US to Iraq: ‘Vote All You Want, We’re Not Leaving!’

President Trump’s decision earlier this month to assassinate Iran’s top military general on Iraqi soil – over the objection of the Iraqi government – has damaged the US relationship with its “ally” Iraq and set the region on the brink of war. Iran’s measured response – a few missiles fired on an Iraqi base after advance warning was given – is the only reason the US is not mired in another Middle East war.

Trump said his decision to assassinate Gen. Qassim Soleimani was intended to prevent a war, not start a war. But no one in his right mind would think that killing another country’s top military leader would not leave that country annoyed, to say the least. Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) said the Trump Administration’s briefing to Congress on its evidence to back up claims that Soleimani was about to launch attacks against the US was among the worst briefings they’d ever attended.

After initially claiming that Soleimani had to be taken out immediately because of “imminent” attacks he was launching against the US, Trump Administration officials including Secretary of State Pompeo and Defense Secretary Esper have been busy walking back those claims. Esper claimed over the weekend that he had not seen the intelligence suggesting an attack on US embassies was in the works. If the Secretary of Defense did not seen the intelligence, then who did?

No doubt the Iraqi leadership recognized these kinds of deceptions: the same kinds of lies were used to push the US into attacking their own country in 2003. So it should not have come as a big surprise that the Iraqi government met last week and voted that all foreign military personnel should leave Iraqi soil.

Then a funny thing happened when the Iraqi prime minister attempted to communicate to the US government the will of the Iraqi people through their democratically-elected officials. On Thursday Iraqi Prime Minister Mahdi phoned Pompeo to urgently request that Washington enact a US troop “withdrawal mechanism” in Iraq. American troops are in Iraq by invitation of the Iraqi government and the Iraqi government had just voted to revoke that invitation.

The State Department responded with a statement titled “The US Continued Partnership with Iraq,” in which it essentially said that the US would not abide by the request of its Iraqi partners because the US military is a “force for good” in the Middle East and that as such it is “our right” to maintain “appropriate force posture” in the region.

The US invaded Iraq based on Bush Administration lies and a million Iraqis died as a result. Later, President Obama ramped up the drone program and also backed al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists to overthrow the secular Syrian government. Obama also attacked Libya based on lies, leaving the country totally destroyed. Trump is assassinating foreign officials and threatening destruction of Iran.

And the State Department calls that a “force for good”?

The United States can be a true force for good, however. End the military occupation of the Middle East, end foreign military aid, stop using the CIA to overthrow governments. Allow Americans to travel and do business in any country they wish. Lead by example and demonstrate how free markets and peace benefit all. A “force for good” means not forcing others to bow to your will.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Influential Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in a meeting with leaders of the country’s popular forces conferred on ways to end the US occupation of the country.
The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news website reported on Monday that the meeting was hosted by Secretary General of al-Nujaba Movement Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi and attended by Head of the Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS) Abu Alaa al-Wala’i and a representative of Asa’eb al-Haq resistance group.

The information center of al-Nujaba Movement released images of the meeting which was aimed at coordination to expel the American forces from Iraq.

Al-Kaabi had on Sunday reassured the family of IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, who was savagely assassinated by the terrorist army of the US at Baghdad International Airport, that resistance groups of the region will exact revenge on American perpetrators of the criminal act.

In his visit to the house of martyred General Soleimani in Tehran, al-Kaabi said that the resistance movement will take revenge on perpetrators of US terrorist act in assassinating General Soleimani very soon.

“Islamic Resistance Movement of Iraq (Al-Nujaba) promised daughter of Gen. Soleimani to take revenge on martyrdom of General Soleimani” reiterated the Iraqi figure.

Iraq will not be a safe place for American mercenaries and terrorists anymore, he emphasized.

The Iraqi Parliament passed a resolution to work to end the foreign troop presence in the Arab country in the wake of a US targeted assassination of a top Iranian general and a commander of Iraqi popular forces.

The resolution, which was passed anonymously, instructed the government to cancel a request for military assistance to the US-led coalition, which was issued in response to the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (known as ISIL, ISIS or Daesh) terror group.

“The government commits to revoke its request for assistance from the international coalition fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant due to the end of military operations in Iraq and the achievement of victory,” the resolution read, adding, “The Iraqi government must work to end the presence of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil and prohibit them from using its land, airspace or water for any reason.”

