US mission could expand to more bases in Iraq: Pentagon

An American military trainer shows an Iraqi soldier how to use a collimator to calibrate the gun barrel of an Abrams tank during a training session at the Taji base complex, north of Baghdad on January 7, 2015The United States is considering setting up additional bases in Iraq similar to a new hub planned in Anbar province to help Iraqi forces battle the Islamic State group, the Pentagon said Thursday. Establishing more bases to get US military advisers closer to the battlefront would likely require yet more American troops to deploy to Iraq beyond the 450 reinforcements announced by the White House on Wednesday. The Pentagon raised the possibility of more bases a day after President Barack Obama’s administration unveiled plans to send dozens of advisers to Anbar to help Iraqi forces eventually recapture Ramadi, which fell to the IS jihadists last month.
