From the ridiculous to the ridiculouser

Barack Obama said Friday that his national security team will soon provide him with a list of ‘selective actions by our military’ to help push back a terrorist horde marching through Iraq, but insisted that ‘we will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat’ there … But he emphasized that Iraq’s government should ‘solve their own problems.’ … Former President George W. Bush, his predecessor who sent U.S. servicemen and women into Iraq by the tens of thousands, is determined to hold his tongue … Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, is not traveling with him to North Dakota, Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One.

Anyone in the U.S. military who expected to achieve anything through this invasion and retreat must have been smoking something good. If we weren’t going in to take over the country, if all we were going to do was have our military sweep in, kill several hundred thousand Iraqis, and then leave, what did we think would happen after we were gone? We pull out and the Sunni Muslims move in and make it worse than when Saddam was in power in the first place. Calling on Iraq’s government to solve their own problems is a joke.

Saying that we won’t send troops back there is a joke too. Watch the barrel price of oil. You can bet we’ll do something about it with our military.

About elmoshangnaster

The name's a dodge simply because 1) on the internet I can be whomever I choose, and 2) I'm just paranoid enough to keep scoundrels and government out of my business and don't care to sort 'em out from the decent folk. My blog, my opinions. Don't like 'em? Sure, kindly tell me about your far-fetched, idiotic beliefs...kindly. In the end we'll neither of us change the others mind, but I will take the time to read your arguments if they're thought out in a rational fashion and not full of hyperbole. I'm a Christian human being. It's not a flavor or color preference, it's who and what I am. Don't like it? The above considerations apply. I'm not about to waste anyone's time or mine shoving Christianity down their gullet if they demonstrate even the least resistance. When someone's ready to hear I'm only too glad to share. The Gravatar? It's Jenny Lake in the Tetons near Jackson, WY. If God had a house that's where it would be.
