    News from Northern Iraq today that 90 Yazidis were massacred today. Men were slaughtered and women were made slaves. This just a day after President Obama claimed the mission was ended and was successful. Really, "Mission Accomplished" well Obama lied and people died This is very sad. These people did nothing to ISIS. Just tragic.

    US conducts new airstrikes as ISIS kills dozens of Yazidis in Iraq town, officials say | Fox News
    As per usual, this isn't the whole story. Obama declared "mission accomplished" (which he kinda sorta did but not really?) regarding the ISIS airstrikes in Sinjar. This latest massacre occurred elsewhere in Iraq. Did you honestly think Obama was claiming that the ISIS threat, even in regards to the Yazidis, was over two days ago?

    The "Obama lied, people died" meme is cute, and it's really nice of you to attempt to make political hay off some very real atrocities happening to some very real people in the Middle East.

    In the beginning when we were arming Syrian rebels, it's obvious now that not a lot of care was taken to make sure the right rebels were getting equipment. That being said, we're not now (intentionally) arming ISIS. In case you missed the memo, we did start air strikes on them you know...



    I'm assuming you have no compassion for the Yazidis being slaughtered by ISIS huh? Always the cynic ey Monte?
    How'd you twist that around so. I have repeatedly criticised US policy in Syria that has strengthened and emboldened IS to be able to do the horrific things they are now doing, which is exactly what Russia and China warned would happen. I am fed up with the US military being sent around the ME. To stomp out flames that spread from fires that we started elsewhere, and a little perturbed at your support for it. Benghazi is where this started. With the CIA's covert smuggling of arms out of the annex there thru Turkey to the rebels in Syria. And Turkey, which is going backwards in terms of human rights was tasked with insuring that these smuggled arms didn't get to the "bad rebels" , well the bad rebels got em! Now, another ****ing mess facilitated by A, a policy of destabilisation, or B, years of incompetence from the American WH.

    Saddam is the more interesting question, and one I honestly don't know about. It has nothing to do with the perceived strength of the Iraqi military under Saddam, but more so with the Sunnis. ISIS wouldn't of gotten anywhere without the support (passive or otherwise) of the local Sunnis. And they were pretty well taken care of during Saddam reign. Would the Sunnis of still risen up purely based on religious reason? I don't know, but I doubt it.
    That's ridiculous too! The whole reason we got involved in both places was because they both were dealing with it, and the US wanted regime change. And you keep being gullible and thinking there's some humanitarian purpose to US involvement in the ME.

    First off, the remark of you not having compassion, was in direct response to the pink ribbon comment. The "tomahawks" would be aimed in that situation at ISIS fighters, not a particular city you know? Also, did we start the Syrian Civil War or not? Because that seems to be an important step along the way in determining just who is responsible for what in destabilizing the middle east.

    I guess that's fair. It's just when you put it succinctly into words...
