What's Wrong With These Two Headlines

Tyler Durden's picture


From Friday:

And from moments ago:

Yes, it may be ironic, but is hardly surprising, that while house hunting and playing golf in Palm Springs over the weekend, the president once again "changed his mind"

Moments ago NBC announced that the U.S. has sent (note the past tense) 170 military personnel to Iraq "to shore up security for Americans and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, defense officials said Monday — and a hundred more could be on the way." Surely those would be shoring up even more security and what not.

Accoring to NBC, Obama formally notified Congress of the assignment in a letter under the War Powers Act on Monday, which said "up to approximately 275" personnel were being reassigned, noting specifically that they are "equipped for combat."

Defense officials confirmed Monday that 170 military personnel were already in place, having moved into the country sometime over the weekend. They said Obama pegged the number at 275 to give himself a "little extra headroom" in case he needs to send reinforcements.

Ironically even the largely pro-Obama network pointed out the obvious contraciction: "Obama said last week that "I don't rule anything out" as Iraq has spiraled out of control amid Sunni-Shiite sectarian violence in recent days. At the same time, he insisted that the U.S. wouldn't send ground troops."

Of course, since no spin would make the president into a liar, there was a prepared narrative:

And while the 170 personnel are equipped for combat, the White House said they're in Iraq only to "provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad," and to help the State Department move some embassy staff to U.S. consulates elsewhere in the country.


Security and protection are the same reasons U.S. officials have given for sending several naval ships to the Arabian Gulf, although a senior defense official told NBC News: "If the president orders airstrikes, we have plenty of firepower in the Gulf."

And now, if Iraqi troops need US military support, they have that too. For "embassy support purposes of course."

And a bright blinding flash that vaporizes the entire Middle East if by current global leadership
This shit is gonna get really ugly, fast.

Current behavior only invites more aggressive adventurism, worldwide.
It's a clusterfuck of societal disarray and global reach, like co-joined Yetis kidnapping small animals, women and children for black masses of imperial debauchery and murder.

BTW, is this the same type of security and protection that O and Hill gave to the folks at Benghazi?

I'm surprised more people haven't figured out how to read Zero like a book yet. Just listen to what he says!

He just says the opposite of whatever he is doing, it is as simple as that.

The guy has all the intelligence and tact of a 3rd grader.

If he says "no boots on the ground" it means there will be boots on the ground.

If he says "you can keep your healthcare" it means you will lose your healthcare.

If he says "we don't want to take away your guns" it means they are actively trying to take away your guns.

If he says he wants to "tax the rich"(aka somebody else) it means he's going to tax YOU, the middle class guy struggling to get by.

The troops are probably drone operators.

The true Turing test was when Skynet became self-aware and hijacked the TOTUS' teleprompter.

Expect the software to be now directly downloaded to the Narciss-bot-in-Chief with a beta roll out of extensive drone wars in Iraq with ISIS being a casus belli for drone attacks into Syria (think early 70s Cambodia) towards an eventual refinement of tactics and targeting of insurgents for armed DHS security in the CONUS.

(Not sure if Obama could pass the Turing test on his own....)

There is nothing "wrong" with these conflicting statements.

These affairs are never about military power. High propaganda, economic interests and politics reign supreme. These troops being sent by our rulers are too few to affect a situation of mass strife and sectarian slaughter.

However, they could serve our rulers' interest very well in the end -- if some of them are killed and videos are shown of their bodies being dragged thru the streets and hung up on bridges.

My guess is that small teams of Special Forces will be assigned to work with Iraqi troops, helping to give them some backbone - not so much from fighting but by calling in air strikes and drones.

 You mean by calling in air strikes and drones on any Iraqis who try to flee?

Could it be that the Sunni Iraqi troops are refusing to fight because they think US puppet Maliki is even worse than ISIS?

"Highway of death" deja vu (This time supposedly to give them "backbone")

They don't want to lose the embasy, and they don't want to drone their own embassy building.

It would just look too bad as a headline, and show a complete loss of the war.


This is Iraq 3.0, its going to be like a new war, we ran out of boogiemen , and we had to re-conjure a new one.

Couldn't they do what they did in Benghazi and then blame it on...oh, I don't know, Ted Cruz or better yet, Duck Dynasty.   Then the media can run with it how Duck Dynasty offended the 'sensibilities' of these cave men cum jihdists.   Throw the dynasty guys in jail.    Then the left in this country can say they deserved it because they 'hate' and the right in this country can wring it's hands and hope John Boner 'goes after' Obama.

Like the down arrows....Beck may be a sensationalist and taking advantage of people, or maybe he isn't. 

All I know is he has been right on this, the goals of the administration, soros, the fact that rep and dem are both the problem, the crashing of the economy, teh bankers, Obama's background, Van Jones, Jarrett and on and on and on.   All of which has been repeated and ballyhooed here on ZH as that true state of what's going on.  

I know one thing is for sure, he was right about growing and storing your own food, supplies of fresh water and medical equipment and building a network of friends and family that can rely on each other.

A little overblown.  300 troops is not exactly a war contingent.  They are there for embassy security.  The situation is bad enough, no need to over dramatize this small move.   Now 10,000 troops, then we're talking.

I feel incredibly sorry for these poor bastards. Comitted to a rapidly deteriorating situation with the specter of the 200 contractors abandoned at Balad Airport. Air support denied, according to the story. Looks like the Iraqis picked up the ball this time, but the Air Force stand down is a pretty somber note.

Now we're willing to participate with Iran in this matter? It's not surprising, since we have always been at war with Eurasia, and Eastasia has always been our ally.

What is the difference? Maybe combat? Maybe it means that 'american' troops will not look for engaging the 'american' enemy? 'Americans' with all their military instructions should be able to answer that question.

Once again, it shows how 'americans' cant face reality and perpetually try to avoid discussion on reality.

They need to invent a world, comfortable to their minds, so they deploy their fantasical view and reach the preset conclusion.

Attacking their servants like the negro in the oval bureau under false assumption is a sure way to avoid attacking that servant on the ground of facts.

And once again, as usual with 'americans', it is obvious. Anyone can at once notice that the texts read in one case combat troops and in the other troops.
'Americanism' is all about submission. Submit, submit, submit.

One should remember this is an 'american' fight club that comes with rules (rule of law).

Rule number one: you do not talk about the fight club.

As it is an 'american' fight club, it comes with one untold but imperative rule

Rule number zero: you do not talk about 'americanism'.

When posters are 'american', that rule is automatically followed. So useless to mention it.

It goes without saying.

He said "no combat troops". He is sending "troops". This means he is sending troops with unloaded rifles so they can't enter combat, but can only be killed.
