BREAKING Reports – New U.S. Airstrikes North of Baghdad – Three Vehicle Convoy of Iran-backed Shia Militia Leaders…

Reports of new late-night U.S. airstrikes north of Baghdad are starting to be confirmed.  According to developing reports a convoy of two or three vehicles carrying Iran-back Shia Militia leaders was targeted near Taji in Northern Baghdad. [Convoy pic below]

The strike is reported to have killed Qais Khazali, one of the people the US named as responsible for storming of US Embassy in Baghdad.  Also Shibl al-Zaydi is now confirmed to have been killed. Shibl was the leader of Kata’ib al-Imam Ali or the Imam Ali Battalions.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Air strikes targeting Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces umbrella grouping of Iran-backed Shi’ite militias near camp Taji north of Baghdad have killed six people and critically wounded three, an Iraqi army source said late on Friday.

Two of the three vehicles making up a militia convoy were found burned, the source said, as well as six burned corpses. The strikes took place at 1:12 am local time, he said. (link)

It would appear the U.S. has ongoing excellent intelligence on the movements of key Iranian militia leadership operating in Iraq, and are now working through a list of those targets as they attempt to move around.

          both trump and putin have been compared to mob bosses. and trump may well be doing something putin did, working to get the israeli-oriented oligarchs out of the government and returning u.s. policy to what is actually the long-term advantage of the country itself.

          one criticism that is heard of this attack is that it will just pull the populations of iran and iraq closer to their governments and to each other. if trump is using these attacks as a way station to the one state solution (the only conceivable solution to israel/palestine), that is actually an advantage, since it creates stronger governments in both countries which can, if correctly handled, actually come to support such a solution, allowing israel to exist, even legitimizing most of its six-day war conquests, and bring their populations along as well. what helps for the muslim countries is that israel will have a rather changed future as a country with a half-jew/half-muslim voting citizenry.

          however i can’t see the likud/mossad (and their hard-core supporters here, such as biden, pelosi, the clintons, ryan, romney, etc.) being unable to refuse the offer unless the leverage of 9-11’s revelation is used, either behind the scenes or, far better (since assassination comes too late), right out there in the public arena.

            Really!?
            I’ve been paying attention pretty closely – and I haven’t seen or heard any such speculation. Your comment is total BS.

            Iranians have been in open rebellion all over their country since November. Iraqis are completely focused on avoiding car bombs (planted by Iranian sponsored terrorists). They don’t want to get closer to any government. Their domestic Government is the source of all their troubles and the solution to nothing.

            my hope is that while the u.s. zioneo deepstate does what it wants: a war with iran, trump has other plans. although this is certainly edge of the abyss maneuvering, it is just possible that a comprehensive peace settlement after, say, trump’s reelection (and after the entire democratic party’s apparatus morphs from being the war party against peacenik trump into being the peaceniks against warrior trump, which really is more compatible with its base) real progress can be made on what is the linchpin in all of this brutal mess: the one-state solution for israel/palestine. it may be worth it if that is the destination.

            getting the dems on record as opposing trump’s actions will further isolate the deepstate and, possibly with a little unraveling of 9-11 based on a higher electoral consciousness flowing from the full revelation of crossfire hurricane, etc., create an offer the likud/mossad cannot refuse.

        Here’s how I see it: Pompeo, Esper, and Milley cooked up a scheme to expand our presence in Iraq. They bombed those garages and trucks in N Iraq and Syria, knowing there would be a response, then headed down to Florida and tried to force Trump into an expansion. Trump did them one better.

        I had suggested that Trump told them the only escalation he would sanction would be to blow up Tehran, and ordered them to go own the problem themselves and fix the problem THEY created. I think I was not too far off.

        Basically, I think Trump said “You want escalation? I’ll GIVE you escalation.” He then ordered the elimination of the highest ranking Iranian in Iraq, along with the head of the militia he was running. Then they blew up more militia leaders and have been rounding up as many militia members as they can find as fast as they can find them.

        I expect the Trump end game, what this is leading up to, is a near total neutralization of the militias, at which point we tie a ribbon around it, hand it all over to the Iraq government and say “Here you go. Fixed it for you. Goodbye, and good luck.” And we’re out of there except for forces sufficient to defend the embassy compound.

