While reports have surfaced of John Kerry’s meetings with Iran officials, and Biden wanting diplomatic relations to be restructured, the US attack on Syria comes with some very questionable facts:
- Despite Trump’s withdrawal of troops in Iraq, NATO forces state that they will increase their presence from 500 personnel to 4000.
- A dozen rockets hit coalition forces outside of Kurdish controlled Erbil International Airport. A contractor was killed and nine others were wounded (although the original report claimed 5 and no names have been released). It is speculated the contractor killed was from South Africa.
- The US defense company, Sallyport, has its headquarters within the airbase providing services to Iraq’s f-16 program.
- Four rockets struck an airbase outside of Balad, north of Baghdad.
- The attack in Iraq occurred on February 20th by a Shia militant group called, Saraya Awliya al-Dam. In response, US military forces conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria.
- The strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).
- Seventeen people were killed, according to the Soros organization, Human Rights Watch. The attack was not approved by Congress – instead it was initiated via another Biden EO. Congress has stated that Biden’s EO authorizing the strikes was “unconstitutional’.
- And despite the newly appointed Secretary of Defense, Austin’s comments, the Iraqi Ministry denies that they exchanged intelligence before the US bombings in Syria. General Austin’s resume , despite his rank, is relatively absent of typical military commands.
- Kait’ib Hezbollah has claimed the attacks violate International Law and the sovereignty of Iraq.
- Regional experts claim Saraya Awliya al-Dam was NOT working with Hezbollah or any other pro-Iranian militia. And there is no evidence that they did other than a statement from US officials.
- Syria claims the US attacks came as Syria and Iraqi militia groups were engaged in anti-Isis operations.
NATO has released no statement regarding the attacks other than the reaffirmation of an increased presence in Iraq for the 4,000 troops and the assertion that NATO will do nothing without the approval of the Iraqi government.
AND AS USUAL – SOMETHING SEEMS AMISS:
On February 17th, Iranian President Rouhanni announced that Iran was ready to hold talks with the UN chief claiming they had no intention of stopping their collaborative work with the IAEA and inspections.
The contractor hired to maintain security for the Iraqi F-16’s is Sallyport. KS International, LLC states that Sallyport operates as a subsidiary under their umbrella. And Michael Baker International LLC, located in Lakewood, Colorado, claims KS International, Kaseman, Michael Baker Corporation and Sallyport are subsidiaries under their umbrella. KS Website no longer exists, and Sallypoint never had a website.
Their LinkedIn profile claims their clients include: DoD, Department of State, USAID, UN, World Bank and ‘others’. KS International LinkedIn of ‘people’ indicates special ops mercenaries.
Michael Baker International LLC claims ‘more than’ $1.3 billion in annual revenue.
In 2017 Sallyport came under scrutiny when internal investigators and staff revealed that while in Iraq securing the F-16’s, the company was a) involved in human trafficking for prostitution, b) smuggling high volumes of alcohol onto base with planes weighted so heavily one seesawed on the tarmac when landing c) security officials ‘allowed’ militia to steal generators on a flatbed truck, d) theft of an armoured SUV and a 60’ crane, and e) maintaining two separate set of books. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/sallyport-global-contractor-alcohol-theft-sex-trafficking=iraq=balad=ap/
The investigators and whistleblowers were immediately fired.
The investigations were all shutdown and Sallyport apparently continued its lucrative contract with the DoD.
So why would the DoD hire an unknown dirty contractor with no website or apparent history to ‘guard’ a couple F-16’s owned by Iraq that cost $30 million new and pay them $1.4 billion over the course of six years in an open contract knowing they are selling off US military equipment to local militias for profit? Call me crazy but that seems a bit odd.
What is the DoD really paying them to do? Because from what I know hiring mercenaries is a common DoD tactic – albeit payment is typically made in cash, and the contract is not written in ink.
Who really bombed the facility, because blaming some obscure newly formed tiny militia that has no ties to Iran but somehow acquired a whole bunch of rockets, seems a bit contrived.
And who really ordered the strike, because we all know Biden’s brain cells are shy of an amoeba? And General Lloyd Austin is not exactly the stellar military figure his rewritten bio relays.
Was the strike to cover up Sallyport’s irregularities? And then some yahoo decided it was a good excuse to revamp and instigate a new – old war in the Middle East? Because none of what we are being told seems to even remotely relay the truth much less skirt it. Bumbled and inept, the corruption is obvious.
The ONLY support that substantiates the claim that Saraya Awliya al-Dam claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks – comes from US ‘officials’ unnamed. The story regarding the attack would seem to be a circular fed initially to AP and then picked up verbatim by other MSM outlets which sounds like it was written by the Pentagon.
It seems a bit odd that right as Iran is working in collaboration with the UN and IAEA, they would authorize an unknown militia group to attack Iraqi Kurds and a US facility charged with protecting Iraqi F-16s. And given Sallyport has no viable website confirming the attack on them is not available.
In December, 2020 this report was released:
“Iraq’s F-16 fleet is no longer flying missions as part of the international coalition against the so-called Islamic State (IS) group, according to two Iraqi officials and two coalition spokespersons — a consequence of the mismanagement and alleged corruption that continues to plague the program.
Iraq Oil Report previously reported that severe problems at Balad Airbase had crippled the F-16 fleet. By quietly dropping the Iraqi F-16s from its air tasking order, the U.S.-led Global Coalition to Defeat Daesh has effectively codified its assessment that the multi-billion-dollar program is no longer fit for combat.”
Did the US destroy an already defunct and worthless airbase after spending $1.5 billion for security alone? Did the US create a false Iran bully to justify the destruction of an airbase? Was that airbase again mired in trafficking, prostitution and glaring sale of military property for profit? Did the preponderance of irregularities need to be quashed?
Illusions are the forte of our CIA, our FBI, our military, in conjunction with bought and paid for media to support that fakery.
What do you think?