The resolution stated that Iraqi military leadership has to report the number of foreign instructors that are necessary for Iraqi national security.

Earlier, Abdul Mahdi had requested that parliament order the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country.

Judiciary Chief: US President Should Stand Trial for Assassination of General Soleimani

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Judiciary Chief Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi said Iran will file a complaint at international courts against US President Donald Trump for violating all international laws by ordering assassination of IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.
“This issue will certainly be pursued at the Human Rights Headquarters in cooperation with the foreign ministry and other bodies and we should make the US president account for his deeds as the prime suspect and he should face complaint,” Rayeesi said, addressing the judiciary officials in Tehran on Monday.

“The complaint will be filed as he stands in power as the US president and after that, and this issue will be pursued and we will not leave him alone and he should be stand at an international tribunal,” he added.

General Soleimani was martyred in a targeted assassination attack by the US drones at Baghdad International Airport early on January 3.

The airstrike also martyred Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), or Hashad al-Shaabi. The two were martyred in an American airstrike that targeted their vehicle on the road to the airport.

Five Iranian and five Iraqi militaries were martyred by missiles fired by the US drone at Baghdad International Airport.

Trump has said that he ordered a precision strike to “terminate” the Iranian commander.

The attack came amid tensions that started by the US attack on PMF units that killed 28 Iraqi popular forces. A day later, Iraqi people attacked the US embassy in Baghdad.

The targeted assassination attack represents a dramatic escalation by the US toward Iran after months of tensions. The tensions take root in Trump’s decision in May 2018 to withdraw the US from Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers, struck under his predecessor.

Last Wednesday, the IRGC Aerospace Force launched heavy ballistic missile attacks on US Ein Al-Assad airbase in Southwestern Iraq near the border with Syria and a US operated airbase in Erbil in retaliation for the assassination of General Soleimani.

Questions about Trump’s being Unable to Produce Any Real Evidence the Murdered by Trump Iranian General Was Planning To Attack American Embassies

Then we agree!
Fuck America!
Viva Israhell!

18 years ago, on 11 September 2001, Mossad and USA/DC attacked the American Home land at New York murdering over 3,000 souls.

Everyone able to chew gum and walk at the same time knows, (unless the ignorance is self imposed), the “Official” 9-11 story / investigation both, should start with In a Land far-far away, and end with, and they all lived happily ever after, and is. grade A, USA, Un-adulterated Washington DC Bull Shit!

Yet 18 years and counting, DC has not fessed up to the truth and arrested their own pedophilic asses for treason, murder and just generally for lying their butts off?

And yet again, trying to get one more war going for the benefit of the Ratschilds Israhell Khazarian Mafia Headquarters and hide out in occupied Palestine.

As well as stealing over 11 million dollars a day from the Hard Pressed American worker, struggling in the basement level dump economy crafted by the DC geniuses and ships it to the Ratschilds in occupied Palestine!

I would not hold my breath for any evidence on this latest in a generations long, over two hundred year history of War Crimes based on False Flags and contrived lies by the USA/DC Crime Cabal.

In this the latest of the USA/DC’s War Crimes, the Trickster Trumpster murdering a diplomat from another country, in yet a third country, which Trump had the Saudi’s lure there on a fake “Peace Mission”, so Trump could murder the Iranian General who defeated ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and is a hero of the Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian peoples, any “evidence” which the Crime Cabal provides should start with “Once upon a time in a Land far-far away, and end with, “and they all lived happily forever more”.

When Iran Air Flight 655 Was Shot Down By A US Navy Guided Missile Cruiser

I personally knew the officer who had been the XO on the ship when they shot down the Iranian Airliner. He finished his 20 blackballed and with no chance for advancement

In both Air Liner shoot downs, if not for the War Crimes of the USA, neither one would have been shot down, and all those people would not be dead.

From best evidence not manufactured, the CIA brought down the Pan Am flight, not Iran or Libya.

The Ole Dog!
——————————————

n 1988, a US warship shot down an Iranian commercial plane, killing all onboard. The American captain and his crew were hailed as heroes, Scotland suffered, Libyans were punished, and we are still living with the effects today.

It began when Iraq invaded Iran on September 22, 1980. America sided with Iraq, and by the time it ended on August 20, 1988, about a million people were dead. What ended the war, however, was an event that took place in the Strait of Hormuz.

