Skip to comments.NANCY PELOSI: IRAQ IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY
Posted on 06/12/2014 8:11:16 PM PDT by kingattax
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke about the wave of violence hitting Iraq from Islamic militants, asserting that the United States does not have a responsibility to assist the country with military action.
I dont think this is our responsibility, but I do think we were irresponsible for going into Iraq for a variety of other reasons, she told reporters on Capitol Hill on Thursday.
Pelosi called the violence troubling but asserted that there was no American appetite for further military action in the country

More craziness from XSpeaker. Minimal action taken from the very beginning would have spared all of this from cascading.
I wondered when old Bondo-puss would stick her oar in.
For liberals it’s not our responsibility until we get nuked then they blame Republicans.
No worries! 0 has (repeatedly) said “Osama is dead and Al Qaeda is decimated”.
we should all sleep much better then
Nancy, you’re in no position to assert America’s responsibilities.
Nothing in the Constitution supports your anti-American agenda.
She pines for the good old days of Saddam and his boys?
Didn’t she vote to go into Iraq?
Do think it IS our responsibility? You want America to invade again? And stay there forever?
How much will that cost, and where will the money come from?
Paint these asses as pro-terror and pro-Saddam. Rinse and repeat.
We’re learning what a second term of Carter would have been like in the 80s - a strengthening power in Moscow and mass chaos in the middle east.
Actually Nancy, Iraq is your responsibility and Harry Reid’s and President Obama’s as too.
You three took a won war that was winding down and made such a mess of things you have reversed all of our gains and actually made the situation worse than it was in the beginning.
If there were WMDs in Iraq, they could not have worse damage to the rest of the world than you three have done.
When Saddam was in power, Iraq’s Islamists were suppressed (brutally), and Iraq was a foe of Iran. After we toppled Saddam, the Islamists were free to burn and pillage - more so than ever now, but they’ve been doing so for a decade. A Iraq became an ally of Iran.
Boy, it sure was smart to spent trillions of dollars (that we don’t have) and thousands of lives, to topple Saddam.
Mexican, Central American and South America poverty isn’t our responsibility either.
I call BS. The Iraq war was never “won”. And Iraq has been Iran’s biggest ally, ever since we toppled Saddam. The burka came back and other elements of sharia after Saddam was ousted.
Do you want the US to go back to Iraq?
Where will the money come from ? That’s a question the pro-war conservatives never ask, when it comes to war. Just like liberals never ask that question when it comes to their domestic spending programs.
cut and run
Uh, we were there for 10 years. How many years should we have stayed?
Pelosi is not our responsibility.
We were played like a fiddle.
The only I’d go back in and spend one more drop of blood or trillions more in American treasure we don’t have, is if we seized the country and all of it’s oil etc. We own it. Give the Iraqis just enough to survive, that’s it.
Otherwise, no way, they can fight their own GD internal battles.
The Iraq war was never won
Islam has been continuously at war with the rest of the world for 1400 years.
There is no way to win a war with a people who’s basic religious tenets is to instruct it’s believers to fight jihad against all who do not convert to Islam.
The best you can hope for is to contain them and keep them from attacking others, including ourselves.
Think of the Cold War not against atheistic communism but against radical Jihad.
In that we were successful after 10 years of world wide conflict
Syria and Egypt wasn’t our respnsibility either yet Pelosi encouraged US intervention.
Says she who meets with Assad with her Gucci headscarf. Should have been on a po.. can’t finish that sentence..
I never said I wanted us back in Iraq. I simply pointed out that all the D’s that voted to go into Iraq are now blaming it squarely on W. That’s all.
How about pulling your post, cleaning up the language and reposting it? We know that you’re ticked off. Stop the trash talk. There’s too many wives and moms on FR for it to be spouting this stuff on every other thread..
She also supported a Obama on Libya. The way I remember it she said she was concerned about preventing a humanitarian disaster.
As proto-AQ guys pour in on the Sunni side and Iran sends in Al Quds guys on the Shiite side, strangely enough perhaps Joe Biden would be the best person to “handle” the situation ?
“When Saddam was in power, Iraqs Islamists were suppressed (brutally), and Iraq was a foe of Iran.”
Nothing more needs to be said.
She is just a stupid old battleaxe
Bush got us into Iraq based on a lie so we don’t have to do anything now is the ‘rats’ line, as per the likes of the-out-of-this-world Dennis Kulcinich or however it’s spelled on Fox tonight - like Truman got us into Korea, so why should Eisenhower have done anything.....
Expanding on that, any town we capture—up goes Ol Glory! And their ‘family’ AKs go into a bonfire in the middle of town. No rules of engagement, one rule: kill the enemy.
No more ‘nation building.’ That was neo-con BS.
And liberals wonder why the rest of the world has a hard time trusting us.
As a postscript, remember that multi-million dollar embassy we built in Baghdad a few years ago? Money down the old rat-hole.
I want to be on record here and now as one pining for the good old days when Saddam was in power.
What Pelosi does not understand, is her policies and delusions have started this world spiraling down into WWIII
Close your eyes and Terrorism just poofs. See how easy that is?

I blame it on W. Damn right I do. You break it, you bought it, as Colin used to say. Well we broke it real good.
You mean business as usual?
Dude that was like 10 years ago!
Last I heard, at $750 Million. That would build some serious fencing down on the border.
Define military action! Nukes from orbit. No problem. Get em allah at one time and rid humanity of this satanic scourge
We beat Japan! It will take a more devistating action to end this one.
this is parrotting Hillbill saying terrorists are Pakistan and Afganistan’s problem.
On the you-break-it-you-bought-it theory, Iraq became our responsibility once we moved to overthrow their government.
OMG. Hell just froze over I actually agree with or maybe I should say Pelosi agrees with me on this issue.
Screw Iraq. Those dirtbags did not want us there did not want our help, shot our soldiers in the back and on and on.
Now they want our help?
Sorry all you muslim can kill each other off as far as i am concerned. Less of you to kill us in the end.........
So how many more military lives do we want flushed down the toilet in a useless endeavor? 4,500 killed and more than 32,000 wounded not enough to satisfy us? I know it’s not nearly enough to satisfy that courageous, armchair-Rambo Hannity.
How did Pelosi ever get out of the embarrassment of traipsing around with Assad and then when the Syrian civil war started, Dems called Assad a terrorist that must be defeated. Was she ever even asked about what happened to her relationship/friendship with him??
