Obama Sends American Soldiers Back To Iraq
Last Friday, President Obama announced that he would be sending no troops to Iraq to counteract the insurgency of radical Islamist terrorists known as ISIS, who the U.S. originally trained and armed to overthrow the Assad government with his full support. During an extended Father's Day weekend in California where the President attended a political fundraiser and played some more rounds of golf, he had a change of heart. Yesterday, he announced he would send troops to Iraq after all. The President assures us that the 275 troops equipped for combat are only there to provide security to U.S. diplomats and embassy personnel. As things spiral out of control in the Middle East largely because of our own failed policies, the government-run media is doing all it can to shift Americans' attention to the World Cup in Brazil where the U.S. beat a team from the impoverished country of Ghana in a preliminary match so we can watch pathetic sports nuts chant "USA." In other news, Rome burns.
