being owned, controlled, or directed by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, Saburinezhad.

OFAC is also designating Mohammed Saeed Odhafa Al Behadili, the Managing Director of AKMS, and Ali Hussein Falih Al-Mansoori, also known as Seyyed Rezvan, the company's deputy managing director and head of its board of directors. Additionally, as of 2018, Al Behadili was focused on facilitating shipments and business transactions to circumvent U.S. sanctions against the Iranian regime. Al-Mansoori has worked with IRGC-QF officials on business issues related to AKMS.

Mohammed Saeed Odhafa Al Behadili is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, AKMS. Ali Hussein Falih Al-Mansoori is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for being a leader or official of AKMS.

In 2014, Musavifar transferred the equivalent of millions of dollars of foreign currency to senior IRGC-QF officials.

Musavifar is a part owner of Middle East Saman Chemical Company, an Iran-based company that maintained an account at Rashed Exchange, an Iran-based exchange house used to convert currency for the IRGC-QF that was designated in May 2018 for being owned or controlled by Mohammadreza Khedmati, an individual designated for support to the IRGC-QF.

28th March, 2020


The Pentagon spokesman, Colonel Sean Robertson, confirmed that the international coalition forces to fight ISIS will resume their operations and support for the Iraqi forces that have suspended them to face the threat of the outbreak of the Corona virus, as soon as conditions permit.

Follow Iraq:

 

Today, Saturday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani turned the Corona crisis, which is witnessing his country and the world, into a material to gloat against the United States and Europe in general, indicating that Tehran is ready to deal with the pandemic of the virus.

Rouhani said, in a speech broadcast on official television, that "Iran's health infrastructure is strong and ready to deal with any possible escalation of cases of coronavirus," expecting an increase in the number of infections.

He added, “We thank God that our country is not one of the countries that makes Corona patients in the courtyard of hospitals and on the sidewalks of the streets. In the morning, everyone who goes to the markets after ten o'clock faces empty shelves. ”

The Iranian president continued, "We thank God that the government pays 90% of the expenses of the injured, unlike many countries that are testing HIV infection for their citizens for 1300 to 1500 dollars."

The American plan to attack the Iranian-backed militias

 

- 3 Hours Ago

1. On March 16, the US Secretary of Defense issued an order to Major General White, commander of US forces in Iraq, to prepare a military plan to attack Iranian-backed Iraqi militias.

2. On March 17, General White expressed his dissatisfaction, because this requires a change in the goals of the presence of US forces, as well as the mobilization of thousands of additional soldiers.

3. What is happening reflects a discrepancy within the American administration between two teams, the first wants to escalate and exploit the circumstance of attacking American bases to strike the militias of Iran, headed by Foreign Minister Pompeo and National Security Adviser O'Brien. Defense Asper, Army Chief of Staff, General Mark Millie.

4. Nevertheless, Asper insisted on preparing the plan so that all options would be available to Trump if he decided to attack.

5. The newspaper referred to a meeting after the Hezbollah brigades hit the American bases, where the views of the two parties became clear and a limited strike was authorized on the warehouses of the Hezbollah brigades by the American President.

6. Some American officials fear that the escalation could undermine the agreement signed with the American government on the one hand and embarrass the Iraqi leaders (particularly the military) who will be placed in a position to choose between their American allies who are far from them and the Iranians (who though they are not comfortable with them) but by virtue of their proximity they are forced to deal with them. . These officials believe that Iraq should not be placed at the center of the US-Iranian conflict by developing a plan to destroy the Hezbollah Brigades in Iraq.

7. Although US intelligence recognized that they had intercepted mutual messages to attack American bases forcefully, on March 21 they decided a limited response to attack US bases.

8. Experts estimate that any major US attack would require a massive build-up of forces, in addition to the 5,000 US soldiers currently in Iraq. And that these will be used among the 70 thousand American soldiers present in the region, and 17,000 of them were sent in the period from last May. Bombers were also sent with the strategic B-52 as well as a number of Patriot missile batteries.

A clear comment is that there is an ongoing conflict within the American administration between the teams of the military escalation in Iraq and the opponents. In my opinion, although President Trump now stands with opponents of the escalation, and this is clear from the limited response to the attacks that American forces have been exposed to, the situation can change and develop in the following cases:

1. If attacks continue, especially violent, against American forces. I believe that the US military does not support this, and therefore they are trying to avoid any losses through the recent relocation of their forces.

2. Escalation will also take place if the US President realizes the criticalness of his electoral position, especially after Corona and the economic crisis.

3. If the Prime Minister is calculated on the Iranian side strongly, which is a clear challenge to the American administration.

4. So we must be very careful and not take any measures that enhance the views of hardliners in the American administration.

