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.
Elizabeth is staying on script. She knows who’s buttering her pumpernickel bread, and it’s not Mrs. Clinton, or any of her shrill acolytes in the media.
No, he doesn't want to harm his home boys, so he will not do much.
Unequivocal defeat of the enemy is the only negotiation that works.
History waits, and wonders when the right person will come along to show the leadership needed for these troubled times. And then came Ignoramus Pocohauntus. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Maybe not guilty as looks go, but you'll be getting shots in your ass for 6 months after dipping into that.
By failing to come out for the extermination of all Jews wherever they can be found, she just lost the American Jewish vote.
That’s nice. Two weeks ago the were asking to repeal the use of force law.
“the cute hippie/nerdy princess is not guilty.”
Yeah, but she probably takes a shower once a month whether she needs it or not.
-—. 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.——
That’s liberal thinking 101.....
A military solution is a precursor to diplomatic negotiation...
These are your terms of surrender....works very well after you kick their asses....
Negotiating without leverage means you will lose every time ....
Just a note: Valarie “MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD “ Jarrett is conspiring and helping Warren run for president
But like the president I believe that any solution in Iraq is going to be a negotiated solution, not a military solution.
Democrats still can’t face the real world so they just make one up.
She is sharpening her tomahawk and is on a war path.
This bring into question. Why don’t the libs have a problem with calling a helicopter “Apache” or a missile “Tomahawk”, but have a problem with a football team name?
Really, what's so complicated about it? ISIS needs to be wiped out. And "targeted" airstrikes aren't going to solve anything. It's symbolism over substance.
Exactly. Typical political hot air. “Negotiating” with murderous savages only results in continuation of the status quo, not that Hussein Hopenchange or his ilk care in the first place.
We have a phony injun and a guy who was given the Nobel peace prize for nothing, he didn’t build that. Is it any wonder why anyone who pays attention would hold these two in contempt?
Warren is heap-big warmonger.
Is she calling for the scalps of the ISIS terrorists?
In her response Senator Warren said “ I was disappointed that the President chose to use bombs rather than Tomahawks”
Fauxcahantas = evil
Hildabeast = evil
Fauxcahantas = anti-Hildabeast
Two wrongs don’t make a right!
No, he’s going to as little as possible while claiming he’s fighting for the cause. Their cause, not ours. He thinks nothing of the blood of our troops on his hands with this half ashed vaudville show.
ISIS offer: Convert to Islam, pay a tax, or die.
What do you recommend as a counter-offer, Senator.
,,,,,,, liz warren is a communist lemming ,, she would follow 0bama to the sea just to show her affection to the communist regime .
Oh, c’mon. She can’t be riddled with... hippie cooties ?
