Obama to Iraq: You’re On Your Own
Obama has made sure terrorists worldwide are emboldened to do anything they want.
Check it out:
President Barack Obama, shortly before the program began, made some remarks on Iraq before getting on a helicopter and going somewhere. I want to summarize for you, before playing the actual sound bites. I want to tell you what he said. It’s real simple. (impression) “You Iraqis, you’re on your own. We’re not gonna help. Well, we might, but I’m not gonna think about it ’til Monday, and you might not be here by Monday. It’s up to you.”
That’s what he said. He said, “Look, it’s up to them. We’re not sending troops in there. We might do something, but I’m not gonna figure out what it is. I’m not gonna make a decision on what it is until Monday.” He’s not even gonna consider a drone strike until Monday. “But, look, you Iraqis, it’s your problem. It’s up to you.”
That’s right. He’s going to Palm Springs to play golf. That’s what he’s doing. I’m sure there’s a fundraiser out there, too. Who goes to Palm Springs in the middle of the June? Well, he is, and it’s to play golf. But you heard him say there, “I’ve asked my national security team,” which is totally incompetent, by the way, “to prepare a range of other options that could help Iraq, and I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead.”
That means: “Monday, when I got back from golf.” But he wants to assure everybody, “This is not solely or even primarily a military challenge.” No, of course not, not when Al-Qaeda is by virtue of the use of force — this is a world governed by it, don’t forget. Ours is a world governed by the use of force, and Al-Qaeda is using force to conquer these cities, but our response is not gonna be military.
None of this is a surprise, by the way.
