Islamic Militants poised to take over Iraq

IRBIL, Iraq — Insurgents inspired by al-Qaeda rapidly pressed toward Baghdad on Wednesday, confronting little resistance from Iraq’s collapsing security forces and expanding an arc of control that now includes a wide swath of the country.

With the fall of Mosul on Tuesday, Iraq’s al Qaeda offshoot has not only seized the country’s second-largest city, it appears it also has come into possession of the heavy weapons and vehicles the U.S. military had provided Iraq’s military to fight them.

It seems like America has fallen for one of the classic blunders and gotten involved in a landwar in Asia :(

Iraq-Syria caliphate. And they said it could never happen...

Right, this is totally Obama’s fault. You guys are so sharp.

Kaylore 06-12-2014 01:29 PM

In light of this unsurprising development, and the buffoonish foreign policy that led to it, here is a list of gifs I call "Ode to what the hell did you think was going to happen?"

That's awesome. I was posting it as a joke but he immediately went there. Bush didn't want the troops pulled out. There were set of criteria that were to be kept in-house and when the country met those criteria, the phase out would begin.

This is absolutely Obama's fault.

mennonite 06-12-2014 01:34 PM

Personally, I think they are both incompetent idiots.

A set of criteria?!?!?! ROFL!

Oh man, you’re even worse than I thought. Not gonna waste energy on that.

I’m no Obama sycophant, although I do support him. But blaming Iraq on him is American Whitey at his finest.

TD4HOF 06-12-2014 01:39 PM

I was in the streets of LA in the spring of 2003 protesting the Iraq offensive. I’ve been on the ball from the get go. Many smart people laid out exactly what would happen REGARDLESS of actions taken up after the decision had been made to invade. I’d like to know how many of today’s critics were against the invasion in 2003.

FYI: You have no leg to stand on.

I think most of us will agree that going into Iraq was absolutely the wrong call. That said, you can't excuse this administration's ineptitude regarding foreign policy. Obama has said such stupid things recently like "Al-Qaeda has been decimated", or "on the run," or that ISIS is a JV team. Sure this isn't all his fault, but to think that they haven't taken their eye off the ball is insane.

Our entire system has been broken for years- I'm not surprised we continue to repeat the same blunders.

Can't say I disagree.

TD4HOF 06-12-2014 01:40 PM

A set of criteria. LOL.....that is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

Bush laid out a set of criteria for Iraq.

BWWWAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Drunk guy in court after plowing over a pedestrian.

It didnt start with Obama and Bush can take the blame for putting US into a war with Iraq but Obama had no clue (like many of his plans) that this could and would happen if we withdrawal too soon. If you state a plan that Americans back, you better be correct that it won't affect us in the future. It looks like this one will and I haven't heard from Obama yet to try to at least keep USA interest strongholds from falling into the enemy's hands.

PS: I was against the invasion and I am a conservative.
