Rex Tillerson: "Certainly, Iranian militias that are in Iraq, now that the fight against Da’esh and ISIS is coming to a close, those militias need to go home."


Ali Elami (through Interpreter): "The location of Iraq is very strategic. There’s oil, rivers. When Americans came and kicked out Saddam, they didn’t do it for our interests. They did it for oil and money. Iran has expanded here not for our sake. They did it for their own benefit."

Iraq & Iran "more like brothers"...

 


Iran and Iraq are now very close in everything they do. Keep in mind Iran wanted to get rid of the former leader of Iraq  just as Bush did so the back channels have been in operation for years. Iran has more say than we do there. By the way Iran was ready to help us in Afg war.

During the taking of Mosul there was little if no mention of Iran's role, except in lesser known media outlets.
