Clinton on US advisers in Iraq

Howard Terry | 12 October, 2016, 03:04

Iraq's supreme court on Monday ruled against a decision by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to scrap three vice-president positions.

Abadi condemned the presence of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil as violation of Iraq's sovereignty, pointing out that the Turkish military deployment in Iraq is unacceptable for bilateral relations between Baghdad and Ankara, Press-TV reports.

Retaking Iraq's Daish-held city of Mosul from that terrorist group would be much easier if the campaign is coordinated between Baghdad and Ankara, a former Iraqi army chief-of-staff told Anadolu Agency on Friday.

IS, which frequently targets Shiite Muslims, whom it considers heretics, issued a statement claiming the attack and said it was carried out by a suicide bomber - an account confirmed by two interior ministry officials.

US military leaders refuse to provide details or timelines for the start of the Mosul campaign, but they do discuss ongoing operations to prepare for the battle.

Trump criticized such announcements during Sunday's debate with Democrat Hillary Clinton.

An official for Iraq's Asaib ahl al-Haq warned Turkey doesn't get to make the decision of whether or not they get to participate in the invasion, and warned Turkish troops involved will be treated the same as the ISIS fighters the invasion is targeting. "Well, all of these bad leaders from ISIS are leaving Mosul", Trump said, using another acronym for the Islamic State. "Why can't they do something secretively, where they go in and they knock out the leadership?"

In a speech delivered in Istanbul, Erdogan also said Turkish troops wouldn't withdraw from a base near Mosul, saying the Turkish army wouldn't take orders from Baghdad.

USA -led coalition airstrikes and ground fighting have depleted the Islamic State's territory in Iraq and Syria in a big way, reportedly by 16 percent over just 9 months, a new study has found. "The army of the Republic of Turkey has not lost its standing so as to take instructions from you", he said.
