First things first, I am very pleased to see Iraqi forces retaking Bayji and I understand the strategic implications involved. The Bayji refinery is central to the Iraqi economy. Whoever controls Bayji – ISIS, Iraq, etc – controls Iraq.
That said, iraqi forces have succeeded with a little help from us. The imagery of precision airstrikes over Bayji are depictions of US and allied airpower striking ISIS targets.
Striking targets so that control of oil could be ensured. Administration officials have stated as much.
But isn’t this the no blood for oil administration? Aren’t these the people who have wailed incessantly over the alleged sins of big oil? Now they are putting airmen in harm’s way to support Iraq’s oil industry?
What would Cindy Sheehan have to say about this?
Last Sunday, on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace Juan Williams said “maybe they would have if he’d been a black Muslim”.
The “he” in question was Doug “Gyrocopter” Hughes. The “they” in question was the police. The “what” was “shot him down”.
Silly Juan. Too much time on #blacklivesmatter appears to have dulled his mind. Doesn’t he realize Hughes was merely parroting Democrat demands for campaign finance reform?
Of course he’d not have been shot down. It’s a wonder he wasn’t met by a chorus line of Congressional Democrats with a Scooby van roaring in down Independence to make the photo op.
Chris Roberts, internet security expert, was busted by the feds and banned by United from flying on their aircraft.
Who wasn’t busted and banned? People who know what Chris Roberts knows and who can hack into aircraft systems and do bad things. What’s the difference between Roberts and those people?
Roberts isn’t trying to do bad things.
Why then, as a far left loon gyrocopters his way to Capitol Hill and yet another White House perimeter breach occurs, does Chris Roberts get banned and busted?
Shouldn’t he be hired immediately to explore faults in airline security? Or are we the sheeple supposed to consume his narrative and emerge with the fraudulent belief that right now there is no one on board a commercial airliner capable of hacking into it’s systems and taking it down. Not even an ISIS member.
The White House finally said it was Christians slaughtered by ISIS. Why?
Because Hillary announced her candidacy as via Josh Earnest (and his recent commentary regarding the Clinton Foundation’s finances) and they’ve hitched Obama’s legacy to her campaign wagon.
In other words, it’s purely political.
Just like when Obama astonishingly dismisses Iranian nuclear-talk as rhetoric for domestic political consumption within Iran.
It’s all political for these people.
