String Of Attacks On US Forces And Facilities Continues In Iraq

Last night, two rockets struck the Green Zone in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. The heavily fortified area houses some of the main Iraqi government offices and the US embassy. There were no immediate reports about casualties. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Earlier, Saraya Thorat Al-Ashrin Al-Thani, one of Iraq’s many anti-US groups, which have surfaced since the start of the year, released two videos claiming that these show attacks on convoys carried out using US equipment. According to the group, the attacks took place on May 20 and June 6. The impact of the attacks remains unclear.

Military bases housing US troops across Iraq and the U.S. embassy have frequently been targeted by mortar and rocket attacks over the post months. According to US officials, most of these have been carried out by Iranian-backed forces.

Iraqi-U.S. relations have been witnessing tensions since January 3 when a US drone struck a convoy at Baghdad airport, killing Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy chief of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces. This attack escalated tensions in the region and led to a large-scale Iranian missile attack on US military bases in Iraq. The Iraqi Parliament also demanded that the US withdraw its troops from the country. Washington rejected the demand and threatened Iraq with sanctions if it is forced to withdraw its forces.

On June 11, US and Iraqi officials will be holding another meeting to discuss the current state of  Iraqi-US relations and the issue of US troop withdrawal from the country. However, it remains highly unlikely that Washington will back down from its de-facto occupation of the country.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces continue their anti-ISIS raids in eastern Homs and southern Raqqah in central Syria. According to pro-government sources, over 10 ISIS members have been neutralized in the framework of these efforts since the start of the month.

On June 10, a unit of the Syrian Army and pro-government locals blocked a US military convoy and forced it to retreat near the village of Dardara in the province of Hasakah. Separately, a US military patrol was blocked by the Russian Military Police near Qamishli. At least one US vehicle broke down when it went off road to bypass the Russians.

    USA Not Popular Nation at Present …Probably Never will Be

  • Tommy Jensen

    Iran was also behind the latest Floyd riots in US.
    The killing of Floyd was staged by the Iran regime to saw regime change in the United States so that Iran could get back to the Obama deal, and that is not the only thing Iran has been doing to America.

        I was hoping he was being sarcastic but in this corona era is it still pass the joint or smoke your own .

    • FlorianGeyer

      There is a final solution for the dumbed down and oppressed United States of America, Tommy.

      Hand over the keys to the Whitehouse to Israel and hand over all your foreign policy, military forces and international trade arrangements to Israel.

      Its sort of what the US does now, but in an Official Agreement with Israel in perpetuity.

      • John Wallace

        I see the US is sanctioning ICC officials and their families that investigate US war crimes . No wonder the US is exceptional. If the sheep can’t see how reprehensible that is then they deserve to follow the Judas lamb.

        • Harry Smith

          Please pardon me bro, but didn’t you ever thought to put a comma after “reprehensible that is”? It could made your words more understandable, at my point. I am not a grammar nazzi, but just curious why many guys whose first language is English, don’t use commas like in Orwell or Carroll books. Please pardon me for my curiosity.

          • Wizzy

            Cuz nobody cares about commas. You shouldn’t either.

          • Traiano Welcome

            I find these days that grammatically perfect English is wasted on the unwashed masses. Might has well slum it.

          • John Wallace

            Sorry for being pedantic but did you ever thought to use think instead. Surely if one was going to make a comment on English usage one would thought , oops think , notice the comma usage , to make sure one’s own was correct first . This is not an English competition so perfect English is not necessary and most importantly why the fuck do I need to put a comma where one is not needed.

          • Harry Smith

            Sorry bro.

      • Man I hope you vote trumpf out this november

        • FlorianGeyer

          What Trump has done is to rip the mask of normality off the faces off the US politicians oligarchs, and this has exposed their ulcered faces with pure hatred in their eyes for the general populace.

          Even wishy washi liberals in Europe are realising that the US Empire is totally insane with greed and avarice.

          • Biden is the lesser evil, looks like he’ll win in the polls
            I don’t even have words for the current US economy, call it Trump’s 7th bankruptcy in his lifetime

          • FlorianGeyer

            Biden is openly a gangster,along with other politicians from both sides of the same coin.

          • Yes but sometimes one side of the coin is heavier than the other ;)

          • FlorianGeyer

            It’s a toss up as to which side. Heads or Tails, kenny ? :)

      You are forgetting the rôle of the black hand of Putin as welll as Animal Assad the evil gas monster in said usa maidan and their fiendish plots.

      • Traiano Welcome

        Putin has a black hand? I thought he white …

    • captainnemo2

      you are wrong it was Venezuela behind the riots, assisted by Iraq china Russia Libya and others.

      • Traiano Welcome

        Heck. It was ME. I funded it on kickstarter!

    • Traiano Welcome

      If this was staged by Iran, then my congratulations to the Mullahs.
      It means they have mastered the art of the asymmetrical warfare.
      When you can disrupt your enemies society without firing a shot.
      This is truly advanced technology.

      By the way, China is more likely responsible for the Floyd riots. /s

      • If China wanted to fund a rebellion in the US, it would already be done with, they have a lot of means, cyber too, to do it

    The United States occupation forces in Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan will suffer the death of a thousand cuts. The result is troop demoralization. Sad.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Sadly Funny :)

      It’s how empires end. The locals sense weakness.

  • 2020 = end of US (in Iraq & Syria)

    • FlorianGeyer

      It made me laugh when a US M Wrap broke down immediately it left the metalled road at 2:42 on the video :).
      The puff of smoke suggests a Turbo failure to me.

