BAGHDAD, Iraq (PNN) - March 16, 2020 – The Fascist Police States of Amerika military is preparing to reduce its presence in Iraq by several hundred troops, and this will involve removing forces from three bases in the country, including the al-Qaim base near Syria’s border, and air bases near Mosul and Kirkuk.
Officials are not providing a timetable for these cuts, but are justifying them as part of the success of the fight against ISIS, saying the areas are securely under the control of Iraqi security forces. No mention was made of recent FPSA air strikes against Iraqi militias.
With Pentagon officials presenting that as a fight against Iran, there was some speculation that this would mark the beginning of a new FPSA escalation into Iraq, even though Iraq is plainly objecting to that strategy. The FPSA has been moving additional air defenses into Iraq to protect troops from retaliation.
It may be that removing troops from these mostly western bases will allow the FPSA to focus more heavily on its presence in eastern Iraq, and focus air defenses in those areas where rockets are more likely to be fired by militias.