        Not what Pompeo and Esper and Milley had in mind when they took their little trip to Florida. Teach ’em to mess with The Boss.

        Whoa there. Don’t rush to conclusions. You must be living in an alternative universe. To help out, I’ll give you a peek at the headlines in 2024:

        Both John Kerry and Hillary Clinton came under withering enemy sniper fire in January 2020 while helping evacuate the American embassy in Iraq and were barely able to escape with their lives. John Kerry awarded himself 5 new medals to throw over the fence at the White House. Schedule to be announced and coordinated with CNN in the coming weeks.

        Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren claimed she was part Iranian and told the MSM that President Trump should be impeached for contempt of Mullahs.

        Then Joe Biden threatened the entire QUDs force that he and Corn Pop would take them out in the dessert by the swimming pool and kick their ass if they ever refused the pallets of cash. But that wasn’t enough, Joe also told the Mullahs that they also needed to hire Hunter to serve on their Grand Counsel or their funding would dry up.

Keep well away from internal Muslim wars in terms of boots on the ground, after all they’ve been chewing on this one since AD 635. Trump has the right idea, keep them short of money and isolated then periodically lop off the top 3 to 5 layers of their Command to keep them cautious and pretty much ineffective, then keep your ear to the ground and your guard up until its time to do it again. Do that and they will get sick of it before the West does, Lefties and Democrats aside that is.

            If the US had not gone in and made major changes in the Sunni/Shiite political power distribution after the Iraq war, I would agree with you. The problem is that we went in, overthrew the existing power structure, changed the power structure in the military/political body, started on helping them to institute a democracy and then bailed on them under obama.

            ISIS came in, with substantial funding from the USA, courtesy of the Kenyan named Obama. Obama wanted anarchy in the Middle East as well as in the USA. He achieved that goal.

                Earlier today in one comment section on CTH I saw a video of Judge Joe (I think that is the name) discussing 0bama and George H.W. Bush on a radio show. It is a very interesting video about how H.W. Bush has known Barry Sotero since he was young child and how he would get candy from H.W.

                He concluded that the reason George W. Bush gives candy to 0bamas is based on that past tradition started by his Dad. (I have paraphrased last sentence but that is the essence of why Bush gives 0bamas candy when they meet)

                I will try and lookup that comment / video and will try to post it for you.

      Iran has fomented hatred and terror for decades. American leaders have taken a tack that has us where we are today.

      President Trump has a much different perspective. He sees a ;specific strategy. He is now tactically working within that strategy and his evolving perspective. He is employing muscle due to others using muscle against America and our allies.

      He intends to use maximum muscle where it may lead those to whom he uses such muscle to come to a table, present their point of view and listen to his point of view, then see if they can find a solution that works for both.

        the use of military power IS the fundamental reasons why America…It’s people are not subjecated to the whims of foreign powers…

        it IS also that simple.

        the supremacy of military power must be demonstrated.

        We can argue all day long (and it’s worth a healthy debate) whether this or that is the correct judicious exercise of military power…

        the reality remains.. foreign countries will assert their influence UPON the US interests and displace them….because that’s the reality..that’s the goal. it’s what makes the world go around.

        so when I see a good reason to gloves off against a tyrant country that hoists a death cult religion to invigorate its mandates…and has proven to be a deadly foe that has killed US persons..over a very long period of time…It makes me proud to be an American..It makes me feel safer. It makes me proud. It makes me have hope this world isn’t going sideways down in the crapper.

        some things are timeless and universal.

        when a punk country want to screw with you…and you allow it to happen…you own that…it’s your fault….

        when you decide time’s up and do something about it…that is your moral responsibility to do what is necessary and correct and proper.

        This commander in chief understands his duty.

        I have to admire that. (It has taken me quite a bit of time to get over my own personal views about the person, trump…I see him, properly now, as the President of the United States. He earns that respect…not because he just happens to eat food at the house..but because he has demonstrated the awesome responsibilities to act with military power against enemies that threaten the United States, its interests, and its allies.

