It appears the Iraq forces didn't want to fight. Doesn't look good for them to ask for help.

Let that country do what it wants........if the people want Islamic overloards let them have it.....

I believe that's what they call democracy.
Of course our government has no interest in democracy, only in spreading other oligarchical controlled republics that are sympathetic to us, our corporations, banks, and oil companies.

No the politicians want to return to Iraq......

The American people are tired of it, they are tired of war, they are tired of our men and women coming home in boxes.

If they dont come home in boxes they come home injured either physicall or mentally, and the damn Government System of healthcare set up to TAKE CARE OF these men and women pushes them to the side and leaves them to suffer....

the PEOPLE do not want this........AMERICA doesnt want this.....the politicians DO....

Worse things have been going on in Africa for many years between the Muslims and Christians. Why aren't we policing that? Because that's not really what its all about. Its about putting an administration in office there that is friendly to us and Israel. We don't go running into Africa because they don't produce a large amount of oil, and they aren't a threat to Israel.

we aren't policing Africa because that is the one place in the world that makes the Middle East seem sane.

Yes but the administration has recently been courting Nigeria-which also has oil-and extremists I would not discount further misadventures happening in Africa in the near future.

No, we secure our own damn borders, we bring our men and women home to protect this piece of land, and we protect our own......


So what are yous going to do when the first shot is fired at Jerusalem? Sit back and watch the Jews get slaughtered also? This is where it's heading, you do understand that, don't you?


Israel constantly brags about how tough their military is so let them prove it by defending themselves.

And so?

Is the US expected to do everything with no regard to its interests, in stark contrast to the actions of every other nation (outside Northern Europe) whose foreign policy is nearly always identified with completely selfish self-interest?

And actually today, Africa does produce a substantial amount of oil and is where capitalist oil producers can work---they're shut out of big mideast producers which have nationalized, monopoly oil companies.

Eventually we will see having gone into the middle east we should have stayed occupied all country's weed out the fantaics and use the natural resource as war debt payment make them proxys plant a Walmart and mcdondals pave roads and infrastructure that is after we slaughter the majority of the fanatics. But that is my opinion

How much are they willing to pay per strike
No more freebies

Also just a note, it doesn't seem that the Iraqis in military positions put up much resistance, Bagdad seems to be a little different though.

I'd imagine what will make the biggest difference is now that Isis has some of the largest oil fields under their control,
if they can keep them operating and supplying oil, then there will be no need to bomb them from the U.S. standpoint.
As long as the oil flows its all good.
It was nice to nation build, that was fun and all, but apparently Islamist don't believe in sepperation of church and state.
Sharia it is!
Have a happy Jihad M.E.


oh that is until you try something here
then of course All Your Ass To Be Turned To Glass

Think of the fine art made from nuked dessert sands beutiful

I dont like the idea of going back into Iraq . but it might be better now than latter.


ISIS is looking to build a caliphate. Its a big deal to Arabs and Muslims the glory days of the caliphate ( ruled by Muslims governed by shira law and prepare for war with the infidels ) . Some groups want a global caliphate.


Shortly after Muhammad this is the caliphate . 700 ad is this what they want and are we willing to let them have it ?





If it starts rolling it could get messy real quick.

They have planes let them do it. There is no need for more American taxpayer money to be wasted on Iraq.


Except it will be spent. A little now or a lot later.

US President Barack Obama has told Congressional leaders he does not need lawmakers' approval for any action in Iraq, the top Senate Republican says




Experts say Mr Obama has several options, including citing the Authorisation for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) against al-Qaeda and its associated forces passed by Congress in 2001; the 2002 AUMF that led to the invasion of Iraq; and his own powers as commander-in-chief.

Last year, the president abandoned plans for punitive military strikes in Syria following a deadly chemical weapons attack once it became clear that Congress would not give its backing.

Administration officials say the president may be able to act unilaterally in Iraq because its government has requested US air strikes against ISIS, which seized the second city of Mosul last week and is advancing southwards towards Baghdad.

Iraq has formally asked for the US to use air strikes against ISIS.


It might be a good idea.

But it may not happen because the game thats being played is bigger than what the msm shows.
