Iraq crisis: Islamists force 150,000 to flee Mosul
BBC News ^ | June 10, 2014

More than 150,000 people have been forced to flee Iraq's second city of Mosul after Islamist militants effectively took control of it.

Troops were among those fleeing as hundreds of jihadists from the ISIS group overran it and much of the surrounding province of Nineveh.

Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki responded by asking parliament to declare a state of emergency to grant him greater powers.

The US said the development showed ISIS is a threat to the entire region.

Looks like Maliki got buttfucked by Al Qaeda, who apparently didn’t receive their paychecks from Iran and decided to take a city instead.

“Hundreds” of militants. This shouldn’t have happened in Mosul, which when it was run by an American soldier/rabbi, was a peaceful place in 2003-2004.

Obama is directly responsible for this major disaster in allowing Al Qaeda and their Sunni allies to seize a lot of Iraq.

However, since Obama seems to prefer the Sunni fanatics of Iran, over the Sadr fanatic Shiites of Iraq, this was inevitable, and Obie did his best to see that it happened on his watch.

Don’t believe me, look at how Iraq has devolved into sectarian terrorism, with Al Qaeda guiding a lot of it, since Obama withdrew American troops ahead of time.

Going to happen in Afghanistan soon.

There is not end to his ability to commit TREASON.

CBS News this evening (shocker!) actually reported that terrorists who had been fighting against Assad in Syria can freely cross the border into Iraq.

I think, given the smoke and mirrors and plots worthy of a Shogun, which are commonplace in Middle Eastern politics,

that this may be an elaborate way for

1) Syrian islamists to get their hands on good weapons to use in Syria; and

2) the Kurds to take over Mosul (which they have wanted to reclaim since Sadaam effectively took it away from them).

Part of O’s plan for the revival of Islam.

Mosul had a large cache of modern weaponry given to the Iraqis so they could prevail.

Like in Libya, it has now fallen into the hands of Al Qaeda.

Think back to all that happened since 2009—has Obama ever once done anything that was not to benefit the Islamic world?

And he took office just over 7 years since 9/11/2001.

Shame on us.

we need new ( military) leadership , and a sudden , dramatic re-engagementof radical islam , worldwide. We need to prosecute that war until the only ones left are crawling out from under piles of rubble with white rags tied to sticks. Where is a leader which can lead us thus ? That’s what America and the world needs ; one that will bring about the total end of islam. Worldwide.

Another disastrous consequence of the pansy-azz, estrogen-driven Obamadullah administration. The womenz voted for the ‘articulate black man with swagger’ without regard to WHAT WOULD ACTUALLY HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF THEIR VOTE. Snap your fingers and welcome to reality, LADIES!!! You F’ed up BIG TIME.

Obama is an Islamist lover.

Do you remember the uprising that was attempted in Iran, early in his first term.

The Marxist did not say one thing and the evil MSM went along and didn't cover it.

The people of Iran wanted to move against their evil regime and we did nothing.

After Al Qaeda takes Iraq, Obama will blame Bush.

Better yet, give ISIS whatever it needs to snuff his sorry ass, and watch him rear on on his piss-soaked hind legs and flee to his Iranian master.

sand88, yes, the Iranaian uprising in ‘09 is a prime example of O’s true beliefs.

As freedom loving Americans, our governemnt should have assisted that revolution to rid Iran of the tyrannical mullahs.

Instead, O left them to rot on the vine, and the Green Revolution collapsed.

Iran is our sworn enemy since 1979.It is the major source of tstate sponsored terrorism, including using their weapons and troops directly against us in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Since O’s sympathy is with Islam, he did not act against the mullahs, which represent the triumph of the seventh century over the 20th century in Iran.

People in America cannot keep disregarding what is plainly happening in front of their noses—Obama is actively working against the interests of America and directly FOR the forces of terrorism and for Islam.

That is the Obama Doctrine.

That is the doctrine of treason, and the Democrats are now part and parcel of that treason.
