BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – The U.S. military has moved its headquarters from central Iraq to the Al-Anbar Governorate in the western part of the country, Iraqi activists reported on Wednesday.

According to reports, the U.S. Special Forces has moved from the Balad Airbase in the Salaheddine Governorate to the Al-Assad Airbase in western Iraq.

Iraqi analyst, Haider Sumeiri, believes this latest move by the United States shows a “strong indication” that the battle for western Al-Anbar is coming.

Sumeiri is referring to Al-Qa’im in western Al-Anbar; this is the last border-town under the Islamic State’s (ISIL) control near Syria’s Deir Ezzor Governorate.

and then soon the war will end in Iraq as the remaining Daeshbags are pushed into Syria. If Al-Baghdadi gets captured or kill, it will be a huge bonus.

This US move is to block land connection Syria – Iraq. No time for Putin to think about ceasefires.
