The United States of America cannot
turn a blind eye´: Obama authorizes
airstrikes in Iraq to protect U.S. officials
and refugees trapped by ISIS rebels

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko*

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/7/2014 11:38:26 PM

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger,´ Obama said in an 8-minute speech delivered from the White House´s State Dining Room But American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, he insisted, and the U.S. won´t

Comments:
*with Associated Press and Reuters.

I may break another tooth over this:

´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger.´

Aaargh!!!

P.S. Does he often give pressers in the State Dining Room?

Øvomit created this mess by his rush to desert Iraq to his terrorist muslim brothers.

Now he´s going to try to look like a statesman for dropping a few bombs on terrorists that he single-handedly gave the thumbs up to do exactly what they are doing.

Anyone check Øvomit´s head for a big "666"?!?!?

So somehow the man was forced to wake up and actually do the job he campaigned for???

I hated that he qualified his statements, excusing himself for not doing anything before, but for the sake of the people trapped at least he is doing something about the mess we created.

The man and his team are without strategy and foresight - they have reduced our military shamelessly, they have got rid of all the good generals and replaced them with them two star pooftas, they have armed the enemy jihadis at our expense and given the finger to our allies. We have no need for these people.

Once the Islamo Dogs turn to the city with the Americans, they will be ordered to a defensive stance and then evacuate, leaving the native populace to the sword. Turkey will do nothing, since they hate Kurds and Zoroastrians. Jordan will fall next.

The Putz-in-Chief could have stopped tens of thousands of murders when ISIS was traveling in convoys through the desert between cities and beheading everyone in their path, but that window of opportunity closed months ago. Now he is going for the political points for "helping" those who have already lost family members through thirst and starvation. What is he going to do when the trapped Americans are threatened by ISIS and he has already declared no boots on the ground? He caused this mass murder by prematurely pulling our troops out of Iraq and the current death toll belongs to him. The very least he can do is drop some water out of a plane.

Too little too late.

BO should have done this MONTHS ago. Now ISIS has taken over most of Iraq, and BO looked the other way.

I´m so disgusted.

What is BO going to do? Tell ISIS what we are doing, when we are doing it, and when we will be done?

Just lobbing bombs at ISIS will not stop them. They are going to come to the USA, mark my words.

This is exactly what happens when you send a boy to do a man´s job. Obama is nothing but a two bit community organizer who sees everything through a progressive political lens. He is so utterly arrogant that he believes the world will do as he says. It doesn´t work that way, skippy. The world is a dangerous place and it takes men of integrity, courage and resolve to deal with thugs and barbarians. Ideologues who are too blinded by their own hubris are unqualified to do the job.

Obama creates dangerous chaos and calls it progress. He is a short sighted fool. He allowed ISIS to destroy the gains our military had fought and died to make. Now he is allowing ISIS to butcher anyone in their way. Obama sentenced the people of Iraq to this carnage the moment he made the decision to draw down our troops and that decision was made for pure political reasons. He gave no thought to what would happen to the people of Iraq. The decision was based on what was good for him politically. He used the people of Iraq and then threw them to the wolves. This man is a monster.

No doubt Obama was dragged ´kicking and screaming´ to this decision - to boost him in the polls while he´s vacationing. Don´t think for a minute he announced this because it was the right thing to do. "Doing the right thing" has never been a priority for ´our dear leader´.

My thoughts exactly, OP. Mega dittos to #20.

Retiring Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) was just interviewed on our local radio station here in Virginia. He highlighted several issues about what is going on in Iraq, namely that Christianity is being wiped out in Iraq, the Kurds are not being allowed to sell their own oil by this Administration (which I was not aware of), Aramaic (the language spoken by Jesus and the Chaldean Christians) is being wiped out, and that these "targeted strikes" will not be enough to destroy ISIL. There are Christian relief organizations apparently in the area who are ready to ready to provide food and other necessary items to those who are under threat.

Bravo #17. This is what happens when you play both sides of the fence. Since ISIS was hassling Syria and Assad, favored by Russia, it suddenly was a good idea for us to assist ISIS. Of course we had the obligatory humanitarian allegory to foist on the public since Assad is such a shmuck.

This is also the price others pay for our political gamesmanship. You know Bush woke up one morning and decided to go it alone and invade a tranquil country to blow of steam, steal oil for Cheney´s henchmen.

Had that been true simply pulling out saying we are sorry might seem to be a good idea. The harsh reality of the complexity of the world stage has flocked to our doorstep like an infestation of Jeremiah Wright chickens.

So we found ourselves hesitating until 40,000 people are starving to death on a mountain top and millions of lives are at the mercy of terrorists controlling a single dam.

The vitriol spewed by American leftists matters. We tend to pass it off for what it is, what we know it to be, but lo-fo´s fall for it and the rest of the world doesn´t necessarily get our perverse context. For instance when we say we tortured folks what do you think those who remove body parts for fun think that means?

Fox reported that two Navy jets from the George Bush operating in the Persian Gulf made a raid against an ISIS artillery position. I´m sure that this minimalist action will turn the tide completely in Iraq and render ISIS impotent for all times in the future.

Someone pointed out to Obama that he would be viewed with assisting genocide. That´s why he is doing it. If it was just 40,000 Christians
his response would be no action. The fact that this sect and group of people would be wiped out is the difference.

History looks bad n genocide.

#22 - I heard the same interview this morning. Rep Wolf has been very vocal about this for a long time. Rep Wolf also said that the West has to speak up as ISIS/ISIL IS a threat to the West. Hundreds if not more of their fighters have American or European passports.

