And off to war we go...back to bombing Iraq

President Obama has just announced targeted attacks on ISIS in Iraq, and somehow we are also going to rescue thousands of stranded and starving families with children who are up in the mountains. Who could object to that?

Perhaps the American people or their congress might have some objection to these national decisions being made at the sole discretion of our supreme leader.

The Pentagon must be embarrassed. According to the NY Times, the bombing began late today and the "Pentagon firmly denied that American forces had begun a bombing campaign" then, about 9:30PM Eastern time, President Obama announced the bombing campaign on global TV.

When will they ever learn, that bombing nations doesn't work in solving the world's problems?

More On Timing !

I don't think its a coincidence that as soon as a reported " thousands" of young men cross the USA's southern borders, with no jobs, and no prospects of employment except military employment, is another reason why wars never end and in the case of Iraq restart when things don't turn out the way they are supposed to.

"About Shell in Iraq

Shell has a long history in Iraq which began via a partnership with the Iraq Petroleum Company (IPC) during the 1920’s. Today, Shell is one of the largest investors in Iraq with a 45% stake in the Majnoon field with partners Petronas 30% and Iraqi state partner Missan Oil 25%. In addition, Shell holds a 44% stake in the Basrah Gas Company with partner South Gas Company 51% as the operator and Mitsubishi 5%. Shell is also a partner in the West Qurna-1 field redevelopment holding a minority 15% stake, with Exxon as the operator and the Iraqi State Partner. Shell Global Solutions signed three license agreements with the state-owned North Refineries Company of Iraq in Kirkuk to provide a kerosene hydrotreater and a vacuum gasoil hydrocracker unit. The licensed technologies will provide Kirkuk with an integrated solution that will help optimise operations at the new refinery. Shell lubricants are available in Iraqi via official distributors. Beyond our business interests, Shell is actively involved in training programs to increase local technical capacity, including women’s education and protection of Iraq’s environmental biodiversity in partnership with the United Nations."

Quit...

killing people you ignorant assholes! How far has death and murder gotten us?! We're now targeting those we helped materialize! Absolute and unfathomable retards.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

My perspective;

that I shared in an email to my blind neo-con friend who is of the mindset "we broke it, now we need to go fix it": is this...

"We did not strike this hornets nest over a decade to flush these people out so we could "wipe them off the face of the Earth" and rid the world of "terror"...as though it was some brilliant strategy by the Pentagon from the get go...

Tens of thousands of innocent have been killed in Iraq, and now more are in danger because of these ISIL/ISIS whatever they're called...but know this...we ARMED them, McCain and Obama both; this we planned, because a sectarian civil war and Balkanization of Iraq into an eventual Sunni, Shia, and Kurdish separate states is what they've wanted(Israel chiefly) from the beginning I now suspect. If they kill each other, then the West/NATO didn't kill them, we "intervened" and slowed it down or managed it or negotiated a "peaceful end to the bloodshed"(which I call horseshit because the onus of the whole thing is suspect since Iraq never attacked anyone here, or in the region to start with).

Anyway, let me state for the record, the Palestinians ARE NOT Islamic militants riding around Gaza in new Toyota pickups with 50 caliber machine guns, left over/abandoned United States military hardware and weapons either(such as the stinger missiles ISIS now has!); so for Israel to continue with the outright genocide and elimination/expulsion of those people from Gaza for the land grab is still exactly what I say it is...Israel just plowing the ground to take the Gaza Strip once and for all, then develop it; they just needed a pretense to begin the plunder, and Netanyahu used the 3 teenager kidnapping as an excuse, and everything is called "Hamas" to excuse it, and anyone criticizing Israel is called an anti-Semite and a Hitler-lover or a Nazi...which again is bull shit to any thinking person.

Now, internationally, Israel has lost the PR game with the Gaza attacks, and Netanyahu is hellbent on finishing what he started(and again, I said Israel can have it...but I said make a corridor and escort the people out rather than shoot fish in a barrel because you appear to be enjoying yourselves too much Israel!!!)...and as Netanyahu does his thing, Iraq Part 3 will commence and grab the world headlines, and the Iraq/ISIS thing will spill into Syria and Assad will be targeted to be taken out at the same time, and sympathy for Palestinian women and children will be pushed to the back page.

Nonetheless, you'll go ahead and cheer for it in your Michelle Bachmannway; but I think I know a little better what is going on..."

