    Obama is on the enemy of the USA's side.... like every other thing he has done..

    Yes. Yes we do. He's on his side. Unfortunately, his side basically includes, ah, him.

The Kurds could have their own little country, the same for the Shia and the Sunni. Once done, bring the boys home.

    Each could have formed the type of government they wanted and the laws to live under. Instead we forced democracy upon them and tried to make 3 different sects of people who never did get along with each other to get along with each other in the name of democracy.



    I remember the discussion and I thought at the time that splitting Iraq up into 3 pieces was the best solution.

    One of the reasons why that didn't happen was that Turkey didn't want a Kurdistan next door.

    I'm sure that Turkey is still opposed to the idea of a Kurdish nation.

    But that doesn't mean that it won't happen.


    U.S. aircraft could strike targets in Iraq tomorrow, but I don't know if that's a good idea if the Iraqi government doesn't change its way of doing business and reach out to the Sunnis in Iraq.

    In January 2007 then Senator Barack Obama went on Face the Nation to share his words of wisdom. First the Illinois junior senator refused to tell Bob Schieffer if he would cut off funding for our troops in Iraq. Then he added this:

    “One of the things that I strongly disagree with Senator McCain is, this notion that we have future catastrophe to look forward to if we start phasing down troops…

    …And so those of us who object to what I consider to be a disastrous policy on part of the Bush Administration, have in fact put forward a different approach. One that by the way tracks what the Iraq study group talked about. Two months before the Iraq study group came out with its proposal, I suggested that, if we initiate a phased withdrawal that provides us leverage to make sure the Iraqis are actually doing what needs to be done to arrive at a political accommodation. And Senator McCain and the President seem to believe that only a military solution can accomplish our goals there.”

    So it turns out the story of the $430 million looted from an Iraqi bank is not entirely true.

    The money that was confiscated was in Iraqi denominations which had a pre-civil war value $430 million. They will have a hard time offloading that currency at this point. They'll be lucky to see 10% of it's value in trade.

    At least not in the short run.

    Not that it matters.

    The Idiot in Chief is going to collude with Iran and this whole thing around Baghdad will be over in a heartbeat.

    Then we'll sit idly by as Iran steamrolls the Pech in Kirkuk and keeps right on going into Kurdistan ending even the philosophical notion of a Kurdish state, which sucks because the Kurds are probably the only people in that region who deserve to be cared about.

    This could be the absolute best thing that ever came of the War on Terror.

    But Obama will find some way to screw it up and ensure we come out of it as the biggest loser.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I rarely agree with McCain these days, but this time I do. Either BHO needs to get a new National Security team, or he needs to listen to the one he has in place - if they are giving him advice that is in the best interest of the Iraqi people and the entire ME! This does not appear to be the case, unfortunately!
