    These deadly militant jihadists with their heinous violence with their mad and evil mindset of the jihad for the cause of Islam Sura 2:216. 9:111,112. 47:4. Such evil madness as this is explained, in part, in the Bible. Which reads “The hearts of men are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterwards they join tthe dead.” Ecclesoates 9:3. [NIV]

    Iraqi soldiers at Mosul ran away from their duty? Blame it on Obama.
    And as a taxpayer I am supposed to pay to fix this lack of resolve?
    Count me out.

  3. What have the American achieved from intervention in Iraqu for US, Middle east of people in Iraq?

      Well, we made sure religious minorities and the middle class were driven out of Iraq and that women became second-class citizens…we created a Shiite state to replace a secular state…but AEI says throw more money!

  4. I kinda think that the US should be urging the Saudis and Turks to fix the problem. And it’s well past time that we admit that we need Assad running Syria because in his part of the world he’s a “moderate”.

    But I’m mostly upset with the Kurds. The US Army gave the Kurds de facto Kurdistan, including Kirkuk and Mosul. If the Kurds will not in fact defend their country from foreigners after all of their whining for so many years, then they deserve what they get.

    And if the idiots who run Iraq can’t find 100,000 troops from Saddam’s old army to put down invaders, then Iraq deserves whatever it gets, too.

    Hopefully, at some point the Saudis will realize that, no, you can’t just sit on the sidelines and pass out money.

  5. PM Nouri al-Maliki has long been right in his projections about the middle east, time is proving that and Syria is an example! it is worth paying attention to him when it comes to both Iraq and Syria, both nations are suffering from what can be a more serious issue for the middle east and whoever has interests in this region. A very good article by Michael Rubin, I have been following his work for a while. Regards from Iraq!
