The new U.S. military mission in Iraq:
What we know now

Washington Post, by Dan Lamonthe

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/8/2014 7:28:41 AM

President Obama said Thursday night that he has authorized two new, major actions by the U.S. military in Iraq: airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State if U.S. interests or personnel are threatened, and humanitarian assistance for thousands of civilians who have fled the Islamist advance in northwest Iraq and are now trapped on a mountain. Even those two specific missions are more complicated than that, however. First, the U.S. humanitarian mission on Mount Sinjar began Thursday with airdrops by military aircraft, but it could require targeted airstrikes in order to “break the siege” at the base of the mountain and

What, no declaration of war? No going to Congress for authorization? Oh, that´s right, I forgot: King Barky I sees all, knows all, controls all from his tiny hovel on Martha´s Vineyard.

"Second, the advance of the Islamic State near Irbil appears to be a line in the sand for the Obama administration." Obama knows that a sandstorm twill soon erase his line.

As to Obama´s threatened use of force to pester ISIS:
1. ISIS will make vicious use of car bombs & assassinations in Irbil and Baghdad to negate Obama´s threat of bombings to halt the ISIS approach to both cities.

2. US air power is only effective with spotters on the ground, which means either our advisors will either be on the front lines or our air strikes will be ineffective,
3. ISIS is now far more heavily armed than most Iraqi army units and the Kurd forces thanks to their seizure of US supplied weapons. Rearming the Iraqi forces will take months, time that they don´t have.
4. Our jet fighters need to be based close to targets ranger than flying hours to/from targets for a 15 minute bombing runt. Where will Obama position those aircraft? Iran? Syria? Iraq? Turkey? Obama gave no details last night, which may mean he plans to do little to save Tje. Iraq he abandoned less than 3 years ago.

It might be nice to have an air wing of A-10 and a couple of ac-130´s close by, along with their light spotter aircraft...without having to fly them over other countries through hostile airspace...and without having IS(IS) in possession of anti aircraft missiles and tracking systems they recently captured....oh well...TEE TIME!

Not that these humanitarian efforts are a bad thing -- they should be done.

But note Obama´s phrasing, which once again allows him off the hook should things go wrong. "....if needed." That means he is making known he is relying on the intel of others, so he won´t take the fall if things go bad.

Even now, he won´t stand up and say "this is my decision as the leader of the free world." He is saying, "I´m doing this if other people tell me it´s needed."

Ever the coward.

This is Barack´s preferred mode of kinda-sorta war: by X-Box remote control. And if it doesn´t work (and it won´t), then it´s the humanitarian aid mission dropping water supplies and autographed pictures of himself. And if that doesn´t work (and it won´t), then it´s the faux sympathy message of condolence for all the dead victims of the slaughter.

The mightiest military in the world (for the moment) has just launched an airstrike against IS artillery positions near Irbil, Iraq.

That "airstrike," we are told, consisted of two F/A-18 airplanes carrying (?) laser-guided 500 pound bombs each, flying about 2000 miles round trip (almost the N-S length of Iraq), part of it over IS-controlled territory, with few or no "Bingo" options.

Have we just redefined "pinprick"? "Ridiculous tactical mission"? "Using our military for political/PR purposes"? I think so.

Here´s one of the things the leftist media will overlook. This was entirely preventable. If we had left a residual force we could have stopped their advance into Iraq at the Syrian border.

Even worse, we now know that Benghazi arms are probably in the hands of ISIL. Of course, they were "freedom fighters" in Syria. In addition, they have captured who knows how many heavy weapons and WMD´s.

The leftist media will never admit that Obama owns this.

Those ISIS maniacs apparently so far have not targeted the small units of American military personnel that Obama recently sent back into Iraq.

Now since Obama has bombed one of their artillery guns being pulled behind a truck, look for ISIS to start deploying human and vehicle suicide bombers against those Americans.

So the Kurds are defending 600 miles of lines with antiquated equipment. Maliki gives them nothing. They ask us for military equipment, not boots on the ground. Obama goes to Martha´s Vineyard and plays golf with rich people and toadies. He has no courage, no shame. Perhaps he thinks President Jarrett will handle it.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
