US Now Bombing 4 Countries As War On ISIS Spreads To Libya

‘There’s no clear-cut moment the war is launched, it just gradually expands,’ noted one media analyst, who also noted that the mainstream media has largely ignored the expansion of the war on ISIS.

    A photo from 2011 shows buildings ravaged by fighting in Sirte, Libya. Islamic State militants have controlled the city since August 2015. The U.S. military has announced ongoing airstrikes against targets in Sirte, and other Libyan cities.

    WASHINGTON — With little fanfare and minimal media attention, the United States recently began bombing yet another country, further expanding a fight against terrorism that has no clear end in sight.

    U.S. airstrikes in Libya began on Aug. 1 with “precision air strikes against ISIL targets in Sirte, Libya,” the Pentagon announced in a press release. The airstrikes were apparently carried out at the behest of Libya’s temporary government, the Libyan Government of National Accord, appointed by the United Nations after the U.S. helped overthrow Libya’s ruler, Moammar Gadhafi, under the direction of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Special forces ground troops, deployed by the U.S. and its Western allies, are also present in Libya. On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that a “small number” of U.S. and British ground forces are present in Libya, where they are coordinating air strikes and assisting the GNA troops.


    Advertisment

    Libya is now the fourth front in the American war against Daesh (an Arabic acronym for the terrorist group commonly known in the West as ISIS or ISIL), joining bombing campaigns and ground troops in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Simultaneously, the U.S. continues arming so-called “moderate” rebels in Syria, and supplying arms and military equipment to Saudi Arabia and Qatar, further fueling unrest throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

    The expansion to Libya has been planned for months, according to The Intercept, and has no end in site. According to Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, bombing “would continue as long as [the Libyan government] is requesting them,” and the campaign has no “end point at this particular moment in time.”

    “The U.S. has long planned to spread its military campaign to Libya,” reported The Intercept’s Alex Emmons on Aug. 1. “In January, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters that the U.S. was preparing to take ‘decisive military action against ISIL’ in Libya.”

    Bombing Syria is based on the same controversial Authorization for Use of Military Force passed after the 9/11 terrorist attacks that have justified the last 15 years of genocidal Middle East warfare, including the United States’ other campaigns against Daesh.

    Emmons noted:

    “The administration has argued that the 2001 AUMF applies to the war against ISIS, even though ISIS and al Qaeda are sworn enemies. Several members of Congress, including Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., have argued that the administration should seek congressional authorization to continue its war against ISIS. Such authorizations for the conflict have failed to gain traction in a divided Congress.”

    But, he added, it’s not the first time the U.S. has ignored Congress when it comes to Libya:

    “In 2011, the U.S. continued its Libyan campaign even after Congress rejected a resolution to authorize it. The White House even delivered a report to Congress that argued that the U.S.-led bombing campaign did not count as ‘hostilities’ under the War Powers Resolution. That resolution limits unauthorized conflicts to 180 days.”

    The United States’ apparently endless “War on Terror” seems to have become so commonplace that the media hardly responds when it expands to new fronts, noted Adam H. Johnson, a media analyst from Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting.

    “While the air strikes themselves were reported by most major outlets, they were done so in a matter-of-fact way, and only graced the front pages of major American newspapers for one day,” Johnson wrote in The Nation on Aug. 5. “The New York Times didn’t even find the news important enough to give it a front-page headline, instead relegating it to a quick blurb at the far-bottom corner of the page.”

    Even alternative media seemed too distracted by the election to take much notice, Johnson added.

    Johnson argued that, under President Barack Obama, the expansion of conflict has been made to seem “entirely banal” under what he calls the “frog in boiling water” method of warfare. “There’s no clear-cut moment the war is launched, it just gradually expands, and because media are driven by Hollywood narratives, they are victims to the absence of a clear first act,” he wrote.

    He warned that, without public outcry, Obama’s wars are likely to continue to expand through the end of his presidency and beyond.

    “This is the new normal, and it’s a new normal the press codifies every time it treats Obama’s ever-expanding war as dull and barely newsworthy,” Johnson concluded.

        The greatest prerequisite in the war against ISIS (and AQ, Boko Haram, etc) is the recognition of EXACTLY who benefits from those terrorist organizations………..QUI BONO is the first question that MUST be asked in every criminal investigation.
        Yes, Al Qaeda’s claiming of 9/11 was true. Yes, ISIS’s claim to the Paris attacks was true. But, who employs those groups? Whose agenda do those terrorist monsters actually serve?

