Gee, do think this might be a “Red Line “?
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that China sent word to Moscow on Friday, October 2, that J-15 fighter bombers would shortly join the Russian air campaign that was launched Wednesday, September 30. Baghdad has moreover offered Moscow an air base for targeting the Islamic State now occupying large swathes of Iraqi territory, debka.com reports.
The J-15 warplanes will take off from the Chinese Liaoning-CV-16 aircraft carrier, which reached Syrian shores on September 26, according to DEBKAfile. This will be a landmark event for Beijing: its first military operation in the Middle East as well the carrier’s first taste of action in conditions of real combat.
This is the fruit of what Barack and Hillary referred to as the “Russian Reset.”
We certainly know why the Russian Foreign Minister is laughing, don’t we.
So let’s summarize the Obama/Clinton foreign policy in the Middle East.
They inherited a war in Iraq from the Evil Bush/Cheney;
In 2011 Obama & Biden both predicted that Iraq would be a lasting legacy of the Obama Administration given that the government was stable and there was relative peace;
Obama pulls the US military out of Iraq;
ISIS moves into Iraq;
Obama/Clinton decide to take out Momar Qadaffi in Libya, he ends up dead, out embassy in Benghazi is attacked by terrorists, the ambassador and three others are butchered;
Obama/Clinton knew it was a terrorist attack but blamed it on a video;
Obama says using chemical weapons in Syria by Assad would be a “Red Line;”
Assad promptly uses chemical weapons and Obama denies he ever said that would be a red line – for the US, we do nothing;
Terrorists carve up large chunks of Iraq and Syria, the Obama administration talks about it.
And don’t forget Obama/Kerry’s efforts to win another Nobel Peace Prize by cutting a deal with Iran to fund worldwide terrorism and build a nuclear weapon to finish the job Adolph Hitler started.
And now, the Russian military is in Syria, they’re bombing ISIS, and the Chinese are about to pitch in. The Obama administration will do … nothing.
Hell of a job Barack & Hillary. Hell of a job. Oh, and the 80s are calling, wonder if you’d like their foreign policy back.
