Iraq and the US Military Agenda

June 12, 2015 at 10:37 AM


Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.com appears on RT (June 11, 2015) to provide his analysis of the US decision to deploy troops to Iraq and the potential of US military bases in the country. Draitser explains that the US agenda has been, and remains, to divide Iraq’s military forces along sectarian lines in order to be able to maintain effective control over them and over Iraq’s political structures. He notes that, from the strategic perspective, this move has more to do with weakening Iranian influence than it does counter-terrorism.