        I am sure right now, I could go read the europe media lecturing how this president is again starting another ME war…Ultimately, over time, this president and his actions are going to change the world. And the current set of clowns in DC who will be tossed overboard in the next year or so, will provide a good road map for european citizens (and many other nation states) to rally their own “spring”.

        I pray for this.

          As Mike Pence said, there will be war. Just as long as there are despots desperate to hold onto power and to gain power over their neighbors. These must be dealt with eventually, and better sooner when they are weak than later when they are larger and stronger. Trump likes to use economic warfare instead of sending troops. I’m hoping this along with limited, proportionate military response will eventually succeed. We’ll see.

    Trump suckered Iran to attack our embassy in Iraq. We have weak response. Then Salami (sp) flies into Iraq to make more trouble. We kill him and others while they are in Iraq, not Iran. No war declared. We are covered by AUMF for protecting our embassy people. Similar strategy to suckering Pelosi into focusing on Ukraine which hurts exposing Biden.

      The United States has paid Iraq Billions of Dollars a year, for many years. That is on top of all else we have done for them. The people of Iraq don’t want to be dominated & controlled by Iran, but ultimately, that is their choice. Over the last 15 years, Iran has gained more….
      ….and more control over Iraq, and the people of Iraq are not happy with that. It will never end well!

      This tweet is the order to CHOOSE in Trumps words. The actions are the part that is forcing the issue. No more double dealing with the US. I bet that call with Pompeo went a little something along the lines of the games are over its time to choose period.

      Just like Germany with pitiful for GDP military demanding US do more vs Russia while doing side deal pipelines feeding Russia. Or SA GCC choose continued support of radical islam or US. Or China pretending to be a innocent 3rd party with Norks while holding the leash. Etc… the double dealing backstabbing of the US is over this is how a American America 1st pres should act and TRUMP is the first American President of my lifetime.

    It’s beginning to look like we’re realigning the Popular Mobilization Front (PMF) by cutting off the heads of the Shiite militia groups in it. Sure Soleimani was sauteed but al-Muhandis, head of the PMF was toasted to a golden crisp too. It’s said that in the order of threat to the situation in Iraq Muhandis was a more immediate issue than was Soleimani and much harder to replace.

    Now we hear that Shubul al-Zaidi, commander of the al-Quds-connected Imam Ali Brigades component of the PMF and heavily thought to be al-Muhandis’ successor is roasted to a turn, makes me wonder which of the remaining six Shiite heads of the PMF will be tossed on the barbie.

    Iraq (with help) formed the PMF with a Sunni and a Shiite component to fight ISIS but it appears now that the ISIS threat is gone that the heavily-connected-to-Iran Shiite groups may be conspiring with Iran to do the dirty in Iraq. Looks like we’re cleaning up the Shiite we don’t need and is starting to stink up the place.

    Stay tuned, sports fans, to see who rockets to the number one slot in the DoD hit list!

  15. an interesting take:

    We’re witnessing the death of the Iran regime and their death throes toward the US. I’ve been following Iran’s involvement in Iraq closely for over a year because I have a significant financial investment there. Iraq is on the cusp of enacting their monetary reforms, which will add
    value to their currency and allow their markets to open up
    internationally. It will also provide the HCL law, which pays all Iraqi citizens an oil revenue stipend like Kuwaitis receive. The reforms have been hampered by the Iranian puppets in the Iraqi leadership and parliament, which has perpetuated the ongoing 30% unemployment rate while the corrupt politicians get rich. That’s is the backdrop of the situation, and these are the three most important points to know right now:
    1) The vast majority of Iraqis support the US strikes against Iranian militias, who have killed over 500 Iraqi protestors and wounded or kidnapped thousands more. Iraqis have been continuously protesting since October to purge their government of the Iranian puppets who facilitate the theft of their oil revenue, so the militias are trying to suppress them. That’s also why Iraqi political leaders are lashing out at the US — not because of Iraqi sovereignty, but to defend Iranian interests.
    The protests have so far resulted in new elections laws passing, a special election scheduled, and the resignation of the Iran-backed Prime Minister, Abdul Mahdi, who is in office temporarily until the special election. So when Mahdi criticizes Trump, know that the Iraqi people overwhelmingly oppose Mahdi’s statements.
    2) The theft of Iraqi oil revenue is the only lifeline Iran has under the sanctions, which their religious class has admitted is bankrupting them. Iranian citizens in Iran are still in revolt and burning down banks to support the US efforts to suffocate the regime. When the regime is no longer able to pay their military, the regime will fall. It’s getting close.
    3) The new election law passed by parliament will discontinue the appointment of Prime Minister candidates by the large Iran-backed political parties, and instead only accept candidates from regional districts (tribes, really), which means the candidates nominated will be anti-Iran and pro US. I predict the next PM will be Abdul-Ghani al-Asadi. All this adds up to REGIME CHANGE IN IRAN. And soon.