In a decisive step against the Corona virus, the US Food and Drug Administration announced its approval of a device that shows the results of the examination in just 15 minutes, which could accelerate efforts to combat the virus and isolate patients well before symptoms appear instead of isolating everyone.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued permission to use a new scanner to test the new Corona virus, which takes only 15 minutes, to show the result. Abbott, the maker of the device, announced the news Friday evening in a press release, saying it plans to start offering 50,000 tests per day, starting next week, according to The Hill.

The future of Iraq and the new Trump strategy

 

The future of Iraq and the new Trump strategy
 
 
Last updated: March 28, 2020 - 12:28 PM

Written by: Abdul-Jabbar Al-Jubouri

The political process, which was produced by the American occupation, has entered a dangerous turn, threatening to remove it from the political scene as a whole, after the power parties failed for 17 years to administer the country, handing Iraq over to Iran and its parties and militias, and the turning point that we see as dire for Iraq, is the outcome of data presented before The result was a wretched, failed, and corrupt policy of the parties that mortgaged their fate and the fate of Iraq with Iran’s hands, storming the Trump embassy and bombing it daily, expelling its cadres to Erbil, bombing Ein al-Assad’s base, other American bases, and the deaths of Americans, a great insult to the American administration and America, not going to Keep quiet Absolutely, today, and after all these provocative actions of the American administration, and after the elimination of the terrorist organization ISIS, and its derivatives of victory and the Levant in Syria, and among President Trump's strategy in his first speech, he pledged to cut the arms of Iran in the region, after the elimination of ISIS, and now the time has come Come, to do this and implement his strategy, which will guarantee him a mandate

And that (an event) will happen in Iraq in the short term, and from this evidence, the closure of the embassy, the diversion of its staff to Erbil, the closure of US bases, in places that are not important in order to avoid attacks by armed factions, and to give unjustified losses to them in American soldiers, such as a base (Qaim, Qayyarah, Taji, and Kiwen) (which are not bases but camps), and their redeployment in other places that are more fortified and immune, and the other is conducting military exercises with the Emirates off the Iranian coast for a city similar to Baghdad, and this is an important message for the rulers of Tehran and its militias.

Then nominate Adnan Al-Zrafi, who is counted on the American administration, and insist on passing it in Parliament, pressuring the Kurdish and Sunni parties to support him, and thwarting any personality nominated by Iran's parties in parliament, as well as issuing immediate sanctions on Iraqi and Iranian personalities and companies, and telling Iraq to stop agreeing to exclude sanctions from Iran To import energy and gas, and reduce them to one month only, and the most important and most dangerous of these data is to benefit from the drop in oil prices, to twenty dollars per barrel, meaning that America no longer needs Iraq’s oil, and that Iraq and Iran will declare bankruptcy, as a result of falling Saar, knowing that it is an essential source for the economy of the two countries

Moreover, Iraq will be treated by the Security Council, the United Nations, and the American administration, its treatment of Iran, the imposition of a harsh blockade and the freezing of Iraqi funds abroad, by the International Monetary Fund, with which Iraq is linked, and the prevention of dealing with Iraq by all countries, including the Arabs, in implementation of orders and decisions The United Nations and America, and Chapter Seven, all this evidence, which the Trump administration calls a new strategy, has resulted from the repercussions and repercussions of the Corona epidemic, which has delayed and hindered much of the implementation of the Trump strategy, in the Middle East, and its failure in Iraq, due to the repercussions of the war on ISIS, so we see That the transfer of the defrauding forces The international from Iraq has very serious repercussions for the future of Iraq, especially, and ISIS is lurking at the doors to break down soft targets, in which its presence is proven, to move to another more important, and we have seen operations, albeit limited, but warn of a rapid return, as soon as It provided him with logistical conditions, including the transfer of American and foreign forces, and a loss Iraq is the most important element with which ISIS faces, which is the air cover, without which ISIS would not have been defeated in Iraq and Syria, and this is a proven fact that no one can deny and jump from above, so the land after expelling the coalition forces, and the militias of Iran bullying, threatening to burn Iraq, and a blazing high heart It has become exposed, and the game has become short, between America and Iran on the Iraqi soil, and Iran, as we said, does not fight with its army, but with its arms, and here is the disease house in Iraq, and the sons of Iraq, who will go to sacrifice for the guide and his gang, so why should the Iraqi die for others, and burn his country from Yes, others, and others, use it for his religious cosmic project, and What the Iraqis accept, by making their land to settle international accounts, the victim Iraqi, this warn parties and forces, whose grip on power in Iraq, wisdom and logic, and the rejection of the American and Iranian wills and others, and accept the logic only Iraqi opinion,  

