Non-Muslim minorities are facing genocide all across Iraq, and the Obama administration says there are “no military solutions.”
“The thing that’s important, again–and it is important for all your viewers to understand this,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday, “there are no military solutions to the very difficult problems that exist in Iraq now. The American people cannot solve this problem for the Iraqi people. The only solution that exists is an Iraqi political solution.”
“And that’s why the United States stands ready to support the Iraqi Government and Iraqi people, when an inclusive Iraqi government is formed,” he added.
However, that “inclusive” Iraqi government might never come to be. And by taking all military options off the table, President Obama is basically green-lighting genocide.
Last month, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) accused ISIS of genocide for “systematically targeting Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq for extinction.”
At a time like this, the last thing that Obama should be promising is no military action.
