Help us to bomb the
jihadis, US will urge Britain:
America is ´poised´ to ask Cameron
to support air strikes in northern Iraq

Daily Mail [UK], by David Williams, Jason Groves

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/28/2014 6:48:02 AM

America is poised to ask Britain to support air strikes against jihadi positions in northern Iraq, it was reported last night. The White House believes the UK and Australia would be willing to join in such an air campaign, according to the New York Times. And it claimed officials are on the point of asking the Prime Minister--as well as leaders of a string of other countries including Qatar, Jordan, Turkey and Australia--about it. However, Downing Street sources said yesterday no request from the Obama administration had yet been made, and that UK involvement in air strikes would need ‘a

Obama, having spent the last 6 years developing close personal relationships with America´s allies, should have no trouble securing political cover for what is essentially a re-entry into hostilities which were caused in a large part by America´s hasty and ill conceived retreat.

Right?

Should have thought about something like this when sending back the Churchill bust, giving QE the wrong kind of tapes, ditching the Thatcher funeral, chewing gum at Normandy, etc., etc., etc.

Note the wording: "Help us"? How about going ahead and bombing the snot out of ISIS right now and not waiting?

"...urge Britain". How about "ask Britain"? You´re not very well-liked right now, Dude. You can´t afford to "urge", you need to ask politely, and just maybe Britian will forget your absolutely abominable behavior for the last six years plus.

"poised"? Obama is always "poised" or "considering" or "mulling". How about not waiting for a strategy to blame someone else if it goes south? How about "deciding" right now, Dude? How about manning up?

Geez, what a wump.

Obama´s chickens are coming home to roost and they are bringing other chickens with them. This pothead will pay the price for the rest of his life for his stupid, idealistic, naive, muslim view of the world and for riding roughshod over the will of the American people.

An enemy has never been defeated solely by bombing. It would merely be an inconvenience.

In the first place, who would trust this fickle Golfer? He has demonstrated several negative attributes on the global stage of diplomatic relations. His Secretary of State has shown himself to be absolutely incapable of being trusted with secrets or handling himself with sensitive negotiation matters. Øbama will be exceptionally slow to make any decisions, especially the tough ones. He will not be the "go-to" guy, he will delegate responsibility to lackey who he will not give power to deal with crisis. My Goodness! What kind of fools does he actually believe the so-called "Allies" are?

1. Shouldn´t Obama be asking Congress for authorization to go to war with ISIS? Asking allies follows, not replaces the Constitutionally required approval of Congress. Obama said as much in 2008.

2. Since Obama is the "smartest president ever, almost godlike", shouldn´t he be explaining to us what his objectives are with this war, how much it will cost, how long it will last and how we will measure its success/failure? And, as he repeatedly attacked Bush, how he intends to pay for it?? Will Obama reverse layoffs of captains and majors? Will he stop slashing the size of our Army and Navy? Questions without answers.

3. Due to its massive social spending, the UK´s military has been slashed, so it struggles to have even a ceremonial flyover or parade. Will not be of much help in Iraq and Syria. Which countries will contribute more than a salute as we send our young people out to fight the head choppers?

But we are allies of the rebels and send aid and armaments to overthrow Assad. Jihadis are not Regular Army (enlistment,uniforms) but could be any nationality, any social class, mingling easily in any group of people. How do you bomb them, Pres O? Send in my Flying Monkeys (drones) and bomb poor people-ruin their food supply, water, hospitals.

Jill Biden has praised the wounded soldiers of the Invictus Games as she helped Prince Harry draw a close to the week-long tournament. Dr Biden, wife of vice-president Joe Biden, said: ´These games really show the spirit of the military and how they preserve and their resilience.´ Prince Harry added to her comments in a rousing speech, crowning the athletes ´the best of human spirit´ before a star-studded concert for 25,000.

