Hey idiot, none of this would be happening now had Bush not invaded Iraq on the WMD lie. The domino effect of Bush’s ineptitude, lies and ignorance has brought us to this point in the world. Luckily We the People elected a brilliant President to deal with these things. Notice the thoughtfulness and rationally methodical reaction to this situation, unlike Bush shoot from the hip, getting many of our military members killed and wounded with insecure bravado.

Obama said from day one that he would never commit troops to a conflict without a clear mission and objective… and we are seeing his words turned into action.

This is a great President/Commander-in-Chief.

We should have been carpet bombimg those animales weeks ago.The IS muzzie scum have killed thousands while oboingo worries about his pali friends in Israel. What little help obiongo has offered Iraq so far amounts to just about nothing as it doesn't do a thing to stop IS from taking more ground and killing more innocent people.

Hey idiot, what part of the economy went into the Bush recession that President Obama has us recovering from don't you get? There has always been the working poor, what Bush did was expand those numbers when he wrecked the financial stability of this great nation. Compare the job numbers unemployment numbers from when Obama first stepped into office when everything was falling down around us to the unemployment numbers and job numbers last week. I know it kills you since you so desperately hoped for failure but this president has constantly and consistently been a complete success in the face of so much right wing racists hate an unpatriotic opposition.

Finally your pee brain is starting to get it...

Yes when Bush went to war on a lie about WMD's, it was bad; when President Obama uses target air strikes and food drops on a humanitarian mission to save lives, that is good. And he is using the same authorization that has always been there that Congress gave back in 2002.

The moment that President Obama lies about the reason he is carrying out a military mission then you can compare him to President Bush... you right wingers are so desperate but you will always be seen as the political idiots who had the worst terrorist attack in this nation's history happened on their watch. and the Democratic Party will be seen as the party of national security and strength since we found and killed Osama bin Laden on President Obama's watch... deal with it.

Idiot.

This was all the fault of the Bush administration destabilizing an entire region / Iraq had never declared war on America, nor did they have WMD's or any of the other nonsense you and your ilk espouse.

Which is why Bush is doing water paintings and keeping his mouth shut / he knows factually he threw this region into complete chaos, and will not speak to anyone.

At least he's an azzhole that learned to keep his mouth shut - take a lesson from him moron!

There's a large difference between a military invasion of a sovereign nation and a targeted strike to save over 40,000 people Inbred.

Please don't conflate the two.

Good to see you buddy! Hope all's well!

The MORON in chief obuma hasn`t yet realized that this isn`t just about saving Iraq. ISIS by their action has declared war on humanity !! and religon around the world as they will murder anyone who does not believe as they do. Their leader is a 21st century Adolf Hitler the only difference is they are going after all religons and races. If they are not stopped dead in their tracks or allowed to expand eventually the`ll be here if not already here due to obuma refusing to secure our boarders.

obuma if he was smart would form a colalition Air Forces around the world with those who fear these terrorists and their beliefs and send in hundreds of aircraft at a time to carpet bomb with cluster and Napalm bomps followed up by gun ships, KILL them All. and lastly heavily arm the Kurds our only true allies in the region.

If obuma doesn`t get serious eventually we are ALL screwed

None of that news was new news, U.S already began using airstrikes and covert operations long ago. It began in Syria perhaps couple of years or so.

However, reporting airstrikes on the news came after the total failure. because, no military approach can be achieved without ground's presence which is basically impossible to be happened in Iraq-Syria.

Although, the honorable tribal revolutionaries believe is that they believe they are not approaching the victory after another by military means only. But they believe that they are approaching and are achieving the tremendous victory by the support of Allah almighty.

How soon you forget - DEMS had control of CONGRESS - both the House and Senate - when Bush was in - you always say the House does not support Obama - well neither the House or Senate supported Bush. It was the Dems that led us into the recession NOT BUSH. Bush did not have control of CONGRESS.

BTW you can wipe your azz on your race card - no one is paying any attention to it anymore. The Dems are so racist they have the word RACIST falling out of their mouth every time they open it.

How does your suggestion to "annihilate" all of them not differentiate your train of thought from, as you put it, Adolf Hitler?

Obama has been trying to secure Turkey in the presence to help stop ISIS, and this is not a fight this country should go alone. My family members have spent multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I do not wish to see any of them, nor any more Americans shed blood over a pre-emptive war again.

As to your proposed genocide of ISIS, tell how you can claim any moral superiority by committing the exact same atrocities as ISIS is currently conducting? We tried your carpet bagging and napalm techniques before in Vietnam - and we lost and left. What in the world makes you think this would have a different outcome?

This country also supplied weapons to the Kurds and as each town has fallen to ISIS, our weapons have also fallen into their hands as well.

There is no simple solution to a complicated situation over there, and your extreme views would compound the situation 10 fold were your ideas to be employed.

The only part of your post I agree with is WE never should have invaded Iraq, as Saddam was no threat to America or our allies and HE kept Iran in check thus he would have never let Iran get as far as they have with their nuclear weapons program.
BUT!

obuma is soley responsible for all the strife we see today in the Middleast:
1st He never should have abandoned Iraq totally it left a vaccum to be filled by terrorist.
2nd obuma should have never gone into Libya, Kadaffy had become sort of an ally in recent years providing info to the CIA on terror groups operating in the Middleast AND he kept Alquada and the muslim brotherhood from not only establishing bases in Libya but kept them OUT of the country. Again thanks to obumaq the country is in turmoil with no end in sight.
3rd His support for the ouster of President Mubarack of Egypt who was our ally and was at peace with our biggest ally Israel. Mubarack had outlawed the muslim brotherhood and he to had kept Alquada and other terror groups from Egypt. obuma and hillary clinton both had supported the muslim brotherhoods takeover of Egypt. All I can say is thank god for Egypts military takeover and ousting of the brotherhood. If not for them Egypt would in complete chaos with civil war and Israel would be facing a new active enemy as the brotherhood like hamas wants to exterminate the Jews and Israel.

This ALL falls on obuma for his muslim support and incompetent socialst progressive administration.

You nonsense has been debunked so many times, you're really unworthy of a factual retort, since you just wish to remain firmly planted in your false claims.

The republicans had full control of Congress for well over 10 years - your claim that a 2 year democratic Congress destroyed the economy has been debunked too many times already.

Bush had veto power if he was vehemently against any legislation bought to his desk.

Now change your depends - the crap is building up and backing into your head, spewing out on a keyboard.
