    Obama, With Reluctance, Returns to Action in Iraq

    Obama, With Reluctance, Returns to Action in Iraq
    By PETER BAKERAUG. 7, 2014

    WASHINGTON In sending warplanes back into the skies over Iraq, President Obama on Thursday night found himself exactly where he did not want to be. Hoping to end the war in Iraq, Mr. Obama became the fourth president in a row to order military action in that graveyard of American ambition.

    So Obama pulled out of Iraq at all costs, and this is the result.

    This is what happens when people vote for Democrats.

    Love how many conservatives are promoting how great life would have been if America had just stayed in a perpetual war forever to score cheap political points.

    No they leave the place worse than they found it and then blame everyone else.

    So the two options were Obama leaving the region to terrorists (which he picked) or perpetual war? False choice, much?

    Actually, Obama tried to extend the SOFA agreement but due to the contraversies re: Americam Miliary contractors and immunity from Iraqi prosecution the SOFA agreement extension was denied by the Iraqi government.

    Sorry thats untrue-Obama could have obtained the SOFA agreement-its not some insurmountable task-and the Iraqi's and our own military advised him to stay in iraq. Note how fast it came along when we sent in special forces.

    Obama surrendered victory to the same group beheading christian children in egypt.

    It doesn't matter if Iraqi military advised him to stay. They fact of the matter is he did in fact try to extend the agreement on the grounds that ALL American forces (military and contrator) were immun to Iraqi persecution. The Iraqi parliment refused to grant that and so never extended the SOFA agreement.... seriously... you can look this up. Obama supporters were furious that he was trying to extend the stay.
    link]U.S. Troops Are Leaving Because Iraq Doesn't Want Them There - The Atlantic
    from wiki:
    As reported on Saturday, October 15, 2011, the Obama Administration proceeded with the plan to withdraw American forces from Iraq (barring some last-minute move in the Iraqi parliament when they returned from a break in late November 2011 shortly before the end-of-the-year withdrawal date) because of concerns that they would not have be given immunity from Iraqi courts, a concern for American commanders in the field who also had to worry about the Sadrist response should troops stay and the general state of Iraq's readiness for transfer of power. link
    and another link

    Another partisan story, how creative.

    Let's see, Obama does not send troops into a situation that he may not have known about (Benghazi) and there is a months and months long complain fest by the republicans/conservatives in congress.

    Now, a lot of Americans in possible danger and loads of the worlds most favorite people to the conservatives (Christians, what else) and Obama chooses to do airstrikes? And what do the conservatives/republicans do? Whine about him daring to take action in Iraq.

    Let's be honest, if Obama decided to but border forces up at the border to keep all those illegal immigrants out he would be trashed by the conservatives/republicans for taking away the freedom of the Southern states by deploying Obama's jackbooted dictatorial occupation army in the South to revenge slavery and out of hatred for the conservatives living there. Obama can never do anything right so I think he should just do what he thinks best and ignore the tea party and a large part of the republican party.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!
