Bombing Iraq Again

We’re at war in Iraq again. In an effort to prevent the brutal genocide of the Yazidi religious minority by ISIS, we began dropping humanitarian supplies on the refugees. That has now escalated to bombing of ISIS artillery. Right now, Obama is promising the engagement will be “limited”. We will see.

    I shudder to think what will happen if one of our planes gets shot down. I have no doubt that our military will not be allowed to try to rescue him. And if ISIS gets their hands on our pilot(s), oh boy. For a guy who was going to fix the world he sure has mucked it up.

    Remember, Sterling Archer, AKA Duchess, is ISIS’ greatest asset and liability.

    Seriously, best of luck to anyone fighting there. Let’s keep our involvement in the air this time.

    I think dropping supplies on people to keep them from dying is fine. But I worry that this will quickly escalate as our interventions tend to. That’s what happened in Somalia, for example.

    Does this really count as at war with “Iraq” ???

    Given we’re just killing Islamist terrorists who are, as usual, International / supranational organisations with global agendas.

    Much like Cobra from GI:JOE, oddly enough.

    Yet again CM doesn’t grasp language.

    And also it’s really WEIRD that you someone remembered and even had the link to that post.

    Keep in mind I also said Romney was LIKE CATWOMAN btw.

    @AlexInCT I’ll admit someone it’s hard to not think maybe there’s something to this “Obama is a secret Islamist infiltrator” as his actions constantly vex one. But let’s try not to attribute to malice what is more likely to be stupidity.

    Also that movie sucked… at least the first GI:JOE live movie was like a live cartoon. Michael Bay should have done GI:JOE seeing as. ah I’m ranting.

    Poosh,

    Nobody is that stupid, ineffective, and destructive without forethought. Not even fucking Biden or Pelosi: two of the greatest idiots the universe produced. Even a fucking broken clock gets it right twice a day. But these people can’t get anything, I mean fucking absolutely anything, right. I am now convinced it is by design. And the evidence of how bad things are getting should serve to make my case with ease. The devastation and damage of their policies will be with us for generations. They have taken a great nation and in the span of 5 years turned it into a banana republic, both when it comes to the law and the economy, and they seem absolutely proud of that and want even more of the same shit.

    I used to attribute the massive chaos and destruction caused by Obama and the democrat party’s doings to the sheer stupidity of their beliefs and the fact that they were just used car salesmen out to rob people of as much as they could get away with, but the sheer amount of damage they have caused in a short 5 years is so overwhelming that I simply can’t see it being accidental anymore. These people are downright evil and criminal in everything they do, and my only consolation is that it will be the very people that put and kept them in power that will be made to suffer the worse for the evil they have wrought.

    I have a slightly different take. Yes, it is by design, but where you might think the goal is destroy America, in the spirit of fundamental change and his world view, a constrained America would make the world a better place, or so he thinks. We saw it with his world apology tour, we see it when over and over he describes his two proudest international accomplishments as getting us out of both Iraq and Afghanistan. He does not understand the power vacuum dynamic, a more sedate restrained America will only empower the rest of the world and provide a more fertile ground for their own development and well being. But they must find their own way and not look to America for support, thus he is slow to act on anything, leads from behind, and it suffers paralysis from analysis.

    They have taken a great nation and in the span of 5 years turned it into a banana republic,

    You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, he is just warming up. This morning Charles Krauthammer had a piece describing the flurry of executive decisions coming down the pike for the sole purpose of daring the opposition to impeach, Ah, hell I know how CM loves Charles so here is the whole thing;

    These people are downright evil

    That word is more apt for those Jihad cocksuckers in the ME and their murderous, raping, genocidal ways. Obama, in his own twisted way, probably thinks he is paving the way for a better America, more fair, more inclusive, and more attuned to the common good in a world view kinda way.

    , and my only consolation is that it will be the very people that put and kept them in power that will be made to suffer the worse for the evil they have wrought.

    I don’t see that happening at all. Those wanting more free shit are still getting it, and will still get it in the future since the welfare state he is creating is turning into a leviathan. The race hustlers are more empowered then ever, hard to see when they will get marginalized. Same with those big government advocates, they have all the momentum and still wield the power. Taxes, regulations still out of control, those Obama supporters are not being hurt one bit.
