BLOWBACK? 100,000 Person Force That Helped Defeat ISIS May Turn Against Us

Published

(Via The Daily Wire)

A 100,000-member force with close ties to Iran says that now that they have helped U.S.-led coalition troops fight and defeat ISIS, they may have a new target: American troops.

The Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), aka Hashd al-Shaabi, fought on both sides in Iraq but now they want Americans out of the country. Saif Ali, a member of the PMF’s Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba paramilitary, told Fox News, “America should only be here for embassy, any military presence and we will target them. I fought the Americans after 2003, and the British in southern Iraq, and I am happy about that. I don’t hate the American people, only hate the U.S. military, and I have killed many of them.”

Fox News reports, “Ali is one of thousands of PMF members who also took advantage of Iran-supplied weapons and ammunition to take the lives of hundreds of U.S. troops during the insurgency that followed the invasion of Iraq.”

The PMF, a Shiite-created entity, originally was comprised of 40 different militia groups. After they fought against ISIS, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi made them part of the Baghdad government’s security forces in November 2016.

In July 2017, Sayyid al-Shuhada, a member of the Hashd al-Shaabi forces, said a “large number” of troops were killed and wounded in U.S. airstrikes in Anbar province near the Iraq-Syria border. The group released a statement saying, “We will not be silent in the face of this incident.” The Baghdad-based spokesman of the U.S.-led coalition, Army Col. Ryan Dillon, dismissed the allegation.

Mohand al-Eqqaby, the PMF spokesman, said, “Our stand is clear. America was not there at the beginning of this ISIS crisis when we needed them most. We are strong now, and as long as we are fighting, Iraq does not need Americans on our land.”

In addition, the PMF may win seats in Iraq’s parliament, and there is genuine concern that their primary loyalty would be to Iran. Many of their members have joined Syria’s army and Lebanon’s Hezbollah forces which is troubling to some U.S. officials.

In November, CIA chief Mike Pompeo contacted Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassam Soleimani, warning him that troops loyal to Iran might attack American forces. Pompeo stated that the U.S. would hold Iran accountable for “any attacks on American interests.”

James Phillips, senior research fellow for Middle Eastern affairs at the Heritage Foundation, said, “Now that ISIS is not much of a threat, the PMF is likely to plan attacks against U.S. personnel in Iraq that would be carried out as soon as Tehran gives the orders. This is a major concern, given that tensions between Iran and the U.S. are likely to grow in the future.”

A Communist Rage Tweeted at Trump at 4:47 AM Legacy Media silent, G7 Fallout

Published

on

Sunday, Former CIA director and Communist supporter,  Democrat John O. Brennan tweeted at President Donald J. Trump at 4:47 AM, something that would normally make the Legacy Media busy with mockery and casting shame.

The Mainstream Media, who always pointed out the time of morning President Trump tweeted, as if 7AM was a crazy time to be awake, said nothing about their Comrade’s time stamp.

“John Brennan, told the Annual Legislative Conference of the Congressional Black Caucus, on 15 September 2016, in Washington DC, that when he had applied in 1980 to join the CIA, he admitted to them that in the 1976 Presidential election, when Jimmy Carter was running against Gerald Ford, Brennan had voted instead for the candidate of the US Communist Party, Gus Hall, and that he was then greatly relieved to find that this information didn’t cause rejection of his CIA-application,”wrote Strategic Culture Foundation

Trump brought a stealth bomber to a gun fight at the G7 and John McCain lives to spit at USA

Published

on

Saturday, President Donald J. Trump was the center of attention at the G7 meeting of world leaders talking about Tariffs.  American Democrats attacked the President for defending American citizens and they mocked economic justice for the forgotten Americans.

“I blame our leaders and I congratulate leaders of other countries for taking advantage of our leaders,” Trump said. “It’s going to stop. Or we’ll stop trading with them. And that’s a very profitable answer if we have to do it.”

Trump said that America’s trading partners would be making a mistake if they retaliated against new U.S. tariffs.

“If they retaliate they’re making a tremendous mistake because you see we have a tremendous trade imbalance,” he said. “The numbers are so much against them, we win that war 1000 times out of a 1000.”

In response, John McCain, who has vacated his Senate responsibilities in  Arizona and has stayed on a taxpayer-funded vacation for months, turned to Twitter to post that he is upset with Trump:

Trump says he has great relationships with the world leaders, “I would say it is a 10, I would rate our relationships a 10, but I don’t agree with them and they know that” Trump said at his News Conference.

NOT BUDGING

Not everyone wants Americans to stay poor and unemployed.  Supporters of Trump felt his Strong stand to defend American citizens was a good thing.

TELL YOUR FAKE FRIENDS THIS, THE GIG IS UP

“Fake News CNN, I would say the relations is a 10, we have a great relationship, and I don’t blame them, I blamed out past leaders.  There is no reason for this.  It is the fault of the people who proceeded me, back 50 years.  We used to have no debt. I will blame them if they don’t do what they need to do.  They have no choice.  Our Farmers have been hurt.  We are going to fix this, or we are not going to deal with these countries,” said Trump.

WATCH:

 

It is the 99th end of America since Trump took office, according to MSNBC

“If they thought they were going to lecture Trump on the glories of free trade, they got a rude awakening. He came to a gun fight armed with a stealth bomber,” one U.S. official told Breitbart News.
