Obama Orders For Fresh Bombing Of Iraq


United States President, Barrack Obama, has ordered back the use of US warplanes over Iraqi skies, to combat what he tagged as genocide in the Middle Eastern nation.
It’s been reported that the warplanes will be used to drop necessary food and water to hungry Yazidi religious people, who number thousands and are being besieged by Sunni extremist fighters (Islamic State, IS).
Due to the crisis, tens of thousands of Iraqi Christians have fled and with the international committee being mute, USA has decided to advance.
Obama told the US military to attack and the advancing Islamic State fighters and to protect the lives of US officials in the troubled country.
Obama said: “We plan to stand vigilant and take action if they threaten our facilities anywhere in Iraq, including the consulate in Arbil and embassy in Baghdad.
“We can act, carefully and responsibly to prevent a potential act of genocide. That’s what we’re doing on that mountain.
"I therefore authorized targeted air strikes if necessary to help forces in Iraq as they fight to break the siege and protect the civilians trapped there,” he added.
Despite this recent declaration, Obama wants to assure Americans that he — the president who withdrew US forces from Iraq — was not about to get “dragged into fighting another war.
“American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq because there is no American military solution to the larger crisis in Iraq,” he said.
Obama was the one who started the pull out of US troops from Iraq, after former president George Bush started a war against the Saddam Hussein-led country back in 2003.
Nigeria has been having an on-going conflict with terror sect, Boko Haram, but the US is still to assist in bombing missions, leaving it to the Nigerian Army, who are yet to register a major victory against the Shekau-led sect since 2009 and to recapture some of the towns and villages.