      I got some responses in the last page to my post. But it was early up. I had replied and take a strong issue against further senseless involvement in Middle East. They say tolerating evil makes you evil, so I am clearing my conscious and posted this reply:

      “Why the are we in Iraq? Is it not Iran’s right to exist as a country not surrounded by American bases? Is it not Iraq’s right to be friends with whoever the f*** they want to be friends with? Why are we striking Iranians after Iraq government has explicitly told U.S. to stand down? Why are we subjugating two nations AGAINST THEIR WILL? Was that the non interference policy of our Founding Fathers? Would they approve any of this??”

      That is it. You boomers love your wars and you’ll die for your wars. I hope another principled man stands soon for the rest of us who want no part of Israel’s/Saudi’s tangled politics dragging us into eternal wars.

        When the Iranians are booted out of Iraq, and Iraqis citizens get control and individual benefit from their oil revenues, Iraq will become a stable independent country.

        Iran is fighting for control of Iraq as a last ditch effort to prop up their failing regime.

        Trump is simply applying minimum power at the most advantageous point for maximum effect. Only a few Iranians and their lackeys on Iraqi soil need to be droned before the rest flee.

          You did not need to reply to me. Its clear I’m at a crossroads with the rest of CTH who will follow Trump to war with Iran if (when) it goes to that. But I disagree that we are liberating Iraq from Iran. Iraq is naturally heading towards Iran as a consquence of Iran helping them against ISIS. Soleimani was the key figure they, which is how he earned his in-way into Iraqi government. Furthermore, Iraqi government explicitly condemned strikes a few days ago which killed 25 Iranis. Yet, we are simply pretending Iraq is our clay, and Iran must be kicked out by any means necessary. PLEASE try to get your news outside of the sphere of Fox News and conservative radio hosts. They sold us the Iraq war, the Afghanistan war, and are now very happily selling us Iran war.

          This will only bring more bloodshed. Iranian proxies will retaliate, and I know we will kill 10 Iranians for every 1 American killed, but this is war we should NOT EVEN BE FIGHTING. We need to get out of Iraq and close our damned embassy there. I am hoping someone more principled stands against Pence or whichever pro-war neocon republican Trump appoints after 2024.

            The Mohammedans of the founders’ time believed the same thing Islam believes today. It’s not propaganda. Islam is expansionist. By the sword. Violent conquest and trickery is the only way it can advance. It has nothing positive to offer any living thing.

            Since the establishment of the Muslim Brotherhood, soon after the fall of the Ottoman Empire in the early 1920’s, their goal has been an Islamic reformation, which they have accomplished, infiltration into this country, as well as Europe and the rest of the world to force submission to shariah to establish their prime directive…a worldwide caliphate. That is no different than what was done in Mohammed’s day. Now, transportation and communication is just more conducive. And they have been enabled by the globalists to be their agents of chaos. Now there’s your propaganda. On both sides.

            It’s not Trump’s fault we’re in the middle east. He didn’t have anything to with the post-WWI Sykes-Picot Agreement that divided up the middle east into countries and created new ones. He had nothing to do with the establishment of Israel. We’re in the middle east and the jihadists are here, whether we like the facts or not. 

