Who was Sec. of State back then?
Maybe that person should have done their job a little better, eh?
Powell or Rice?
Powell lied to the UN, obviously. But Rice rode the lie too.

He is intervening to support the Kurds not the devil worshipers. You think the USA should have a war with ISIS?
The Associated Press, citing senior U.S. officials, reported early Monday that the weapons were being provided to the Kurds. The officials did not specify which government agency is supplying the weapons, but one did say it is not the Pentagon. However, the officials did say that the Obama administration is close to approving a plan for the Pentagon to arm the Kurds.

I put the blame where I think it belongs. Fair enough?
I can understand Obama's (America's) reluctance to get involved in Iraqi (or any other middle-eastern) affairs. We just got out of a decade's long war there, and most American's do not wish to go back. Obama has made it clear that air strikes alone will not resolve this problem; that it's ultimately up to Iraqi leadership to haqndle it. Aside from responding to the genocide taking place, what the US is doing is trying to protect Americans that may be in danger if ISIS makes any further progress into Kurdish territory. There are some American diplomats located there.
Are you suggesting we should have gone into Syria, or where-ever, long ago to eliminate ISIS? I don't get where you're coming from. What is your solution to the problem? Impeach Obama? You apparently have inside information.
You know, it's a very violent, chaotic world out there right now. There are atrosities going on all over the world. The US must pick and choose which one's are appropriate for us to meddle into. We can't put out EVERY fire in the world. You can sit around turning everything Obama does into some kind of conspiracy, but that doesn't solve anything. It just an uninformed opinion that gives you something to post on this board.
These atrocities have gone on for months unmitigated. All of it has been covered in the news, are you saying that Obama was unaware of it until recently?
I think the rabbit hole is deeper, I think obama is afraid, I think his inaction and reluctance even now suggest that his actions are governed by outside influences.
He had to be dragged into this kicking and screaming...
