Iraq Says French Troops Have Left The Country

The French Task Force Wagram and 🇺🇸 U.S. Marines fire French artillery in support of Operation RoundUp in Al Qa’im, Iraq. By the p fficial Twitter for U.S. Central Command (@CENTCOM)

The Iraqi military announced on March 25 that French troops operating in the framework of the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS have withdrawn from the country.

Maj. Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf, a spokesman for the Commander in Chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces, said French troops withdrew as a result of agreements with the Iraqi government. The spokesman didn’t provide any additional information on the matter.

“French troops have left Iraqi territory, the coalition also evacuated an air base,” the Iraqi News Agency (INA) quoted Maj. Gen. Khalaf as saying.

Last week, the U.S.-led coalition announced the suspension of all training activates with Iraqi security forces to prevent coronavirus widespread. The coalition said that all of “training-focused forces” will be returning to their countries within a few weeks.

The coalition also announced that it will be “repositioning” some of its units within the country, in bases controlled by the Iraqi military. This decision could be related to the recent rocket attacks on coalition bases in Iraq.

French troops in Iraq were involved in the fight against ISIS and in the training of local forces. Their withdrawal will not likely have a significant impact on the coalition’s presence in the country.

    Their withdrawal will not likely have a significant impact on the coalition’s presence in the country.

    Oh yes it will, it saps the morale of the troops staying behind and having to deal with militants’ rockets coming down on them.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      To be honest the froggies did not have much choice and used the coronavirus as a fig leaf to cut and run as the occupation cowards are coming under daily rocket attacks and can not even leave the bunkers due to fear of IEDs and massive headache.

      • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

        Yes, I know that. The froggies were “persuaded” by the empire-in-decline to join the coalition of “the good”, which they did with a handful of soldiers. So, their pull-out will not have a military effect as such, and the U.S. will laugh it off. But what it does is it stays in the minds of the soldiers, and gives the other coalition of “the good” partners food for thought, to say the least. And that, in and of itself is worrying for them. And if/when others start to pull out, which is not too far-fetched with those rocket attacks, then it becomes a serious issue.

          This is best time to chase the Americunt arseholes whose coronavirus backfired on them, out of the region. There is detailed report by Chinese health ministry on how the Americunt military brought the bio-warfare to China.

          WUHAN OUTBREAK: CHINA DEMANDS AN HONEST ACCOUNTING

          By Thomas Hon Wing Polin | March 22, 2020

          It is now virtually certain that COVID-19 was brought to Wuhan by
          American troops taking part in the city’s World Military Games last Oct.
          18-27.

          The 300-strong US contingent stayed 300 meters from the Huanan
          Seafood Market where China’s outbreak began (see map below) at the Wuhan
          Oriental Hotel.

          Five of the US troops developed a fever on Oct. 25 and were taken to an infectious-diseases hospital for treatment.

          42 employees of the Oriental Hotel were diagnosed with COVID-19,
          becoming the first cluster in Wuhan. At the time only 7 people from the
          market had been thus diagnosed (and treated before the hotel staff). All
          7 had contact with the 42 from the hotel. From this source, the virus
          spread to the rest of China.

          The American Military Games team trained at a location near Fort
          Detrick, the military’s viral lab closed down by the CDC in July for
          various deficiencies.

          The big question now is whether the transmission was planned, or accidental.

          Chinese authorities are awaiting an explanation from US authorities.

            Covid-19 is a bit off topic, but I’ll reply ;-)

            I am increasingly convinced it was a planned biological warfare attack on China and Iran that backfired terribly. The OUTLAW, psychopath-run, blackmailing, sanctioning, belligerent, rogue empire-in-decline thought it would be able to control it and keep it limited to those 2 countries, as a result of which the empire-in-decline was unprepared for the virus on its home turf.

            “israel” was involved in engineering this attack, and developing a vaccine that it would make a financial killing with.

            https://www.strategic-culture.ORG/news/2020/03/05/who-made-coronavirus-was-it-us-israel-or-china-itself/ :
            Scientists at “israel’s” Galilee Research Institute are now claiming that they will have a vaccine against coronavirus in a few weeks which will be ready for distribution and use within 90 days. The institute is claiming that it has been engaged in four years of research on avian coronavirus funded by Israel’s Ministries of Science & Technology and Agriculture. They are claiming that the virus is similar to the version that has infected humans, which has led to breakthroughs in development through genetic manipulation, but some scientists are skeptical that a new vaccine could be produced so quickly to prevent a virus that existed only recently. They also have warned that even if a vaccine is developed it would normally have to be tested for side effects, a process that normally takes over a year and includes using it on infected humans.

            https://www.jpost.COM/HEALTH-SCIENCE/Israeli-scientists-In-three-weeks-we-will-have-coronavirus-vaccine-619101 :
            “Let’s call it pure luck,” Dr. Chen Katz, MIGAL’s biotechnology group leader, said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”
            Yeah, sure, pure coincidence.

