Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 28, 2014

Armed U.S. drones are flying over Iraq to protect American military advisers on the ground, officials told BBC News. Their role is "force protection" of U.S. assessment teams helping Iraqi security forces repel militants now running large parts of the country. They are supporting other manned and unmanned aircraft making 30-40 surveillance missions each day.

Ya gotta love those drones. Whole new force projection concept and way cheaper than a carrier battle group.

Mission creep. We have gone from not taking sides to supporting one side with lethal force.

You are all fools!

Standard USA military establishment MO from Korea to Vietnam to today. Deploy advisers and then creep/expand the mission with air, sea, etc support to protect them.

Our corrupt corporate owned government can't stand focusing on repairing the USA economy and expanding opportunities for our citizen and the middle class without frittering away lives on other countries. We break them and then a few get very rich in the process of fixing them.
