    He "****ed up"? No I'm denying your claim that we gave no increased aid in 2013. We did. Maliki asked for it in November and it was received in December... I personally think we shouldnt be involved in this conflict, period.
    The fact is that there are problems throughout the world and the US is involved whether they want to be or not, but the less bright elected a ineffective, inexperienced and not very bright leader based on a fictional 'war against women' , or some other 'issue' where they became easily sidetracked..

    If anything good comes out of this it might be that the electorate may give some thought to the real issues and choose some real leaders before they cast their votes.

    Point being?


    Oh my claim, did you forget was put out by the media all up until Dec? Also I claimed they didn't get any of it until 2014. Can you show me where they received the shipments in Dec of 2013.
    Yes
    From the Seattle Times article that was published on December 25 of 2013: "A shipment of 75 Hellfire missiles was delivered to Iraq last week, reconnaissance drones are to be delivered by March and U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials say they have mapped the al-Qaida network in Iraq and are sharing this information with the Iraqis."
    They arrived the week before this article was published in 2013.... U.S. sending weapons to Iraq to help curb al-Qaida advances | Nation & World | The Seattle Times

    Yeah I know you do personally.....but you seem to have a bit of trouble when Admitting BO was in the wrong and what he knew.
    What "wrong"? My opinion is he is in the wrong and you are in the wrong.

    You dont know that
    Lmao. So Isis know 1500 troops are going to Iraq. Isis knows they are gonna train troops. Isis is likely going to attack them with bombs. But there is a good chance our guys will get into firefights with them. Thinking our troops are going to be contained to and advisory role and not fire at enemy combatants is simply naive.

    Our guys shot back as advisors in Vietnam. They will here.

    Are you on the ground there? Do you have secret sources? How do you know they haven't been? They won't be publicizing shootouts in Iraq. Most the personnel there is security. Again. Thinking our guys won't be doing any shooting is naive.

    Will they be carrying guns?

    Im guessing yes. However that does not mean they will actively be set out into the battlefield...

    Ok. So they will have guns. Why? Like I said. It is naive to think they won't be shooting at Isis. Even in a limited capacity.

    Naive? No. However we have had military advisors at many locations in our past, and many have been in Iraq before the current announcement, and they have not been in combat..
