It sure could happen. Reports out this week, like this one in the Cortez Journal, say…
Candidate Obama promised to get out of Iraq day one. That, of course, didn’t happen. Instead he stuck to the George W. Bush-brokered deal, and left on the timeline previously agreed to. Even at that point, Obama made up a new term; “non-combat troops,” in leaving 50,000 soldiers in Iraq but telling America they were not “combat troops!”
We didn’t keep a military base in Iraq. We didn’t broker a deal for oil to pay us back for the war. We just left.
Since that time, the situation in Iraq has steadily become worse. If it falls back into the control of terrorists, what have we gained? If Al-Qaeda runs Iraq, what does that mean to all of the families of soldiers killed in action in Iraq?
Would the U.S. simply stand by idly, while Al Qaeda takes over Iraq? Or would we be forced into another military conflict because of President Obama’s mishandling of the war? Seems to me we have a very big problem here, and not one that is getting much attention. Mr. Obama has been a disinterested Commander-in-Chief invested in the failure of our nation’s military efforts. This is already leading to a disaster in Iraq, one the United States military will eventually have to clean up. And that, will result in the deaths of more Americans in the military.
