Re: for real, these are the people Obama is arming.

Are you suggesting we support the other side in this fight?

Not sure that we can be certain or convinced that you read the entire article,as it wouldn't seem that you'd have come to the conclusiono that you've seemed to if you had.

A while back the US armed Saddam Hussein as  a balance against Iran. The US invaded Iraq to over throw Saddam and his bathist party and those bathists were removed from all political power. Even from the Iraqi Armed services.

 

Thus we created a vacumn in Iraq and tried to build a new government which was supposed to form a coallition between Sunnis and Shias and a united Iraq. However the result was a constant state of unrest between the religious factions. Suddenly it was determined that our involvement require a surge which was mostly involved a payoff between the Bushies and the opposition. Buying temporary good behavior from your adversaries while you build up the Iraqi army to defend itself.

 

However once Iraq was turned over to the established government the Iraqi army dropped their weapons and chose not to go into harms way. So much for hiring locals as mercenaries with no loyalty to anyone. Iraqi government or not.

 

Ironically, Isis is mostly formed from rejected bathist supporters of Saddm hussein> So now we are supposedly going to destry Isis and create another vacumn and we will see who will fill the void the next time. It's a fruitless exercise that could have been avoided by staying the bleep out of Iraq in the first place.

 

So while you want to blame all the ills of the middle east on Barack Obama Previous american involvement over there hasn't been too positive. If you consider Iraq a manure tank and you create a vacumn there you will get more manure. It is most difficult to forecast any positive result in Iraq no matter what we do.

I don't see how we have a dog in this fight. We need to just back off and let the muslims work it out for themselves. We CAN make things much worse than they are now.
