The American Defense Journal published a detailed report on Iraqi aspirations about the possibility of Iraq moving strategically to purchase huge quantities of Russian weapons, in compensation for the lack of American and European arms exports to which Iraq may be exposed, as a result of the missile attacks against the military bases of these countries. in Iraq.
The American session on armaments affairs held a number of meetings with advisers to international armament institutions, who agreed that Iraq has long-term plans to find new sources of arms supplies, and that its preference for Russian weapons stems from two important details. The first relates to the traditional Russian weapons systems that are still used in Iraq, like the Russian Pantsir air defense system, also has a group of MI24 attack helicopters, and the intended Russian weapons can be easily linked to these systems. Likewise, Russia's international political weight, particularly from the Middle East, and in terms of being a permanent member of the Security Council, gives it priority in Iraq in the arms purchase file.
Arms experts confirmed that there are two different levels of Russian weapons that Iraq can buy. Conventional systems that may not affect the American and European defense systems in Iraq, and the entire region, such as the S300 defense system and Sukhoi aircraft of various types, and there are complex defense systems, such as the S400 air defense system, that may overlap and disintegrate the American air defense systems in Iraq, and the entire region. And since the decision to purchase these advanced systems will expose Iraq to American "anger", and possibly sanctions.
The spokeswoman for the State Department during the previous US administration, Heather Nauert, had said in public statements that Iraq would be subjected to US sanctions according to the US "CATSA Law" if it purchased advanced Russian air defense systems, and that her country's government had contacted the Iraqi government in this regard, And Iraq knows very well the consequences of doing so. The institutions of the new US administration have not issued anything that might contradict that, which means that the US restrictions are still in effect.
The Iraqi military analyst Mamdouh Alwan Al-Janabi explained, according to the "Sky News Arabia" website, the pressures that Iraq is currently subjected to in the shadows of this duality. At the same time, the largest force supporting it in this war, i.e. the forces of the international coalition, is subjected to military attacks by major forces from inside Iraq.At this time, Iraq expects the forces of the international coalition to leave soon of its territory, and consequently the possibility of defeat, or at least weakening, in the face of ISIS.”
Iraq has been one of the most important suppliers and military partners of Russia or the former Soviet Union since the early seventies of the last century, when the two sides signed the famous Treaty of Friendship in 1972, which raised the levels of armaments of the Iraqi army in a remarkable way, after Iraq purchased Russian weapons worth more than 30 billion dollars during three decades . Those military relations between the two countries resumed after 2008, after Russia canceled the weapons debts accumulated with the Soviet era, which amounted to nearly 13 billion dollars, in exchange for contracts in the field of oil, especially in the West Qurna field project, whose production capacity exceeds 12% of Iraq’s production. for oil.
As of the following year, Iraq began buying Russian weapons, including a deal to purchase 36 combat helicopters worth $1.3 billion, and another contract worth $4 billion to supply the Russian Pantsir system with the necessary missiles. Detailed contracts between the two countries continued at an average of $1.7 billion, but without any contracts. about strategic weapons.
The commander of the US Central Command, Frank McKenzie, had warned in statements to the Associated Press of the Russian and Chinese overreach in the areas of regional influence from which the United States seeks to withdraw, especially in terms of creating strategic partnerships in the field of arms. The American general meant the deterioration of the situation and the imposition of sanctions between the United States and Turkey, following the latter’s purchase of a Russian defense system, and the possibility that the matter would apply to Iraq itself, especially after the American company Lockheed Martin announced the return of its F16K fighter plane to save its crews from missile attacks by militias, which may Iraq pays to buy alternative defense systems.
Aram Nerguizian, a senior advisor in the Program on Civil-Military Relations in Arab Countries at the Carnegie Middle East Center, explained in an interview with Defense website the difficulty of Iraqi options from being able to balance the United States and Russia inside Iraq.
"Russia can certainly play a role in modernizing or replacing some of Iraq's old systems," he said. "While Iraq continues to operate Russian-origin attack helicopters. Russia has already sold a different type of T-90S battle tank, but the bigger question is how Iraq can maintain A mixed fleet of U.S. and Russian armor. Russia could also try to sell Iraq systems that can increase armor mobility and fixed-wing multirole aircraft — 4.5-generation aircraft such as the Su-35 and its derivatives — and continue to explore ways to offer Iraq options for multi-layered air defense systems."

The one thing that has been over and over was In the end times the Dis information, Depictions, The negative New coming out would be over the top.......the PTB in Iraq want people to lose hope and faith and dump the Large Bills both inside and outside of Iraq.

 

Everyone seems to be talking Cryptos, Silver, Gold and lately AMC are all discussed in a very Positive Light while the only news out on the IQD is disheartening to say the best.

 

The guru's for the most part are staying very up (like they have been for years) (not that I put much hope into people that seem to be calling it 4-5 times a year) then a few of the others have done a complete 180 and a tlking nothing but Doom and Gloom...3-4 more years if at all.

 

They have come too far, accomplished to much, made huge plans for the future and the people and companies are there making it happen........

 

When the Average Iraqi Citizens become Hungry and then Unruly those same PTB are going to be in serious trouble. 

 

Unlike here in the States where the the Average Law Abiding wont take a Stand.......The Iraqi's gave them a year to get the reforms done and now it is going on 2 years with Limited Protests....

If anyone been in this investment a while, it was Maliki who brought the Russian fighter jets, and went to Russia and took pictures and had the pictures on the front page of the local newspaper, then came back, and demanded Shabibi give him a loan from the Central Bank reserves, and when Shabibi declined to give Maliki money from the CBI reserves, Maliki issued a Arrest Warrant on Shabibi.

Im not feeding into this article at all.
