USA tänker sälja vapen för 18 miljarder till ett destabiliserat Irak på gränsen till inbördeskrig

Business insider 2013-08-06. - USA & Pentagon tänker försöka sälja vapen för 18 miljarder till ett totaldestabiliserat Irak som är på gränsen till inbördeskrig och nära en fullständig kollaps... (engelsk text)

- The weapons deal would include 681 Stinger anti-aircraft missiles and 40 truck-mounted launchers, as well as three Hawk anti-aircraft batteries with 216 Hawk missiles, according to Agence France Presse.

The sale is primarily viewed as a way to support a possible no-fly zone in Iraq, though it would also help to cut off Iranian supplies to Syria through Iraqi air space.

"This capability will provide Iraq with the ability to contribute to regional air defenses and reduce its vulnerability to air attacks and also enhance interoperability between the government of Iraq, the US, and other allies," the Pentagon said in a statement.
Needless to say, arming Iraq might not be the best decision for Washington.

- The country is on the brink of total dissolution, the Kurds are acting autonomously in Syria as well as Iraq, and sectarian fighting is approaching mid-2006 levels.

From Reuters:

The attacks have raised fears of a return to full-blown sectarian conflict in a country where ruling Shi'ites and minority Sunni Muslims and Kurds have yet to find a stable way of sharing power.
More than 1,000 Iraqis were killed in July, the highest monthly death toll since 2008, the United Nations said last week.

One of the main concerns for not arming Syrian militias in the fight against Assad is that the same stinger missiles could fall into the wrong hands.
With the resurgence of Al Qaeda in Iraq, now might not be the best time to go throwing anti-aircraft weapons at President Nouri al-Maliki.

As Kim Kagan  notes  in the Weekly Standard, “ Some of the militia activity is occurring within sight of Iraqi Security Forces checkpoints,” suggesting Maliki, “is either tolerating it or has lost control over the escalation.”

  1. Effektivt att spela ut grupper mot varandra genom false flags och sen hålla liv och eskalera det hela i totalt inbördeskrig. Extremt hjärndöda sheeple köper bluffen varje gång. Ur kaos kommer ordning.

    1. Funkar också utmärkt om man vill minska jordens befolkning en aning...
