Iran poised to strike US forces, pulls militia chiefs out of Iraq. Trump: We have targeted 52 Iranian sites

Iran began gearing up for a revenge strike on US targets in Iraq on Saturday night, Jan 4, DEBKAfile’s exclusive military sources report. The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) took their medium-range ballistic missiles out of storage and began positioning them at various points along Iran’s border with Iraq, ready for launch. Their range covers most of the US bases in the country. Another strong indication that Tehran was poised to strike back for the death of the IRGC Al Qods chief Qssem Soleimani came from the hurried withdrawal during the day of most of the Iraq Shiite militia chiefs and their senior staff. They crossed the border into Iran and were taken to IRGC bases.

Saturday night, too, the Kata’ib Hezballah militia warned Iraqi army units and security agents to be out of US military facilities by Sunday 7 p.m. A red flag was unfurled over the revered Jamkaran Mosque of Qom, Iran’s religious center, denoting the Islamic Republic’s coming retaliation for the death of Qassem Soleimani at American hands.

Responding to Iran’s preparations for war, President Donald Trump warned in a series of tweets that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, “We have … targeted 52 Iranian sites, some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture… Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD.”  The figure 52 recalled the 52 American hostages held at the Tehran embassy by Shiite revolutionaries in 1979-81. It also raised the stakes against Tehran’s threat to strike “35 American targets, including warships in the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz and Tel Aviv.”

Some 3,000 US troops form the 82nd Airborne Division have been deployed to the Middle East, joining the 750 soldiers shipped earlier to Kuwait.

On Saturday morning, DEBKAfile reported that the US had begun targeting Iraq’s pro-Iranian militia chiefs after terminating their master

The US air force continued to hunt down pro-Iran militia chiefs early Saturday, Jan 4, after killing their master, thus revealing America’s follow-up tactics for ridding Baghdad of Tehran’s grip. Those tactics started unfolding 24 hours earlier. Killed alongside Qassem Soleimani, the mastermind of Iran’s network of proxies, was also Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, head of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) the umbrella grouping of Iran’s Shiite militias in Iraq.

Since cutting down their master, the Trump administration has clearly launched a systematic war to eliminate the militia chiefs through whom Tehran maintains its grip on Baghdad.

Early Saturday, another US air strike hit the convoy of Shebl al-Zaidi, head of the Imam Ali Battalions, near Camp Taji military compound north of Baghdad. Six people were killed, most likely including Al Zaidi and his lieutenants, according to US officials. The PMU while confirming the strike claimed it hit “a medical convoy” – evidently taken aback by the new tempo of American attacks.

Shebl al-Zaidi, reportedly one of the more vicious Shiite leaders, was jailed during the US occupation of Iraq, and has been photographed with Qassem Soleimani,

In any event, the US strike happened and it attested to the new orders issued to the US command in Iraq:  go on the offensive against the pro-Iranian Iraqi militias and target them with planes, helicopters or drones whenever their leaders try moving about on the roads and highways.

These tactics spearhead the Trump administration’s preset goals:

  1. To end the extremist Shiite militias’ control of Baghdad and push them out to the periphery.
  2.  To establish mainstream Iraqi government rule in the capital – initially under an American air force and military shield.
  3. To use the impetus created by the ending of Qassem Soleimani’s career and that of his Iraqi agent Al-Muhandis for terminating the reign of those militia chiefs and their hierarchies.

This extremely ambitious, long-term program, which relies on first-rate intelligence, is the Trump administration’s answer to the critics who claim that the high-risk assassination of Qassem Soleimani was performed without a strategy or follow-up planning.

It is most likely to be an American initiative without European coalition partners. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that European allies had not been as “helpful” as he had hoped over the Soleimani killing. Later, French President Emmanuel Macron urged those involved to act with “restraint,” while British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said de-escalation would be key. “The Brits, the French, the Germans all need to understand that what we did, what the Americans did, saved lives in Europe as well,” Pompeo said.

Nonetheless, coalition spokesman Col. Myles Coggins contradicted the Pentagon’s statement about the fresh air strike on Saturday, stating, “The OIR did NOT conduct airstrikes near Camp Taji (north of Baghdad) in recent days.”

Moving forward, the Pentagon assigned a first batch of 750 extra troops to the Middle East for the protection of American personnel, to be followed by 4,000 more.  DEBKAfile adds: A US brigade of 700 officers and men is on standby in Italy to fly to a military airfield made ready for its intake at Halat in north Lebanon, should it be necessary to defend the Beirut embassy against potential attack by the pro-Iran Hizballah militia of Lebanon.

    On 2 January 2020, U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said “the game has changed”, and stated that the U.S. would preemptively strike Iranian-backed paramilitary groups in Iraq if there were indications they were preparing to attack U.S. forces.

    This is the new music. Hey, it is simple: Islamic militias must adapt and dance on this tune now, or perish.

      Killing Gandi did not help british empire to hold india under its control.
      And now, After killing iraq’s shia leaders Iraq will not remain under American control for much longer. What ever the price will be for shia majority they will pay and in the end something like Gaza will happen and America will leave Iraq.

        “Truth seeker” Ghandi was murdered by a Hindu nationalist after the British had left India. Ghandi was also a pacifist, never having condoned violence. So you should study a little history before posting comments.

