What is so difficult in sending in air support?
I think the Kurds are the good guys if there's such a thing in Iraq.
Nothing, but he's too timid to make a decision so he keeps voting "present", kicking the can down an ever-shortening road.
We are beyond that icky stuff now. We send hashtags and stern vocal warnings.
Remember how hot Obama was to bomb the cr*p out of Libya, and he did so WITHOUT even consulting Congress? As an agent of the Islamic Caliphate, Obama was eager to soften Libya for control by Sharia Islamists.. Same with Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc..
look, in several days it will all be over, and Baghdad will be in Al Baghdadi’s hands. Lots of folks—including Americans, I bet, will be DEAD. Now is not the time to go fundraising—Any American who now gives a Dime to this “President” (acting President really) is a traitor and should be publically shamed. It may come to the point when American will need to beseige the White House in the Tens of Thousands to urge him to resign—or urge the Joint Chiefs of Staff to take over and re-establish Democracy. Even President Biden would be an improvement—or President Bony—until elections can be held.
His buddies are winning.
For a normal President, nothing. For this guy, needs to check with that creepy lady Valerie Jarrett first.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but even Clinton wasn’t this stupid.
Air support would turn the Sunni forces advancing upon Baghdad into a replay of the "Highway of Death".
Unfortunately, it's the Sunni insurgents that we appear to be secretly on the side of. The Sunnis are supported by the Saudis, and the Saudis have Obama in their pocket.
Obama WANTS Iraq to fall to the Sunnis.
