You Can’t Not Have a Ground War in Iraq

Obama Declares Perpetual War

President Barack Obama escalated the drone war he has conducted for the past five and a half years by declaring his intention to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, or ISIL. Since August 8, Obama has mounted at least 154 airstrikes in Iraq. He will send 475 additional US troops, increasing the total number in Iraq to about 1,600.

Three architects of the failed Iraq War strategy have written up a strategy to defeat ISIS that “will require as many as 25,000 ground troops in Iraq and Syria.” Sadly, the document doesn’t say “PEW-PEW PEW-PEW BOOOOM” when you open it, and it evinces no familiarity with Clone Wars .Read more…

Operation OK Let’s Go Back There And Maybe Clean Up Some Spots We Missed, But You Know We’re Just Gonna End Up Making A Mess Again is a go. Too bad; we could probably have used that name next week, when the Libyan Republic of Jihad makes ISIS look like JROTC.Read more…

Realizing Lifelong Dream, Dick Cheney Is Greeted as Liberator in U.S.

Much has been made of the return of America’s neoconservative Iraq hawks to the media circuits since that country’s slow descent into chaos became a fast descent into chaos.

What’s Your Strategy for Messing With the “Islamic State”?

Barack Obama talked to the media last week about U.S. action against the Islamic State and went off-script, saying offhand that the U.S. didn’t have a strategy yet for defeating the fundamentalist dirtbags muscling in on Iraq.
