Moreover, Pompeo evidently reiterated certain threats that had been made to the previous Prime Minister, Abdul-Mahdi, as previously reported in January (see South Front, Moon of Alabama, Mint Press News). Reading between the lines (with our emphasis)…

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a call with Iraq’s Prime Minister-designate Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi on Sunday, “stressed Iraq’s obligation to protect US and coalition diplomats, forces, and facilities,” State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said in a readout of the call. “Secretary Pompeo and Prime Minister-designate Allawi discussed the protest movement and the urgency with which Iraq’s next government must put an end to the killing of protesters, seek justice for those killed and wounded, and address their legitimate grievances.”

“We are beginning to engage with the government of Iraq such as it is, on the nature of our strategic relationship,” including economic and diplomatic issues and our presence on the ground, Schenker said today, adding there will not be a withdrawal of US forces from Iraq.
