WASHINGTON -- President Obama is considering airstrikes or airdrops of food and medicine to address a humanitarian crisis among as many as 40,000 religious minorities in Iraq who have been dying of heat and thirst on a mountaintop after death threats from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, administration officials said on Thursday.

We supply them? For how long?

We bomb ISIS? For how long?

The only long term solution is to airlift them to Mexico and let them sneak through the border to the US.

Cookfish wanted us to stay in Iraq forever so that the stupidity of the invasion would never become so obvious.

I hear that Iraqis would welcome Saddam back with chocolates and flowers.

Of course Obama is going to do airstrikes, it is what any good neocon would.

Oh looky here - the militants just captured the Mosul Dam. Now they can unleash a 65 ft high wall of water on the surrounding countryside and its populace. Thanks, Mr. President!

The military didn't beg, Iraq wanted the US out and Bush signed that deal.

Leaving a small army behind wouldn't have stopped ISIS. It would only have resulted in more US deaths.

What did having 150,000 troops accomplish? This is what it accomplished.

It accomplished a new government that, according to Barack, was stable, self-governing, etc. "Mission Accomplished!" We created this situation, we still had responsibility. Barry is still on the fence. Wait till the dam blows.
