Baghdad, Tehran Boost Military, Security Cooperation. Washington Is Concerned Over Growing Iranian Influence

Members of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units

Baghdad and Tehran have signed a new agreement aiming to boost military and defense cooperation as well as counter-terrorism efforts.

On Sunday, Iraqi Defense Minister Maj. Gen. Erfan al-Hiyali and his Iranian counterpart Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan signed the agreement which would allow “cooperation and sharing experiences in the fields of fight against terrorism and extremism, border security, training, logistics, technical and military supports,” according to Iranian IRNA news agency.

Al-Hiyali arrived Tehran on Saturday at the invitation of the Iranian authorities.

In July, US President Donald Trump voiced concern over the growing Iranian influence in conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq and in the Middle East as well.

According to Trump, new threats were emerging from “rogue regimes like North Korea, Iran and Syria and the governments that finance and support them”.

    I wonder how neo-cons feel knowing they destroyed all of Iraq, but left a window open for Iran to take over and rebuild the country.

      I agree. I don’t think that the US quite understand foreign policy yet. Talk about pressing the self destruct button.

      Sanctions on Russia and import duties on Chinese steel – WHOOPS

      Sanctions on Companies dealing with Russia regards European energy – WHOOPS

      Just placing Thaad missile system in South Korea – WHOOPS

      F00..cking idiots.

        oh im sure they understand it, they are just under the thumb of the zionists who use the US to do their bidding. none of these things would help america, only hurt it, so obviously they are being done by people who are putting israel first, not america

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          The effluence from sewer pipes is not really good for those downstream , it means something flowing out .

    As a Patriot and follower of Christ, I fully 100% support the trustworthy Monotheist of the Iranian-Republic to rebuild and protect the good Monotheist-Iraqi people!
    The Kabalist religion that dominates Israel is composed of the believe that all people are evil, and God is unknown and unknowable.
    And that Goyim must be killed as a sacrifice to God.
    These is really what the Kabalist books of the Talmud teach all anti-Christ-Jews.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Also if Iran really cares about defend Iraq at all.
    They will place anti-are defenses across all of Iraq.
    Like 200 AA defense positions from the south to the east to the west and the north.
    Defend Iraq with many advanced anti air missiles and radars like Iran is defended.

      The priority for Iran is to install Air Defenses across Syria to prevent the Israeli controlled US led “Terror Axis” countries from destroying killing Syrians and destroying its Infrastructure.

    “Growing influence” lol, the US lost almost all its influence in the Middle East and now they start to worry…. Made Turkey hostile by their coup attempt, gave Qatar to Iran by having the Saudis try and force them, lost Syria and Iraq by war (and gave Iran access to the Mediterranean in the process), lost Yemen by war, lost Egypt by supporting the MB.
    Now we’ll have civil war soon in Jordan and Saudi Arabia and they still haven’t read the writing on the wall. Putin and Iran must be have been rolling on the floor laughing these last few years.
    And now Trump is going to start an economic war on China, Russia and pretty much the rest of the world (if they even try to sanction Germany now) with his bankrupt and divided country…..

    • Thegr8rambino

      yea and none of this would have happened if the zionists werent in control, we would not be in the middle east and we would be trillions of dollars richer, why cant i have been born in that parallel universe? lol

      • Rodger

        Yeah, and now the US is of to a trade war, armed with an overdrawn credit card and a HUGE army it can’t use, with China that has all the cards. It’s pretty weird.

        • Thegr8rambino

          And sad/unfortunate for average Americans :(
