Holy 'Wag the Dog' coincidence, Batman! On the day the sociopaths in the House vote to arm Syrian 'rebels' aka I-CIA-SIS, terrorism propaganda production kicks into high gear: ISIS releases Hollywood [Langley]-style propaganda video threat to the United States on Tuesday entitled 'Flames of War' --The 52-second clip resembles a Hollywood movie trailer --Is the latest in a line of well-produced videos from ISIS --Also features an eerie night-time drive past of the White House and finishes with the ominous words, 'Coming Soon' 17 Sept 2014 ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] has released a slickly produced new video warning the United States of the carnage it wants to inflict in Iraq if President Obama deploys troops to the war-torn nation as he attempts to 'degrade and ultimately destroy' the terror group. Resembling a blockbuster movie trailer, the disturbing 52-second video entitled 'Flames of War' shows militants blowing up tanks in dramatic slow motion, wounded US soldiers apparently being executed and the White House in the sights of a shaky camera. It then shows a clip of the president from before the 2011 withdrawal from Iraq saying that combat troops will never return to the Middle Eastern nation, before the video ends with a text overlay that reads, 'Flames of War -- fighting has just begun...Coming soon.'

Pentagon: US ground troops may join Iraqis in combat against Isis 16 Sept 2014 The Pentagon leadership suggested to a Senate panel on Tuesday that US ground troops may directly join Iraqi forces in combat against the Islamic State (Isis), despite US president Barack Obama's repeated public assurances against US ground combat in the latest Middle Eastern war. A day after US warplanes expanded the war south-west of Baghdad, Army General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate armed services committee that he could see himself recommending the use of some US military forces now in Iraq to embed within Iraqi and Kurdish units to take territory away from Isis.
