PostSubject: Iraq Part III?....   Fri Aug 08, 2014 6:00 am

Airstrikes and aid against ISIS approved by the cowh... So all the rhetoric that Iraq was unnecessary under another administration is now suddenly needed?... This is the same individual along with his supporters that say...we can't be the police of the world and military intervention should not used to solve internal problems [civil wars] of other nations...There was mocking and criticism about the 'War on Terror' not too long ago...so are we at war with terrorists and is the term terrorist(s) fashionable/politically correct to use again?...

   There are some that have mentioned that former President Bush should be considered a 'war criminal' and prosecuted for his 'war crimes' under International Law.... So are these calls applicable to the cowh?

Think they've requested a long time ago... remember the cowh was thinking about what to do and had his military planners working on this a couple of months ago...it's when he added there would be no boots on the ground...

This would be a great time to put a bunch of hardened A-10 Warthogs to good use.

Oh, I forgot. Do we still have any in service?

I'd hate to see any more of our servicemen lose their lives, but we are partly to blame for this mess. Saddam Hussein wasn't a saint, but he had a somewhat stable country before we swaggered over there.

Yep, big mistake. He was a devil but it was a devil we knew. Plus he kept Iran off balance.

The A-10's are still in service but some want to get rid of them. I mean after all why fly that proven airframe when you can buy hideously expensive and unproven F-35's? The guvmint NEVER learns!

As difficult and not EVER wanting to defend a dictator like Hussein he did have the ability to keep Iran guessing and in check...You are correct....some blame '41' for not finishing the job....Clinton for ignoring....'43' for going in...and now the cowh for leaving too soon... may go back even further!....

Whatever, the decisions are to be made and lives of servicemen/women on the line...now is not the time to gut the military and allow them to do what they do and inflict destruction to this and other terrorist groups...It's long past time for this cowh to be the Commander-In-Chief and Leader....Only history will judge it he is/was up for the task...

The ONLY thing our Air Force wants to do is BOMB.  The A-10 isn't a bomber, so it will be history soon.

Bunch of idiots.  What happened to protection of our men on the ground with close-air support?  That gun on the A-10 is one HELL of a weapon and the titanium shell around the pilot has allowed many of them to return to base when other planes would have crashed and burned.

The A-10 gun... wow!  30mm 7 barrel Gattling-type cannon!

We are going to have to have another crusade.

Some historians see the Crusades as part of a purely defensive war against the expansion of Islam

information has come in from AP. The spokesman for Iraq's human rights ministry says hundreds of women from the Yazidi religious minority have been taken captive by militants from the Islamic State group.
Kamil Amin says the women are below the age of 35 and some are being held in schools in Iraq's second largest city, Mosul. He said the ministry learned of the captives from their families.




ISIS is desperate for a real war.

Not too many historians think that way.

This is an expansion of a war we should have never entered. It's nice to know everyone agrees that Bush was wrong about it, 12 years too late. Obama should have gotten us out of both Iraq and Afghanistan within 2 years of taking office. He lied about how quickly he would do it. He listened to his generals instead.

Now he's taking our pilots into harms way again.

He's spending our treasury on more war machines when we don't have the money to take care of our own people.
Just wait until one of our pilots is shot down and beheaded on TV and the American people will be screaming for us to go back to Iraq and accomplish something that never could be accomplished in the first place. All over again.

I see I'm the minority on this one too.
There would probably be no ISIS today if we hadn't left our troops in Saudi Arabia after the first Gulf War and then went into the Middle East like gangbusters because little George decided big George was wrong in not getting rid of Saddam.
WE need to get our people out of the middle east. Like Teo said, ISIS ain't coming over here on rowboats.

Beware, that's very graphic.

BTW.. they don't need row boats. They just flew over with refugee status. Some are probably coming across the open border you love right now
