Send in the Democrat Division with their leader Nuke ‘Em Nancy Pelosi.
Just like the fall of Vietnam. Orcestrated by Treasonous Democrats Once again. Withhold weapons, withhold support, let em die. Democrats never change. Guess 0 is ticked he couldn’t keep the muslim brotherhood in charge of Egypt. Couldn’t get al-quda to take over Syira. 0 will have to settle for taking over Iraq and showing his contempt for the sacrifices of our armed forces.
Why can’t Iraq strike them themselves? I know their military has a habit of cutting and run...but even so...they still can fight on the ground. Don’t they have any fighter planes?
Someone should take the “Like a Boss” bumper sticker and substitute the words “When a pussy is in the White House people die”
Someone explain why we went there. And please dont mention 9/11 — no connection at all.
American addiction to oil and investment in the Middle East.
You’re unaware of the Saudi connection to recent American presidents? Never heard of the Iraq invasion of Kuwait and the danger of Iraqi invasion of Saudi Arabia?
You have a loooong wait Nuri.
No. They bought a few F-16s though...but haven’t got them yet. We destroyed all their other planes during the two Gulf Wars.
I saw this, and it’s outrageous. Hussein Obama cannot hide behind the excuse that “the Iraqi government doesn’t want us there.” They have clearly asked for our support.
I’m not saying we put boots on the ground. Some targeted drone strikes or air strikes though would give the Iraqi Army needed cover, and the cost of it would just be a rounding error in the defense budget.
Sorry I’m actually pretty pissed about this. I’m going to write a letter to my congressman about this.
Thanks for posting. Very active twitter on Iraq here...
ISIS is moving faster than coalition forces. WOW!
The damned Iraqis should be able to handle these insurgents. Instead, they're running like hell with their tails between their legs.
We spend YEARS training and equipping them. They should be able to fight. An insurgent group should'be be able to topple two cities almost unopposed.
We as Americans can't want a modern and successful Iraq more than the Iraqis do.
All you people who died and suffered fight for Iraq.
You did it all for nothing.
When the war on terror started, the big Democrat talking point was that it would be "another Vietnam". Well they have made it so. They have done it before, and would rather throw a nation to the wolves than be wrong.
Active duty ping.
Didn’t we already do this?
The way events are unfolding is reminiscent of Vietnam in March and April 1975 and Cuba in mid-December December 1958.
All of the sudden, Fidel’s forces came out of the mountains and started taking over Cuban cities.
Batista’s forces were on the run and on New Year’s Day 1959 the Communists (who the “New York Times” and Communist sympathizer reporter Herbert Matthews chose to portray as freedom fighter led by a “George Washington” named Fidel Castro) rolled into Havana.
Ever wonder why EVERY decision that he makes is detrimental to the USA? Seems to me that if he was just honestly stupid, at least a few of his choices would actually be beneficial- but can anyone point to any beneficial actions of BHO?
I would like to also refer you to this reply-
Until we ALL understand that the bastard that we need to fight is an illegal alien from Kenya with a photo-shopped birth certificate, nothing will change. I'm not sad, I'm pissed.
I weep for our country and our allies.
Flying against ISIS in Iraq, and for them in Syria,,,, Aint it grand?
The coming wave of Iraqi refugees is going to give us more Islam, more "home-grown" terror, and more Democrats.
I think doing nothing will just make the whole middle east realize they can do whatever they want. I'm not for boots on the ground, but do SOMETHING.Show some leadership! Before you now it we'll be standing alone against a new Muslim Empire. And there will be nothing we can do about it.
Have we even heard from Bozo yet or is he off golfing and collecting donations while the world burns?
Since I am a Vietnam vet, that has always left a bad taste in my mouth.
I doubt he even knows what’s going on at this point.
Bet the WH wakes up now....
BREAKING: ISIL SEIZES BAIJI REFINERY FROM IRAQ FORCES: POLICE SAY
Biggest oil refinery in Iraq overrun by ISIS now, wanna bet all the oil nations sit up and take notice now, this is an very big development.
