Facing a deadly resurgence of al-Qaida in Iraq, President Barack Obama signaled Friday that he will begin increasing U.S. military support for Baghdad after five years of reducing it.
The new U.S. plan represents a remarkable shift for Obama, whose administration trumpeted the 2011 withdrawal of the last U.S. troops from Iraq as a major achievement and has since shifted its attention to other regional challenges, such as Syria, Egypt and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

I hope the human shields go back there.
Wrong masters.. if you want to say he’s on the side of Shiites from Iran that’s one thing, but he wouldn’t be on the side of the Saudi’s if he’s going back into Iraq and he’s been on the wrong side of the Saudi’s with his backing down in Syria too.
This looks like another way to bleed the U.S. military.
He was against it, before he was for it?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He’s a dingleberry on Abdullah’s .......
In reversal, Obama says he will boost US military support in Iraq
"Here we go again."
Thanks, Jet Jaguar and Nachum.
What reversal? He’s always up for an endeavor that’s got something in it for him. Somewhere, somehow he’ll benefit from it. He cut a deal with Maliki. Remember, Iraq is where billions of dollars were “disappeared”. What opportunist could pass that up?
When one president gets a declaration of war from congress, how long is the declaration valid? When is the war officially over? Does a later president need a new declaration?
So long welferites enlist us, islam proselytizes us and gaysbforce us to work with them, we all get conditioned to be enlisted by force and others’s wishes, be it war on drugsnor poverty, and that progresses us with a whip of progress toncommunism.
After all, he deemed the Iraqi security forces competent to handle the job.
What is Obama going to do? Send a military jeep over here?
Since he has quadrupled the American Warrior casualties with his ROEs in Afghanistan, he probably sees an opportunity to inflict further damage and erosion of morale.
——aaannnnndd he’s going to get that new money from where? A Republican House? Being a whiny snivelling wanna be about Iraq in the first place is really gonna get him some attention this time? yup! I betcha! Maliki spent his best years hiding in Iran, heaping krap on US and now he wants what?
gayness? they’re learning. They’re learning. Don’t most of them wear dresses? Sister marrying is a great start. It’s too bad we can’t separate the ones who want a better life from the ones who yearn for the 12th century. Let allah sort them out.
I don’t think that this has anything to do with Iraq. Iraq is just an excuse to base more troops in the middle east for another bigger mission. Iran? Syria?
So Obama is starting another third Iraq war?
I guess now we can say Obama lied, people died.
The problem is there are so many Obama lies, we will have a hard time choosing just one.
This makes me worry greatly for you, and all our military, Cyber Son!
