Iraq...is it really over for America
By: Diane Sori
And it seems they all died in vain...or did they.
and awe'...well served and with good intentions...a war that freed Iraq
from the clutches of a brutal dictator and gave the Iraqi people a
chance at an independent, free, and sovereign nation...a chance that
Barack HUSSEIN Obama's deliberately misguided actions have taken away
from them...taken away from them at the cost of American lives.
with Iraq’s (Shi'ite) Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki now facing
political unrest as 44 members of Iraq’s parliament resigned due to
government forces breaking-up Sunni-led protests, fighters from the al-Qaeda linked group the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant have completely taken over the city center of Fallujah (where 100 Marines were killed in the 2004 second battle of Fallujah) by seizing military equipment given to Fallujah's police by US Marines. And with al-Qaeda
militants almost in total control of the provincial capital of Ramadi, you have to wonder where
did we go wrong and was the cost in American lives and in our taxpayer
dollars worth it.
The answer to the first question is easy...Barack
HUSSEIN Obama is the sole cause of the war gone horribly wrong...but the
second question is a bit harder to answer for many factors come into
play as Iraq heads into a civil war of Wahhabi Sunni vs. Shi'ite
Since the Iraq/Afghan War began on March 3, 2003, and up to
about four days ago, 4489 American troops have been killed in the almost 11
years of fighting with two-thirds of those deaths occurring in the almost five years since Barack HUSSEIN Obama usurped...I mean took the
oath of office. And more than 51,778 have been wounded, including thousands
with serious brain and spinal injuries... including those coming home
minus arms and legs...and including those with PTSD being their life
after seeing and living the horrors of war.
returning home now have to continue to fight weary as they are, but this
time they're sadly fighting their own government for their pensions and
for much needed medical care... fighting their own
government because the man who occupies the White House does NOT honor
them, their sacrifices nor does he keep promises made to them.
So as these brave warriors battle DC
bureaucracy for what is rightfully theirs, the fact remains that the money spent in tying to assure Iraq's seemingly
now lost freedom could exceed three TRILLION of our taxpayer dollars...three
TRILLION dollars for Iraq and a tooth and nail fight for our troops...all
courtesy of the Obama administration...all courtesy of a
Commander-in-Chief who is anything but.
And buried within those three
TRILLION dollars is the millions of dollars that
was spent on equipment that sits rotting in fields all over Iraq...and
this because Obama would NOT allow our troops to train the Iraqi's on
how to use said equipment for what was of paramount importance for this most
vile of men...for this most traitorous of presidents...was announcing to
the enemy the date our troops would begin and end their withdrawal, thus
assuring them victory if they just bode their time and waited for
us to leave...for as we all know America's enemies are Barack HUSSEIN
Obama's friends on whose side his allegiance always lies.
So as violence
escalates throughout Iraq, especially in the al-Anbar province where 2013 saw
the most civilian casualties in five years, and as internal security
issues worsen, Obama continues to bloviate that ending the Iraq War is
one of the main accomplishments of his administration...second only of
course to his single handed take down
Osama bin-Laden (sarcastically said) NOT caring that what he calls ending a war is actually losing a war due to his having had our troops fight that war as
per the tenets of political correctness.
But the question remains was this
sacrifice of American lives, American blood, and American limbs worth
it. Remember, some have said that this war was all about oil and making
the 'fat cats' even fatter, so for those who believe that I guess to
them it was NOT worth the cost in American lives for the war did NOT
affect Iraq’s major oil fields. In fact, Iraq is now pumping even more crude than before the war as it's increased links to wells in its
predominately Shi'ite south.
Also remember that Iraq, as much as the
Democrats want it to be, is NOT really George W. Bush's war for it was
Billy-Boy Clinton himself, who in 1998, signed the Iraq Liberation Act, making Saddam
Hussein’s removal from power a matter of US policy.
And as much as
those on the left claim that Saddam Hussein did NOT have the
chemical and biological weapons that were the major selling point for
America going to war even though the chemical weapons now in the hands
of Syria's Bashar Assad are the very ones Saddam moved out of Iraq into
Syria before the first US troop set foot on Iraqi soil...and even though
Bush's 'surge' turned the tide of the war in America's favor and helped
give birth to a fledgling Iraqi democracy... even with all this taking its
toll in American lives the war was worth fighting because abandoning what Clinton set in motion...abandoning what Bush accomplished... would have
been reckless at best... would have been un-American at worst for what
America starts America finishes...Barack HUSSEIN Obama be damned.
But do NOT think for a minute that
this war is really over as Iraq stands between Iran and Israel and for that
reason alone the Iraq war will NEVER be truly over for America.
