The Latest US Invasion Of Iraq Begins

Despite numerous explanations that no boots-on-the-ground will be on-the-ground in Iraq in the war against Islamic State, it appears, as CNN reports, that the US military has moved Search-and-Rescue (S&R) assets to Northern Iraq as part of a "constant rebalancing" depending on the evolving airstrike-only mission.

Of course, as the 'unnamed source' was so quick to explain, this was in no way a response to threats from The UAE to pull out of the coalition unless S&R assets were placed in Iraq since, cynically speaking, the UAE demands are only the result of US demands that it demand it anyway.

However, as Bloomberg notes - on the heels of selling 170 M-1 Abrams tanks to Iraq indirectly 'stimulating' the US economy ("middle-class economics" don't forget) - US allies are now withholding military power in an effort to get Obama to do more in Syria (which once again cynically-speaking -gives the President further excuse to provide billions in fresh military contracts to General Dynamics & Northrop Grummond) all in the name of peace, prosperity and the American way of life.

U.S. allies in the fight against Islamic State extremists are withholding military capabilities as leverage on President Barack Obama to do more in Syria,according to Bloomberg.



The tensions between the U.S. and two allies, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey, have become public as they have set conditions for some military cooperation.

At issue are calls from the U.A.E. for U.S. pilot-rescue teams to be positioned closer to the Syrian battleground, where they’d be primed for quicker action, and from Turkey to impose a protected safe zone in Syria. Their demands create problems for Obama, who officials have said is wary of drawing the U.S. more deeply into Syria’s turmoil.

Underlying that issue is disagreement over Obama’s decision to make fighting Islamic State the priority over efforts to remove the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

In congressional testimony on Tuesday, Marine Lieutenant General Vincent Stewart, director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, confirmed a trend that troubles regional allies Turkey and Arab states such as Saudi Arabia. As Bloomberg reports, he told the House Armed Services Committee, "we assess the conflict is trending in the Assad regime’s favor."

The state department completes the puppetry:


Jordan, “the country that was most impacted” by the killing, “intends to intensify its efforts,” Psaki said.

And this needs our assistance with more military might (spending) and support... and boots on the ground in Iraq... it's only fair.


Which leads down a whole other rabbit hole of conspiracy theory that just became fact

And so, as CNN reports, the U.S. military has moved some search and rescue assets into Northern Iraq, a U.S. official said on Wednesday.

The move was described as part of a constant rebalancing of search and rescue assets that are moved depending on the evolving airstrike mission. The source did not suggest it was a response to United Arab Emirates concerns about proximity of rescue assets and did not say when this latest rotation happened.


The reshuffling comes after news that UAE had suspended participation in coalition strikes out of concern that search and rescue assets were not placed close enough to ensure a timely effort to rescue, a claim disputed by U.S. military officials.

Of course, if we were the cynical historians of the desperation of the military-industrial complex, we could see this whole facade as nothing but smoke and mirrors for economic stimulatory excuses and deficit expansion in the name of saving the world and... the UAE demands are only the result of US demands that it demand it anyway.

US officials confirm suspension of UAE combat missions

The United Arab Emirates, a key Arab member of the US-led coalition against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has not flown combat missions over Syria since last December, US officials say.

The Gulf Arab state dropped out of the group of countries conducting air strikes against ISIL targets in Syria after a Jordanian pilot was captured, citing fears for their pilots' safety in the case of downed planes.

"I can confirm that UAE suspended air strikes shortly after the Jordanian pilot's plane went down," AFP news agency quoted an unnamed US official as saying.

Anytime you have the Airdales and AF types involved in a combat zone there will always be a contingent of Pararescue along with other rescue assets in order to get to the downed aircrew first and get them out before the enemy has the chance to capture them. Against ISIS, it's even more important. For Navy and AF flyers, there is no pow camps if captured. ISIS knows that we will not negotiate. It's easier and more cost affective to spend your bucks and manpower on rescuing downed aircrews before the enemy has the chance to capture them. Besides, it also means that the air assets will be pounding ISIS that are trying to get to the aircrew.

It's asinine. We give foreign aid to our allies. Our allies created ISIS to help us achieve our foreign policy goals, so ostensibly, ISIS is an extension of our foreign policy dollars.

Then, we use taxpayer money to destroy something that, in a back channel way, we helped create, and wonder why our allies won't help fight it.

It's like Frankenstein, we are fighting a monster of our own creation. The government STILL wishes to use these creations, ISIS, Al Qaeda, all of these insurgent groups it created, to help it achieve it's foreign policy goals. And the public actually believes they have sprung up organically because the MSM let's them go on believing it.

Morally and ethically, we should just mind our own business, and let the world go to hell. Develop our own resources and trade with the world. Let them kill each other and defend our shores only. That was the vision George Washington had in his farewell address. All this alliance entangling has ruined millions of young peoples lives for nothing. It has gotten us nothing.
