We still have an embassy there. Don't ask me why. I am of the same opinion of Dennis Miller when it comes to having embassies in dumpster fire countries.

Good. I am very PRO Embassy security..... who knows what could happen if we were to cut or reduce embassy security in these troubled times.

We broke it, we bought it. And boy are we paying for it.

Everyone on the right still pissy he didn't use his time machine to prevent any American deaths by sending troops before it happened. Or at the very least, pissy that it takes time to authorize and deploy troops. We can't just drop people out of orbit on any hotzone the moment something happens, guys. Though... if we could I'd be the first to sign up for that. America needs Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.

He's totally trollin the ambassador. Those troops have orders to stand down.
 
2014-09-03 01:59:40 AM  
We have no business risking our necks over any of these. Get our guys out of there.

That earthquake that just hit the East Coast was McCain's 75-year old boner erupting through his pants. Screams of "F*CK YEAH!" could be heard from Ted Cruz's office, though the reason for that shriek of ecstasy was not immediately clear.

I'm just trying to guess whether the GOP battle cry tomorrow will be "NOT ENOUGH!" or "TOO MUCH!"

are we all agreed that leaving iraq to iran, syria and russia would be a huge mistake?

I was just watching Good Morning Vietnam and thinking we need to stop sending troops anywhere but back home.

Came to post basically the same thing. I'm guessing "not enuff".

The fact that ISIS is killing some Christians over there has the religious right up in arms and demanding a New Crusade lately.

Now excuse me I'm gonna hafta administer some electro-shock therapy to my skull on order to try to get that imagery of McCain's 85 year old penis doing an incredible hulk thing.

Thanks fer that, Gyrfalcon. Yer a peach.

I don't think they have 350 Swiss Guards in Vatican City.

Here is something to consider- the hands off approach is not the most cautious approach.

If only Iraq had a stongman who could keep the various factions in line with minimal bloodshed(compared to the war that's been raging since 2003).

Even as the Pentagon and the White House stressed the new troops were not being sent to Iraq in a combat role, they will be arriving at a critical time.

If they arent meant to fight then they are either there to rattle sabers or act as bait.

The subject of the Swiss Guards came up with some SEALs I worked with in the Navy; they had great respect for the Guard, it was on their short list of 'people you don't want to Fark with'.

That's actually quite calming in direct comparison.

obama gets the hero tag for not putting boots on the ground in Iraq. Just like he promised. He never lies except sometimes (barrycare like your doctor keep your doctor, $2,500 savings per family, like your health plan keep it, only costs 900 billion, Benghazi was a video, IRS not a smidgen of corruption, gonna fix the VA in 2008/2012/2014, etc) and his administration is the most transparent of them all.
The war in Iraq is over and there's no boots on the ground, that's zero boots on the ground. Anyone that thinks differently is a racist! All hail obama.

Looks like we had a great plan ending the Iraq war. Good job government thinkers.
 
2014-09-03 06:18:23 AM  
For anyone who thinks our bombing raids were protecting the dam near Mosul...

Kurdish forces say they have retaken oilfields near Mosul in northern Iraq...

That's from the BBC 4 days ago.

We are getting unilaterally sucked into another oil war in Iraq. The last one went on for several years. Enjoy.

You've got the GOP response wrong.

Yesterday was 'WHY WONT THE PRESIDENT COMMIT THE COUNTRY TO TOTAL WAR AGAINST THE GREATEST THREAT EVER!?!?'

Today will be 'WHY IS THE PRESIDENT COMMITTING THIS COUNTRY TO TOTAL WAR AND RISKING OUR BOYS TO FIGHT A WEAK GROUP IN A CIVIL WAR!?!?'

The killings at Camp Speicher are among the worst atrocities claimed by ISIS in Iraq. The group, which refers to as the "Islamic State," said it killed 1,700 Iraqi forces, but no official figures have been released.

1700 Iraqis die. Nobody cares. 2 reporters die.The world loses its mind.
