It would seem to me the US might like to have Mosul safely annexed and in the hands of their PKK terror counterparts by June. June of this year. A two year anniversary celebration has such a nice ring to it. Obama could use the successful retake/ annexing of Mosul as a real 'feel good' ending to his presidential legacy.It appears the US and company are making their move on Mosul!
Clearly tied to coincide with the move on Raqqa, Syria. Or shall we say, annexation of Raqqa? Yah, I'm good with that! Raqqa home to yet another dam. Tabqua Dam. And it's a big one.
Long time readers here know we've talked water wars, water control and everything monopolized in one nice NATO/Israeli terror state: Kurdistan aka Israel 2.0
Notice the Peshmerga spokesperson in the video?
Is that really an Iraqi helicopter? Or is it an American helicopter?
Notice the disinfo contained in this Reuter's article?
Iraqi's fleeing Mosul, the UN is preparing for their move into Syria..
"the United Nations refugee agency said on Friday, adding it is gearing up for up to 50,000 people to leave the Islamic State-held city and cross the border"Into Syria? Of all places? From the frying pan into the fire? Seems to me the UN is aiding in the forced migration of persons to a place they would never head to.
"Driving the exodus (from Mosul) appear to be reports that IS militants have stepped up executions of men and boys in Falluja since Iraqi government forces launched an offensive to re-take the city"So residents of Mosul are fleeing Mosul due to ISIS action in Falluja? That doesn't jibe with me!
They are fleeing , soon to be by the tens of thousands, because the US dropped a massive amount of leaflets announcing an impending attack!
Finally Reuters spills the beans- five paragraphs down though! Headline skimming never cuts it!
So it’s a desperate bid to escape (IS)-held Mosul," UNHCR spokeswoman Melissa Fleming said.
"The reasons for that are the pending battle to re-take it (Mosul).
The UNHCR has begun a five-day air lift to bring aid supplies from Jordan to Qamishly, where it will be loaded on trucks for distribution to Iraqi refugees and internally displaced Syrians.Who else is picking up on the theme of feather in Obama's cap?
Two weeks late to my party, but with way more readers, it's Patrick Cockburn!
Independent (Not bloody likely!) Now this obvious fact, mentioned here two weeks ago, will spread because Patrick is an accepted/believed authority by many on the 'left'- You know the humanitarian interventionist war types? (rolls eyes!)
What a legacy- kidding just being facetious again!
The US would like to recapture the city this year. Mr Karim believes that President Obama “is desperately trying to get Isis out of Mosul before the end of his term”.
