Criticism mounting of Obama
administration’s inaction in Iraq

Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 6/15/2014 2:40:31 PM

Members of Congress called on President Obama Sunday to link up with Arab allies and quell a quick-moving crisis in Iraq, where Islamic militants swept toward Baghdad and left a bloody trail in their wake. Republican lawmakers said the administration has sat on the sidelines for too long as sectarian violence threatens to undo what U.S. troops accomplished during the war in Iraq. The bloodshed spurred by militants from an al Qaeda splinter group could topple the country’s fragile government while civil war rages in neighboring Syria, they said, offering a magnet for extremists from Iran and even western nations.

This is one time when action taken too late has the same result as taking no action at all. The one thing every side in this conflict has is that they hate the west and America especially. Time to NUKE AND PAVE?

I see no reason not to wait. The Iraqi´s will have to coalesce and decide to fight.
Our getting into this while they are surrendering without a fight seems unwise.

#´s 3 and 4 seem to have forgotten that we are the enemy and the real targets here. Al Qaeda isn´t there to settle in Iraq and raise their families. They are preparing for the next 9/11 (or worse) and the $450 million they stole from the bank in Mosul will buy a lot of weapons. Meanwhile the President dithers outting not only the whole region at risk but also his own country. Or I should say the US. Not at all sure he considers this his homeland.

John Wayne would attack them now while they are advancing on the road, an easy target, no place to hide, only attacking the attackers.
John Wayne would not wait until they arrive in Bahgdad, while the terrorists kill half the residents, and save the rest as hostages so that John Wayne cannot bomb the city to smithereens and kill so many civilians.
Oh, that´s right, got to play golf first. Get back to ya, later.

The assumption that POTUS wants the "militants" to lose may be wrong.
A narcissist is never wrong and Obama was against the Iraq intervention all along.

Does political vindication trump national security?

The real target is the assured safety and physical security the American people have enjoyed for more than two uninterrupted centuries. The internal part of this drive is being executed by Holder and his DoJ - Fast & Furious, Knockout Games. The external is unfolding in the Levant before our eyes. This is the purpose this man was brought in and installed. Time is short before they are fully exposed. It is naive to expect they will not move.

Baghdad is the big symbolic target here. If the islamonuts manage to get there and infiltrate the city, their status in the Middle East is assured. They will have the entire country, its weapons and treasury, Obama will look like a helpless opossum and it will take several years of house-to-house fighting to eradicate them, provided anybody has the will to do it.

I´m surprised anybody is even asking B-HO for help, given his record of cowardice, betrayal and surrender.

If Obama allows ISIS to take Iraq, gasoline prices will probably double, fulfilling the goals of Obama´s envirowacko buddies.

Add in the fact that only America´s enemies will benefit, and you will see why Obama is once again openly siding with radical Islam.

I thinks it was unfortunate that George W Bush couldn´t really tell the American people why we went into Iraq - remove a vicious dictator and have a strong American presence in the ME to counter Iran. And I believe most of talking heads back then said Iraq was the one country in the ME most capbale of becoming democracy because it was pretty secular and the most modern.

As for those who say let them kill each other - that´s fine but until they´re all dead, the West and the US in particular will still be their target; both by the Sunnis (Al-Qaeda) and the Shias (Iran).

And I dislike those critics who say they have had enough time to get their act together, really? Look at S. Korea, Germany and Japan - we didn´t leave those countries to the fates just because we had defeated them, the exception being S. Korea.

2 weeks ago when Maliki requested bombs it would have made a difference, perhaps. Now, what difference does it make, as Hitlery would say.
In this case I would say let the Middle East kill each other as they have done for thousands of years. Neither Bush nor this vegetable in the WH make any difference. Most of these people are not ready for democracy.
Our troops give their lives for bringing them a largely unwanted gift. Meanwhile, what´s happening to us? Every day we live under a tighter dictatorship! Keep our troops over here, let them clean up the border and put up a fence. Let them protect us!

I wonder how many New Yorkers who were involved or saw first hand the destruction of 9/11 voted for the village idiot we have in the White House? Do they really feel safer under obama´s leading from behind foreign policy? I´m just curious. I´m very concerned that another attack is being planned and the current Administration will just ignore the spooks like at Benghazi or slow walk a decision to respond. Inaction seems to be his forte in foreign policy.

This is beginning to feel just like our running from Vietnam almost in panic. The Lucianne cartoon brought back sad memories. The difference is, we never won that war because we never really tried.

We "won" in Iraq in the sense that the country was under control. However, the concept we seem to have of beating a country and then rebuilding it as our friend is really dumb. The military is for breaking things and maintaining control during a transition time. Trying to convert a significantly different culture to our way of thinking is a waste of time. If they, terrorists from their country attack us, we should pound them into submission and repeat until they get the message or there are none of them left.

As to the current situation, BO and Hillary have screwed it up so badly it is not salvageable. Exit NOW! But everyone should recognize the mess is the CURRENT administration´s fault. (Ha Ha - the administration and media will never do that)

Also, we can now almost supply all our energy needs ourselves. If BO wasn´t a nitwit we would probably already be doing it. Left them keep their oil.

Let the Arab neighbors help out for a change. Neighbors are supposed to help neighbors. The West gave Iraq a chance to build itself and all we got was an army that meekly surrenders in the face of the advancing ISIS.

Washington — Is racial animosity behind some political criticism of the Obama administration? That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday. The exact phrase he used was “racial animus,” which he said motivates some of his and Obama’s political opponents. (Snip) At the right-leaning "Hot Air!" Noah Rothman used even tougher language. The Obama administration long ago perfected the art of cultivating the sense among its defenders that lingering racism inspires most of its critics, according to Mr. Rothman. If the US was still so racially sensitive, why did it reelect an African-American president?

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has now controlled much of Iraq for over a month. The group has been prolific in its abuses even during this brief reign of cruelty: In recent weeks it´s crucified its opponents in Syria, executed scores of police officers in northern Iraq, threatened archaeological sites, and even destroyed hookah tobacco. This over-the-top brutality is a reflection of ISIS founder Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, once one of the world´s most notorious terrorists.

Investigators said the 90-pound dog was tethered to a pole when the attack happened around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. They said the boy was trying to give the dog a hug when it mauled his neck and face. "The child went to give the dog a hug, and it latched onto his face," Commerce City police spokesman Chris Dickey told the Denver Post. The child suffered severe facial injuries, but was expected to survive. Police said the dog's owner is a transient who was present at the time of the attack.

Harare, Zimbabwe — President Robert Mugabe’s statement early this month that whites will no longer be allowed to own land in Zimbabwe, and that any white farmers still left will be kicked out, raised eyebrows at home and abroad. Now those comments by the long-ruling autocrat are bringing a backlash in Zimbabwe’s beleaguered trade and tourism ministries. One Harare business newspaper calls them “not just racist but also unconstitutional, retrogressive, and detrimental.” As the Monitor reported July 3, Mr. Mugabe visited a small farming community 120 miles from the capital Harare that was handing out land permits.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
