<<Iraq and the United States are negotiating an agreement that could result in the return of small units of American soldiers to Iraq on training missions. At the request of the Iraqi government, according to General Caslen, a unit of Army Special Operations soldiers was recently deployed to Iraq to advise on counterterrorism and help with intelligence. >>
Several foreign news agencies reported in September to December, 2012, that "'3,000 American troops returned through Kuwait and are mostly stationed at Balad military garrison in Salahuddin province and al-Asad air base in al-Anbar province. Reports say the troops include US Army officers and that almost 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route.'"
'The Hill' got a denial of this :
<<The Pentagon is disputing recent reports that 3,000 American troops are back on Iraqi soil, with an estimated 17,000 more en route to the Gulf nation, as part of the Pentagon and White House's contingency plan regarding Syria's possible use of chemical weapons. The U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq are allegedly part of a 20,000-man force being positioned in the country in response to concerns from Washington over concerns of a chemical weapons attack against Syrian rebels by embattled President Bashar Assad.>>
Well, there was a LOT of denial that we were going into Iraq in 1991, and 2003, too...remember?
AND WE'RE GOING INTO SYRIA NEXT?
Meanwhile, there is growing "concern" about how Iraq is "leaning" and the Times article went on to report, "the Baghdad government "leans closer" to the Shia regime in Iran and is looking to buy arms from Russia, while continuing to rely on military support from the United States. Aerial attacks by Turkey on Kurdish enclaves in the mountains of northern Iraq have added to the woes of a government trying to assert its sovereignty both in the air and on the ground."
[REMEMBER THIS REFERENCE TO ATTACKS ON KURDS...THAT WILL BE THE SUBJECT OF MY NEXT BLOG, MOST LIKELY.]
Back in December, 2012, The Examiner <yawn!> 'reported' "Unauthorized Syrian War?: Obama sends 400 troops to Turkey, 3,000 back to Iraq"...http://www.examiner.com/article/unauthorized-syrian-war-obama-sends-400-troops-to-turkey-3-000-back-to-iraq
"'On Friday, CNN reported that President Barack Obama’s United States Defense Secretary Leon Panetta “signed an order” while en route to Turkey “to send two Patriot missile batteries and 400 U.S. troops to operate them.”
The surface-to-air interceptors will help in "dealing with threats that come out of Syria," Panetta said after landing at Incirlik Air Base, a U.S. Air Force installation about 80 miles from Syria's border.
"We can't spend a lot of time worrying about whether that pisses off Syria," Panetta said Friday after signing the order to deploy Patriot missiles and 400 U.S. troops to Turkey.
The Obama administration and the CIA declined to answer questions about the episode.>>
WE NEVER ACTUALLY LEFT IRAQ, BUT NOW OUR TROOPS ARE "GOING BACK IN"?
MY FAMILY HAS LOST QUITE ENOUGH PRECIOUS LIVES OF FRIENDS AND RELATIVES TO THESE FALSE-FLAG, NEVER-ENDING WARS....HAS YOURS?
WAS THE LIFE OF EVEN ONE AMERICAN SOLDIER (OR ANY OTHER 'ALLIED TROOP') WORTH ALL THE OIL IN ALL THE WORLD, OR ALL THE OPIUM, OR ALL THE NATURAL RESOURCES ANY NATION HAS?
DO WE HAVE ANY RIGHT AT ALL TO GO INTO OTHER NATIONS AND FORCE OUR WILL UPON THEM? DO YOU THINK IT WAS TO "LIBERATE" THEM, REALLY?
HOW "LIBERATED" DO IRAQIS FEEL? OR AFGHANS? ASK ONE! GO AHEAD, JUST ASK!
RECENT PHOTOS OF THE SQUALOR CREATED IN IRAQ, THE HIDEOUS BIRTH DEFECTS OF THEIR CHILDREN (AND MANY OF OUR OWN SIRED BY RETURNING TROOPS RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA!!!) FROM DEPLETED URANIUM THAT WAS INDISCRIMINATELY USED IN BOMBING, IN MUNITIONS , SHOULD CONVINCE ANYONE THAT THOSE PEOPLE ARE SURE NOT "BETTER OFF"!
NEITHER ARE WE! NOT IN THE LEAST!
JUST A TASTE OF THE TRUTH ON DEPLETED URANIUM CAN BE HAD HERE:
OUR OWN TROOPS ARE SUFFERING HORRIBLY FROM IT! THEIR BABIES ARE BEING BORN WITH HORRIFYING BIRTH DEFECTS. WE LOSE VETS EVERY DAY FROM THIS!
AND FOR A MORE BITTER TRUTH, GOOGLE "IRAQI CHILDREN BIRTH DEFECTS DEPLETED URANIUM", BUT I WARN YOU....YOU'LL WISH YOU'D NEVER DONE THAT!
