HE'S BEING CALLED "OBUMMER" BUT MOST BELIEVE FADED CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O IS REALLY JUST A BIG OL' TITTY BABY.
REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, BARRY O OFFERED THIS REBUTTAL, "WAH! WAH!"
Today, the US government announced:
Strikes in Iraq
Bomber, fighter, attack, and remotely piloted aircraft conducted 17 strikes in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government:
-- Near Baghdadi, two strikes destroyed two ISIL rocket rails and damaged a third ISIL rocket rail and denied ISIL access to terrain.
-- Near Albu Hayat, one strike struck an ISIL tactical unit.
-- Near Mosul, three strikes struck two separate ISIL tactical units and destroyed an ISIL mortar position and four ISIL fighting positions.
-- Near Ramadi, seven strikes struck two separate ISIL tactical units and destroyed an ISIL home-made explosives cache, an ISIL vehicle, an ISIL boat, an ISIL vehicle-borne bomb, two ISIL buildings, an ISIL heavy machine gun, an ISIL ammo cache, two ISIL weapons caches, and an ISIL fighting position.
-- Near Sinjar, four strikes struck three separate tactical units and destroyed two ISIL fighting positions and three ISIL vehicles.
The bombings have no positive effect.
They do, however, terrorize the Iraqi people.
For example, ALSUMARIA reports the Anbar Provincial Council issued a statement today decrying the bombing by warplanes flying over Falluja and notes that these bombs are effecting the lives of civilians and contributing to the deaths of "women and children and the elderly." Civilians in Falluja are calling for an end to the bombings and safe passage out of Falluja.
Anbar is largely Sunni and what's taking place there in the so-called name of 'liberation' is not seen as such by everyone.
It's funny, isn't it, how when Iraqis object to actions by Bully Boy Bush, we on the left rush to insist that they be heard. But when they're not pleased with Barack, we turn our backs on them and act like they weren't speaking.
Or we whine about the US government interfering in an election but when Barack Obama overturned the results of Iraq's 2010 election, we fall silent.
It's because so many of us lack ethics and integrity.