            BTW, the U.S. participants in the World Military Games came 35th in the overall ranking !! Why were 3rd rate “athletes” sent?? The answer is clear: they were sent for other reasons than sports.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Washington (CNN)A
            push by the US State Department to include the phrase “Wuhan virus” in a
            joint statement with other Group of Seven members following a meeting
            of foreign ministers on coronavirus on Wednesday was rejected, resulting in separate statements and division in the group.

            “What the State Department has suggested is a red line,” a European diplomat
            said. “You cannot agree with this branding of this virus and trying to
            communicate this to a world power that is facing a pandemic on its own”.

  • LR captain

    did France not surrender 2 weeks after their country was invaded?

    • occupybacon

      Also they fled from Russian ‘white’ army first when they were fighting the ‘reds’ leaving the Brits uncovered

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The Americunts and the devious limey gits armed the “whites” just like the current Wahhabi scum in the middle east, luckily the Bolsheviks were able to kick their dumb arse and they all ended up in the west, the moron Boris Johnson is one of their pathetic descendants.

        • occupybacon

          And those Bolsheviks you are supporting, were the same as the first half of your nickname.

    • Wayne Nicholson

      Yes they did. They also nearly revolted during WW1 during the battle of Verdun. A lot of left leaning Frenchmen were tired of dying in capitalist wars and that sentiment carried through to WW2. The German army faced a similar situation in 1918-19 and nearly lost the country to the Reds. Why do you think Hitler and the boys had such a hate on for Commies? They never forgave them “jewish bolsheviks” for the stab in the back.

    • rightiswrong rightiswrong

      I wouldn’t call that a surrender.

      More like an invitation to Germany to travel East and not worry about Britain and France forcing Germany to fight on two fronts.
      Thankfully, that backfired, and now they themselves are puppets for Hitlers backers.

    I hope for the Iraqis that them Frogs can find their way back home…because Frogs can’t read friggin’ maps & get lost all the time….

    • FlorianGeyer

      This is a true story,HH. A friend of mine is in a low risk ‘ Open Prison’ that is built on an old WW2 US base in the UK. The grounds were once part of a Stately Home parkland and have lots of old trees and grassland.

      Last year a Frenchman was on a camping trip and he parked in the visitor carpark and then hopped over a 4ft fence and set up his tent under a tree in the prison grounds. He was rudely interrupted by two prison officers later on :)

      The Frenchman thought it was a camping site:)

      • Hasbara Hunter

        Long time ago I was hikin’ on Corsica…climbed a fence & in the morning when I woke up I was surrounded by Armed Legionairs…asking what the fuck I was doing there….it turned out I had made camp on a French Foreign Legion base….shit happens

        • Hishamsbr

          If you had a small weapon, you could have easily occupied the base.

          • Hasbara Hunter

            At least finish my breakfast…

            just checked it… Camp Raffalli the headquarters of the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment of the French Foreign Legion at Calvi in Corsica…..So whenever you’re in Corsica I can recommend their Camping 😂😂😂

        • FlorianGeyer

          You are lucky they did not get you to sign a recruitment form, HH. :)

          • Hasbara Hunter

            They accept everyone in the French Foreign Legion…except me…I fuckn wonder why….Bloody arrogant cocks….must have been my French ‘cause it sucks…

          • FlorianGeyer

            Lol.

  • verner

    one thing is certain and that is that the syrians won’t miss them an awful lot, except the soon to be extinct – the sdf.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is time to hit the Americunt arseholes with IEDs daily in Syria. They simply are in a bind as their virus is now making the Americunt shithole the virus capital of the world and many Americunts will perish as the mean, nasty and greedy evil bastards have no universal health care system. Their military is made up of vulnerable trailer trash who are demoralized losers and will not fight at all. They want to go home as the trailer parks are dying in thousands. KARMA IS A BITCH NAMED POMPEO!

      • verner

        agree, ied’s is what will drive them all the way back to mom and apple pie and disintegrated infrastructure and no healthcare and inadequate schooling and a rotten judicial system and meth and fentanyl and the privatized prisonsystem – what not to like. that’s the american dream for the under educated white trash from the flyover states!

  • John Wallace

    The ANZAC’s are or were at camp Taji training the Iraqi army. Their contract is about to end so most likely be renewed. They do nothing but train the army as asked to by the Iraqi government when ISIS was in full flow,

    • Zionism = EVIL

      They better leave or will end up in body bags. The Ameriucunts are demoralized and very vulnerable and Iran has made the strategic decsion to expel them from the region. The new generation of Iranian military men are not the old school kind and diplomatic types like the assassinated General Soleimani. The guys running the IRGC now are battle hardened warriors who have been fighting all over the region and know the Americunt weaknesses.

    • Vitex

      Hmm…dunno. I think the SAS are there and they’re not answerable to anyone. Except perhaps George Soros

  • Assad must stay

    good keep leaving

  • Zionism = EVIL

    China’s leaders have long suspected US military involvement in the Wuhan
    outbreak but were determined to stop the disease before pursuing the
    Americans for an honest accounting. Now the Chinese are angrily demanding answers from the Pentagon for the bio-warfare unleashed on them and their allies. Italy and Spain are collateral damage due to the similar DNA profile to Iranians.

  • goingbrokes

    Good, as long as they haven’t just moved to Syrian territory.
