About 500 US Special Forces are training and advising a 30,000 man army of Iraqi soldiers in the offensive about to take place in Mosul, which we once won and which Obama ceded to ISIS with his rapid evacuation. The entire operation is being overseen by the commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani.
Soleimani coordinates moves with the US, Iraq and Kurdish forces. This means we likely give him valuable intelligence.
Obama timed it to three weeks before the election to help Hillary but the fact is the Iranian-backed Shiite militias are brutal and could create a new humanitarian crisis in Mosul where 1 million Sunni Arabs live.
Iran will be the big winners in this. It advances their plan for Middle East hegemony.
The head of the Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Force, General Qasem Soleimani, who directed covert operations abroad, is now a celebrity in Iran and is the subject of music videos, documentaries, and news reports.
Soleimani helped Shiite militias in Iraq slaughter U.S. soldiers. He sent copper-tiipped IEDs into Iraq, killing at least 500 of our soldiers and Marines in one effort alone, the Daily Beast reported.
He was given sanctions relief by the US and now he is overseeing our soldiers.
