Josh Lederman, Barack Obama And The War On Bush And Facts

by | 23rd, September 2014

BARACK Obama has ordered air strikes on Islamic State. Washington, France and five named Arab nations have joined the fight on the jihadists.

“I can confirm that US military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against Isil terrorists in Syria,” said Rear Admiral John Kirby, a Pentagon press secretary, in a statement. “Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time.”

The Washington Post said the Arab states helping the US are: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Oh, and Qatar is playing a “supporting role”.

The leader of the most recognised Western-backed Syrian opposition group, Hadi Bahra, is happy:

“Tonight, the international community has joined our fight against Isis in Syria. We have called for airstrikes such as those that commenced tonight with a heavy heart and deep concern, as these strikes begin in our own homeland. We insist that utmost care is taken to avoid civilian casualties.”
