Iraq turns to crap

While President Obama was busy working on his left hook on the golf courses of Hawaii, Islamic militants were taking control Of several cities in Iraq. John F’ing Kerry says the US will help Iraq as long as no troops are needed in this stupid war.

The kook conspiracy people say Saudi Arabia is actually behind this and intend to take control of Iraq’s oil fields. Backing up that crazy theory is Iran is offering help to Iraq. That tunnel between Iran and Kurdistan may get some use soon. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who knows what I’m referring to.

    I believe this tunnel may have a small design issue
    http://kurdistan-geology.com/?p=856

    The tunnel is about a mile and a half long and I see no evidence of ventilation in the design. Long tunnels either need big fans or vertical exhaust shafts if the fumes are significant. Ventilation in long railroad tunnels is a major safety issue. Run a military convoy through the tunnel and the guys in the back are going to fall asleep and not wake up.

    Agree on the vents needed in long tunnels. I saw pics on VT last night and this morning on CBS news. At least the Iraqi army has ‘top quality’ military equipment.
    They were running a Bradley fighting vehicle at top speed by the camera. Saw a Abram tank or two.
    Saw those special trucks that are built specifically against IED’s, called Mine Resistant Protected’ MaxxPro MRAP vehicles. Pentagon is giving those trucks to the Po Po here in the US.
    So the Iraqi’s will run them till they break, and leave it on the side of the road.
    Way to go Obo & McCain, your Al-Quiada boys are taking over. Your support to them is working. Go over and have another pic made with them McCain in their new gained territory in Iraq, you big dork.

      and in the ‘same story, different war’ category:

      I have neighbors who are air force pilots. One of the current rotations that they and some of their friends are serving is … training the “Afghani air force”. (no, I am not making this up).
      I am told it is about the crappiest, most boring job that a pilot can have. The Afghani’s (most of which have never driven a car) have no interest in flying planes. But we have to pretend to teach them to fly all the billions of dollars worth of C-130’s and other military aircraft that the American people have gifted them.

      You would think we would at least teach them to fly crop dusters so they could spray poison on all the poppy fields in Afghanistan. It makes one wonder who is making money in the heroin trade when the U.S. (a country fighting the ‘war on drugs’) invades the world’s leading heroin producer but then does nothing to cut off the source of the product.

    Imagine if there is a crash inside the tunnel that causes a fire. A state of the art tunnel has a separate service tunnel next to it (or between two parallel tunnels) that is pressurized with closed doors. That makes it so that the smoke doesn’t go into the pedestrian tunnel where you can walk to safety if you can get to the door before being overcome by the smoke.

    Other than the first 20 feet of the tunnel, there is also no clue how they actually dug this tunnel. Slave labor and teaspoons seems like one possibility.

      Isn’t it cheaper to just put a door on each end of the tunnel? When there is a fire, close the doors so that flame goes out like a candle? … that would be the Soviet way. 😉

    There are still about 8,000 ‘troops plus another 5,000 ‘contractors’ providing security for the US Embassy in Baghdad. It is the largest US Embassy in the world covering 1.5 square miles. There was a $13 billion dollar arms deal with Iraq in 2011, don’t know if they ‘sold’ more since then. Anyway back to the US Embassy, the State Department (read Hillary) wanted a $6.1 billion annual budget to run the embassy in 2012, but I have not bothered to verify if that was approved.

    Back in 2009 I corresponded briefly with a private contractor who said the projects they were building near Erbil (Kurdish area) were all ‘defensive’ in nature. He added this statement that I have co-opted and use regularly, “Something Big is Coming”.

    So, expect more upheaval in the days ahead because the main goal of the criminal class is to promote hatred, chaos, corruption, and of course, endless war in the ME. One of the biggest missions of the State Department is to provide lots and lots of training to the Iraqi police forces. That type of training is probably increasing here in America’s largest cities.

    Something Big is Coming.

    • Art Stone says:

      Saddam Hussein (prior to the first gulf war) was building the world’s biggest mosque in Baghdad. I wonder if we ended up paying to finish it or whether we just made it into our embassy.

      To be that big, there must be a lot of visa applications to process.

      Just imagine what we probably built in the desert by the Syrian border out of sight (and hidden from Google Earth)

        Look out!
        he lived in the spiderhole

        was he strong?
        listen bud
        he had got radioactive blood
        his life hung from a thread
        take a look overhead
        hear that?
        there goes the spiderhole

    • Parrott says:

      Yeah, it probably is Nidster.
      Iraq Anbar province and southern Syria will join up and make Al-Quida jihad central state area or Palestine.
      They will change the name of the Fallujah airport to
      McCain-Goat International airport.
      Big change,

    The Kurds and Iranians routinely lob artillery barrages at each other across their present borders. Can the Kurds always count on the Eternal Fire of Baba Gurgur, in Kirkuk? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/7a/P3110004.jpg/800px-P3110004.jpg
