Brian Faughnan ?@BrianFaughnan 42s

The president is *very* focused on the long term solution. In the short term, jihdadi terrorists may take over Iraq.



John Hayward ?@Doc_0 42s

Obama apparently thinks ISIS is invading Iraq because they're disappointed at the lack of compromise from its government.

"This isn't something that's going to happen overnight." So when ISIS takes Baghdad on Monday...



John Hayward ?@Doc_0 46s

Obama just said the terrorist killers invading Iraq are "not acting in a way that's conducive to long-term stability."

Seems as if that entire POTUS appearance was simply to reassure public that no troops will be sent. No news.

Catastrophe
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

yep...when Obammy says a war is over, then by God that war is over, and it doesn't matter what evidence there is that proves him wrong...
