    Syrian Warplanes Strike in Western Iraq, Killing at Least 50 People

    Syrian Warplanes Strike in Western Iraq, Killing at Least 50 People
    Second Consecutive Day of Airstrikes by Syria Is Aimed at Shoring Up Iraqi Armed Forces

    BAGHDAD—Syrian warplanes carried out airstrikes in western Iraq, stepping up the military role of the U.S. adversary in helping Baghdad's Shiite-dominated government fight Sunni insurgents.

    The strikes on Tuesday came as the Pentagon announced that the first 130 members of a potential 300 U.S. military advisers were in place in Baghdad to start assessing and improving the Iraqi army's ability to counter the gains of rebels led by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham.

    And the escalation continues. Under Obama our geopolitical adversaries fill the power vacuum.

    As they should, we shouldn't be involved in this. Obama is actually making a good call on this. Syria and Iran have a direct interest in making sure Al-Qaeda is obliterated as they are a direct threat to both of them.

    The USA has been arming and funding ISIS. Must be doing just what the USA wants. Now the Mainstream Brainstream Media always refer to ISIS instead of terrorists. If we, the USA, supply the funds and arms, then we might be identified as the terrorists. I mean, ISIS slipped right through USA satellite imagery with their ghosts movements of miles long column of troops in Toyota trucks and noone noticed. Hot dam, y'all, whos' side we on, anyway? Northrup-Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon gotta be happy campers as all these warring parties need weapons and business is good. "War is good business, and business is good." Somebody give the marketing and promotions departments a bonus for pulling this latest one off. A lil' killin' here, devastation and mayhem over there and the stock is looking good. Ain't CORPORATISM grand?

    They don't see it that way Dave. It's just all bad politics on Obama's watch. Corporate America gets the GOP pass.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    And do we have a direct interest in making sure AQ is obliterated? Right now our president is acting as if we dont, though we was swift to take credit for things when they were going well. I disagree. Im not going to lose this war only to be worse off than when we started it.

    We do not have the legal authority required to engage in military intervention in Iraq. The authorization of military force signed in 2002 expired and the 2001 authorization of millitary force does not cover millitary involvement in Iraq.

    Some good points. That said amongst the terror groups, maybe we should provide supplies-to the losing side. Leave them fighting each other, its good for us, and I dont care about them. Civilians are another matter.

    Not really, I remember the context of the start of the wars-why we decided to go there. To leave now-in a worse spot than when we got there for political purposes is sickening. This goes back well before even W, however Obama's foreign policy and relations have been a disaster.

    And what does this have to do with the GOP? Obama gives a corporate pass like its cool.

    Yes, Obama too gives corporate pass. That's why American politics is screwed up. It's time for a non establishment president. Unfortunately, partisans don't understand that, therefore expect more of the same.
