Iraq to Complain to the UN Security Council Over US Aggression

Tell me again what it's called when you have forces in a foreign country that are defying the will of its government and killings its troops

After multiple US airstrikes in Iraq over the course of the past week, Iraq’s Foreign Ministry says they will submit a formal complaint to the UN Security Council about ongoing US aggression, and violation of Iraqi sovereignty.

Blaming Iraqi Shi’ite militias for rockets fired at US troops, the US attacked at least five bases, The US presents the attacks as retaliation against “Iran-backed” militias, but in practice these militias are part of Iraq’s security forces.

Attacking Iraqi security forces on Iraqi soil is problematic, even if the US sees it as justified. Iraqi officials are warning that the strikes are further destabilizing the situation, and Iraq can’t exactly afford that after months of anti-government protests.

This is not the first Iraqi compliant over US aggression. Iraq’s Foreign Ministry submitted a similar complaint to the UN in January over the US assassination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani and several Iraqi officials. Iraq similarly presented this as a sovereignty violation.

The problem for Iraq is that this won’t have any practical effect. The US position as a permanent member of the UN Security Council ensures a veto of any resolution criticizing their attacks on Iraq, so even if one was under consideration, which is unlikely, it wouldn’t go anywhere.

Iraq will get its country back….same as whole ME. The satanic bully is bankrupt and with market forces, the Corvid-19 pandemic and the entire global economy going belly up or down the pan….whatever you prefer, it’s final humiliation is a lot closer than anyone imagines. In February, the US was unable to pay the interest on its massive debts….ie bankrupt in name, forcing China and several other countries to refuse to sell goods for toilet paper money….America’s shelves will soon be completely empty, irrespective of Corvid-19. This is the end of the old order, what’s coming will be infinitely better for the whole of humanity !

Iraq complaining to the UN Security Council about jumurika, is like a kid complaining about his dad to his mom…mom tells dad, then kid gets spanked. Can’t these Iraqi brats just behave themselves and let the jUS tyrants run rough shod over them?

It’ll be an updated version of Vietnam with Black Hawks instead of Hueys.

You’re correct, Brion. Empires have never lasted long when they’ve occupied by brute force. On the contrary, empires are welcome only when they add to the condition of the occupied country for the better. That, not being the case, the American empire should fold and go home as they have little add to wherever they’ve gone by force. Cheers.

That situation in Iraq is simple outrageous as well as being against international law!
But the US doesn’t care about laws of the world or any individual state…
What we have is a militarized bully going into a sovereign country and raining terror on its citizens….all the while claiming that Russia is the aggressor of the world and should be curbed….Washington is a liar and a criminal, just like its president.

YES, The majority of the World, KNOWS all this with the exception of U.S. citizens, who seem impervious to the criminal behaviour of their military. Beats me what the Iraqis think they will achieve by complaining to the U.N. which has sided with the U.S. anyway. I’m reminded of an exchange of emails with an Iraqi way back, when the U.S. threatened to invade, said Iraqi was supporting such an ILLEGAL invasion as long as it got rid of Saddam. I cautioned her, and advised her to be careful what she wished for, she’d be replacing one dictator (who was America’s bitch anyway) with another, the U.S. of A. She shrugged it off,claimed it’d never happen. L.O.L. I wonder where she is these days.
