Default 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.

Maybe the idiot militants will try to take on the Kurds.

THOSE are the people you don't want to mess around with from what I hear.

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

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?"

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.

Glad to see some Mane comedy in a serious thread. I had to read what you were replying in the post to get the joke. Nice.

Look, I’m in agony for the Iraqi people here, it’s terrible. I totally get what you’re saying here. But the offensive was misguided, costly and killed scores upon scores of citizens and our beloved soldiers. What was Obama supposed to do? Maintain the status quo? We’re broke. Afghanistan is costing us trillions. American soldiers dropping one after another.

Our fate was sealed in 2003. Freedom Fries for Everyone! Yay!

Sure this isn't all his fault, but to think that they haven't taken their eye off the ball is insane.

I’m not really sure what any administration could’ve done with the flaming pile of dung they were handed in 2008. A complex, volatile foreign plate with a heaping spoonful of economic woes.

We’ll know more down the line, too tough to judge now. I’m a far left liberal and not the biggest DNC fan but DAMN the neo cons have caused us so much damage.
