• HERE WE GO AGAIN: Obama May Send 500 Troops BACK to Iraq

    A few weeks ago, and just days after Islamic State thugs forced Iraq’s military out of Ramadi, President Obama had the nerve to say that the U.S. is not losing the war against ISIS.

    “No, I don’t think we’re losing,” Obama said in an interview with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg. “There’s no doubt there was a tactical setback.”

    Just a few days ago Obama admitted that he and his administration don’t yet have a “complete” strategy for defeating ISIS.

    And now, in what feels like a here-we-go-again style move, Obama is said to be preparing to approve the deployment of an additional 500 U.S. troops to . . . you guessed it, Iraq.

    “He is considering up to 500 additional troops as well as a new training base in Iraq’s Anbar province, unnamed US officials were quoted as saying,” BBC reports.

    This report has the stench of a sad irony attached to it because Barack Obama won the Democratic presidential candidacy based on the fact that he was always against the war in Iraq, and pledged to pull every last troop out of that theater.

    Alas, the reality of a growing murderous Islamic Caliphate is finally forcing Obama to eat his own politically expedient words.

    God help us all.
