2 years after withdrawal, Obama makes case for new military action in Iraq

President Obama announced an escalation of the war against Islamic State terrorists Wednesday night with plans to intensify airstrikes in Iraq, send more U.S. military advisers to Baghdad, provide arms to Syrian rebels and likely expand airstrikes into Syria.

“If left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region — including to the United States,” Mr. Obama said in a prime-time address from the White House. “We will conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists.”

The president ordered another 475 military advisers to Iraq, on top of 300 advisers he sent there in June and 130 U.S. personnel he sent last month to aid in a humanitarian mission.

      What’s the “oops”?

      What is our Return on Investment for the hundreds of billions of dollars we’ve poured into Iraq already? On the 4000+ American lives lost there?

      Many many months after the last Iraqi election, they’ve finally formed a government. America can’t impose a government on them. They have to do it themselves. (And Afghanistan is in even worse shape.)

      You think it’s all about bombs and tanks and soldiers. But as we fight and maybe defeat another Sunni enemy, we also help to strengthen Iran. Have you given any thought to that, or are you just hung-ho rah rah rah for bombing people?
