Hurry, My Golf Outing Awaits!
“barackopter-1” Landing Zone,
District of Corruption.

I wanted to take some time to give you a quick update about the situation in Iraq. Yesterday I convened a meeting with my National Security Council to discuss the situation there, and this morning I received an update from my team. Over the last several days, we’ve seen significant gains made by ISIL, a terrorist organization that operates in both Iraq and in Syria. In the face of a terrorist offensive, Iraqi security forces have proven unable to defend a number of cities, which has allowed the terrorists to overrun a part of Iraq’s territory. And this poses a danger to Iraq and its people, and given the nature of these terrorists, it could pose a threat eventually to American interests as well.
We’ll have to hurry this blather-opportunity up, I’ve got an open tee-time waiting for me! The Marines’ helicopter: “barackopter-1” is waiting, so make it short! I know that as the United States’ Chief Potentate [Ruler] (USCP), I can golf anywhere in the world~at any time~I DO HAVE SOME STANDARDS to maintain! Over the past several days we’ve seen significant gains made by ISIL, which have been in the making for the past several long months and years, stretching nearly back to my 2009 pullout of American ground forces. These observations~which we initially chose to ignore~were made by Susan Rice who finally ‘found the time’ to do her job between stints at the various ‘Sunday Shows’ spreading the obfuscations, out-right lies and deceits of the obama Regime.
Now, this threat is not brand-new. Over the last year, we’ve been steadily ramping up our security assistance to the Iraqi government with increased training, equipping and intelligence. Now Iraq needs additional support to break the momentum of extremist groups and bolster the capabilities of Iraqi security forces. We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq, but I have asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq’s security forces. And I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead. I do want to be clear, though. This is not solely, or even primarily, a military challenge. Over the past decade, American troops have made extraordinary sacrifices to give Iraqis and opportunity to claim their own future. Unfortunately, Iraqi leaders have been unable to overcome, too often, the mistrust and sectarian differences that have long been simmering there. And that’s created vulnerabilities within the Iraqi government, as well as their security forces.
As with my prior inept decisions borne of both inexperience and my socio-fascist ideology, we will be studying this situation for months-and-months, until all hope of any success is lost. As recently as January 10th, this murder and mayhem~by ISIS… or if you prefer, ISIL~as been in the news; did anyone [Rice] bother to do their job then?!? Not no but HELL NO!!
So any action that we make take to provide assistance to Iraqi security forces has to be joined by a serious and sincere effort by Iraq’s leaders to set aside sectarian differences, to promote stability and account for the legitimate interests of all of Iraq’s communities, and to continue to build the capacity of an effective security force. We can’t do it for them. And in the absence of this type of political effort, short-term military action — including any assistance we might provide — won’t succeed. So this should be a wake-up call. Iraq’s leaders have to demonstrate a willingness to make hard decisions and compromises on behalf of the Iraqi people in order to bring the country together. In that effort, they will have the support of the United States and our friends and our allies. Now, Iraq’s neighbors also have some responsibilities to support this process. Nobody has an interest in seeing terrorists gain a foothold inside of Iraq. And nobody is going to benefit from seeing Iraq descend into chaos. So the United States will do our part, but understand that ultimately it’s up to the Iraqis, as a sovereign nation, to solve their problems.
We’ve seen the product of my inept-inexperience coupled with the aforementioned socio-fascist ideology: The ‘way-too-early’ pullout of American troops from Iraq is the direct basis for these vast ISIS/ISIL gains in the cities of Mosul, Tikrit, Fallujah as well as Samarra.
Both you and I are aware of my ‘great love’ for the military and the resultant advice from it’s leaders. In nearly all cases, I usually chose to ignore any-and-all advice from the generals-in-charge:
At least two years ago, Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, warned that “if the Iraqi security forces are not able to put pressure on them, they [ISIS/ISIL, al-Qaeda] could regenerate.”
Quite obviously I am NOT “the smartest guy in the room,” I failed to take General Buchanan‘s analysis seriously. But hey…. It ain’t my fault; where was Secretary Clinton in all this?!? I’ll tell you where: She was still busy pedaling that tired old lie…. you remember the on-going “Benghazi was caused by ‘the video’” bullshit, right?
Indeed, across the region, we have redoubled our efforts to help build more capable counterterrorism forces, so that groups like ISIL can’t establish safe haven. And we’ll continue that effort through our support of the moderate opposition in Syria, our support for Iraq and its security forces, and our partnership with other countries across the region. We’re also going to pursue intensive diplomacy throughout this period, both inside of Iraq and across the region, because there’s never going to be stability in Iraq or the broader region unless there are political outcomes that allow people to resolve their differences peacefully, without resorting to war or relying on the United States military. We’ll be monitoring the situation in Iraq very carefully over the next several days. Our top priority will remain being vigilant against any threats to our personnel serving overseas. We will consult closely with Congress as we make determinations about appropriate action, and we’ll continue to keep the American people fully informed as we make decisions about the way forward.
This “..we have redoubled our efforts..” bullshit is just that: BULLSHIT!! When you double ZERO, you get DOUBLE-ZERO, even with the much-hated ‘Common Core!’ If I piddle-about with this Iraq problem~which is most likely, that evil George W. Bush‘s fault~I will essentially be admitting that the lives lost, the grevious injuries sustained, the blood spilt, will have been in vain!! Ah, but what’ta hell do I care… “barackopter-1” is about to leave!!
