Jens Stoltenberg, who serves as Secretary General for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), has announced that the troop total in Iraq will be increasing massively in the upcoming years.
Stoltenberg announced earlier this week that 4,000 troops will eventually be deployed to Iraq, an eight-fold increase from the current total of 500. They are expanding the footprint in the Middle Eastern nation under the guise of supporting “Iraqi forces as they fight terrorism and ensure that ISIS does not return.”
“Increases in troop numbers will be incremental,” he said.
NATO is also working on increasing tensions with Afghanistan in order to extend what is already the longest conflict in U.S. history. They are not committing to a May 1 withdrawal timeline, a peace deal that was negotiated by the Trump administration, as the military-industrial complex reclaims power in the Biden regime.
“The talks are fragile and progress is slow,” Stoltenberg said. “We are faced with many dilemmas.”
Liberty Conservative News has reported on Biden being the chosen candidate of the War Party, who coalesced around the mush-brained career politician in the months leading up to last year’s election:
“Like Donald Trump, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has talked about ending America’s “forever” wars in the Middle East.
However, based on the slate of foreign policy endorsements Biden has received, there’s good reason to believe that Biden will not follow through with these promises. On August 27, 2020, a number of foreign policy officials from the Bush administration and aides to failed presidential candidate John McCain endorsed Biden’s presidency. Furthermore, retired General Stanley McChrystal endorsed Biden’s presidential bid on October 1.
McChrystal was one of the leading generals during the Obama era who was the commander of American forces in Afghanistan from 2009 to 2010. The retired general generated controversy in 2010 after he was quoted in a Rolling Stone piece mocking a number of leading civilian officials, which included Biden. McChrystal offered his apologies to Biden but ended up resigning on June 23, 2010.
Even after his resignation, McChrystal did not waver in his support for then-President Barack Obama’s Afghanistan strategy. In a statement that he released on the day of his resignation, in which he said that he continued to “strongly support the president’s [Obama} strategy in Afghanistan.” He resigned out of respect and for the sake of maintaining the integrity of the mission.”
The defense contractors who run NATO and call the shots at the Pentagon will be enjoying the next four years as more troops are put through the meat grinder to ensure their massive profit margins.
