 Obama must admit to failure in IraqWith Iraq’s future pouring into the hands of either Islamic militants or Iran, the time has come for Obama to admit his foreign policy is utterly flawed.

The leader of the free world didn’t look good after his statement to the media on Friday from the White House lawn. With the George H.W. Bush carrier group on its way to the Persian Gulf, U.S. President Barack Obama will soon have over 100 combat aircraft at his disposal around Iraq, including those based in Jordan and the Emirates, and close to 40,000 troops in various bases in the region. If needed, that number could be doubled at short notice. But when Obama admitted that “short term military action, including any assistance we might provide, won’t succeed,” he wasn’t just making excuses.

The new situation in Iraq – where the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), along with local Sunni militias, have taken control of wide swathes of the country’s north-west – symbolizes the total failure of the Obama administration’s military strategy over the last five and a half years. Obama is effectively out of military options.

The Obama strategy in fighting terror in the Middle East, Africa and Afghanistan-Pakistan, was based on three major components – all which are now proving irrelevant in facing the challenge posed by ISIS.

The first component was building new independent armies. Before U.S. forces finally left Iraq in December 2011, the administration invested huge resources in building up Iraq’s new army, in training and unprecedented quantities of military hardware. Washington invested a total sum of around $25 billion to develop Iraq’s military. Now we can see the results: convoys of American-made army vehicles (some with Israeli-developed armor) captured by ISIS and making their way to its strongholds across the border in Syria. In at least one case, a Blackhawk helicopter supplied to Iraq was filmed flying under what was reported to be ISIS command. This costly army disintegrated – its Shia troops (those who were not captured and summarily executed) fleeing south and the Sunnis changing sides. Now the Iraqi precedent is haunting the United States, which is investing in a similar way in the Afghan army before leaving there by the end of the year.

The second component is replacing the large units – the “boots on the ground” – with unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones. The drones hit terror targets of organizations affiliated with Al-Qaida, the Taliban and other Islamist groups. But drones can only be used against pinpoint targets, small cells in diffuse movements. Long-term intelligence work is required to locate these targets and the United States just doesn’t have this sort of knowledge on ISIS. And even if it did, it probably couldn’t significantly damage an army numbering by now over ten thousand fighters (with all the volunteers who have joined following its recent success). Even if the United States uses its heavier, manned airpower, or launches Tomahawk missiles – as Obama threatened last year in Syria following the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime – ISIS is not yet an organized regime, so it doesn’t have the state infrastructure that could be bombed from the air. And the risk of harming civilians instead of fighters and commanders is very high.

The third component – “leading from behind,” as the United States did in Libya and to a lesser degree in Syria, by aiding other nations that were supporting the rebels much more openly – is unappealing in Iraq. The only nation willing to support the al-Maliki government against ISIS is Iran, whose troops are already in the field. When the alternatives left to Obama are to allow Iraq to disintegrate into at least three different states, with a movement even more radical than Al-Qaida controlling oil-rich regions and the borders with Syria and Jordan; or to support its transformation into full-fledged Iranian satellite, the time has come to announce the ultimate failure of his military strategy and foreign policy

    Dear Obamaphobes.
    It ain’t only Obama’s failure but it’s a premature ejaculation after burning out one trillion he gifted to Ayatollatts as Iranian Bitch State.
    Washington can’t be trusted not only for being dishonest but for being ain’t adult enough to survive overseas.
    Obama is poodled by greed and Birkenau Bastards who draw their foreign policy for Israel.
    J.R. Salzman ain’t a hero he’s unemployable Jew who got a job as fuel convoy Humvee driver in Baghdad for the Marine and by either sheer Stooopidity or over masturbation he lost one arm.
    Since he’s a Jew he’s knighted a war hero and got mugshot with Potus. Israelis looted Obamacare to patch him up.
    I pass! Obama ain’t my favorite belly dancer.
    This breaking ain’t but an early Symptom of Obamaphobic Placebo Syndrome.
    It’s a kind of reeky rectum rash after Republican’s Rednecks, their Honigga and Latino Janitors failed to fuck Obama by exploiting lethally boring jokes: here you go…
    Born in Kenya. WTF!
    Religion: Muslim. Who cares? Damn you! He shot Osama 8 years old corpse in the face to prove he’s Quaker.
    Wealth: $4B from renting Lincoln room to pedophile Gazillionaires and another billion for posing nude for Spielberg in King David hotel in Jerusalem.
    Sexuality: Tranny.
    His favorite Fellatio Partners; Rahm Emanuel and Justin Bieber.
    His favorite Dildo: Michelle Obama
    Dishonesty: Compared to Bernie Madoff. Colossal.
    Mindset: David Duke.
    Now you can go ahead and milk your prostate.
    Take it easy girls! It ain’t funny Assholes.
    Be patient it’s another 18 months to get Ann Coulter or Sarah Palin to the White House and turn it to carwash unless he’s FDRed third term by the Republicans if he passed keystone and nuke Yellow Stone for oil.
    The Republican will get the White House if they shoot David Duke in the head who’s contesting Jeb Bush in 2016 Primaries in Des Moines, Iowa or else they need the resurrection of Winston Churchill to nuke Muslims.
    The dumbass frogmarched US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt the Jackass-in-Wheelchair then to take the lives of 63 million Europeans in 19 months to ship out few Jews who are fucking America as we speak.
    Let me cruise you deep into US Fuckocrasy.
    Take it from an Arab.
    “Listen to your enemy. Jackass!” Ron Paul. Just kidding!
    GOP are party of Rednecks and their Honiggas & Latino Janitors who believe that Ann Coulter is Virgin Mary, Sarah Palin is Mother of God and Jesus resurrected as Rush Limbaugh after Ronald Reagan ascended to heaven. Their church is FOXNEWS.
    GOP religiously BELIEVE that America ain’t but a British Colony and Americans are Monsanto force-fed livestock grassing on their backyard.
    They’re Pro bono publico UNLIKE DEMs, they ain’t needing to be bribed in advance.
    GOP are the best to use the 2nd Amendment if you don’t or they let you pump iron in San Quentin until next draft.
    DEMs are party of Israeli Firsters, literally Liberal Hippies nutjobs and their bleached Niggas who’ll go to any war or loot any country if they ain’t allowed to even tax cockroaches for being Americans.
    Print money outta thin air and dump unemployables onto federal payroll to turn USA to Oppressive, bloodthirsty, predatory Nation alas USSR.
    Compared to GOP they are cheaper to bribe.
    Teeebaagerzz: Foodstamps Kochsuckers who quit watching Alex Jones and sleeping across the aisles if they ain’t allowed to filibuster DEMs for Koch Brothers favor or fuck GOP if they ain’t either repeal Obamacare or government shutdown.
    Liberalism is Trust Fucked with Prudence. Conservatism is Distrust Tainted with Fear
    [Our secret] haha…
    DEMs & GOP have one thing in common: both ain’t hesitating to fuck America for Israel.
    US Foreign Policy:
    Friendly country: Hire Rednecks and their Honiggas & Latinos Janitors, Eat Monsanto, stock PantagonJunk and most importantly; let Israelis fuck you.
    Enemy Country: who ain’t?