Linda Cross's picture

No one here is cheering

but the attitudes of those in power and those with influence is sickening. I was hearing O'Rielly about two days ago, condemning Obama and saying he must intervene in Iraq. The whole bloodthirsty mess of them in congress, like McCain and friends, were licking their chops to get involved. The United States has destroyed what was once a beautiful, advanced, educated and developed country in the name of religion. Bush unleashed all the pent up prejudices; you can't be prejudiced against ethnic groups or any other groups, but have at it against Muslims! After a decade of killing, can't they realize that war does not solve any of the world's problems.

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

My neo-con pal was cheering...

...you know...U.S.A.....U.S.A.....U.S.A....

Sounds like these terrorists

are doing what the US did when they invaded Iraq, especially since the US armed them when they were in Syria.

People the cut the heads off

People that cut the heads off of children should be taken out. People that do that fall below the level of humankind. They should be destroyed. Like rabid animals. ISIS the religion of demons.

Money talks and dogs bark

Nice double standard

So beheading children is unacceptable, but burning and blowing them to smithereens is heroic and necessary? The manner of death is just a matter of killing style. Our style is more hip and modern. But murder is murder.

Does this make you proud of the ol red, white, and blue?
Girl, four, left with horrific burns after U.S. drone attack in Pakistan

BTW, ISIS is not a religion.

So let's go bomb them and kill some more innocent civilians.

How is that any better then what they are doing. If you want to stop all this nonsense then just pass a law that says any military action in a foreign country will involve sending the fighting age men and women children and blood relatives of the Congressmen and President as the initial ground invasion. How many wars do you think we would be involved in then? You would think none but these bunch of sub humans we have running the government would probably kill their own to further the agenda.

We just marched in ....

We should just march out ... Bring the troops home - NOW!

In the first four minutes...

…of this eight-plus minute address, Obama used the word "mountain" six times, and the word "families/children" five times.

Carefully crafted images meant specifically for the sheeple.

I also love it when he beats his chest with the "I've removed the majority of combat troops from Afghanistan and Iraq" line.

(Psst…the "majority" removed still leaves THOUSANDS - remember, he had TRIPLED the number in Afghanistan - in each country, and the NON-"combat" troops - still soldiers with arms - add thousands more to the total.)

The distorter-in-chief.

Notice The Timing On This WAR Action !

The only legal authority that can stop this madness, the U.S. Congress and Senate, have just started their summer extended vacations.

I never ever thought I'd say this, but I'm ashamed to be an American !

I'm sure

the Ziocon, Rand, supports this, because the fear will soon be vacillated by the hasbara, that ISIS will soon become a threat to his religous idol, Israel. Sorry, but his support of the Zionist machine of the Rothschilds, that has been well revelated by many prominent American-firsters as the cause of our imperialist genocidal wars, which has lead to unsurmountable debt, disqualifies him from the Liberty vote. I don't believe he is 'playing politics', but he has been brainwashed by the Judas evangelical ministry, that if he doesn't support Israel, he will not be graced by God. Most of you don't understand this, because you were never a Zionist, but I know exactly how the 'Luciferian allure' consumes you and killing for Israel becomes the norm.

Nice to "see" you Linda,

thanks for the great post

Heard some statistics last night:

1.7 trillion thus far spent on Iraq since the invasion/occupation.
$350,000 spent per every soldier sent.
$490 billion owed to combat veterans.

The last number is interesting because not many think about the costs AFTER the military actions but they are very real and very significant.

Now we are returning to spend even more on this failed endeavor - add to that the costs for the current illegal immigration invasion - talk about bankrupting a country. Those responsible should write a "how-to" book for dummies.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Easy - We default on veterans

We have a shameful tradition as a country of defaulting on our post-service obligations to veterans. So no need to be concerned with the costs. We will just back-pedal.

They have committed to the largest embassy in the world with thousands of Americans living in the city. Are they to abandon them like they did in Benghazi?

Unfortunately this was bound to happen when they left a residual force there.

No one is ever leaving this hell hole till our economy officially collapses.

If Iraq

and Saudi Arabia and Jordan and Turkey are so upset about what is taking place in Iraq...and they should be, thanks to The Cheney Regime and his Zionist friends, maybe the aforementioned countries should take care of the problem! We have sold them advanced fighter aircraft and other such toys, they need to man up and use them!

Quite ironic, the Jews are gone and Christians being driven out - now we must act to 'save' them.
