BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The U.S. Army dispatched a new military convoy from Jordan to the Ayn Al-Assad Base in the Al-Anbar Governorate of western Iraq, the Al-Maaloumeh News Agency reported on Sunday.

According to the Iraqi publication, the U.S. not only dispatched troops to the Ayn Al-Assad Base, but they also transported a large amount of weapons to the border.

This report comes just a week after the U.S. sent their aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln, to the Persian Gulf region to protect their forces in the Middle East from an alleged Iranian threat.

The Al-Maaloumeh news website quoted the head of the Badr Organization’s office in al-Anbar as saying that the number of U.S. forces deployed in the Ayn al-Assad and al-Habaniyeh bases has increased to 10,000, adding that they have been supplied with the state-of-the-art weapons and military equipment.

The official said that the two bases also host the U.S. Marines who have been transferred recently from Syria to Iraq, noting that 90% of the U.S. soldiers in Iraq are combat forces and not considered military advisors.

Not at all, they’re not teaming with Iranians anymore, like they did for a short while in Iraq, although Zarqawi has bitten the hand that fed him… Or not? After all, al-Maliki ended putting up Shia death-squads (with the help of the infamous colonel James E. Steele who also has sinister records in El Salvador) which slaughtered Sunni families. Since Bremer had already fired all Baathists from state service and the army while these jobs were feeding most of Iraqi Sunnis under Saddam, this pushed them into Zarqawi’s arms and later in al-Baghdadi’s… In the end, if the Iranian regime… Read more »

When I say there are no good guys in this story, I’m not joking… BTW, al-Zawahiri had written a manuscript letter to Zarkawi ordering him to stop attacks on Shiites. US seized this letter…
Strange ways to support ISIS to have dropped a JDAM and a LGB on former ISIS’ leader’s house… Mark my words, if they find al-Baghdadi, he’ll end just like Zarqawi or Ossama. Was it to me to decide, well, as he likes sadism, he shouldn’t see objections at being eaten alive by swines, after all, he’s pro-death-penalty, isn’t he?

You surely know that nearly all the gear of Iraqi army was paid by US tax-payers, not by your taxes…
Oh, BTW, I hope you’re doing well with the 50% inflation.
Any way, either you’ll become an US stooge or you’ll become a martyr 🙂
Time will tell.

@Daeshbags-Sux, no mostly paid by us all – via the Bretton Woods financial system that was created to finance WWII and other wars.

Did not know India or that area has 50%.

The US will get that high inflation when we all quit Bretton Woods.

p.s. You either win the war or You win the peace and have the victors complain that they must buy Your goods because they are better. And that they have a trade deficit. LOL.

@Daeshbags-Sux, silly idea. Why should they?

The Al Asad Airbase is near the middle of Iraq and a logistical center for the fight against IS.

I’m not speaking about Iraqis, Stern 😉 I’m speaking about the terrorism funding state east of Iraq…

@Daeshbags-Sux, yes – about the religious legacy of the Qizilbash and Safavids.

Funding and founding terrorism is a way of life around there. Even the Westerners that venture there do it. So why single out the Mullahs?

LOL.

What I mean is, that it is not near the Syrian border or Iran. And that the place is a logistical hub mostly against IS. One weapon supply route to there goes IMHO from a Jordanian port.

@The 4 Minus idiots. The Al Asad Airbase is located in the Hīt District of the largely Sunni Al Anbar Governorate, about 100 miles (160 km) west of Baghdad. An Iraqi Armed Forces and United States armed forces base also used by other players in the region for the fight against IS.

Not close to the border IMHO.

p.s. You better know something before You vote down.

LOL. Maybe they should use Google to verify claims.

I do that by default if I lack specialized info.
