German suspends military operations in Iraq over Iran crisis

Due to the “significant threat of the Iran crisis,” Germany Wednesday suspended its military operations in Iraq and ordered its troops there to withdraw. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Germany’s military presence in Iraq consists of small special operations and air force units, mostly surveillance and spy planes, which have operated with US forces in Iraq and Syria.

    I could never understand why any NATO forces were in Iraq. NATO was created to protect Europe from Russian/Soviet invasion why are they in Iraq? I can understand why we are in Iraq but why Germany?

      the islamic state of germany hasn’t been in the military arena since their righteous defeat and still isn’t a military force of any note. NATO’s time has come and gone…let the germans and their french islamic comrades provide their own protection without America’s subsiding their generous social welfare programs via our NATO expenditures!

    Germany will be a muslim country in a few decades, the reward for a nation of cowards and “cucks”. You have rejected your Christian heritage and now you will live under the cruel rule of islam. What a disgraceful way a once great people will end. I am a German-American it’s tough for me to say this but it’s true.

      When the Germans have decided they have had enough with muslims, it will be all over for them very quickly in Germany.
