The IzzlamoFascists have received the message loudly and clearly from Obozo the Klown that "THEY" have nothing to fear from the nasty USofA when Obozo is at the helm We are NOT at war with Izzlam but THEY are at war with USA!

“US is pulling out, so whats the point of this mindless slaughter?”
Same as it always was...for the Islamists and Al Qaeda to take over Iraq. That’s why it was stupid of Obama to set a time table for troop withdrawal. He is an idiot.
Sunnis killing Shi’ites and vice versa has been going on since Islam began. This is nothing new.
Except tht we will not be seing it on the news 24-7 to protect obowma
The Iraquis better get used to the under side of a bus, because that is where Obama is going to kick them, and soon.
I think the reaction to us leaving too soon will make them hate us. Thanks Obama, but at least you bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, which I guess makes up for the stupid decisions you are making.
Oh, Don’t forget the TALIBAN is now INVADING Pakistan-PockyStan and will have defacto control of the country in a week or two...see link below
