(IRBIL, IRAQ) We’re back in action in the Middle East.
Fortunately, President Obama says our focus this time around is humanitarian support for the Iraqi people and protecting American personnel already serving in the war torn country.
President Obama said in a Press Conference Saturday, “…Wherever and whenever US personnel and facilities are threatened, it’s my obligation, my responsibility, as commander in chief to make sure that they’re protected.”
The mission to protect the innocent from terrorist group, ISIS, has been a success, so far.
American airdrops have successfully delivered food and water to the people who need it, and U.S. Central Command says our airstrikes against ISIS targets successfully destroyed some of the groups equipment, artillery and convoys, in Northern Iraq.
Unfortunately, there’s no time table for when the airstrikes in Iraq will end, according to the President.
So, hopefully our support from the sky is all it will take and we’re able to keep American soldiers out of harm’s way.
