US MILITOCRACY THROWS A TANTRUM OVER TIKRIT IN IRAQ. (26.03.2015)
There is a lot of flatulence flying over Capitol Hill today, with US inevitably using NATO's phoney 'Islamic State' to try and demand the US military entirely control Iraq again.
The ever dishonest President 'Uncle Tom' Obama of the United States of America, who are not Arab last time we looked, are still not leaving any 'legacy' in Iraq, that anyone will want to be 'remembered' by.
another uncle tom who is not arab and has all the legal authority of a sewer rat
"...America’s top commander for the Middle East, General Lloyd Austin, has revealed that the US insisted that Iranian-backed Shia militias be removed from the battle to retake Tikrit city from Isis before it agreed to join the effort with air strikes.
General Austin spoke to members of Congress one day after the US began aerial operations to give new impetus to the weeks-old campaign to retake Tikrit. Baghdad had appealed for air support, and today Iraqi special forces were reportedly advancing towards the centre of Tikrit.
Concern has been building on Capitol Hill that as the US expands its military co-operation with the Iraqi government against Isis, it risks working hand-in-hand with Tehran which is also sending men and equipment into Iraq for the same purpose.
“It is hard to see how empowering Iran’s proxies is in the… interest of an inclusive Iraq or a stable Middle East,” Ed Royce, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, noted.
The Pentagon has insisted it is not co-ordinating operations with any Iran-related forces. But this is the first time the US has demanded the removal of Shia militias as a condition for engagement.
General Austin also said the US required the Iraqi authorities to provide assurances that all those fighting in Tikrit were under its command. “Once those conditions were met – which included [Shia] militias not being involved – then we were able to proceed,” General Austin told the committee.
He also said he would never endorse any joint operations with the militias: “[After] three tours in Iraq, commanding troops who were brutalised by some of these… militias, I will not...co-ordinate or co-operate with Shia militias [but the US are absolutely fine with their Kurdish militias]”
Retired General John Allen, President Barack Obama’s special envoy to the coalition fighting Isis, told members that the campaign is making progress, particularly in Iraq where Isis has lost more than a quarter of the populated territory it once held. “We’re clearly degrading its capabilities,” he said. But he acknowledged the situation in Syria is harder to assess...."
Goodness me. Next the Nazis in the White-house will be saying they don't want anyone who is Shia in Iraq or anyone who is Palestinian in Palestine. Oh hang on, the UN already tried that one.
The US Nazi state has some truly dreadful 'best friends' amongst the unelected despots in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain and so on, who only reveal Iran to be the most modern state compared to them all.
My how the mask of 'democracy' is slipping, revealing the true 'militocracies' which have nothing to do with any 'administrative' rule of any civilian populations.
The US is a militocracy where the 'President' is also the military 'Commander in Chief'.
