NO BOOTS ON GROUND?— WE WERE JUST KIDDING!
"President Obama has repeatedly declared there will be no combat troops on the ground in Iraq to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. But a Senate hearing Tuesday with top US military officials revealed that pronouncement is on very shaky ground—there is now no question ground troops are under active consideration at the highest levels of government," begins a piece at The Nation this morning.
Can you spell Gulf of Tonkin resolution, boys and girls? At the time, we had only “advisers” in Vietnam and it was “not a war.” This time we have over 1,600 “advisers” again, only this time, we are planning to spend $100,000 per “Moderate Rebel,” in training future enemies, as even conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin concedes. Do not expect to see $100,000 for each of our 1 in 5 American children who live in poverty, the National Security State has its priorities.
Meanwhile, the Islamic State is not impressed with these best laid plans of the empire, and has produced a film claiming it will target the White House and kill US troops. The escalation continues.