        As the aftermath of 9/11 so clearly demonstrated, the ONLY beneficiaries were those wishing to destabilize those Middle Eastern countries not already “allies” of the US and its banker masters.

        A couple of documents are very relevant to this discussion.

        First is a plan, written, in 1996, for Netanyahu’s reign as Emperor of Greater Israel. The writer is the pseudo-American Zionist fanatic, Richard Perle………

        Understand that Zionism was a creation of the Rothschild banking family in the 1880s and has been incredibly successful, thanks to the corruptibility of British and American government officials and the installation of Islam’s most corrupt creatures as rulers of the Arabian Peninsula. This Saud family installed Wahhabism and “Sharia Law” as the state religion and “legal” system of the Arabian Peninsula.
        This radical Wahhabi cult sowed the seeds for the “religious” terrorists of Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram and other ultra-right Islamic groups. It was like making Jerry Falwell king of the United States.

        • James Wherry

          There is no connection between a 20-yera old memo and current events. That said, Syria has supported Hezbi-Satan for years and declared war on Israel in 1948, and has never stopped its war. Not my problem, if Israel fights back.

          But the people BENEFITING from al-Quaeda and ISIL are Iran and Syria: they supported Zarqawi and his croneys from 2003-2011 to attack Americans and both nations let al-Quaeda use its territory to hide in and attack Americans. This is simply “blow back” and I’m laughing it up, as the Syrian government dies the death it deserves. I hope Iran gets involved and sends troops! Hez-bi-satan is dying, and that makes me SMILE.

          A TRIATOR like TAPATIO has never served in the military. If he had, perhaps he’d know the name of Col (USMC, ret.) William F. Higgins, who was kidnapped by Hezbollah, while serving as a U.N. Peace Observer in 1991, tortured and then his body was dumped into the streets.

            INFANTILE comment, you retarded wannabe child m0lester. First, a psychotic had to become PM of IsraHELL, then an equal psychotic had to rule the US (Cheney- through Dubya), THEN 9/11 had to be planned/prepared/perpetrated in order to terrify the American Sheeple. And, finally, the destruction of those countries in the Middle East had to be carried out without angering those sheeple (bankrupting them completely or killing too many of their kids).

            Al of that takes TIME – especially the indoctrination of the American Sheeple into hatred – ASK HITLER, THE 1/4 JEW – IT TOOK HIM SEVERAL YEARS OF HATE PROPAGANDA..

Washington’s plan to invade Syria was blocked by the UK Parliament and Russian diplomacy. Washington sent forces used against Gaddafi in Libya to overthrow Assad in Syria where they emerged as ISIS After a couple of years Russian government backed the Syrian Army with air power. Soon ISIS was defeated. In Iraq Washington was fighting ISIS, because ISIS was overthrowing Washington’s puppet in Iraq. In Syria Washington was supporting ISIS, characterizing ISIS as “moderates” fighting to bring democracy to Syria.

        “WSWS” – This week marks two years since President Barack Obama initiated the latest US war against Iraq and Syria, launched in the name of combating the Islamic State militia. The American president cast the new military intervention as not only a continuation of the “global war on terrorism,” but also a crusade for human rights, invoking the threat to Iraq’s Yazidi population and insisting that he could not “turn a blind eye” when religious minorities were threatened.

          Equal non-sense. You want to blame everyone who died in Iraq during that period on the USA. That’s ridiculous. Relatively few people died in the invasion. After that, there was terrorism funded by Iran and Syria. Blame them.

              Apparently you do not understand: this has nothing to do with the number of people who died in Iraq, only who philosophically is to blame. I blame the terrorists for their actions, not the U.S. I blame the Shi’ites who set about to exact revenge on the Sun’ni’s and made them willing to support ‘the Devil Itself” in the form of ISIL.

            THIS is the sort of filth that makes up Zionism and its ranks of Gentile sycophants.

            Even though Wherry was an officer in the US military, his first loyalty is obviously to Zionism. Zionists follow the Jewish “Chosen” Master-Race delusion promoted in Judaism’s Talmud.

            Wherry and his little paramour at their “wedding”. Being gay is one thing. Sexual use of someone young enough to be his child, and who would do ANYTHING to escape the disgusting poverty and violence of a culture like that in the Philippines, makes Wherry a s-xual predator.

                  1. ISIL comes out of Zarqawai’s Sun’ni insurgency from 2003-2004. It was all but dead in 2009, thanks to the USA. http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/10/how-isis-started-syria-iraq/412042/. But it had embers burning. It also had supply lines and communications lines in Syria and Iran, from the times that it was supported by them.

