Obama going to war with ISIS


Obama is asking Congress for approval to go to war against ISIS. This is the second time after the fabricated invasion of Iraq by George Bush that the USA would be put on a war footing. I must say that this ISIS is more real than the Saddam Hussein’s WMD thing. So we can see the world’s Number One super power going to take on an insurgency that wants to be world Number One as well. Who will win? On paper the Americans could erase the ISIS by carpet bombing like they did in Vietnam and Laos. So, what is the problem?
 

The problem is that the Americans would not do it. They just want a war outside of the US, a war they can be manage from a distance and get everyone involved for a long long time. And the American war industry will be laughing all the way to the banks. War is very important to the Americans. They must always created tensions all over the world, get the people agitated and raise the tension, limited warfare, and buy more arms.
Would this fight against the ISIS be different? Would the Americans go in, bash around and then withdraw, leaving a big mess behind but not solving anything? Syria, watch it, it is coming. Can the Americans clean up the ISIS insurgents given their war arsenal and the number of troops available? Or is this just another operation to get the rest of the world on an arms buying spree?
 

If the Americans cannot deal with ISIS, what else would it be able to do? I think a better solution will be to invite the Japanese to do the cleaning job as Abe is so eager to do so. Then Congress need not have to send any American boys and girls to the makers. Congress should just tell Obama to support the Japanese to send in the Japanese Imperial troops to avenge the beheading of two Japanese. It would be cleaner, faster and cheaper, and knowing the expertise of the Japanese, they would do a good job at beheading the ISIS fighters. Would that not be nice?
 

Or would it not lead to more deals for the American war merchants? That is not a problem surely. The Americans can offer all the arms they want to expend and the Japanese contribute the troops. Just a humble win win suggestion.
 

Howdy Obama? The American peasant pa and ma would love you for not sending their children to another war. And the war merchants too would be grateful for the money rolling in for their weapons sold. There is no need to bring in the expired Empire of Britain or Nato forces. You will have a very willing Japanese Imperial Army to do the job and the war merchants happily offering all their weapons for sale. And all the American boys and girls would be safe at home watching telly.

I thought Obama already ask PAP to help fight ISIS? And PAP said OK? Read this:

So who are u to say it is wrong for Obama to go to war with ISIS, when even your PAP govt also support Obama? And how can PAP support something which is wrong, u tell me lah?

And by the way, in case u dunno, PAP is also a good customer of the American war industry. That's why our defence budget is very big, about US$10B for 2014, or about 3.3% of GDP.

Eh 12:41, What are you smoking? Where did RB said Obama is wrong to go to war? Taking drug is a serious offence here.

Although RB did not explicitly said Obama is wrong to go to war, but he implied by asking: "Can the Americans clean up the ISIS insurgents given their war arsenal and the number of troops available?"

That means RB is having doubts about Obama going to war with ISIS. And having doubts means something is not quite OK, or maybe even wrong. So are u OK with that?

ISIS is no match to Obama.

He could settle ISIS much faster
than Bush Junior settled Saddam
Hussein.
Obama does not need Japan against
ISIS, he will make use of the Japs sgainst China.

2:16, your reading of RB's comment very clever leh. I read RB asked whether America can do the job and you read going to war is not ok. Why you so clever?

Luckily the Indians are sensible not to be used by the Americans to confront China. Now the two poodles, Japan and Philippines are the ones taking up the appointment by the Americans to split hairs with the Chinese, while they prod their big stick from behind. I am not too sure whether the Vietnamese will join the poodles' brigade, but it looks like a possibility.

So, the Americans really do not need to go to war, just sit around, poke fire and sell their obsolete weapons to the warring sides. After all, the Americans are really peace loving mongers.

It is always a win win situation for the yanks.

ISIS sure win one because it is on the rise and many people from all over the whole world are joining them to fight for their cause.

And it is going to be a long-drawn political as well as a ideological war. It is going to be protracted.

And the war may be fought within the US territory also. It won't be just in the Middle East.

If Japan is not careful. The war may reach Japan's soil too.

SAF should send some of its scholars to help USA fight ISIS in order for them to gain much much needed field experiences.

The first one should go is the Kee Chiu. He talks so much but I still don't know he can do anything or not. Like that where got credibility one.

LHL should send himself there also. Last time become BG had not real experience. Now should seize this opportunity to go and gain some field experience mah.

Our beloved President Tony should also send his son who was given the privilege to defer his NS for 12 long years and subsequently hiding in a research unit to do research and called it doing NS. Now he should go there to fight the ISIS and come back to show us that he is really sincere about serving NS lah.

Also all the white horses should go first mah. Don't just be book-worms and paper generals without real battlefield experiences.

Right or wrong?

ISIS may just make a courtesy call at Sin for all You know. And our generals will prove to You that the Citations they received during training overseas were no fluke.

I believe our military and police commanders will get their chances to prove their mettles.

White horses will just stand around, pretend to give orders, and take all the credit afterwards.

Does the cable car incident ring a bell?

I thought the whole world already knows that american created is and alquada. Looks like 2% of the population in this world controlling the rest 98% of the population - body, mind and soul. The 98% has to blindly follow what the 2% instructs them including killing each other so the 2% can get even richer.
