America is Acting Insane

Our Congress and Obama are total schizophrenics. No one has any idea of what anyone else is doing. They tie themselves into knots trying to convince us we are the problem. We are not the problem. When only 37% approve of BO’s foreign policy there is a huge problem with the administration, not the 57% who disapprove. While he mocks “climate deniers”, goes on vacations, and plays golf, the people he should be governing are kept in the dark.  Kerry, in the meantime is off reading poetry about the oceans.

BO will be giving a speech today on Iraq. It will be as confusing and non-coherent as the rest of his speeches. Just to give some historical perspective on the Iraq invasion….from Instapundit

Talk about schizophrenic.

 

The biggest barrier to sending in troops or bombing/droning in Iraq is the simple fact disaffected Sunnis (our allies) have joined in to fight the Maliki Shiite government. See, that government has abused the Kurds and Sunnis since BO’s missteps in leaving Iraq and, have aligned themselves with Iran. If BO thinks being as divisive in foreign policy as he has been concerning domestic policies, he has to know it isn’t working in America’s best interests.

There was general agreement on the panel that we haven’t been very good at “coercive diplomacy,” as Ross put it. Hannah observed that “over the last three years the Iranians have done pretty well.” Indeed, the administration’s willingness to bug out of Iraq and Afghanistan with no residual troops; allow Iran free rein in Syria; permit Iran to continue sponsorship of terrorism with no real consequences; and give sanctions relief with no permanent dismantling of its nuclear program has conveyed the impression the United States is unwilling to assert its influence and protect its interests.

Even our “liberation” of Libya is questionable. That particular government is outraged at the abduction of one of its citizens, Abu Khattala, and wants him released immediately, even though he was complicit in the murder of a US Ambassador and three others. A Conversation with Abu Khattala before his capture. Libyan Government Demands U.S. Return Detained Benghazi ‘Mastermind’.

The government of Libya is demanding that the United States return Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a man the Obama administration is calling the “mastermind” of the September 11, 2012 attacks on the American embassy in Benghazi, calling the arrest an “infringement” on Libya’s sovereignty.

 

The spread of rot that is political Islam is happening all over the world, death and fear used to political advantage by the Islamic death-cultists to overpower and gain political advantage.

Whether in its support for Assad’s chlorine-gas attacks in Syria or in its own numerous atrocities at home and across the world, Iran has no qualms about using death and fear as political weapons. A case in point is Iran’s plot in 2011 to blow up a crowded restaurant in Washington, D.C., in order to kill a Saudi diplomat. Former CENTCOM commander James Mattis tells the story here.

Of course, it isn’t only ISIS and Iran. In Yemen, fighters from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) film themselves massacring unsuspecting villagers. In Kenya, Al-Shabaab has just murdered fans watching the World Cup. In Nigeria, Boko Haram slit throats and kidnaps children. (A celebrity-led hashtag campaign has thus far rescued no children.) In Beirut, Iran’s ally Hezbollah casually murders its democratic opponents. These cases are just a few from the swamp of Islamic terrorism.

BO says there will be no “mission creep” in Iraq. That’s after he has already sent an aircraft carrier that does “surveillance flights” over Iraq, 275 more Marines to help guard the embassy and, now sending 300 Green Beret as “advisors” to the Iraq military.  BO is hinting Maliki must go. That worked so well in Egypt, Libya, Syria and Iraq already, so let’s try it again. Maybe he’ll draw another “red line” or tell us how the “moderate” Iran will help. The Next Chapter in Iraq: Airpower and Boots on the Ground

Always remember that delay leads to more Iranian involvement. Letting Iran appear “moderate” is beyond foolish.  Everything else concerning any other political, and diplomatic solutions for Iraq and the region is second order.  After all, the Sunnis and Shias have been killing each with whatever weapons were at their disposal since Mohammed died. Adding Islamic nuclear bombs to the mix can only multiply the horror. So much for Islam being a 21st Century religion of peace.

Get ready, there will be “boots on the ground”. This is going to get uglier very quickly.

  1. Statistics are not on the side of Islam…..More than 50 million driven from homes by war, crisis: UN …. Islam caused the problem, let them deal with their problem.

    “The globe’s self-styled leaders are lagging far behind the developing world when it comes to bearing the burden of the global refugee crisis,” said Sherif Elsayed-Ali, head of Amnesty’s refugees and migrants programme.

    “Given the economic advantages rich countries have over poor, it’s doubly shocking to see them shirking their responsibility,” he said.

    Amnesty noted that just three countries — Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey – registered a total of 1,524,979 refugees from Syria alone last year.

    In contrast, it said, the 28 countries of the European Union have pledged to resettle less than 30,500 Syrians — with Germany taking the vast majority at 25,500.

    Amnesty slammed China and Russia for taking in no refugees at all in 2013, despite being the two powers it said had done the most to block UN efforts to end Syria’s war.

  2. From Fars News…

    “Similar to the Taliban, they are the protégés of the US and the West and since they (the West) cannot control their terrorist moves, they always given them some room and place in the region as the result of their concern over the real Islamists’ victory in the region and their close relations with Iran,” Velayati said, addressing Chinese elites and analysts at a think-tank affiliated the Chinese foreign ministry in Beijing on Tuesday.

