“Barack To Iraq:” Obama Sends In “Military Advisors”

AMERICAN TROOPS HEADED BACK TO BAGHDAD …  U.S. President Barack Obama – who called the second American crusade to Iraq “the wrong war” and who hailed the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011 from the country as a signature accomplishment of his administration – is sending U.S. troops to Iraq….


U.S. President Barack Obama – who called the second American crusade to Iraq “the wrong war” and who hailed the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011 from the country as a signature accomplishment of his administration – is sending U.S. troops to Iraq.

Specifically, Obama will dispatch 300 military advisors to the region to assist in the training of Iraq’s state-run military – which is being overrun by an al-Qaeda inspired force.

Or … Obama could be sending the advisors to help the military launch a coup against its democratically elected leaders, judging by all the “regime change” talk coming out of Washington, D.C. these days.

“It’s not our job to choose Iraq’s leaders,” Obama said in announcing the latest troop commitment.

Really?  Then why are we doing just that … again.

“Make no mistake … this is a provocation in search of an escalation, a move Obama hopes will spark a confrontation capable of rallying a war-weary America behind yet another failed, costly intervention,” we wrote earlier this week.

Seriously … all that’s left at this point is for an al-Qaeda assault to end in the death of an American soldier and – BAM! – America’s fear-mongering war gods will have the third crusade in Iraq they are so desperate for.

Oh, and while the latest American intervention will require the approval of the Iraqi government – America’s elected representatives will have no say in it, apparently.  That’s because U.S. minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) told Obama he did not need congressional authorization to send troops to Iraq in the event he believed our “national security” was at stake.

And while Obama vowed to “consult with Congress,” he did not indicate his intention to seek a vote authorizing his actions.

It’ll require the approval of the Iraqi government? Well, they’re already asking us to send in air strikes.

All that’s left now is to watch us light another few billion on fire.

Wonderful. Just fucking wonderful! We need to really get involved in this and kill off a few thousand more of our best and bravest, not to mention those who are physically and mentally maimed for life. We’ll do it just like we have done in every war since WWII, with no intent of holding ground or of winning. That is not the fault of the troops but of the scumbag politicians who start these wars but won’t let our troops win them.

I bet Lindsey Graham is creaming in his jeans right now as well as trying to figure out if he can have the US start WWIII as an aside to this.

Thanks, all you fucktards who voted to keep him in for another six years.

Graham is a very very sick man, indeed. He enjoys murdering and killing people. Hence, he is a true sociopath.

Perhaps Graham will actually participate in a ‘war zone’….mmmmm,,, NAH!

Hey fellars, Who’s the President?

CorruptionInColumbia June 19, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Fully agree, but there is no justification in electing someone who will give POTUS any and everything he asks for, aka Lindsey, John McCain, or Boehner.

TontoBubbaGoldstein June 19, 2014 at 5:05 pm

Though TBG is no fan of Obama…he seriously considered having some ” ‘O’ THE PRESIDENT” stickers made…just to piss off the ” ‘W’ THE PRESIDENT” sticker crowd.

For the whole 2008 campaign 0bama criticized Bush relentlessly, stating that he, Bush, was doing everything so awfully wrong. Now for the whole 5-1/2 years of his presidency he seems hell bent on validating damn near everything he, Bush, did/said.

We’ve been training their military for a decade, yet they’re still incapable of defending themselves. It’s unfortunate, but they simply can’t keep a sovereign border on their own.

Mr. Praline: ‘Ello, I wish to register a complaint.

Republican: We’re closin’ for lunch.

Mr. Praline: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this war in Iraq what I purchased not a decade ago from this very government.

Republican: Oh yes, the, uh, the war in Iraq..What’s,uh…What’s wrong with it?

Mr. Praline: I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it, my lad. it’s dead, that’s what’s wrong with it!

Republican: No, no, it’s uh,…he’s resting.

Mr. Praline: Look, matey, I know a dead war in Iraq when I see one, and I’m looking at one right now.

Republican: No no it’s not dead, it’s, it’s restin’! Remarkable war, the war in Iraq, idn’it, ay?

Mr. Praline: It’s stone dead.

Republican: Nononono, no, no! it’s resting!

Mr. Praline: All right then, if it’s restin’, I’ll wake it up! (shouting at the tv) ‘Ello, Mister Maliki t! I’ve got a lovely fresh cuttle fish for you if you show…

(Republican hits the tv)

Republican: There, it’s moved!

Mr. Praline: No, it didn’t, that was you hitting the television!

Republican: I never!!

Mr. Praline: Yes, you did!

Republican: I never, never did anything…

Mr. Praline: (yelling and hitting the tv repeatedly) ‘ELLO Maliki!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o’clock alarm call!

Mr. Praline: Now that’s what I call a dead war.

Republican: No, no…..No, it’s stunned!

Mr. Praline: STUNNED?!?

Republican: Yeah! You stunned it, just as it was wakin’ up!

Mr. Praline: Um…now look…now look, mate, I’ve definitely ‘ad enough of this. That war is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not a decade ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein’ tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.

Republican: Well, it’s…it’s, ah…probably pining for the fjords.

Mr. Praline: PININ’ for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did it fall flat on its back the moment I got home?

Republican: The Iraq war prefers keepin’ on it’s back! Remarkable war, id’nit, squire?

Mr. Praline: Look, I took the liberty of examining that war when I got home, and I discovered it had been NAILED together.


Republican: Well, o’course it was nailed together! If I hadn’t nailed that war together, VOOM! Feeweeweewee!

Mr. Praline: “VOOM”?!? Mate, this war wouldn’t “voom” if you put four million volts through it! it’s bleedin’ demised!

Republican: No no! it’s pining!

Mr. Praline: it’s not pinin’! it’s passed on! This war is no more! It has ceased to be! it’s expired and gone to meet its maker! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life,it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed it together it’d be a pile of wood! it’s metabolic processes are now ‘istory! it’s off the twig! it’s kicked the bucket, ‘e’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-WAR!!


Republican: Well, I’d better replace it, then. (he takes a quick peek behind the counter) Sorry squire, I’ve had a look ’round the back of the shop, and uh, we’re right out of wars.

Mr. Praline: I see. I see, I get the picture.

Republican: (pause) I got a slug.


Mr. Praline: Pray, does it have oil?

Republican: Nnnnot really.


Republican: N-no, I guess not. (gets ashamed, looks at his feet)

Mr. Praline: Well.


Republican: (quietly) D’you…. d’you want to come back to my place?

Mr. Praline: (looks around) Yeah, all right, sure.

Bible Thumper June 19, 2014 at 4:58 pm

Instead of sending the military, maybe the US should launch a Twitter campaign against the ISIL.

We have a madman at the helm, on the one hand there are war hawks -on the other hand we have the peaceful, isolationists. We cannot run their lives, we will end the same way with Afghanistan, as we did in Vietnam. We abandon military equipment that still is operational. That same stuff was used against us during the second invasion of Iraq.

If Bomb Bomb McCain and Bomb Bomb Graham had their way that would be 30,000 troops on the way, with plans to stay forever.Thankfully President Obama doesn’t have their kill and be killed mentality.I’ll take a Cool Hand Luke any day over idiots like Cheney and the Bombs Bombs………I can’t blame GWB for the mess because in all honesty I don’t think he even knows where Iraq is,he was just playing follow the leader.

Let’s see, military advisors, where have I heard that term before-somewhere in south east Asia–it’s coming to me-Viet Nam-thats’s it and we know how that turned out.
