CHINA POURS $10 BILLION INTO IRAQI ARMY… BUT NATO STILL WON’T ACT

USUALLY neutral China announced it was pouring $10 billion into the Iraqi army today, to help the beleaguered country defend itself from barbaric ISIS forces.

The shock announcement came directly from the President of the People’s Republic of China, “in order to assist the country’s government in defending and reinforcing its border with Syria.”

The aid is expected to be divided in two, partly providing training for Iraq’s stretched army, and partly to buy a wealth of new military hardware, bringing Iraqi forces into the 21st century.

Even armed drones will be purchased under the funding scheme, according to China’s ambassador to the UN.

This fresh offer of support makes Uruguay’s previous pledge to take in a measly 10 refugee families look even more ludicrous.

    Dear Mr. Everett,
    The Republic of Iraq cannot confirm this information. China has stayed neutral concerning the Middle East and has not contacted Iraq in any way so we believe that it is just a made up rumour. Again.
    Cheers, Fuad Masum
