You are right, livius.
You are right.
This ISIS is a big deal.
Although, technically it was late Summer on 9/11.
The minstrel Juan Williams is now frontrunning for his beloved Mullah Baraq to send military force to Iraq.
I can think of a lot of “senior U.S. intelligence figures” I would love to see kill themselves.
The NSA is more concerned about the real threat to this nation...the Tea Party. /s
If they had spent more time looking at America’s enemies and less time chasing Obama’s domestic foes, they might have found a clue or two.
I think they rely too much on electronic means as opposed to humans on the ground.
And we are probably not getting much from the israelis anymore
None of this makes a bit of difference. Just make sure the troops show up in uniform for the Pride Parade.
Nobody ever hear of ISIS before this week. No doubt the Saudi controllers of Barack Hussein Obama decided it is time to have the Sunni Shititite war to end all wars and to give Saudi the oil of Iraq that the Saudi should have had in Gulf War 1.
Somebody set up us the bomb. Now all our base are belong to them. That somebody is some Kenyan.
All those photos of the ISIS columns of trucks etc just call out for some A10’s to do their stuff and shred them, add Puff too.
Did Obama order that release back thenn as part of his narrative of pulling out of Iraq?
I don't see any stories about this report yet.
The article is weak on the part about "how America let him go."
I wonder why?
Some military officials now believe ISIS is the single greatest terrorist threat the U.S. and its allies facestronger than the al Qaeda affiliates in Yemen or Africa and far more powerful than al Qaeda’s central leadership in Pakistan.
Heard they were part of al-Qaaaeeda, but al-Qaaaeeda kicked them out because they were too extreme.
Other senior U.S. officials say ISIS has yet to carry out any attacks directly targeting the U.S.
Nothin to worry about, folks!They’re more powerful and extreme than Hezbollah, the mullahs in Iran, the Taliban, or al-Qaaaeeda at it’s height. But they haven’t hit us yet, so we have nothin to worry about!
1) I am not like George Bush
He was a rank amateur with a horrible agenda then and today, after passively sitting in the W.H., he is still a rank amateur being outflanked by every other leader in the world.
He is the ultimate sucker who has a sign pinned on his back saying, “Kick me”.
On the run - running to Baghdad.
Obama’s apparent neglect of Iraq was really a clever strategy to demonstrate how important the US is to stability and peace.
The absence president speaker inchief.
“”Heckuva job CIA and NSA.”
They are busy ya know. Spying on Americans, building new data centers, surfing social media. Important stuff.”
Its kind of hard to keep track of your enemy’s when you spend so much time and resources trying to spy on your friends and allies, and Boss’s personal political rivals.
Argue for more defense spending not an end to Sequestration no matter how unbalanced they are.
That being said the Federal army is more than capable of carrying out its defense capabilities on but a fraction of what it has now. They just need to get out of the sodomite bunker, and get to work.
Technically all we need here is a sustained bombing campain to reduce ISI’s army to little more than a bunch of disorganization terrorist which even the Iraqi army should be able to suppress if they were inclined.
That of course is the long term problem that may make all this effort go to wast. The Iraqi army, like it seems the Iraqi people doesn’t seem to be all that inclined towards defending Iraq. I suppose that is because they don’t feel their country is worth dying for.
Their Provence or faith seems to be a completely different story on the other hand. And thus you might say the only way to really bring security to Iraq is to reduce it to 3 counties that the people there actually will fight and die for.
I agree with you in principle, as with the rest of you post. But please don't think with one glib comment you can deny the reality that Obama and Congress are destroying our military through budget cuts, and all we have to do is stop the homosexual policies and all will be well.
The homosexual/morality policies of this administration are poisonous. However, the great majority of military men and women are still patriots and good people. You must understand - Sequestration came about on top of two previous, massive cuts to Defense spending. In 2009, over $330 Billion (supposed to be spread out over ten years) was taken from Defense to pay for Obama's corrupt "Stimulus" that ended up in the pockets of Solyndra, unions, minority groups, and lawyers.