There is something very wrong with our politics. Whatever the outcome in Scotland, whatever the result of the by-election in Clacton--this is serious. A certain amount of disaffection is inevitable in a democratic country. The people who do not get what they voted for--or what they feel they deserve, whichever way they voted--will believe that the system has denied them what is rightfully theirs, and that they have somehow been cheated. But this has now gone way, way beyond the kind of anger and disappointment that is inevitable in a system where the will of the majority always dominates. If

The murder of David Haines was an "act of pure evil", David Cameron has said after the release of a video purporting to show the UK hostage´s beheading. The PM vowed to do "everything in our power to hunt down" the killers of the 44-year-old aid worker, from Perth, who was kidnapped last year in Syria. Islamic State militants have already beheaded two Americans, saying it was in response to US air strikes in Iraq. The latest video also includes a threat to kill a second British hostage. Mr Cameron said the murder of an innocent aid worker was "despicable

San Francisco & Washington - Islamic State´s Twitter users, which have trumpeted the group´s violent acts and worldview on the social media service, have gone abruptly quiet in past days. Several accounts affiliated with the militant group appear to have gone dormant, according to US government sources, raising questions about whether the government has pressured Twitter to clamp down more aggressively or whether the group has moved to other social media channels. When contacted, several US officials said on condition of anonymity they were unaware of attempts to quash those Twitter accounts. The sudden silence also came days after reports about Islamic State-linked accounts threatening

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday it would be inappropriate for Iran to attend an upcoming meeting in Paris on how to defeat the Islamic State group, The Associated Press (AP) reported. Speaking to reporters in the Turkish capital, Kerry said he has not been formally asked about whether Iran should participate in the meeting of diplomats set for Monday. However, he added, Iran should not be there, given its support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in his three-year war against rebels that are trying to oust him from power.

Flagship German Offshore Wind Farm

Germany’s flagship Bard 1 offshore wind farm has been described as “a faulty total system” as technical problems continue to plague the project, casting major doubts on the feasibility of large scale offshore projects. The wind farm was officially turned on in August last year but was shut down again almost immediately due to technical difficulties that have still not been resolved--and now lawyers are getting involved. Built at a cost of hundreds of millions and costing between €1 and €2 million a day to service, the project is estimated to have cost €340 million in lost power generation over

Dozens of firefighters were last night battling an ‘explosive’ blaze at a new £15million laboratory at Nottingham University. Students were warned to stay indoors and close all windows and doors to avoid flying debris as the fire tore through the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory--which was due to open next month. A university spokesman insisted an open day would take place as planned today, despite the huge blaze which lit up the sky for miles around, sending plumes of smoke could be seen across the city high into the sky. Onlookers reported hearing several explosions as 60 firefighters fought to bring the

Scottish soldiers living temporarily abroad, either in barracks in the UK or at British bases abroad, have expressed "fury" at being denied the vote in next week´s referendum over the future of a country they hope to return to after their service. Thousands of Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen native to Scotland live and work outside of the country, following a military tradition of Scots serving which goes back many hundreds of years. Due to electoral rules, those without an address in Scotland itself cannot vote, meaning those Scots temporarily residing in England, or Cyprus, or Germany will be denied their

Hamas appeared to admit using human shields to fire rockets into Israel for the first time today, but refused to accept responsibility for the slaughter of hundreds of innocent Palestinians killed in retaliatory airstrikes. In a veiled confession that comes two weeks after the end of the Gaza war, a senior Hamas official said the group´s fighters had no choice but to use residential areas from which to launch missiles into their neighbour´s territory. But while Ghazi Hamad claimed they took safeguards to keep people away from the violence, he admitted ´mistakes were made´, blaming Israel´s heavy-handed response for the

Iraqi forces retook a key strategic town from Islamic State militants today in a victory that has been hailed as a possible turning point in the fight against jihadis overrunning the country. Barwanah, in Iraq´s Anbar province, has been gripped by vicious fighting for months since IS fighters overran the region last December. But yesterday, after American warplanes carried out strikes in the area, Iraqi troops finally broke through IS defences as part of a major operation to wrest back the province from the clutches of the extremist horde. The news came as key Arab allies vowed to ´destroy´ the Islamic State ´wherever

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic.

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Washington - Were it any other US president in recent memory, delivering a rousing White House address promising to "vanquish" the bloodthirsty militants of the Islamic State from the face of the earth would be dismissed as the "easy part". Recall Joe Biden, the vice president with half an eye on a run for the top job in 2016, promising to follow Isil "to the gates of hell" after the beheading of a second US journalist, and you get the picture of just how easy it can be.
