Quite an "about-face" over Iraq

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Quite an "about-face" over Iraq

Post by Soi Dog » Mon Jun 16, 2014 10:53 pm

It amusing to see the right wingers in the US congress and Fox News now gushing over the need to make a pact with Iran over the ongoing nastiness in Western Iraq with ISIS taking control of half the country in only a few days. Just a few months they were all about bombing Iran senseless over their nuclear program. Now those same talking heads are saying "we need to sit down and talk with them". What Orwell called "double-think".

Generally I prefer white wine with a meal. If I am at a social event it is beer all night. I can drink about 10 beers so guess I am a lightweight, what's your max fellow CEO members?

The Sunni Shia sectarian conflict was always going to mean Iran allied with the US.

It's also amusing watching the lefties gunning for peacekeeping in Iraq after insisting the troops leave.

No surprise from the British perspective Tony Blair is being very vocal in that respect.

Tony Blair is a cocksucker, and not even a good one.

I'd tell him that to his face, if I could speak poodle.

I have not heard any lefties calling for more troops on the ground, except to bolster US Embassy defenses and a few more ships to the Gulf. The most they will do is allow airstrikes.

But you're right, no one looks good in this situation. It was an ill conceived fuck story from day one.

Apparently ISIS took over the bank in Mosul. They are now sitting on nearly half a billion dollars of cash, in addition to all the weapons and vehicles left behind by the hapless Iraqi Army.
