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:

  • OBAMA SAYS "I DON'T RULE OUT ANYTHING" WHEN IT COMES TO HELPING IRAQ DEAL WITH INSURGENTS
  • OBAMA SAYS US HAS AN INTEREST IN MAKING SURE JIHADISTS DON'T GAIN A FOOTHOLD IN IRAQ
  • OBAMA SAYS THERE WILL BE SHORT-TERM IMMEDIATE ACTIONS THAT NEED TO BE DONE MILITARILY IN IRAQ, US OFFICIALS LOOKING AT ALL OPTIONS

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:

  • OBAMA SAYS IRAQ `CLEARLY IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION'
  • OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SAID NOT CONSIDERING GROUND TROOPS IN IRAQ
  • OBAMA SAYS US IS PREPARED TO TAKE MILITARY ACTION WHEN ITS NATIONAL SECURITY INTERESTS ARE THREATENED

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:

  • 'FRANCE'S FABIUS SAYS INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY MUST DEAL WITH IRAQ SITUATION URGENTLY
  • FRANCE'S FABIUS SAYS JIHADIST SURGE PUTS TERRITORIAL UNITY OF IRAQ IN DOUBT AND IS MAJOR RISK FOR REGIONAL STABILITY
  • FRANCE'S FABIUS SAYS INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY MUST DEAL WITH IRAQ SITUATION URGENTLY

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.

Wait, so we're going to arm them on the Syrian side of the Iraqi-Syrian border, and bomb them on the Iraqi side? Is this administration really that clueless?

Isn't this similar to how Cleveland Cavaliers fans treated LeBron James?  Loving him when he's wearing Red, Gold, and White and hating him when he changed his the colors he wears?

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.

The Iraqis likely can't believe how lucky they are to have the US military returning to help out.

I see...in 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 (shhhhh...no 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!

All we need now is for Israel to launch it´s long awaited attack on Iran.  Might as well go balls to the wall and release all the pölitical and military tension that has been building for over a decade now.  That should ruffle up enough black swans to get the Great Reset up and running.

Maybe the objective is to turn the Middle East into one big graveyard and all the survivors emigrate to Europe and the United States.  Why?  To bolster economic growth.  The fact that they will bring their culture of death with them never even enters into the "equation".