      This is a long fight to the death between the US and Iran for control of the Middle East. The Iranians are devious and should never be underestimated. A ground invasion of Iran is impossible so the US will only rely on air power. But I doubt it if any country, except Israel, would allow the US to conduct direct operations against Iran from its soil. This means the US losing its basis – and a lot of influence – in the Middle East. Iran now is not Iraq 2003.

        Iran is struggling to control the Middle East. The US is NOT. The US is simply maintaining the strategic balance of interests in the area. The free flow of commerce (read OIL!) is at stake when a hegemonic force seeks to dominate. Such was the case in 1999 when Iraq began its move to become the hegemon controlling the oil-based economies of first Kuwait, then Saudi Arabia. Now Iran is following in Iraq’s footsteps. Iran will as surely fail as Iraq did.

        Do not equate Iran with the US in either military capacity or determination. Iran is a failed state. The mullocracy is in disintegration. Any foolish action to try to humiliate or coerce the US president into capitulating to Iran’s desperate agenda will only hasten the demise of the Iranian terrorist government.

        40 years of terrorism is quite enough. Iran’s theocracy is on life support and its current thrashing about will be the final nail in the coffin of an aberration of history. The people of Iran are fed up with the insurgency – much of which was/is supported by Afghanis brought into Iran in the late 70s by revolutionaries. Iran had best shrink back to within its borders and STOP trying to be King of the Mountain. It will fail if it follows through on its empty threats, and the mullocracy will finally be dumped into the ashbin of history.

The Younger Generation is on waiting stand by to not help the Regime they Hate & Demand Change! One can see that too, as the Old IRGC Leaders can’t fight as seen by Soleimani & PMU Deaths. While the Younger won’t join them to Protect this Regime. At the right time, one will see that the Regime requires a change. These overthrows will happen in Iran, Iraq, & Lebanon.

The Regime is not being Supported of the Younger in Iran or Younger Militia Proxies either in Iraq, Lebanon & Syria.

        Ok. France (I’m French), Belgium, and some other states are what they have always been : invaded and subdued.

        So, what we just saw is :
        1/ America is back in the Game
        2/ Followers will be numerous.

        Put Europe to the test ( the same way D. Trump ordered 2% defense budget, minimum… to NATO countries. It’s the right direction.

        Russia has no power and we know it. The only problem, danger, calamity, disaster will come from Islamic states (namely Muslim Brotherhood influence and countries like Algeria and North African countries, + black African waves of immigrants).

        I don’t blame them. They’re starving.

        But they are the Muslim faith-crusaders. And so totally brainwashed against Democracy and totally devoted to Islam overtake… that the real war is against their leaders ( for the poor guys not to come, in Europe).

        Europe is your twin-brother. If you want to be alone against the World, in 5 years, you’ll be at war ON the american soil.

        Don’t be stupid. You need an alliance. Not proxies !.

        The best ALLIANCE for the next century is us, Europe.

        One last detail. Don’t let Israel fight alone.

        Mr Trump is doing a great job trying to create a Commun Market in the M. O. Israël will structure all the positive Muslim countries that refuse Shia control.

Questions like: Is Iran really the greatest threat we face? And who’s actually benefiting from this? And why are we continuing to ignore the decline of our country in favor of jumping into another pointless quagmire, from which there’s no obvious exit?”

    President Trump’s policy toward Iran continues to bear ill fruit. When he entered the Oval Office, Tehran’s nuclear program was limited by a tight inspections and safeguard system. The Islamic regime faced internal tensions as the young, especially, hoped for greater economic opportunities in the West. With Iran’s nuclear ambitions tamed, the U.S. and allied states could follow up with a challenge to Tehran to moderate its regional behavior in return for additional, appropriate concessions. Now all of that is gone

    @Popcorn Hour, the Iranians will use proxies to go after the US and the Zionists. We know that they had existing plans in place for such a scenario. From the articles they also have thousands of sleeper cells worldwide. So the smart thing to do is to use those cells for very high priority targets, but to otherwise use them to train local groups such as the Black Hebrews. The ideal would be to have a very well trained ongoing local insurgency directed against the Zionists. It should be a normal thing to wake up in the morning and read that another few thousand died world wide in poisoning, bombings, what ever. Even taking their cruise missiles and launching them off the coast from a merchant ship to target Boeing, Raytheon, Oil processing plants, basically things that are strategic and not able to be taken out by a small team. If i was China or Russia this is a dream come true so provide logical aid, weapons to both the local insurgency and Iran would be very smart. This is going to be 4 times more expensive than Iraq so they want to keep this going for many years and bankrupt America. This is exactly why we should never have allowed Jews to live , work or invest in America, they are a cancer that will end up killing the host.

    General Soleimani spearheaded the fight against daesh (ISIS) and his al Quds force, as well as the Lebanese Hezballah and other Shia groups. They lost a lot of men fighting daesh and other terrorist group. America just killed the person in charge of the fight against the jihadist.

    Do you even know what’s going on in the Middle East? Over 99% of Americans don’t, yet they support the military and government activity in the Middle East.

    How are the Iranians going to attack US forces in Iraq if they have pulled their militia commanders and their staffs back to Iran? I don’t know any military philosophy that recommends this course of action prior to a major offensive. Successful military operations need leadership. Numbers alone don’t win battles or wars. Looks to me like the Iranians have cut and run, leaving the rank and file leaderless. The captains have abandoned ship and left the crews to drown. Didn’t Persians do the same In antiquity after the Greeks beat them? In any case, it doesn’t demonstrate a lot of Iranian confidence that their militias in Iraq are strategically important.
