Politics: MSNBC: Iraq's collapse is a problem because people might think it's Obama's fault (video)
Best of Cain ^ | 6/13/14 | Robert Laurie

Posted on 06/13/2014 3:47:45 PM PDT by blueyon

Maybe because it is? Nah, that can't be it. Nothing's his fault.

In the last few days, city after city has fallen to a massive army of Al Qaeda offshoot terrorists called ISIS. As the Daily Beast puts it, ISIS is the terrorist organization so extreme that it was "booted" from Al Qaeda proper. They organized, trained, took Mosul and, as a result, have now confiscated gobs of formerly-U.S. military hardware.

With the fall of Mosul on Tuesday, Iraq’s al Qaeda offshoot has not only seized the country’s second-largest city, it appears it also has come into possession of the heavy weapons and vehicles the U.S. military had provided Iraq’s military to fight them.

Now, the Independent reports that Baghdad is preparing for the worst as the army of Islamic militants threatens to overrun the capital city.

"This then drives it back into the domestic politics of 'it’s Obama's fault."

I am amazed that anyone could think it is NOT Obama's fault

The Daily Therion is a laugh a minute, is it not. What could be un-extreme about any of these Islamic terrorists?

I never watch the network news because it just irritates me.

I did catch just a few words as I was switching channels.

I am not sure which network it was but he said something very much like this. The first few words are an exact quote.

“Make no mistake, this was caused by our intervention in Iraq by the Bush administration.” I am not certain he used the word Bush but if he didn’t he said basically the same thing.

The U.S. leaves creating a power vacuum. A vacuum that quickly becomes filled by Islamic extremists. Not only is it easy to understand, it was easy to predict. Good lord, is MSNBC THAT obtuse?

Obama was directly responsible for:

the released of the ISIS ringleader who was being help prisoner by the US

withdrew from Iraq

who knows what terror organizations he funded by attempting to destabilize Libya, Egypt, and Syria

backed Arab Spring which blew up in MSNBC's (Cult of personality) savior's face

has an agenda similar to Osama bin Laden: Destroy what has made the United States a world power and economic powerhouse.

As long as he can stay in office, I think he doesn't really care what people think.

He just moves on to the next big mess he intends to make Now that he doesn't have to run again, he doesn't care...just keeps on doing what he wants to do. Nobody tries to stop him so why should he care?

A bigger question, “Is the formation of a new WORLD ISLAMIC CALIPHATE Obama’s fault?”

Iraq disappears due to ISLAM because the ME dictators, removed with such efficiency by the US Muslim Brotherhood alliance with the US form the Bush’s to Obama, no longer exist to prevent the Muslim vacuum left being filled by a new Caliphate, carefully, and necessarily dissolved by wise men of the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 in Paris.

Iraq does not matter with Syria except for the water it controls, now in ISIS hands along with what is in store with what Islam does when it has money, weapons and masses of willing Jihadists. What a Caliphate can do, with demonstrative heads rolling in Iraq, is what it has done thru history, expand territory in a slicing manner.

Is Obama the latest “useful idiot” inabler President ridding the ME of its last dictators for the vacuum to be filled by a Caliphate”? We will know shortly. Egypt and Agaganistan will fall quickly to a Caliphate with the US withdrawing. Will we get our forces and mission out of Afgainstan for less than a MASSIVE price?

The wrong questions are posed about Obama.

Everything this A-Hole Resident has done during the last six years of his term has been against the best interest of the United States and the American people.

Its as if the American people elected Joe Stalin to lead our country.

This disaster and every other disaster obama has created is his responsibility.I hope the democrat A-holes that voted for him appreciate what he’s done.The lives of their children will depend on it.

I am amazed that anyone could think it is NOT Obama's fault.

Their argument is simple: Our brave young leader, B.O. would not have had to deal with it if Bush had not invaded Iraq. The chaos now taking place would not be our concern, likely not be taking place with strongman Saddam in power, and the US weaponry would not be there for the taking. This is not my argument but a supposition of one that might be advanced by Obama's defenders

It’s a problem because Obama has been more concerned with transgendered in the military than our national security.

I’m going to say what no one else is going to say, namely that MSNBC and the Black Congressional Caucus have some of the stupidest black Americans in the history of our country.

This woman, along with that Perry-Harris-thing, and Rep. Johnson (Guam will tip over), Sheila Jackson Lee (everything she says is stupid), Barbara Lee (a red for decades), Eljiah Cummings ( the biggest Obama cover-upper in govt), etc. are a disgrace to black Americans, white Americans, all Americans.

We have Justice Clarence Thomas, the late Whitney Young (Urban League), Col. Alan West, the late George Schuyler, Walter Williams, Prof. Sowell, Martin Luther King Jr’s niece, and many other rational, intelligent, articulate and patriotic black Americans who do not sound like they are drunk, drug-addled, illiterate stooges, so why does the mainstream media hire complete dotes, fools, and iqnoramuses?

Well the demographics are 25% “minority” so that pretty much synchs up with Baraq’s fan club.

Everyone seems to be dancing around what seems to me obvious. Obama is getting exactly what he wants, domestically and internationally. No one can be so wrong about everything without trying. He is a Muslim Commie who hates America as an imperial power that milks the rest of the world. He is the Anti-American President and he was elected twice.

That's a fun game.

If LBJ hadn't decided not to run in 1968, Nixon wouldn't have won and give us Watergate in 1972. Without Watergate, Jimmy Carter would never have been elected in 1976, leading to the fall of the Shah of Iran and the rise of Islamic Terrorism.

It's Johnson's fault!

That's what Senator Joseph McCarthy used to say about the State Department. If they were merely stupid, they'd make a mistake in our favor part of the time. Instead all their mistakes are against us.
