"Unless Iraq wakes up and institutes political reform US forces will not intervene to [crush al Qaida] and end the conflict," says Obama.
In saving feckless, incompetent Maliki's prime ministership our reckless president doomed Iraq to worse than pre-surge sectarian turmoil verging on all out civil war and regional chaos.
Who lost Iraq? The answer is simple: George Bush broke Iraq then fixed it. Then Barack Obama (the greatest US enabler of Iranian power) broke it all over again-and maybe worse than before. How? By recklessly intervening in Iraqi politics in 2010 and (joining with Islamonazi Iran) effecting the outcome of the national election. What did Obama do? Kowtowing to Iran's supreme (terrorist) leader he stupidly defied Iraq's strife weary electorate who wanted reform and reconciliation (and voted in a close election for national unity candidate Ayad Allawi) and made sure that the disastrous status quo was maintained: that miserable, incompetent, divisive, Nouri al-Maliki (Iraq's anti-Western, pro-Iran, fundamentalist Shiite prime minister) continued in power.
Iranian puppet PM Maliki at news conference in March 2010 pointing to the photos of two al Qaida leaders killed by US/Iraqi forces. "We're not sliding into civil war and I'm the man that's preventing that," said Maliki.
Thanks to the blundering, politics driven, weakling in the White House who's been uselessly trying (through diplomacy, sanctions, and butt-kissing appeasement) to stop terrorist Iran from going nuclear Obama caved into Ayatollah Khamenei's demands to keep Maliki (a one time refugee in Iran) as Iraq's puppet head of state. What phony concessions and promises Iran made to Obama is anyone’s guess. But what is clear is that Obama swallowed the offer hook, line and sinker and joined terrorist Iran to ensure Sunni hating, Shiite extremist Nouri Maliki's survival in power.
Iraqi National Movement's leader and reformer secular Shiite, Sunni-backed Ayad Allawi (feared and hated by Iran and deserted by the US) was robbed by Obama and Iran of the prime ministership in post-election backroom politics.
And now the chickens are coming home to roost as a completely demoralized Iraqi army loathing their hyper-partisan, paranoid Shiite leader can't defeat the dreaded, death-loving, Sunni-backed soldiers of ISIS as they sweep over Iraq in murderous rage en route to Baghdad. In short, after stupidly backing Iran's man against Ayad Allawi (a true pro-Western, uniter, reformer and anti-Iranian patriot), Obama is calling for political reform as a necessary precondition for intervening militarily in Iraq to defeat ISIS. It's mind-boggling. Is it too late for Iraq? Is the country irreversibly polarized and plunging into sectarian civil war? Has the hour passed for the good Ayad Allawi to reverse what Obama and Iran did to him and save Iraq? The situation is bleak.