How long did the US stay in japan after WWII? Gen MacArthur just didn´t leave the new government to figure things out on thier own - he actively influenced them and their leadership, including the Emperor. Obama just bailed out of Iraq because the man-boy hates work, challenges and anything that Goerge Bush touched.

As an Ohio Congressman (and Iraq veteran) on Fox News this morning said, how dare Obama talk about the American people being war weary when the men and women who fought that war are not weary but eager to see it completed to victory.

And if I hear one more Fox news bimbo (Shannon Bream) say that it´s hard being President, making tough decisions when asking some guest what Obama might do - I´m going to scream.

This entire event could have been avoided if Obama hadn´t been so quick to pull out of Iraq and make little or no effort to come to an agreement with al Maliki about residual forces remaining there. Obama blamed it all on him when we know it could have been done if there was a desire to do so. Now we have an unmitigated disaster.

In addition, Obama´s military advisers warned him many months ago of the extreme danger of ISIS, and as always he ignored them. It would have been much easier early on to completely obliterate those murderous barbarians when they first began their death marches. Obama, the too cool for school guy and a stubborn radical ideologue got us into this. Sadly for us and the rest of the world, this is the danger of electing a Democrat. This is what they do and how they behave. Obama just happens to be the worst one we have ever had.

He hates the US, hates doing this strike, but he knows the Christians of the US are watching him closely. Democrats, some of them are Christians, so he must act, screaming, kicking and with a mush mouth delivery of why. Sickening.

Barry looked so shifty announcing
his humanitarian war in Iraq.
He could not look into the camera-his eyes darted left and then darted right and never once did he look the American people in the eye.
He kept puffing out his cheeks and he was clearly uncomfortable playing the role of Commander in Chief.
The common them from the Obama media was how
" everyone " was caught by surprise
by the latest ISIS move.
C´mon.
Everything catches Barry by surprise because he´s either on the golf course with Reggie Love or he´s sleeping.
This is just a tune up for Afghanistan.

Would be nice if this country had a coherent short term and long term strategy in the war with Islam. Islam is at war worldwide, and especially with us.

Have to doubt any kind of strategy will come from Obama. First, he is sympathetic towards the Muslims, and then he does a 180 and attacks them.

Word gets out that Muslims are exterminating Christians around the world. Lots of people in both parties really dislike this. Are Obama´s actions CYA? Does Obama think this gets the democrats more votes? Does Obama even have a clue?

It is absolutely critical that the US support its allies around the world. We cannot fight Islam alone. Doubt the war can be won militarily or economically though both are important. People worldwide need to realize what Islam is like which means governments need to speak out against it and show what Islam is doing. Islam supports robbery, slavery, and murder.

He has "turned a blind eye" for years.

He has turned a blind eye as churches have been blown to smithereens, while mane and women were butchered, beheaded, executed, while mosques of differing sects, destroyed.

And all this time, every dang day, he has gone about his merry way, dividing and irritating the citizens of our Republic.

Many excellent comments here.

The harsh criticism flung by US President Barack Obama´s administration against Israel this week for a building project in Jerusalem is only a sign of things to come, according to Attorney Yoram Sheftel. [Snip] Writing in his weekly Hebrew column for Arutz Sheva, Sheftel wrote "Obama doesn´t want a nuclear Iran, but he wants an Iran that can enrich uranium and threaten Israel--it´s one of the most hostile regimes for Israel that wants Iran to threaten us, because today we have no more bitter enemy in the western world than the United States."

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak. [Snip] But the overall feeling of the sparsely attended afternoon press conference was one of complacency, with the Obama administration´s top Ebola spear-catchers saying over and over that Americans have nothing to fear even though the government has no plans to close airports to planes originating in at the disease´s ground-zero.

Health officials have admitted their response to the potential Ebola outbreak in Texas has been ‘rocky’--amid growing concern over how a patient with the virus was able to get through customs, was initially turned away from hospital with painkllers and Hazmat teams then took five days to properly quarantine his relatives.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty.

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

Hospitals across the country have been warned by the CDC about care methods regarding the Ebola virus, it has emerged. The CDC has published both an ´Algorithm for Evaluation of the Returned Traveler,´ as well as a ´Checklist for Patients Being Evaluated for Ebola Virus Diseasee (EVD) in the United States.´ Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan arrived in Dallas on September 20 to visit and fell ill a few days later. His sister, Mai Wureh, identified him as the infected man in an interview with The Associated Press. A Dallas emergency room sent Duncan home last week, even though he

A friend of Texas Ebola patient, Thomas Duncan, who saw the sick man the day he was taken into hospital apparently ´vomiting wildly´ has described his family´s ordeal in isolation. And, shockingly, three days after CDC officials visited him in the family´s apartment, 43-year-old Aaron Yah revealed he had not received an order to remain indoors or any advice on how to cope. Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Mr Yah said: ´The CDC came on Tuesday, the day it was confirmed Thomas had Ebola. They told me that the children should not go to school until 17 October.

Climate change is even deadlier than ebola according to the editor of one of the world´s oldest and most distinguished medical journals. Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal; established 1840), claims in her latest editorial: Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions. And action is needed now. Not all BMJ readers will necessarily agree with this assessment, Godlee concedes: When The BMJ started publishing articles on climate

Approaching half of all terrorist plots against Britain are still hatched in Afghanistan and Pakistan 13 years after British troops were sent to the country to destroy Al Qaeda, David Cameron revealed this morning. The Prime Minister, in Kabul on an unannounced visit to meet with the country’s new unity government, said Britain had ‘paid a very high price’ for liberating Afghanistan from the Taliban--with 453 British soldiers losing their lives. Mr Cameron claimed Britain and other allies had forced Al Qaeda out the region and the number of plots originating in the region had fallen. But he admitted the

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
