2 US Troops Killed, More Wounded in Iraq


Stars and Stripes | 13 Aug 2017 | by Chad Garland
IRBIL, Iraq -- Two Americans were killed and five others wounded Sunday while conducting combat operations in northern Iraq, the U.S. military said.

In a statement, the U.S.-led international coalition Operation Inherent Resolve said initial reports indicated the incident was not due to contact with enemy forces; it is under investigation.

The statement did not name the slain soldiers, deferring identification to national authorities.

U.S. troops have been helping support Iraqi forces battling the Islamic State group -- "a truly evil enemy" in the words of Lt. Gen. Stephen J. Townsend, Operation Inherent Resolve commander.

"The entire counter-ISIS coalition sends our deepest condolences to these heroes' families, friends and teammates," Townsend said in a statement. "There are no words to describe the respect I have for you and sorrow I have for your loss. I hope there is some small solace in knowing their loss has meaning for our country and all the nations of the coalition."

After a nine-month battle to oust ISIS from its last urban stronghold in Mosul, Iraqi forces -- closely supported by the U.S.-led coalition -- are preparing to retake the ISIS-held town of Tal Afar west of the city.

The latest deaths bring to nine the number of Americans killed supporting Operation Inherent Resolve this year, including noncombat deaths. Nearly 50 Americans have been wounded in action since the anti-ISIS campaign began in August 2014, according to Pentagon data.

Well, reading between the lines this could be one of two things:
A) There was some sort of an accident; or
B) It was due to contact with "non-enemy" forces, i.e. some Iraqi soldier(s) (jihadist) attacked them

Good to hear information such as this.....but this Islamist movement is like a bunch of cockroaches...when the lights come on they scurry into the dark corners to hide. Then when you turn your back on them they scamper back out again and cause trouble.

Kurds report 'lots of casualties' as Iraqi army retakes Kirkuk


By Rick Moran

Iraqi Kurds report that government forces and Shia militias have attacked the Peshmerga in the northern city of Kirkuk, causing "lots of casualties." The disputed multi-ethnic city is claimed by the Kurds, but the Iraqi government can't afford to let it go. Kirkuk is a vital oil center and source of considerable revenue for the Iraqi government.

Do not EVER let these losers out of jail! I would chain them up on a 30 year old plane to Gitmo and give the pilots parachutes. :lol:
