We are going to get dragged back in to this goddamn mess and it is going to be bad.

You would prefer another target, a military target?

Calmamity: We are going to get dragged back in to this goddamn mess and it is going to be bad.


To be specific
We are going to get dragged back in
The Russians are going to get dragged back in
The Iranians are going to get dragged back in
Turkey is going to get dragged back in

Strangely enough, Saudi Arabia gets to sit this one out, go figure

I think the best air strike the US could make would be on Maliki 's head.

This guy just continues to do everything wrong.

Corvus: I think the best air strike the US could make would be on Maliki 's head.


This. He has been the sole reason this is happening. First, by not working with us for a Status of Troops agreement, and second, by being such a horrible leader that the Sunni tribes that would normally be fighting ISIS as intruders, are working with them or sitting it out until Maliki is deposed.

Once that happens the Sunnis will try to figure out a way to dislodge the terrorists.

Normally I don't SERIOUSLY advocate unrestricted nuclear strikes on non-hostile targets; but this time...really...don't you think...?

Your desire to slaughter millions for the crime of living under a government you don't like is duly noted.

This is awful! According to Dick Cheney, the only thing worse than not wasting any more money and American lives in Iraq is letting Russia do it instead.

That's like the start of every war ever.

You don't have to slaughter millions of civilians.

Just blow up the northern oil refineries.

Everybody goes home. No money to be made anymore.

This is an outrage! Bombing civilian targets in Iraq? THAT'S OUR JOB!

Now let's do a whopper of a false flag in Chechnya and get the whack jihadists moving in that direction.

Are ISIS and other assorted militants considered "civilian targets" now? Did subby even read the linked article?

At the time of submittal, BBC was reporting that initial reports said that a market and a commercial district were hit.

No, just for the crime of being stupid.

Otherwise, I'd have to nuke myself.

If Russia were to step up it's game,   they could probably deliver some aircraft to Iraq that pilots would actually have some experience with.    I believe some of the SU's would suffice.

I'm not saying they are planning on it, but if Iraq asks, they may consider.

Read the article.  The Iraqis hope to have Russian aircraft on hand by the end of the week.

Curious to when they'd be operational, however.

We already won the Iraq war. John McCain told me so.

They Iraqis elected Maliki. They can just have a super freedum happy election if they don't like them.

Right up until they hit the ground.

"The enemy of my enemy is also my friend" is what Maliki is thinking here and while there is some truth in that statement it's also true that you need boots on the ground to hold land not just fighter jets and bombers. Getting Russians planes in the air while the US still hems and haws over delivering the 36 planes Iraq has already bought doesn't look good. The entire region is rapidly turning into a total clusterfark. My main takeaway here is that it's high time the west started weaning itself off of the oil in this region so we can just ignore them.
