Iraq Releases Gun Camera Footage Of Deadly Air Strikes On Al-Qaeda Forces

Tyler Durden's picture


It may not be quite as exciting (yet) as CNN's night vision coverage of the air bombing campaign from Operation Desert Storm, but in an attempt, we assume, to boost morale and to show that the Iraqi army isn't folding like John Boehner at the first sign of Al-Qaeda ISIS troops, moments ago the Iraqi defense ministry, via AP, released the following footage which is said to show "deadly airstrikes on militants in the Salah al-Din and Nineveh provinces" from Wednesday night, shortly after ISIS captures two strategic Iraq cities.


The flipside to the video above, and one which Iraq will never release, is the following clip released earlier today which allegedly shows over 4000 Iraqi soldiers captured by ISIS and being transferred who knows where.

They're being transferred to the newly wealthy ISIS paymaster, where they will be signed up, re-armed, and sent back out to help kick the damned foreigners (us) out of Iraq (again).

4,000 or 40,000 makes no difference.  The point is the same.  These guys are far better than the guys they are fighting and they will win without outside intervention. 

What seems odd to me is that ISIS would move on Iraq when they haven't finished Syria.  The US cannot bomb them in Syria.  In Syria they are also less of an enemy to the US but with success would end up face to face with Israel.  Instead they drive through Iraq opening themselves to attack from the US and Iran.  For what exactly?  It reminds me of Hitler opening a second and third front in the west and south in what has to be one of the biggest self defeating moves of all time.

I just don't get the risk/reward on this one.

I am not much of a French fan myself, but they did courageously and successfully defend Paris in 1914. They even used taxis to get to the front.

Please don't forget the contribution the United States Marine Corps made at the Battle of Belleau Wood in 1918. The area was renamed by the French government to Woods de Brigade Marine in honor of the sacrifice the young Americans made this month 96 years ago. The Marines stopped the Germans and at the time were creditted by the French for saving Paris.

I was talking about the fact that the French have made at least one courageous military stand and also successfully defended Paris in 1914 right at the beginning of WWI.

That was long before the DC US tricked the American people into the racket known as World War I.

"Rock of the Marne." Simply from an academic perspective, that was one Hell of a military feat. I remember reading a German officer's report on the fighting. Paraphrasing, he said the Americans were unlike the British or the French in that they returned a huge volume of fire, excelled in small unit close quarters fighting, and "shot everything without mercy and did not show an inclination to either take prisoners or become prisoners." Reading German government documents, it was clear the Germans surrendered because of the entry of the US into the war. It was simple manpower equation. The German army was shrinking in size. New cohorts of 18 year olds did not nearly match required casualty replacement rates, and 4,000,000 new Americans would simply overwhelm them. The French and British armies were also collapsing in size as well. Many French units, showing good judgement, were still simply refusing to go on the offensive, though the were cohesive on the defense. Europe was spent.

This was not a USMC action, but rather, a 3rd US Infantry Division action.

Belleau Wood was an offensive action, or rather a counter-attack, really, but it was the 3rd ID (army) that was credited with saving Paris during a heroic stand on the Marne. I am not trying to take away any USMC 2nd DIV achievements, but Belleua Wood and the Marne were separate and notable actions of great distinction.

While France was fighting since August 1914, the United States entered in the war only in April 1917 (more than 2 years and 8 months later), not to rescue the French (who by the way were not at all defeated in 1918), but because, President Wilson judged it was the US national interest to do it in response to the declaration by Germany of a total submarine war against US ships.

The United States came significantly in action (1 division) at the battle of Seicheprey in April 1918 (only 7 months before the end of the war) and then at the Battle of Belleau Wood in June 1918.

Therefore the US intervention had not the character of a rescue for the French, but was an appreciated help to accelerate the end of war and victory – and was indeed very desirable, regarding the enormous human cost of the war for France *

* World War I cost France 1,697,800 dead, 4,266,000 wounded (of whom 1.5 million were permanently maimed) and 537,000 made prisoner or missing — exactly 73% of the 8,410,000 men mobilized (for a total population of 40 million). This means that 60% of men between the ages of 18 and 28 died or were permanently maimed. An they DID NOT SURRENDER ...

Even in 1940, French military leadership and strategy was tragically inadequate, but this does not mean that the French did not put up a “real fight”.

In the six week Battle of France, from May 10 to June 22, 1940, the French lost, in military personnel alone, 260,000 wounded and 108,000 killed. A total of 368,000 casualties in six weeks is not something to pass off lightly.

Yes, the Germans gave the French a terrible beating. But it took the combined strength of the United States, Great Britain, Soviet Russia, Canada, etc., to beat the Germans. It’s asking rather a great deal of France to match such strength against hers – with an air inferiority of 1 vs 5. ”

The US never faced mor than 15% of the Wehrmacht – 80% were in the East -  when France had to face alone 100% of Hitler's war machine in 1940.

In fact, the Germans would have walked straight over the British or American armies if any of these places would have been directly adjacent to France.

One of my best friends old high school football bud etc was weapons spc in the navy . Stayed naval reserve and they sent is ass over there in his late 40 to teach those clowns how to shoot. Tough as nails moved from Akron to my rural ky town as a kid. He said they can't hit shit past 100 yards because there eye sight is shit from generations of drinking bad water with some parasite. They sent him because of his age . Had to grow the tactical beard. Because that's what they respect. That trip cost him his marriage. He didn't deserve that.

