This was the headline eight months ago. I saw many headlines like this back in February, so what happened, why the change in plans, why late October just before the November Presidential elections ?
FEBRUARY 29, 2016
The battle for Mosul ultimately will be the biggest U.S. operation in Iraq since the end of the last war.
That was Monday’s message from Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford, who said multinational forces have begun to cut off the city’s supply and communications lines, and to encircle and isolate Islamic State fighters with cyber and air and ground attacks. Some coalition forces are already going after ISIS inside Mosul, and the final thrust to retake it should be expected sooner than the distant future, Dunford said.
This is all from 8 months ago. So why did they set the battle to retake Mosul to 3 weeks before the US elections ?
A big reason why I smell a rat in this wag the dog war.
They gave ISIS fighters way too much time to plan counterattacks and to move their forces and set up shop in other locations and they have allowed many fighters to escape to fight another day.
Ahead of schedule ?
More like ‘Way behind schedule.’ Don’t you just love the media and their twisted spin away from the truth and any reality.
Iraq’s military has been under enormous pressure to launch the operation to retake Mosul before the end of this year as Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has repeatedly promised Mosul would be retaken in 2016. Some Iraqi officials are concerned that the military operation is being rushed before the country’s politicians have agreed on how the province will be governed after the Islamic State group is pushed out.
Enormous pressure from who ? Obama, and why now just before elections, instead of much earlier ? I don’t know, I could be wrong but it just does not add up with all the info out there in February on the ‘imminent’ attack on Mosul back then.
Truthfully, I’ve learned not to trust the ‘dog and pony show’ that the Government media puts on for the citizen sheep, and think they’re up to something, and it’s not good.
Just a guess
Islamic State has been given enough time by Jihad Hussein Obama to mount a massive counter attack, a terrorist attack in the USA just before elections, so massive that he gets his pen and phone out for dictator acts and executive orders ?
The Timing is perfect
He’s left the borders wide open for them to make their move now. The only thing he has not provided for them are maps and a free Obama phone, but I could be wrong ?
Just a guess, but who out there really trusts the narcissist and pathological liar in the White House ?
We shall see !
If America had any hope, Hillary Clinton, the lying corrupt, cover up media hacks and Obama would have been arrested a long time ago and be serving time in Federal prison
