The United States of America cannot
turn a blind eye´: Obama authorizes
airstrikes in Iraq to protect U.S. officials
and refugees trapped by ISIS rebels

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko*

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/7/2014 11:38:26 PM

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger,´ Obama said in an 8-minute speech delivered from the White House´s State Dining Room But American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, he insisted, and the U.S. won´t

Comments:
*with Associated Press and Reuters.

I may break another tooth over this:

´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger.´

Aaargh!!!

P.S. Does he often give pressers in the State Dining Room?

Øvomit created this mess by his rush to desert Iraq to his terrorist muslim brothers.

Now he´s going to try to look like a statesman for dropping a few bombs on terrorists that he single-handedly gave the thumbs up to do exactly what they are doing.

Anyone check Øvomit´s head for a big "666"?!?!?

So somehow the man was forced to wake up and actually do the job he campaigned for???

I hated that he qualified his statements, excusing himself for not doing anything before, but for the sake of the people trapped at least he is doing something about the mess we created.

The man and his team are without strategy and foresight - they have reduced our military shamelessly, they have got rid of all the good generals and replaced them with them two star pooftas, they have armed the enemy jihadis at our expense and given the finger to our allies. We have no need for these people.

Once the Islamo Dogs turn to the city with the Americans, they will be ordered to a defensive stance and then evacuate, leaving the native populace to the sword. Turkey will do nothing, since they hate Kurds and Zoroastrians. Jordan will fall next.

The Putz-in-Chief could have stopped tens of thousands of murders when ISIS was traveling in convoys through the desert between cities and beheading everyone in their path, but that window of opportunity closed months ago. Now he is going for the political points for "helping" those who have already lost family members through thirst and starvation. What is he going to do when the trapped Americans are threatened by ISIS and he has already declared no boots on the ground? He caused this mass murder by prematurely pulling our troops out of Iraq and the current death toll belongs to him. The very least he can do is drop some water out of a plane.

Too little too late.

BO should have done this MONTHS ago. Now ISIS has taken over most of Iraq, and BO looked the other way.

I´m so disgusted.

What is BO going to do? Tell ISIS what we are doing, when we are doing it, and when we will be done?

Just lobbing bombs at ISIS will not stop them. They are going to come to the USA, mark my words.

I make a connection: illegal arms deals by Clinton in Benghazi, military trainers sent to Syria who are now in Iraq using those arms.
Lets interview the trainers we sent to Syria, were they regular army, or CIA, where are they now?

This is exactly what happens when you send a boy to do a man´s job. Obama is nothing but a two bit community organizer who sees everything through a progressive political lens. He is so utterly arrogant that he believes the world will do as he says. It doesn´t work that way, skippy. The world is a dangerous place and it takes men of integrity, courage and resolve to deal with thugs and barbarians. Ideologues who are too blinded by their own hubris are unqualified to do the job.

Obama creates dangerous chaos and calls it progress. He is a short sighted fool. He allowed ISIS to destroy the gains our military had fought and died to make. Now he is allowing ISIS to butcher anyone in their way. Obama sentenced the people of Iraq to this carnage the moment he made the decision to draw down our troops and that decision was made for pure political reasons. He gave no thought to what would happen to the people of Iraq. The decision was based on what was good for him politically. He used the people of Iraq and then threw them to the wolves. This man is a monster.

No doubt Obama was dragged ´kicking and screaming´ to this decision - to boost him in the polls while he´s vacationing. Don´t think for a minute he announced this because it was the right thing to do. "Doing the right thing" has never been a priority for ´our dear leader´.

My thoughts exactly, OP. Mega dittos to #20.

Retiring Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) was just interviewed on our local radio station here in Virginia. He highlighted several issues about what is going on in Iraq, namely that Christianity is being wiped out in Iraq, the Kurds are not being allowed to sell their own oil by this Administration (which I was not aware of), Aramaic (the language spoken by Jesus and the Chaldean Christians) is being wiped out, and that these "targeted strikes" will not be enough to destroy ISIL. There are Christian relief organizations apparently in the area who are ready to ready to provide food and other necessary items to those who are under threat.

