Skip to comments.Obama: Iraq needs to solve its own problems
Posted on 06/13/2014 10:34:52 AM PDT by Nachum
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama says Iraqs government must make a sincere effort to address sectarian differences, or else U.S. military help wont succeed in curbing the insurgency there. He says, quote, We cant do it for them. Obama says the U.S. wont send troops back into Iraq. But he says hes asked his national security team to prepare a range of other options. He says hell review those options in the coming days. Obama says the risk posed by terrorists in Iraq could eventually pose a threat to U.S. interests, too. A fast-moving insurgency in Iraq has taken over

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
And Qatar needs to build its own pipeline to Europe.
The Mahdi has just turned Iraq over to coreligionist Islamocommunist terrorist soul brothers.
In short, the bullet lodged in my shoulder blade might as well have been shot by Obama instead of insurgents.
Thanks for wasting years of my life, Obama.
Well Iraq needs to solve the problems we have created for them is more like it. But when muslims are fighting and killing muslims its never bad.
The entire ersatz “Arab Spring” was engineered to this or a similar outcome.
Sure wish he'd take the same laissez faire approach in all the other matters he was unqualified to deal with.
Obama has your six...but not in a good way!
But he will continue to ship weapons to Iraq so that Iran can confiscate them.
You may not call him the loser he is because he is black black black and don't any of us forget that.
Where are some huevos on some folks somewhere to take his executive actions to court?
“Let them eat cake!” Barak Obama
Look how NBC News spun this story. Headline: “U.S. Will Do Our Part in Iraq Crisis.” Quote is attributed to Obama...
Let them burn- Barack O'Nero
Iraq gets thrown under Obama’s bus.
While King Obama arms insurgents via Syria, and then parks Americans off the coast.
Obama is truly in it to cause as much strife as possible.
Nope. But him and Hillary sure as hell could get involved in Libya.
Without Zer0, the US can solve its problems too.
Conservatives must speak up. When Obama is right, he is right. They got to solve their own endless thousand year Sunni - Shiite problems. Our involvement means we lose. Staying out means we tell them we will trade with both sides [like Vietnam China] means we win.
Look at it this way. Bush went into Iraq and he took out the enemy of Iran. Now Iran is back in Iraq. Going into Iraq that was supposed to welcome us and make us their friend because we hung Saddam. Getting involved in Iraq was the gift that keeps on giving to cost us in blood and money. Get the hell out and stay out of picking sides. Trade with all as George Washington said. Alliances with none.
Thanks for wasting years of my life, Obama.
Thank you for your service.
It's a shame the American people were stupid enough to elect this half-Kenyan clown TWICE so that he could make a mockery of what you did to preserve our freedom.
Sorry George, it was Jefferson. “The inaugural pledge of Thomas Jefferson was no less clear: “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations-entangling alliances with none.”.
Trying to stop muslims from killing each other is like trying to stop cats from killing birds.
The only way that Iraq’s problems are solved is by boots on the ground killing the enemy. You know the one thing we did not allow them to do when they were there!
Drones and missile’s will not solve this. We had the opportunity when our troops were there but our leaders lacked the balls to allow them to do their job.
Somebody need to tell him ISIS executes gays. He’d be there in a New York minute.
And that goes for Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc etc, too.
I don't think Iran is the problem at this moment.
That said,I'm beginning to wonder, like you, if there could be a silver lining: if the Iraqis can retain most of what they now have, it will evolve into a regional sectarian struggle--with Iran up to it's knees. The terrorists will find that it is easier to take territory over there than it is to hold onto it while surrounded on all sides, and an over-extended Iran might become increasingly vulnerable to popular uprisings.
Thank you for your service. Prayers for your health.
The entire ersatz Arab Spring was engineered to this or a similar outcome.
The Sunni part will be in the middle and not have oil... or anything.
The top third will be given to Turkey. Turkey will go hard right Islamist... Within a few years the Sunni part will be destroyed. Iran will control 90% of the ME.
Putin will get Ukraine, the Chinese will control most of Asia... and the US ... well, best not to guess..
If they were future Progressive voters there would be a red carpet and all the military they need.
When I think it cannot become more obvious, Obama proves me wrong.
