One hundred and fifty Americans died fighting for this city, and hundreds more were wounded. And now it has been retaken by the enemy. Commander-in-chief Obama's response: another round of golf.

“......none dare call it treason.”
we have been around I note!!!
I’ll bet we’ll be seeing the New Yawk Slimes send their ace “investigator” over there to “investigate” that it was not Al Qaeda who retook Fallujah but it was just a bunch local yokels pissed off about some YouTube clip. They gotta do what they can to defend their “messiah”.
Doesn’t matter to this CIC or his voting public. Our wonderful Military is expendable when those who cannot be bothered to work want more money. Our nation is circling the drain and still the parasites want more. Many good and patriotic Americans sacrificed for the freedom of those Iraqis. This buffoon of a CIC only cares about himself and destroying this country. Period.
Mrs. Submareener and I were at the Marine Corps Intelligence Agency during the time the Marines took back Fallujah and the rest of Al Anbar Province. So we know what al-Qaeda will do to the people who supported the US and Iraqi governments. It is not pretty. We need to pray for the people we abandoned.
Oh, I’m sure he’s “deeply saddened”, or something
I thought everything was supposed to be wonderful when we got rid of Saddam.
My son was involved in the retaking of Fallujah in 2004 (3/1 USMC) . I asked him how he felt about this as he lost a couple team members during that mission.
His comment was “ With this president nothing surprises me!”
This from a marine who reenlisted after getting his ass blown up on his 3rd tour over in that hell hole.
This was my sons reenlistment in 2007
With all that he gave This just pisses me off.
Pretty much think that sums it up
Reminds me of JFK’s response when the Berlin Wall went up just 4 months after the Bay of Pigs catastrophe.
Kennedy was sailing on a Sunday morning when word came that East Berlin was being sealed off.
He came back to shore, talked briefly with a staffer, then sailed for another hour.
On the one hand, what could he do, short of declaring war?
On the other hand, I will always believe that the Cuban Missile Crisis would never have happened if Kennedy had shown more resolve and personal strength in those two earlier crises.
I think the same thing can be said about FDR.
There is clear documentary evidence that many senior military and government officials in Japan believed that FDR was effeminate and a man of weak character who desired only public adulation.
I will never believe that the Japanese would have attacked Pearl Harbor if Teddy Roosevelt was president.
>>Commander-in-chief Obama’s response: another round of golf.<<
What the hell do you expect him to do?
He is incompetent and he three-putts every time.
We have no president, or leadership, no resolve, no foreign policy strength and no Congress. The Islamo-fascists know it. And we represent no threat — just weakness.
None of this should be a surprise.
Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.
The US House of Representatives is analogous to a Police Force - - - their main job of Check and Balance is to arrest the perp by Impeaching the perp.
The US Senate is analogous to a Jury of Peers who have the power to throw the Impeached perp off of the taxpayer gravy train, take away his residence, ban him from building a Library paid for by us, and ban him from using his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One.
Most RINO Americans want to wait, Wait, WAIT! until they control the House, the Senate and the White House.
To those weak-kneeded summer soldier patriots I say Enjoy the Obamanation that you have tolerated since January, 2009.
In similar manner, we Summer Soldier Conservatives continue to tolerate a wimpy, hand-wringing, sobbing, crybaby Speaker of the House Boehner as our sorry chief policeman.
Oh, if only my best friends across the aisle would just play nicey nice - - - is the perfect quote that fire-in-the-belly Socialist-Democrats love to hear from their doormat, cowardly, Obamacrat RINOs.
Yes indeed, as long as we WAIT for things to be PERFECT we will never attack those whose goal is to destroy the US Constitution.
Suck it up you sorry House RINOs, and replace John Benghazi Coverup Boehner with SC Rep Trey Gowdey, or SC Rep Joe Wilson.
Without a fire-in-the-belly Republican Speaker of the House, Obamacrat RINOs will continue to cave in to their best friends across the aisle, to the unbridled glee of every Democrat voter in America!
House RINOs: Pretend that you are paid by taxpayers to fight to enforce the US Constitution.
Fight or go home, House RINOs.
FIGHT or we will send you home!
Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.
Cf. Contrafactus, pg. 633 of GEB, where the "Subjunc-TV" is discussed and employed, ... "What would that last play have looked like if space were four-dimensional?"
I literally STUDIED the whole situation before we got into Iraq the second time. I came to the conclusion that it was right to go in. I read a lot about Saddam’s nuke plans and his progress with chemicals. I definitely believe / know he had WMDs. I saw connections with terrorism, that broken passenger plane they practiced with in the desert, the Oklahoma City Iraqi connection. I was freaking thorough. I ended up supporting the war.
All those guys died. And now, literally for naught -— though their bravery, patriotism, and heroism remains forever true.
We should never support wars without ENDING STRATEGIES. Not exit strategies. Turning tail and retreating is easy. ENDING STRATEGY means the enemy is not going to slap you again because his arm has been blown right off.
Obama is happy about it I’m sure.
I’m not sure if you are making fun of me or not, but it’s fine if you are, I have a good sense of humor about myself.
My point is that any CIC who allows himself to be perceived as weak or indecisive in any way ENCOURAGES an enemy to attack him, or, at least to test him.
I think that happened to both FDR and JFK.
Not at all. The idea just struck me as a classic "contrafactual", in terms of the reference I mentioned.
That 3 AM Red Phone must be ringing off the hook by now. Won’t somebody, anybody answer the call? Grandma Robinson (Michelle’s Live-in Mom) does not count.
For O, its a victory celebration.
They hit us at 911, we drove them into Pakistan and hanged Saddam, but now they've captured our palace.
Isn't maybe the first war we've lost but the first we've lost in such a dramatic fashion. If this was billiards this was a genius shot off the rail.
This one is on Bush. Instead of blathering about how Islam was “a religion of peace,” he should have been cordoning off this city and levelling it.
Obama is achieving his objective: hand the Middle East over to the terrorists...
You’ve got it.
2009: Enemy occupies the White House.
Exactly the approach I would have taken. At the time, I was uncertain if I would have allowed women and children to exit the city as it would have put more of our soldiers and marines at risk. On the other hand, if the war was executed properly from the very beginning, there would be no city after the first week - think Dresden on steroids.
What does President Jarrette have to say?
My nephew was there...in Fallujah....and then stayed for that voting day... to provide cover and protection to secure the vote.
I will remain ever proud of him and the Marines for what they did for Fallujah during those December days.
It isn’t up to us to secure their freedom any longer, if they want to keep that ‘gift’ of freedom and liberty, well then they have to do that for themselves.
So while I agree Obammy plays to much golf... (since he's not retired).... I'm not interested in more boots on the ground in Iraq. If we don't like what's going on in Fallujah... just make it cease to exist and go on down the road.
Compare preference given to hiring of gay males to guard the US diplomatic outpost in Benghazi.
I will never believe that [Ansar Al-shariah] would have attacked our Benghazi compound were promotion of the LGBT agenda not at the heart of US foreign policy. Well, OK, the fact that we're being led by a flaming Islamic sympathizer, who cannot tell the truth played a major role, too.
It seems obvious the administration knew this attack was going to happen. They cut off all assistance and allowed it to proceed.
‘Operation Phantom Fury’
Obama is actually very happy about this. In the end he gets to see Iraq taken over by his Muslim Brotherhood. That is my guess.