                  2. Paul’s claim was that we agreed to bomb the Kurds and not ISIL. There’s nothing that supports that claim because it didn’t happen. Three days ago, we bombed $11 million of ISIL’s oil tankers – ones delivering oil for sale to Assad.

                This boy-lover, Wherry, is certainly able to back up his imbecilic claim of 78 billion dollars. Can the Jews’ queer lap-dog explain WHY, only a year before the US backed the fascist coup, Washington and most of Europe were calling Poroshenko “Naz!s”???

                Wherry resides, with his boy paramour, Mario, at 6300 MILGEN RD APT 1403 COLUMBUS, GA 31907, (15 minutes from the gate of School of the Americas – the world’s largest death squad and terrorist training facility) should anyone wish to drop by to say, “HI”.

                HILARIOUS………..
                “I’m very happy about it,” James Wherry said. “Marriage is the bedrock of our society. I hope that same-sex couples can rejuvenate and revitalize marriage and give it the respect it is due.”

                I don’t really think that Wherry is qualified to “REVITALIZE MARRIAGE AND GIVE IT THE RESPECT IT DESERVES” with his perverted man-boy love predatory relationship

                James Wherry said he and Mario Jay Wherry met through gaymatchmaker.com. James Wherry proposed and flew to the Philippines to hold an engagement party with Mario Jay Wherry and his family. Mario Jay Wherry arrived in the United States at the end of May.

                Wherry and his little paramour at their “wedding”. Being gay is one thing. Sexual use of someone young enough to be his child, and who would do ANYTHING to escape the disgusting poverty and violence of a culture like that in the Philippines, makes Wherry a s-xual predator.

                  Again you show you are a Homophobe.

                  The fact the US identified the Human rights abuses of the former Ukraine leaders only means everyone saw the obvious – except an imbecile like you.

                  Defending NAZ!s again, are you?

                    POSSIBLY, IN JAMES WHERRY’S DELUSIONS, HE IS HOMOSEXUAL. HE IS, HOWEVER, A PERVERT THAT WILL USE THE YOUNGEST “LEGAL” BOY. WHERRY IS FAR TOO MUCH OF A COWARD TO RISK PRISON.

      • Sep 3, 2014 Retired Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney admits “We Helped Build ISIS”

        https://youtu.be/Z_zf7GPQqxU

        • James Wherry

          McInerney did not claim we planned ISIL or attempted to create the threat. He suggested our presence there, along with the Sun’ni/Shi’ite instability, led to ISIL’s rise.
          Iran and Syria created ISIL by funding it and permitting it and its predecessor to use their land as bases of operation against the USA in Iraq. The Shi’ites of Iraq created ISIL by exacting revenge on the Sun’ni’s.

          • No planned mentioned here, “We Helped Build ISIS”!

            Your “facts” are straight out of Hillary Clinton’s treasure trove of lies and deception. Total nonsense! Shiites are the sworn enemies of the Wahhabi ISIS!

            The various major terror organizations were founded by the Israelis, the US and Saudi Arabia as vehicles for destabilization, regime change and to maintain fear in the population (primarily of the US and Europe), making huge expenditures of lives and money “acceptable” to the sheeple.

            Both the United States government and the Saudi Arabian regime are puppets and proxies of the Criminal, Predatory Capitalist Cartel whose seat of power is……

            United Kingdom

            That cartel created Zionism, the Saudi “royals” and the Bolshevik “Revolution” as vehicles to expand its power. Bolshevism (Communism) failed. Zionism (Judeo-Fascism) has, so far, partially succeeded.

              Gee, you sound like Adolph Hitler. “There’s this evil British Jewish banking family, so we should kill all the Jews.” From “On the Jewish Question,” by Adolph Hitler in 1939:

              “For hundreds of years Germany was good enough to receive these elements, although they possessed nothing except infectious political and physical diseases. What they possess today, they have by a very large extent gained at the cost of the less astute German nation by the most reprehensible manipulations.

              “Today we are merely paying this people what it deserves. When the German nation was, thanks to the inflation instigated and carried through by Jews, deprived of the entire savings which it had accumulated in years of honest work, when the rest of the world took away the German nation’s foreign investments, when we were divested of the whole of our colonial possessions, these philanthropic considerations evidently carried little noticeable weight with democratic statesmen.” https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/hitjew.html

              Who’s angry, boy-lover? A great many of your comments are nonsensical. Given that wino’s skin of yours, alcoholism is a fairly logical conclusion.
