Washington’s Two Air Wars: With Iran in Iraq, With Saudis (Against Iran) in Yemen

Juan Cole

The United States is now involved in two air wars in the Middle East, not to mention more widespread drone actions.

US fighter jets have, at the request of the Iraqi government of Haydar al-Abadi, begun bombing Daesh (ISIS, ISIL) positions in Tikrit, according to al-Hayat (Life).

US aircraft can precisely target Daesh units . . . .

Ah, yes. The vaunted "precision" of US bombs. No reason to fear collateral damage there.

Cole can be a real tool.

As usual with Juan Cole;s commentary, there is a complete lack of insight into the overall context. Tactical drivel and fealty to the Obama variety of the War Party rules for him. Juan, how is that humanitarian NATO intervention worked out in Libya BTW? I used to take him seriously but just can't anymore.
