You guys know the definition of insanity.
There is never going to be a good outcome for us.
Let somebody else stop them.
We just can't seem to do anything right in the Region.

Obama, although he is sounding reasonable about making Malaki include the Sunnis in power before he attacks, doesn’t understand something: he has to do something about this…real soon
He is playing coy so he could have leverage with Malaki
Obama knows dam well he can’t let some barbarians take over Iraq after the US used all that power to take it over. It would be the greatest foreign policy disaster in American History
Colin Powell said it to the jack ass George Bush: “Once you invade Iraq you own it.”
I was totally against the Iraq invasion but since the US did it they ARE OBLIGATED TO FIGHT AND SAVE THE COUNTRY!
You can’t equate this to Vietnam since America didn’t invade and destabalize the country.
“Abu Duaa was connected to the intimidation, torture and
murder of local civilians in Qaim”, says a Pentagon document.
“He would kidnap individuals or entire families, accuse them,
pronounce sentence and then publicly execute them.”
Why such a ferocious individual was deemed fit for release in
2009 is not known...
(CNSNews.com) - Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) a message back on January 21 in which he flatly stated his group’s intention to march on Baghdad and move into “direct contact with the U.S.
“Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct we will be in direct confrontation, and
Baghdadi said. “So watch, for we are with you, watching.”
When the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing February 5 on al Qaida’s resurgence in Iraq, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iran and Iraq Brett McGurk presented written testimony explaining
the agenda of ISIS (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,
or ISIL), and discussed Baghdadi’s audio message to Americans.

I gave my vote to Obama on his first term, in hopes that he was true and honest.
Sadly by the end of his first term I knew, right away that he was nothing but closet muslim trying to screw our nation and payback to his buddies in the middle east.
Sadly many people still doesn't get it, we do have a chameleon in the white house. He is ruling by executive action and his mighty pen, but I wonder why we have a congress that has not stood against him and is just acting like lame ducks.

I have a question.
Isn't ISIS part of the same group that the US has aided in Syria?
