US military buildup in Iraq via Israel and Jordan ready for clash with pro-Iranian Iraqi militias

DEBKAfile Exclusive: US troop reinforcements were flown to Iraq on Wednesday, March 6 ready for an offensive by Iraq’s two largest pro-Iranian militias against US forces in northern Iraq and Syria. The additional troops were consigned from US bases in Jordan and Israel. The next day, when those militias called for “resistance to US presence in the region,” American forces in the Gulf region and southern Europe, particularly in Romania and Bulgaria, were also placed on high readiness.

Our sources name those militias as Kata’ib Hezbollah and Asaib Ahl al-Haq aka the Khazali Network – both linked to Hizballah, Iran’s Lebanese surrogate.

The US command in the region estimates that American forces in eastern and southern Syria as well as the US bases near the Syrian border are at risk, since both these militias have been deployed by their commander, Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Solemani, to positions in Syria. They have also  planted covert cells in Gulf emirates.

The call for “resistance” came the day after Washington designated as a terrorist organization – and imposed sanctions on – a third pro-Iranian Iraqi militia called Nujaba. This group provides the Iranian military in Syria with a special operations unit. It is armed with Iranian surface missiles and Russian-made T-72 tanks handed over by the Syrian army. Nujaba’s primary mission is to capture the Golan from Israeli rule.
Thursday saw American forces in Iraq facing a further hazard. Nessar al-Rab’ee, head of the political wing of the military wing of Iraq’s powerful Sadrist movement, called on parliament in Baghdad for legislation ordering all foreign forces to leave the country. Since American troops make up the bulk of the foreign presence, this law initiative was seen as directed against them. This was an unexpected setback. Muqtada Sadr, who heads this movement, has long opposed Iranian influence in Baghdad. That he was willing for his armed wing, the Mahdi Army, to join forces with the pro-Iranian militias against the United States further stoked the forebodings of US commanders in the Middle East and the Trump administration in Washington.

Our sources report that on Friday, March 8, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo voiced US concerns in a phone call to Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi. That evening, Abdul-Mahdi issued the following notice: “The US cannot legally establish new bases in Iraq and its current military presence is to be limited only to combating Daesh and training Iraqi troops.” It is noted that the Iraqi prime minister can’t do much against the pro-Iranian militias since they outgun and outnumber the national army.
Baghdad’s notice was taken as a refusal to allow the US to go through with its plan to establish new military facilities to accommodate the troops whom President Donald Trump has ordered to be withdrawn from Syria. Those facilities are already under construction in the north near the oil city of Kirkuk opposite the US air base in the western Anbar province.

    Here we go again…the yanks walk into other people’s countries without an exit strategy, mess up (eg: disband all of the Iraqi army giving rise to ISIS) and then get bogged down for years to come….Afghanistan 17 years so far?…lots of money no brains.

        The lesson here is that Islamic allies are not to be trusted. They will always side with the most vicious and well-armed terrorists to gain the advantage.

        After trillions spent in Iraq, Sadr becomes an Iranian pawn against the West. They want America to do their dirty work and give them infrastructure and money but offer nothing in return.

        America should take their oil to repay for years of aid and training. Yes, the US should not have saved Kuwait but then the Gulf states would probably be gone today if Gulf 1 had not happened. So the Gulf states should now send their troops and equipment to do battle with Iran and Iraq. The US should concentrate on getting repaid and giving leadership to the Arab alliance against the Iranian Axis.

          Nobody have asked them to start their illegal war in Iraq. They should pay for the damages they have caused in Iraq. If they want to find WMD they need to go to Israel . They have them all. They should leaver Iraq, they are not wanted there.

            Actually, there was nothing illegal about a war that liberated Kuwait even though it was does not exactly matter because they are all totalitarian Islamists. Saddam was on his way to nukes but Israel prevented him by bombing the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak 37 years ago.

            Saddam also had WMD and those weapons were transferred to Syria and Iran got a good part of his military equipment for safe storage. Syria used and is using those WMD on its people just as Iraq used them on its Kurdish population in Halabja.

            People who hate Israel; will say and do anything in these forums to paint Israel as evil and to avoid calling out its enemies who really are evil.

            I support Israel, you support terrorists and Islamic totalitarian states. Try going there to live with them, a-hole, and see how you make out.

      The only exit strategy the US has ever had was to win; everything else falls in place after the enemy is defeated. Obama made it easy for ISIS by pulling the US out of Iraq and the Iraqi Army wasn’t even an Army after many years of purges by Saddam. If we were not there Israel would have already nuked Iran.. We are there to prevent a larger conflict from erupting. We are there to counter the Iranian presents; we are there because we get to use our the conflict to test our new weapons and they work as advertised.

    US went not extra, but two extra miles to kep Iraq intact, and stepped on Kurds, to satisfy interests of the Shia Arab clique ruling the country, and got what they deserved in return. Hadn’t it been Lord Cromer, the one who twisted hands of Osman Turkey and moved border between Eretz Israel and Egypt from Wadi El Arish to where it is now, said that:”You can’t buy Arab, you only can lease him” What yanks can be blamed for, that they are illiterate idiots with minimum knowledge of the region, but with over-blown self-esteem and think that they know everything much better than everybody else, that’s why they constantly get from one blunder to another.
