Humm the goon's are wobbling about like the demented morons they are.

As far as I know Iraq has already been conducting air strikes against the ISIS positions. The Kurds have also been discussing moving mechanised units in for ground support. The Kurds may have mobilised some of their armoured units. Iran have been discussing rearming and resupplying the Kurds. So it looks like the three main factions have decided to unite for the common good and set their differences to one side. This turn of events and unity is no doubt the driving force behind the Americans change in policy. The Arabs don't need to rely on American assistance which can only be a good thing for the regions short term prospects.

Now Obummer does a U-turn on the American policy. Headless chickens spring to mind! :D The USA, EU and NATO policies are going to shit in all directions with the exception of Israel who have succeeded in killing civilians in the thousands. If there is any justice left in the world we should see a major shift in Western support for the illegal occupation of Palestine.

The Russian sanctions and political superiority will also be piling the pressure on. Afghanistan and Libya are also presenting additional flash points which may drain thinly spread military resources yet further. There may even be a few South American countries smelling the blood in the water as America and the NATO start squirming. It could get very interesting if the American people decide to take advantage of their governments disarray and attempt to overturn their government. A red white 'n blue revolution would certainly be a worthy cause and possibly lead the impetuous for similar reactions throughout the lethargic western populations.


Putin must be rubbing his hands together as the Western powers fumble about on so many economic and military fronts. :D

Maybe the American government are trying to avoid over commitment though as they have added the "if they threaten US interests" caveat. :chuckle:

Obummer has authorised targeted air strikes against extremist Islamic militants in Iraq if they threaten US interests in the country.

The President said he gave the green light to strikes if they were needed to protect American personnel in Iraq.

He said air strikes would be used on militants near the city of Irbil if they threatened American personnel.

However, he said that US troops would not be sent back into Iraq.

The news came as it emerged American planes had successfully carried out a humanitarian aid drop, delivering food and water to 200,000 Christian refugees who have fled for their lives.

The drops were delivered to the Yazidi minority outside the city of Sinjar.

The US President said that extremist Islamic State forces have called for the destruction of the Yazidi people and said America had to act ‘and act now’.

Many of the Yazidi have left their homes and some have taken refuge in nearby mountains.
