We may not like it, but Isis and Iraq
remind us that we need America

God bless America. Following the announcement last night by Barack Obama that the United States is about to resume military operations in Iraq, it appears the Yazidi will not now be killed with their families. There is also hope that Iraq’s other minorities may face some form of protection from their persecutors. It’s an announcement that won’t be welcomed by everyone. The old charges of US adventurism and imperialism will be trotted out. And with some historic justification. Iraq is after all the scene of the United States most catastrophic foreign policy misjudgement. “It’s not the job of the US to act

It would be best for the world if America was its policeman as long as libtards aren´t in power. When libtards are in power their hubris, arrogance, ignorance, indoctrination and bad moral character (as well as bad personal habits) make for a bad combination as far as the world is concerned - just look and the Clintoon and Otard years.

#1, you might be confusing The Telegraph with some of the left-wing newspapers read by Britons, particularly The Guardian. The basically conservative Telegraph has a much higher rate of readership than do any of the lefty newspapers, which should tell you something. You´ll find the occasional left-wing article which the conservative readers tear to shreds but there are many Britons who have good things to say about the United States. The T would never have fawned over Obama, too rational for that.

Hodges is a lefty. I forget how long he´s been at the T--maybe as long as a year? But I´ve noticed he´s sliding somewhat to the right lately.

I think you´d enjoy some of American expat Janet Daley´s columns. She spares no contempt when writing about Obama & Co.

Please forgive second post. Take your BP meds before delving into the comments after the article. There are a lot of idiots who are too young, haven´t learned history or don´t remember that we came to Britain´s rescue in WWII. Perhaps they would prefer to be speaking German instead of English.

I agree with Poster 5. The comments indicate lo-fos even in G.B.! How sad!

I nearly choked when Obama, last night, said," God Bless America"! I thought for sure he´d say, "Allah". He is a hypocrite and he was probably forced into this decision and dragged by the heels. Coward! It´s the USmilitary that is in command!

The creation of Iraq was one of BRITAIN´s most "catastrophic foreign policies". The gift of some middle eastern land to reward a friendly sheik, land holding several mutually irreconcilable ethnic and religious groups, mainly, Christians, Shiite Muslims(in the South) Sunni Muslims (in central Iraq), Sunni Kurds (in the North). The attempt to cobble this mess into a Kingdom is what led to the problems of today.

Somehow the Brits need to pick their sorry selves off the socialist floor and become relevant. Sorry, but I´m no longer willing for our military to stand in for our generally useless Euro/NATO allies. Start spending on your own defense, maybe even a little more offense. The Argies are going to clean Brit clocks over the Maldives soon enough.

Errmm.... the Maldives (in the Indian Ocean) might be an archipelago too far for Kirchner & Co.

The Malvinas, however, which we and our British cousins know as the Falklands, might be heading for a reboot.

Iran´s Deputy Chief of Staff has said that soldiers from the Islamic Republic were operating "in the field" together with Palestinian terrorist groups. Speaking to a group of senior military officers in Tehran on Saturday, Major General Gholam Ali Rashid appraised the extensive support Iran was providing for its proxies throughout the region. "Some of our commanders are in the field to give military advice to the Iraqi army, Lebanon´s Hezbollah and the Palestinian resistance movement," he said, according to the semi-official Fars News. Iran has long been a key sponsor of terrorism against Israel, providing funding and arms to a wide

The support of Parliament for British participation in air strikes in northern Iraq is welcome but leaves crucial questions unanswered. The most serious flaw in the international response to the Islamic State threat is the failure to see Iraq and Syria requiring a common military and political strategy. The Islamic State terrorists have, effectively, abolished the international border between these two countries. To some extent this has been recognised by the United States, which has launched air strikes against terrorist targets in both countries. These air strikes, over a period of weeks, are likely to have a serious degrading effect on the terrorist

Air strikes in Iraq: the battle

There is a sense of relief across the political spectrum that Britain is finally doing something in Iraq. It was impossible to tolerate the advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) any longer, and now the UK finds itself part of an international effort with parameters of action that, the public is assured, will not lead to long-term troop presence or nation-building. Thanks in part to a rigorous parliamentary debate, the British people understand why they are in Iraq somewhat better than they did in 2003. [Snip] But what will happen next? It is obvious that Mr Cameron would have preferred Britain to have joined the wider

There are two fairly obvious ways that David Cameron might present himself this week in his last party conference speech before the general election. [Snip] By calling for a united stand against the real enemy of the values we all share as a nation, Mr Cameron could make a few of his domestic political enemies look like trivial distractions at a time of danger. Last, and certainly not least, this is a stance in which he is palpably sincere and eloquent. He truly believes that Britain should be actively engaged in the fight against terrorism, and can speak to that effect with impressive force. Yes, there is a lot to be said for a “war leader” pitch.

Marine who disappeared in Iraq ten

A U.S. Marine who vanished from his unit in Iraq and later wound up in Lebanon for eight years will face trial on desertion and other charges, the military said Friday. Maj. Gen. William D. Beydler has referred 34-year-old Cpl. Wassef Hassoun for a general court-martial on charges of desertion, larceny and destruction of government property, according to a news release from the Marines. No date has been set for Hassoun´s trial at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, where he is being held. The case began in June 2004, when Hassoun disappeared from a base in Fallujah, Iraq.

Determined Kurdish forces have been striking back against advancing ISIS militants in a besieged town on the Syrian-Turkish border. In a dramatic firefight taking place this evening, the forces could be seen advancing onto the ridgeline occupied by ISIS extremists near the Kurdish town of Kobani. Dozens of Kurdish spectators gathered just metres away to cheer on the fighters in a chorus of deafening shouts and applause, as red flares from tracer bullets propelled across the darkening sky. Footage of the live firefight was filmed from the Turkish side of the embattled border, which has been under attack from ISIS extremists for the

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president.

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
