Editorial: Iraq

Tom Hayden can't talk Iraq.

Nor can Leslie Cagan.

But both have endorsed War Hawk Hillary Clinton.

Who voted for the Iraq War and cheerleaded it -- the same Iraq War they claimed to oppose.

The same Iraq War that more US troops are being sent into.

Wednesday morning, the above was posted at Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's website and THE COMMON ILLS translated it:

As they prepare for the major battle to fully liberate the city of Mosul and eliminate the gangs of [the Islamic State], and in light of the fact that trainers and advisers from the international coalition will speed up the conclusion of the battle, in consultation with US President Barack Obama and at the request of the Iraqi government the number of American trainers and advisers under the umbrella of the international coalition in Iraq will be increased to provide backup for the Iraqi security forces during the Liberation of Mosul -- and this size of advisers and trainers will reduce once Mosul has been liberated.  We emphasize that the role of trainers and advisers is not combat but only for training and consultation and the only ones who will liberate the land is our [Iraqi] troops.  

Stephen Kalin and Yeganech Torbati (REUTERS) reported, "The United States will send around 600 new troops to Iraq to assist local forces in the battle to retake Mosul from Islamic State that is expected later this year, U.S. and Iraqi officials said on Wednesday."

More US troops.

US President Barack Obama declared June 19, 2014 that it would be 300 troops he'd send to Iraq.

What a liar.

Daniel Wasserbly (IHS JANE'S DEFENCE WEEKLY) explains, "The total authorised US military personnel for Iraq is now around 5,250 troops, but hundreds more are understood to be operating there on a 'rotational' basis through temporary duty assignments."

5,250 when Barack insisted no more than 300.

Where are the so-called leaders of the peace movement?

Tom Hayden, Leslie Cagan, all those fake asses.

Not one damn word from them.

Because they are fake asses.

The editorial board of THE PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE observes:

There are some strong arguments against increasing U.S. troop involvement in Iraq at this point.  The first is that the Iraqi national army, which U.S. forces are supplying and training, continues to show itself relatively toothless on the battlefield — meaning that U.S. forces will play a prominent role in whatever assault on Mosul occurs.  Washington has yet to explain coherently why Americans should care one way or the other who holds Mosul, or Raqqa, for that matter. The argument that taking Mosul would validate continued U.S. support of the Iraqi government of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and the policy of building it a credible national army has a vaguely “dog-chasing-its-tail” quality to it.  If Mr. Abadi’s government had the general support of the Iraqi people, they would put in the field a credible national army on their own account, and his government would not need more American troops to fight its battles.

But the fake asses remain silent.

This illegal war has gone on for over 13 years and the fake asses can't find their damn voices.

People like the turning 80 next year Jane Fonda who can Tweet about Trump but not about Iraq because they're fake asses.  But then an elderly woman in a wig and false eyelashes thinking she's fooling anyone about how elderly she is -- well that's just a dirty, old joke.

Which is all they are now.

They're exposed as the useless whores that they truly are.
