    Show us a link that proves the launch date of Operation Iraqi Freedom was common knowledge.

    Coulda, shoulda, woulda. Suppose it was a fake announcement and they attack next week instead of next month or don't attack at all and just hold siege to the city. Would that be a surprise?
    Be sure and let us know when it happens.


    Well, it was basically the Iraq invasion in a nut shell.
    You're calling our troops idiotic?

    The problem is not with the strategy but with the timing. This should have been done back in 2004. We should have told the Iraqi government and people Hey...you KNOW this storm is coming. You have 5 years with our presence to train you to manage the storm. After that...ride it out. We did not.

    "....If the Pentagon sticks to its current war plan, one day in March the Air Force and Navy will launch between 300 and 400 cruise missiles at targets in Iraq. As CBS News Correspondent David Martin reports, this is more than number that were launched during the entire 40 days of the first Gulf War.....

    On the second day, the plan calls for launching another 300 to 400 cruise missiles. ...

    The battle plan is based on a concept developed at the National Defense University. It's called "Shock and Awe" and it focuses on the psychological destruction of the enemy's will to fight rather than the physical destruction of his military forces.....

    If Shock and Awe works, there won't be a ground war....."

    No, I think you were.

    Bush was president in 2004, good admission.

    Re: U.S. Announces Plan for Massive Counter-ISIS Attack [W:228]

    Looks like ISIS decided to blow-up the Mosul Public Library. As one of their responses. Then the Church of Mary and the University Theater. 9 hrs ago.



    While the world was watching the Academy Awards ceremony, the people of Mosul were watching a different show. They were horrified to see ISIS members burn the Mosul public library. Among the many thousands of books it housed, more than 8,000 rare old books and manuscripts were burned. “ISIS militants bombed the Mosul Public Library. They used improvised explosive devices,” said Ghanim al-Ta'an, the director of the library. Notables in Mosul tried to persuade ISIS members to spare the library, but they failed.

    On the same day the library was destroyed, ISIS abolished another old church in Mosul: the church of Mary the Virgin. The Mosul University Theater was burned as well, according to eyewitnesses. In al-Anbar province, Western Iraq, the ISIS campaign of burning books has managed to destroy 100,000 titles, according to local officials. Last December, ISIS burned Mosul University’s central library. Iraq, the cradle of civilization, the birthplace of agriculture and writing and the home of the Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Babylonian and Arab civilizations had never witnessed such an assault on its rich cultural heritage since the Mongol era in the Middle Ages.....snip~
