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.

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. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

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.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief
