“The Americans are in Iraq on a mission of destruction,” according to Kevin Barrett, an American scholar, and political commentator.
The Pentagon on Sunday announced that two US troops have been killed by “enemy forces” while accompanying Iraqi security forces in Iraq.
US Central Command said in a statement on Monday that the service members were killed during a mission against Daesh terrorists in a mountainous area of north-central Iraq.
The statement did not publicly identify them with the permission of their families, in accordance with the US Department of Defense policy.
“Well, the Pentagon just announced that two more American soldiers have been killed by what they called enemy forces in Iraq. The term enemy forces could refer, of course, to all sorts of things because the United States is in Iraq as an occupier and an aggressor.
And under international law, every Iraqi has the right if not the duty to use force to expel the occupying power. So pretty much everybody in Iraq would be considered an enemy of the occupation,” said Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a Ph.D. in Islamic and Arabic Studies.
