BOSTON Warning against a new U.S. war in Iraq, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Friday stood by President Barack Obamas decision to authorize targeted airstrikes to help defend Americans in Erbil, Iraq, and provide aid to a religious minority taking refuge in the Sinjar mountains.
Its a complicated situation right now in Iraq and the president has taken very targeted actions to provide humanitarian relief that the Iraqi government requested, and to protect American citizens, Warren told reporters. But like the president I believe that any solution in Iraq is going to be a negotiated solution, not a military solution. We do not want to be pulled into another war in Iraq.
Renowned for its financing strategies and media savvy and feared for its brutality, a group of Sunni sectarian extremists that now calls itself The Islamic State has expanded out of war-torn Syria into Iraq, where it imposes taxes and kills people of other religions, according to news accounts.
On Thursday night, Obama announced he had authorized air strikes to protect American diplomats, civilians and military personnel in Erbil, and humanitarian air drops of food and water had already begun to assist Yezidis, a religious minority, who fled to the Sinjar mountains.
An American-led invasion of Iraq was launched in March 2003, starting a war that was divisive politically and costly. After Obama failed at reaching accord on a new status of force agreement with the Iraqi government, the U.S. stuck to an earlier timetable, withdrawing troops from the country by Dec. 31, 2011.

Princess Lieawatha speak with forked tongue .
Stupid ass. Negotiate a settlement with ISIS.
Fauxahantas put on war paint, go on war path. Hohllee smokum!
Keepum deer skin on, ugh. Cover up. Heap bad medicine.
I hate $%^#ing liberal war-mongers.
Killing innocent Iraq babies, these liberal hypocrites make me sick.
Where is code Pink and Cindy Sheenan?
Too busy trying to destroy Israel?
Scott Pelley said tonight on CBS that this is “basically a war between muslims”. He must have been surprised when the reporter in the field said ISIS was killing Christians.
Give War a Chance.
Yup. Hypocrites to their rotten, evil, Communist cores.
Democrats are always the ones getting us into wars. For all those bitching about Dubya, remember that if Bubba Clintoon had taken out Osama when he should have, there might not have been a 9/11 and all the Middle Eastern (mis)adventures that followed. All Zero is doing is getting our people killed, and for what ?
180 degree spin. Libs are so funny. They go which ever way the wind is blowing, like they have no backbone
I think the only way that peace has a chance, is to make sure all the terrorists take a dirt nap. That is the only solution.
Well, sure. All the deocrats will be talking about how they were tough and supported His Majesty dropping eight bombs in Iraq.
I don’t know what’s in the first pic, but the cute hippie/nerdy princess is not guilty.
But that’s not what Obama is going to do.
That would be my guess.
You tap that and your **** will fall off, fieldmarshall.
Lieawatha just came from a secret meeting with Valerie Jarrett, I read, so she fastened on her feathered head dress and sang like a parakeet. Word for word.
They sure don’t like Hillary, over there at the White House, do they?
My mommy said Obamawar is good.
We will be able to negotiate with these genocidal nutcases just about as well as Israel has been able to negotiate with the Hamas genocidal nutcases...which is to say, not at all.
Warren is as big of a horse’s ass as jugears.
