Who is bombing the ISIS?


A former high ranking CIA official in Baghdad tells Newsweek that Turkish jets carried out airstrikes on Islamic State (I.S.) militants threatening Kurdish refugees–an assertion that Ankara denies.

The White House, meanwhile, said it had launched humanitarian air drops to the beleaguered Kurds trapped by advancing I.S. forces in the northern part of Iraq and was considering air strikes to fend off an expected assault.

U.S. forces were placed “on a hair trigger,” according to NBC News, with a twofold priority: to provide humanitarian relief for refugees from Islamic State aggression and to protect U.S. officials on the ground.

The US?

Obama said in the statement from the White House the U.S. military is authorized to launch targeted airstrikes if Islamist militants advance toward American personnel in northern Iraq. Declaring that “America is coming to help,” he also said that the U.S. decided to conduct the drops to the 50,000 or so religious minorities stranded on a mountaintop in the country’s north, who have been forced to flee their homes as the militants advanced.

Over at the Daily Kos, they don’t know what to think.

When I read what IS is doing, including the threat to forcibly clitorectomize the women of Mosul, I can’t help but think if ever there is real justification for the use of US military force, this is one such occasion. But then I think about how arrogantly and recklessly the US inflicts force on other people, and how it always seems – from SE Asia to the present – how bad the results are, I don’t know what to think.

One thing is for sure at the Daily Kos, however, Obama needs to talk.

Given enough hate, propaganda, bigotry, and racism all human beings are capable of massacres. All countries do it in wartime, especially in modern wars were the high-tech bombs are too powerful not to kill everyone in very wide areas. Has Obama, or any major Western leader tried to talk to ISIS?

    That’s it! Try to talk to them. Sure they will engage you in conversation while they are sawing off your head with a rusty table knife. Talk about delusional morons, the Kos ‘tards are the most delusional.

    Leaving Iraq was to be Obama’s major accomplishment, and he fucked it up.

    Welcome back to Iraq, Mr. President. Ya stupid shit.

    Now comes the dick measuring….

    The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland.

    “I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media in a video interview posted online Thursday. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.”

    “We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added.

    Yeah, God isn’t willing.

      Humiliated? These pole-smoking camel-humpers spent nearly a decade taking pot shots and hit-and-run attacks because they were too scared to fight like men. The only Americans they ever had a snowball’s chance of humiliating, are the political class – but they don’t have any shame, so even they weren’t humiliated.

      Raise the flag of islam over the White House. That’ll give us all the justification we need to raze the entire capitol and start over… just as soon as we’re done wiping you pussies off the face of the planet.

      Fuck these cowards. They act like being manly is the highest form of living, then they hide – like bitches – behind their women and children.
