Default Major cities in Iraq fall..

Militants have taken over Mosul and Tikrit, Iraq's military flees. Can't post the link from my phone, but here we go again...Now what do we do? Are we obligated on some level to go back in? I'll get a link up when I can.

It is freaking disaster. Obama and his National Security team failed on this one.

So you obviously think we should still have 100,000 troops in Iraq to keep the peace huh.... Another War that went unpaid for... doesn't sound very conservative to you.

I think most of us would agree that the Iraq war was not in the best interests of this country. That said, now what are our obligations? Next thing you know, these dudes will be rolling into Baghdad in Humvees and MRAPs that we left over there. You don't think this shows a massive policy failure by the current administration?

Don't make silly assumptions about what I think dude. I simply pointed out that the Marines that fought house to house in that crap whole city have got to be feeling a little bit mystified at this point wouldn't you think? I'm just asking the question. Period. Do we let it burn?

What other complications would arise if say turkey decided on a military response? This is a pretty big deal.

I'm still wondering what Obama is going to do about Boko Haram? He threatened them last week and they kidnapped 20 more girls. What happened to the twitter campaign? Forgotten in one week? What happened to "our girls"? Meanwhile 1500 people in Africa die PER DAY from Malaria, and we're mandated to purchased worthless skyrocketing insurance.

Obama's own special brand of Socialism certainly has a way of radicalizing everyone around the world. Turns out people don't like being told how to live. They also don't respond well to being threatened by an idiot with control over the most powerful military in the world.

Prepare for more empty, feckless threats from the Obama administration, while doing nothing except infuriating and radicalizing more people around the world, leading to even more spreading oppression.

Did Obama actually send these people support? They all came over the Syrian border. What do you think is going to happen when you completely exclude Sunni's from the government of the country in which they live? Complete abdication.


Keep clamoring for more war Rigs, you won't accomplish anything.

Why wouldn't they move. Look at Putin. He stole several trillion dollars worth of oil and land from Ukraine (Crimea) and obama didn't even bat an eye. He's given the green light for terrorists and dictators to move and they are.

China is salivating at our weakness to grab more land.....Stay tuned....

Maybe we can install a strong man who will rule with an iron fist. I recommend somebody from the Baathist party.

Bush had it under control, Obama failed to get an agreement that would let troops stay for security, country falls apart. Obama does nothing. Typical.

Maybe so but not Israel. It's why we got involved in the first place. Remember?

It's all about the Holy Land. Isn't it?

I tend to agree with that. But it chaps my ass to think about the dudes that gave their lives over there to have it revert back just months after we leave. This just looks like it has all the makings. Syria, Turkey, Iran etc. maybe we should just let them kill each other and burn the whole piece of **** down. I don't know.
