Translation for Obama’s options on Iraq

Obama said he is going to consider options for Iraq. Let me translate.

Option one, you close down the US Embassy and flee today.
Option two, you close down the US Embassy and flee tomorrow.

Today’s speech was vintage Obama: more words, more talk, and no solutions. It is up to the Iraqis to solve their problems? Then why Mr. President did you violate the War Powers Act and provide military support to islamists in Libya?

Obama says, “We should look at the situation carefully” — well, what red lines does he need? It would have been better for Obama to say nothing — or maybe it doesn’t matter because in giving a speech, he said nothing anyway.

Is the Syrian Civil War overflowing into Iraq? Obama responded, “that’s been happening for some time.” Yes, Obama, it is a long-term problem, one which you created and could have been avoided.

Colonel, I am sorry that this country has come to the point that its so-called President is spitting in the face of every OIF/OND veteran and their family members. As a family member of an OIF veteran I am deeply offended by this POS in the white house. To acknowledge him as POTUS is almost adhering to the raghead enemy, giving them aid and comfort. As much as we pray and hope not I am afraid that within the week we shall se the Green Zone turn into a cluster f— that will make May 1975 Saigon and14 November 1979… Read more »

As an OIF veteran I am pissed that we have sit back and let these insurgents regain control of Iraq. I may not have been patrolling those cities and kicking in doors but I spent 7 months supporting the operations to liberate the people of Iraq and now our worthless president and his administration is going to sit back and do nothing. All the effort and lives we put into the people and Country must not mean anything to them. It meant the world to me to have a part in it and now it seems like it was for… Read more »

The Iraqi’s threw us out when they wouldn’t renew the SOFA. Don’t blame Obama. And we never should have been there in the first place. Look at the mess created when Hussein was knocked off. All based on a WMD lie.

Most of your anger should be directed and Dumbya Bush and the neocons who talked into invading Iraq on a pack of lies and the neocons’ delusional, utopian dream of ending the 1200 year old war between Sunnis and Shiite.

Hey moron…….. Democrat Quotes on Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.” –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998 “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.” –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998 “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here.

Hey moron….

None of these say invasion is our only/ last resort. We could have continued to contain Saddam with targeted bombing, sanctions, and enforcement of the no-fly zones, as Clinton did. Bush could have made the sanctions stricter and increased enforcement of them. Instead, he made the illogical argument that he couldn’t get a coalition to abide by/ enforce sanctions, but he could get one to invade Iraq with the very high probability of a long, deadly, civil war resulting, also serving as a training camp for terrorists.

The truth of the matter is that Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction ended up in Syria. Where else did Assad get the chemical weapons?

WestPoint78

Assad and Hussein hated each other. There is no way he would give any chemical weapons to Syria for “safe keeping”. That’s like saying the North Koreans would give their nukes to South Korea to avoid getting hammered by the US. Never would happen. Ever.

President of Iraq created this situation when he wouldn’t renegotiate the troop agreement between our 2 countries back in 2011. His armed forces much like most South Vietnamese troops let the Americans do the hard fighting. As soon as we leave chaos starts. As much as I don’t like Obama, let Iraqi troops get off their butts and fight.

Reba

You know, President Bush made mistakes just like every previous President has. Obama has been in six years and in the six years what he has done, is on him. What President Bush did in the eight years he held office, is on him. So the sooner people open their eyes and quit blaming someone else for the mistakes this President makes, the better off we will be.

Oh, and that NEVER happened under Bush: “Readers asked us whether it’s true that under Bush, “there were 13 attacks on various embassies and consulates around the world, (and) 60 people died.” We turned to the Global Terrorism Database, a project headquartered at the University of Maryland. The database documents terrorist attacks around the world going back to the 1970s, and experts told us it is the best resource available for this fact-check. We searched the database for descriptions between January 2001 and January 2009 that included the term “U.S. embassy.” We supplemented these with a few other attacks listed… Read more »

This president should have been reigned in before he even got a second term. Some people say that he is a dumb person I beg to differ. This man knows exactly what he is doing and this is exactly what he wants for this Country. He hates America always has. He is a sympathizer to the enemy.

Yes, they have been fighting each other for a very long time. but what you don’t realize is barry has an agenda, he works for the Saudi’s. If you had bothered to read the links I gave you, you would understand better what is going on.
barry is an instigator. They create the unrest and let the civil war rage, the islamists will take over the country and the Caliphate is on it’s way to fruition.
It isn’t rocket science Raf.
barry sends weapons and money to the islamist’s and they wage the civil wars

Rafael X
Guest

The unrest was created as soon as the man that was keeping all these factions in check was removed from power. Saddam Hussein was a dictator but was the only secular leader in the middle-east. Bush removed him and dismantled the Iraqi army. That is what is causing the unrest the Shiite where put in power and now the Sunnis are coming back at them. We should have never opened that Pandora box in the first place and it’s on Bush. And yes I’m blaming him.

The coalition in ’91 defined the terms of the war and 41 abided by them. Clinton didn’t do jack as far as making sure the resolutions were adhered to. So GW dealt with it.

So you tell me why the difference.
