Obama pretends to fight ISIS: US forces hamstrung by impossible ROE

Obama's 'rules of engagement': giving an engagement ring to a jihadi

Larry Pickering: Rules of Engagement, Obama Style

Retired US Lieutenant General David Deptula said recently, “The ultimate guidance (regarding air strikes in Iraq) rests with the black guy with his feet on the desk. Over three quarters of pilots leaving Gulf carriers are returning without dropping anything due to delays in decision-making up the chain of command in Obama’s War council.”

Sources involved in the air war against ISIS said that, “Strike missions take on average just under an hour from a pilot requesting permission to strike an ISIS target to a weapon leaving the wing so by that time the insurgents have either vanished or we are out of fuel”.

After Obama had changed the rules of engagement (ROE) in Afghanistan in 2011, immediately US combat troop deaths tripled.

Marines complained that they needed to watch through their night-vision goggles as shadowy green figures dug holes in the roadway. “On several occasions we opened fire but at some point, the order came down to ‘Stop shooting at night unless you can positively identify an insurgent’. We knew what they were doing … burying IEDs for sure, but command instructed us that, ‘You can’t be positive. They might be farmers.’ It’s ridiculous”, they said.

Also under orders from the Obama Administration, a new military handbook was published for all U.S. troops deployed to the Middle East which contained a list of “taboo conversation topics”. It included:

• “Making derogatory comments about the Taliban.”
• “Advocating women’s rights.”
• “Any criticism of paedophilia.”
• “Mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct,” or
• “Anything related to Islam itself.”

Furthermore, Obama had noted in his handbook that, “The tripling in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against US forces was due to Western ignorance of Afghan culture”. Hmmm.

Obama’s revised ROE in Iraq has meant airstrike missions have dropped from a planned 800 per day to 14, through pilots’ inability to engage targets.

The pilot must first determine that no more than 10 per cent of any target would involve civilians and in no case no more than 30 civilians must be at risk at any time. If in any doubt, permission must be sought from higher up the line of command.

The basic premise of the war is false, maoicious and malignant. Its Islam, Stupid; not IS, ISIS, al-Qaeda or any other group in the alphabet soup. Its Islam, Stupid!!!

If you would have victory, you must first destroy their Iman. If you can not or will not do that, you can not defeat Islam. Refer to page 60 of “The Quranic Concept Of War”.

In Iraq & Syria, it is necessary to whack every large aggregation of militant Muslims. When the armed columns roll, send in the A10s with canons blazing. Strafe first and never ask questions. Fight to Kill. Fight to eradicate. Bomb their barracks, staging areas, trucks, weapons, tanks, every possible target.

Engage the propaganda war. After each successful attack, ask “Where was Allah, why did he not protect you and give you victory as he promised?”. Remind them of the demon’s promises of victory. Remind tham that defeat comes from themselves as a consequence of insufficient piety. Rub it in.
