    It's official. Obama's legacy is that he's totally incompetent.

    Re: Obama Is Sending 275 US Troops To Iraq

    The man is sending 250 troops to prop up an embassy that may come under siege. For all those who think this is a bad idea, I hope you aren't the ones asking for Hilary's head because she screwed up Benghazi. For all those asking answers for how Benghazi can happen, how one of our ambassadors can be killed, you should be cheering this action.

    I will say this is the best decision the President and his team made in this crisis.

    250 men were enough to save the Ambassador's life in Saigon.

    Re: Obama Is Sending 275 US Troops To Iraq

    Remember when Obama's detractors were saying that telegraphing the US troop withdrawal from Iraq simply signaled the enemy how long they needed to wait before attacking?

    Here is the ISIS violence in Iraq by month (Troop Withdrawal completed in December 2011):

    US sending 275 troops to Iraq | Fox News



    So, it's official...he went from 'no troops' to '275 troops'.

    Is this how Vietnam started (after the Gulf of Tonkin incident)?
    Part of those are to defend our embassy, something the right was bitching about Benghazi. First you guys complain he didn't defend Benghazi and now you are complaining he's sending troops to protect our embassy. Nice.

    The other are specialf forces to train folks in Iraq.

    For some on the right, they will bitch about Obama no matter WHAT he does. In this case, it's the right thing to do. I gurantee if the embassy in Iraq was attacked and he didn't send troops, many on the right would be bitching about "it's another Benghazi!"

    If he sends troops you will bitch.
    If he doesn't send troops and the embassy is attacked, you'll say it's another benghazi.
    If he withdraws all the troops, you'll say he is a failure.
    If he keeps troops there you'll gripe about how he hasn't left Iraq.

    Pure Obama Derangement Syndrome is on display with you. This is why many on the right are not taken seriously. They will gripe no matter WHAT Obama does.

    I would not bitch about him not sending troops. You are wrong there, like most times.
    And his is a failure.
