In Iraq, Obama’s Bombing The Wrong Targets

Mission creep is slowly escalating President Barack Obama’s new war on Iraq, as it always does in these cases.

What ostensibly started out as a “humanitarian” mission to rescue people trapped on an Iraqi mountain is morphing into a search and destroy mission. Much to the delight of the military-industrial complex, American fighter jets and drones are now patrolling the skies and blowing up billions of dollars of what was formerly American weapons and materiel abandoned by the Iraqi army as it fled the ISIS hoard.

But Obama’s bombing the wrong targets. If he wants to stop the ISIS threat with bombs, he needs to bomb the source.

ISIS is/was funded by putative U.S. allies Saudi Arabia (the same country that spawned 15 of the 9/11 hijackers and funded the attacks), Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.

The terror group rose from the ashes of Libya following the overthrow — with U.S. assistance and arms — of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. ISIS grew in the Syrian civil war, again with U.S. arms, assistance and training. It is, by the way, the same group of people that John McCain and his neocon toadies wanted to overtly assist — as opposed to the covert assistance provided by the regime — in its efforts to overthrow the Syrian government.

If he truly wants to stop ISIS, Obama needs to start bombing Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE and, most especially, Washington, D.C. Of course, we know he doesn’t.
