Obama Responds To Iraq Request For "Kinetic Support", Says Ready To Take Military Action

Tyler Durden's picture


As we reported yesterday, Iraq, realizing it has neither the capacity nor the willingness to engage Al Qaeda's ISIS "spin off" did what every other oil-rich regime in such a situation does: asked Obama for "kinetic support." Moments ago Obama gave his response:


And here is why, as we predicted yesterday when faced with not only but two brand new scandals, the VA farce and the Berghdal "extraction" fiasco, the most likely outcome is war:


So the US is about to unleash hell against the same Al Qaeda extremists it was arming across the border in Syria? Score one more for US foreign policy. Meanwhile, the one person who benefits the most from rising crude prices, that would be Putin for those who still don't get it, is laughing all the way to the bank.

Update: good news - the US won't be fighting Iraq's war alone. Here comes.... France:


Funny how France is so generous when pledging the aid of the international community and not, for example, that of France.

I've said this before, but Obama is teeing everything up for Hitlery, the magnificent thundercunt. She will finish this country off with nary a peep from many who will be afraid of appearing "sexist."

She will be lauded as the new Iron Lady — the anchor which pulls the US into the depths of a sea of shit.

The ability of Obama to consistenly make the wrong call is Stolper-eque and Gartner-esque. Once can only conclude that Obama works for Putin. I bet he takes a top slot with Gazprom when he bails out of the White House.

Give weapons and cash to Al Qaeda in Syria now AQ in Iraq are active and BO says need to step in to 'save' Iraq.

For the second time.  First time, destroyed all the infrastructure, fired the army and police, created chaos.

I Syria they're called "freedom fighters" and obama sucks their dicks while they launch nerve gas on people, chop everyone's fucking heads off, and video themselves EATING the organs out of the victims.  Those are obama's and Kerry's and McCain's and all the rest of our treasonous government's little buddies over there in Syria.

But the same scumbags in Iraq are all of a sudden some kind of enemies, huh?  And how is this asshole (obama) going to have it both ways at this point now that he's become allies with the enemy? 

If he bombs Al Quaida in Iraq even his camel fucking buddies in Syria are going to turn against him.  And that will make Syria's president Assad look even better to the rest of the world since it was Putin who came to his defense against obama in the beginning of all this bullshit.

What's your next move, el presidente checker player?  You fucking treasonous bitch.  Same to the rest of our government...all a bunch of sell out, treasonous little bitches.  Barely even a handful of good guys in all of the Disctrict of Criminals. 

And now we have to send troops back into Iraq???  Bring them all home and let the Middle East deal with itself!  The biggest enemies to America is America's very own criminal fucking government!  The troops need to be deployed in D.C.!

Arrest obama and Biden for treason, sedition, aiding and abetting as well as providing aid and comfort to terrorists across the globe as well as illegal aliens insurgents on our souther border!

Arrest them and try them for treason, high crimes and misdemeanors.  Then swear John "Crybaby little bitch" Boehner in as president with a fucking mandate that he obey the law and the Constitution and deploy the National Guard on the borders to stop the insurgency and send all the illegals back to wherever they came from.  Pull all troops out of the Middle East and quit fucking around with trying to overthrow foreign governments who don't want to use the fucked up U.S. dollar. 

And if Boehner doesn't obey, then off to fucking jail his ass goes too, and we'll keep throwing the traitors in jail until we get someone who will do what's right and lead by honest, truthful, law abiding example and not be a sell-out to special interests, bankster puppet masters, the NWO globalists and U.N. and all the corrupt, fascist, statist corporations who have bought their way into ruling our government with puppet scumbag traitors.

Easy enough solution in my opinion.

let them figure it out on their own.  They've got a hard-core military and maybe the best or second best air force int the world.  And they've got nukes ( one is supposed to know that though) ;-)

We don't need to nor can we continue to intervene in their disputes.  I don't see Israel helping the United States in any way with our own massive refugee issue on our border.  We've got our own "Palestine" to deal with right here in our back yard. 

I've got nothing against Israel.  I wish they would kick some ass on their own though and that we would stay out of it.  Nothing else has worked all these decades, so let's try just staying out of all this shit and see how that works out.  It almost can't get much worse right now in this fucked up world due to the shit our government and the M.I.C. have been doing for so long.  So why not just quit and back off and take care of our own problems.  We've got enough of them, that's for sure!

