REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, BARRY O INSISTED IT WAS NOTHING PERSONAL AND THEN DECLARED, "I JUST DON'T LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE STINKY-POOS. THEY UPSET ME. BUT IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL. I JUST WISH THEY WOULD ALL DIE. BIT OLD STINKY POOS."
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Michael Crowley (Time magazine) documents the US mission creep in Iraq:
From a podium in the White House’s state dining room on the night of Aug. 7, Obama gravely described his authorization of two military operations. One was to stop ISIS’s advance on the Iraqi city of Erbil, which Obama described as a threat to Americans stationed there. The other was to rescue thousands of Yezidi people besieged by ISIS fighters atop Sinjar Mountain.
[. . .]
On a Sunday afternoon ten days later, the White House quietly issued a statement announcing air strikes with the goal of liberating the Mosul dam from the clutches of ISIS militants.
[. . .]
Then, on Sept. 7, came word of still another mission: A Pentagon statement said the U.S. was now bombing ISIS around the Haditha dam, in western Iraq—far from Erbil, Sinjar and Mosul. By now, American drones and planes had conducted about 150 strikes in the country. The U.S. was conducting a de facto air campaign against ISIS in support of Iraq’s government.
Crowley continues with his documentation but for those who need a single example of the mission creep, Michelle Tan (Army Times) reports:
As the U.S. expands its war against the Islamic State, the Army is preparing to deploy a division headquarters to Iraq.
Officials have not identified the division that will deploy — the first division headquarters to go to Iraq since the U.S. withdrawal in 2011.
An official announcement is expected in the coming days. But Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno recently confirmed the Army “will send another division headquarters to Iraq to control what we’re doing there, a small headquarters.”
Yeah, that never-ending Iraq War is expanding. David Corn(nuts) and all the other trashy whores can toss aside ethics and offer justifications but the reality is there for anyone who wants to see it.

In the crazy, upside down world we live in, Christi Parsons and WJ Hennigan (Los Angeles Times) can report:
President Obama said Tuesday that he will "do what's necessary" to fight the Sunni Muslim extremists targeted in a fierce round of U.S.-led airstrikes in Syria and that he'll do so with the support of regional partners whose coordinated bombing makes it "clear to the world that this is not America's fight alone."
Speaking just before his departure for New York to meet with world leaders at the United Nations, Obama said the bombings he ordered overnight had the support of Arab coalition partners.
So how long does this crazy last?
The 'plan' is nothing but bombing.
If the US wasn't taking part in the bombings in Iraq and Syria (along with France), the White House would be decrying these actions, would be insisting that the country or countries carrying them out needed to be punished.
In what world is bombing a country a 'plan' for peace?
In New York today, NINA notes, Iraq's Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari met up with the Danish Foreign Minister Martin Legurd. And Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is in New York today for the United Nations' General Assembly.
Iraq's President Fuad Masum didn't arrive in New York today. Because he was already there. All Iraq News notes he arrived on Monday.
With so much of the government out of the country, maybe it's good that Iraq now has three vice presidents?
Of course, with Nouri al-Maliki being one, that means the other two, Osama al-Nujaafi and Ayad Allawi, must spend the bulk of their time ensuring Nouri's not carrying out a coup.
