    Goes with the territory and I'm sure our military planners are aware of it.

    Well let's hope they unite in compact groups.

    The problem with ISIL is that it is a blending of religious fanatics and disenfranchised tribes and former Saddam military people. In fact the main military leader is supposed to be a former top Saddam general. With the US bombing them, then they can use it as part of the propaganda machine to win over more tribes and people and keep the population in check.

    Because, as we all know, Obama is powerless to go against a Bush plan...

    The issue with the pullout is that Obama didn't seek a SOFA in order to keep troops in place in Iraq for the foreseeable future to keep these kinds of campaigns from happening.

    A good deal of the blame lies with the idiotic Iraqi government who wanted to throw out America so it could look butch, and part of the blame lies with Obama for not pressing the issue.

    Obama could likely get that SOFA signed now, but he won't do it.

    The people of Iraq are saddled with two countries worth of inept politicians in charge.

    Bush didn't plan the pull out. That was an Obama campaign promise, remember? What Bush did was sign an agreement to leave forces in Iraq, well into Obama's term of office, but leave it up to Obama to determine if and under what terms the troops would remain. Did you think Bush could sign an agreement that bound both America and Iraq to troops in Iraq forever and ever?

    Obama's only big-picture action was to go to Egypt, give a speech, essentially promise American support for those in the ME who wanted to fight for change, and then abandon the promise and America's role and influence in the region. Too late to put the genie back in the bottle, as the old saying goes.

    What America needs, in my view, is a conference of all parties in American government and influence to determine what is in America's best interests going forward and acting in a rational, thoughtful way rather than having circumstances dictate how and to whom America dances.

    Nothing new, are you cereal? That situation over there has been changing faster than quicksilver.

    What America needs are American opinions, because if we don't intervene and stop this now, it will come back to haunt us.
