ISIS Coalition SITREP #52

Morning and welcome to the room…..today the info coming out of the conflict zone is a bit thin….it seems a couple Royals farting around and the release of a torture report will get all the coverage……

Item 1–The US has been saying that the Iraqi military will be ready next Summer for a major offensive…….but there are other plans being called……

The Pentagon has been of two minds about the timing of an Iraqi offensive on Mosul, saying in October that it would be conservatively a year before Iraq was ready to move on the city, and then in November talking up a January offensive.

That January offensive is getting awfully close, and Iraq is looking forward to what some officials were saying would be an “easy” attack on the massive, ISIS-held city.

Now, the Pentagon is back to warning Iraq they aren’t nearly ready, noting that Iraq likely won’t have serious local support and don’t have nearly the Sunni militia backing they need.

This is going to be a cluster f*ck…….

Item 2–Old problems are starting to show its face yet again…….

The blood of two militants killed during Islamic State’s rout in the Iraqi town of Jalawla has yet to be washed away, but a turf war is already brewing between Kurdish and Shi’ite forces that jointly drove the insurgents out.

The recapture of disputed territory and towns such as Jalawla is reopening rivalries over the boundary between areas of Kurdish control and those administered by the Shi’ite-led Baghdad government.

Another problem that will be the undoing of all that the Coalition is trying to accomplish……

Item 3–On a horrific turn….ISIS has executed by beheading of 4 Christian children because they refused to convert……this just shows that there is nothing Islamic within this organization.

Item 4–the build-up of troops continues….

U.S. allies have committed to send about 1,500 forces to Iraq to help train and advise Iraqi and Kurdish soldiers battling the Islamic State, which increasingly appears on the defensive, the top U.S. commander guiding the coalition effort said on Monday.

Lieutenant General James Terry, commander of Operation Inherent Resolve targeting the militants in Iraq and Syria, said the forces would come on top of the up to 3,100 troops U.S. President Barack Obama has authorized to deploy to Iraq

I apologize for the minimum amount of info…..maybe tomorrow if the media gets its head out of the Royals butt long enough to report news we will have a better briefing……

Thanx for your time and attention…..

Finally Taking Israel To Task

The news of an escalation of violence in the Middle East just brings to light the complexities of the problems between Israel and Palestine….the world is finally starting to see that Israel’s actions are not all about self-defense and that their racist policies are unacceptable……well unacceptable to most of the countries on this planet.

The boycott, divest and sanctions movement is starting to have an effect….Israel is starting to suffer…….Israel is calling on their paid agents….the US and the UK to get involved and to protect them from international sanctions……

Since the late 80’s the movement to recognize Palestine has been moving at a slow pace…..but since the latest Gaza incursion by Israel the tempo has pickup……and and of today this is the map of the countries that recognze Palestine as a legit state…..

Very soon the parliament of Spain will vote on recognition…..to add ammo to the vote….469 prominent Israelis has sent an official letter to the Spanish parliament asking them to vote yes on recognition.

Word has come out that the EU is considering sanctions be imposed on Israel………as reported in Salon…….

The European Union is contemplating a variety of measures that would punish Israel for its occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to an internal EU document obtained by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Among the measures proposed in the document are sanctions against European companies that do business in Israeli-occupied settlements. The document also calls on the EU to reconsider “funding or capacity-building activities indirectly helping to perpetuate the status quo of occupation” and urges “support, or non-opposition” for Palestinian moves like “applications to international organizations” and seeking recognition. Moreover, the document proposes that European leaders consider recognizing Palestinian statehood, as more than 130 countries, including Sweden, have done.

To be fair (something Israel is incapable of doing) there is a story that refutes the sanctions consideration, as reported in Ynet News.com…….

The European Union has no intention of imposing sanctions on Israel if it takes steps to block a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the EU’s new foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said on Monday.

European diplomats have said the EU is looking at new ways to press Israel to halt its building of settlements on land the Palestinians want for a state, as frustration over the construction enterprise reaches a new high.

It is hard to say which is more accurate….but the Israeli newspaper does have a copy on the internal document from the EU……the document can be viewed here………http://www.haaretz.com/misc/article-print-page/.premium-1.626946

And then there is the US….like the dutiful pet we will not sanction Israel…….

The White House feels strongly about this, but today sought to reassure that they don’t feel strongly enough to actually do anything, denying reports that they were even considering sanctions if the settlement expansion continues as “unfounded and without merit.
Was there any doubt that the US would bow to Israel in silent prayer?

It is about damn time the world woke up from it’s self-imposed blindness when it comes to Israel.  The Palestinian people have suffered for years from the West’s apathy…..maybe now the Palestinians can start to find the justice they richly deserve and have been denied.

When You Have NO Solutions—Sue The Bastards

Americans are ate up with the “Lawsuit Lotto”.

Then there is the Congress, the most wasteful institution in DC…..not only is it a part-time leadership but it is equally as worthless as a governing body……Obama recently got fed up with the dance that Congress was playing on immigration and took matters into his own hands…..

And of course whatever he does is wrong in the eyes of the GOP….they bitch and moan…..whine and shout……and still cannot come up with a plan…

But now they have their little lap dogs to do their work for them……GOP governors…….

More than a third of the states have joined a lawsuit fighting President Obama’s sweeping executive action on immigration. The suit brought by 17 states against the federal government was filed in Texas and announced by Greg Abbott, the state attorney general and governor-elect, reports the Los Angeles Times. He accuses Obama of “abdicating his responsibility to faithfully enforce laws that were duly enacted by Congress and attempting to rewrite immigration laws, which he has no authority to do.” The filing in federal court says the suit “is not about immigration. It is about the rule of law, presidential power, and the structural limits of the US Constitution.”

The other states suing are Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Supporters of Obama’s immigration order called the suit grandstanding, and the administration says the order was legal and has precedent, reports the Wall Street Journal. “The Supreme Court and Congress have made clear that federal officials can set priorities in enforcing our immigration laws, and we are confident that the president’s executive actions are well within his legal authorities,” a White House spokesman says.

Just what the resident of those states need…..a moronic lawsuit instead of jobs and policies that benefit the people…but NOOOOOOOOOOO!  These turkeys want to grand stand and play the Constitutionality card….a term they do not understand.  It all sounds impressive but in reality it is a game and a political theater.

We as a nation are trying to have that talk….not the sex one….but rather the one on race.

I hear people say that things are much better or maybe I should say better….then the days when black men were strung up for whistling at a white girl……that the country has learned to be more open and tolerant……first let me voice an opinion on the thinking…BULLSHIT!

Americans are doing what they always do…..delude themselves
