"The Pentagon ordered an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf to give President Obama more options ..."

OK, OK, move the carrier group up, just make it seem like it wasn't my idea.

The Iraqis can't handle shiat themselves?

Too bad, so sad.

Oh, and while we're here...Hey Afghanistan, you might want to get the hamsters running on their wheels so you can generate enough electricity to watch this on TV. It's going to be a super preview of what's going to happen when we bounce out of that shiathole you call a nation.

They should really have everybody in the middle east sit down and redrawn all the damn maps.  The current borders are arbitrary and contribute to the problems.

"See, we didn't actually decide to send any more American troops to Iraq. Instead, we sent there all the jailed gangbangers from Chicago's Westside and Southside. That way the problems will sort themselves out."

Any time people badmouth American diplomacy I feel it necessary to bring up the fine European Minds that brought us WWI, WWII, and every shiatty border scuffle caused by putting every tribe that hated each other together in Africa and Asia.
 
2014-06-14 11:20:32 PM  
Because we do so well with turf wars, like with the Mexican drug cartels on the border, we should dive right back in and avenge the slight to W's dad again, look for wmds, or just camp out in some Halliburton VIP rooms at a breathtaking cost to the taxpayers.

After all Kurds, Sunnis, and Shia were all such good friends just a short millennium ago. And before that the Persians, Assyrians, and whatever have been partying together forever.

Baghdad Bob is probably waiting by the phone, thinking, "I knew they would need me again.  They sent some general, an amateur, out to do a pro's job.  Tell them, this is a job, for Bob!"

Every american should watch this documentary. The US administration is full of shiat.

If some oppressed minority has oil and leadership that wants to sell as much as possible to the us we will come and liberate the hell out of them.

So then we contain until they have wiped out nearly all of their infrastructure, weapons and manpower. They won't have any money left to buy more weapons and they will have used up all the ones that they have. They don't want us there and just going in, again, will cause more problems.

Think of it this way; Europe used to be just like this area. They had plenty of weapons, money to buy more and a level of hatred and greed that made them want to kill each other. Until they tried to a few times, peace was impossible. And until they wiped out most of the continent with war, they didn't stop fighting.

The Iranian government is primarily Shia. The Iraqi government is primarily Shia. The Sunnis are the insurgents here. Iran doesnt want the Sunnis (especially these guys) to take over the country. The article above explains it well. Cant hotlink in mobile.

Iran wants to help the shiates, not Iraq. They also want an expanded influence.

OK, and the down side of this is what?  People who are not our friends are killing one another and we're suppose to wring our hands over this.  Excuse me, but, I just don't care.

Anyone catch this little gem in the comments section?

"We need to make it crystal clear to the jihadists in Iraq and elsewhere that if there is another attack on the homeland of America, we will launch an all-out nuclear attack on the sacred cities of Mecca and Medina that will leave them a radioactive sheet of glass. If they want all trace of their so-called religion eradicated from the face of the Earth, then just keep it up!"

Sounds serious.

That's actually a sign of great joy. It's not unusual to give very small children loaded guns to shoot at weddings and the like.
Sometimes with the expected unfortunate consequences.

It's retarded, barbaric bullshiat but let's not judge other cultures.. welcome to the Middle East.
