JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A REPORT THAT IRAQ’S MILITARY IS TO ENTER TALKS WITH THE UNITED STATES ON THE SUBJECT OF AMERICA WANTING TO COMPLY WITH IRAQ’S REQUEST THAT ITS FORCES LEAVE THE COUNTRY – SOMETHING HERE IS JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE – AMERICA’S LEAVING IRAQ WOULD HAVE IMPLICATIONS FOR AMERICAN FORCES “STEALING OIL” IN EASTERN IRAQ – IMPLICATIONS WHICH WOULD MAKE ISRAEL VERY UNHAPPY – AND THAT IS SOMETHING TRUMP IS INCAPABLE OF DOING   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN PRESS TV

 

“Iraq serious about US troops pullout, negotiations will start next June: Spokesman

“Iraq’s Major General Khalaf noted that the two countries will next June discuss setting a timetable for the withdrawal of US troops in full compliance with the relevant parliamentary decisions, and a bilateral agreement on the matter will be worked out”

 

That just sounds too reasonable to be the complete truth.

After all, you are speaking of the United States, a country which never lets reasonableness, or indeed international law, stand in the way of it getting what it wants.

Perhaps they plan heavy new covert CIA forces in Iraq to replace uniformed soldiers or have some other scheme?

If US forces were to completely leave Iraq, as by rights they should, the American position in Syria’s East would become unsustainable.

That would make Israel very unhappy.

The purpose of those forces is exactly to create difficulties for Syria’s future reconstruction effort. Trump’s demonic-clown muttering about “liking to steal oil” is just an asinine cover for the real purpose. Of course, they will steal the oil, too, while they are there.

Israel, in the background, was largely responsible for both wars – Iraq and Syria – and Israel doesn’t like losing.

Has anyone ever once observed Trump doing anything other than what pleases Israel?

And, yes, as another comment noted, what does “next June” mean? A month away or thirteen months away?

And that’s just for the start of talks.
