The US military has been facing increasing pressure from local resistance forces and pro-Iranian groups in Iraq.

On August 21, an improvised explosive device (IED) reportedly struck a vehicle of company working with the U.S.-led coalition in Aweerij, south of the capital, Baghdad. The vehicle was destroyed and its driver was killed. Pro-Iranian sources even claimed that the entire supply convoy of the US-led coalition was destroyed, and three Fijian private military contractors working for the U.S. military were killed. These claims have not been confirmed by any visual evidence so far.

On August 22, another IED attack hit a logistical convoy of the US-led coalition near Baghdad. This time the incident happened in Ghazaliya, on a highway leading to the al-Shuala district. The video from the site showed that at least one vehicle was damaged.

On August 23, an IED explosion targeted a convoy of US forces withdrawing from Camp Taji just a few hours after the US military officially handed the military base to Iraqi government forces. The base used to host 2,000 US troops. Most of them are set to be withdrawn in the coming days.

According to local sources, local Shiite resistance groups and Iranian-linked forces were behind these attacks. Iran and its Iraqi allies vowed to expel US forces from Iraq after the assassination of Iranian Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani and Deputy-Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in a US drone strike on January 3, 2020.

On August 20, Iran even unveiled two missiles with named after Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. The missiles were revealed on the occasion of the National Defense Industry Day. The first missile “Martyr Hajj Qassem Soleimani” is ballistic with a range of up to 1,400 km. The second weapon, named “Martyr Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis,” is a cruise missile with a range of up to 1,000 km. Iran claimed that both missiles are capable of penetrating advanced anti-missile systems.

Tehran considers its missile program to be among the cornerstones of the country’s defense capabilities. On January 8, 2020, Iran even publicly conducted a missile strike on US military bases in Iraq retaliating for the assassination of Soleimani and al-Muhandis in Baghdad. The naming of new Iranian missiles after these prominent commanders are likely a demonstration of the Iranian determination to continue its anti-US campaign in the region. Therefore, the pressure on US forces in Iraq will likely further increase in the near future.

amerikan cowards are unwanted

Iran, Russia, China and other nations should coordinate on other issues of global interest like narcotrafficking, and that requires putting religious moral nonsense aside to combat the global Ziocorporate terrorists profiteering off illegal narcotrafficking by legalisation and consumption reduction by state and public health policy of regulation of production and distribution. A huge hit for the Zioterrorists’ ability to be funding CIA coups and terrorist operations needs to be strategised.

tzatz

Jargon laden bs …

JIMI JAMES

Maybe but the cia/zionazis will hit on them because they infact prefer usa to remain in there to defend the zio/nazi/saudie dollar,however that will fail as salarys,troll jobs will cease to exist!!!

shylockracy

There’s now a greater probabilty than ever that liberation forces in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon can get a proper response capability in the face of global Ziocorporate terrorist aggression and designs for the region. Iran’s official Fars agency reports that Putin may finally start actively acting against Ziowahhabi schemes, as there’s never been any evidence that integration of Russia with US-led Ziocorporate terrorists ever benefited Russia.

When does the pro Iranian force called Hezbollah going to respond against us like they promised? my uniforms and backpack are already ready and waiting for the order. I hope Nasrallah tests us, his minions in SL would be the first ones to pay the price before we come to get his head in Beirut.

Traiano Welcome

Last time there was a fuss on the border you were nowhere else but online posting around the clock.

Admit it: You’re not fit for military service so ended up as “keyboard fodder”.

<>

You have no idea what I’m fit or capable for, also 4 of their guys were sent to hell the last time they got closer to our border. This time we are going to punish all the Shias in SL, no one will have immunity like in 2006. They aim to kill Israelis, we will kill them in bigger numbers and we will enjoy it too.

Traiano Welcome

I know you’re not capable of rational thought and not very creative or analytical. And that you spend every second posting smack online while real men do the fighting.

“This time we are going to punish all the Shias in SL, no one will have immunity like in 2006”

HA. HA. HA.

Isn’t that exactly what you tried in 2006, 2000 and 1983? Failed each time.

This time Tel Aviv gets turned into and ash heap.

Better stick to tear gassing hospital patients, that’s all the idf is good for:

In 2006 they had only 1200 dead, most SL shia villagers were spared even though they helped Hezbollah fighters. We do our own fighting including me, I don’t need to tell you what I’ve done. You liked the Beirut explosion? I did, now expect it dozens more like that in a war.

