Quote: “BREAKING: The Pentagon has ordered military commanders to plan for an escalation of American combat in Iraq, issuing a directive last week to prepare a campaign to destroy an Iranian-backed militia group that has threatened more attacks against American troops – NYT”  I’d translate that as they want one more big push to rid Iraq of Iran so the RV can happen. If suspect major crushing sanctions to be put on Iraq if they don’t revalue their currency in the near future. Just my opinion.
