Rockets Hit Iraq Base Housing US Troops South of Baghdad | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Rockets Hit Iraq Base Housing US Troops South of Baghdad

Details are still emerging, but this was much fewer rockets than previous strikes, and so far there has been no word of any casualties in the incident. The US has threatened retaliation for further attacks, but no such strikes were yet reported.

Both sides have been hitting one another recently and talking up escalation. That this was a much smaller, casualty-free attack may suggest that the militias are trying to save face but not escalate the matter any further.

This would depend heavily on the US not looking to escalate further either, however, and all indications out of the administration are that they consider the Iraqi militias to be “Iranian proxies,” and are very keen to keep picking fights with them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Americans are well and truly distracted (and to some reasonable degree, should be) with Covid-19; hand sanitizers; and bathroom tissue, the folks in Foggy Bottom which brought you the original Iraq War, are most probably about to bring you the Iraq/Iran War 2.0, complete with very probable Russian military assistance to the Iranians.

Madness, you say?!? Absolute madness, writ large, dear readers, particularly
when a Russian Official, meeting with some Iranian counterparts in a Moscow conference last Summer, assured them that if Iran was attacked, "it would not stand alone."

Iran Won't Be Alone, if the US Attacks. The article, from last June's Moscow Times, English Language Edition, goes on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

“But it’s not just Russia, many other countries sympathize and empathize with Iran,” the Kommersant business daily quoted him as saying. “Tehran won’t be alone if the U.S., God forbid, takes wild and irresponsible actions against it.”

Readers, career politicians like Kabulov do not even FART without Putin's approval; and this statement was just as much for American consumption as for the Iranian delegates attending; unfortunately, DC's lethal combination of a collective "tin ear", and general hubris, in light of the fact that the US has, ultimately, lost every war it has started since Vietnam, is not helping the situation.

Oh, and BTW, who, really, "won" the war in Iraq?!?

In short form, China. And why do I say this?!?

Take a look at the following headline, and see for yourself: Iraq signs contract with Chinese oil company to complete 80 wells in Iraq

You are probably looking at this headline, dated September 7th, 1999, foaming at the mouth, fulminating, and thinking, "why the hell were the American people not told about this?!?" It is simple; the Trump Administration didn't want you to know, so the story was suppressed in most English language papers.

Here are other articles about this, primarily from the foreign press, in English:

Iraq, China launch 'oil for reconstruction' agreement

OH, and WAIT: there's more from Reuters:

CORRECTED-China's CPECC wins $121 mln West Qurna-1 contract from Iraq

The US government is DESPERATE to prevent China from starting this development deal, so what are they going to do?!? They are going to create a situation so dangerous for the Chinese, that the risk/benefit ratio will make it "too difficult" for China to move ahead with this.

So, how will they do this?!?

By declaring "Iraq War 2.0", of course; unlike China, which very much likes to create deals to get what they want, the Foggy Bottomites will most likely declare a "national emergency", leading to yet more military conflict in Iraq, and potentially against Iran itself, from Iraq, no matter how much the Iraqi government protests, or the costs to the Iraqi and/or Iranian people.