Daily Beatings

“In 2006 they had only 1200 dead …”

Need to kill some more women and children to keep those numbers. Choosen people my ass.

Whoever helps Hezbollah needs to die, no discrimination.

HiaNd

They are only grandchildren of converts to Judaism.
They are “chosen” in nothing!
They can be “chosen” only as worst criminals, nothing else.

Traiano Welcome

I like Haifa explosion. Let the Old Man of the Mountain explain:

Okay, fucker.

Great comeback, now go cry to mama.

I don’t need to, I don’t cry.

Raptar Driver

Yes as the song goes, big girls don’t cry.

<>

So you admit you’re a girl? I’m sure you know the lyrics. Anyway like I’ve said, just waiting for an order. You need to say thank God every morning we have Bibi in power, otherwise we would make them and Hamas a good example to the world.

Raptar Driver

I’ll tell you what when you go up against Serbs or the Russians then we can talk about your military abilities.
And don’t forget to thank your god Satan.

<>

Why we would go against Serbs? I for one love Serbs and respect them. I also don’t have a beef with Russia as long as they don’t arm Iranian forces or shoot at our troops. I do have a big problem with the SAA, IRGC and their proxies. If it was up to me they would have been long gone, and anyone else that supports them. Sadly I am just an officer in the IDF and not the policy maker.

Russia’s pilots manned Egyptian marked planes during the late ‘60’s early ‘70’s during the ‘War of Attrition’ … they were shot Out of the sky … the Israeli pilots besting the Soviet pilots … eh?

Come here and try me, I might surprise you.

S Melanson

I can understand resistance to occupation, but when occupying forces are leaving, let them go. US foreign policy has been a tug of war between isolationist and globalists. Withdrawal signals the isolationists have the upper hand and Iraqi insurgency should signal back to US with cessation of hostilities towards departing forces to show approval of policy direction.

shylockracy

Would you care to point out any actual “isolationists” since the US invaded and stole 60% of Mexico in the 1840s? And I mean actual ones, not Trumpet-style demagogues.

HiaNd

These are live FREE lessons for Syrians, how serious people make things done the right way !
Watch and learn and above all try to do the SAME !

Joaquin

Syria has way more to lose than Iraq at the moment

HiaNd

So tell me why is Iraqi freedom so much cheaper than Syrian?
Iraq has already lost 1 million people through 2 US aggression’s and economic blockade.
And I don’t even count all dead because of Israeli-US created ISIS terrorism(Caliphate)

They still get killed thanks to the US occupation and US supported ISIS, Al Qaeda presence in Iraq ever since

Joaquin

That’s why. Iraq has lost so much that the state is very weak and can fall easily, as it has happened many times. Whereas in Syria the state is stroger, well consolidated within the syrian society and collective thinking, and people don’t wanna risk losing the only thing that brings stability and prosperity. In Syria changes go slowly and one has to be patient. But they do come

HiaNd

With all due respect Joaqine that is little bit out of reality.Syria has practically non existent economy while Iraq still has important revenues from oil.

Iraq is practically liberated (with no complete control over Kurds) while Syria is still occupied and with no control over Kurds at all.
I do not need other examples

Joaquin

What you say about oil revenues is a good point, but Iraq is still an occupied country with not only US/NATO bases but also turkish presence in it’s kurdistan.
I hope they can kick out the US once and for all now, it’s the most important thing after the bombing near Baghdad airport, but honestly I think there’s a long Road ahead still.

Syria has not lost its statehood during this war eventhough it’s occupied from many sides as you well said. I think this is the biggest difference and the reason why it doesn’t want to confront the US (yet). But it will come

HiaNd

“Syria has not lost its statehood during this war even though it’s occupied from many sides”
You have made good point there I give you that !
Iranian support in Iraq is strong since Shia community is strong also.
So ther resistance to US “soft” (less visible than in Syria) occupation is much stronger and more resilient.
In Syria Iran doesn’t have that much support (small Shia minority) from the population who limits their support to SAA mostly.
So “resistance” against US and Kurds of local Arab Sunni tribes (whose members were also members of ISIS) is pathetic

Assad must stay

Hahahaha

LibertyIsGreat

Wow! What a magnificent military planning, execution, and victory. This took months to plan and prepare.

Arabs, Muslims, Shia, Sunni, etc can kill each other as long as you want. You attack us again in the US and we will be back.

PZIVJ

“You attack us again in the US”
And who do you think did the 9-11 attack, was it Iraqi operation under Saddam Hussein?

