WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered an aircraft carrier moved into the Gulf on Saturday, readying it in case Washington decides to pursue a military option after insurgents overwhelmed a string of Iraqi cities this week and threatened Baghdad.

If the Iraqi air force could evacuate people, why aren’t they fighting?
launch air strike NOW
Because their planes point in the direction away from the battle.
Sure.....give those rocket launchers a target......
Isn’t this a little late? I just finished watching “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit”. Tom Clancy wrote the book, based on the settled fact that there are government organizations whose goal it is to watch over and protect the United States. Have all these organizations been neutralized? With what is going on, it seems no one is minding the store.
Can’t answer that question, but at least they are willing to help evacuate our contractors out of Balad which is a heck of a lot more than our own Air Force is permitted to do at this time, thanks to orders from BO to stand down.
It’s a good thing Barry Soetoro left Rimshot Joe Biden and Transgender Chuckie Hagel in charge while he’s off fundraising out in Cauliphonya. This Iraq thing could become semi-serious. LOL!
I tend to agree but wonder if the stolen surface to air missiles stolen at Benghazi are not lingering in wait somewhere.
That's a question for somebody who knows what they're talking about.
I would suspect, though, that MANPADS are a far more serious threat to a helicopter than they are to an F/A-18.
Gallup tracked him at -13 today after being as high as -1 earlier in the week. VA hurt him with that fickle 10-15% of electorate; Bergdahl may actually have helped him; ISIS is really hurting him. So he pulls the gunboat diplomacy card out. It might work until gas prices hit $4.
It would be a token strike or series because soetoro’s an islamist who thinks his brothers are doing pretty well about now. Anything to give Netanyahu conniptions.
Huffpo is celebrating potential alliance with Iran to fight ISIS. That ‘ll put the gulf states and Saudi in play for sure.
"Hello? McFly? Hello?"
Irony of ironies, they’re sending the USS George Bush.
Gas prices have been riding the $4 gallon mark almost since the won took office.. it is 4.19 now, I just got some..
Knowing Obama...probably against the Kurds for taking over their oil production.
That’s Smart tell the ISIS exactly what you are doing step by step ,maybe even send them emails
