U.S. President Barack Obama is considering a range of military options to help the Iraqi government break the momentum of Islamic militants determined to crush the government in Baghdad.
President Obama says the fact the Iraqi military will not stand and fight reflects the fractured politics of the country.
Theres a problem with morale, theres a problem in terms of commitment. And ultimately, thats rooted in the political problems that have plagued the country for a very long time, says Obama.
Zalmay Khalilzad, a former U.S. ambassador to Iraq, says problems have been slowly fomenting.
And in recent times, especially in the aftermath in the U.S. withdrawal, there has been increased ethnic and sectarian polarization, says Khalilzad.
And those sectarian divisions, analysts say, prompted Iraqi security forces to flee rather than fight since few felt any loyalty to the government in Baghdad.
Rampant corruption, poor leadership and demoralized troops, experts say, led soldiers to shed their uniforms and retreat when threatened by the insurgents.
Now Obama administration officials are debating how to bolster the Iraqi army.

The main obstacle to Impeaching Obama is the cowardliness of the Republican House Members to vote Boehner out as Speaker.
With Boehner just a regular House Member, Obama could be Impeached before Labor Day.
With Boehner as Speaker, Obama will continue to Fundamentally transform the United States of America, and enjoy every minute of it.
Send in the Democrat Division! They can talk a good fight.
Isn’t it true, Mr President, that your options are limited, mainly due to your own decisions to pull out prematurely and close our bases?
Obama will cover his head and hope it goes away
Yeah, when you sh*t the bed, you can either clean it up or leave it there.
Follow-up question: And isn’t it true, Mr. president, that these decisions were primarily for political reasons, ie, to aid in your re-election efforts? And now that the chickens have come home to roost, so to speak, shouldn’t your treasonous actIvities make you subject to impeachment?
I see a few rounds of golf coming up until he can figure out what to do. This could go on for awhile.
There are no options for a sissybitch that cannot command a toy boat in a bathtub.
His options are NOT limited, he will do what he does best - NOTHING or a MEANINGLESS RED LINE.
fta... Theres a problem with morale, theres a problem in terms of commitment. And ultimately, thats rooted in the political problems that have plagued the country for a very long time, says Obama.
How ironic! He just described the situation in the US since he was elected, and it seems to everyone to have been a ‘very long time’ ago! .......He’s useless to any other than the muslim terriorists.
