Iraq’s fall will rival killing fields of Pol Pot

It is amazing to me how liberal progressives want to blow off the chaos in Iraq and the emergence of a regional caliphate as it happens under the watch of Obama the Weak.

Funny, it seems liberals fail to realize we still have troops in the Balkans, when their other president emeritus, Bill Clinton, said we would only be there for a year. But we also have had troops in Germany and Japan for quite some time, resulting from wars begun under the watch of a Democrat president, Franklin Roosevelt (of course, we did win that one). We also have troops still on the Korean peninsula after a war under the watch of a Democrat president, Harry Truman. And yes, Democrat presidents got us engaged in Vietnam and it was Johnson’s bungling and the American liberal media message of defeatism and propaganda that led to the scenes of Saigon.

There is no doubt we are watching something happening in Iraq that is far more horrific than the fall of Saigon and will rival the killing fields of Pol Pot.

So what makes liberal progressive socialists dismiss Iraq — and eventually Afghanistan? Easy to answer: it was a Republican president.

And so because it was “Bush’s War,” they love to say it should be abandoned and all efforts were in vain. Al-Qaida has been decimated and is on the run — yep, they’re running right towards Baghdad.

There are those who believe Obama is a Muslim. Only he can answer that question — but knowing his penchant for lying, who will ever know? What is for certain is that Obama’s failed foreign policies in the Middle East have afforded a resurgence of Islamic terrorism. Perhaps that is where Obama’s loyalties lie? I can think of no other reason.

Obama has sided with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. He has advanced Islamist forces in Libya and destabilized that country. He has sat back and watched the rise of a barbaric terrorist group in Nigeria. He has allowed Iran to continue its march towards producing a nuclear device. And now, he has allowed an al- Qaida group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), to overtake major portions of Iraq. As well, he has set free the senior management of the enemy while they enemy is still fighting our troops.

As Investor’s Business Daily reports, “Obama and his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, have been so busy patting themselves on the back for their foreign policy brilliance that they haven’t seemed to notice that their Mideast policies — from the disastrous Arab Spring, to encouraging Libya’s revolt, to Hosni Mubarak’s ouster in Egypt, to drawing a “red line” in Syria on chemical weapons use, to negotiating with a soon-to-be-nuclear Iran — are all in extreme disarray, threatening not just the region but the world.”

I seem to remember just over a year ago when Obama declared the “War on Terror” was over, and maintained al-Qaida and the terrorist groups allied with it in Iraq and Afghanistan were on a “path to defeat.”

And yes, he has allowed this by his feckless, empty rhetoric and inaction. What could he have done? He could have acted like an American president and showed strength and resolve. He could have listened to generals and not Valerie Jarrett. A residual force in Iraq serving as an outer cordon would have well served the security situation there, and we did not need to acquiesce to al-Maliki — but that would have taken courage and strength.

The rules are always different for Democrats and progressive socialists, but the truth is playing out. A new Islamist state may be taking shape before our eyes from an enemy that we once had on the run. And in ancient military history, the pursuit phase was always most devastating to the enemy. Drones don’t defeat an enemy — it requires crushing their will. But we don’t do that anymore because, well, we’re just too nice.

The world is a far more dangerous place because of Barack Hussein Obama — and anyone disagreeing is delusional. And just watch for all the “Blame Bush Derangement Syndrome” comments, since after all, it was “Bush’s War,” — so predictable. But unfortunately the return of Islamic terrorism under Obama was as well.

Communism and Islam shaped young Obama’s view of America. You may be aware of Saul Alinsky a communist / Marxist supporter who trained Barrack Obama as a communist radical recruit, code name community organizer. Why would Barrack Obama want to be part of an organization that was clearly focused on the destruction of America? The answer can be found in his childhood and people in his life during those all important years that shaped his views of America. After his father deserted him Obama was raised in Indonesia a Muslin country. He attended school and mosque, was taught the Koran… Read more »

Well : Is it To late for the Americam people to take Action .? Where do ( and Who ) do we turn to now ?? Are you forget The democrats voted for war under bush . Including Senators :: Clinton & Obama .. The only way America will survive this turmoil is To Hold Obama accountable for crimes and imprison him .. Then we can get rid of Eric Holder as well putting him in prison . Who will lead us ?? I believe the people are ready for A revution ! We can’t wait 2 + more yrs.

Impeachment will never happen. Obama will not go anywhere, until all Departments that have been armed are arrested and taken down, all at the same time. Once they are removed, Holder, Reid and the rest of them can be arrested.

