So Mr. Obama is sending US troops to Iraq on rumors from American intelligence that an Arab dictator might have weapons of mass destruction? Am I getting this right?
Well, that was Bush's mistake -- he went and got a resolution from the UN, and permission from the US Congress, and he went on TV, and he was very straightforward about the whole thing. What a moron!
Obama's going about it just right -- he's quietly sneaking US troops into Iraq so that we can fight Syria and install yet another al Qaeda dictatorship in the Middle East. America will wake up some day and say "Wha' happen?" Now that's the way to git 'er done!
May not be reliable reports....but bears watching.
Damn, we’re back in Iraq defending these ungrateful ragheads once again..
Democrats warned us that if we voted for Romney we would see American troops involved in a mid-east war with Syria.
It turns out they were correct.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
As the Post goes on to remind us, at the end of last week, member groups of the new Syrian opposition command, the Syrian Opposition Coalition, met in Turkey, but the Nusrah Front was not invited. It is expected that the U.S. will recognize this umbrella group as the legitimate representative of Syria on Wednesday at a meeting in Morocco meanwhile, the military and tactical vanguard of the rebel forces continues to be undeniably jihadist elements such as the Nusrah group, by their advantages in organization, commitment, expertise gathered in places such as Iraq, enthusiastic funding from Gulf Sunnis, etc., a trend no level of involvement the U.S. is considering seems likely to reverse.
Obama’s got more Muslim radical pals who need American blood for their moon god.
Interesting that our nephew-in-law, a member of the military, went to Iraq a few months ago - we can write him and send Christmas presents, but we can’t address him using his military rank - I guess if we don’t actually call them military we can still claim that we have all our troops out of the country......
As has happened before, when we leave a war zone too quickly, we end up having to go back for one reason or another. Keeping the peace means keeping war away. We are an impatient people and never seem to learn, muchless against an enemy for whom eternity is a blink of the eye. No matter how hard he tries, he leaves “Bush’s war” and goes back, it’s Obama’s war now.
I hope this won’t interfere with the Obamalamadingdong’s upcoming 3-week, $40,000,000.00 Hawaiian vacation.
Huh? 8 fighter bombers... Just where did these guys pulls this from?
The current Strike Fighter compliment of Carrier Air Wing 7 (Nominal Aircraft):
VFA-83 Strike Fighter Squadron 83 Rampagers F/A-18C Hornet - 12 Aircraft
VFA-103 Strike Fighter Squadron 103 Jolly Rogers F/A-18F Super Hornet - 12 Aircraft
VFA-131 Strike Fighter Squadron 131 Wildcats F/A-18C Hornet - 12 Aircraft
VFA-143 Strike Fighter Squadron 143 Pukin Dogs F/A-18E Super Hornet - 12 Aircraft
So, at a minimum, there are 48 strike aircraft onboard. 8... I think not.
Just what could possibly go wrong? All praise nobama!
