PRESIDENT: NEW IRAQ OPERATION WILL “TAKE SOME TIME”
U.S. president Barack Obama refuses to say when his bombing campaign against militants in northern Iraq will end – telling tapped out, war weary U.S. taxpayers the operation there will “take some time.”
“I’m not going to give a particular timetable,” Obama said prior to embarking on a two-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
Obama also declined to say when – or whether – he would seek congressional approval for his latest military action, which puts America back in Iraq less than three years after its forces concluded a thoroughly unsuccessful eight-year invasion.
Obama ran for president in 2008 on a platform of ending the Iraq War – which he referred to as a “dumb war.” Now, he’s insisting America “maintain vigilance” in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) – a Muslim army that received American support in its efforts to take out Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
(For more on that, CLICK HERE).
“I don’t think we’re going to solve this problem in weeks,” Obama said. “This is going to be a long-term project.”
Great … just great.
This website opposes military intervention in Iraq.
“These people are going to kill each other, pure and simple,” we wrote recently. “Same thing in the Israeli-Gaza fight. There’s nothing we can do to stop it. In fact the more we meddle in their affairs, the more they want to kill us , too.”
Seriously … did trillions of wasted dollars and thousands of lost lives in this very country not teach us the futility of such interventions?
What a dork.
Good ol’ “kinetic military action.”
Republicans only became “concerned” about presidential vacations when Obama took them.
Remember the halcyon days of George W at his,ah, “ranch” with the staged brush clearin and wood choppin while wars raged in Iraq and Afghanistan?
But,gee, why bring that up?Fits?He Aint no damn Republican!(heh heh heh)
Those Bush photo ops were always hilarious. That Poof hasn’t even cleared a square foot of brush in his entire life.
Bush went home for vacations, Obama can’t, Kenya doesn’t want him back…. since we’re making stuff up, I thought I’d play.
All the overseas flights were work related, ehh !
I think the current occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave leads in the “trips abroad” category: http://www.ntu.org/ntuf/3-24-14-presidents-euro-trip-flights-cost-most-travel-over-5-years.html
He’s been on vacation for most of 6 years, and your stupid @$$ ain’t said a word…
Biden suggested dividing Iraq into 3 different countries. Why not divide America in half?
If you look at an electoral map with red (pubs) and blue (dems) 98% of the “geography” shows Republican.
Give em all the metro areas and the state of California.
Would solve a lot of problems as this country is hopelessly divided between good and evil.
Careful, if you slash off all the blue states and blue cities, the red states/cities will have to find a new host to suck tax dollars from.
Congress has for most of 4.
Congress has led us to the Senate…and in 2016 the Tri-fecta..Thank GOD…
The common GOP defense is that they only point it out because Democrats pointed out Bush’s vacations. It’s all bullshit either way, since:
1) Presidents don’t have to make a decision every time a gnat farts halfway around the world.
2) Presidential “vacations” are probably not much of vacations to begin with. Riding a bike or swinging a golf club might be a break from work, but I doubt when he goes back to his room it’s all margaritas and nap time.
Presidents don’t age bigtime while in office because playing through 18 holes is that tiring (unless we’re talking about Bill, anyways).
Will the country ever be done trying to fix the messes Bush/Cheney got us into? Not in our life times, unfortunately.
Yeah, I think we can go a hell of a lot further back than Bush and Cheney in looking at the roots of this problem .
Oh yeah, Bush Sr. Thanks
In your knowledge of history, that’s probably about right…
Most people’s knowledge of history is sorely lacking. Without Google most would never know what the eleventh month, eleventh day, eleventh hour is all about.
I’ll bet most people don’t know why there is Moorish Architecture in Spain.
Most wouldn’t know Moorish architecture if they saw it and significant numbers couldn’t point to Spain on a map without reading the place names to make sure…
Oh yeah, Iraq was our buddy during Reagan’s years. Love that photo of Rumsfeld glad-assing it with Saddam. You’re right, these assholes have been screwing things up over there for decades.
So the Armistice of 1919, the British Mandate, the abolition of the Caliphate, the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire none of those things had anything to do with it?
