Stunning developments right now.

Iraqi prime minister al-Maliki has just called for urgent help from the UN, the EU and the Arab League.

As of right now Mosul has been taken by Isis - AQ, 28 turkish truck drivers kidnapped, Mosul Airport over-run and Isis has taken aircraft.

Well done AQ now has a fleet of military helicopters.

Militant gunmen free up to 1000 in Mosul prison break

Military has abandoned all posts in Mosul.

So does Obama still think this is going well?

Nouri Malki: we ask the international community, including the Arab League, USA and even NGOs to help us quickly.

This does not sound good.

What a travesty, and what a waste of American lives, effort, and finances to just let this happen in the end.

Maybe our President or State Dept. can remind AQ that Bin Laden is gone, and that they have been defeated.

Restore the Sultan.

It’s the only way. Turks know how to keep the Arabs down.

Far out. You just triple slammed Free Republic right in the old copyright restrictions by posting from Gannett Publications, a site which allows none of their material here, plus USA Today, a site owned by Gannett Publications

http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/ac1394dbdcca6a36cbf486633b129cd813095ac3/r=x404&c=534x401/local/-/media/USATODAY/theOval/2013/02/15/ap-obama-vacation-4_3.jpg

... and remarkably you did it by using Gannett’s and USA Today’s hotlink, virtually guaranteeing a home run for them should they decide to see who is pulling on their bandwidth.

Incredible for a Freeper who has been here as long as you.

maybe maliki shoulda signed that SOFA exempting US troops in Iraq from being tried as “war criminals” - ya think?

there’s no al Qaeda in Iraq- the liberals told us so. The Iraq occupation was a personal Bush vendetta. Halliburton. Cheney. Pipeline. Bush’s fault.

Pick a buzzword. I predict Susan Rice will choose “Bush’s fault”

You know, that may not be such a bad idea, all things considered.

No one has ever said the Ottoman Empire was perfect - well, OK, maybe a few diehard Ottomans - but they sure kept that rather rambunctious part of the world pretty mellow when they were running the show. Sure, there was the occasional insurrection.....but that was put down in short order.

If I were faced with a Hobson’s Choice regarding the Islamic world - either wackos like the Saudis running the board, or the Ottomans - I’d pick the Ottomans without batting an eye. They weren’t perfect. But they were a damned sight better than what we’re seeing now.

Terrific. I spent months running around the east side of that city. What a dump. All these stupid hajis deserve each other.
