Tishwash:  Washington: 60 American soldiers were injured in 72 attacks in Iraq and Syria since October 17

An American military official reported on Thursday that American forces and the international coalition were subjected to new attacks in the last 48 hours in Iraq and Syria using drones and missiles.

In details, an American military official told Agence France-Presse that drones attacked on Wednesday and Thursday morning “American and coalition forces” stationed at a military base at Erbil International Airport in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq, he said.

The official explained that the two attacks did not cause “casualties or damage to infrastructure.”

The American military official said that several drones were launched today, Thursday, at American and coalition forces stationed at the Ain al-Asad air base in Anbar, western Iraq, without recording any casualties or damage.

He pointed out that “several missiles” targeted “also today a base in eastern Syria where forces from the American army and the international coalition are stationed, without causing any casualties or damage.”

For its part, the “Islamic Resistance in Iraq” claimed responsibility for some of these attacks in statements published on the Telegram application.

At dawn on Wednesday, the US military command in the Middle East announced that it had carried out “precision strikes” on two sites in Iraq, in response to “repeated attacks launched by pro-Iran factions against US forces and coalition forces in Iraq and Syria.”

While the American strikes targeted two sites of the Popular Mobilization Forces, and the raids resulted in the killing of eight fighters, according to the toll revealed by the Iraqi “Hezbollah” Brigades.

In total, Washington has recorded 72 attacks since October 17, that is, ten days after the start of the war between Israel and Hamas, according to an updated tally provided by the American military official.

According to the Pentagon, the missile and drone attacks resulted in the injury of about 60 American soldiers.

In response, Washington also bombed sites three times in Syria.

About 2,500 American soldiers are stationed in Iraq and about 900 soldiers in Syria.  link

Mnt Goat   So, how long will us investors in the IQD have to wait before Iraq is allowed to liberate it’s own currency? Why do I say “now is the time”?  We know they are completely out of Chapter VII sanctions since December 2022, and so why not treat them as such? We know they want the Iraq funds (nearly USD 115+ billion) released from the NY banks and put in their custody to do what they want with itWe know they have plans for yet more Sovereign Funds to invest their reserves. We know they are making agreements now for “currency swaps” and will no longer be using any US dollars in Iraq as of January 1st 2024.    [Post 1 of 3….stay tuned]

Mnt Goat  We know since January they have undertaken a massive “de-dollarization” program and told it should have taken 6 years but they decided to do it in 1 year (2023). Why such a hurryWe know the value of the IQD right now without any further economic development does exceed even pre-1991 era ($3.22) but still at 1/6 of a penny?   We know Iraq now pumps 2/3 more oil than in pre-1991 era.  We know Iraq also has announced 132+ tons of GOLD reserves. We know they are pushing this year alone, more than any other year since 2005, for the passing of Oil and Gas law. Why?  [Post 2 of 3….stay tuned]

Mnt Goat  We know for a FACT that it is the U.S. through the Treasury Dept. direction that will NOT give sign-off to allow the reinstatement. WhyFinally, we know, the CBI has told us that January is the most opportune time to reinstate for accounting purposes, since it begins their new FISCAL year. Just be patient, the reinstatement is coming and I firmly believe with what we now are 99% sure it is going to be a January 2024 event. WOW! Finally!!!  [Post 3 of 3]
