    Today Iraq signed a series of strategic long term agreements with China.

    The IRaqi delegation consisted of the Iraqi Prime Minister, The MInister of defence and the Oil Minister.

    Iraq and china have established a joint marketing company for Iraqi crude oil. It will be based out of China and Singapore
    Iraq and China also signed a wide ranging defence and security agreement... of which the details are not clear.


    Iraqi Minister of Defence and his Chinese Counterpart today.




    potentially it could mean that the Iraqi Oil can be purchased by Chinese refiners without having to pay in USD.
    And I am guessing that Iraqis will get Yuan denominated goods, services and Chinese investments in return.


    Uncle Sam won't be happy.

    I wasn't aware that Iraq was actually having the newer version of the Pantsir-S1, even the Russians are using the older versions in Latakia. probably same goes for Syria?

    Yes, Syria has the initial Pantsir version, only Algeria and Iraq have the version with Janus radar.

    and coincides with iraq taking ramadi and slaughtering once and for all every traitor there.

    which means that silk route via iraq and syria to the med is a real possibility for the first time.

    Last thing remains is to kick the U.S. led coalition out and bring in Russia, because it's so obvious to anyone paying attention that the U.S. led coalition is there to prevent the movement of the Shia counter-insurgency and not to defeat IS-SHAM, remove them (U.S. coalition) and the Shia mobilization should be significantly more effective. The fact remains that IS-SHAM loves to attack Iraq but not Saudi Arabia, despite sharing borders, and despite Mecca and Medina being located in Saudi territory, is pretty damning indictment.

    I mean why doesn't IS-SHAM want to conquer Mecca and Medina? Rhetorical question, IS-SHAM's masters already control those sites, and the fact that the U.S. has made no attempt to put pressure on the political vermin that control GCC and Turkey is strong indication that they have no intention of destroying IS-SHAM and their Daesh-bag death squads.

    It amazes me that within hours of this military video being shot it is up on Youtube. Shows it can be done, which means all the others who could but don't, don't want to.

    Looks weird. S-5/8/12 and so on rockets have a specialized engine to propell them to maximum speed in less then a second so there should be siginificantly more smoke even from single rockets, but there is barely any smoke at all.

    http://www.mintpressnews.com/killed-isis-commanders-cell-phone-shows-direct-ties-to-turkish-intelligence/212317/

    Baghdad, Iraq – An ISIS commander was killed in Salahuddin province and his body was searched. A cell phone retrieved from the corpse revealed messages from Turkish intelligence services proving the NATO country was providing security for ISIS militants when they traveled between Turkey and Iraq. This is the second NATO country implicated in assisting ISIS troops. The first was Canada.

    The IS commander was killed by Hashd al-Shaabi, a loyalist volunteer force. Jabbar al-Ma’mouri, a leader within the force made the announcement. He said, “The mobile phone also contains other important information which cannot be disclosed now, and it has been delivered to the specialized security groups for further scrutiny.”

    More and more proves about Turkey role in Syria and Iraq are coming out.

    US to Sell $800Mln of Hellfire, Captive Air Training Missiles to Iraq

    Washington endorsed a sale of Hellfire missiles and Captive Air Training Missiles to Baghdad.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States has approved the sale of $800 million worth of Hellfire missiles and Captive Air Training Missiles to Iraq, The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced in a statement on Thursday.

    "The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Iraq of Hellfire missiles and Captive Air Training Missiles, related equipment and support. The estimated cost is $800 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on January 6, 2016," the statement said.

    Washington’s latest weapons sale to Iraq comes as the United States has vowed to help Iraqi forces fight Daesh (Islamic State) within its borders, as the terrorist organization has claimed swaths of territory in the region.

    DSCA said that the sale of 5,000 AGM-114K/N/R Hellfire missiles, ten 114K M36E9 Captive Air Training Missiles, as well as "associated equipment; and defense services," which major US defense contractor Lockheed Martin will produce, came at the request of Iraq.

    In recent months, Iraqi security forces made progress in reclaiming Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, after the city fell to Daesh terrorists in May, in Baghdad’s largest defeat against the extremist group.

    An American Hellfire missile has found its way to Cuba. The US are desperate to get it back.



    https://z5h64q92x9.net/proxy_u/ru-en.en/https/russian.rt.com/article/140861

    The US have pressured the Finns to extradite yet another Russian citizen accused of hacking / theft.

    It would be nice if the Cubans kept the Hellfire long enough for the Russians to have a good look at it.

    Exactly. These hellfire are nothing special for Russia. But definitely North Korea or Iran can make good use of it.

    As well, why are Russians still traveling to other countries?  They should know by now it isn't safe for them.  If I lived in Russia, I would be taking advantage of the travel options (due to prices) of regions like Crimea or Sochi or Sukhumi

    Depends on the version actually. They'd definitely love to have a look at the lima and romeo, for sure.
    Of course the latter is not operational yet. But AGM-114L has very solid tech behind it.
