Obama teams up with terrorists to strike other terrorists.
From Fox News.
The United States, joined by five Arab allies, launched an intense campaign of airstrikes, bombings and cruise-missile attacks against the Islamic State and another militant group in Syria Monday night – marking the first U.S. military intervention in Syria since the start of that country’s civil war in 2011.
U.S. Central Command (Centcom) said in a statement released early Tuesday that 14 Islamic State targets were hit, including the group’s fighters, training camps, headquarters and command-and-control facilities, and armed vehicles. The operation involved a combination of fighter jets, bombers, Predator drones and Tomahawk missiles launched from the Red Sea and Persian Gulf.
……The strikes “destroyed or damaged” multiple targets, according to the U.S. military, which reported “all aircraft safely exited the strike areas.”
The mission was not limited to hitting Islamic State positions. Centcom said that U.S. aircraft also struck eight targets associated with another terrorist group called the Khorasan Group, made of up Al Qaeda veterans. Those strikes, near the northwestern Syrian city of Aleppo, targeted training camps, a munitions production facility, a communication building and command-and-control facilities.
Centcom said the Khorasan Group was involved in “imminent attack plotting against the United States and Western interests.”
……U.S. officials said that the airstrikes began around 8:30 p.m. ET, and were conducted by the U.S., Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates. The first wave of strikes finished about 90 minutes later, though the operation was expected to have lasted several hours. Kirby said the military made the decision to strike early Monday.
The operation involved 47 Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles launched from the USS Arleigh Burke and USS Philippine Sea. Officials told Fox News that B-1 bombers, F-16 and F-18 fighters, and Predator drones were also used. The F-18s flew missions off the USS George H.W. Bush in the Persian Gulf.
If you want to strike at the heart of Islamic terrorism, scorch the bulk of the Middle East. Those strikes should have been leveled against the so-called “allies” who assisted with the air strikes. All of them are ass deep in Islamofascism and terrorist activity.
Although not extensively involved in global jihad, Bahrain maintains a facade of anti-extremism while using Sunni Islamists to oppress other factions within the country. The government has also cracked down on dissent in the media and anti-government demonstrations.
Al Jazeera, the network for Islamofascist propaganda, is based in Qatar.
Qatar is dominated by Wahhabist extremists, who are sympathetic to terrorist groups.
Qatar has emerged as the world’s chief sponsor of Sunni terrorism, it smuggles weapons into Libya and Syria with the complicity of the Obama Administration, and it was also a chief backer of Morsi in Egypt.
Qatar is among the chief financial sponsors of international terrorism.
Saudi Arabia is a backwards, Islamofascist, terrorist breeding, oppressive, misogynist theocracy.
Its major export is jihad.
They are the chief financial backers of world wide terrorist networks.
Sends double agents to commit insider attacks against American personnel in Afghanistan.
Islamic terrorism and extremism are deeply rooted in Jordan, to include the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Action Front (IAF) and Salafi jihadism. As with other Arab countries, this permeates the government, schools, and everyday life.
The United Arab Emirates are heavily involved in Islamic terrorism.
Every Islamic cesspool in the Middle East, North Africa, and Indonesia, funds, trains, supports, breeds, and indoctrinates muzzie jihadists. There are no “Arab allies”. All of them are culpable for terrorism.
This pathetic attempt to salvage some PR by lobbing a few missiles at the JV team, is too little, too late.