Bravo #17. This is what happens when you play both sides of the fence. Since ISIS was hassling Syria and Assad, favored by Russia, it suddenly was a good idea for us to assist ISIS. Of course we had the obligatory humanitarian allegory to foist on the public since Assad is such a shmuck.

This is also the price others pay for our political gamesmanship. You know Bush woke up one morning and decided to go it alone and invade a tranquil country to blow of steam, steal oil for Cheney´s henchmen.

Had that been true simply pulling out saying we are sorry might seem to be a good idea. The harsh reality of the complexity of the world stage has flocked to our doorstep like an infestation of Jeremiah Wright chickens.

So we found ourselves hesitating until 40,000 people are starving to death on a mountain top and millions of lives are at the mercy of terrorists controlling a single dam.

The vitriol spewed by American leftists matters. We tend to pass it off for what it is, what we know it to be, but lo-fo´s fall for it and the rest of the world doesn´t necessarily get our perverse context. For instance when we say we tortured folks what do you think those who remove body parts for fun think that means?

Fox reported that two Navy jets from the George Bush operating in the Persian Gulf made a raid against an ISIS artillery position. I´m sure that this minimalist action will turn the tide completely in Iraq and render ISIS impotent for all times in the future.

Someone pointed out to Obama that he would be viewed with assisting genocide. That´s why he is doing it. If it was just 40,000 Christians
his response would be no action. The fact that this sect and group of people would be wiped out is the difference.

History looks bad n genocide.

#22 - I heard the same interview this morning. Rep Wolf has been very vocal about this for a long time. Rep Wolf also said that the West has to speak up as ISIS/ISIL IS a threat to the West. Hundreds if not more of their fighters have American or European passports.

How long did the US stay in japan after WWII? Gen MacArthur just didn´t leave the new government to figure things out on thier own - he actively influenced them and their leadership, including the Emperor. Obama just bailed out of Iraq because the man-boy hates work, challenges and anything that Goerge Bush touched.

As an Ohio Congressman (and Iraq veteran) on Fox News this morning said, how dare Obama talk about the American people being war weary when the men and women who fought that war are not weary but eager to see it completed to victory.

And if I hear one more Fox news bimbo (Shannon Bream) say that it´s hard being President, making tough decisions when asking some guest what Obama might do - I´m going to scream.

This entire event could have been avoided if Obama hadn´t been so quick to pull out of Iraq and make little or no effort to come to an agreement with al Maliki about residual forces remaining there. Obama blamed it all on him when we know it could have been done if there was a desire to do so. Now we have an unmitigated disaster.

In addition, Obama´s military advisers warned him many months ago of the extreme danger of ISIS, and as always he ignored them. It would have been much easier early on to completely obliterate those murderous barbarians when they first began their death marches. Obama, the too cool for school guy and a stubborn radical ideologue got us into this. Sadly for us and the rest of the world, this is the danger of electing a Democrat. This is what they do and how they behave. Obama just happens to be the worst one we have ever had.

He hates the US, hates doing this strike, but he knows the Christians of the US are watching him closely. Democrats, some of them are Christians, so he must act, screaming, kicking and with a mush mouth delivery of why. Sickening.

Barry looked so shifty announcing
his humanitarian war in Iraq.
He could not look into the camera-his eyes darted left and then darted right and never once did he look the American people in the eye.
He kept puffing out his cheeks and he was clearly uncomfortable playing the role of Commander in Chief.
The common them from the Obama media was how
" everyone " was caught by surprise
by the latest ISIS move.
C´mon.
Everything catches Barry by surprise because he´s either on the golf course with Reggie Love or he´s sleeping.
This is just a tune up for Afghanistan.

Would be nice if this country had a coherent short term and long term strategy in the war with Islam. Islam is at war worldwide, and especially with us.

Have to doubt any kind of strategy will come from Obama. First, he is sympathetic towards the Muslims, and then he does a 180 and attacks them.

Word gets out that Muslims are exterminating Christians around the world. Lots of people in both parties really dislike this. Are Obama´s actions CYA? Does Obama think this gets the democrats more votes? Does Obama even have a clue?

It is absolutely critical that the US support its allies around the world. We cannot fight Islam alone. Doubt the war can be won militarily or economically though both are important. People worldwide need to realize what Islam is like which means governments need to speak out against it and show what Islam is doing. Islam supports robbery, slavery, and murder.