As the world gets 20% of its oil through this maritime route, the Iraq-Iran War extended to this vital Strait with disastrous consequences. On May 17, 1987, the USS Stark was hit by two Iraqi missiles – killing 37 US Navy men and wounding another 21. It was an accident, of course.

Despite this and other such incidents, commerce, fishing, and civilian transport continued using the Strait. To ensure they were able to, the US sent in its navy to protect them, as well as to enforce trade sanctions against Iran.

Iran responded by harassing ships – not just those from Iraq, but also those from neighboring countries. They also planted sea mines around their waters, one of which damaged the USS Samuel B. Roberts on April 14, 1988.

Four days later, the US retaliated with Operation Praying Mantis and attacked Iranian oil rigs in Iranian waters. The next day, they sank the Iranian frigate Sahand.

Non-Iranian merchant vessels and oil tankers paid the price. Many were harassed by Iranian Boghammar High-Speed Patrol Boats (HSPB), even in international waters.

On the evening of July 2, the merchant ship Corona Maris issued a distress call that began a tragic countdown. It was passing through the Strait when it was attacked by about 12 to 15 Boghammars. The USS Elmer Montgomery went to their rescue and escorted the ship out to the Arabian Sea.

The next morning, US Navy ships detected loud explosions. The USS Vincennes rushed to the Dhaulagiri, a German merchant ship, but they were not under attack.

It then went to help the Montgomery, and in doing so, crossed into Omani waters. That angered Oman, and the Vincennes was ordered to leave, so it did.

Captain Richard McKenna, Surface Warfare Commander in the Persian Gulf, was furious with Captain William C. Rogers III of the Vincennes. He was a hothead who had already stepped on many toes.

US military presence in the Persian Gulf was already a sensitive issue, and Rogers had no authorization to join the Montgomery which did not need any help. Hoping to de-escalate the situation, McKenna told Rogers to stay put and to send a chopper to investigate the explosions.

The helicopter pilot reported coming under fire by Iranian speedboats further north, so Rogers violated McKenna’s orders and entered Iranian waters.

Iran Air Flight 655 was an Airbus A300B2. On the morning of July 3, it was Captained by Mohsen Rezalan – a veteran pilot who was on his second leg of the day, and unhappy. He was 27 minutes late for his 28-minute flight from Teheran’s Bandar Abbas Airport to Dubai.

At 10:17 AM Iranian time (UTC +3:30), 655 finally took off and headed back the way it had come along commercial air corridor Amber 59 – a 20-mile wide lane which stretched directly over the Vincennes.

Down below, Rogers was having the time of his life blasting Boghammers when his men detected Flight 655. They contacted the plane but got no response. Switching to civilian channels, they ordered the “F-14” to change course.

If Rezalan received it, he ignored it. He was not the only commercial plane in the vicinity, nor was he flying an F-14 fighter jet.

Remembering the Stark and the Samuel B. Roberts while in the midst of a skirmish with Boghammars and other armed speed boats, Rogers gave the order to fire. There was a media crew onboard, that day, which recorded the jubilation on the bridge as they confirmed a direct hit on the plane.

Minutes later, the mood changed when they received radio broadcasts in both English and Farsi. The voices were desperate, pleading anyone in the vicinity to head for the crashed plane.

As they were already in Iranian waters, the Vincennes was the first to arrive. In the sea were 290 dead bodies – 66 of whom were children. There was no more cheering after that, not even from Rogers.

America denied having any ships in Iranian waters and blamed Iran for the incident. They also claimed that 655 was descending as if in attack mode.

They gave Rogers the Legion of Merit for his performance and the rest of the crew a hero’s welcome in San Diego. They would change their stories years later, but for others, it would be too late.

The day after the shooting, Iran’s Charge d’Affaires in Britain, Mohammad Basti, gave a press conference vowing revenge. He did not specify what Iran would do, only that it would be commensurate to the downing of Flight 655.

Iran was convinced the shooting was no accident – signaling America’s intent to enter the war. Exhausted, demoralized, and reeling from sanctions, they opened peace talks and formally ended the war in August.

Months later on December 21, Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow Airport on the way to New York. Aboard were 243 passengers and 16 crew. As it flew over Scotland’s residential Lockerbie district, it blew up, killing everyone plus 11 on the ground.

Given Basti’s earlier threat, suspicion fell on Iran. The next day, a group calling itself the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution claimed responsibility – as did many others.

Blame eventually shifted to Libya. Buckling under the pressure, Muammar Gaddafi admitted responsibility for Pan Am 103, handed over the men allegedly responsible, and paid compensation to the victims’ families.

Despite many in the US Navy condemning Rogers, and revelations that initial reports about the incident were false, the US refused to apologize or admit legal liability for Flight 655. Although it did pay compensation to the victims’ families in 1996.

US threatens to quash Iraq’s economy if its forces are expelled

The US administration threatened to block Iraq’s access to its funds in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York if Baghdad expels American troops from the country, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The paper quoted unnamed Iraqi officials as saying that the US State Department warning came after the Iraqi parliament voted in favour of a resolution demanding the removal of American forces from Iraq following the assassination of Commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, in a US drone attack in Baghdad.

The move could harm Baghdad’s already fragile economy, the paper added. Iraq uses the account to deposit its oil sale revenues and pay government salaries and contracts.

READ: Iraq officially asks US to initiate troop withdrawal

According to the most recent financial statement from the Central Bank of Iraq, the Federal Reserve held about $3 billion in overnight deposits at the end of 2018.

US President Donald Trump is reported to have also threatened to impose economic sanctions on Iraq after parliament asked Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi to remove nearly 5,300 American soldiers from Iraq.

Trump threatened that the US forces will not leave unless the Iraqi government paid for the air base America has built there. “We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it,” Trump said.

Report: US Used Israeli Intelligence in Assassination Operation of Iranian Commander

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Tel Aviv regime has helped Washington stage an operation that led to the assassination of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, US media reported quoting sources.
NBC News cited unnamed sources as saying that Israel added to the early January’s military operation by providing the Americans with key intelligence details on the matter.

The details helped confirm and verify intelligence from informants at a Syrian airport that General Soleimani had been on a nighttime flight from Damascus to Baghdad, info which was used to tip off the CIA.

The New York Times, in turn, reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ahead of Soleimani’s killing, and the Tel Aviv regime likely became Washington’s only ally which was in the know about the issue.

Unnamed US officials have also told The New York Times that the United States considered targeting General Soleimani since at least July 2018.

According to the newspaper, officials considered assassinating the senior Iranian general outside Iran, in Syria or Iraq, deeming that an attack against him in Iran itself would be too difficult to accomplish.

The US effort reportedly included cultivating agents to report on Soleimani’s movements across the region.

Former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton reportedly formally presented the option of assassinating General Soleimani in May, after the US deployment of a carrier strike group to the Middle East.

Netanyahu has called the US assassination of the top commander a justified act of self-defense and said Trump should be credited for “acting swiftly, forcefully and decisively”. Later, Israel’s Channel 13 reported that the primer warned his cabinet not to get too involved in the US assassination of General Soleimani, lest Tel Aviv gets dragged into the escalating conflict between Washington and Tehran.

Expert: US Plotting for Extensive Terrorist Attacks on Key Iraqi Cities

And here you thought the evil stupid blood thirsty cheering for the Murders and Theft USA/DC does to steal other folks wealth, while raping/murdering the innocent, was a new thing for the evil crowds of American sheep and their God, USA/DC.

Nope, the USA/DC has been a rabid mad dog for many generations, over two hundred years.

God gives a people a chance to grow as a people, he gives them a kingdom.

In due time, when the people have proved evil, unworthy, God tares down their kingdom and makes them slaves to another people.

The American sheep might as well bend over and spread the cheeks of their own ass!
Make it easier on the Horsemen when they arrive.

There are a lot of American evil cheering sheep, the Horseman must deliver the evil Karma the Americans sowed, back to them.

Just save time if all the evil cheering American sheep spread the cheeks of their own asses and accepted their just reward, without whining and blaming someone else for their evil birds come home to roost in America’s ass.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The US is plotting again for recruiting the ISIL terrorist group to attack Baghdad, Karbala and Najaf and set free the ISIL prisoners in Iraq, a prominent security expert said.
“Washington is pursuing different plots after failure of several of its plans in the region and its inability to prevent the approval of the plan to expel the American forces in the Iraqi parliament,” Hafez al-Basharah told the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website on Sunday.

He added that the US will in the next stages reinforce the ISIL by recruiting their remnants in Iraq and Syria, noting that it also plots to launch massive attacks against Baghdad, Karbala and Najaf and release the ISIL terrorists from Iraqi jails.