They can't hit shit over 100 yards because they use AK-47's (or actually AKM's. The AK-47 was a gun disaster and ceased production in 1958 - I have no idea why the West insists on calling the AKM the AK-47. Yes, the AKM was derived from the AK-47, but the AK-47 sucked balls - it was very expensive to manufacture, was inaccurate, and very unreliable). It (the AKM) simply is not a very accurate gun, although it has other fine features, mainly low cost and high reliability even when abused and neglected.

There are apparently youtube videos of kids pelting iraqi forces leaving with rocks in mosul, and again, there is open indications that there was help from the "inside" with Sunni military officers standing down which to me says, this is some sort of let it happen show by someone...


IT is, as I said before, mind bending. The numbers of forces on either side and in general, this just doesn't make sense unless there was some sedition from the army, and an undercurrent of support from the populace.

They failed to break Syria. Maybe 'they' have decided it's time for a Sunni state in Iraq to counter Iran. I suspect those 4000 troops are about to be Srebrenica'd, poor fuckers.

It appears we are finally witnessing the long awaited division of Iraq.


Perhaps not exactly as Joe Biden & NeoCon Friends would have wanted to see it implemented it but at least with the same inevitable result. It seems simply amazing (or was it?) that the NSA, CIA and all the other alphabet soup intelligence agencies missed this one but hey... what do you expect for a measley $80 billion or so per year?

 "The report suggests that the ISIS is not a ragtag amalgam of rabid fanatics, but a highly-motivated and disciplined modern militia with clearly outlined political and territorial objectives. If this is the case, then it is likely that they will not march on Baghdad after all, but will tighten their grip on the predominantly Sunni areas establishing a state within a state. And this is precisely why the Obama administration may choose to stay out of the conflagration altogether, because the goals of the ISIS coincide with a similar US plan to create a “soft partition” that dates back to 2006.

The plan was first proposed by  Leslie Gelb, the former president of the Council on Foreign Relations, and then-senator Joe Biden. According to the New York Times the “so-called soft-partition plan ….calls for dividing Iraq into three semi-autonomous regions…There would be a loose Kurdistan, a loose Shiastan and a loose Sunnistan, all under a big, if weak, Iraq umbrella.”

Again, points well made. Dislodging the kurds from tikrit may well be difficult. The only issue I think we may find is that the virulent ilk of wahhabi filth of the hour, regardless of what is on their black flag will want it all - but smashing countries or dissecting them follows the playbook.

Where was the napalm and the CIA gunships with the gatling guns, making it a slaughter.

like the road to Baghdad in 2001.

5000 lives sacrificed...for this???

Throw em all out. the Crooks, Demicrooks and RINOS

Go on Susan, go on the Channels and lie some more.

We lost 2.3 trillion in Iraq. Then another 9 trillion vaporized off Federal Reserve ledger. Do you remember?

My neighbor near Eglin AFB/Hurlburt Field in Fl Panhandle was the Colonel in charge of the lead AC-130 that strafed the road Northbound outta Kuwait in Gulf War 1. Said after one pass the destruction was epic. They radioed HQ and they told him to order his Gunships to take a second pass. After the second pass down the road he felt ill at the destruction they unleashed. They radioed HQ and were told to take a thrid pass just to be sure. He told HQ to go fuck themselves and ordered his Spectres back to base. When they landed he was met by MPs and immediatly arrested for disregarding a direct order. The next day when CNN showed the footage of the destruction and the world media started to question the operation the boyz at HQ quietly released my neighbor from the brig, gave him an award, and told him thank you for disregarding our orders.

No shit story.

This war will be televised folks. Unlike Vietenam "there is no containment strategy"...which will become quite remarkable as the war approaches close to our "American" homeland."

Do not find yourself staring at these pictures too long for that is a real Army attacking and not a bunch of meely mouth phucks who only know truth when a gun is pointed at their head.

It remains to be seen the ferocity here...but clearly the Clowns in Charge have been "surprised by the speed."

Of "what" exactly would be interesting to know.

"The enemy" perhaps?

The real problem is, we didn't spend enough money on those first two wars in Iraq.

Alright! US made and funded equipment blowing up US made and funded equipment. Ka-ching!

Of course their airmen coming from far behind the front lines in aircraft are still fighting, but with ground forces stripping off their uniforms and running away (ARVN version 2?), well, you can't hold territory from the air.

Who'd a thunk that when you remove a dictator from control of an artificial construct of the British Empire called "Iraq,"one specifically designed for sectarian conflict to make it easier to rule, that the country would eventually try to split back along sectarian lines? Answer: anyone with a freaking brain.

I'm wondering how all those people in the world's largest U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq which cost us 1 billion dollars are feeling right about now.

We don't want another Benghazi on our hands, now do we, mr. president bath house???

War Porn from the Peace Laureate Obama.  Does he feel the need to prove that he is "really better at killing people" than Bush was?

In a war like this, it is not the weaponry that counts but the will of the combatants, the pics of how quickly Iraq's security forces folded and the throwing away of the uniforms tells me it is not going to be them.
