Obama Lied: US Sending 300 Additional Troops Into Iraq, Including Detachment Of Helicopters And Drone Aircraft

Tyler Durden's picture


The lukewarm war waged by the Nobel peace prize winner is getting warmer by the day. Just out from Reuters:


From Bloomberg:

President Barack Obama says he's sending about 200 more U.S. troops to Iraq to protect Americans and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.


The announcement will bring to nearly 800 the total number of U.S. forces in and around Iraq to train local forces, secure the embassy and protect American interests.


Obama notified House and Senate leaders in a letter on Monday. Obama says the additions include security forces, rotary-wing aircraft, and support for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.


Obama has ruled out sending combat troops back into Iraq. But he says the additional troops will be equipped for combat. He says their purpose is to protect U.S. citizens and property if needed.


Obama says the troops will stay in Iraq until security improves so that the reinforcements are no longer needed.

Note that "this time" it is not just "military advisors" but outright troops: according to the Pentagon, the deployment is “separate and apart” from military advisers deployed to Iraq.  This force is deploying for the purpose of protecting U.S. citizens and property, if necessary, and is equipped for combat. This force will remain in Iraq until the security situation becomes such that it is no longer needed,” Obama says in letter to Congress.

Here is the full Pentagon statement:

Statement from Pentagon Press Secretary, Rear Admiral John Kirby on Additional Security Forces to Iraq

At the direction of the president, the U.S. military augmented its security assistance by up to approximately 200 personnel to reinforce security at the U.S. embassy, its support facilities, and Baghdad International Airport. The president authorized this augmentation as a prudent measure to protect U.S. citizens and property.


These additional personnel arrived in Iraq Sunday and today from locations within the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility. Capabilities provided include a detachment of helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, which will bolster airfield and travel route security. Similar to the U.S. security personnel who arrived in Baghdad earlier this month to provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, they will integrate with existing U.S. embassy security teams.


The presence of these additional forces will help enable the embassy to continue its critical diplomatic mission and work with Iraq on challenges they are facing as they confront Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).


In addition, the approximately 100 personnel already prepositioned in the Central Command region -- previously announced by the Defense Department in mid-June -- will also move forward to Baghdad to provide security and logistics support.


These forces are separate and apart from the up to 300 personnel the president authorized to establish two joint operations centers and conduct an assessment of how the U.S. can provide additional support to Iraq's security forces as they confront the grave threat posed by ISIL.

So much for Obama's historic withdrawal of US armed forces from Iraq. Also so much for Obama's latest lie that the US won't be sending US troops to Iraq:

Elsewhere, that other civil war that was put on "hold" has now officially resumed following a statement by Ukraine' president Poroshenko has called an end to the ceasfire and has once again declared martial law in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions.From his just released announcement:

June 30 evening, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. After discussing the situation, I, as Commander-in-Chief, has decided not to pursue a unilateral cease-fire regime. 


Protection of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, safety and life of civilians requires not only defensive but also offensive operations against terrorist militantsArmed Forces, National Guard, the State Border Guard Service, Security Service received appropriate instructions.


We will attack and liberate our land. Non-renewal of the ceasefire - is our response to terrorists, rebels, looters. To all those who are making fun of civilians. Who paralyzing the work of regional economy. Who plucks the payment of salaries, pensions, stipends. Who undermines and destroys railroad plumbing. Who has deprived people of normal, peaceful life.

Look for the US to be sending "military experts" in that region shortly as well.

Things Obama told the truth about:

"Under my plan, your electricy rates will necessarily skyrocket."

"I intend to fundamentally transform America."

"I think when you spread the wealth around it helps everybody."

"According to my Muslim faith..." 

"“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times …  That’s not going to happen."

“…I inhaled frequently. That was the point.” 

"I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."

Then perhaps they shouldn't have given ISIS a collection of 155mm howitzers, which (unlike the mortars they use) can hit the Green Zone from halfway to Fallujah. If ISIS advances a few kilometers and figures out how to properly deploy and use those guns while coordinating with spotters in downtown Baghdad- shit gets interesting real quick.

What is the 'critical diplomatic mission?

Is acknowledgement of ISIL a de-facto recognition of it by the Obama Administration to some extent?  Is Obama lending legitimacy to this group by addressing the necessity to deploy troops to confront it and//or protect 'Amercian interests' from it?

Frankly, this means 3 things.

2) The Lukoil contracts in the Basra area already configured Russia's influence.

3) The Russian weapons buy further cements Russia's influence and moves the US out, after all that sacrifice.


When Russia solidifies it, there is no way they will let oil production grow there.  They will raise the price until the US agrees to amend its Constitution providing the Kremlin veto power over all US domestic law.

31 years ago, we had a few hundred Marines defending the embassy in Lebanon, and we should all remember how that turned out.

