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.

We remember. But how many people reading these article, hearing the news, seeing these comments would know what we are saying, would understand the crises?

And an 87-year-old billionaire from Spain might argue she has the strongest claim. For the Duchess of Alba is said to be one of two main contenders from the Stuart dynasty, whose Scottish monarchs transformed the country during their time in power. While First Minister Alex Salmond insists Queen Elizabeth II would remain as head of state after a Yes vote, others are not so sure. Some Scots look back fondly in the history books to their Stuart kings, the first of whom was Robert II in 1371. By the 17th century, they ruled all of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics revealed 2.02 million people were jobless between April and June--a fall of 468,000 on the same period in 2013. There are now 30.61 million people in work, 74,000 more than in February to April this year. The number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance has also fallen with fewer than a million receiving the benefit last month--the lowest level for six years.

I´ve been saying it for weeks--you can´t defeat Isil without putting boots on the ground. And now US General Martin Dempsey, the head of the American Armed Forces, has confirmed what anyone with a reasonable understanding of what is required to defeat Isil knows, that some form of Western ground forces will be needed if this threat is to be fully destroyed. [Snip] The campaign to destroy Isil will be more akin to how we approached the initial invasion of Afghanistan in 2001: Western forces working in conjunction with pro-Western allies such as the Northern Alliance--or France´s military intervention in

A British man spouts nonsense in front of a camera, does something incredibly stupid, becomes an internet video hit. It happens every couple of months, but never before in a way that’s done so much to impact policy as the “Isil” murder videos. Whether you want to or not, you can’t avoid the images of the beheadings of US journalists and UK aid workers in the last couple of weeks. The murderer, “Jihadi John”, as we’ve taken to calling him, is doubtless pleased with his notoriety, with the fact he´s graced the front pages of newspapers back in the UK.

Judging by facial expression and body language alone, I would guess that Alex Salmond´s private polling is telling him that he has lost. And if there is a "No" victory is by a small-ish margin, that will be the best possible outcome for him personally. As he says himself, this decision will be forever. There will be no repetition (mercifully) of this ugly experiment in mob initimidation and bare-faced lying. [Snip] But if he wins, as he must by now be suspecting if he is not utterly delusional, he will have to face the truly terrible consequences of his reckless

A British man convicted and jailed for Islamic terrorism in 1999 has, in a lengthy and indulgent feature with Sky News, blamed violent computer games for “dehumanised” young Britons going abroad to fight for the Islamic state. The twelve minute report – which showed at regular intervals yesterday on Sky News – features a number of recorded interviews with British Muslims expressing their opinions on the reasons for the radicalisation of young muslims. One, a rapper, blames ‘injustice’ and cites Muslims in the UK who are so distrustful of the government and media they don’t even believe the political executions

ISTANBUL - Turkey would welcome senior figures from Egypt´s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood after they were asked to leave Qatar under pressure from other Gulf Arab states, Turkish media quoted President Tayyip Erdogan as saying late on Monday. A senior Brotherhood official based in London said on Saturday that Qatar had asked seven senior figures from the movement to leave the country after its neighbors pressed it to stop backing the Islamists. Senior Brotherhood figures would be welcome to come to Turkey if they wished to do so, Turkish television stations quoted Erdogan as telling reporters on his plane back from an official

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their ‘exclusive´ and I´ll give

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