In 2012, another $487 Billion (again, supposed to be over ten years) was taken from the military.
Then came Sequestration, taking another $550 Billion.
The Tea Party types who share about as much logic as Libertarians (i.e. all will be well with humanity if we just can be left alone to our own sinful selves) LOVE any budget cut, and show zero discretion about National Security. I have news for them. Wars are Come As You Are.
If there is a real war, in Korea, Russia, the Pacific, or the Middle East, we are screwed. Our military has been decimated by budget cuts after budget cuts.
Food Stamps, Medicare, and Welfare are growing at an exponential rate, all while we cut the military by leaps and bounds.
War is coming, and I am great fear for our nation.
I will not go to war to defend the Dammed of Sodom and Gorma. I therefore only worry about God’s people among us.
As for the military situation, we have such an advantage built up over the last 200 years Obama is simply incapable of tearing it all down. Not that this is his primary objective merely a product of his insatiable need for money to fund his war upon everything that defines us at home.
The real question is not whether or not we can defend ourselves but what we are defending. Obama is waging war, but that war is not overseas, its not on the Enemy’s of freedom but rather upon our own people.
Upon historic American values of Economic and religious freedom, as well as the Constitutional foundation of our Republic. We still have such an arsenal to defend this from threats abroad, but in but a within a decade or two there really won’t be anything here left of America to defend.
There is nothing those foreign threats will do to us, that Obama is not already doing over time.
You worry about our wealth, well that is being striped from us bit by pit as Obama redistributes it among his own squandering cronies and foreigners.
You worry about our culture, well that is collapsing in both economic and religious value as Obama and his friends wage unrelenting war upon anyone with virtue. (Using this same military i might remind you.)
You worry about our land, and control of it? Well with the Southern invasion and demographic replacement with people who are decidedly foreigner and won’t even permit the flying of our own flag on our own soil in the places that they have overrun.
This is not a population that has any intention of assimilation. They are here for the land, resources, and economy, while they retain loyalty to their own country with clearly nothing but contempt for ours. For such a people It is only a matter of some time and opportunity before they will attempt to realign their captured territory’s Official status to their old government as well.
You worry about our country’s history and legacy well the very Soul of our country, and everything that has ever defined it in contrast to those foreign threats will have been destroyed and replaced with something fundamentally evil by then.
There is nothing our military will do to address the threat that is already overtaken our country, just as they have done nothing to uphold their oath and our Constitution. They are subordinate to the very force that is destroying us.
Whatever virtue, honor, integrity, or love for our country they once had is now in conflict with the new Government definition of their “duty”, and the political and practical confines of their position.
The truth is sending our men abroad to combat the progress of evil over seas will do nothing to protect us as that evil is already overtaken us at home.
Wait, the Regime said the expanded spying done by the NSA would help natl security yet they weren’t spying on al baghdadi??? A terrorist released from gitmo???
If I were to take every one of you positions, then I would say we are DONE as a nation. Now, I think we are CLOSE to that, but I won't give up. Yet. We must pray and have faith in God.
I don’t agree with Funding any of theses programs, and would indeed be inclined as you are to send the military off to do the job they were designed to do.
Sadly it doesn’t matter much due to the dire threats here at home are likely to kill us long before the threats overseas build strong enough to take us down.
I for one am most pleased that you don’t take all of my positions, someone has to hold out some hope in the hopelessness of a Post-Obama America. That is not to say I am without hope, I have great hope that one day we shall be permuted a public voice again in which to actually present our ideas and explain the utter stupidity of the current positions, before the laws of nature and Nature’s God teach this country about such evil & self-destructive ideas the hard way.
But as you so keenly noted, most of my present attention is in preparing for the worse in attempting to plant a cultural seed in the faithful lot of us from which a New Nation founded once more upon Freedom could be born from the Ashes of the one destroyed by the likes of Obama. This is the great task that occupies my mind, time, and resources.
Oh so “sKerry”...
This means defense money is shifted to attack on US money via amnesty and funding for hostile food stamp troops.
The Doofus on the Dime is not remotely in the same class as Reagan.
