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!!

Jeeez, just drop a nuke over there and the problem is solved for good

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.

I read that as "Nose in the Intifada"?

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.

...The MFFD's are being sent to Iraq.

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.

ElvisDog's picture

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 130 troops is good 130,000 must be great right?

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.


The few, the proud, the military advisers

No shit, just like the humanitarian convoy Putin is sending to Ukraine

Send in the swiftboats with John Kerry leading the way.  McCain can follow in an ambulance.

They're young, and not as intelligent as you and me.

Especially with all the great jobs available out there.

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.

Shades of Vietnam. History may not repeat itself, but it sure as shit rhymes.

.Gov cut my soldier's leave short but the Obamas won't be missing any vacation days.  It's good to be king.

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...

Ignore what they say and watch what they do. It "speaks" volumes.

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.

This is a good move.   We need to start winning their hearts-n-minds.    

I'm sure this time it will work.

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".

MsCreant's picture

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."

Saul Alinsky is laughing his ass off in hell.

Mr. Alinksy was Jewish.  You're a Joo hater, apparently. Go to any Klan rallies lately, Adolph?


Did I do that right, nmewn, you predictable, obnoxious cunt?

Duffy's picture

3 junks in record time heh heh heh.

why so serious???

nmewn's picture

Speaking of obnoxious cunts, well hello Duffy.

You've got a little spittle right there, in the corner of your mouth, no the other side, the left side (just like Alinsky).

It was 70 earlier. Just add a few zeros to the number and you'll have the real count.

Greenskeeper_Carl's picture

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?

Is an adniinstration a cute way to call them ninnies?

RECISION's picture

Well... you know, they are your elected representitives...

They represent you.

if you "the people", are venal, hypocritical, lying, thieving, stupid, cheating, trigger-happy ninnies, then I guess the people that represent you, will be too...

Just say'n.



MsCreant's picture

I guess you are not American?

RECISION's picture


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.

RECISION's picture

Ohh look...

some-one down voted my first post.

Which part do you suppose they didn't like?

venal - ?

hypocritical - ?

Stupid - ?

lying - ?

cheating - ?

thieving - ?

trigger happy - ?

I know...  :-)

it was the ninnys comment wasn't it...   

by the way - is it still slander if it's true???
