    Turkey urges citizens to leave Iraq, excluding Iraqi Kurdistan: foreign ministry

    Ankara (AFP) - Turkey on Wednesday called on its citizens to leave all areas of Iraq, excluding Iraqi Kurdistan, due to increased security risks, the foreign ministry said.

    "The scope of our travel warning to Iraq has expanded to include all provinces except for Dohuk, Arbil and Sulaymaniyah," all of which are in the northern region of Iraqi Kurdistan, the ministry said in a statement posted on its website.

    Turkey calls on Turkish citizens to leave all Iraqi territory not held by Barzani.

    And, Barzani travels to Turkey.

    KRG leader Barzani arrives in Turkey, visits MİT headquarters

    Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) President Massoud Barzani visited Turkey this week to hold talks with Turkish officials amid tensions between Turkey and Iraq over the deployment of Turkish troops in northern Iraq.

    Barzani arrived in Ankara on Wednesday afternoon for a two-day official visit. Although it wasn't stated on the official schedule, the KRG leader paid his first visit to the National Intelligence Organization's (MİT) headquarters, Turkish media reported. He is expected to meet with MİT Undersecretary Hakan Fidan.

    Barzani is scheduled to have bilateral talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu later in the day. Regional issues and the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) are expected to be discussed during the meetings.

    KRG president's visit to Turkey came amid the escalating tension between Ankara and Baghdad over the deployment of Turkish troops in Iraqi city of Mosul.

    Ah, yes, democracy.

    https://www.rt.com/uk/325246-mod-appeal-iraqi-abuse/

    Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has won an appeal to overturn a ruling by the High Court which allowed Iraqi civilians to sue the ministry over allegations of illegal detention and mistreatment by British troops in Iraq.

    Initially, Justice Leggatt ruled a limitation on civilian claims against the MoD would be suspended due to a time bar on civilians taking legal action in Iraq.

    However, on Wednesday he ruled the limitation period was not suspended. The three appeal judges – Master of the Rolls Lord Dyson, with Lord Justice Tomlinson and Lord Justice Vos – made a unanimous decision.

    Tomlinson explained the ruling related to the “Iraqi Civilian Litigation,” under which hundreds of Iraqis have filed claims in the English High Court against the MoD.

    The Iraqi civilians are seeking compensation and damages for alleged unlawful detention and ill-treatment by British troops during the conflict, which began with the invasion of Iraq by a US-led coalition in 2003.

    “The Department welcomes the decision of the Court of Appeal as it serves to safeguard taxpayer interests in the face of hundreds of compensation claims which have appeared many years after the alleged incidents to which they refer,” an MoD spokesperson said.

    But Martyn Day, a representative from law firm Leigh Day, said the ruling presented an extra hurdle for Iraqis seeking justice.

    “These cases are against the MoD, which has so far settled hundreds of claims by Iraqis who claimed they had been abused and wrongly detained during the period of British involvement in southern Iraq following the ill-fated war of 2003.

    “This judgment puts up an additional technical hurdle for the remaining Iraqis who are looking to get justice for what happened to them.”

    The extent of British involvement in Iraq is expected to be published in the summer of 2016 as the long-delayed Chilcot Inquiry report is made public.

    The inquiry, set up to examine the legality and repercussions of the 2003 invasion, last took evidence in 2011 and has cost the taxpayer more than £10 million (US$15 million).

    "Senior Iraqi MP Reveals Riyadh's 8-bln-Dollar Suspicious Aid to Massoud".


    "Barzani has received financial aid amounting to $8bln during his recent visit to Riyadh which will be distributed among his family members and high-ranking officials in Kurdistan region," Sarvah Abdolwahid said in an interview with the Iraqi al-Alam al-Jadid daily.

    No wonder this asshole was helping isis terriosts steal Iraqi oil and sent it to Turkey, Barzani needs to be taken out, sooner or later, he is going to become a problem for Russia.

    If Iraq was smart, they would use this opportunity with UN to, invite the Russian Air Force into Iraq, I am pretty sure that Russia would not say no. Why does the Iraqi government not invite the Russian Air force into Iraq? They can use a Iranian Air base.

    Good for China and Iraq. This is a great step forward.

    In fact Russians and Syrians should try and keep up and simply purchase a few of those.
    They seem to get the job done on the cheap. I mean sure Mi 24P does have its place in this war, but an armed UAV like this will complement it nicely.

    When it comes to cross-border smuggling and loitering time, this will do wonders in Syria.

    100,000 foreign troops incl. Americans to be deployed in Iraq, MP claims

    "During a meeting in Baghdad on November 27, McCain told Prime Minister Haider Abadi and a number of senior Iraqi cabinet and military officials that the decision was ‘non-negotiable’, claimed Hanan Fatlawi, the head of the opposition Irada Movement".

    They should have told McCain to fuck and turned to Russia.

    There is no way Americans would support deployment on such a scale in of all places Iraq. This is some sort of BS.

    Been saying this for ages. The Chinese drones have even a bigger advantage, they're relatively cheap (about a third for a complement) when compared to the baseline MQ-1. The only problem I have is the ammunition availability.

    US doesn't need any major deployment as they have KRG peshmerga as their boots in the ground. The question is how long will the Barzani regime hold? If him and his guys leave office there's chance KRG and central government in Baghdad will re-approach and stop smuggling IS oil to Erdogan.

    So far KRG has been a silent yet efficient IS enabler. Which is pathetic.

    No surprise here, they  are stealing Iraqi oil for more than decade now, under west protection.
    Look at their capital , everything from stolen oil money. And they are middlemen of IS smuggling scheme now .

    The question is how all those oil fields in KRG controlled territory can be let's say "closed" ...

    Regarding Barzani's KDP ousting, we don't know how strong their main opposition (PUK) is nowadays.

    So, the Saudi 'coalition' against ISIS might not have the support of Iraq. So how is it going to be able to fight ISIS in Iraq without a UNSC resolution? Makes a bit of a problem getting to 'ISIS' in Syria as well.

    According to an Iraqi lawmaker, the Saudi-led coalition is pursuing its own separate goals in the fight against Daesh and Baghdad will most likely refuse joining it.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iraq will most likely not join the Saudi-led coalition in the fight against Daesh (the Islamic State), a terrorist orgamization prohibited in many countries including the United States and Russia, a member from the Iraqi Parliament’s Security Committee told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    “I think that Iraq will refuse to join this coalition because it is going after its own goals <…>The Iraqi Parliament, as well as its largest party the Iraqi National Alliance, will undoubtedly call on the government not to join this coalition and not support it in any way,” Majid al-Gharaoui said.

    Hmm, something tells me this coalition has to do with the news we read a week ago about 100.000 troops to be send in Iraq.

    According to an Iraqi lawmaker, the Saudi-led coalition is pursuing its own separate goals in the fight against Daesh and Baghdad will most likely refuse joining it.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iraq will most likely not join the Saudi-led coalition in the fight against Daesh (the Islamic State), a terrorist orgamization prohibited in many countries including the United States and Russia, a member from the Iraqi Parliament’s Security Committee told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    “I think that Iraq will refuse to join this coalition because it is going after its own goals <…>The Iraqi Parliament, as well as its largest party the Iraqi National Alliance, will undoubtedly call on the government not to join this coalition and not support it in any way,” Majid al-Gharaoui said.
