Wipe ISIS Out. All of Them
*I've never been prouder of President Obama than right now. But Mr. President ISIS is no pushover. See Headline.
President Obama authorized airstrikes "if necessary" against Islamic militants if they move toward Erbil in northern Iraq where American military, diplomats and civilians are stationed.If you're going to use our powah, Use it very liberally Mr. President.
During a late night statement Thursday from the White House, the president said he's okayed "targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water and facing almost certain death." Mr. Obama explained that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in recent days has "continued to move across Iraq and have neared the city of Erbil, where American diplomats and civilians serve at our consulate and American military personnel advise Iraqi forces to stop the advance on Erbil.

*Didn't take much to reach that level, but if he bombs the living crap out of ISIS he begins filling that very large hole he's been digging.
Satisfaction that he's finally doing something? Yeah maybe that level.

so if there "isnt a military solution" to whats happening in iraq, why are we launching airstrikes, and why are there military advisors over there?

Guess our president is finding out that this whole being president thing is harder than he thought.
What an incompetent moron. He's one of those idealists that has to learn the hard way that is schema of the world isn't accurate. Unfortunately, thousands of people have had to die because of his ignorance and naivety.

It went frankenstein on them, and attacked Iraq instead of Assad.
Obama always picks wonderful people as "allies".
