As if Obama’s foreign policy isn’t confused enough, there are reports just coming out that the Ayatollah Khamenei has authorized his army to coordinate joint military operations with the US against IS/ISIS/ISIL in Iraq.
We are now allied with a nation that seeks our demise and the demise of Israel, and which causes strife and terror throughout the region. A nation allied with Validimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad.
This report comes via Israel National News. If true, what did we promise them? Perhaps Iran is buying time as they build the bomb.
Iran despises Israel and the United States.
Iranian sources in Tehran told a Persian BBC station about the alleged developments.
The Ayatollah’s General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Revolutionary Guards, will coordinate moves with the US, Iraq and Kurdish forces.
Does that mean we give up valuable intelligence?
Iran is allied with Iraq and the former Prime Minister, al-Maliki. That alliance came about after Obama completely pulled out of Iraq in 2011.
Iran actively attacks Israel and is arming terrorists in Judea and Samaria, and plans to continue supporting “the resistance” against Israel.
Mr. Obama gave another speech in Wales Friday and said he is developing a strategy to dismantle ISIS in the same weirdly lethargic manner. He said we are going to degrade, dismantle, and ultimately destroy ISIS. We’ve already been told we can’t defeat ISIS without ground troops but we won’t send any, Obama said.
It seems our ground troops could end up being the Revolutionary Guards.
Obama said we are working with our friends or allies. Which one is Iran I wonder.
Only NBC’s Brian Williams seems to think Mr. Obama is clear.
Iran has been blaming the US for creating ISIS. A report via FARS News agency Friday quoted the Ayatollah as saying:
“No doubt the Americans should be blamed for the creation of the ISIL and Takfiri terrorists and they have announced many times that they are supplying these people with training and weapons,” Boroujerdi said, addressing a forum of Students’ Islamic Association in Tehran on Monday.
“The Americans do not care for the beheading of thousands of people who are killed defenselessly (by the ISIL) and this is a crime which will be recorded in the history of humanity,” he added.
FARS also announced that the US just gave Iran the second installment of its $2.8-billion frozen assets as agreed upon in the talks between Tehran and the six major world powers in Vienna in July, the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) announced.
The USA is so weak.
