He's not going to get anywhere near the amount of military aid that would be needed to even begin to address this.  The time for the US to do anything constructive about this is long past.  What was needed was US leadership to insist that a SOFA agreement was forged, allowing US troops to stay in the country and keep the cork in the bottle, such as it was.  Obama set the stage for all of this when he deliberately allowed the SOFA negotiations to fail, and summarily withdrew from Iraq.

The fact is that Iraq as we have known it has ceased to exist and the entire region is descending into a general civil war.  There is now nothing we can accomplish other than expedite the safe evacuation of any Americans who wish to leave, and even that effort is getting tenuous.
