Posted on 06/12/2014 4:09:22 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
US President Barack Obama declared on Thursday that short-term military actions will have to be taken in Iraq, following the take-over by an Al Qaeda break-off Islamist terrorist group over large portions of the country.
Reuters reported that Obama said he is looking at "all options" as far as helping the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, noting "I don't rule anything out," when asked whether the United States is considering drone strikes or any other action to stop the insurgency.
Speaking at the White House while meeting Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot, Obama said there will be "short-term immediate actions that need to be done militarily in Iraq," and that the US is prepared to take action to defend its security interests.

Active Duty ping.
Here we go again.
Obama will just stall and stall, like he always does..and DO NOTHING!
The idiot gave it all away now are we going to have a third battle for Falluja? And the dims have tne nerve to criticize Bush.
Send in the Democrat Division with their leader Howitzer Harry Reid.
At the same time he’s demanding money for some kind of anti terrorist fund so we don’t have to send troops.
The idiot never means what he says.
Please G-d don’t allow this moron to send our troops back over there - again!
CAPITAL IDIOT...and I agree.
Faculty Lounge rewind!
What about the fact that Obama’s inaction and giving up in Iraq was the partial cause of this (along with his administration’s startling and evil tacit [If not outright] support of Muslim Jihadists)??
Six years to take and secure it, coasting and ignoring for five years. 5000 allied dead and thousands of wounded.
Pissed away in ten days of inattention and absolutly clueless planning and intelligence.
Irag becomes the oil funded Jihadist state for the Sunnis and the Shia will go to war with them.
Obama and his administration are worse than incompetant.
Have John Kerry accuse them of “19th Century Behavior.” They’ll be retreating in shame by the next morning.
Yeah, Obama. Terrorists are defeated in the short term. Exactly.
Didn’t he already say he’d send in the drones...? Oh, you mean the expensive kind...? Oh, you mean the non-human kind....? Dammit, it’s hard to tell them apart! OK. He meant the kind with computer guidance systems and such. There. Harry’s safe.
Just like Korea and Task Force Smith. It’ll be over in no time.
/Dems at war.
The first test of our all new LGBT military.
Exactly. After surrendering, he thinks we can take it back “short term”???
We should never have left (remember how long we were in Germany and Japan) but since we did, there’s no way to take it back “short term.” In any case, the Iranians are already coming in.
Way to go, Bambi! Skittles and unicorns. Although personally, I believe it goes beyond that and he’s on the side of the Islamists.
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. She really doesn’t get the sense.
