    Obama has no choice, Iran already has boots on the ground in Iraq fighting with the Kurdish forces. The Kurds asked the U.S. for help. The U.S. refused to help the Kurds directly and imposed a restriction that arms would be provided to the Iraqi government for reshipment to the Kurds. The Kurds then asked everyone else for help and Iran responded, supplying arms, advisors, and troops to the Kurds.

    Real smart diplomacy.

    Why are we even talking to these Jihadists? We should have destroyed their entire energy industry long ago and put the entire country on foot and in the dark, just like the 7th century they want to return too so much. We should let the Sunni Jihadists focus all their resources killing the Shiite Jihadists, and vice versa. Everyone in the west would be much safer if they have no resources left for murdering innocent men, women, and children in the west. Obama continues to show what an idiot he is by getting involved, and giving the Jihadists a unifying target in the American Infidels from the Great Satan. I don’t think Obama even knows the definition of the word “Strategy”.

    Obama’s desperation to give the store to Iran is so pathetic, that the Mullahs must be rolling on the floor laughing at him.

    You can’t seriously believe Doofus will have any more success with Iran than he has had for the last 5+ years!!!! Nobody could be that gullible
