US plans to establish military base in Kurdistan

MEMO | February 10, 2015

The United States is planning to establish a military base in the Iraqi Kurdistan town of Erbil, the regional capital. The intention is to provide logistical support to military aircraft deployed against ISIS positions, it has been report by Anadolu.

A spokesperson for the Peshmerga Ministry, which looks after military affairs for the autonomous Kurdish government, said on Monday that military officials and aircraft will be based in Erbil as soon as construction work is finished. “The aircraft will carry out surveillance,” said Helgurt Hikmet, “but those on bombing missions will not take off from the new base.” He did not disclose how many aircraft will be based in Erbil, but said that all 60 member states of the coalition fighting ISIS could make use of the new facilities.

The US-led coalition has launched numerous airstrikes against ISIS targets in both Iraq and Syria in recent months.

Hikmet added that military advisors from eight countries are helping to train Peshmerga personnel.

  1. What a surprise!!!

    Will it be next to the Israeli green zone and military base at Kirkuk?

    The whole plan is for a war to kill as many of Israel’s neighbors while re-establishing the Rothschild Pipeline that was built in 1948 from Kirkuk to Haifa and at the same time, making huge profits for the Rothschild Bankers from money they printed out of thin air and loaned to us for the cost of the war.

    It’s just too bad that we couldn’t print out more ill informed American soldiers out of thin air when they die for this banker’s war.

    I know we aren’t supposed to write back, but I was hoping you could Google this info because it would make interesting reading for your subscribers.
