New Iraq war!

Recommended Posts

Hurray!

 

It was about time we had a new one. Was getting to be a bit long since the last one.

 

:clap:

 

Britain has embarked on a renewed war in the Middle East, starting with air strikes in the next 48 hours, after MPs overwhelmingly sanctioned a UK air assault against Islamic State targets in Iraq.

 

Cabinet ministers also told the Commons that Isis will ultimately only be crushed if the terrorist group is pursued to its bases inside Syria, signalling an eventual widening of the conflict that is expected to last several years.

 

Downing Street said six Tornado jets would be in the skies over Iraq very shortly, adding the Commons has sanctioned the sending of UK military advisers to Iraq to train the country’s army and act as target setters for the RAF.

The rebels we trained, financed and armed to fight Assad (who we also used to train and arm) in Syria but who have now turned round and started fighting in Iraq as well, trying to oust the government that we helped to put in there when Saddam finally was overthrown

Why aren't we just training someone else to go after these guys? Maybe we could give someone a bunch of weapons to deal with the problem for us.

The only trick will be finding someone we haven't already given weapons and training to.

The Iraqis held a series of demonstrations saying they were against Western intervention as they could handle Isis themselves......so we can look forward to more fighting after this bout of fighting is done

Numbers are outdated, it's all about the colons and subtitles now.

 

This time it's "Iraq war: Iraq harder".

They should number these Iraq wars, it gets a bit confusing.

 

Well maybe this one doesn't count as an Iraq war since we aren't fighting Iraq this time.....kind of like when Sean Connery made that James Bond movie that wasnt a real James Bond movie

OR ... give both sides a shirtload of gear, then let them fight it out amongst themselves. Last man standing wins!

fwiw, Edward Snowden himself was a big libertarian at the time he made the revelations. He was a right winger, not some "pinko liberal" or whatever label Fox News etc. would like to pin on him.

Libertarian is not equivalent to right-winger. When I was growing up, leftists were more likely to be libertarians (keep the government's hands off my body) than the rightists, who were always trying to control everyone's private lives.

 

Technically, though, the libertarian/statist axis is considered to be orthogonal to the left/right (liberal/conservative) one.
