It's being reported that over 90,000 Iraqi military have deserted rather than face off with only a few thousand militants.
I believe Kirkuk is the oil town. It looks like the Kurds, the only ones with gonads, are already in Kirkuk.

Mexico’s illegals laws tougher than Arizona’s

Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.
The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” violate Mexican law, are not “physically or mentally healthy” or lack the “necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents.
“This sounds like the kind of law that a rational nation would have to protect itself against illegal immigrants — that would stop and punish the very people who are violating the law,” said Rep. Steve King of Iowa, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration, citizenship, refugees, border security and international law.

Of course Mexico benefits by sending their citizens to the United States. So why don't Republicans do something about it instead of complaining. Why didn't the two shrubs do something about the problem? Republicans are always passing the blame.
California at least tried to stem the tide in 1994 by passing Proposition 187. Republicans do nothing. Most of the nonemergency care for illegal immigrants was authorized by the Legislature in the 1980s. Why didn't Bush do something?
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1982 that the Constitution forbids school districts to turn away children who are illegal immigrants. And federal law requires emergency rooms to treat everyone, regardless of citizenship. Why didn't Bush do something?
Studies have shown that "illegal immigrants, who tend to be poorer and have more children than average, use more in public services than they contribute in taxes." So, again, why didn't Bush do something?
Republicans love to whine and complain when a Democrat is in office but never take responsibilitiy for the failure of their party to address the issue. Until such time as Republicans are willing to step up to the plate, you people need to shut up.
Democrats explain their poor governance on the basis that the last guy did it too. LOL

But you said we shouldn't, so I guess you feel the same about Iraq now.
There was no Civil War in Iraq. They didn't greet us as liberators, they killed our troops.
In fact, you asshats went from war mongers to peaceniks as soon as Bush left office.
If Obama had been allowed to help oust Assad, Iraq would not be facing this Sunni threat today. But the Repugnant Congress stonewalled him and Syria turned into a major Sunni - Shia battleground---now moving into Iraq.
Saddam was preventing a Sunni-Shia Civil War. Stupid Bush thought all musliims were the same, and he brought about all the mess that has happened in the Middle East since his dumb invasion of Iraq.
It's all on Bush, and you wereand are a Bush supporter, Nobraina.
Obama should have apologized for Bill Clinton's blow job diversion attacking Iraq, obama speaking to the Muslim world you dumbass....

Clinton, inflaming, attacking, killing millions of Muslim people in Europe, Iraq and the planet... because of a Lewinsky, President Clinton signing the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 and every single democrat voted and said Saddam was an imminent threat and Saddam and his WMD's had to be removed you nitwit...

Kerry calls for Iraqis to 'come together,' as militants seize more territory
Published June 13, 2014FoxNews.com
1.6K
The Obama administration delivered a message Friday to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, as Al Qaeda-inspired militants took control of more cities on their march toward Baghdad, reportedly leaving a trail of decapitated government forces in their wake:
"Come together."
Secretary of State John Kerry delivered the message, putting the onus on the Maliki government to "put sectarian differences aside and to come together in unity to begin to be more representative and inclusive."
Republican lawmakers and military analysts are urging the administration to get more involved -- President Obama appeared to open the door Thursday to the possibility of air strikes, but no decision has been made. The president plans to make brief remarks on the situation in Iraq shortly before noon on the South Lawn.
Kerry said Friday the U.S. has "discussed a range of options including military action to provide support for the Iraqi government." He predicted "timely decisions" from the president.
Meanwhile, the Sunni militants continue their march through northern cities and towns, toppling fragile security forces and threatening to lay siege to the capital city of Baghdad.
Congressional Republicans say the Maliki government is far from blameless here, having stoked sectarian tensions by alienating the Sunni minority -- in turn fueling the insurgency -- but say U.S. intervention is needed.
"The Iraqi government is far from perfect," Rep. Ed Royce, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, R-Calif., said. "But if we don't want to see an Iraq with large swaths of territory under militant control, and we shouldn't, we should answer Iraqi requests to target these Al Qaeda terrorists with drone strikes."
Heavily armed ISIS forces (The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant/Syria) pushed Friday into a province northeast of Baghdad, capturing two towns there after having already toppled cities in the country¹s north.
Police officials said ISIS forces driving machine gun-mounted pickups entered two towns in Diyala province late Thursday -- Jalula, 80 miles northeast of Baghdad, and Sadiyah, 60 miles north of the Iraqi capital.
Iraqi soldiers abandoned their posts there without any resistance, the officials told The Associated Press.
There were reports that the main highway from the north to Baghdad was strewn with the decapitated bodies of government security forces, and that ISIS forces were driving and displaying captured armored vehicles.
We liberated Iraq twice.

