US Evacuating Consulate In Iraq, Citing Threats From Iran

On Friday the State Department announced it is evacuating all non-essential personnel from the US consulate in Basra, Iraq.

The drastic move comes after a month of heavy anti-Iran and anti-Iraqi government protests that have gripped the southern city, which has led to sectarian rioting and the burning of Shia militia buildings, as well as the torching of the Iranian consulate early this month. During the first week of September the US embassy in Baghdad's green zone also came under attack by mortar fire, which US officials and military analysts blamed on Iran-backed militias.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cited threats from Iran as the reason for ordering the Basra consulate evacuation, and in a separate statement a senior US official confirmed to CNN that the "ordered departure" was due to "security threats from Iran."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, things are starting to escalate here against Iran, big-time.

Removing consular staff because of "threats" is most generally going to be one the steps before outright war against the accused country, whether or not that accused country is actually the culprit.

Folks, things are escalating abruptly. When a the US government starts pulling its personnel out of Consulate which claims there have been"threats" against it, that is usually the warning shot/message before an all-out breakout of a shooting war against the accused country and the US.

I am very powerfully convinced that right after the midterms in this country, the Federal Government will reinstate the draft, because of a massive shortage along all areas of the US military..
