Back in 2007 George Bush said ”To withdraw troops from Iraq before our commanders told us to would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States and leaves the future of Iraq to Al Queda. It means we’d be risking mass killings on a terrific scale. It would establish the terrorist s to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan and cause Americans to return at a later date to confront an enemy that is more dangerous.”
In 2009 Obama released Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi from Camp Bucca and he later became the leader of ISIS today telling his guards then “See you in New York.” I guess he didn’t read a book on the Dali Lama or want to have a milk and honey farm or attend Yoga classes like the five dangerous Taliban leaders Obama released said otherwise they would have considered him a non threat too.Around that time Obama announced he was going to pull out of Iraq and gave a date and timeline.
Fast forward to today and what do you see happening? We are risking mass killings as ISIS is beheading their way to Iraq and taking over 16 cities so far. They are lining people up and shooting them. Nearly 12,000 Iraqui soldiers we trained have surrendered to an army of 800 insurgents and ran from them. Now Obama is returning there with a minimum number of troops to protect the embassy there. Many of these Iraqi people consider ISIS worse than AL Queda and Al Queda themselves have said ISIS is more militant than them.
Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.
The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.
The Jordanian officials said all ISIS members who received U.S. training to fight in Syria were first vetted for any links to extremist groups like al-Qaida.
In fact, The Fiscal Times lists five ways the collapse of Iraq could hurt the United States.
First, an Islamist state would pose a grave security threat to the United States and other Western nations. The Al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has already seized much of the northern part of the country and is moving toward Baghdad.
ISIS could use Iraq and Syria as a springboard for terrorist attacks abroad, just as al Qaeda used Taliban-controlled Afghanistan as a base for its 9/11 attacks.
Second, the turmoil could derail the U.S. economic recovery if Iraqi oil production plummets. Oil prices might skyrocket, which would then kill the recovery and even cause a recession.
Third, the crisis, a U.S. foreign policy debacle, might damage American prestige. The United States spent enormous sums in Iraq. The Obama administration pulled out of the country in 2011, apparently thinking Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki could handle the situation. Turns out it was wrong. If Iraq collapses, “it would arguably be one of the worst foreign policy disasters in the history of the country,” The Times notes.
Fourth, the conflict might damage military morale. More than 4,400 Americans died fighting in Iraq and almost 32,000 were injured, many seriously, The Times reports, citing Pentagon figures. One in five soldiers has post-traumatic stress disorder. American veterans could become dejected and angry if they believe their efforts were done for nothing.
Finally, the war might frighten financial markets, sending stocks tumbling, especially if the war spreads. Shiite Muslim Iran may enter the war to oppose the Sunni ISIS, and the conflict could cause a humanitarian crisis, as huge numbers of refugees attempt to flee the violence.
This is Jihad for world domination by Muslims. First the Mid-East, then Europe, then the US of A. This is NOT just about civil war within Iraq. They are come to a country, state and city near you and I. If you believe anything different, your head is in the sand.
Meanwhile John Kerry is talking with Iran to help them fight the Sunnis in Iraq. He wants to use drones to fight the insurgents. Donald Trump has weighed in saying that would be a bad idea saying “The United States should beware of Iran’s offer to work on solutions to Iraq’s internal conflict. Secretary of State
John Kerry on Monday expressed an interest in working with Iran on the Iraqi crisis.
Iran is “not even thinking about the United States right now. They have no respect for the United States. And they have no respect for our president. They do whatever they want. And that’s the way it is,” Trump said.

Sorry… I think I’m with Trump on this one. When we have thousands of illegals flooding over our southern border every day, I think we need to focus on that and let Iraq worry about what happens in Iraq. As some have already mentioned, we did our part to free Iraq from their dictator. Now it’s up to them to decide what they want for themselves. If they’re not willing to fight and die for their own freedom, then they don’t deserve to be free.
“The only caveat I would add to this is the following. The current administration and every administration to follow needs to put the world on notice. If our country is every attacked again like we were on 9/11; and if we can trace the attack back to your country; you will cease to exist as a country. Prepare to be vaporized. Kill yourselves and your countrymen all you want!! But leave us the hell alone.”
In past wars we always left troops behind to guide the current leaders to help govern a safe country. In Iraq we stopped guiding Maliki, announced a timeline to pull out and now you see the results. We should never have pulled out pre-maturely and never announced a pull out date. Now Obama wants to leave Afghanistan which was the one war he supported. So where is Obama during all of this? Why he’s hitting the golf ranges, but says his advisors are keeping him informed.
Well now the world is reaping what Obama has sowed.
Why are such swarms entering the U.S. illegally NOW, particularly children? Newspapers in Mexico and Central and South America are actually describing U.S. “open borders,” encouraging people to come with promises of food stamps or “amnesty.” It is textbook Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm and collapse the economic and social systems, in order to replace them with a “new socialist order” under federal control.
Carried by this tsunami of illegals are the invisible “travelers” our politicians don’t like to mention: diseases the U.S. had controlled or virtually eradicated: tuberculosis (TB), Chagas disease, dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, measles, plus more.
Illegal immigrants are overwhelming border patrol agents .When asked why they are coming here they respond to get away from gang violence and escape poverty, but agents say these are just talking points they were coached to say. Texas is averaging 500 immigrants a month and hundreds of thousands of youth are coming across on their own. Agents say they are apprehending 300-400 kids per day at the border. Where are we going to put all these people and what do they think they’ll do and stay when they get here. Some curriers are being paid $100 to take people across the river on their jet skis and just dumping them on U.S. soil. Currently they are being stacked up in military bases and empty warehouses in squalid conditions. Meanwhile the WH has no clue what to do.
