Partial Iraq election results drop PM Al Abadi to third place

Two Shiite candidates are ahead of prime minister Haydar al Abadi according to partial results of Iraq’s general election. They are the cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and the pro-Iranian militia chief Hadi al-Amiri. DEBKAfile: If confirmed in the final count, this will be bad news for the US and Israel. While running as a pro-Saudi candidate, Sadr, who is of Lebanese descent, is a good friend of Hizballah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah and his Mahdi Army militia was trained by Hizballah officers.  He is also a graduate of the Qom seminaries in Iran. Amiri was set up by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as future prime minister of Iraq and their puppet. Sadr, whose political record is extremely erratic, may have no qualms about forming a pact with Amiri for joining his  coalition government under Tehran’s thumb.

    It appears that the teams are forming up to destroy Israel and the US. One on side you’ll have Russia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and maybe China, and on the other side you’ll have the US, NATO, Israel, and hopefully India. In an all out convention war, the number of troops and tanks won’t matter much because the side who controls the skies, controls the battle. The troops and tanks will just be target practice for the jets and choppers. In a nuclear war, nothing will matter. Mankind will perish from the earth. Israel will not go down to slaughter without firing every last bullet including it’s reported 500 nukes, and they shouldn’t. No more holocausts. The US has enough nukes to knock the earth out of orbit. We won’t go down that easily either. I guess the Russians and Chinese have to ask themselves if it’s worth it to side with the Muslim terrorists. Do they love the Muslims enough to give up their own country’s existence to fight for them?

    into the abyss he goes…

    Amos – Chapter 6

    1. Woe to those who are at ease in Zion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the first of the nations, and the house of Israel has come to them.

    2. Proceed to Calneh and see, and go from there to the great Hamath, and go down to Gath of the Philistines-are they better than these kingdoms, or is their border greater than your border?

    3. You, who bring yourselves closer to the day of evil, and you bring near the dwelling amidst violence.

    Tehillim – Psalms – Chapter 97

    1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
    The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.
    the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

    2. Cloud and thick darkness are around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.

    3. Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around.
    Fire will go before Him: in the war of Gog and Magog, for it is written concerning his war (Ezek. 38:22): “And I shall plead against him with pestilence and with blood, and rain bringing floods and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.”

    4. His lightnings illuminated the world; the earth saw and quaked.
    His lightnings: His brilliant lights, an expression of (Ezek. 21:15): “It is polished that it may glitter.”
    and quaked: “Surely there will be a great earthquake on that day in the land of Israel. And at My presence, the fishes of the sea… will quake.” [The word] is an expression of (above 48: 7): “pangs like [those of] a woman in confinement.”

    5. Mountains melted like wax from before the Lord, from before the Master of all the earth.
    melted like wax: as it is written (Ezek. 38:20): “and the mountains will be thrown down, and the cliffs will fall.”

    There is no such thing as a legal and fair election in any Islamic country. It is all fake. Muslims go from bad to worse and gravitate towards the lowest forms of violent terrorism which are the closest approximations to the Islam which they prefer.

    The Americans should have taken control over the power structures of government in Iraq after two costly wars. They did not do so for all the wrong reasons – such as wanting to appear virtuous to satisfy the goals and aspirations of left-wing extremists.

    To pretend that Americans were there to save the Iraq and then leave was beyond naive and actually conveys a stupidity that spits on the 5000+ Americans who died in an attempt to make Iraq and the ME free.

    The end result is now a gift on a silver platter of Iraq to Iran and more deadly war ensured in the future. Trump, I hope, is not as naive as Obama and Bush.

      I’m surprised the CIA and Saudis couldn’t buy enough Sunni votes to win.
