US Airstrikes Caught On Tape; ISIS Retaliates By Capturing Hundreds Of Yazidi Women

Tyler Durden's picture

As the following clip shows, the explosions from two F-18s dropping 500lb bombs were large and Iraq officials stated that 45 ISIS fighters were killed (and 60 injured). While The Islamic State's response was to demand blood for US intervention, it appears they went domestic first. As AP reports, Iraqi official says hundreds of Yazidi women taken captive by Islamic State militants.



Clip showing US Airstrikes...


And the retaliation was fast...

As AP reports,

The spokesman for Iraq's human rights ministry says hundreds of women from the Yazidi religious minority have been taken captive by militants from the Islamic State group.


Kamil Amin says the women are below the age of 35 and some are being held in schools in Iraq's second largest city, Mosul. He said the ministry learned of the captives from their families.


Tens of thousands of Yazidis fled when the Islamic State group earlier this month captured the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar, near the Syrian border. Amin's comments were the first Iraqi government confirmation that some women were being held by the group. The Yazidis practice an ancient religion that the Sunni Muslim radicals consider heretical.

Finally we thought it worth sharing the desperate spin that analysts are putting on this as a bearish signal for oil...

"In essence we find U.S. air strikes more bearish than bullish for oil as the act finally draws a line not to cross for IS and re-enforces both the stability in south Iraq and in Kurdistan," said Oliver Jakob, an analyst at Switzerland-based Petromatrix, in a note to traders.

Good luck with that.

Oh come on! How about the dramatic, blurry five seconds of footage of some kind of smoke plume from :09 to :14? I almost felt like my ass was strapped right inside one of the two F-18s taking out... (wait for it...) a single fucking MORTAR! 

Regardless of how many nobody Kurds are getting slaughtered, the only ones the U.S. will protect are the handful of corrupt, bribed KDP officials in Irbil that can (illegally) sign away Northern Iraqi oil assets to Western oil companies. The rest of the Kurds? Fuck them - airdrop a couple of pallets of water and MREs.

The off-again, on-again Fake ISIS takeover of Iraqi's Mosul Dam is damn suspicious. That's a damn critical asset. Fake ISIS can cut power to Irbil and kill any Kurds remaining in Mosul. Yet the Peshmerga fighters twice now have reported having to retreat because the KDP couldn't find any bullets to send them. What the hell kind of Puppet-government-in-waiting in Irbil is so intept that they lose the Dam of Death because they can't arrange a damn pickup truck of ammo for the only people willing to fight for it? 

The Peshmerga should take a lesson from Ukraine: U.S. puppet governments are horribly incompetent at the most basic logistical tasks of fielding an army. Ukriane soldiers are defecting to Russia. Not because of ideology, but because they are dehydrated, starving and have no ammunition. They were deployed to Eastern Ukraine and then basically abandoned. Their oligarch commanders wouldn't even answer phone calls from field commanders.

Peshmerga: you are completely fucked or soon will be. Your best bet is to march on Irbil, kill any Fake ISIS in your way, and then keep marching to the KDP headquarters and finish the job of eliminating enemies of the Kurdish people. And if you have any friends or relatives in Mosul, they better get the hell out of there. It isn't going to take many more U.S. bombs to piss-off Fake ISIS - they're going to blow the dam. How else can Israel ensure the U.S. send their sons and daughters back to Iraq to finish up the genocide and re-open the Kirkuk-Haifa pipeline?

Maliki's fall and Fake ISIS blowing the Mosul dam have been on the drawing board since day one. How could everyone have been so stupid as to trust the dual-citizens in the U.S. government?

Think about this logically. If you had a choice between watching Dear Leader or Kate Upton, who would you prefer to watch? Personally, if Dear Leader is giving a speech, I either find something else to watch or turn the TV off. I cannot stand to listen to his lies.

Forward (over the cliff)!

truthfully, it all depends on how hot these yazidi women are.  if they can get some steamy pictures on the TV and internet, America will rise up and demand their release.