ASK OUR TROOPS COMING HOME WITH DEBILITATING ILLNESSES AND RENAL OR INTESTINAL DISEASES FROM THE VIRTUALLY POISONOUS AIR AND WATER OVER THERE IF THEY'D MOVE THEIR FAMILIES TO IRAQ! HOW MANY CONGRESSMEN DO YOU SEE VACATIONING IN IRAQ? THE INTERNET IS FLOODED WITH IRAQIS PLEADING FOR HELP TO GET THEIR SCHOOLS AND HOMES REBUILT, TO GET THEIR CITIES HABITABLE, TO GET POTABLE WATER, TO BE ABLE TO GROW FOOD THAT ISN'T CONTAMINATED BY WHAT "OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM" LEFT BEHIND.
FAMILIES ARE STILL LOOKING FOR LOVED ONES THAT JUST DISAPPEARED DURING THE LONG SIEGE. HIGH ESTIMATES ARE THAT PERHAPS 2 MILLION CIVILIAN LIVES WERE LOST IN THESE PAST 10 YEARS IN JUST IRAQ. LOW ESTIMATES SAY 100,000 TO 200,000...IS THAT ACCEPTABLE? IS THAT A "WIN"?
SO WHAT DID ALL THAT LOSS OF LIFE REALLY "CREATE" THAT IS GOOD FOR IRAQ....OR FOR AMERICA?
IF ANY NATION ON EARTH CAME AGAINST US AS WE HAVE GONE AGAINST SUCH PLACES AS IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, HOW WOULD WE REACT?
WELL, LOOK AT HOW WE REACTED WHEN 3 PLANES TOOK OUT 3 BUILDINGS HERE IN 2001.
WHY DIDN'T WE EVER TAKE SAUDI ARABIA TO TASK SINCE ALL THOSE FLYING "TERRORISTS" CAME FROM SAUDI ARABIA? OR WHY DIDN'T WE GO AGAINST PAKISTAN FOR ALL THE BIN LADEN BUSINESS, FOR HIDING HIM, FOR THEIR HITS ON AFGHAN AND AMERICAN FORCES, OR TURKEY FOR THE GENOCIDE OF THE KURDS, OR NORTH KOREA FOR DOING THE SAME AS WE SCREAM ABOUT IRAN DOING, OR ....YOU SEE? THE "LIST" IS ENDLESS.
WHY DOES AMERICA THINK WE HAVE A RIGHT TO GO IN AND KILL THE HEADS OF OTHER NATIONS? IF OTHER NATIONS DID THAT TO US, THEN WHAT?
PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS HAVE THE ABILITY TO TEND TO THEIR OWN AFFAIRS, AND, JUST AS WE, THEY WANT TO DO JUST THAT!
IT'S PAST TIME AMERICA STOPPED PLAYING "TOUGH COP" TO THE WHOLE WORLD!
WE HAVE TROOPS IN 150 NATIONS! HOW CRAZY IS THAT?
WE COULD BLOODY WELL USE THOSE TROOPS RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA, MAYBE EVEN TO STOP THE ACTS OF TERRORISM DONE BY OUR OWN CONGRESS AND SUPREME COURT, BUT WASHINGTON FEARS BRINGING THEM HOME...ACTUALLY, WASHINGTON FEARS THEM, PERIOD....JUST LIKE ROME FEARED HERS.
OUR TROOPS ARE NOT STUPID! THEY KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON IN "D.C." THEY SEE HOW THEIR NEEDS, BASIC NEEDS, ARE CAST ASIDE TO SAVE A FEW EXTRA TAX BUCKS FOR THE 2%!
THEY SEE HOW FUNDING IS BEING CUT TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE NECESSITIES LIKE ENOUGH CLEAN WATER, FOR GOD'S SAKE, IN THOSE SANDLOT NATIONS!
MAYBE THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE ON WHY WE KEEP "SENDING THEM BACK IN"?
WHEN WILL IT BE ENOUGH?
HOW MANY MORE HAVE TO COME HOME IN BODY BAGS?
HOW MANY MORE HAVE TO COME HOME WITH DOUBLE-, TRIPLE-, QUADRUPLE-AMPUTATIONS, PTSD, URANIUM POISONING, AND "UNDIAGNOSABLE" ILLNESSES?
SEND TROOPS BACK INTO IRAQ?
AMERICA SHOULD SCREAM FROM THE ROOFTOPS...."HELL NO! NOT ONE MORE!"
WE FOUGHT OUR OWN REVOLUTION...WE SHOULD BACK OFF AND ALLOW OTHER NATIONS TO DO THE SAME...IF THAT'S WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO DO.
NO MORE CANNON FODDER FOR IRAQ! BRING OUR LOVED ONES HOME!