I asked for a mini-bike when I was 10. Still don’t have one.
Iraq refused to allow Americans to stay and so we left.
Let them fall and get beheaded by the moosie crazies and to hell with em all.
Thanks for referring me to that article. Excellent analysis of what is going on. Hope something similar gets worked into a speech in 2016, if we make it.
So am I. Used to be hyperbole, not longer.
something like 70% of the military deaths since the war was started are on Obama’s watch. Yet does the media care? Where are the death tickers? Where are the “Endless/End This War” and “War is not the Answer” bumper stickers?
We had troops in Japan and Europe for many decades after WW2. Iraq is a hugely important strategic ally in that region and we are giving it away after all that long fought work to get it stable again. This is disgusting.
Exactly, the Saudis have been playing the US for suckers for the past half century. The US military has been the foreign legion of the House of Saud for decades doing their bidding and keeping the Saudis’ arch enemies the Shiite Iranians at bay.
Even as they were doing this and the US was protecting their oil fields the Saudis were still sending the 911 hijackers out to attack America.
Now the US is backing the Saudis’ allies in Syria against Assad and at the same time funding the same forces who are today carving out a new Sunni nation out of the shell of Syria and Iraq. The US funds the Sunnis in Syria and opposes them in Iraq and they’re precisely the same bunch of people!
It’s the most insane schizophrenic foreign policy I have ever seen. Iran hasn’t been a threat to the US in a quarter of a century, Iran is a far more educated and tolerant society than Saudi Arabia ever could be. The Iranian population is much more favorably disposed toward the West than the Saudis are, Iran used to be the US’ best friend in the region.
But because the US government and political elite is in the pocket of the Saudi oil sheiks the US has steadfastly refused to reconcile with Iran.
Nixon could make peace with China, Reagan could make peace with the Soviet Union but apparently it’s impossible to make peace with Iran and instead the US kisses the ass of the Saudis who hate everything about America.
I simply cannot make head nor tail of this policy.
If ISIS gets control of Iraq, it’ll make Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge look like the Dalai Lama by comparison. Every Christian and Jew currently in that region had better exit now.
Except for the non-muslims who never asked for any of this.
Tis the season of treason...
EVERYTHING that rat has done was designed to weaken our economy, our defenses and to degrade our moral principles...
The people have lost all control of our government... The ONLY thing left to us is civil disobedience.. We can start by taking in hand all those officers whose job it is to enforce laws that are social in nature..(no victim)..
We must take back our schools as quickly as possible. The commies have a stranglehold on our youth and THEY are our future...
What we truly and desperately need is a "PATROIT" to come forward... Someone who loves GOD and America...Someone who is willing to take out the garbage..to handle the filth that is the progressive left..
But...that's only my opinion... :)
I have been looking for a reason NOT to believe that since the summer of 2008 and have not found one yet. Can you point out anything that would actually cast DOUBT on your theory?
I still try to imagine that he’s just of his father, the Devil, doing Satan’s will subconsciously.
Instead, Herr OboZo plans to send a couple of B1 Bombers to the UK to threaten Putin.
I think you’re correct by the strictest definition of care, but the truth is, Americans being murdered by Muslims fills him with deep satisfaction. The fact that he’s responsible fills him with pride.
You are exactly right.
HE sits on his hands while the world burns...and us along with it in the end.
God, DAMN him. [that is a prayer, not a curse]
The only reason the name was not all the tipoff needed is that decades had been spent creating the meme of political correctness and it has been so successfful that now anyone who admits to seeing the obvious is condemned as a racist, homophobe, whatever. The emperor actually is naked but no one is considered pure in heart now so anyone who sees it must be evil. The world is upside down and bass ackwards.
Of course they will do that, after all they have been successful at projecting the GOP as the party of racism which is like the pot calling the milk black.
And the left needs their collective nose rubbed in it, and good.
