Iraqi President Says Trump Did Not Ask Permission To 'Watch Iran'

Posted February 07, 2019

"When I took office, ISIS controlled more than 20,000 square miles in Iraq and Syria".

He said the world was entering "an era of decentralised jihad", and said the usa would call on its allies for help "very soon".

"My administration has acted decisively to confront the world's leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran", Trump said in his address.

The report also mentioned that Turkish attacks against Kurdish positions were causing U.S. Kurdish allies to pull away from fighting ISIS in order to defend its own territory. Nobody thought it was possible to do with this quickly, ' he said.

Addressing Wednesday's gathering of foreign ministers, the USA president said he expected a formal announcement as early as next week that the coalition fighting ISIL had reclaimed all of the territory previously held by the armed group. "I don't want to say it too early", he told the gathering.

Trump's comments appear to have further inflamed tensions in Iraq over the continued presence of U.S. troops after the defeat of the Islamic State group.

He applauded USA forces and said, 'You can't do better than we've done militarily, but you'll have people that will be around but we'll search them out and you'll search them out and we'll find them'.

Monday's report, on the other hand, matches the reasoning of U.S. intelligence chiefs last week that IS will rise again in the absence of United States troops - although only in the limited area near its current holdout, rather than Syria and Iraq as a whole. Just two years ago.

ISIS "continues to attract foreign fighters" at a rate of "most likely 50 per month", the task force said. He did not elaborate.

The president elaborated that because the United States has "an unbelievable and expensive military base built in Iraq", the Al Asad Air Base in the western part of the country, "it's perfectly situated for looking at all over different parts of the troubled Middle East rather than pulling up". "At the same time, at a certain point, we want to bring our people back home".

"Great nations do not fight endless wars", said Trump.

"To ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. It's a big factor - their land is gone", Trump told foreign ministers and other senior officials from 79 countries that have worked alongside the United States in fighting the militant group in Syria and Iraq. "The coalition's hard-won battlefield gains can only be secured by maintaining a vigilant offensive against a now largely dispersed and disaggregated ISIS that retains leaders, fighters, facilitators and a profane ideology that fuels their efforts". Partners Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany have remained committed to the deal, along with Iran, and the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency has certified in multiple reports that Iran remains in compliance with measures meant to ensure it can not develop a nuclear weapon.

Since losing the urban strongholds of Mosul, Iraq, and Raqqa, Syria, at the hands of the USA and allied local forces, the militants' standing army has been entirely beaten in Iraq and isolated to a mere pocket of territory in Syria's far east, where a separate campaign waged by the Syrian government and its Russian and Iranian allies have also devastated ISIS.