McMolotov, I appreciate your take on this. I share your thoughts on Hillary Cliton. She is an Israeli puppet, so much so she made sure to marry her duaghter off into the tribe. But apart from that, she is a puppet of AIPAC. Her first concern in running for president is to become Israel's President. War is a sure bet when she sits in the White House. Her plans are to eliminate Iran as a viable nation, most likley by a bombing campaign with Israel to destroy the nation and then to st lose pro US terrorists who are being armed, trained and funded by the CIA. This is ongoing. She does Israeli's dirty work. Israel want Iraq as a destoryed Mad Max state, Israeli wants Iran to be as bad or worse than Iraq. Notice that the Obama thug has already, on orders from Israel, destroyed Libya, and is trying to finish off Syria. Look at the USA hit list. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran. All nations must be destroyed to maintain Israel as the lone Middle East Super Power. Egypt is taken care of, as the US and Israel have their military dictator in power and a well funded army to kill opposition.

Ms. Cliton is also hell bent on giving the neo-cons their dream war. Via a proxy war in Ukraine, they hope to drag Russia into war. This is the main goal of all of this. Destroy Ukraine, this is already in motion, then move the destruction to Russia.

A Cliton president means war, lots of war, trillions in military spending and a total lock down on all American freedoms, as the cop/spy state moves into every corner of our lives.

Clinton bitch is the Anti Christ!

ahh yes, McMolotov, it would certainly play to the ongoing script'd reality show that is the amrkn-nationTM  to install their very own "Iron Lady" as the ship sinks - particularly following on from the "gay black man" currently en-flaming the political "sides". . .

providing the creative memes like "cliton" and "thundercunt" and "hitlary" etc., sure to sear the man-minds with the belief that if only the blacks and lesbos hadn't been voted in (lol, anyone still believing that "votes" count), then this whole mess would have been averted!!

thus pre-serving the role of a uniformed tough guy (military), ready to step in and take over the shit show those "outsiders" created.

Easy question! First, the MIC builds trillions in equipment. Declares victory. Then sells equipment to our local law enforcement. Then re-declares war. MIC must build new equipment. In 8 years our local police department will have Stealth Bombers!!

Makes total $ense.

anyone paying close attention realises the USINC never intended on "leaving" but instead planted their flag & castle for the long haul,

At 440,000 square meters, it is the largest and most expensive embassy in the world and is nearly as large as Vatican City.[1] It employs 15,000 people and cost $750 million to build. The Embassy opened in January 2009 following a series of construction delays. It replaced the previous embassy, which opened July 1, 2004 in Baghdad's Green Zone in a former Palace of Saddam Hussein

of course, with so many military toys and volunteers to play with them, this is the New World dis-Order'd, acknowledged.

Ha! I remember years ago, waaaay back when all this shit in Iraq first started, I used to post over on the Breitbart "big" sites when they were just getting started. I would repeatedly call that embassy a castle and get assailed from every angle by angry Bush supporters. Thanks for the memories.

That castle truly is physical proof of the United States' aspiration to be an empire.

indeed, particularly when one adds in the Haiti castle. . .

It's no surprise that, coming in at number one, the most expensive new embassy compound would be NEC-Bagdad.

Since the bold agenda of the New America is to wage a perpetual war in the Middle East (some may wish to differ with that analysis), dumping the most tax dollars securing the in-securable NEC-Bagdad in IRAQ is pretty much a no-brainer.

The number two position goes to the largest English-speaking country in the world — China. It makes perfect sense that the USG would put an ambitious project in Beijing. Pretending that you're going to be the power in Beijing that will look after our ultimate security requires a big expensive embassy, in order to maintain what is exactly that — a pretense. Oh, and by the way…

(Speaking of embassies in Belgrade, does anyone remember who bombed the Chinese Embassy on May 7, 1999? Over a billion Chinese do…)

Number three spot goes to Berlin. Given that it maintains the fifth largest GDP at $2.585 trillion (US) — and that Germany is ten times as large as Haiti — it's not hard to see why NEC Berlin is the third largest project.

So, Haiti will get the number four position, when the USG actually moves the Embassy outside of Port au Prince to the Tabarre suburb.

For sure France doesn't want to play now in this shit, as France didn't want in 1993, and explicitly warned of the risks.

The Bush regime lied and fabricated "evidence" that was used to deceive Congress, the American people, and the United Nations. 

At the time that these absurd claims were being made, only experts knew that they were false but today everyone knows that the claims were lies.

I wonder why everyone has forgotten how much hate FRANCE got for NOT wanting to contribute in the Irak war.

The whole dumbass "LIBERTY FRIES" , the “cheese-eating surrender MONKEYS”  things   all kind of silly jokes still continuing, even in ZH …. Five years of Anti-French slander and vilification was thus thrust by the White House, the administration, members of Congress, governors and by lackeys in the media (like Fox News or Murdoch Press).

May all Americans remember what they did, and how it speaks volumes about how are treated dissent, opinion and opposition.

- BTW, you probably have forgotten that the French participated in 1991 to the 1st coalition against Saddam, when he invaded Koweit. The second largest European contingent was from France, which committed 18,000 troops. At that time, the French helped the US in order to “re-establish the democracy” in Koweit. Unhappily Bush I ordered all troops to stop before Bagdad
