Iraqi Army takes delivery of new Russian air defense systems

OWoN: The blame game gets more confusing and dangerous.

Fascinating that the supply of weapons comes from Russia paid for with USD while the U.S. Pounds away at ISIS supposedly to protect Iraq.

Contemporary air defense systems delivered by Russia to Iraq will improve national security and protection of vital sites, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said.

"System operators have been trained in the manufacturing country," says a ministry report.

"Only a handful of states possess such advanced air defense systems," it emphasized.

The video clips and photographs provided by the Iraqi Defense Ministry demonstrate the Pantsir-S1 air defense missile and artillery systems and Dzhigit man-portable air defense missile launchers.

It was reported earlier that Baghdad had asked Moscow for weapons in the midst of an offensive by the radical organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and the related escalation of tensions in Iraq.

Reportedly, contracts with a value exceeding $1 billion were signed during Iraqi Defense Minister Sadun Farhan al-Dulaymi's Moscow visit this July for the delivery of a large batch of artillery armaments and ammunition.

Several Sukhoi Su-25 attack aircraft were supplied to Iraq in June.

Iraq ordered the delivery of Russian Mil Mi-28E and Mi-35 helicopters and Pantsir-S1 air defense artillery and missile systems with a total cost of $4.2 billion in 2013.

Russian Defense Minister Gen. of the Army Sergei Shoigu told the Iraqi counterpart on July 24, "Military-technological cooperation between our countries had been developing successfully and a relevant normative and legal foundation had been laid."

  5. Pentagon Official: The President Is Lying To America — About Us, And About ISIS

    Vatic Note: The only thing I can guess about why the PTB are acting like they are fighting within, is because they need a revolution like these bankers had in 1917 with the Russians, and then in 1933 with the Germans, and then both lost in their world wars. The ptb may well be trying to get us to overthrow our government in order to ensure our loss of WW III.

    So, no revolution, so we stay strong for their WW III they need and have planned for us. Once we get past that, then we can take down the government and replace it with non professional politicians.

    On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview with CBS, “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”

    But we know that isn’t true, as nearly a dozen administration officials have testified to the threat posed by ISIS publicly over the last year.

    The fact that the president chose to use the word “they” instead of “we” immediately drew condemnation from friend and foe alike, who saw it as the president’s attempt to pass the buck. (RELATED: Obama Has Spent More Time Playing Golf Than In Intel Briefings)

    To mitigate the fallout, Earnest’s office issued a statement stating that, “…A lot of that [decision-making] was predicated on the will of the Iraqi security forces to fight for their country.”

    But this was also not true.

    In 2010, General Lloyd Austin, then-commander of United State Forces in Iraq, directly informed the president that over 20,000 U.S. troops would be required to maintain the gains made by U.S. forces against al-Qaida and its affiliates, and to mentor the fledgling Iraqi security forces– because he knew they were not ready to go out on their own. (MILLER: The Facts Are In, And Obama’s Policy Is A Direct Danger To The United States)

    But in order for Austin’s plan to work, the United States would have to negotiate and sign a security agreement with the government of Iraq to give the U.S. legal authority to keep U.S. military forces in that country beyond December 2010.

    The White House claims they were forced to withdraw because then-Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki refused to grant U.S. force serving in Iraq post 2010 immunity from Iraqi prosecution– a prerequisite for the presence of U.S. forces anywhere else in the world.

    But the administration made no attempt to seriously negotiate an agreement with the Iraqis...(more)