He has "turned a blind eye" for years.

He has turned a blind eye as churches have been blown to smithereens, while mane and women were butchered, beheaded, executed, while mosques of differing sects, destroyed.

And all this time, every dang day, he has gone about his merry way, dividing and irritating the citizens of our Republic.

Many excellent comments here.

We remember. But how many people reading these article, hearing the news, seeing these comments would know what we are saying, would understand the crises?

We are besieged by ignorance which this regime depends on for its survival.

The look on Obama´s face during this announcement is just so angry, evil. It reminds of his angry look during the Bin Laden kill. This must be excruciating for him, fingernails on a chalk board. He´s just been running out the clock on those unfortunate people, now on a mountain top. ´ gotta love how sensitive Defense Dept was to New York Times saying US had bombed, already.

United Airlines is scrambling to alert the hundreds of passengers who shared twi planes with the first Ebola patient on U.S. soil. [Snip] U.S. officials had previously refused to provide details of his itinerary, claiming none of his fellow passengers were at risk because he was not showing symptoms at that time. Currently, patients are checked for fever - the first sign of a possible infection - before they are allowed to board flights leaving West African nations. However, once travelers gets past examiners in Liberia, Sierra Leon or Guinea, there are few barriers to them moving across the world.

Up to 18 people in America, including five children, may have been exposed to Ebola after coming into direct contact with the first patient to be diagnosed with the deadly disease on US soil. Thomas Eric Duncan, who arrived in Dallas, Texas, from Liberia on Sept 20, was infectious for up to eight days and health officials are already examining a second potential case in someone close to him. They said the children who encountered Mr Duncan and who went to four different schools in Dallas were “priority number one” and would be closely observed for any symptoms over the

Uncharacteristically, I´m almost lost for words--or at least for critical words. David Cameron said pretty much everything I wanted him to say in his belter of a conference speech. [Snip] What this amounted to in effect was a picture of a social morality based on rewards for hard work, personal responsibility, pride in your achievements, and true fairness (which is to say, getting "something for something" rather than something for nothing). And, most important, the idea that permitting people to live in permanent dependency was not just a waste of money, but a waste of life.

US cannot tell how effective
airstrikes against ISIS have
been because of huge gaps
in intelligence, officials claim
Daily Mail [UK], by Darren Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/1/2014 8:41:11 AM     Post Reply
Pentagon officials are finding it difficult determining how effective US airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria are because of ´significant gaps in intelligence´. Senior current and former US officials have told the Associated Press that American aircraft are running under less restrictive rules than those governing drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen. Despite this, they are having difficulties determining the effectiveness of the bombing missions targeting Al-Qaeda and ISIS due the lack of intelligence assets on the ground. These assets identify targets before an airstrike and conduct an after action battle damage assessment.

David Cameron today put two major tax cuts at the heart of his bid for re-election, promising to dramatically raise both the amount workers earn before paying income tax and before being dragged into the higher 40p rate. [Snip] And to huge cheers in the auditorium, he announced the point at which the 40p tax rate is levied will rise from around £42,000 to £50,000--a huge boost for middle class families. Mr Cameron declared ´I love this country´ as he pleaded for another five years in Downing Street to ´finish the job´ of turning the country around.

Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, has become so fat while in office that his ankles have fractured under his own weight, it was reported on Tuesday. The 31-year-old, who has looked increasingly portly since taking power, had to undergo a hospital operation after putting too much strain on his ankles during a gruelling round of official engagements. [Snip] Unlike other members of North Korea´s political elite, for whom a sudden absence from public life often means they have been killed or imprisoned, in Kim Jong-un´s case it is said to be down to Elvis-style weight gain as a result

Netanyahu arrived in the United States Monday

Federal health officials on Tuesday confirmed the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S., a male patient who recently traveled from Liberia to Dallas and a sign of the far-reaching impact of the out-of-control epidemic in West Africa. The unidentified patient was critically ill and has been in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday, officials said. Health authorities have begun tracking down family and friends who may have had close contact with the patient and could be at risk for becoming ill. But officials said there are no other suspected cases in Texas.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus
