Obama Authorizes 'Targeted' Airstrikes in Iraq
[tlm724] Obama said he had approved "targeted strikes against [ISIS] convoys should they approach the city."
adding that he had also authorized targeted airstrikes to help break ISIS' siege trapping about 40,000 Christians and members of a religious sect called the Yazidi on Mount Sinjar near Mosul. "We can act responsibly to prevent an act of genocide."
[tlm724] Please pray for our troops to be safe and successful !!
[tlm724] I will tell you all what I told bubbies, once the gate was opened for airstrikes there is no going back. This will be a swift and targeted campaign. We do NOT need boots on the ground for success ! Iraq MUST appear the victor in this so that these terrorist cells won't come back once the US is no longer present.
[BondLady] I agree timmy, the Iraqi and Kurdish Armies will be the boots the on ground and we will supply the air support to make the difference in this battle for Iraq.
Organization "Daash" terrorist announce the formation of "the first government in Iraq and the Levant" after the announcement of the succession Baghdadi
[BondLady] so is any 1 else surprised ISIS formed there own gov today? and set their ministers
[BondLady] almost like there slapping the GOI about how long it actually could take to form a gov of all
[BondLady] and they showed them hey we can do this in 1 day
[RCS1947] yes...clearly they are being supported in doing so
[BondLady] remember who brought them in in the 1st place to bring down the current Maliki gov
[BondLady] who initiated all that with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Quater
[BondLady] they were allowed to grow and fester with out being shackled and squashed
[raindrop1] our old friend Allawai!!
[BondLady] now their huge and will take more to do what needs to be done
[BondLady] what 1st started out as a protest for Malikis last term has turned into a full scale blood bath to rid him of his 3rd term
[BondLady] a real man and lover of his people would have stepped aside if he wasn't so full of hatred for what was done to him on his 2nd term now he clings again to power for 3 reasons greed, power and paybacks
[BondLady] all wrong reasons for sure
Central Bank: coin will be put ten thousand dinars Bhltha the end of August the new current
[Shredd] This is more than likely referring to notes currently in circulation which would confirm my opinion that, due to the horrible security situation and humanitarian crisis going on, the CBI is going to refrain from trying to add value to the dinar.
Iraq is once again in war. You can deny it all you want which would be foolish but they are in war. You can think ISIS/ISIL is small, powerless and ineffective but that is just not true. They are gaining more and more control, are deadly and are sweeping the country.
The government needs to be fully seated and they need to aggressively work with their allies to develop a coordinated resistance to ISIS. This will take time.
