Iraq in Chaos: An Excuse to Escalate?

by | Jun 11, 2015

President Obama has admitted this week that he has no strategy for Iraq and Syria. But in the absence of a strategy the old familiar tactics are still at play: escalate, escalate, escalate. More US “trainers” to Iraq to perform a miracle: create an Iraqi army that can defeat ISIS; more US weapons on the way (because the last batch ended up in the hands of ISIS); and, to top it off, a new US military base to be built in Iraq’s Anbar Province. All to the delight of the military-industrial complex who is really running the show. Tune in to the Ron Paul Liberty Report for more on the chaos:
