Posted on 06/14/2014 8:18:02 AM PDT by blueyon

As the Al Qaeda aligned ISIS jihadists roll on towards Baghdad, there are reports that at least 200 Americans were trapped and surrounded at the Balad Force Air Base. An anonymous contractor claiming to be among the besieged U.S. citizens posted this call for help on CNN’s “IReport” website yesterday:

I am writing from ballad Iraq as a employee of sallyport, ksillc..there are approx 500 US citizens on balad air base north of Baghdad trapped..we are part of a little known F16 iraq support mission here…The company has reportedly for the last 3 days to fly us out, we are now all herded into a central location on base..and being told nothing.

Prayers that God sends his angels to protect these people while waiting to get out.

That being said, I am so glad to know Obama will be golfing and fund raising this weekend. Bless his heart, He sure does keep his priorities in order doesn't he.

These civilians can thank Obama/Jarrett for providing a commander for these terrorists.

Let the President think about this for another month or so.

Bet the emails and recordings of this will be lost in a computer glitch as well.

Great, and we problably had to immigrate the Iraqi evacuation force to Texas as well I would guess.

If you were all deserters and defectors, Dear Leader would have you rescued in a jiffy.
Alas, you are loyal, good American citizens so he will give you a good speech and then go fiddle while R...er go do a couple rounds of golf and do some Dem fund raisers...while you die.

The U.S. Traitor-in-Chief desires the Americans be sacrificed as an honor to the jihadists.

Congress will do nothing in response other than to flatulate the sounds of being upset.

The obliging media on last evenings news showed the Obama’s visiting a Indian reservation in the Dakota's. No mention of course that they merely stopped over on their way to Palm springs, CA for golf and a fund raiser. It goes without saying if this had been Bush it would have been noted with the appropriate snarky comment.

I like the Qatar connection. Obama (and probably our money) set up alqueda in Qatar. Then they sent the 5 terrorists there.

I see Treason all around us. God help us!!

If any one had any doubt, they shouldn't now....Obama is a muslim through and through.

More here

If correct by now they have been evacuated to Baghdad, and then Dubai. There were an estimated total of 300 which included the 200 contractors.

My 32 year old son said this same thing this morning.... Nam all over again? Almost the same time period since we left has passed this time as well.

Diplomacy? With savages? I keep saying that David didn’t take a Bible to negotiate with Goliath. He killed him with God’s blessing.

Yes, I have an exceptional son who studies history and lots of other things. Most of all, he thinks.

Obama and the American left are getting everything they want, the radical Islamic takeover of the Mideast, the flooding of America with illegals, normalization of homosexuality, racial violence in our cities. It’s a dream come true for the left, one that is worth losing a few elections. The left and its fanatic media have beaten down opposition to radical leftism, so that the Republican Party is incapable of changing the direction this country is going.

Well, to quote Chris Matthews, “you got to get out there and take risks and sometimes you get killed. And that’s part of the business...”. So, Chris has Obama’s back, he says it’s no big deal if a few people get killed here and there, it’s just “business”. Sounds like the defenders of this Administration are getting their talking points from Michael Corleone.

I’ve been trying to learn more about Sunni/Shiite, so your link caught my eye. So I went to read, and as I’ve learned from FR, always check out sources that are new to me.

After researching MintPress, I am now not sure about anything I might read from them. Here is a link from FAIR, dealing with MIntPress and Syrian chemical weapons use. Seems MPress’ version, which was heavily quoted in all the news reports I read and heard, was disavowed by the supposed reporter.

http://www.fair.org/blog/2013/09/01/which-syrian-chemical-attack-account-is-more-credible/
Originally thought I would write you privately, but thought, why not discuss it with all. As I said, I am still trying to figure out the Sunni/Shiite thing.

I sent you a link to study the Jihad you wanted to know about, it is written by intellectual historians from a neutral perspective (non-religious).

Their historical accuracy helps us see the intensity of the conflict between Sunni and Shiite.

As for reporters who approve or disavow things, it makes you wonder are they Arab, Liberal, or Well known neutral...because only neutral reporting is necessary. Any religious, nationality, or country loyalty will be scewed in someone’s favor.

I guess in a warped sense this conflict is like the Hatfield and McCoys...sort of.

Let me give you a Christian link to see the Sunni-Shiite conflict from the Biblical viewpoint. Both accounts should correlate... If you understand the old Persian Empire. You can see what is happening today to fulfill this prophecy:
http://www.kjvbible.org/daniel.html

This is not going to be a short conflict, imho...look for Turkey, Pakistan, and other influences to be a part of this Iran-Iraq fight> Sunni-Shiite sorting out of old hatreds, if this is Daniel’s prophecy of end times.

WE think we can only take certain Republican approved links to prove a point, when in fact some of the less religious links (not liberal but historical facts) that stick with history and when compared with the Bible we see there is the picture of what prophecy we are witnessing. As long as they are not trying to fulfill a political agenda.