We had Hussein (Saddam not Barack) hung by his own people, you ignorant, uneducated F*#k…
You mean Carter toppling the Shah, and the Iran domino began knocking it all into chaos…????
I was thinking more along the lines of Reagan’s Contra deal and Iran.
They fixed you ignorant F*#king Dumb@$$ – and Obama/Biden took the credit for it……Then Obama pulled a Clinton, so it’s more F*#ked up now, than you are…
I don’t agree with your premise however IF I did ,Obama supporting radical terrorists and their desire to destroy America is a good start , don’t you think? :-)
Either way you want to look at it, we’ll be paying money in Iraq for another 100 years, republicans call it progress and keeping America safe.
republicans aren’t in charge now.
“In fact the more we meddle in their affairs, the more they want to kill us , too.”
Yazidis, Christians, Kurds and Shiites are in danger and have asked for our help. That’s not “meddling”. They have already expressed their desire to kill us. US policy should not be thwarted because of “the more they want to kill us”.
“tapped out, war weary U.S. taxpayers”
The expense has already risen for failure to act earlier. We will eventually have to deal with IS. The sooner the less expense and risk to innocent Iraqi and American lives.
What FITS is clueless about: The more we ignore their affairs, the more Capable of killing us they become…
FITS is very irresponsible in his style, and it extends to his politics. Obama and FITS were in lockstep on Iraq, and look at the F*#king mess they have made..and that ignorant Liberal-Tarian foreign policy has been a disaster around the world..
Amen.I dare those fags from ISIL to stop in Moore.
No worry. If IS comes to Moore convert to Islam or pay your “jizya” tax of 17 grams of gold.
Funny how FITS acts like the world will end if we don’t put Border Crashers, who their parents abandoned, on immediate welfare, w/ college tuition. But babies being beheaded because they have Christian parents, are not worth defending, because it may cut into the cost of FITS’ dime-bag, Ron Paul is promising him..
Somebody fought for your irresponsible, bitter and sorry @$$ to be free…and you squander it on the bondage of the democrat party…sold as Liberal-Tarian…
That God people like you, and Satan, are NOT policing the world….We don’t need any more evil…
Best post ever on FITS!
Satan is a people?
Oh no! Obama took a vacation. What a lazy bastard! No President before him ever took a vacation! Especially during a full-blown war!
Obama is a ‘lazy’. His wife said so. She also said he stunk so bad his small children wouldn’t get into bed with them.
Google it. Put in “Michelle Obama says Barack Obama stinks”.
““I’m not going to give a particular timetable,” Obama said prior to embarking on a two-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.”…what, no exit strategy????
November elections are the ‘election’ strategy. American people believe him to be incompetent in regards to foreign policy…some even believe he is purposely weakening America and supporting our enemies.
Sad that many believe him to be ‘anti-Christianity’ however that is a fact. He had to act as the mass killing of 50,000 Christians in Iraq would have just confirmed that he is indeed a supporter of Islam. You can tell when he spaeaks he is ‘pained ‘ to have to help the Christians in Iraq just as he hated to turn his back on Hamas when Israel told him to go to Hell.
When Republicans gain control of the senate this fall Obama will turn his back on Iraq and the Christians. Kerry will be sent to negotiate with ISIS and tell them to relax as if Hillary is elected in 2016, she will have more ‘flexibility’ to appease the terrorists.
Lil’ Benito’s ‘flexibility’ is nothing more than his limp dick….
And how dare President Obama ride a bicycle and wear sunglasses too – doesn’t he know his place?!?
I think the fact the wHite House took the ‘training wheels’ off his bike is what bothers you.
I think the fact that he almost looks white in the photograph is what bothers you.
I never noticed. Please define ‘almost looks white’? He looked ‘Blues’ to me? I don’t blame him. :-)
“I never noticed”
You’re full of shit.
One more from the Forum Race Baiter.
If nothin else, you can away serve as a poor example.
LOL. Fuck you.
Well, to be fair, he IS half white …
…and why isn’t he wearing spandex?
We should force Obama to have only as much vacation as Bush!
Still cleaning up the Bush-Cheney mess!!
