ISIS Coalition Situation Report (SITREP) #32

With the worthless electoral exercise out of the way now we can return to the important stuff happening in the world…..and nothing is more important the US latest war…….

Quiet and I will begin the briefing…….

Item 1–Remember Irbil?  It pretty much started this whole war thingy…..We jumped into this to protect…..and now it appears that the best laid plans…….

The Kurdish Peshmerga were making some gains against ISIS in late September and early October, backed by US warplanes. The gains began to reverse with an ISIS counteroffensive in mid-October.

At this point, ISIS seems to have recovered much of the territory it ceded in the early days of the US war, and is once again pushing deep into Kurdish territory, with fighting today focusing on a town just 60 km from the Kurdish capital of Irbil.

Irbil is NOT looking so promising for the coalition…..

Item 2–All reports appear to point to a certain degree of insatiability with the Coalition……

The Pentagon has denied that the US strategy against Islamic State (Isis) is in disarray after a series of setbacks as the war known as Operation Inherent Resolve stretches into its fourth month.

“I don’t believe that we view current events as a major setback to the goals that we’ve set with respect to training and equipping the moderate opposition” in Syria, said Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon’s chief spokesman.

Kirby’s remarks came days after an al-Qaida-aligned faction routed one of the Syrian resistance groups on which the US has been depending to anchor an anti-Isis proxy force. The Nusra Front, al-Qaida’s affiliate in Syria, appears now to be allying with Isis, an indication that the Islamist extremist group’s fortunes are rising.

Maybe it is time for the Coalition to come up with a real plan for ISIS……..

Item 3–With a new GOP controlled Congress will that change the direction of the ISIS strategy?

Now that the election’s over, President Obama is changing his tune, and pushing for the lame duck Congress to quickly rubber stamp the conflict before the new one takes office.
The plan so far is not a huge success……a change will be needed….watch this page.
Item 4–Will Congressional war hawks do their thing?
The Republicans took control of the Senate in Tuesday’s elections, but much more important than which party took control is the nature of the incoming Senators from the new ruling party.
It’s not an influx of Tea Party members, reluctant to waste US funds on overseas adventures and suspicious of federal power, but rather a series of hawks in the model of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) that seized the reins of power last night.
Will an authorization for ground troops be waiting around the corner?
Item 5–It is possible that Iran’s generals running Iraq’s war on ISIS?
With ISIS continuing to secure gains across the Anbar Province, Iraq’s counteroffensive is mostly centered on the region due north of Baghdad. The push is slow going.
But it’s not so much the Iraqi military leadership commanding their own counteroffensive, nor really doing the heavy lifting in the fighting, as Shi’ite allies from overseas are increasingly involved.
If true then it is breaking down to sunni vs shi’a….not a good spot to be….at least for now….
Item 6–Baghdad still holds to the belief that foreign troops will not be necessary…..

Buffoons, Clowns And Thieves

Opinion from Chuq’s Desk:

I think Cher should be belting out a tune right about now……….

Everybody will be looking for the hidden agenda by the vote…….first ask why?  The agenda is the same as always….get elected and stay in power….governance?  HA that is the lie the people tell…….

Oh yea…..the 2014 mid-terms are done………and nothing has changed…..we elected the same class of politicians we always elect…..low class of candidates.  This election is a prime illustration of what the country has become.  …..A collection of negativity and misinformation.

Gone are the days when a candidate laid out his/her program to the people and enter the world of social media where the candidate has little time to meet his.her voters.

That was my analysis of the election…….does not matter what state it was or what branch of the government…..there is NOTHING exciting about the outcome and definitely NOTHING of note.

If one takes this progression out to its logical end……in 20-25 years there will be NOTHING left of this country….nothing will be salvageable…….it will be a country of extremes…..wealthy and poor…..the middle class will be non-existent………….  Thanx to Americans voter habits.

Americans refuse to see just how worthless this system has become… is NO longer about electing the right person to carry out a set of policies but rather a perpetual campaign that leaves NO time for the players to do anything worthwhile… from the day a politician is elected it is a stream of campaign appearances and governance takes a backseat to money…..

As long as money is the prime motivator in politics we will continue to elect buffoons, clowns and thieves…it is that simple!

Before this country can get back on track as a prime place to live it must do two things……1–make a working political system and 2–voters that realize they are Americans and not isolated pockets of egocentric bullshit.

This last election has proven just how pathetically moronic this whole system of “picking” a leader has become.  It is true that this country gets the politicians it deserves…..and we vote for buffoons, clowns and thieves….with each vote the country dies a little more.
