Panetta Announces U.S. Plan to Attack Iraqi Shi’ite Militias

Obama’s new defense secretary, Leon Panetta, has told troops in Iraq the U.S, plans to take on three Shi’ite militia groups in the country. He directly accused Iran of arming and motivating the militias.


CNN propaganda blames Iran for death of U.S. soldiers in Iraq after Gates said U.S. will stay there for years.

“We are very concerned about Iran and the weapons they are providing to extremists here in Iraq,” Panetta said in an address to troops in Baghdad. “In June we lost a hell of a lot of Americans as a result of those attacks. And we cannot just simply stand back and allow this to continue to happen.”

Panetta said the Pentagon will soon act against the militias. “Secondly, to do what we have to do unilaterally, to be able to go after those threats as well, and we’re doing that,” he said.

General Lloyd Austin, the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, did not comment on what specific measures unilateral action might involve, Reuters reports today. “I think what the secretary was pointing to was we’ll do what’s necessary to protect ourselves and that could include a host of things … so we’ll just leave it at that,” Austin said.

Three separate Iraqi militias are believed to be involved in attacks on U.S. occupation troops. In particular, officials point to the Hezbollah Brigades, said to be supported by Iran and trained by Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard and its special operations wing, the Quds Force.

The Pentagon believes the Hezbollah Brigades was established by the original Lebanese Hezbollah. It was created in response to the Israeli invasion and occupation of southern Lebanon in 1982 and states that it will resist “any imperialist power in Lebanon.”

In 2008, the U.S. specifically targeted the Hezbollah Brigades, the Army of the Righteous, and the Mahdi Army. The groups oppose the occupation of Iraq and have vowed to attack foreign troops.

The attacks increased in March after Obama went back on an election campaign promise to end the occupation. About 46,000 U.S. troops remain in Iraq, and those are supposed to leave by December 31 under the terms of a 2008 security agreement between Washington and Baghdad, according to the Pentagon.


New U.S. diplomatic presence in Basra “another type of occupation.”

In May, 75,000 Iraqis protested in Baghdad against the continuation of the U.S. occupation. The protest was organized a day after then Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said that American troops could remain in the country for years.

Panetta told the troops the U.S. invaded Iraq as a result of the attacks of September 11, 2011. “The reason you guys are here is because on 9/11 the United States got attacked, and 3,000 … innocent human beings got killed because of al Qaeda,” Panetta said. “And we’ve been fighting them as a result.”

Bush and the neocons pushed the false claim that Saddam Hussein allowed al-Qaeda to operate from Iraq. In 2007, the Pentagon admitted that Douglas Feith and the neocons invented the Hussein al-Qaeda link and used it as a propaganda ploy to push for the invasion of the country.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
