If they are afraid of ISIS...yes it is bad....for them.
I would be surprised if Iran doesn’t enter the fight in a very big way.
And how could we blame them, fighting against terrorists in support of the legitimate government there.
Iran is not there to defend the Iraqi government. They’re going for the entire region.
“The official said people in the U.S. Embassy feel threatened, but it’s too “politically sensitive” to evacuate them right now.”
Apparently it was to “politically sensitive” to do anything about Major Nidal Malik Hasan before he killed and wounded so many of our Soldiers in San Antonio. Apparently it was to “politically sensitive” to do anything about Benghazi while they watched our brave Men in a 7 hour fire fight.
Heaven help them.

Well, obviously, the way to catch up is to go golfing and fundraising.
172 golf days for Obama.
We have been arming the FSA in Syria. There are about 10 FSA fighters left; ISIS killed them. Now ISIS has the weapons.
We are a cartoon version of the Three Stooges.
It is really a simple equation.
The al-Qaeda side, apparently under the planning and guidance of Saddam’s former officers, is making an impressive play to regain Sunni control over a heavily Shiite country, so that the 10% of Sunnis will once again rule over the 70% of Shiites. Rather unlikely.
But, if they fail, that will be the end of Sunnis in Iraq. For the most part, they will have to flee to either Jordan or Saudi Arabia. However, the fools have already threatened to overthrow the king of Jordan next, so he and his Bedouins are unlikely to give them a friendly welcome.
For its part, Iran faces the tremendous temptation to stay in Iraq and take over its government. And if they try to do so, and the Iraqis start seriously fighting them, it might be the best outcome, as far as the west is concerned, as it will deplete Iran’s resources and war making ability.
File this in the “No S*** Sherlock” file.
Good thing we released their funds and gave them permission to continue their nuke program, that really made them like us, Whoo-Hoooooooo!
Allegra, are you home, safe?
>> We are way behind the curve.
No way? Figured Obama would be on top of things.
