    And if the Iraqi government wants Iranian help or at the very least doesn't oppose it, it isn't a problem we should just arbitrarily intervene in.

    Well, I don't have any trouble with the Iranians going in and taking out terrorists. Lets see if they can do what they say.

    As for us working with them.....it shouldn't even take place. Nor should Iran be allowed to leverage us with such a situation.

    Their remarks were more of an insult as to if would have took care of the terrorists when they were in Syria. This wouldn't be taking place. Moreover it was questioning the US about taking care of terrorists where we want to and not so much where we should.

    We don't "owe" him anything. I never said we did.

    And technically they are correct. How many terrorist cells do we have operating in Africa that we do nothing about. Look at the terrorism that is done to the people of NK, China, etc.

    Our Mantra is to take care of things where WE want and not were we should. We only take out terrorists if it is in OUR interest. They are absolutely correct about that.

    Look both sides people overseas have been outwitted and outplayed. But bottomline is BO knew this was going on in Iraq All last year. He knew even when he released the Taliban leaders. he also knew all that was going on in Syria.....didn't he? He knew what aid he gave was going to ISIS and al Nusra. He knew 88.....people have to get off the prior mistakes.

    2 wrongs isn't going to make it Right.

    But now all the lives damaged and paid for, everything brought to that point. Would be a slap in the face of ALL who went to get rid of a Madman.

    Which says nothing about the political vacuum being left Open for Russia to refill what they had lost.
    Two wrongs don't make a right, and personally I wonder if Obama knows anything about what's going on. Dude's making Bush look like Einstein (THAT takes some doing).

    Russia will only be involved through their influence in Iran. Basically though, we created a vacuum and filled with a system that was bound to be tilted towards Iran. There's nothing we can really do about that unless we go back in time. Interestingly, if you want a government that's NOT tilted to Iran, you want these Sunni militants to take over. I think either way is a losing situation.

    hmm, the Kurds aren't a threat to Baghdad and the the lesser threat between them and ISIS. Seems to me those airstrikes could have been more useful against ISIS. Someone isn't using their head in Baghdad. Of course if someone in Baghdad had used his head over the last three years or so, this may not be happening.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I have ongoing events here Pero. But yeah the Iraqis bombed the Kurds. Said a bunch of them were acting funny. This was after the Kurds transported a couple Generals back to Baghdad.

    Already Bombs are going off in Baghdad.....we are evacuating most personnel from the Largest Embassy in the World too.

    I don't think any countries should be handed to the Sunni.....they want to go and take something. Let them Earn it.....and lets see if they can actually man up.

    Just you wait and hear the Sunni.....once they start getting gangstered. The whining and wailing will never stop.

    The whining and wailing in Iraq will never stop anyway. It's just who does it. We needed to force a power sharing structure between Sunni and Shia on them 10 years ago. Right now, either or will be in power and the other side will whine and wail because they're out of the loop.

    Sunnis aren't necessarily bad. Saudis are Sunni, I think also Kuwait, Jordan...most of our allies over there. Sunnis are the majority in Islam.

    Yeah I know they are.....their also the ones. That all thought were Moderate and into Democracy to. A Lesson all have learned to be false. Check out the other link I showed.

    Like I was telling Pero.....it didn't stop the Iraqis bombing the Kurds even though they were helping them.

    Plus don't forget the Turks have had their people taken too.
