butterfly American research website: Announcing the withdrawal of troops from Iraq is a diplomatic trick
Tuesday 27 July 2021 | 01:14 PM American research website – Announcing the withdrawal of troops from Iraq is a diplomatic trickA report by the American Atlantic Council website, which specializes in research and strategic studies, confirmed that the announcement of the US withdrawal from Iraq is a useful diplomatic trick for the Biden administration .
The report stated that, “In contrast to the complete withdrawal from Afghanistan, the announcement of the withdrawal from Iraq is tantamount to rebalancing the removal of combat forces and their replacement with trainers who will continue to build the capabilities of the Iraqi security services .”
And he added, “But that announcement is actually just a “useful diplomatic trick” of the Biden administration. Of course, the United States should advise the Iraqis, and not send combat forces on patrols through Baghdad, but they are not doing these patrols in Baghdad at the moment .
He continued, “What will likely remain the most important elements of the current mission, which are the advanced capabilities of US special operations and the US military’s link with Iraqi forces and Iraqi politicians, and all of this can be done under the title of the advisory mission, or whatever is more beneficial to Al-Kazemi and the US administration to name it .”
butterfly The report noted that “Russia and China will attempt to argue that the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq indicates that the United States is not the best option to be a strategic partner, but that the United States has in fact poured its military resources into the Iraqi and Afghan security forces so that they have the opportunity,
if they choose, to protect Their countries, while the Russian and Chinese governments prefer that the security services in the countries in which they operate are weak so that their influence in influence and exploitation of resources in the country cannot be challenged,” according to the allegations of the report. aynaliraqnews.com
