Obama Sends Another 130 Marines Into Iraq To... Advise

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In what appears to be the peak of arrogance (at the ignorance of the American people), Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has just announced that an additional 130 "military advisers" - mostly Marines - will be sent to Iraq to help the Kurds fight ISIS. We have two simple questions: 1) Since when did Marines become non-combat-troops? and 2) Is the President going to call all their wives and explain that their boots will not touch the ground? As gentle reminder, no less than 8 hours ago the adniinstration was considering 75 'military advisers' and now it's nearly double that?

 

Mostly Marines...

 

 

But have no fear, these are not combat troops...

 

 

Evebn the mainstream media is starting to question the adminstration's honesty...

We assume that means they are going to talk the ISIS jihadis to death!!

Enough with the BS and wasting lives of our soldiers. Send the Chinese army there.

Inflation.  But it's transitory.  Just "noise" in the data.

Hey, this is great news!

The PYD have been getting beat to hell by ISIS for months. They're just farmers and shopkeepers and don't have decent equipment or any kind of training. Ammo is hard to come by. Little towns around the provincial capital of al Hasakah city are always under attack. The Mount Sinjar refugees helped over the border by the PYD could use the protection as well.

Assad's troops help when they can, but the PYD is mostly on it's own to fight ISIS and the FSA. Every U.S. marine will be most welcome - it's about time the Syrian Kurdish PYD get some support to fight terrorists.

Wait... the marines are going to Iraq to help the Iraqi Kurds? [facepalm] But of course... some Kurds are more equal than others.

Yeah, if you want it to look like a false-flag, you send the Marines.  If you want it to BE a false-flag you send the CIA (although you don't need to send them per se, since they're already there).

What problem? The only problem I see is them pissing away more of my money to kill people. I couldn't care less if muslims want to kill each other.

Seriously, the only saving grace to all this quagmire is the 1500 year-old Sunni vs Shiite smackdown - they hate each other far more than they hate anyone else. Just think if there was only one Muslim sect?

If we do that, no more oil to sell for dollars. Plus, no more war to distract the American populace by keeping them scared of a foreign boogeyman.

Mission creep.  If Obama thinks that this is going to be cheap he has another thing coming.  They are about to have a civil war in the capital and as soon as the Kurds say we split, look out.  The Shiites will demand and make their own territiory and they will start to grab at things also.

You've got this all wrong, didn't you underdstand the Kobe Bryant - Lakers analogy?

It's just like basketball... well... except the part about wanting to cut the heads off the infidels and pose children with it... But otherwise, just like that...

I'm interested in what they will 'do' once one of these 'advisors' gets captured and beheaded on YouTube. That number of advisors will shoot up like one the Ebola charts.

Wonder if Obomba told them to leave all their boots at home? He just said the other day that there would be "no boots on the ground".

Advisers wear dessert camo flipflops (as opposed to the desert ones with lollipops and gumdrops and ice-cream cones).

Ohh, Ohh, Let me do a Tony Wilson impression here:

"Presidential flipflops and boot liqueurs tiptoe around the Obama-Bush, with suckers, gumbombdrops, and icecream Cohens Milkening it for all the US is worth."

How many us troops have been 'advising' them for the past decade? We spent trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives allegedly training these people to do this themselves, and they couldn't with 10s of thousands of boots on the ground, what makes any of these people think a handful of advisors are going to make any difference. If their army couldn't hold ground, which is by far the easiest part, what makes them think they will ever retake any? Retaking ground you've already lost requires a lot more effort. If they ran away from people charging at them, how are a few 'advisors' going to convince them to assault an entrenched and determined enemy?

True.

Altho in general, I'm friendly and well disposed to Americans - individually.

But getting more and more alarmed by your Adninnystration, every day.

There is an "American" problem - which you'all are gonna have to solve for yourselves.

Good luck with that.

And hopefully you won't suck the rest of us into a shit-storm in the process.
