Turkey cooperates with Kurds in Kobani!!! U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has strategic momentum
The U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has "strategic momentum although [ISIS] has tactical momentum on several fronts" ...stark assessment came after President Obama and top military leaders from the U.S. and 21 other nations met near Washington, D.C., to discuss the campaign against the terrorist group.

The meeting was part of a series of meetings to achieve "deeper consensus on the nature of the threat posed by ISIS, integration of the air and ground campaigns, and the resources required," the official said.

Countries participating included Western countries Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom; and Middle Eastern partners Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

The official made the remarks as ISIS has made gains in the northern Syria town of Kobani and western Iraqi province of Anbar in recent weeks, challenging the U.S. narrative that its strategy of employing airstrikes and training local forces is succeeding against the terrorist group.

"The participating leaders acknowledge that although the military dimension of the campaign, alone, will not be decisive, the coalition's military effort will contribute to overall success," the official said in a statement.

"[ISIS] is an adaptive enemy. The coalition will adapt as well by leveraging all elements of power," the official continued. [link to thehill.com]

Sisi responds as ISIS flags fly next door in Libya
Friday, 10 October 2014

At the rally in Derna last Sunday, Ansar al Shariah’s commanders announced its allegiance to ISIS. This is the same group held responsible by America for the killing of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi back in 2012 and blamed by Egyptian intelligence sources for an across the border raid this past summer against an Egyptian army post resulting in the death of 22 Egyptian soldiers. Also, there are reports that a delegation of ISIS officers has travelled from Syrian HQs to eastern Libya to establish contacts and a working relationship with Ansar al-Shariah.

This is the backdrop to the sudden visit to Cairo last Wednesday of Libya’s new Prime Minister Abdallah al-Thinni upon the invitation of President Sisi. Al-Thinni was accompanied by leading members of his cabinet for meetings with both President al-Sisi and Egypt’s Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahalb who confirmed that Egyptian and Libyan security agencies were already in continuous contact and exchanging information. But the major news was that Egypt will now undertake the training of Libya’s hard pressed post- Qaddafian national army as well as its police.

US airstrikes in and around Kobane have
killed at least 500 of ISIL's best fighers
in the last week.
Kurds set a trap and turned Kobane into
one big ambush for ISIL.

U.S. MILITARY CONDUCTS AERIAL RESUPPLY IN KOBANE

U.S. military forces conducted multiple airdrops tonight in the vicinity of Kobani, Syria, to resupply Kurdish forces on the ground defending the city against ISIL. The airdrops were conducted by U.S. Air Force C-130 aircraft deployed to the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility. The aircraft delivered weapons, ammunition and medical supplies that were provided by Kurdish authorities in Iraq and intended to enable continued resistance against ISIL's attempts to overtake Kobani. All aircraft exited the airdrop zone safely.

Hey just for the record that whole navy sniper boat thing has been completely debunked as a total fantasy, like the Jessica Lynch story and the Osama Bin Laden sea burial fantasy... so you might want to quietly drop that phoney mil-prop meme!

Yup, mission accomplished. Destroy oil refineries that were close to being liberated by the Syrian Arab Army, so that Assad can't have them: check. Bomb Syrian airforce bases occupied by Isis, but close to being retaken by Syrians: check. Bomb a power plant and cause a blackout in a large city: check. Bomb grain silos: check. Kill civilians, and not hit ISIS, check. Yup the campaign against the Syrian government ahem, I mean, ISIS, is going well

"what I can see happening is that the targets they're selecting are those that have, In many cases, No military value at all to Isis or any other rebel group but really are intended to break Whatever infrastructure the Syrian government will have when the fighting is over."

An international coalition against terrorism should be established through the UN Security Council, and not in a unilateral way to achieve geopolitical goals, TASS quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as saying on Monday. “If we speak on coalitions, let’s form such a coalition, let’s adopt such a decision at the UN Security Council,” he said. “Making the fight against terrorism subordinated to a political aim of punishing these or those regimes is very wrong, abnormal and counterproductive and leads only to increasing chaos.”

Turkey to Let Iraqi Kurds Cross to Syria to Fight ISIS. Turkey will allow Iraqi Kurdish forces, known as pesh merga, to cross its border with Syria to help fight militants from the group called the Islamic State who have besieged the Syrian town of Kobani for more than a month, the Turkish foreign minister announced Monday.

The decision represents an important shift by the Turkish government, which has angered Kurdish leaders and frustrated Washington for weeks by refusing to allow fighters or weapons to cross its border in support of the Kurdish fighters defending the town. Speaking at a news conference in Ankara, the Turkish foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that his government was “helping the pesh merga cross over to Kobani.”

The announcement, along with an American decision to use military aircraft to drop ammunition and small to resupply Kobani, reflected escalating international pressure to push back Islamic State militants. As the United States-led coalition has increased its airstrikes as well as its coordination with the Kurdish fighters, who have provided targeting information, the militants have lost momentum after appearing close to overrunning the town..
