I can just hear Fox News commentators yelling about how President Obama allowed US military supplies to fall into the hands of ISIS terrorists. There was an air drop and some of the parachutes landed among ISIS soldiers. Wow! During World War II every time there was an air drop at least ten percent of supplies fell among German troops. I hate to inform Republicans, but President Obama has yet to prove that he can control the air. Naturally, if America would only elect to public office men like Ted Cruz this nation would once again be in control of air. The entire ISIS episode is blamed on failures of President Obama. Let us examine the record:
1. It was under the administration of President George Bush that former Prime Minister Nouri Maliki came to power.
2. It was under the administration of President Bush that Maliki destroyed the alliance that had been formed between Shiites and Sunnis.
3. President Obama OFFERED to retain US soldiers in Iraq. It was PM Maliki who insisted that US troops would have to be under Sharia law if they committed a crime. Just imagine what Fox News would have screamed if Obama placed American troops under Sharia law?
The entire Iraq situation was the fault of President Bush. There simply was no sensible solution to issues in the area. There are times in history when if a nation makes mistakes, they live on as mistakes. ISIS is simply a result of the Iraq war, and guess who began that blunder??
