Posted on 06/12/2014 8:35:48 AM PDT by Biggirl
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Wednesday that the administration was watching very carefully the rise of a new growing threat in the Middle East, the al-Qaeda-affiliated Sunni group calling itself the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which has already seized control of two Iraqi cities in two days and is threatening to take Baghdad as well.

No talk of a red line yet?
I would think that ESPN would not cover this sort of thing!
They like to watch, maybe throw in a Guantanamo detainee or two from time to time, you know, for the team.
Send in the clowns. Paging john f’n kohn-heinz-kerry.
With the big grin on mr. mulato’s face all he has time for now is satisfaction.
With studied detachment.
“Watching” the rise of the Sunni Islamic State...as well as ARMING IT!
It includes a large part of Syria, as well. These are the same people that Obama wanted to arm in Syria. The WSJ has a map, although they claim that the US was caught off guard by the move.
The white house needs to quit messing around and start sending out tweets so they can show those Sunnis we are serious!
They certainly are watching it. In fact, Obama is probably cheering the rise of the new caliphate.
I saw photos today of ISIL digging out the border installations between Syria and Iraq, because they have proclaimed the entire area the new trans-national caliphate and there will be no national divisions. It will all be warlords under Islam.
Followed by that famously effective strongly worded letter. Pray for guidance, times ahead will be very challenging.
Everywhere you look abroad (and at home), our problems are snowballing at a rapidly accelerating pace.
Bronco Bama has been too busy purging the leadership of the armed forces
to notice little things like this.
Look for a new Middle Eastern war to break out, if and it is not a matter of if, but when, Israel will be dragged in because of their promise to support Jordan. Israel will simply hand over to any new caliphate its REARENDS, mark my words.
He’s not available right now; still recovering from his last beating at the hands of Lavrov.
Was there a reason Obama bowed to the Saudi King....a signal to the Muslim world? Releasing the “Muslim Dream Team” in total disregard for his Nation’s safety and complete disregard to the treasure and blood spent in trying to lift oppression from Islamic Extremist.....in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama is regarded as a Muslim in the Arab world, because he was born to a Muslim father; he has also acknowledged his Muslim faith. I think we have the answer now as to Obama’s disregard of Christianity etc. and his bowing to Islam.
watching .. and watching .. and watching..
Watching? Obama’s WH is APPLAUDING the situation.
Watching...that’s code for a game of Spades in progress.
If my memory is correct, in Islam, if the father is or was Muslim, the child or children are Muslim.
You got it!
Let's not jump the gun here. First Barry needs to find some video to blame this all on. I understand that even as we speak, the administration is reviewing suspicious sections of the old movie "Lawrence of Arabia."
But if no disrespectful video can be found, then Barry should draw a red line somewhere. If that fails too, only then should he activate the mighty tweet machine.
Wasn’t “The Great ObamaNation” raised Sunni?
The new Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant show their appreciation for everything Obama has done for them.
0bama would throw his prayer rug down and his butt up in a filthy parking lot. I’ve seen muslims do it so I know it’s soebarkah endorsed.
This could be a better job op for the Caliph than a gig on MSNBC or head of the UN. Supposedly they pilfered 500 million bucks and plan to offer Baraq some LeBron James level dough if he signs on.
Music to read this thread by
Wait til the piles of heads appear in Baghdad—men, women, children. Wait til the flood of rich Iraqi come to America? Wait till the barbarism comes—and Iran seizes Iraq and a new Persian Empire rises on the point of a sword. Maybe Iran can bring peace we could not. These new fanatics will not put up with IUDs—one goes off, a whole village or neighborhood will be beheaded. These guys don’t care about human rights. Maybe they get the government they deserve?
Lol! I think you meant “IED”s. Not iud.
