After noting that Iranian weapons and military advisers are flooding into Iraq, while Syrian warplanes conduct air raids into Iraqi territory in the north, Fox News describes the smart power response of the utterly helpless Obama Administration:
The apparent involvement, however, of Iran as well as Syria is raising red flags in the Obama administration, with top officials voicing concern that their involvement could create a flashpoint that deepens sectarian tensions in the country. A senior U.S. official also confirmed to Fox News earlier this week that there are indications Syrian aircraft launched airstrikes against Sunni militant targets in Iraq on Monday.

The Iraq War was won in 2009. Obama has created an almost certain victory for Muslim extremists and an almost certain defeat for the U.S.
Wow, this is getting ugly. Good job, Obama. World War 3 anyone?
It will either be the Iranians or ISIS... great choice! (not)
Weakness and disarray invite aggression. Obviously a lesson unlearned by the Obama regime. It not only invites aggression but eventually results in a much bigger bigger, and then unavoidable, conflict. That’s what seems to be in the offing: war with the new state of Terroristan. I hope all the terrorists gather there so a new administration can obliterate it..
could create a flashpoint that deepens sectarian tensions in the country
deepen sectarian tensions?
The only time in the last thousand years that these people have not been killing each other is when they stop and kill us....
As I posted on another thread, its absurd to think that the supposed nations of the middle east are going to be permanent, when their borders were drawn by the European colonial powers, often to prevent true nations from being able to resist. Thats why 30 million Kurds, with a real separate identity and language have no nation, while artificial constructs like Iraq are supposed to be inviolable. And thats why the only way they dont devolve into civil war and anarchy is a dictatorship that crushes all opposition before it can start. How do you have “democracy” when most of the people there don’t agree on what country they are a part of?
Time for the State Department to post another hash-tag.
I’m just happy Obama is getting his (first hearing of this) from the media.
Sunnis outnumber Shiites 8-1. I am willing to bank Obama is a Sunni. Which now makes sense. He let the Shiites in Iran put down the rebellion Back in 2009 because if the Clerics were tossed, he would have another democracy in the world to deal with.
It would be hard to imagine how Obama could have screwed this up worse.
I’m thinking Obama was chosen by God to screw up the Middle East so that indeed World War 3 will begin which of course will lead to armegeddon(sp). Imagine that. Obama responsible for Armegeddon. End of the world as we know it. All of the people that voted for this asshole will have this over their head.
This is never a good thing when multiple countries are sending their military in the same spot of the world.
As long as the Muslims kill each other...no problem. Just keep it contained in Iraq, Syria and Iran. Let them behead, execute, rape, amputate each other... whatever Islam dictates they need to do. Praise wallah. No tears for any of them.
Looking worse—I bet we will be involved soon—wait till our embassy is under attack—how can you say Alamo? Russia will send planes and pilots—but its too little—too late. Iraq is no more.
The US doesn’t need to fight for Islam any longer.
Evidently, Maliki didn’t come up with the gold for the Democrat Party.
Iraq now has an Air Force again!
Iran returns 130 of Saddam’s aircraft held since 1992
(DESERT STORM) refurbished and armed!
now, who is flying them and who trained them?
Guess obama’s intelligent staff missed this one, too
Anyone see this... coincidence?

I don’t think you’re far off.
Now Obama wants to negotiate a settlement with this rogue terrorist organization that seems bent on destroying world civilization. And arm MORE Syrian "rebels" this time being really, really careful that they're not part of this crazed cancerous monster US and Saudi financing has created.
If this were a novel or movie, the reaction would be "this is nowhere near believeable"
Obviously, the presidency was above Obama’s paygrade.
Vatican cardinal: Iran sanctions shocking

Vaticans President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace has voiced surprise over the third round of sanctions against Iran.
Like any other state, Iran is entitled to peaceful use of nuclear energy. This is Vaticans stance toward Irans nuclear issue and it has always been one of our principal policies, Cardinal Renato Raffaele Martino, said on Thursday.
He made the remarks in a meeting with Irans chargé daffaires to Vatican, Mohammad Hossein Mirzaaqaie.
Martino also noted that Vatican welcomes IAEAs stand and role as well as its recently released report indicating Irans positive cooperation with the agency.
The IAEAs report clearly states Irans cooperation with the agency and urges diplomacy over Tehrans nuclear standoff.
As an internationally approved institution, world powers as well as the UN Security Council should prepare the grounds for the Agency to accomplish its duties, the Vaticans cardinal highlighted.
The Iranian envoy, for his part, called for further Tehran-Vatican cooperation in a bid to ensure the establishment and the promotion of justice, peace and international security.
