There are no good guys left in Iraq.  What DiFi is proposing is what has been described as "acting as Iran's Air Force".  As irrational as it may sound, Obama has gotten the US into the position of being allied with our former enemy, Iran, against one of our former strongest allies, Saudi Arabia, with all of it taking place next to and within the borders of Syria, who is embroiled in the fourth year of their civil war.

The time for direct action was back when Obama walked away from a failed SOFA in Iraq and began the long slide to where we are now.

What you are seeing in Iraq right now is what can be accurately described as the "Joe Biden Doctrine".  Biden pushed the idea of partitioning Iraq from the beginning, and his many comments on this subject are but one of the foreign policy opinions former Defense Secretary Bob Gates described Biden as being wrong about over the last forty years.

The next thing to watch out for is the Turkish Army to descend upon Kurdish Iraq as soon as they declare themselves an independent Kurdish Republic.  Turkey will not stand for it as they consider all Kurds to be terrorists and they will move against Turkish and Iraqi ethnic Kurds with extreme prejudice.

"I think it's most important that the Maliki government be replaced, and that includes Mr. Maliki with a reconciliation government," she said. "Based on all I've heard, read and know, Mr. Maliki is not able to bring about reconciliation in that country.

Oh yes, I'm quite sure they have the time and resources to set up an election for his replacement right now.