This requires statesmen and nationalist affiliated parties to loyal to Iran. So can the parties and powers of power reject the Iranian and American presence, close the borders with Iran, confine arms to the state, dissolve the armed factions affiliated with Iran, cancel Bremer's decisions, amend the constitution, and repeal the independent bodies that Formed by quotas, going to parliamentary elections, sponsored by the Security Council and the United Nations, the European Union and the Arab League, and the announcement of a national rescue government, from outside the parties, that is the only solution, which saves Iraq from an imminent war between America and Iran, on the soil of Iraq, under the pretext of the judiciary On the militia Iran comes to Iraq, ending Iranian influence in it, or igniting a hypothetical Shiite-Shiite war - if the mass of conquest, the rule of law, and honest and wise leaders insist on rejecting Adnan al-Zarfi, as a candidate for prime minister, which is the reason we believe will be the spark of that war, between the Shiite parties themselves, Especially all the others who insist on accepting al-Zarfi, against the building block and the state

This is what we see embodied, completely in the insistence of the Azab and its militias, on the daily threat to burn Iraq, the total expulsion of America from Iraq, the daily bombing of the American embassy without injuries (intimidation only), or the refusal of the (controversial) Adnan Al Zorfi, or the parliament’s decision to deport foreign forces from Iraq, while the Iranian generals are demobilizing and joking in the cliff of the rock and standing, Albukamal and others, the future of Iraq depends on President Trump's strategy and implementation, which will be a pioneer between two eras, the era of Iranian hegemony and the militias of Iran, and the era of dismantling Iraq from the Iranian restrictions, and handing over Iraq a national concern, away from The Iranian hegemony and domination, with the American administration ensuring its interests and the strategic geographic location of Iraq, which guarantees it hegemony not only over Iraq, but over the whole region, and this is the most important thing in the new strategy, which was lacking in America,

In a stage, it is preceded by ridding Iraq of Iranian control and expelling its parties and militias from it (according to the American vision that it is now working hard on), especially as America invests the Corona epidemic, Iran's economic weakness, the lack of its influence in Iraq, and the drop in oil prices under twenty dollars, The internal crisis, the internal frustration in Iran, the impact of American and international economic sanctions on it, and the world's investment in what Iran is doing, which sponsors terrorism as (Pompeo says), are fueled by its militias in the region and internationally classified (terrorist), including Hezbollah, the Houthis and the militias.

The United States: We will not allow Iran's militias to steal the capabilities of Iraq

 

The United States: We will not allow Iran

 Baghdad / Iraq News Network - The United States of America announced, on Saturday, the extension of Iraq’s exemption from the sanctions imposed on Iran on the file of importing electricity, while clarifying the imposition of sanctions on 20 people.

"America announced today the inclusion of 20 personalities and entities who violate Iraqi sovereignty, and are exploiting the Iraqi economy to transfer money to the Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard," said Morgan Ortagos, the State Department's official spokeswoman, in a statement. The statement added, “These people are helping to provide the financial support that enables the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to transfer deadly aid to Iranian-backed groups, such as the Hezbollah Brigades, and the League of the Righteous, and engage in malicious actions and activities that undermine the efforts of the Iraqi government towards energy independence.” .

She pointed out that "the entities and personalities listed today are working for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in Iraq’s dependence on Iranian electricity imports, according to a waiver of sanctions issued by the United States, Iraq is allowed to enter into financial transactions related to the import of electricity from Iran, and the purpose of this waiver renewed by the United States Today is to meet the immediate energy needs of the Iraqi people. ” 

She noted that "the inclusion of these personalities and entities today confirms that the United States will not tolerate the exploitation of the malicious Iranian parties for the transactions under which the sanctions are waived, and we will continue to focus on punishing those who exploit these concessions in favor of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard or other terrorist groups included." 

She added that "Iraq is rich in natural resources and has the ability to reduce its dependence on Iranian energy, for the sake of Iraq’s security and the welfare of its people."

"The United States is working regularly with the Iraqi government on energy security, and we support measures that reduce Iraqi energy dependence on Iran, and we look forward to a speedy solution to the process of forming the Iraqi government and working with a government committed to achieving the security that the Iraqi people deserve," she added. 

The Minister of Electricity, Louay al-Khatib, had set, on Saturday (15 February 2020), the deadline that Iraq needs to develop its capabilities and end dependence on Iranian gas. "I am sure that the United States understands the situation well and will not stop these concessions to settle the urgent public services in Iraq," al-Khatib said in a tweet on Twitter. He added: "We need a grace period of three years to develop our capabilities in the field of gas, capacity of infrastructure and national network, and regional linkage of energy security."

Iraqi militia attacks are getting bolder ... and Washington is considering its options

000_Nic6404123.jpg?itok=VTYdynXA


The United States is still considering the nature of the response to the repeated attacks by pro-Iranian militias on American interests in Iraq, according to officials who spoke to the Washington Post.

