Why Barack Obama’s declaration of perpetual war against ISIS is illegal | Stop the War Coalition

THE US GOVERNMENT has destabilized the region with Bush’s Afghanistan and Iraq wars, and Obama’s killing of thousands of people with drones.

President Barack Obama escalated the drone war he has conducted for the past five and a half years by declaring his intention to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, or ISIL.

Since August 8, Obama has mounted at least 154 airstrikes in Iraq. He will send 475 additional US troops, increasing the total number in Iraq to about 1,600. Obama announced he would conduct “a systematic campaign of airstrikes” in Iraq, and possibly in Syria.