            I’d like to wall off the Mohammedans and let them fight to the last man, but it’s not that easy. Islam understands nothing but who’s the meanest son of a bitch in the valley. Islam respects nothing but raw power. Treaties aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. You cannot trust anyone whose god demands they lie, cheat, steal, rape, terrorize and kill to advance their agenda of forcing their “loving” god’s perverse and oppressive law onto everyone else. 

            You want out of the middle east? I, and most other people, do too, but I and many others know Islamic doctrine and it changes the game from the same old same old into one that’s so foreign most westerners can’t perceive it. For Islam, your western world view is your weakness. Islam is here right now. Not because we’re there, but because it’s Islam’s most important duty to kill you or force you to submit.Yeah, they hate us being there, but they don’t hate us because we’re there. They hate us because their tiny insecure god commands it. Foreign and domestic jihadists are tethered. There is no such thing as a lone wolf jihadist. 

            You have three choices with Islam: Die, submit or crush it. That’s it. I’ll take Door #3, Bob. Then get out and never play this deceptive game again. That will require the whole world to learn the truth about Islam…again. I can give you some original Islamic references if you’d like to get a head start…not to make a pun, but it’s pretty good one.

        Good point – but I don’t read news articles with headlines that U.S> bases surrounding Iran have stopped Iran’s oil tankers or U.S. bases have led attack on Iranian Embassy.

        “Is it not Iraq’s right to be friends with whoever the f*** they want to be friends with?”

        If you are suggesting that Iraq wants to be friend with Iran and it is US telling them not to be then I think you are mistaken. Not sure if you are aware but Iran and Iraq fought for years against each other.

        “Why are we striking Iranians after Iraq government has explicitly told U.S. to stand down?” – It is simple, they attached U.S. first (attack on embassy is considered attack on U.S. soil)/ If Iraq would have taken care of the attackers then I am sure President Trump would not have ordered the strikes.

        Your assertion of “For nearly 150 years we were free of any conflict save for some pirate business.” is something that anyone with even a little knowledge of American history can easily refute.

        Even the more major wars and conflicts destroy your argument about being free of conflict for nearly 150 years.

        I am an Army veteran. The arguments you presented in such antisemitic fashion are not arguments that are talked about among the troops except for among other antisemites like you.

        And even you must surely recognize that you are antisemitic.

        As I said, you are provably wrong on the assertion you made. As I have already proven. There are other things where you are provably wrong, too. But I suspect you won’t want to admit what others so readily see.

    Maximum impact with minimum resource deployment. Strategic military martial arts. Trump has got some great strategists working overtime on this campaign. “There is nothing you can do!” has got to be the most discussed statement in Iran right now.

    “President Donald Trump is in Saudi Arabia, his first stop on his first foreign trip. He attended the opening of the “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology” with Egypt’s President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman…which featured this glowing globe, aka orb.” [BuzzFeed News, 5.22.17]. Perhaps, Tillerson, Mattis, Bolton, and Kelly didn’t like “The Don’s” ME Exit Strategy–or the fact that he had one. Think this has been in the works for awhile, just waiting for the right time. LOL.

    One thing. All of these co-ordinated attacks are in my opinion shaping up to hurt and hurt badly the IRGC they already have replaced Soleimani with a underling and he is just a substitute This my friends is the beginning of the end for the Iran regime.. Also I hear that some IRGC people may be

        But in every organization though there is a power struggle. Now that Soleimani has been eliminated I wouldn’t be too sure that his underlings will be forever the heirs to his throne. They likely have to fight to keep it.

        The German officer corp in 1944 wanted to kill Hilter. His own generals wanted him dead. It all depends on the amount of leverage President Trump applies to Iran. How much he makes them hurt.

      I have no doubt that Soleimani was the only one who really knew all the levers available to Iran. He no doubt took a lot of his contacts with him and no other replacement would have the absolute authority he had.

      I have a long time Iranian friend. He came here right after the revolution and has become successful and happy here. He still doesn’t like the US applying it’s power around the world so he would often align with Iran the country but still despise the Mullahs. He often says the mullahs are much worse than the Shah ever was. He HATES Trump so he very often has a TDS-infected slant on things. But as to Soleimani, he said “He deserved it. F-him.” He rarely swears. I think the past years when Soleimani puts down internal dissent has really turned the public, even more so, than before.

