Iraq: Bombs Away!

OBAMA ONCE AGAIN FIGHTING THE “DUMB WAR”

American F-18 fighter planes dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on suspected artillery sites in Northern Iraq on Friday, escalating a conflict that began late Thursday with “coalition” airstrikes.

The artillery sites – reportedly operated by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) – were targeted one day after U.S. president Barack Obama authorized the use of military force in Iraq.

Obama – who did not receive congressional approval for the airstrikes – has previously referred to America’s eight-year engagement in Iraq as a “dumb war” and the “wrong war.”  In fact he campaigned for president in 2008 on removing American forces from Iraq, a goal which was accomplished in December 2011.

Since then, Iraq has descended into chaos – which Obama believes he must correct with military action.

“Today, America is coming to help,” he said in authorizing the airstrikes.

Huh?

What about the millions of Americans  who need help as a result of his evisceration of the middle class?  Oh right … they’re the ones Obama will stick with the bill for these airstrikes.

Look, we fully understand that terrible things are going on in Iraq between Sunni and Shiite Muslims (thanks to Western-drawn borders).  We’ve all heard the horror stories about tens of thousands of refugees trapped on Mount Sinjar with no food or water.  And about the ISIS soldiers lurking at the base of the mountain waiting to kill them.

We get it: It’s terrible.  But it’s also not our problem .

More to the point: What evidence is there to suggest our intervention is going to do anything to help?

These people are going to kill each other, pure and simple.  Same thing in the Israeli-Gaza fight.  There’s nothing we can do to stop it.  In fact the more we meddle in their affairs, the more they want to kill us , too.

The U.S. government utterly and completely fabricated the basis for its 2003 invasion of Iraq – a conflict that cost thousands of American lives and trillions of our tax dollars.  Now faced with the abject failure of this intervention – notably the emergence of an al-Qaeda-led rebellion against the U.S.-backed “democratic” government in Baghdad – our politicians want to tell us “something must be done” in the country.

Again.

Sheesh …

Two months ago, Obama sent military advisors to Iraq.  Now U.S. planes are bombing ISIS targets – ostensibly to avoid a “humanitarian catastrophe.”

And of course Obama is vowing that “no combat troops” will be sent to Iraq – a promise we’ve all heard before.

“I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq, so even as we support Iraqis as they take the fight to these terrorists American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq,” Obama vowed.

If that’s the case, why get involved at all?  Especially seeing how American tax money being used to bomb ISIS in one country and support it in another?

Perhaps U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham could answer that question …

Here’s the bottom line: No matter how bad things are in Iraq, the situation on the ground there is proof positive that American intervention does not help .

Obama may be doing it…but this is the result of RonPaul ‘Bury-Your-Head’ foreign policy. Liberals and Liberal-tarians are united in non-intervention, until it becomes too barbaric to ignore…They the Liberal-Tarians run and hide, instead of answer.

The “ignore-evil as it festers” crowd will be A-OK w/ anything their soul-mate, Obama does…while they wanted Bush-Cheney executed as War Criminals for doing what Congress told them to do…

Obama is just doing this because the slaughter of 40,000 Christians would have confirmed to even his followers his disdain for Christianity.
If it wasn’t for the mid-term elections he wouldn’t be helping the Christians in Iraq and would have stood beside Hamas.

The questions though is ISIS more or less of a threat than Iran. In the long run Iran is a greater threat and if ISIS really believes they are the new caliphate they are going to have to fight Iran at some point which will leave both of them weakened. As long as they make no direct threat to US interests let them conduct their affairs as they see fit. If they become a threat to Israel or other US interests wipe them off the map.

Karolyn August 8, 2014 at 1:45 pm

From what I heard, ISIS is even more of a threat than Al Qaeda ever was, especially since it has more of an organized military operation, and if it gains traction and followers, it could definitely be a threat to us and other countries. They were even too extreme for Al Qaeda and were kicked out. It has about 10,000 men and “has all the trappings of a state, with courts, schools and services.” Sounds very organized and scary.

“10,000 men”? Shit. Over a 1,000,000 WOMEN a year murder their own child via abortion in this country. ISIS don’t wanna fuck with the abortion crowd in this country.The abortion gang in this country are worse than ISIS if you have ever watched a video of ‘partial birth’ abortion.

TontoBubbaGoldstein August 8, 2014 at 8:01 pm

OTH, We also have courts schools and services….. and the capability to bomb, invade, and occupy countries anywhere in the world.

ISIS, of course, doesn’t have this capability.

Not even close.

And won’t.

Because once they have taken over Iraq and half of Syria, establish an Islamic caliphate, and capitalize on the world’s fifth largest oil reserve to fund their activities, they’ll be headed the great infidel’s (that’s us) way.

We should try to stunt them now before they can consolidate their power. Not to mention we should at least try to support our “ally” Iraq.

Obama is trying to salvage something from the steaming pile of manure left in the Middle East by G. W. Bush. The Middle East rested in a precarious state of political and social equilibrium until Bush’s needless invasion upset the balance. The status quo ante bellum may not have been to our liking, but it was roughly stable. The only winners in the region have been Iran, ISIS and U.S. defense contractors. Bush wanted to bring democratic values, and he did so, with the elections of Morsi in Egypt and Hamas candidates in Gaza. The Iraq blunder is the greatest national security disaster since we stumbled into Viet Nam. The unfolding of events has made the days of Saddam Hussein look good.

We have trained the air forces of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia and it’s time they showed their stuff against a bunch of Sunni extremists that everybody hates.
Then, let them negotiate the redrawing of the map of Iraq along ethnic lines, which seems to be the only way to solve those problems.

As deplorable as it might be, what is going on in Iraq is not a case of terrorism aimed at the US. It’s religious warfare between Muslim sects. ISIS is Sunni and the Iraqi government is Shia. They have been at each other’s throats for centuries…long before the British created Iraq, Iran, Syria, etc. Look at Ireland. The Brits divided the island and the Catholics and Protestants fought forever. The current situation is another example of what can happen when governments cross politics with religion. Unless, we are willing to redraw country borders in the Middle East to accommodate religious and ethnic groups, the US should not get involved. I do not believe there is any other political or diplomatic solution here… and military force will only help in the short run.
