Orders airstrikes

Military Action0 Comments

President Obama issues military airstrikes in Iraq, against ISIS. In a televised speech Obama threatened to renew U.S. military involvement and announced that U.S. military planes already had carried out airdrops of food and water, at the request of the Iraqi government, to tens of thousands of Iraqi religious minorities atop a mountain surrounded by ISIS.

Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, ‘There is no one coming to help!” Well, today, America is coming to help. We’re also consulting with other countries — and the United Nations — who have called for action to address this humanitarian crisis

Obama also noted that U.S. military action would be worry many Americans and vowed not to put American combat troops back on the ground in Iraq. He also said there is no U.S. military solution to the crisis.

As commander in chief, I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq
