US plans to build new base in western Iraq for Patriot missile system deployment: Source

An Iraqi security source says the US military intends to construct a new military base in the country’s western province of al-Anbar for the deployment of Patriot missile systems.

“US forces intend to establish a new base in Umm Samij area north of al-Baghdadi district in the city of Hit in order to deploy a Patriot anti-missile system, and protect Ain al-Assad air base as well as other locations in western regions against possible attacks,” the unnamed source told Iraq’s Arabic-language al-Ahad news agency on Monday.

He noted, “Identification of a location for the deployment of the Patriot missile system is the first of its kind in Iraq. Such measures are indicative of US forces’ intention to stay in their bases in the western regions of Iraq for a long period of time.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this report is true, (and presstv.com generally "nails and vets" its information before it is published), it is correct in its assessment that it does not appear that the US government is planning to leave Iraq soon; in fact, such a base of operation might well be established as a "forward operation base" from which to attack Iran directly, should that be the thinking in DC.

I do not know how long it takes to build a military base in a foreign country; but after the Covid 19 has peaked in Iran, one may well see some kind of US military action against it, and perhaps sooner than later, to demonstrate that the current administration is "doing something" against Iran before November's election; if, in fact, the US election IS held in November of this year.
