Depuis quelques heures, les troupes US dans la région en général et en Irak en particulier ont renoué avec ce que les psychothérapeutes du Pentagone décrivent comme étant " le syndrome du cercueil". En effet, cette composante des Hachd al-Chaabi, Kataeb Hezbollah, dont les deux bases syriennes ont été sauvagement bombardées par les États-Unis d`Amérique à Abou-Kamal, à Deir ez-Zor compte des combattants qui font partie de ceux qui se sont battus dès 2003 contre l`invasion puis l`occupation américaine et qui ont fait porter à 4000 le nombre des G`Is et Marines tués quand en 2008 le Pentagone a fait un premier bilan, en prélude au retrait US quelque 2 ans plus tard.

US airstrikes have pounded three Kataib Hezbollah military facilities near the town of Qaim, Iraq, as well as two targets in Syria, in response to the group’s alleged bombing of an Iraqi military base on Friday.

The US bases in western Iraq still dispatch weapons and military equipment to ISIS troops deployed in the region, an official said. An informed official with Iraq’s Hashd al-Shaabi (popular forces) told the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website on Monday that the US sends military aid to ISIS in western Iraq, especially areas in Makhoul mountain and al-Hazar island.

Well-informed sources in Baghdad said “the Shia, Sunni and Kurdish parliamentary delegations will meet to discuss the impeachment of President Barham Salih due to his violation of the constitution by refusing to announce the name of the new Prime Minister, Dr Qusay al-Suheel”. The source expects the street also to mobilise against the Iraqi President who – according to the source – is “trying to promote his own candidate. This is considered a clear violation of the constitution and a violation of the domestic internal politico-religious power balance in the country that could lead to unexpected consequences.”

The reduction would mean 114 fewer people at the US Embassy in Baghdad, 15 fewer people at the Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center, and eight fewer people at Consulate General in Erbil, the capital of Iraq`s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, the report said.

Mardi dans la nuit, cinq missiles ont été tirés contre la plus grande base des forces américaines en Irak, Ain al-Asad. Le plus grand black out a été maintenu sur cet incident qu’aucun groupe n’a revendiqué. Pourtant tous les yeux sont tournés vers la Résistance irakienne, cible première des efforts de déstabilisation des États-Unis depuis le premier octobre. Alors que les provinces de Salaheddine, de Diayala, de Mossoul ont été ces derniers jours la cible des attaques des cellules « ressuscitées de Daech » que pilotent les forces américaines, jusqu’où ira la patience stratégique des Hachd dont l’Amérique demande ni plus ni moins la dissolution ?

Since October, riots and unrest have wrecked havoc across Lebanon, Iraq and Iran. Iraq has suffered the worst as reports suggest over 300 people have been killed in the riots. In Lebanon, the US and its vassals have been busy hijacking the people’s grievances over the massive corruption among government officials. Followers of US puppets Samir Geagea and Saad Hariri have been blocking roads in an attempt to shut down the country, and to provoke a response from Hezbollah, thus setting the stage for a new civil war. In Iran, protests over gas price hikes have been hijacked by US backed MEK terrorists and Royalists loyal to the son of the late Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, with acts of violence and thuggery as they have burned down bank offices and government buildings.

Kidnapped and sold into slavery at 14, one former Yazidi sex slave finally had the chance to confront her brutal Islamic State captor in a heartwrenching moment that has gone viral. Her story also had a disturbing European twist. Standing before her abuser, Ashwaq Haji Hamid demanded answers, while the captured militant stood with his head bowed, refusing to look his victim in the eye for the entire confrontation. “Why did you do that to me?” she asked in a video filmed by Iraqi TV, demanding that he raise his head to face her.

Le bain de sang dans le centre de l’Irak où les émeutes prennent de plus en plus la forme d’une guerre civile « dure » risque de pousser les puissantes tribus à reprendre les armes et à combattre un gouvernement central qu’elles ne reconnaissent guère. Les événements meurtriers survenus à Dhi Kar et Al-Naciria ont fait volé en éclats l’Alliance chiite dont une partie crie son hostilité à l’Iran et menace de recourir aux armes pour mettre fin à ce qu’elle qualifie d’ingérence iranienne.