      US military vehicles are rather like the US regime, rather ugly, ungainly, overweight and fucking useless as combat vehicles.

      The end of the US everywhere cannot come fast enough for me, and I would think, the minority group of sane Americans as well.

      • The 26t debt bomb will soon explode, then we’ll see what they’re really worth, Russia and China will drop the dollar, and it will be isolated, and implode on it’s own, balkanize into smaller states

        • Harry Smith

          Nobody will drop the dollar and Balkanize USA. This cow has to be milked until the last drop, first. Unless Americans will ruin their own country, of course.

          • cechas vodobenikov

            as amerikans increase their antagonisms and internally fragment other nations are dedollarizing. Russia recently sold 90% of all US treasuries…many nations trade using national currencies and exclude the dollar—China, Russia, India, some South amerikan nations, Belarus,Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Asean nations, EU nations use the euro—Japan and Russia trade in yen/rubles…the US has “free trade” with only a few nations—colombia, Chile—otherwise tariffs are imposed due to the subsidized fake nature of the US economy—the only US export except weapons where the US gives money to other nations where they r required to purchase US trash, is agriculture—heavily subsidized by the govt as is the weapons industry….without the military Boeing would be bankrupt

        • cechas vodobenikov

          the dollar is the least preferred reserve currency amongst central banks today–many nations increasing gold holdings, diversifying with the euro, yen, Chinese renemebi, Swiss franc

      • cechas vodobenikov

        it is no accident that more than 30% of amerikans r diagnosed with mental illness–they have consumed 80+% of the legal psychotropics amongst all peoples in the past decade, 66% of the anti-depressants. I once worked as a psychologist in the USA—amerikans require cheerleading—so insecure they have participation awards where the females so mistrust their feelings and judgments that they r required to take “parent effectiveness training ” lessons to learn how to raise their children….as Geoffrey Gorer trained at the Sorbonne and University of Berlin wrote, “amerikan parents teach their children to have bad manners”

  • ali

    The Downfall is closer than ever…

  • Wizzy

    Contradictions are the ultimate sign of collapse. The problem is Israel takes over but its reign will be short.

  • cechas vodobenikov

    those that have read historians of empire—Toynbee, Rosnetzov, Tainter, Gibbon, Spenger r fully aware that the USA is near collapse—“last phase” according to both Jameson and Orlov…Galtung predicts it will collapse in less than 10 years…as Toynbee observed, jingoism is rampant in empires near collapse and 3 occupations r celebrated—the engineer, businessman (business is the very soul of an amerikan” Francis Grund), the soldier (the most admired institutions in USA be amerikans—the military and police….as Simmel observed empires near collapse internally fragment–see Robert Putnam’s ‘Bowling Alone’ the vandalism instigated by the police murder of a career criminal is another proof
    Gibbon attributed the fall of Rome to loss of “public virtue”-of course amerikans require immoral leaders to conduct immoral wars…obama only illegally bombed 8 Muslim nations 100,000 times, rakishly deported more Latinos in his 1st term than bush in 2 terms and far more than trump—employed the espionage act to silence whistleblowers/journalists more than all US presidents combined—this is why amerikans so admire him….and of course the population becomes more and more stupefied (the Roman i5th century ntellectual was less well read that the average Greek of 8 centuries previous—amerikans becoming ever more stupefied—“the dumbest generation”. Prof Mark Bauerlein; Susan Jacoby ‘the age of amerikan unreason’…polls find that more than half of amerikans–mainly liberals under 40 believe that astrology is scientific and recent polls find that 47+% of US adults believe in ghosts—will ghosts save the US empire?
    Toynbee found that all collapsing empires attempt to extend their pathetic existence with imperialism (the US has over extended its self spending more on its military than the next largest 14 nations combined—they now possess 1000 military installations in nearly 70% of the world’s nations. Tainter found that collapsing empires produce massive debt that is unsustainable, steal and borrow, print fake money…the US debt now 26 trillion and growing each year—they produce nothing, import everything (Russia and China both maintain surpluses)—the primitive gladiator sports for the peasants , their immature organized sound, etc—“a consciousness industry as both Bloom and Adorno, Horkheimer wrote
    “no people are more entertained and less informed than amerikans. Nowhere in an amerikan public education are the concepts of truth and falsity ever addressed, nor are ideas. amerikans do not converse; they entertain each other. amerikans do not exchange ideas; thy exchange images. the problem with amerikans is not Orwellian, it is huxleyan: amerikans love their oppression”. Neil Postman
    soon civilized nations will be free of amerikan theft, barbarism and stupidity
    “nothing can thrive in amerika unless inflated by hyperbole and gilded with a fine coat of fraud. amerikans cannot think except by means of slogans–they identify garbage as quality. the stupidity and ignorance of amerikans has long been a topic of hilarity in Europe”. Paul Fussell

  • Mr D

    Would be nice if you could mention the ongoing occupation of germany and what counts as genocide according to all points of the Un genocide convention.

    It feels weird being a Vet, who was in Iraq, actually hoping the Iraqis do enough damage that either the U.S. decides to leave, or we push “things” to WW3 level so we can eradicate the terrorist state of Israel, and all of the Satanic Talmudists across the globe, as well as the Communist dregs of humanity that carry their water.

    Heck, we can even through in the fake Conservative traitors in the GOP, and other so called “patriots” in various “Conservative” parties across the globe, who promote and vote for the Satanic cabal’s interests and initiatives.
