Mission Creep: From Rescuing Iraq Refuges, The US Is Now Assisting Kurds In Fighting ISIS With Drones, F-18s

Mission Creep: From Rescuing Iraq Refuges, The US Is Now Assisting Kurds In Fighting ISIS With Drones, F-18s (ZeroHedge, Aug 16, 2014):

Just over a week ago, Obama announced that the US military intervention in Iraq would be solely under the pretext of “humanitarian intervention” while US troops would be deployed exclusively as “advisers”, and nothing else. 7 days later, the siege on Mount Sinjar is virtually over with the US announcing that “far fewer Iraqi refugees were found on mount Sinjar“, and yet the US finds it difficult to leave: something which the current president crusaded against his predecessor over. And today it was finally confirmed that the latest US airborne assault of Iraq (so far without a land invasion force) has just suffered terminal mission creep, when US airstrikes, by both F-18s and drones, were used not to protect and safeguard the besieged refuges but to aid Kuridsh forces in retaking the critical Mosul dam from ISIS militants who took control of the critical piece of infrastructure in early August.

  1. Come on, now. OB spent a lot of time and money training this army, and provided modern weapons for them. They are USA supported in Syria as well.
    Without OB, they could never have existed.

    OB CLEARLY stated we are not at war with islam, and NEVER will be.
    So what is this, him attacking islam? Now, they will want him dead along with the rest of us.

    I really don’t see the problem. They are doing EXACTLY as he intended.
    They are an anti-colonial force, exactly what he intended it to be. Unfortunately he is head of a major colonial force to them. They are planning to get to the white house.

    Too bad. OB never really understood islam.
