Is US readying itself to re-invade and occupy Iraq?

By Robert Inlakesh

In the wake of the great escalation of January 2020, ultimately resulting in the retreat of United States forces, situated across Iraq, down to a few key bases around Baghdad that now come under regular rocket attack by local anti-occupation resistance groups, American strategic planners are confronted with only two choices: leave Iraq or launch a full-scale shock attack operation in the country's west and subsequent occupation of the area to regain the strategic initiative.

The US finds itself in its current position in Iraq, for the first time since the North Korean army invasion of South Korea in 1950 - an event which nearly threw American troops, at Pusan, into the sea and forced them to fight a protracted defense.

For a military force whose historical doctrine has been to 'attack, attack, attack', America’s current position in Iraq is terribly awkward and uncharacteristic of the usual predicament of total superiority it generally finds itself in.

The second picture of this report and image shown below, titled ‘U.S. Offensive – Phase I’, is the first stage of a highly probable invasion model that the US is likely considering. It involves a shock attack with, at the very least, a large division-sized (20,000+ troops, excluding contractors) American airborne-motorized force, likely launched out of Saudi Arabia (the launch pad for the previous two Gulf wars).

Attacking across mostly open desert terrain with undisputed air support, the initial goals of capturing the middle-lower Euphrates valley cities of Al-Qaim and Ramadi could, without any exaggeration, be achieved within days.

In doing this the US would secure the Syrian-Iraqi border space running from Jordan to Al-Qaim, and, anchoring the eastern extent of the zone of operations at Ramadi, could extend its current Jordan-based supply line all the way to the bases they have at the Al-Omar Oil Fields.

This action alone would cut the Iranian communication line that runs to Damascus, however the problem remains that the US zones of control in Shaddadi (north-eastern Syria) and Erbil (northern Iraq) would remain disconnected from the common operations zone, with a large PMU force north of Al-Qaim wedged between it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Inlakesh puts together a brilliant, and thoughtful, scenario here; but there is a question which remains unasked in this article: should the US do this,
what will Russia do, in light of the fact that one of its chief politicians, told his Iranian counterpart last summer, that if Iran is attacked by the US, it will not stand alone.

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

This came out in the English language edition of the Moscow times on 26 June, 2019; why do I seem to be the only person still standing who remembers this being said?!??

This.... is literally the 5,000 lb polar bear, lounging on the Bosendorfer Baby Grand, on this issue.

But there is one thing that Inlakesh got absolutely correctly; this has to happen before the US end of the Covid-19 shut-down, which is, at this moment, is set for Friday, 1 May, 2020; this gives the Federal Government 30 days to either retreat entirely from Iraq, or use it, and Saudi Arabia, as the bases from which to ultimately attack Iran.

I am an American who cares greatly about this country, and the future trajectory of both its domestic and foreign policies. I care greatly about our men and women in uniform, so I am respectfully asking the civilian government in the US to use both restraint, and wisdom, in their deployment here.

A war with Russia over Iran?!?

There is nothing Israel's Netanyahu would love to see happen more than this.

But if there were any possible scenario which could create at something perceivedly good for Israel, but which would be card-carryingly horrible for We the People, I can hardly think of a worse one than this one could create.

And before I end this post, Mr. President, would you please have someone break the following down for you, in digestible format, and that would be the following.

'But Sir, It’s an American Ship.' 'Never Mind, Hit Her!' When Israel Attacked USS Liberty

Mr. President, with "friends" like this......?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I'm just saying.