The American newspaper indicates that the Iranian-backed militias have become more aggressive in attacking American forces in Iraq, where missile attacks against military bases occur frequently and for the first time, in broad daylight.

Militia attacks on Americans in Iraq are becoming more audacious. The U.S. is wrestling with how to...

U.S. officials say they get reports almost every day about ‘imminent’ attacks on military and diplomatic targets.

US officials say they receive near-daily reports of "imminent" attacks planned against military or diplomatic facilities linked to the United States.

But the Washington Post report confirms that the administration of US President Donald Trump remains divided over the nature and timing of the response and the additional steps that must be taken to confront the militia without costly retaliation.

The newspaper quotes a US official as saying that this response "may eventually look at the amount of risks that the president can accept in Iraq before our presence there becomes a very big burden."

US officials blamed the deadly missile attacks earlier this month on the Taji camp north of Baghdad, in which American and British victims fell on the Kataeb Hezbollah militia, one of the main Iranian-backed militias.

Since then, at least four missile attacks have occurred targeting US military and diplomatic facilities, and US
officials believe that the killing or wounding of more forces is only a matter of time, according to the newspaper.

"The Hezbollah Brigades want revenge on the Americans for the killing of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis," said a US Defense Department official, on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case.

He adds that after the deadly missile attacks on the Taji camp, it is not clear whether "they felt that they had repaid the debt or that they had just begun. There are warnings and indications that the Hezbollah Brigades aspire to attack American forces ... and they always do so."

The newspaper quoted two people familiar with the story saying that on March 11, the US administration considered launching strikes against a wide list of targets, including sites linked to the IRGC in Iran and Syria, but it was quickly rejected because it was likely to lead to a further escalation.

The attack on the Taji base, north of Baghdad on March 11, killed two American soldiers and a British soldier, and Washington responded by bombing the headquarters of the Hezbollah Brigades in Karbala and Babil.

It adds that the US response can also depend on the nature and scale of future militia attacks and whether it is associated with casualties from US forces.

"Where is the red line? The main discussions are taking place in this regard," according to a US defense official.

Another official said that a new attack similar to the attack on Taji camp, which involved 57 rockets, was likely to provoke a more powerful American response than an attack using only two.

On March 14, the Taji base came under a new attack, with 33 Katyusha rockets "falling on Iraqi air defense units and near the international coalition mission," according to Iraqi officials.

Iraqi forces found seven platforms from which to launch rockets in the Abu Azam area near Taji, north of Baghdad, and found 24 other missiles ready to be fired.

The US-led coalition is looking, according to the newspaper, to the Iraqi government's measures to reduce militia violence, and has demanded the arrest and prosecution of individuals responsible for missile attacks.

A US government official says the attacks "have been going on for several months. We complain to the Iraqi government but are doing nothing ... as a government that ultimately needs to be able to demonstrate that it plans to take control of its territory."

However, international coalition officials indicated that some progress had been made in the investigations, and highlighted the Iraqi authorities' arrest of the garage owner, from whom Hezbollah's Kataeb militia missiles had been fired at Taji camp recently.

But a high-ranking Iraqi military official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter and described the US request as unrealistic.

"No judge will issue an arrest warrant for a senior militia member if he wants to survive," he said. 

"Let's be honest ... if the militias want to attack the bases, we cannot stop them."

The New York Times said on Friday that the Pentagon had ordered military leaders to plan an escalation in the military campaign in Iraq, by an executive order issued last week to prepare for a campaign to "destroy Iranian militias" that threaten to carry out new attacks against American soldiers.

But the newspaper pointed out that senior US leaders in Iraq have warned that such a campaign would be "bloody and could backfire and threaten to wage war with Iran."

America is preparing to deploy batteries and missile system in Iraq

29th March, 2020


The US Department of Defense (the Pentagon) has ordered its military commanders in Iraq to prepare for possible operations in response to the March 11th Taji attack, which killed one British and two American soldiers.

The "Pentagon" is expected to deploy new air defense equipment, including Patriot missile batteries, and the "C-RAMs" system, within the next two weeks. The New York Times pointed to secret military plans drawn up to counter the escalation of fighting in Iraq against. The orders came more than a week after the US-led coalition forces announced that they would redeploy hundreds of troops to various bases in Iraq.

Military analysts promised the attack on the Taji base, indicating that Iranian-backed militias had become more aggressive in attacking the United States and its forces in Iraq. Pentagon officials say that intelligence reports from Iraq almost daily indicate impending attacks planned by Iranian militias against military or diplomatic facilities linked to the United States. The "Hezbollah Brigades" posted videos claiming that it would target the United States with snipers and "RPGs".
