Latest absurd whining demand from Muslim Arabs for American military aid, a bottomless pit,Â here.
by Hugh Fitzgerald
A governor in Anbar Province asks the Iraqi government to “demand” that the American troops come to the rescue of Sunnis in Iraq. Why should we? Why can’t the Iraqi army, police, the Shi’a militia who, all of whom amount to nearly a million men under arms, who have been supplied over the past decade with more than $25 billion in American military equipment (including top-of-the-line materiel left behind)Â show they are capable of fighting on their own? And why should Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the Emirates (the best of the lot), who have hundreds of billions in military equipmewnt, not give some of that not only to the Iraqis, if they need it, but to the Lebanese?

Clearly the US Airstrikes in Iraq-Syria Are Now WorkingÂ
This is a fraud and the people in Kobane are going to pay a price for his fecklessness.
America’s Muslim POTUS is playing for time to help the Islamic State establish itself…
During U.S. President Obama’s televised speech on his strategies to defeat the Islamic State, the president said, “Now, it will take time to eradicate a cancer like ISIL” (a reference to the Islamic State, or “IS). Now, why is that?
First, we know by “cancer” he is not referring to Islamic ideologyâ€”since he does not acknowledge that Islam has anything to do with violence and evenÂ banned knowledge of Islamic ideologyÂ from being studied by law enforcement and national security communities.
Were he referring to Islamic ideology, the need for “time” would of course be legitimate, to say the least.
No, the cancer he is referring to is the very real, tangible, and temporal Islamic State, which exists in time and space.Â Continue Reading Â»
60,000 to 100,000 Syrian KurdsÂ haveÂ fled the Kobane regionÂ in Syria into Turkey in the last three weeks.
13,000 terrified Kurds are reportedly stillÂ trapped insideÂ Kobane.
ISIS has nearly encircled Kurdish fighters in Kobane, Syria.
Â The Kurdish fighters are battling to remain control of the border crossing with Turkey. If ISIS takes the area the Kurds will be trapped inside Kobane. The US airstrikes have failed. Â BBCÂ reported:ISIS –Ready for the KillÂ (GWP)
Well, one reason is that while these fabulously rich and well-armed states have the wherewithal in money and materiel, they don’t really want to help the Shi’a regime in Iraq against the Uber-Sunnis of the Islamic State. And they want the American army to fight the Muslims who, because they are true-blue undiluted Muslims, are a danger to the families who run Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the Emirates, and whose behavior in the fleshpots of the West can be, and is seen, as not only “decadent” but also as “un-Islamic.” And that is what they dislike about the iIslamic state — not the killing of Christians and Yazidis, not the beheadings of Westerners, not the re-niqabbing of women who yesterday did not even wear a hijab, not the banning of music, not the spirit of complete and total submission to Islam in all its life-crushing nastiness, but only the threat to those ruling families and their courtiers.
This day’s news comes from Lebanon, where the demand is made that “the Americans” give more aid, beyond the $700 million in aid already given, to help a place called “Lebanon” fight the Islamic State. But why can’t such aid be requested from Saudi Arabia or Qatar or even Turkey? And if it is Hezbollah that is most worriied about the Sunnis of the Islamic State, why shouldn’t they call on, and be a burden to, Iran to supply materiel and perhaps evenÂ men?
How is it that the Muslim Arabs dare to even think they can call on the United States to sacrifice its soldiers, and to keep supplying them with weaponry, which weaponry has an amazing way of ending up in the hands of the Islamic State?
The chutzpah, the cheek, the gall of it all, even if you do divide itÂ in partes tres.