Bush I and Bush II.

the Iraqi's are abandoning their posts. Bush left behind a toothless leader in al Maliki.He made things worse between Sunni and Kurds in Iraq and now Iraq will be partitioned into three regions, just what Bush was warned of before he invaded.

And you idiots supported him!! How's it feel to look so stupid??

NORAD: Fighter jets scrambled after Russian bombers spotted off California

Authorities say two F-22 fighter jets were scrambled after a pair of Russian bombers were spotted 50 miles off the coast of California earlier this week, Reuters reported, citing a NORAD spokesperson.

Major Beth Smith, of North American Aerospace Defense Command, said that the long-range Russian bombers never officially entered U.S. airspace when two NORAD fighter jets made visual contact with them.

The incident occurred about five hours after four Russian bombers and a refueling tanker were seen entering the so-called Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), airspace that extends about 200 miles from the U.S. coast. The Russian aircraft left the ADIZ after being identified by two fighters from the Alaskan NORAD region, Smith said.

Smith said the Russian planes' flight appeared to be part of a routine training mission, which Russian aircraft have carried out dozens of times in recent years in the ADIZ.

Obama reminded Democratic donors that “our future rests” on the success of people brought to the United States illegally as children, who would qualify for citizenship if Congress had passed the DREAM Act.

“About 30 to 40 percent of the kids in this school, by the way, are DREAM kids,” Obama said Wednesday evening.“You wouldn’t know it looking at them, because they are as American as apple pie.

Translation: the democrat party's ¨future rests¨ on the condition that the millions of illegal immigrants become well versed leftists.

U.S. weighs Iraq airstrikes, Obama says he won't send combat troops
By Barbara Starr and Tom Cohen, CNN
updated 12:19 PM EDT, Fri June 13, 2014

NEW: U.S. aircraft carrier heading to the Persian Gulf, source says
U.S. airstrikes could prove ineffective, planners say
ISIS lacks bona fide targets, could disperse fighters among civilians
[Adds breaking news update 12:11 p.m.]
President Barack Obama said Friday that the United States "will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq," but that he would be reviewing a range of other options to support the Iraqi government against a sweeping advance by militant fighters. Obama said unless Iraq fixes its internal political problems, short-term military help from the United States won't make much difference.
Obama added that any decision on U.S. military support for Iraq "is going to take several days," adding that "this is not going to happen overnight."
Obama also said the United States is not going to get involved militarily again in Iraq without assurances that the government there is working toward a political solution.
[Original story moved at 11:49 a.m.]
Momentum toward U.S. military support for Iraq's struggling government increased Friday, with Secretary of State John Kerry signaling a decision soon on how to help.
The White House later announced that President Barack Obama would make a statement on Iraq before departing on a trip to North Dakota.
"Given the gravity of the situation I would anticipate timely decisions from the President regarding the challenge," Kerry told a London conference when asked about this week's lightning advance by the militant Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, toward Baghdad.
He mentioned some initial moves, but stopped short of spelling out further steps that could include air strikes intended to slow the progress of militants and help the Iraqi military regain its equilibrium.
How can Obama counter ISIS threat? Iraq desperate for options against ISIS ISIS dividing Iraq along ethnic lines Obama: Not 'ruling out anything' on Iraq
"We have already taken some immediate steps, including providing enhanced aerial surveillance support to assist the Iraqis in this fight," Kerry said. "We have also ramped up shipments of military aid to Iraq since the beginning of the year."
Meanwhile, the United States plans to move the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush into the Persian Gulf in coming hours to provide Obama with options for possible airstrikes, a U.S. official told CNN on Friday, adding the move did not mean a final decision had been made.
No U.S. ground troops for now
While Obama said Thursday that his national security team was looking at "all options," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that ground troops weren't being contemplated for now.
ISIS fighters have seized Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, as part of an advance toward Baghdad that gave them control of large parts of the country's northern area.
Calls for American air strikes have increased in Washington, but U.S. military planners trying to find a way to help Iraq fend off the militant fighters are worried that such attacks could prove futile, several officials told CNN.
Among other complications, U.S. officials don't have good intelligence about where militants are. Even if they did, the militants don't have the type of targets -- command and control centers, air defense sites, military bases -- that lend themselves to aerial attacks, the officials said on condition of not being identified.
Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a war veteran and critic of Obama administration policy in Iraq, told CNN on Friday that air strikes "are certainly something that should be considered, but I would point out that air strikes are not easy."
