America should launch "targeted" military attacks against an emerging "terrorist army" in Iraq if it jeopardises the security of the West, the former head of Coalition forces in the country said last night.
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Telegraph, David Petraeus, one of the most senior figures in the American military over the past decade, said that he would now support limited strikes against the leadership of Isis.
Gen Petraeus's intervention came as Barack Obama, the US President, announced that America was sending 300 special forces advisers to Iraq to help support the fight against Isis. Mr Obama also said that the US was prepared to launch military strikes if future intelligence recommended such action.

Hillary called him Betray Us. I agree except that he betrayed his country when he stood on Obama’s side.
Does ISIS/ISIL USE TWITTER TO SEND FUNeral notices!
I’M SURE that’s being tracked.
IT’S MOAB TIME!!
Why build ‘emif ya don’t try ‘em out once and awhile.
Generals walk a delicate line sometimes.
He certainly had a mix of intrigue like many before him..
What’s Paula Broadwell up to these days?
Bomb a jihadist army that has popular support in Sunni towns where they are welcomed with open arms? I don’t think so. They will eventually go back to Syria and resume the dirty work that Obama tasked them for in the first place - bringing down Assad’s rule.
I thought Patraeus was running the Cub Scouts these day.
How about targeted strikes on those invading the U.S.
Yup ... Like my father used to say ... "Take care of your problems when they're small so that you won't have to deal with them when they have become monumentally monstrous."
“...after Sham, after Iraq, after Jazeera (Saudi Arabian), we are going for you Barrack Obama!”

To protect America?
Would that attack come before or after we give amnesty to some 30,000,000 (look at that number closely) people who hate our laws and our culture and who are seeking to take the southwestern corner of the US from us?
Go away, loser.
Oh, don’t do that. The price of oil will go up.
“I thought Patraeus was running the Cub Scouts these days”
I didn’t know Patraeus was gay /s
Agreed. To help with anything this traitor has to stay now.
“”Hillary called him Betray Us””
Never could understand that. It has since been revealed that they were drinking buddies and pretty close as to confer with one another on different matters. What games they do play in DC. I felt sorry for him when she did that - HA! He’s come out in defense of her re: Benghazi. Go figure! Don’t think much of him any longer!
there is no time for “If”
Send B-52 and carpet bomb anything that remotely looks like organized military activity in the ISIS controlled areas .
Use UAVs for FACs
I’d like to see the loser patraeus go down on a bomb like Slim Pickens in Dr Strangelove.
Petraeus: US Cannot Be Air Force For Iraq Militias ( Sunni vs Shia )
Targeted Strikes is playing war, and making making sure no one gets hurt.
Petraeus could have run for POTUS at one time , yet he thrw it all away in becoming a sycophant for Obama and diving for pootang under his desk .
Where is the truly great man that keeps all of his honor in tact about him ?
I suggest General James Conway USMC (ret)
