Second Iraqi air strike in Syria against ISIS

The Iraqi air force went into action in Syria Sunday, targeting ISIS command posts and bases in the eastern Syrian region of Deir ez-Zour.. This was the second time the Iraqi air force had been in action in Syria.
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that these attacks were coordinated through a shared war room set in up Baghdad by Russia, Iran, Syria and Iraq. The US war room in Baghdad was shut down last month.

    So – what for did the USA go into Iraq / spending billions of dollars / losing men and women of their armed forces?
    To hand it all over to Iran and Russia?
    Are you crazy?

      Except Russia, all those people want a small piece of Syria, and this is Ok.
      Once they also agree Gaza is history and has to go, we have this global nice solution for most of the troubled Middle Est problems.

      You have a very good point there and I agree. In hindsight it was bad that we went in there in the first place because Sadam held Iran in check. Now may be we are leaving all the chaos to the Ruskies which is good.

        Russians may be more effective in Iraq than Americans, because they don’t have to paint it in beautiful “democracy” BS colors.

    No war the US military starts makes sense, and it always ends in disaster.

    The ISholes can fight like devils against anything on the ground, but they are powerless against airstrikes. That must terrify them.
