More US Apache attack helicopters to Maliki? Are these children Qaeda?
Read and judge

Ibrahim Ebeid


February 15, 2014

David S. Cloud of the Los Angeles Times January 27, 2014, 5:13 p.m. reports that "Iraq’s embattled government will be allowed to buy and lease Apache attack helicopters to help fight a renewed insurgency after a U.S. lawmaker lifted his long-running objections to the deal, the Pentagon said Monday.

The agreement allows Iraq to lease as many as six Apaches this year and purchase another two dozen for delivery over the next three years, officials said.

Iraq’s military hopes to use the aircraft against militants from the Al Qaeda-linked group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, who have overrun parts of Iraq's Anbar province, including the capital, Ramadi, and the city of Fallouja. The fighting has left hundreds of civilians, soldiers and militants dead and forced thousands of families to flee.

The Pentagon said the Apache leasing deal was worth $1.37 billion and included 152 Hellfire missiles, launchers, night-vision goggles, spare parts and other gear. The U.S. is also preparing to train Iraqi troops in Jordan, officials said.

Delivery of the first leased aircraft is not likely before the summer, and Iraqi pilots and ground crews will still have to be trained, delaying the helicopter's use in combat for months. The purchased Apaches must still be manufactured.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had blocked the deal since July, demanding assurances that Iraq’s military would use the helicopters only against the insurgents and not against civilians opposed to Prime Minister Nouri Maliki’s government.
Menendez lifted his objections Monday after the State Department promised that Iraq’s use of the aircraft would be monitored, officials said.
Menendez "is satisfied with the end-use monitoring measures that the State Department will exercise to ensure that the Apaches are used in a responsible manner," said a Menendez aide, who requested anonymity to discuss the deliberations.

Efforts by the White House and Maliki to reassure Menendez intensified in recent weeks as the security situation in Anbar worsened and the Obama administration stepped up efforts to assist the Iraqi leader.
The Pentagon rushed 75 Hellfire missiles, which can be fired from Iraqi helicopters or airplanes, to Baghdad in mid-December and have also sent small arms and ammunition."

End of article as it came in Los Angels Times.

What the American people do not know that there is a popular revolt is taking place in many provinces in Iraq against the occupation, and tyranny of the government, that was imposed upon them by the United States and Iran. The situation in Iraq is unbearable , Iraq and its institutions were destroyed, no security, 78% of the Educators, Scientists, Doctors, Engineres either were killed , in jails or forced to to take refuge abroad, neo proper water to drink, no proper medicine, no peace no life. Iran is controlling everything in Iraq and the United States is sending more arms to strengthen the control of Iraq by Iran?

The popular Revolt in Iraq is directed against the influence of Iran and the government that the United States support and protect, the criminal Maliki Government and his militias. This Revolt is not Qaeda or ISIS, it is a genuine Iraqi Revolt for liberation and Independence. If the US Media send their reporters to the field they will realize what we say and they will see the facts on the ground.

The US Administration , the Congress and the Media are responsible for what is going on in Iraq, they should tell the people the fact and stop deceiving us. Arming the gangs of pro Iran government of Maliki to kill people en mass is a crime that should not be ignored.