    The Iraqi strikes now are in the pattern we saw later surge. Strikes, captured intelligence/prisoners, more strikes based on the captured intelligence within hours.

    Rinse & repeat with more strikes until the intelligence trail goes cold.

    And very likely the PMF movement patterns and leadership relations have been very well bugged for the better part of a year before the trigger was pulled on General Soleimani.

    Yes theasdgamer. I don’t get the “happiness” and “glee” that this General has supposedly been killed. Even my local newspaper wrote the General has reportedly been killed twice before. And that the NYT (CIA) wrote a basic obituary about this attack hours before.sends my spidey hairs up.
    Feel like I’m watching a rerun of Obama, Hilary etal in the Situation Room while Bin Laden was “supposedly” killed and captured on film, despite numerous credible sources stating that he died of kidney failure long ago. Wonder why all or most of those sources as well as the Bengazi team are no longer with us either. Yea, me too.
    Something isn’t right. Taking credit for his death is so uncharacteristic of President Trump: as if he is giving his A okay to start another regime change war. The Iranian’s have OIL. It is theirs as a sovereign nation. Just like the poppies in Afghanistan used to be.
    Iranian leadership may be repressive for sure. But they have not gone around the world starting wars like the US has. Their fights in the region have been mainly self-defensive, even if they align with “terrorist groups” who formed over the years mainly due to the partition of the Middle Eastern lands for Jewish refugees. Imagine if the state of Texas for example were “partitioned” to accept a boat of refugees?
    Endless wars. Factions. A Texan Hezbolah for sure.
    Israel has nuclear weapons and has an itch to destroy Iran that won’t feel scratched until they destroy the very idea of Iran. And woe to the whole Middle East if Iran will use their weapons as well. Who benefits from that?

      So not everyone in this place is a neocon zionist nuthugger ready to sell America’s treasure on a platter to israel. Completely agree with everything you have said. Iran is not our war to fight. Yet, Trump has effectively declared war on Iran, by killing their No.2 in a country that explicitly ordered U.S. to quit striking Iranians on their soil.

      Any retaliation from Iran is now natural and expected. Our government is a rotten mess from top to bottom.

          Iraq is a sovereign country which we invaded on an ILLEGAL war. Iran has a right to defend itself and Iraq has an ABSOLUTE RIGHT to ally with Iran if they feel like. When ISIS made Iraqi military piss in their pants, it was Soleimani’s factions that propped Iraqi military back up.

          “The Iranians have sponsored anti Western murdering terrorism all over the world.”
          That’s Saudi Arabia. Sunni Salafist Islam is what bread the likes of Al Qaeda, which committed 9/11, and multiple hijackers were literally Saudis. Yet, our zionist government LOVES to kiss their arses. Iran helped out with cleaning up ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

          “As long as PDJT is killing Islamofascists I’m a happy camper.”
          Careful you may hurt PDJT’s feelings for the Saudis! He loves their monarch.

          Also say loudly this is about your lust for zionism and its quest against shia muslims. Don’t hide behind American identity. True American identity independent of Israel/Islam.

                  The world is watching America subjugate nations just because it can, with ILLEGAL strikes built upon ILLEGAL invasions. Not even for its own people, but for a foreign tribe. How silly is that? Israel knew Saddam had no WMDs, yet they goaded us into toppling him. Good thing is, the law of karma is a very special thing in the universe. Zog will get what’s coming to it, for displacing and killing MILLIONS of civillian women and children, and then getting off to the thought of it.

    Much as I can’t stand our never ending military action in the region, and attack by Iran on sovereign US territory has to be addressed. It’s the largest US embassy in the world, I think. It’s tragic that back during the Bush Administration we knew damn well that Iran was mainly responsible for deaths of US troops, but nothing was done about it. That Iranians appear to be running for their lives brings me a measure of satisfaction that there’s a new sheriff in town.

    Imagine all the lives that might have been saved if we had done this back in 2006 instead of using Iraq to monetize permanent war and turn it into a jobs program. It’s a lot easier to build a police state in a country that doesn’t win its wars…
