Can anybody calm Obama down?

Postby Ready-for-the-worse » Sat Aug 08, 2015 6:39 am

I bet you must be already sick and tired of blaming Obama threads, but I'm a newbie here and really need to speak out. :wall:
Within my knowledge America has never had such an indifferent and irreverent leader as Obama.
Some people may say that he has to stand on his legs cause we're facing the really dark times. But what shall we do if he's the one who provoked that situation?

Barack, where the f**k were you your first term?

"What I said is absolutely true factually. The truth of the matter is, inside of Iran, the people most opposed to the deal are the Revolutionary Guard, the Quds force, hard-liners who are implacably opposed to any cooperation with the international community," Obama said in an interview that will air on "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on Sunday. "The reason that Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the folks in his caucus who opposed this, jumped out and opposed this before they even read it, before it was even posted, is reflective of an ideological commitment not to get a deal done. In that sense they do have much more in common with the hardliners who are much more satisfied with the status quo."


McConnell just absolutely sonned into oblivion. Wow.

Idiots can't make a good deal. Look at the Bergdahl fiasco.

Obama is absolutely correct on this score. The GOP is putting party before country, as per the usual. Obama just hasn't got any reason to try to sugar coat it anymore.

f**k 'em.

Give it time. If the GOP wins the General we'll see boots on the ground in Iraq massing on the Iranian border.

Tehran pulls the strings in Iraq, so a American build up and eventual invasion of Iran based out of Iraq is very highley unlikely. Nice attempt at sensationalism.

If the US wants to use Iraq as a base from which to invade Iran...there isn't much Iraq or Iran can do about it. Its not sensationalist at all. Its just geographically a lot easier than doing an amphibious invasion from the Gulf, and a lot easier than trying to go the long way from Afghanistan. Which would assume Pakistan plays nice with their airspace. And why would they?

So, the U.S. Is just going to barge back into Iraq, and launch a invasion of Iran? Ya, not so much.
And yes, Iraq can say no. Which they would certainly say. Nobody in the international community would support, an invasion of Iran. And the U.S. would have to pretty much have to invade Iraq to springboard into Iran. So yes, claiming up a invasion of Iran via Iraq, is not only unrealistic, it would be idiotic.

Only because we haven't sold it to them yet

The Iraq debacle has runined any chance of the U.S. launching preemptive war, anytime soon. Clearly there's some irrational fear permeating this thread.
