butterfly Biden asks for the help of Iraqi intelligence
2021-07-25 07:50 Biden asks for the help of Iraqi intelligenceShafaq News/ The American newspaper “Washington Times” reported that US President Joe Biden intends, during his scheduled meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi in the coming hours, to request stronger help in confronting the phenomenon of drone attacks on US forces present in Iraq and Syria.
And the American newspaper stated, in a report translated by Shafak News Agency, that “Biden may not have enough influence to overcome Al-Kazemi’s fears of retaliatory responses from Iran,” quoting analysts who indicated that there are several things Al-Kazemi can do for Biden.
And the American newspaper quoted a professor at the University of Florida in Atlanta, Robert Rabil, as saying that “Iraq will not take a hard stance on matters that are not within its interests,” adding that “the Iraqi prime minister is pro-American, but he is also patriotic and pro-Iraq, and he realizes that he cannot make Iran is an enemy.”
Since Biden took office last January, there have been at least eight drone attacks and 17 missile attacks against US forces in Iraq and Syria.
Also, an attack took place earlier this month on an Iraqi air base housing US soldiers, injuring two of them.
In response to these attacks, Biden twice ordered air strikes on pro-Iranian militia sites operating in Syria, including one near the Iraqi border, according to the Washington Times.
butterfly The newspaper indicated, “Al-Kazemi has been reluctant so far to take a stronger position, for fear of a possible response and its reflection on his country,” and quoted Rabil as saying that “Al-Kazemi will not go in the opposite direction to Iran.”
Rabil explained, “Al-Kazemi does not have a political party, and therefore he needs to work within the framework of consensus, and he wants to develop Iraq, but it faces many challenges,” noting that “using Iraq to settle the account between the United States and Iran will not help.”
And the newspaper considered, that “what complicates the matter further, is the tense relations that exist between Iraq and the United States since the era of former President Donald Trump, who gave the order to assassinate the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, General Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Forces, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, near Baghdad Airport.”
A new beginning
butterfly But Biden, according to the newspaper, is seeking “a new beginning for US-Iraqi relations,” and it seems that Al-Kazemi is consistent with that trend, and his visit to the White House tomorrow is a sign of warm relations.
It is expected that Al-Kazemi will refuse to use a more strict tone against the drone attacks, and the American newspaper saw that there are many things that Al-Kazemi can do in order to help the United States.
Al-Kazemi can, according to the newspaper, “share with Washington the information collected by Iraqi intelligence on the ground about militias and march attacks, as well as work in the region to help Biden overcome obstacles to reviving the nuclear agreement concluded by Barack Obama with Iran.”
And she added that there are indications that Tehran is working to curb attacks on American forces in order to re-engage with the nuclear agreement, and here, Rabel considered that “the march attacks appear to be aimed at sending a message to the United States and causing chaos to a certain degree that does not frustrate the negotiations.”
The newspaper concluded its report, quoting Rabel as saying, “If you look at the attacks, they do not intend to cause strong responses. They want to say that they dealt with the United States on their terms, without causing a strong response.” shafaq.com

Today, Sunday, Member of Parliament Yonadam Kanna warned of the danger of the immediate and sudden exit of US forces from Iraq, ruling out a repetition of the scenario of what happened in Afghanistan in Iraq.
Kanna said in an interview with Alsumaria News, “The situation of Iraq differs greatly from Afghanistan, and therefore there should be a scheduling of the withdrawal of American forces, not a sudden and immediate withdrawal, given that security experts know very well that Iraq is a prisoner of American weapons, whether by air or land. Therefore, the negotiator The Iraqi must find a gradual alternative to cover the void left by the American exit.”
Kanna added, “We do not believe that Biden will go to the same options that he made in Afghanistan, because Iraq is closer to the center of conflicts in the Middle East region, and there is greater importance to him for Washington than Afghanistan, in addition to Washington’s more interests in Iraq and the Gulf, whether in energy and oil, therefore.” All these factors will not allow Baden to go to the same options as what happened in Afghanistan.”
He continued, “The immediate exit of the US forces will lead to a significant weakness in the ability of the Iraqi military forces to defend the country because most of the weapons today in our forces are American and the air cover is American, so we do not know in the event of such an exit what will happen from terrorist groups, as happened in 2014 or from neighboring countries,”
stressing “the importance of dealing with this file slowly, and that there are future alternatives to protect our airspace and land from aircraft, heavy weapons, technology and defenses, especially since there is a strategic agreement between Iraq and America that has not been fully implemented and through which these gaps should be addressed.” alsumaria.tv

butterfly Al-Kadhimi: Iraq no longer needs the presence of US forces
7-25-2021 Al-Kadhimi – Iraq no longer needs the presence of US forcesBAGHDAD – The Iraqi Prime Minister announced that his country no longer needs American combat forces to fight the Islamic State, indicating that the Iraqi security forces and army are capable of defending the country.
The Iraqi prime minister stated that the official time frame for the redeployment of US forces will depend on the outcome of talks with US officials, as it relates to the readiness of the Iraqi forces, which showed that they are able to carry out independent missions against the Islamic State, according to what was quoted by the Associated Press.
Observers believe that Al-Kazemi’s announcement comes in the context of messages of reassurance to the United States about the ability of the Iraqi security forces, which are supported by the United States in the face of ISIS, especially with the increasing speculation about the possibility of announcing a timetable for the withdrawal of the international coalition forces, which is the main demand of the pro-Iranian militias in Iraq. .
Al-Kazemi said, “What we want from the American presence in Iraq is to support our forces in training, developing their efficiency and capabilities, and in security cooperation.”
butterfly Al-Kazemi’s comments come before he heads to the United States, where he is scheduled to meet President Joe Biden on Monday in a fourth round of strategic talks.
It is assumed that the strategic dialogue between Baghdad and Washington will lead to setting a timetable for the withdrawal of the international coalition, and there are still about 3,500 foreign soldiers on Iraqi soil, including 2,500 Americans, but the completion of the withdrawal process may take years.
On the seventh of last April, Baghdad announced an agreement with Washington to transform the mission of the international coalition forces from combat to training and advisory. Later, Baghdad announced the formation of a committee comprising leaders of the Ministry of Defense to negotiate with the American side to set the mechanisms and timelines for foreign military withdrawal.
In January 2020, the Iraqi parliament voted in favor of a resolution demanding the removal of foreign forces, including the United States, from the country, following the killing of the Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani and the Chief of Staff of the Popular Mobilization Forces, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, in a US air strike near Baghdad International Airport.
butterfly The file of ending the US presence in Iraq has always been the subject of wide political debates in Iraq, where officials believe that the exit of US forces will open the way for Iran and its arms to increase its influence, at a time when the Iraqi government is facing pressure from Tehran and its proxies demanding the removal of foreign forces from Iraq. rawabetcenter.com
