    They don't believe in operational security unless it's something bad they themselves did.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. Are there any past mistakes that this Obama administration isn't willing to repeat?

    I don't see the sense in announcing an attack UNLESS one wants so start a prolonged war whereby the president and congress (which hasn't really objected to this announcement) wish to enrich the industrial military complex.

    It's a brilliant idea and makes some real problems for ISIS, including recruitment. 80,000 Iraqis backup up by Western and ME airpower, heavy group equipment and intelligence are going to attack 2,000 ISIS fighters.

    What does ISIS do? Flee? Stay and be slaughtered? It isn't easy to recruit people to go to slaughter zone either.

    And it known the Iraqi military isn't going to be nice in interrogations to determine who is and isn't ISIS.

    As for those claiming we are telling ISIS our tactics? This hasn't been done at all. The only thing announced is that a massive attack to liberate the city of Mosul is coming. This is long overdue.

    There is no logical connection in that message.

    The reason for announcing the offensive is so Obama can look like he's doing something.

    This operation either, won't happen, or a half hearted attempt will be made,mthen Obama can say, "see? I'm doing something. I tried to launch an offensive, but I couldn't, because fill in excuse here.

    Oh come on. Give the military you served in some credit. It's a diversion. Same as when Saddam thought we were coming in by sea and never did. These stupid ****ers are going to build up everything they have in Mosul and we attack somewhere else. Then when they stream out of Mosul to come to the aid of the others we bomb the **** out of them.

    You rightwing armchair generals kill me!