LibertyIsGreat

All Saddam had to do was let us in and go anywhere and anytime and he would still be in power but he to pretend he has mass weapons to stop Iran. Terrorist don’t care about nationalities and we don’t either.

Arabs terrorist think the same way across all Arab countries and they hates Israel and US so we don’t care whether an Iraqi passport holder wasn’t one of the suicide bombers.

PZIVJ

Supposed WMD was just a lie by the west.
Perhaps they could not prove or show evidence (classified) that Saddam used his large intel agency to take out the towers on 9-11. Using a false flag operation involving Saudi jihadist?

<>

Exactly.

PZIVJ

Israel supported the invasion of Iraq.
And now you are screwed, not smart on your part. :/

<>

Saddam was actually good for us, I personally never supported taking him down. Iraq was a stable country under the Sunnis, now look what a shithole it has become under the Shias. Every country that has Shias doesn’t have stability – Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan and so on. Even Iranians hate their own corrupted mullah regime. As for Israel, we just need a brave leader to give us the order to wipe all the shia scums in SL, if only we had Ariel Sharon again…

HiaNd

Putin did it with Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction :)

LibertyIsGreat

We already control KSA, UAE, Egypt, so invading them makes zero sense. Iraq was only place that didn’t follow the rules and so he got his head in a noose. Hopefully you learn the lesson.

JIMI JAMES

You havn’t got anything other than debt,besides your saudie/dolla is doomed!

LibertyIsGreat

Tell your buddies in Iran you are losers. You have nothing but terrorist in Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen. You can’t fight a war and win.

HiaNd

When you leave there will be no terrorists in Iraq

You are integral part of every Islamic terrorism on the planet.
You and IsraHell have created ISIS and CIA has created Al Qaeda and you control them and give them weapons and help them in their terrorist actions in Syria and Iraq

You have already lost every war this included, just sit and wait dollar implosion riots and civil war in US

<>

Let him bark man, I also enjoy reading his deluded comments about how Israel is going to become another Iranian province. But when it comes to a war, suddenly they hide in their holes like Nasrallah and other terrorist leaders. Stay safe in the U.S, and don’t let the Islamic pigs raise their heads. Goodluck bro.

LibertyIsGreat

Yeah, I have dealt with his kind. The same useless comments. It’s so predictable.

JIMI JAMES

You lied! Oh well just more hell on yous,there shall be no peace for you liars!

LibertyIsGreat

That was 2003 and we are 17 years later and we have better technology and drones. We don’t need to invade. We learned that it was all hype having 4th largest army in the world means nothing. It was a house of cards that fell in a few weeks because it was all fake and that is the same thing with Iran.

We can push buttons from Tampa, FL and fly drones and bombers from an island few miles away and wipe you out. We don’t need to waste one life on Iran. It’s not worth it.

LibertyIsGreat

Your making fun of Sunni people tells me your a Muslim Iranian Shia who hates Arab Muslim Sunnis. Got it. This is why Muslim world has been a disaster and constantly fighting each other for 1400 years because your ideas are only based on your tribe and sect.

Don’t worry about the US. You know nothing about it. If you don’t live here and participate in every day life and talk to people then you sound dumb and ignorant.

JIMI JAMES

Fk your racism rant poof,you got nothing going anymore you losers lost it all!

JIMI JAMES

Hey whore 4th largest of middle east not world,this is proof you sprogbreath!

LibertyIsGreat

Hey Jimi, what’s the matter? You seem angry today? Did you take your medication?

JIMI JAMES

Tell your bumchums gimp yous never won anything other than debt + more hell!

Icarus Tanović

If things are going this direction on Americans can pick up goods and chalets and gtf out of Iraq.

igybundy

PRO-IRANIAN FORCES?? SF is getting to be a racist site… What have their beliefs got to do with anything? They are Iraqi’s.. Why not tell us their religion and the size of the house they live in while at it and of they drink alcohol or meet unmarried women…

tzatz

Resistance is futile …

JIMI JAMES

Cia coksoks noses outta joint,so now they must protest because their military is leaving,talk about trying to keep the military in iraq?I see.Rest assured either way the cia/deep states going down:

Rodney Loder

Always said it since I’ve been allowed to be on media internet, – nearly 6 years now, beat the maggot Jew queer zino pigs there, took me Jesus Christ 64 years to achieve that, that maggot Sid Loder that handed me over to Israel after murdering my mother failed at that point, – missiles are the Great Equalizer, submarines are OK but missiles particularly hypersonic are tops.
