Is he an idiot or was this his plan?

Did we buy all those new Toyota trucks for them too? The only thing these people can make is war.

Well, you’re probably right. But he’s still an idiot. Only an idiot would think Marxism is preferable to freedom.

Obama will do what he always does:
Wait until it's too late and then make the wrong move.

The Leftists should send someone out to the desert and talk to the muslims about their feeeelings. If they do a dialog and find out why they are angry, maybe give them some milk and cookies, surely they will turn around and go home. Much in the same way an armed burglar will leave your home if you just ask him to. /s

Depressing but maybe now Maliki will accept a Shia-Sunni-Kurd federalism for Iraq.

Shia should be able to hold the capital but they need to worry about a southern flanking maneuver east from Najaf which would cut Baghdad’s MSRs.

American blood spilled in vain. Which commander-in-chief tells the enemy beforehand when it plans to lay down arms? What curse has befallen this nation that we twice elected a community organizer as President? Republicans should be screaming bloody murder demanding the impeachment of this President. Instead, they are running scared of the media.

Great time to have 10,000 US troops in Afghanistan instead of Baghdad.

Like playing chess with a pigeon. He will/is walking around the chess board knocking over pieces, pooping on the board and claiming he won. In the meantime, the pawns are taking his queens jewels.

The Media and the Democrat Party deserve responsibility for the debacle which is Obama.

Many US soldiers, and many more Iraqis, died, and Obama is throwing it all away.

The Government can’t pick and choose which laws to enforce, and which to in your face break.

Our Government doesn’t give a hoot in Hell what we think.

Closing in on Baghdad...

Shouldn’t Baghdad Barry be Telling Lies on the TV Screen about now?

I know folks who fought this, who lost friends/relatives who are sick over this. Jim, they’re questioning the shed blood. I know why their minds go there, but the truth is that their loved ones were answering their nation’s call, doing their duty, being loyal, serving with integrity. We can’t let them not think on their honorable service.

I absolutely despise this administration.

I am stunned by how little coverage this is getting. It makes me sick to my stomach to think how we lost some 4,500 soldiers (with many more with disabling injuries) only, thanks to Obama and his retreat, to turn it over to al Qaeda.

I saw that ISIL is up in the territory it has already conquered using a back-hoe to dig out the border between Syria and Iraq, because the “new caliphate” is transnational.

Obviously, it includes the White House.

Yep. You can count on Obozo to do the thing that is least in the interest of the US and most in his own interest.

Biden: I am very optimistic about Iraq. I think it’s gonna be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re gonna see 90,000 troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re gonna see a stable Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government…I’ve been impressed by how they’ve been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”

That was February 11, 2010

I hope the Iraqis can hold them off until November. It would be a nice visual heading into the election to see Americans evacuating from the roof of the embassy.

No, he’s not — he knows exactly what he is doing.

Didn’t he say that he was going to bring change?

As always, Americans have short memories.

Ever considered that he is not working for us, but for them?

Wonder if they could have fought back against the current crop of invaders if we had not taken their guns?

http://www.nytimes.com/2003/05/21/world/aftereffects-the-military-allies-to-begin-seizing-weapons-from-most-iraqis.html

By MICHAEL R. GORDON
Published: May 21, 2003

Iraqi citizens will be required to turn over automatic weapons and heavy weapons under a proclamation that allied authorities plan to issue this week, allied officials said today.

The aim of the proclamation is to help stabilize Iraq by confiscating the huge supply of AK-47’s, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons that are used by criminal gangs, paramilitary groups and remnants of the Saddam Hussein government.

Iraqis who refuse to comply with the edict will be subject to arrest. Only Iraqis authorized to use military-type weapons because of their police or military duties will be exempt.

‘’We are in the final stages of formulating a weapons policy to put rules on who can and cannot possess a weapon,’’ Lt. Gen. David D. McKiernan, the chief allied land commander said in an interview. ‘’We want to get explosives and AK’s out of the wrong hands.’’

The A-10 has been on the chopping AF block for years but a few intelligent politicians won’t let them retire the A-10. The Air Force wants only sexy, $200 million airplanes, not ugly $10 million airplanes.

I grieve for one of my wife’s closest friends who lost her son in Iraq. For what? It was a noble cause at the time, but the usurper has thrown it all away. I am sick at what this bastard has done to the parents and loved ones of all the men and women who gave their lives for Iraqi freedom.