Al-Basharah said Washington seeks to find a pretext for its continued presence in Iraq.

Earlier this month, Iraq’s Parliament voted to have the US troops removed from the country, heeding a call from Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to take urgent measures and end the foreign forces presence as soon as possible.

The Iraqi Parliament passed a resolution to work to end the foreign troops presence in the Arab country in the wake of a US targeted assassination of a top Iranian general and a commander of Iraqi popular forces.

The resolution, which was passed anonymously, instructed the government to cancel a request for military assistance to the US-led coalition, which was issued in response to the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (known as ISIL, ISIS or Daesh) terror group.

“The government commits to revoke its request for assistance from the international coalition fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant due to the end of military operations in Iraq and the achievement of victory,” the resolution read, adding, “The Iraqi government must work to end the presence of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil and prohibit them from using its land, airspace or water for any reason.”

Canadian CEO Blasts Trump over Downed Plane in Iran

Works like this:
An evil murdering son of a whore bitch decides to murder an honorable man, because that man is stopping the the evil child raping murdering son of a slimy two bit whore bitch in the pursuit of the evil lying ass holes lusted for crimes against humanity.

When the murder victims family shoot back at. the evil son of a bitch, who murdered their honorable family member, they accidentally shoot one of their own or a bystander.

They have to take responsibility for the wayward round, and the dead from that round.

But the dead person killed with the wayward round from fighting back against the evil cowardly murderer, who hides in the shadows, and murders innocent folks from concealment, is ultimately the responsibility of the evil ass who started the ball rolling by murdering an innocent person, in this case the Hero General who Trump murdered for stopping Israhell’s ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Sort of like when the cops Are trying to arrest a desperado, and they have a shoot out.
Most cops being bad shots, they often shoot a lot of innocent dogs and bystanders not involved in the action.

The Cops are not charged with murder, even when they kill one of their own with their “dead eyed” marksmanship.

The person who did the crime started all this, is charged with the murder of the cop the cops shot by mistake.

So Trump not only murdered the honoranble Iranian General, who saved christians from rape, sexual slavery, death, in Syria and Iraq, from the. hands of US’s and Israhell’s proxy terrorist operatives, ISIS, and had a Hughe amount to do with the defeat of ISIS in those countries, but also all the Iranians on the Ukrainian jet Iran shot down by mistake.

When i was in the military, I always told my wife, if I was killed by friendly fire, I wanted no one prosecuted, as anyone who has been in combat, understands the mass confusion which reigns in such situations, and the razors edge of time one has to make decisions on when and where to shoot.

So Trump, in. a most foul and cowardly way, murdered the General, and all the souls on that plane, as well as any American servicemen’s deaths or woundings, not admitted to by USA/DC yet.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The CEO of packaged meats company Maple Leaf Foods took aim at President Donald Trump over the downing of a Ukrainian plane by Iran on Sunday, blaming the US for destabilizing the region and inflaming tensions with Tehran.
In a series of tweets, CEO Michael McCain wrote that he was “very angry” at Trump and blamed him for the deaths of dozens of Canadian citizens, including the family of an employee of his company, in the passenger jet crash that Iran’s government says was mistakenly shot down amid fears of war with the United States.

“I’m Michael McCain, CEO of Maple Leaf Foods, and these are personal reflections. I am very angry, and time isn’t making me less angry,” he tweeted.

“A narcissist in Washington tears world accomplishments apart; destabilizes region. US now unwelcomed everywhere in the area including Iraq; tensions escalated to feverish pitch. Taking out despicable military leader terrorist? There are a hundred like him, standing next in line,” he continued.

“The collateral damage of this irresponsible, dangerous, ill-conceived behavior? 63 Canadians needlessly lost their lives in the crossfire, including the family of one of my MLF colleagues (his wife + 11 year old son)!” McCain added.

“We are mourning and I am livid,” he concluded.

McCain’s tweets echoed criticism of Trump’s actions towards Iran, in particular the assassination of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, by Democrats on Capitol Hill who have blamed the president for what they say was an unnecessary provocation of Iran without the authorization of Congress.

A Boeing 737 plane carrying 180 passengers and crew, mostly Iranians, crashed shortly after takeoff from Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran early Wednesday, leaving no survivors. Tehran has announced that the jet was downed due to “human error”, extending condolences to the families of those killed in the incident.
