So let me see if I understand the logic here. Thousands of people who are on
the run from head cutting ISIS are holding out on a mountain top. We've
given them a few days supplies. And that's it? Mission accomplished?
Hagel says now no need for a rescue operation? Why? Did these people running
from the terrorists suddenly get beamed up to the Starship Enterprise? What is
going to prevent these refugees from getting attacked when they come down in a
few days or weeks? ISIS is not dead. They are not gone. This sounds like a
case of delay the inevitable, put our head back in the sand and hope no one
notices. A very incomplete picture from Obama and the administration.
Hey SCFan - So you’re very concerned about the people way
over there in Iraq huh? Why are you so concerned about the Yazidis
anyway? You’ve probably never heard of them before. I know I hadn’t.
Why the concern about people on the other side of the world, when you
“Conservatives” were so willing to send little kids back to the
cocaine kill zone of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.“Conservatives” didn’t seem too concerned about little
children fleeing for their lives from Central America. But people half a world
away are all important to you. Or maybe Republicans are just
taking the opportunity to criticize Obama for another non-scandal. Is that
it?Maybe we should arrange an airlift to the Salt Lake Valley . . .
I’m sure all the Republicans there have plenty of spare rooms to house a
few tens of thousands.
Is it just me or does anyone believe Obama when he says anything. Like it
wasn't him who pulled the troops out. If there is a junior varsity in this
story It is him.
Gary O You are full of straw man arguments, but since you somehow
connected the illegal children on our border with the people in Iraq, I will say
this. Obama is responsible for the children coming here, and furthermore is
responsible if anything bad that happens to them on the way. He could have
stopped this by informing the countries where they come from that there is no
guranteed sanctuary here and to not send children and put them in the hands of
brutal cartel people. He, as far as I know did not do that. He does not seem
to care that because of his words about dream act, thousands have tried to come
here, some not making it, and some dead. Or worse. How does that guy sleep at
night? I know I couldn't if my words had caused parents of children to do
something stupid, like try to get kids to the U.S. through Mexicopaying
money to cartels. What was it Obama said was his forign policy?
"Don't do stupid". Well, what can I say. He has.
@GaryO,Most of the people coming from the south are not escaping a
cocaine kill zone of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.They are
here for the free goodies. It was advertised on their television stations, and
churches along the border received federal funds to care for them, before they
@SC fan If you actually take time to read the article it explains exactly
why. A few point from the article 1 the actual number of people on the mountain
about 4000, most have been able to leave because the write was ended. 2 those
that remain have suffix ant supplies at this time and the aid is needed
elsewhere in Iraq, so the aid is not ending but rather being sent were it is
more needed 3 they plan to continue to monitor the situation of those that
remain in case they need further aid. It's all right there in give article
if you just slow the rage down a little.
