    Too bad he isn't using Israel as his indirect proxy.

    Seems these Iraqi gov't soldiers were just as big of cowards as the ones Bush/Cheney took out.
    Obama should have seen that coming, don't ya think ?
    Maybe, but again, is Obama providing the requested air support? Or, is he going let the yo-yos take over and run around blaming Bush?

    How do you think Turkey fits in here?
    Where will our jets fly out of?
    Who will partner with us, such as France, Great Britain, Israel--etc.
    How will Russia, Iran and Syria react to the bombing.
    In case you haven't noticed, they're an army now.
    Pretty smooth how we give Iraqi gov't cowards our equipment that is now in ISIS hands.
    Kind of like IndoChina huh ?

    So what is this lost cause you are surrendering? Support for the democratic state of Iraq or the opposition to an ISIS Caliphate?

    We have to coordinate the airstrikes with the Iranian troops that have been sent in to back up Malaki. We wouldn't want to kill them by mistake would we? Does it make you feel comfortable? Providing air support for the Revolutionary Guard? Do you finally see what a mess Bush got us into?

    But that does nothing to liberate the cities.

    FYI, it isn't 'my assessment', but the opinion of the US Forces on both the time of creation and the lack of production of the 2005 Mosul chem plant.
    I know how things were reported in the news but in the official testimony given to Congress, Kay and Duelfer painted another picture. Don't have time to look for it right now, I'm up to my neck making pies for Father's Day celebration and other food prep. My time is limited between tasks.
