Mosel was the city of 55,000 Iraqi military and police, along with all the American tanks, ordinance and weapons they were trained on.....yet they surrendered and ran in the face of 9,000 ISIS fighters......President Obama is right...We can't help them, if they won't fight back.....Their President was warned of the danger of excluding the Sunni's from representation......

At least Obama could apologize to all the families of dead and crippled jerks who thought they had invaded Iraq for some moral purpose.
What a bunch of ignorant jerks!
Raising children to murder innocents for cash should not be the American way, should it?

You are an ignorant fool blinded by your hatred of Obama. The sectarian conflict in the Middle East has been hot and cold for generations, long before Obama's mother was born. The current outbreak was caused when the USA removed Sadam, a Sunni, and handed power to the Shia. Groups hate to loose power and unless suppressed will do almost anything to get it power (ex. the Republicans in the USA or the Democrats in Texas). Iran, which is Shia, will support the Iraqi Shia and the Saudis (and the other Sunni powers in Arabia) will support the Sunnis (and Syrian rebels). It is possible that other Muslim powers, such as Pakistan (they have nukes) will get involved. When the US takes sides likely dragging Europe along that can prompt others like Russia, China and India to consider getting involved. This jump on the bandwagon BS contributed to WWI. Of course Israel's existence, physical existence, is on the line so you can count on them to try to remove any threat.'We' the world could bungle ourselves into another world war. If so history will blame the USA and it will be the neo-cons.
"You can't" (meaning Obama) is exactly right, he can only decide to stay out (for now) or support the Shia --- "WE" including you can offer ourselves as 'cannon fodder'. Join up and fight for 'Iraq'(with the Iranians and other Sunni Muslims). Show you are not just hot air.

Obama has not and will not help non-radical Islamic governments to survive. He will fund and arm the radical Islamic elements in Libya and Syria. He will acquiesce to a complete reversal of all gains in a War on Terror. He won't help the Iraqis maintain a direction to human freedom. He will fund and support an illegal coup in Ukraine and subsequent shelling and bombing of civilians with incendiaries. Could this be just another application of the Leftist insanity called eugenics, or is this just an American treason against humanity?

George W. Bush should do the apologizing. Then he and his henchmen should be tried for murder.

Bush succeeded in Iraq, even as Democrats changed their tune and tried every conceivable method of undermining him and our troops.

Obama has reversed every success of our troops and President Bush. He has handed many countries back to the most insane and radical Islamic elements, even funding and arming some of them. In his insanity he has funded an illegal coup resulting in the firebombing of civilians in Ukraine.

When are people going to wake to the fact that the Democrat Party has been taken over by Bolsheviks and traitors, who believe in supporting such as the Baathists and al Qaeda in Iraq, because the Baathists were Socialist and Stalinist in behavior. They support anarchy, even National Socialism, where they plan a long term takeover and imposition of their Marxist ideals. They have imposed economic recession in the US just as they have done before... whenever the populace is inclined to political activism that would go against their Marxism, they impose raised utility costs, raised fuel costs, raised food prices and more imposed sexual depravity. This way, the doped and dumbed down Americans will be more concerned about their selfishness, than even their birthrights.

The troops are not ignorant jerks. Armies, from the Greeks to those of today have been physically trained and psychologically conditioned to kill people and break things. The ability to do so when ordered and stop when ordered is a sign of a disciplined military. Overall I think every one can agree the US military is well disciplined. We can't blame them for the policy and strategic mistakes of the leaders. Remember what William Westmoreland said "The military don't start wars. Politicians start wars."
But you are right, it is a shame that so many of them suffered death, disabilty and psychological distress as a result of the recent wars. It proves Sun Tzu's saying "There is no instance of a nation benefiting from prolonged warfare." For me it is hard to see many gains from the War on Terror, not that there haven't been some it is just that the price was high for those gains.

For certain we should have learned that we have no right attempting to set up a government of our liking. And it will do no good to choose sides supporting one against the other. And no matter the adversary is ISIS, Al Qaida or the Mujahidin, they are the local inhabitants who return home for dinner after a day of fighting. They don't have airplanes or drones. They don't have tanks or heavy artillery. They have tribal and community loyalty, weapons stronger than ours.

President Bush predicted this would happen in 2007 if we pulled out of Iraq too soon. Obama wanted it to hand it to his muslim friends so he pulled out before the Iraqis were ready. Now he can swap all the American contractors taken hostage for all his Muslim buddies in GITMO, and he is done!!! In the meantime the Democrats will take the fall in November at the polls, because they aided, and abetted Obama in his cause.

The track record of Marxist Presidents is phenomenal. In every country they meddle, persecution of Christians increases, beheadings skyrocket and letting terrorists go is common. Clinton did it; Obama does it. This is why the Marxist Democrats hate conservatives... Conservatives don't do this type of treasonous behavior in response to the World Trade Center attacks of the early 90s and 2001. After it's been proven Obama funded the radicals in Libya, Syria and Egypt, while returning war criminal Islamists to Afghanistan, we'll have to remember the reports of how those arms and funding also were filtering from Libya into Iraq. We don't know yet if Obama directly funded ISIS in Iraq, but his expansive funding of radical Islam has helped.

I used to live in a former communist country. Listening to Obama before he became president in 2008 had to laugh hard. He reminded me of communist leaders in my country ( I thought I left utopia behind). We didn't have food on our tables, yet, they were talking about pies in the sky. Yummy (poor empty stomach). In order for him to CHANGE U.S., he was talking about (or dreaming), he had to be Kim Jong Il. In Canada pennis aren't being used anymore. You supporters of Obama can have our CHANGE left behind couches, fridges, etc.

The only difference between a communist country and a democratic country (I found out) is that in a communist country we couldn't say anything bad about the regime. You can say anything you want, yet, everything stays the same.