The Yezidis have been persecuted for hundreds of years and are almost hated by everyone. They are considered devil worshippers generally ( which is of course not exactly right ). If you can't get people upset over christians being beheaded, then the yezidis have no chance.


This is all a propaganda campaign of the highest order. These specific attacks in specific areas -western intelligence footprints are all over this.


thenakfully the iraqi army has been liquidating ISIS

Hold on just a second, here. Did you say.... devil worshippers.... ?

That might be the very group that TPTB would go out of their way to protect. The Yezidis wouldn't even really have to be devil worshippers in order to elicit such a response. It would simply take that belief among the Vichy DC/Wall Street/City of London triumvirate of treachery.

Well, he did modify it with ( which is of course not exactly right ) ...which is correct, which also confuses the "hell" out of them ;-)

If i understand right in zoroastrianism the devil made the peacock to show off what he could do. The most beautiful angel venerated by the yezidi is represented by a peacock ergo..


You are right though. If they were luciferian or theistic satanists they would have passports for a place on the mediterranean.

the global we ( the west led by the US ) don't care. If they did firstly they would not have created ISIS. Secondly if they cared they would have bombed convoys back to the stone age months ago.


I have no doubt the insiders and the intelligence community are ejoying this goddamn nonsense bullshit show. This is a big deadly show.


The more I think about it the more I think this is either engineered or ultimately be used to put iraq into a perma failed state then remove kurdistan and bring them under western control.

The US is in shock ot how efficient and deadly ISIS aka ISIL is in attack and taking over targets.  I think they don't want to push a major assault on ISIL because they may change their strategy and possibly destroy the norths oil facilities compoletely.

Christians, shmitians.

The 'noble purpose' of dropping bombs is a lie.

This is all being done because ISIS had US personnel surrounded in Erbil, and there was going to be massive slaughter cumulating in the footage of dead and decapitated Americans being splashed all over the internet.

Barry couldn't give a flying fuck about Iraqi Christians.

Not according to Jack Burton. He claims ISIS is all CIA created/controlled, and this is all a puppet show.

According to a report published in Reuters, the group known as ISIS may have actually been trained over the last two years by the United States government in Jordan. It would be quite ironic if the United States was actually responsible for the training those now destabilizing the Iraqi nation.

The plan appears to have been to train 10,000 “moderates” of Islam in the hope that they would reinforce American interests in the region. Arizona Senator John McCain even paid a visit to the group during training to show his support. McCain was photographed with General Salim Idris, who was later expelled from the group because he was seen as too moderate for them.More on ISIS in the article below.

I run with the wackos who have been saying this for a long long time and the knee jerk reaction of many felllow wckos is to say no shit. I say bless you for being another voice to tall the truth and I an ennobled at seeing this being reported,

May have been. It's whats popular for actual facts these days. Once again, no proof, and I'm not buying it.

That's mostly true, Obama said so last night, to protect US citizens.  As for the Yazidi women, not clear when they were taken captive, before or after US bombing. 

"BREAKING: Iraqi official says hundreds of Yazidi women taken captive by Islamic State militants."

ISIS will have to feed and water them, as opposed to the Yazidi on the mountain top where they are starving. They will eventually be killed in other ways I imagine.

Actually, there may be a more important reason for the "humanitarianism".

Saving oil for Israel

"Remember that the Kurds are Israel’s best – and only – allies in the region. Israeli trainers have been integrated into the pershmerga, and the first oil extracted from the newly-Kurdified regions of collapsing Iraq went straight to the Jewish state. As related on this episode of the Scott Horton Show, ISIS is at the gates of Irbil, the Kurdish regional government’s capital city. This is why we hear the War Party loudly demanding US military intervention – not to save the Yazidis, but to save a key Israeli ally."


How dare they take the women!! What's next, the children? This means moar war!! More freedom fries forthcoming.
