Israel’s Netanyahu Advises Obama On Iraq
If there should ever be someone who is considered an expert on terrorists, it would be Israel.
Check it out:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his opposition to widescale American intervention in the Iraq crisis, advising President Obama that “when your enemies are fighting one another, don’t strengthen either one of them. Weaken both.”
Netanyahu spoke Sunday to NBC’s David Gregory about the possible U.S. reaction to the lightning offensive led by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an ultra-violent Sunni Islamist group now in control of most of Iraq’s north and threatening Baghdad.
The conflict pits the Shi’ite-led Iraqi government — nominally allied with America but also very close to U.S. rival Iran — against Sunni tribesmen and nihilistic Sunni terror groups spreading rapidly through Iraq, Syria and elsewhere in the region.
The Iraqi government has asked the U.S. government to conduct airstrikes, and President Obama has already promised 300 military advisors to support the Iraqi security forces.