    He underlined that the Americans who have made miscalculations in their Middle-East policies and failed in their plots in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria and couldn’t change the result of the election in Iraq to their own interests, have now resorted to using these terrorist groups.

  3. Oh look, they might be figuring it out…”White House beginning to consider conflicts in Syria and Iraq as single challenge”…when hasn’t Islamic ideology NOT been a single challenge? Idiots, one and all.

  4. No boots on the ground? Are those Marines and Green Beret wearing sneakers? This statement on Thursday by BO makes me shudder….”If military action becomes necessary”
    He knows it will happen! Two faced lying hypocrite

    “American forces will not be returning to combat in Iraq, but we will help Iraqis as they take the fight to terrorists who threaten the Iraqi people in the region and American interests as well,” said the president.

    “Fourth, in recent days, we’ve positioned additional U.S. military assets in the region. Because of our increased intelligence resources, we’re developing more information about potential targets associated with ISIL and going forward, we will be prepared to take targeted and precise military action if and when we determine that the situation on the ground requires it.”

    If military action becomes necessary, Obama continued, “I will consult closely with Congress and leaders in Iraq and in the region. I want to emphasize though that the best and most effective response to a threat like ISIL will ultimately involve partnerships where local forces like Iraqis take the lead.”

    I want to see if anyone else observed what I thought I noticed about Barry yesterday on TV. He appeared to me to be very lethargic and sing-songy bored. His eyes were droopy and beady looking. Then he appeared to be all up and in a kidding mood when given the award to a retired vet. I noticed his nose was all shiny. I said to my self (sort of a selfie,} ah ha, he is snorting coke I bet!!! You know what? I just can’t stand to see old Barry or hear him talk on TV.

    • He doesn’t like being put on the spot and making the “hard choices” a President has to make…he’d rather be like Millard Fillmore…

    • Carole, I forced myself to watch some of the award ceremony….what an incredible young man, and how I wished that it was anyone but BO bestowing that award. It was shocking to see how BO tried to turn the event into a ha,ha humorous event. I remember GWB nearly breaking down in tears during a MOH ceremony. Weasel Zippers had a clip of BO’s new’s event this week….something like 140+ uh, uh, uhs…

      • Made himself the ‘center of it all’….he isn’t fit to be their CIC…

  6. No XL Pipeline….lots of exploding trains to screw up the environment…if that isn’t insanity I don’t know what is.

  7. “Indeed a fat lot of Mr Obama’s rather self-regarding goodness is a problem for the rest of us.”……from the Telegraph…really….really?

  8. First cargo of disputed Kurdish Iraqi oil delivered to Israel

    DEBKAfile June 20, 2014, 10:39 PM (IDT)
    The Liberia-flagged SCF Altai tanker docked at Ashkelon port early Friday and began unloading crude, according to a port source. This may be the first sale of oil by the autonomous Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) through a new pipeline to the Turkish port of Ceyhan, which was built to bypass the Iraqi national pipeline. This trade is bitterly disputed by Baghdad, which has threatened legal action against buyers. Israel has not confirmed whether it is buying the oil for its own use or storing it for transfer to another destination.

    DEBKAfile reports that Israel sympathizes with the KRG’s aspirations for greater autonomy and economic prosperity independent of Baghdad and is a willing helper. Emboldened by its army’s takeover of the oil city of Kirkuk against the advancing ISIS forces, the Kurds plan to export this new source of oil through their own outlet, since the Kirkuk outlet was sabotaged. The transfer via Ceyan to Ashkelon was eased by the greatly improved relations between Ankara and Jerusalem in recent weeks.

    Interesting is it not?

    • Shocking that the Kurds are begging us for more up-to-date weaponry and I don’t think we’ve done a thing, have we Lynn? I think the Kurds are the only ones that are going to emerge as winners….let them have their own country….at least they’re willing to fight for it. Lynn, why the improved relations between Turkey and Israel?

      • two cessnas and two hellfire missiles…
        Israel apologized for beating up the Gaza flotilla (Blair’s sister-in-law was on that boat along with Code Pink) ….Turkey needs Israel so does Jordan…Not everything is what it seems from the media hype..

      • ISIS just captured a Jordanian border town….YIKES!

        Hours before Kerry arrived in Baghdad, Sunni tribes who have joined a militant takeover of northern Iraq seized the only legal crossing point with Jordan, security sources said, leaving troops with no presence along the entire western frontier which includes some of the Middle East’s most important trade routes.

    The SS checks will now be called Federal Benefit checks. So instead of money that you paid in to SS will now seem like a welfare check. Boy it is like all the asshat politicians want America to become completely a socialistic country. I would love to kick old Barry and his socialistic fanny right out of the White House, strap 120 pounds of gear onto his hunched, skinny back and drop him out of a C141 onto the sweltering sands of Iraq.

  10. Israel goes to war, bombs military installations in Syria, over one of its citizens being killed…

    “Mohammed Qaraqra was 14 years old (or 13, in some reports). His father is a civilian contractor for the Israeli Ministry of Defense. The international media routinely ignore the fact that roughly twenty percent of Israeli citizens are Arab, that the majority of those Arab citizens are Muslims, and that a small, significant number volunteer to serve in the IDF and defend Israel against its enemies (among other forms of public service).”
