Skip to comments.Obama Rejects Kurdsí Plea For Help Against Isis
Posted on 07/27/2014 5:59:53 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
President Obama famously failed to act when warned that ISIS was preparing to mount an offensive in Western Iraq. This left ISIS free to conquer, with virtually no resistance, city after city in the defense of which American soldiers have shed blood.
Now Obama is receiving new warnings, this time from the Kurds in Northern Iraq. In fact, according to the Washington Post, the Kurds are pleading for U.S. military aid.
Unlike the Iraqi government, the Kurds possess a viable military that is prepared to fight ISIS. Indeed, they are fighting ISIS, and fairly effectively.
However, the Kurds now have a 650 mile border to defend, thanks to the abandonment of the area by Iraqs military forces. Thus, the Kurdish forces are stretched extremely thin.
The Kurds should be receiving a share of the weapons the U.S. is supplying to the Iraqi government. But that, of course, isnt happening. Mansour Barzani, the Kurdistan Regional Governments intelligence and security chief, told the Post that Baghdad hasnt provided a single bullet.
Meanwhile, says the Post, the ISIS forces attacking the Kurds have seized weapons worth hundreds of millions of dollars from retreating Iraqi soldiers. In effect, Baghdad is supplying ISIS while providing the Kurds with nothing.

Alas Babylon, thy day of retribution comes nigh...
He’s a Muslim. That’s where his sympathies lie, and the more Muslim (i.e., the more radical) the better. That explains a lot of his decisions: ISIS rather than the Kurds; Morsi rather than Al-Sisi; the Turkey/Qatar peace proposals which favor Hamas much more than the Egyptian ones; the endless Muslim outreach (infiltration, really) to appoint Muslims to positions of power in the US government.
And, he’s not just a Muslim. He’s a Marxist. He’s an LGBT fanboi (or maybe that’s just an Alinsky technique to get votes), and an obvious anti-white racist to boot.
The only things he seems to like about Western culture are golf, basketball, and hobnobbing with Hollywood stars.
The Taliban is in the White House.
We are a country without a leader. My heart cries for America and her allies.
Obama wants the bad guys to win. They are Muslim BH aren’t they?
Its been a problem all along but now that the pipeline thru Turkey is in operation, the Kurds can get their oil onto the world market and keep all the money.
And this is one of the reasons that the Iraqi Sunnis are willing join with ISIS.
Hey! Who would want to retribute ME?
The Kurds- the folks who bought TV and print ads to thank the U.S. for freeing them from Saddam Hussein, the ones worth helping.
No surprise, Odunga refused to Drone ISIS when they were concentrated shortly after crossing into Iraq despite Iraqi Gov. request. I’m guessing Odunga doesn’t want to appear to be a double crosser after supplying ISIS to take on Assad. This clown would screw up holding an Ace and Jack in a game of 21, he would call it 11 and double down.
Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Probably just a coincidence.
.....”Obama failed to act”......
He left his office long time ago....(was he ever there in the first place?)
Nothing will change until the people get together and stop it.
they think Barack gives a damn about Christians or freedom?
Nero fiddled while Rome burned...Obama does while the world burns.
Well, he is a marxist/moose-slum so it should not surprise anyone with a brain cell.
From the book, Alas Babylon.
A favorite of mine as a kid. It made me do a lot of thinking about the world around me.
