    Staying out of Iraq is what we should do.
    If you say so.

    Re: Obama Is Sending 275 US Troops To Iraq

    If these troops are just to remain around the Embassy and provide protection for American interests in the region, I have no issue with it.

    If these troops are supposed to actively engage ISIS in any ways, then this bothers me because we should not be taking Half Measures in this situation.

    I will never be able to take an organization called ISIS seriously after watching Archer.

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

    Is this how Vietnam started (after the Gulf of Tonkin incident)?
    So, being outnumbered by the insurgents, that will be 275 dead men. He needs to get American diplomats out of Iraq. This will be another slaughter of Americans which he has engineered. If he can't get us all killed, might as well get a few of us. What a sick bastard we have in the White House.

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.
    It IS a bad idea. He should be getting our diplomats back to the US!

    Obama will send around 200,000+ troops to Iraq to wage another war there. That's not up for debate--it's a fact, because he has been ordered to do so by his superiors. . .

    From what I understand, the troops are there to protect our own embassy and to serve as advisers to the Iraqis.

    With some people the poor guy can do no good no matter what. If ISIS storms our Embassy, starts executing Americans and posting videos on the Internet, its Benghazi all over again. If he keeps troops there, this is Obama's war. I honestly believe some people could care less about their country and all they care about is what's in the best interest of their political party. There are over a thousand Americans in that Embassy including one of my best friends who need to be protected from homicidal maniacs.

    I think if our embassy is attacked or it looks like ISIS is about to take Baghdad, all heck will break out. ISIS has declared war on America and said something to the effect "see you in New York." These people need to be stopped.
