Skip to comments.Iraq evacuation of Yazidis on hold as White House declares siege is over
Posted on 08/14/2014 5:57:50 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Obama administration has ruled out for now a risky US military mission to rescue thousands of Iraqis stranded on a northern Iraqi mountain, declaring a siege by Islamist extremists to be over.
After a small complement of special forces and US aid workers landed on Mount Sinjar to assess the situation of the Iraqi Yazidis who for days have received air drops of food, water and medicine the Pentagon said things were not as bad as initially feared. An evacuation mission is far less likely, said Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, late on Wednesday.
US humanitarian aid drops would continue, Kirby said, but for now US planes or troops would not come to rescue the remaining Yazidis from the mountaintop terrain that has provided a harsh refuge.
The US has targeted Isis positions in the area with four air strikes since Saturday. The White House confidently declared the mission a success on Wednesday. The presidents decisive decisions in the immediate wake of the crisis kept people alive and broke the siege of the mountain, a White House official said.

EVERYTHING obama does either:
a) Weakens America/AmericansI have yet to have anyone raise a single substantive counter example in several years of posting this.
b) Distances America's allies
c) Strengthens America's enemies
d) Serves Islam
e) Harms Israel
Or some combination of the above.
Most of the Yazidis have been slaughtered so there is less of a problem. When oh when will the major networks start to tell the American people the truth. Could they possibly hate this country and see it destroyed as Obama wishes?
What the article omits is the motive. Our fearless leader will not annoy his true love, not even to save lives.
Lets see, who was our president from 2011 to now?
Isn't he wonderful! Lord Obama gives us free abortions and birth control. Then, he is letting ISIS, HAMAS, and other Islamic hate groups kill all those evil/judgemental Christians, Jews, and Iraqi Yazidis.
Sometimes the only way to really show my disgust would be to puke. There are no words.
The White House has just given ISIS the go-ahead to finish the slaughter.
“... as White House declares siege is over”
So...ISIS is on its heels?
Obama’s good, ain’t he?
Maybe he killed them all. He did say he was really good at killing people.
You just knew Zer0 would wait until it was too late. His MO. Indecision.

I can’t believe some of the comments made by liberals, like:
“ know ISIS are probably not very pleasant enemies but the death toll in this particular conflict is not very high...I know beheadings etc are horrific but there is not a lot of difference between being bombed from 30000ft ...you are still dead and probably get your head blown off anyway....and women and children are still the main victims....only difference is the pilot gets home to have a nice shower and dinner after killing so many people......oh dear what a thing to say!!.”
“four air strikes since Saturday”
Fewer than one per DAY.
0bambi must be feeling his one testosterone molecule.
That's because it's the truth
There is one exception:
There is one, exactly one, case where obama isnt backing the most muslim side.
Its protecting the Yazidis.
Who are the Yazidis?
The Yazidis are an ancient religion, one whose people revere Melek Taus, who is also known as the Peacock Angel, or Shaytan, or in English: Satan.
IOW, obama consistently supports any muslim over any Christian, the most radical muslims over more moderate muslims, and Satan worshipers over the most radical of muslims.
Obama is way too involved with fighting the war on American women to worry about a bunch of Christian refugees. Not to mention the management of the adoption process of our new kids coming across the border.
Well, not so "funny" if you're one of the Christian strandees.
Oh boy ... this is not going to end well for the Bamster. As soon as IS starts their massacre again it’s going to blow ‘the siege is over’ story out of the water. Are they that stupid ... or do they think we are that stupid?
They are stranded on a mountain top, no homes, air-lifted food and are left at the mercy of a regime (that has gone elsewhere to murder non-muslims) after seeing christian men, women and children decapitated. And we’re okay with that!! Remind me why we bombed Yugoslavia and assisted with the creation of Kosovo.
Because the Saudis told us to.
