This is coolbert:
Until just about a month ago, no one other than devoted readers to the blog had heard of the Yazidi people. NOW everyone has.
American LAND BASED WARPLANES IN ADDITION TO NAVAL AVIATION NOW IN ACTION.
1. "New US strikes in Iraq include land-based bombers"
"WASHINGTON (AP) - The latest round of U.S. airstrikes in Iraq against the Islamic State extremist group includes the first reported use of land-based bombers in the military campaign."
"The U.S. military says U.S. forces conducted 14 airstrikes on Sunday — after nine strikes on Saturday."
"The U.S. says Sunday’s strikes damaged or destroyed 10 armed vehicles, seven Humvees, two armored personnel carriers and one checkpoint."
YES, even the Yazidi fight back. ISIL now subjected to multiple attacks from multiple directions!!
2. "Yazidi Militia Group Kills 24 IS Militants Near Sinjar"
"A Yazidi Militia group has clashed with Islamic State (IS) Militants near Sinjar in Northern Iraq and has killed 24 Jihadi militants."
"Yazidi gunmen have attacked IS insurgents near Sinjar resulting in the deaths of scores of extremist insurgents."
The plot thickens, the game is afoot!
