US Staying in Iraq, Oil Theft, Regime Change and World War, Duff on Press TV (video repaired)


Iraq’s President Barham Salih and his U-S counterpart Donald Trump have discussed reducing the American troop presence in the war-battered country.

During the meeting, Trump said he would draw down American forces in Iraq in an unprecedented way.

They met on the sidelines of the annual Davos gathering of the world’s business and political leaders in Switzerland. Salih and Trump also discussed the importance of respecting the demands of the Iraqi people to preserve the country’s sovereignty.

In early January, Iraq’s parliament passed a resolution to end the presence of foreign troops in the country. That followed the U-S assassination of top Iranian commander, Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and his companions on Iraqi soil.

  1. Suckers, everyone of them. Enlisted for a paycheck and now they’re headed off to die for israel.
    The greatest propaganda campaign ever created was to give the illusion that enlisting into the military was defending America.
    The truth is, it’s about doing the dirty work for the Rothschilds.
    Pres. Washington warned us against large standing armies and the ill affects it would cause. Then along came Smedly Butler and exposed the game.
    If someone really wants to serve America, they should become firemen, EMTs, (not police), there is a coming shortage of airline pilots and even truck drivers.

  2. Hey, what’s this, Uncle Gordie ? “I’m not talking about the guys who do the cooking…” ? Although it was in peace-time and most of my time was spent on fatigues, washing the pots, with one sweep of the pen, you have had the audacity to diss our great brotherhood of Dobermans (Ernie Bilko’s truty lieutenant).and nerds. Have at you, you blackguard !

  3. Then Donald Trump and the American people should not be surprised or angered when Iraqi patriots begin using American soldiers for target practice. They should not be surprised when explosions destroy American tanks, planes and HumVees. They should not be surprised or angered at the Iraqi people when American soldiers begin to return to the states in flag draped coffins by the hundreds.
    They have only the Trump administration to blame and the influence of the ultra zionist neo-cons and further, they have themselves to blame, especially those who voted for this miserable human lump.
    The American people have themselves to blame for remaining ignorant and allowing themselves to be cowed by zionist gangsters.
    If tRump actually triggers another major war in the middle east, who then, will the American people blame? Whose fault will it be if nuclear tipped warheads reduce a number of of America’s cities to rubble? Just who is it that promotes so much mendacity, hubris and hypocrisy? Is it Iran or Iraq or Syria?
    How much longer are we, the people going to put up with this nonsense and demand a real draining of the swamp?

    • Sir , ONE Huge Fact is That The replacement Governments propped up by American interventionist invasions is that those governments are Total Crooks and now the Iraqis miss Saddams Era and Similarly the Libyans now miss the ghaddafi era , Whatever you say but those ” Dictators ” had a complete Working System in Place taking care of Every citizen BUT Now those ” Liberated ” countries are in the deepest Financial shits ……

    • It just proves that Americans are easily taken in by any carney barker that comes along. The rise of the Jim Jones suicide cult of American evangelical Armageddon/rapture and Xtian zionism are fine examples.
      So what does this indicate about the general population? Are they that gullible, that stupid, that easily brainwashed?
