What we have now is the worst of outcomes, a client state of Iran that will support terrorism more than ever.
Thing was won before Obozo took office.... it was difficult, but it was on the right track more or less.
Now Obama and co. have wasted all those US lives and treasure.
This article pretty much ignores the fact that HILLARY was the Secretary of State during the developing fiasco, and she accomplished nothing but lead us to disaster. If/when she runs for President this needs to be laid at her door, along with Libya, Syria, Egypt, and all of her other disasters.
Val Jarrett (born in Tehran) had Obama give Iraq to Iran. Now the Saudi Sunnis are striking back the old fashioned way - Jihad. That is why Obama is paralyzed and doing nothing.
I don’t think we should waste one more dollar or life on these scumbags — Maliki and friends have clearly cast their lot with the Iranians.
For sure, we should NOT let Iraq have any further access to US arms and especially not to our technologies. We must now operate on the assumption that anything we let into the hands of the Iraqi govt. or military is shared with Iran.
We sure as hell should not let them have F-16s or any missile, guidance, drone, and radar technologies of any sort (it may be too kate..).
Already posted two days ago.
But...wasn’t he democratically elected by the people of Iraq? By removing him or supporting his removal, would the U.S. not be engaging in serious hypocrisy against the very ideals it is supposed to be promoting in Iraq?
Vince Fosters murder??
Smearing of ALL Bills problem ladies?
The les bean rumors?
Come on man, so much to get personal with this babe.
Democrats can't allow anything of lasting military value be accomplished by a Republican president.
Did you know they're changing the name of NYC's Triboro Bridge to the "RFK bridge" ?
Democrats name everything that can be named after themselves.
They're in the process of re-writing the history of the Cold War to keep credit away from Ronald Reagan.
I read this, this morning. It is an excellent article and read. Maliki needs to go and sooner is better. He has used his position as a means to settle his grudges and hatred for Sunni and the former baathists. Until he goes of his own accord or thrown out the current situation will not settle down. Once it does, the marginalized Sunni tribes will kick ISIS to the curb . The Sunni and a fair amount of the Iraqi Shia are fed up with Iran’s hands in the country. Currently a moderate Shia leader in Karbela is urging with his tribal influence against the Mullahs call for rising to the call of Militia. At some point the west is going to need to kill the ISIS. But with only 20% ISIS as estimated in the Iraq group revolting, we need to be careful to stay out. The big mistake was by Obama and company not supporting Allawi. He’s a decent moderate, friend of the US (or was prior to zero. We should have got that status of forces agreement and kept 10,000 troops in Iraq, which would have been to our own benefit, as history is showing us.
“he would create a divisive, despotic and sectarian government that would rip the country apart and devastate American interests.”
So will the next muzzie leader... and the next one... and the next one...
Bush’s fault. So says the MSM.
Obama just ‘inherited the situation.’
I was under the impression we “stuck” with him because he was the democratically elected leader of Iraq!
Great article from the Washington Post. Kind of surprising, coming from a liberal newspaper.
No .....we stuck with islum and lost Iraq.
Once we allowed their constitution to state “NO LAW SHALL CONTRADICT ISLAM”, we should have left.
Iraq’s number one religious leader is Sistani, born in Iran.
60 percent are Shiites, like 90 percent in Iran.
Today Iraq is just WEST IRAN.
So in 2010, Iran started throwing it’s weight around in Iraq. Maliki sided with Iran, and the Obama admin. turned a blind eye, although they were warned otherwise. Ok
Why does the Obama administration, along with the media, now pretend that Iran is going to be of benefit to Iraq and the US with a “new alliance”? I think if the media didn’t constantly regurgitate White House baffling talking points, things would make more sense.
Obama’s received cheering endorsements by Chavez and Ahmadinejad which should have sounded the alarm bells years ago. The media didn’t blink.
“Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Obama has been partial to Iran since he was elected

“Criminal plans” by Iran could be under way in Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, the report said.
“They are more involved in the cocaine trade than ever before, and have greater access in the region due their allies in Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and elsewhere,” Farah said. “ CNN 2013
Radical Islamic terrorists groups are tied to Hezbollah, which was formed and funded by Iran. The US government knows very well that Hezbollah is working throughout South America and Canada “America’s back yard”. Iran is dangerous, and suddenly the sanctions in place against Iran are meaningless as American defense contractors, and “green” energy companies are selling to Iran? Baffling doesn’t quite describe it.