I guess the good news is: we'll get to see for sure if that billion dollar embassy in Baghdad was a good investment.  If we manage to defend the airport, it will have been money well-spent, right?

Main Stream Media:  "These are military advisors, so shut up bitchez.  Anyone who calls Obama a liar is a racist.  Now excuse us, we need to adjust our knee pads in preparation for the next press conference.  By the way, this is all Bush's fault."

And that's what always makes it possible!

From the movie Caligula -

The Pretorian General Chaerea:   "He's mad he doesn't know what he's doing"...

The elder Statesman:  "he knows what he's doing"!...

Sure wish we had a military that would have the "balls" to spill his guts to the entrance of the WH just like that General did in the movie and for that matter every one of them all the way back to 1945!!!

One of the problems with dealing with radical islamist jihadis is that they were "stateless" guerilla fighters.


But, now they have declared an islamic state-so now we have a definite place to carpet bomb these barbarians back into the 7th century that they so love.

I bet dollars to doughnuts that these advisors and drones will be used to report on Iraqi positions, relay the intel to the absurd ISIS cobra commander commandos, and try to sink Maliki's government.

Who knows what the story is.  Perhaps Maliki is blocking a pipeline to somewhere, perhaps the powers that be just need a little war to distract other countries.  Or perhaps this is like that Star Trek episode in which the three leaders are actually just brains, so corrupt and self-absorbed that they need warfare to feel excited about something.

What is clear is that the US government sold out the Iraqi installed government, is supporting the so-called ISIS bloc, and could have taken down this low-grade Sunni band of terrorists within hours.  Desert + column of technicals = A10 shooting gallery.

Remember in Space Balls when Dark Helmet ordered 'Ludicrous Speed'?  Well, we are at ludicrous speed in terms of the insane contrived wars.

He wouldn't let Obama keep his toy soldiers in Iraq. They never learn. It's pretty simple. Don't buck the US, fall in line, do as you're told and no one gets a hanging video on Youtube.

Has anyone noticed CONgress utterly abdicating it's duties and abdicating the throne to the Imperial Branch?

That's why they're at 7% approval, among so many other reasons.

The Imperial Branch is completely out of check and the pervasive lawlessness is plain to see.

As soon as Obama declared the US would be sending "advisors" to Iraq, a new war was guaranteed.

But the problem is, we can't afford it, and if ISIS goes into Saudi Arabia, which is the backbone of the petrodollar, we will be screwed as well.

This entire situation is a damned if you do, damned it you don't type deal.

Got Gold?

Obama wanted to leave troops in Iraq. Maliki refused. Then suddenly ISIS (armed and backed by the US in Syria against Assad) is in Iraq and causing us to send back those very same troops. Eh, coincidental. We'll be up to 10K before you know it.

Drowning swimmers.  You have to go through fierce rough water situations with drowning swimmers to fully appreciate the panic and desperation of a drowning swimmer.  I have been in many.  Everytime, as clear as I tell this story, the same thought came to my mind:  Glad I've been here before.  

The politicians and bankers responsible for orchestrating the global mayhem of war underway on this planet and crashing economies are drowning swimmers caught in an "Economic" fierce rough water situation.  They are behaving very predictablly like drowning swimmers;  panic and desperation grabbing at anyone and anything in their desperation.

Days of focused and coordinated thought are long gone for these bankers and politicians.  Their actions are purely reactionary responses to panic and desperation as they realize they are in the same "Economic" fierce rough water situation with all those they laid prey upon and tossed into the fierce rough water situation in the first place.

There is no getting out.  In fierce rough water situations, if you maintain discipline and resolve, you will wash out the other side wherever that is and maybe alive.  

Sending troops, drones, naval vessels all escalate terrible situations and people die.  More and more will die as the desperate panic of these bankers and politicians seizes them and they become ever more paniced and desperate.  None of these decision makers are thinking;  they are reacting like drowning swimmers; desperate, panicked, clutching at anything and anyone they can get their hands onto.

ZeroHedge and other alternative sites provide abundant advice from clear minded individuals that remain calm and tender good advice to survive this "Economic" fierce rough water situation.  As bankers and politicians pour more death and destruction onto an escalating situation, it is clear they are reacting in panic and desperation just like drowning swimmers.

There is no getting out.  If you survive this it will be because you maintained discipline and resolve.  As the intensity of this "Economic" fierce rough water situation increases, expect to witness and experience increasing panic and desperation from bankers, politicians, and millions more people.  There is no getting out.  Don't panic, maintain discipline and resolve, and you might survive.

I didn't know that drones can tell the difference between shi'ite and sunni. I expect the future to prove that they really can't make a difference.

This is (sadly) hilarious. He is supporting BOTH sides!

There is no way this motherfucker puppet should be where he is.

He's already announced a Dictatorship, and nobody challenges him.

There is proof right there this government is doomed, this country is Finished.
