Lies, Damn Lies and Laziness

We’re told this is a “new development” and that ISIS only recently threatened the US troops on Al-Assad airbase in Western Iraq.

ISIS seizes Iraqi Town

 

Huh so this is new?

Then explain this older article that states it’s been an issue since last year:

US Troops Under “Frequent Attack” by ISIS in Western Iraq

This doesn’t sound much different than when I was in Iraq in 2005. We trained the Iraqis on the base. The terrorists lobbed mortar rounds in and sniped a bit. We sent out artillery and air strikes.

The only difference seems to be that our boys aren’t allowed to go outside the wire and chase the bad guys down. Then again…are they? They seem to be allowed to do “training missions” with the Iraqis to gauge their effectiveness.

Kinda like we lugged our “instructor pilots” used to lug a poor Vietnamese kid in the back seat on bombing missions so they could call them “training missions.”

Just admit the truth. Fight or give it up. Stop pretending.

They’re already trying to spin the latest reports that the attack wasn’t 8 disorganized individuals…but 20-25 troops with a plan. Also the attack may not have been stopped by the Iraqis. The Americans may in fact have stopped it for the most part.

However, admitting that the HUGE force of Iraqis on the base were unable to stop the attack of a handful of ISIS fighters would make our mission sound even more hopeless, so we can’t do that. We have to TELL people that the Iraqis did it on their own.

Besides that, the whole idea of a “multinational force” is falling apart. The UAE has stopped flying missions. The United States is flying 85% of the missions as it is. That 15% comes out to about 2 per day by the other 10 countries put together.

Hardly “overwhelming” air power. And we’re paying for it all. Jordan for example is getting its $300 million in foreign aid nearly doubled to $500 million a year. That in addition to supplying basically ALL of the weapons the whole coalition is using in the war. Our “allies” just have to show up.

Man that’s a sweet deal! All the fun of war with none of the cost! Looks like “allied” pilots get to fly one mission a week, enjoy free everything, and brag about “fighting terrorism” back home. If you’re a fighter pilot it really doesn’t get any better. That’s Valhalla right there.

Heck, the Syrian Air Force (the “bad guys” remember?) have actually been bombing ISIS as much as our “allies” are!

How sad is that?

We have to pretend that we’re not doing anything and it’s all the locals doing the work. After all, otherwise the whole battle plan (we train the locals to fight themselves) is put in jeopardy. Lie, Lie and Lie some more. When that doesn’t work…Lie again.

    If (or more likely when) we end up getting dragged back in to this mess I can foresee a metric shitton of friendly fire incidents. After all ISIS is tooling around the desert in American equipment. Imagine the mess when we show up…it’s gonna be a huge mess especially for the pilots and drones running air support missions. Are those Humvees ours or theirs? What about those tanks? Never mind that I’ve seen photos of ISIS guys running around in uniforms that look damn similar to our own camo patterns.

  3. THE WORDS OF GOD THE FATHER-BY STEVE FINNELL

    Where do men find the words of God the Father? Why do men reject the written words of God the Father?

    John 7:16 So Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me.
    John 8:28 So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.
    John 12:49-50 For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. 50 I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak , I speak just as the Father told Me.”

    The teachings of Jesus and the actions of Jesus were all from God the Father. Jesus did not read and follow the man-made catechisms from the Jewish elders. Jesus did not get His instruction from the scribes and Pharisees.

    WHERE DID THE APOSTLES GET THEIR DOCTRINE?

    John 14:24-26 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me. 25 These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
    John 16:12-15 ….13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth…… He will disclose to you what is to come……

    The apostles learned from Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The words of Jesus were that of the Father. The Father sent the Holy Spirit to the apostles so they could remember all that Jesus taught them and be taught future events.

    2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

    The gospel of Christ, the terms for pardon, and the doctrine for Christian living, are all from God the Father. Jesus, the apostles and the Holy Spirit delivered the message. It is all found in the Bible.

    Jesus, and the Holy Spirit taught the apostles ALL THE TRUTH.There is no more truth, in addition to, what the Father has given us through Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the apostles. All the truth is found in the Bible and the Bible alone.

    The apostles had all the truth before John Calvin, John Wesley, Joesph Smith Jr, all the Popes, Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, and Martin Luther were born. There is no new Scripture. There is no new revelation from God.

    THE APOSTLES WERE GUIDED INTO ALL TRUTH BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. There are no new truths found in the catechisms, creed books nor any other extra-Biblical books written by men.

    THE ONLY APOSTLE ALIVE TODAY ARE THE FALSE ONES!

    MEN REJECT THE WORDS OF THE GOD THE FATHER BY OBEYING MAN-MADE DOCTRINE, RATHER THAN ACCEPTING THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE AS THE TRUTH!
