Britain is at war: RAF Tornados in the air over Iraq with orders to strike ISIS
TRIVIA QUESTION: What do George Bush Sr, George Bush Jr, and Barack Obama all have in common?
ANSWER: They all started billion-dollar Persian Gulf Wars over oil.
Taking a page from the George Bush playbook, the Nobel Peace Prize winning president, Barack Hussein Obama, has started the Third Gulf War in Iraq and Syria in an attempt to defeat the Muslim terror group ISIS. Yesterday, England voted to enter the war, Russia has verbally confirmed their participation. Will liberals line the streets of Washington to protest this war as they did the other two?
The RAF is flying bombing missions over Iraq, the Ministry of Defense has confirmed. Two armed RAF Tornado aircraft, plus a refueling aircraft, took off from their base in Cyprus today to target Isis terrorists.
The Ministry of Defence said in a statement: ‘We can confirm that, following parliamentary approval given yesterday, RAF Tornados continue to fly over Iraq and are now ready to be used in an attack role as and when appropriate targets are identified.
‘For operational security reasons we will not be providing a running commentary on movements; we will provide an update on activity when it is appropriate to do so.’
BEIRUT — U.S.-led airstrikes targeted Syrian oil installations held by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) overnight and early Thursday, killing nearly 20 people as the militants released dozens of detainees in their de facto capital, fearing further raids, activists said.
It’s always about the oil:
Just over two weeks after U.S. President Barack Obama vowed“America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat” posed by ISIS, more than 50 countries have signed up, so far, to support the fight.
They include new entrants Belgium, Denmark and Britain, which will all send fighter jets to Iraq to assist that nation’s government and the United States in the anti-ISIS military campaign.
Even the foreign minister of Russia — which has butted heads repeatedly with Washington, including over whether the President of neighboring war-torn Syria needs to go — signaled Friday his country is ready to back Iraq in fighting terrorists, “above all the Islamic State,” which is what ISIS calls itself.