I wish they were ready.. Unfortunately there are to many out their that would settle for his America if it keeps giving them handouts and on top of that we have the uninformed majority that does not have a clue as to what they are really loosing.

so I guess this warmongering idiot would send American troops to every flash point in the world? the American people are clearly war weary and tired of being involved with distant wars that do nothing but bury our children. its pundits like this that give conservatives such a bad name, if only he would think before he sent this out he could save himself the embarrassment of looking like an ill-informed moron with little sense of reality

and you are a fool to support this blowhard moron

Brigadier

Yet you support a treasonous Muslim sympathizer. You are the moron cuz all you can do is insult people vs. debating FACTS.

Chris Erickson
Guest

your lack of respect for the lives of American soldiers is a disgrace and of course you have presented zero facts likely because you don’t know any

Brigadier
Guest

In my experience, ‘people’ like you who accuse others of something, is this case a ‘lack of respect for American soldiers’ lives’, are in fact the ones that are guilty of that exact action, and are hiding behind their accusations.

Chris Erickson
Guest

clearly you are very inexperienced then unless its slandering someone from behind an internet profile and presenting zero “facts” as you say

You should talk, Christine. You aren’t worthy to wash the likes of Col. West’s jock strap. You talk about lack of respect for those who served……. Go back to your mommy’s basement.

please this guy is a joke with little perspective. just another officer that failed to make general and cares more about being a pundit than safeguarding the lives of the men and women in his command. grow up and present some “facts” you bloated troll

ok neither of those have anything to do with sending American soldiers to an endless conflict with no chance for mission success or termination. think, I know its hard for u but try before you respond

Brigadier

Sorry, Chrissy, but your Prom Queen in Chief is the one who let the Taliban and Al Qaeda back into the game when they were on the ropes. So who is drawing out the conflicts? And this is common knowledge, except for brainwashed drones like yourself. Your mommy called – your Pop-Tarts and warm milk are ready.
Excuse me while I wipe this pile off the bottom of my boots.

Chris Erickson

and for the record I didn’t vote for the current potus nor am I a fan. this is about the needless loss of lives for wars that have no mission and cant be won

Chris Erickson
Guest

“common knowledge” is that a euphemism for what u want to believe because its supports your previously ill conceived notions. anyone that thinks any American president is going to snap is fingers and make those nutjobs over there go away with guns and tanks has no understanding of that part of the world and its history. you need to try thinking critically and stop lapping up what the pundits want you to think. these aholes are putting American soldiers at risk for nothing other than their egos

Brigadier
Guest
Chris Erickson
Guest

don’t u get it? this isn’t about your hatred for the current potus, this is about respecting the lives of our soldiers by not wasting their efforts on fruitless conflicts. they deserve it they are the greatest armed forces this world has ever seen

Brigadier
Guest

Yet YOU are the one defending Obama who is pissing on the graves of those soldiers that died over there by releasing 5 AQ generals fr one Muslim sympathizing traitor. Who doesn’t respect the men and women in uniform, Christy?

Chris Erickson

So what you’re saying is, we should have ignored the sovereign government of Iraq when they said they didn’t want a “residual force” of American troops to remain? Abandon even the barest pretense that the was was anything other than a conquest and occupation of Iraq?

As to the unknown quantity of Mr.Obama’s faith, I have only one observation to offer up. Watch the footage of his face when Bob Bergdahl offered his little Arabic benediction while appearing at the White House, and answer me this – when in the last several years have you seen that sour puss of his light up like that? His reaction was autonomic reflex and came straight from the heart, before it could be edited or suppressed. Draw your own conclusions.

people in the Middle East hate America because it has interfered in their politics, invaded their lands under false pretences and openly supports rebels and terrorists. America should stay out of their countries and let them continue on with their 1400 year war, Sunni verses Shia, which will never end for as long as Islam exists.

audieho
Guest

Oh, please. When they were abducting American merchants in the late 1700s, I am sure it was because we were interfering in their politics then, too? Ever hear of the Barbary Pirates? I suggest you look them up. The reason the Middle East hates America, is the same reason they hate Europeans and other Asians – we aren’t Muslim. As soon as we grasp that concept and make it evident we comprehend, we just might be able to get their attention.

At what point do we get a coalition of countries together to squash Islamic extremism? If we stopped pussy footing around and got together with other countries that have the same problem we wouldn’t be playing policeman to the world.

“squash Islamic extremism?”

I’m sorry I need to disabuse you of your optimism that there is a discernable, pragmatic distinction here. An Islamic extremist wants to kill or convert all the nonbelievers… while an Islamic moderate wants just the extremists to kill or convert all the nonbelievers.

Between Saigon and Iraq, and between Cambodia and Iraq, however, there really isn’t a moral equivalence. The South Vietnamese actually were appreciative of American help and actually were abandoned. In Cambodia, the population was controlled by a strongman who decided to murder, but the population didn’t have a say in putting Pol Pot in power. By contrast, the Iraqi population did put the inept government that rejected the proposed SOFA in power that would have helped to maintain law and order in a historically fractured region of the world (by contrast, those countries in Indochina are largely along cultural boundaries).… Read more »
