Syria pounds ISIL bases in coordination with Iraq: NGO
Yahoo ^

Posted on 06/15/2014 8:00:33 AM PDT by Perdogg

Syria's army has been pounding for 24 hours major bases of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in coordination with the Baghdad government, a monitor said Sunday.

The strikes against ISIL -- which has spearheaded a week-long jihadist offensive in Iraq -- have been more intense than ever, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"The regime air force has been pounding ISIL's bases, including those in the northern province of Raqa and Hasakeh in the northeast," which borders Iraq, said the Britain-based group.

I agree with the analyst who was on FOX last night who said we should let them sort it out on their own and I agree.

Maybe Iraq will let the Syrian Air Force wipe out the ISIS serial killers in Iraq.

It was Col. David Hunt who I saw last night.

He says to let them go at it. Its a tribal society that we will never tame and those who worry about Iraq being broken up aren’t accepting the fact that it already is.

“Time to kick back, fill the bowl and exercise the Redenbacher Strategy.”

BOL!. My wife and I were at Costco on Friday, and I restocked Orville’s great movie time popcorn.

We are in prime sun tea time, and I have a great supply of great tea bags, and my wife has several pots various mint plants growing where I brew my sun tea. When I put the sun tea brewing jar out in the sun, I pinch off some mint and put it in the jar.

So I will be exercising the Redenbacher Strategy as this event rolls on.

Our foreign policy upto this point has been genius...keep these guys at each others throat so they can’t unify. Now that Hussein is in office he’s doing his best to encourage and bring about that unification.

The Redenbacher Strategy goes well with sun tea, micro beer and good wine.

Whatever could have been done sooner I don't know, bottom line it's too late now.

So yeah let the Islamist's sort themselves out, while they are in the process of doing so, then we should send them a (Nu-Clear) message!

We're Mad As Hell, And We're Not Going To Take It Anymore...BOOM!

The only bad thing is that the extremists won’t stop until after they kill or subject all westerners to their power OR they themselves are stopped.

Our bowing out of the picture, only gives them time to tool up to conquer us.

Meanwhile, while we thought things were going to hell with Obama at the helm, it appears its worse than that.

Then, the collective "we" had better get serious about identifying islam for the existential threat it is and act accordingly, instead of parsing with "war on terror" catch phrases as a strategy to dance to the PC tune while we foolishly nation build our enemies bent on destroying us.

We funded, armed and trained the Iraqi Army to counter balance Iran’s hegemony.

We (defacto) funded, armed and trained the ISIS to fight Assad and Iran/Hezbollah by proxy.

Might we now need to fund, arm and train Assad, Iran and Hezbollah to rein in ISIS?

Which of these five groups are the good guys?

INHO, we’ve trained the military, both DoD and CIA controlled, to plan to integrate the press into their war plans and operational art. It appears those who move on into other power structures, now are able to control the press machine in their broader campaigns.

A major problem has arisen where the public is no longer being sought as a political force to support national agendas. Instead, we have political ‘scientists’ engineering their political agendas aka socialist and progressive engineering.

We no longer know with any veritable cognizance, who is on what side, doing what where.

I remember seeing clips after 9/11 of Muslims through the Middle East cheering. So, with deference and deepest reverence to our Military people who were injured and killed fighting these nutjobs, I say that these people are getting what they cheered for. Terrorism, death, chaos. My hat is off to the PTB who finally figured out that we might be a lot better off if we can get the Muslims to fight and kill each other, rather than focus on killing Americans. Let them continue, and let’s keep all sides armed, angry, and fighting as long as possible.

Watched it! Reminds me of early in the Iraq war - "Oh dude."

It sounded like the guy who kept saying Allah Akbar was getting weaker and weaker.

No this area is devolving back into its tribalist religist fragments. The national borders were an artificial construct created by the French and British during and after WWI.
