    Well, we know Obama learned ONE THING from The Cheney/Rumsfeld Administration…repeat the useless catchphrase long enough and loud enough, and anyone will believe it!

    No bombs on the ground.

    3rd panel. “BOOOOTS” said like “BRAAIIINS” and that face. I am so sick of hearing references to zombies.

    Who’s up for bets on how long it will take until we realize the Iraqi army has no interest in taking on ISIL?

    If you really want boots on the ground, put a pair on and go there.

    For the general public, it’s already been realized. For our government and our military, maybe never.

    It’s fascinating that many of the same people who say that giving welfare to people makes them dependent seem to want us to use our military to defend our “allies” (many of whom have no desire to lift a finger to help themselves) in the Middle East forever, and can’t see the parallel.

    Very much like in Viet Nam: if the natives have no desire to help themselves, no amount of our help will matter.

    Until the people whose countries are being over-run by terrorists stand up to them, or at least determine that it must be done, all we here in the US can do is pour our resources and the lives of our military personnel down the sewer. We tried that. It didn’t end well in Viet Nam. It didn’t end well in Iraq, and it doesn’t seem to be ending well in Afghanistan. Why would anyone be willing to propose failed policy to make up for failed policy?

    The Kurds led the Islamic army against the Francs and won a big victory in 1187. They fought for Lawrence who promised them a homeland.


    But the Brits wanted to re-create the Raj, where most will not work with anyone from a different linguistic, ethnic, or religious group, or even with someone from the same ethnic, linguistic, and religious group but a different caste. Just 10,000 British imperial officers managed to rob 400 million Raj colonials blind. So Sykes and Picot formed Mandates out of chunks of different Ottoman villayets so everyone would hate everyone else. But, even though they hated each other, unlike the Indians, they hated the European imperialists even more and kicked the Brits out of Iraq. Then the US kicked the Brits and Frogs out of Palestine and the Levant.


    Now, the US has agreed to put the Kurds on the list of terrorist groups, as requested by the Turks.


    The Turks, who are mostly Sunni, hate the Kurds, who are mostly Sunni. The Arabs, both Sunni and Sh’ia, hate the Kurds. The Iranians, mostly Shi’a, hate the Kurds. And it looks like a large number of Kurds will soon be killed by the DA (formerly the Da3sh or ISIS), which will be a ‘big win’ for the US and its allies in the Middle East.


    So the spokesperson for the Obama administration is just telling the truth.

    In Viet Nam, the Viet Cong were “Communist insurgents”, or just commies. Today, anyone who opposes the countries we support, or ourselves, is “terrorist”. A small group like McVeigh and Nichols in Oklahoma City, or bin Laden and a small group highjacking aircraft are “terrorists”. An army made up mostly of those we threw out of the the Iraqi army, now coming back into their own country in oppostion to a government they have reason to hate, is not “terrorsim” as at over 30,000 they ARE an “army”. Even the Sandinistas were recognized as a political military, and not just “terrrorists”, and they did hold elections, and initially lost first time around.

    Jonah Goldberg made an interesting argument that the President’s actions against ISIS are driven not by geopolitical considerations as much as they are to shore up his domestic political standing:

    I would very much like to see the President prove him wrong, but the record to date has not been encouraging.

    The Iraqi army hasn’t been up to the task of keeping the country secure since US forces disbanded the existing army and a created a new one. If they haven’t gotten it together by now, they probably never will.

    I just wanted to see how long it took somebody to drag Bush out for a beating when Obama was looking foolish. Surprisingly enough, there was only one such.
    I am actually impressed.

    Hmm, Jase99: how quickly did the Iraqi Army, other than the Republican Guard, fold back in ’91? How ’bout 2003? Should we really expect change when we threw the only ones who actually proved they would, and could, fight, out of the country, and they formed ISIL?

    So now they are even blaming the Bush administration for corrupting Obama. Sorry folks, you elected him twice, he’s your baby.
