Elite U.S. Special Forces Fight For Mosul

by Ahmad Salah


The fierce battle for the city of Mosul keeps on shocking Iraq and the whole Middle East and there are no significant results. The leading role belongs to the assault of the Iraqi army and Kurdish Self-Defense Forces which still lack experience and skills to capture the city in the shortest time.
However, 500 elite commandos of the U.S. Special Forces which had been transferred this week at Mosul should give new impetus to the assault. U.S. combatants are supported by Apache and Chinook helicopters.
According to the Inside Syria Media Center, the U.S. Special Forces are located at the forefront of Iraqi and Kurdish combat formations. Military experts believe these combat conditions are atypical for the special operation forces which are aimed to carry out reconnaissance and other specific tasks.
Elite combatants in Mosul perform actually the functions of infantry soldiers resulting in inevitable great losses which are going to be covered up and silenced by the Washington officials in the usual manner.
Although the U.S. officials have repeatedly stated Mosul should be liberated from terrorists to eliminate Islamic State at all, at the same time the decision to use U.S. Special Forces looks unjustified at first glance. However, the protracted nature of the assault on the city is forcing the Pentagon to take extreme measures to complete the operation before the U.S. presidential elections. Therefore, the White House uses this situation, first of all, as a large-scale PR-campaign to support the candidate of the Democratic Party Hillary Clinton.
In this context, it becomes clear why the U.S. Government refrained from active struggle against terrorists for so long choosing an opportune moment strangely coincided with the end of the presidential elections in the United States.
Liberation of Mosul should also demonstrate to the world community the importance and crucial role of the American nation in the fight against the Islamic State.
It is even more regrettable in the light of the recent Wikileaks’ revelations which confirmed the United States and American tycoons’ role in the creation and funding of the Islamic State terrorists.

Maybe, but Americans are so sick and tired of these endless wars that the latest re-invasion of Iraq will NOT be a plus for HRC. Not that it matters much, Hillary has the important DIEBOLD/ESS voting bloc.
There’s more going on here than what we’re being told about the SO troops going to Iran. The bigger pic is probably the Pentagon is getting ready for a push into Syria, just waiting for the Killer Queen to steal the WH tomorrow and then come January, all Hell will be loosed on Syria, with help from these SO forces.

No liberation of Mosul in time to support HRC’s bid for PA1600. That hag will have plenty of wiggle room and time to start all sorts of mayhem, all by herself and on her own, provided she gets into the WH.
