Question US plans to create new military bases in Iraq and Kuwait

US plans to create new military bases in Iraq and Kuwait
Saturday, July 14, 2018 3:00:00 PM

The U.S. armed forces are planning to establish new military bases on the territory of Iraq and Kuwait, reported the TV channel PressTV with reference to the Iraqi media.

According to the TV channel, the Americans plan to create a military base in the Iraqi province of Al Anbar, which will allow them to control the road connecting Baghdad with Damascus, as well as the territories in the west of the country. It is noted that the military base will become the third in the province along with air bases Al-Assad and Habbaniyah. The U.S. military will also open an airbase in Kuwait, which would become the main logistics point and the largest landing point in the Middle East.

The U.S. withdrew its forces from Iraq in December 2011 and returned to the country in August 2014 after the seizure of the country's territories by the militants of the Islamic State. The Prime Minister of Iraq, Haider al-Abad, announced a victory over ISIS in December 2017. The operation against ISIS was carried out with the support of the US-led Coalition. In early February, Al-Abad stated that Baghdad had adopted a plan to gradually reduce the presence of the US-led coalition in the country.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
