Turns out there is a US Consulate in Erbil.
Self-Absorbed President ?
@#401 and the G-men working there are called Gerbils?
More cover up news.
We’re bombing Iraq, shadowblade. Will you begin a new tally for this administration or simply add on to Bush’s tab?
I only mention it, shadowblade, because you may not follow the Pentagon’s Twitter feed:
Daily Mail highlights brutal African dictators at White House event
The White House hosted the largest-ever gathering of African leaders in the United States, with more than 50 countries represented.
The red carpet was rolled out for Equatorial Guinea’s Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who shot or jailed virtually all his political opponents, Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh, who threatened to ‘cut off the head’ of any homosexuals in the country and for Cameroon’s Paul Biya, who made a list of the world’s 20 worst living dictators.
Many of the leaders were later photographed in the White House, posing for individual portraits with President Obama and the First Lady.
Good one – shadow needs to separate his Bush count from his Obama count. Just because the Iraq deaths started under Bush doesn’t mean he attribute every death since then to Bush.
C’mon, shadow….let’s see something besides the MSNBC count.
Birchers FAIL again.
“NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Lamar Alexander became the latest U.S. senator to fend off a tea party challenge in a primary race Thursday, defeating a state lawmaker who had used a familiar tactic in trying to cast him as an out of touch insider.
Meanwhile, scandal-plagued U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais’ bid to hang onto his seat was too close to call. Unofficial returns with all precincts reporting showed him with a lead of only 33 votes over state Sen. Jim Tracy, who had raised far more money. A recount was possible.
Alexander’s win dealt another blow to national tea party momentum after the stunning primary win over Republican Rep. Eric Cantor in Virginia in June………………….”
OK Magic 8 Ball….. same question as everyday … “Should I bomb the bad guys today?”
hmm…. ALL SIGNS POINT TO YES!
Hey Joe, check it out! We got permission!
Dennis at #403….
ISIS released a video ( presumably between beheading of infidels) . They vow that the black flag of ISIS will fly above the White House. I say we cancel their visas and keep them out of the United States of America.
This is all confusing to me. I thought ISIS was the good guys trying to kill Syrians and Iranians and was cheering them on, but it turns out they want to kill about everyone so I guess we should not root for them
These people ,with their schizophrenic religion ,will kill each other forever.
Isis is doing the dirty work the US they will thin out the herd

You are KNOW interested in US military deaths in Iraq? How convenient of you.
We lost 4000+ Americans and spent more than $1 Trillion, only to see Iraq fall to Islamic extremists. Good thing we have Obama to clean up Bush’s mistakes.
Iraq- the rebooblican gift that keeps on giving. Thank you dubya, and the rest of your redneck hacks that pollute this column.
Any idea who is going to clean up the mess the teleprompter lecturer left in Libya. Country is falling apart, terrorists are taking over. Countries are closing Embassies and evacuating their citizens.
‘Royal Navy evacuates Britons from Libya amid fierce fighting’
‘Libya: military plane brought down and fuel depot set on fire as violence escalates’
‘Gaddafi has gone but Libya is more dangerous than ever, thanks to the west’
MSNBC is trying single handedly to shame other countries into helping Obama, by talking at them. Even Garamendi was on parroting democrat talking points.
Doubt if any country will step up, after watching his actions in Syria, his administrations anti Israel comments, few if any still trust Obama.

“Fighting in Benghazi and Tripoli has forced the displacement of hundreds of family and is having “grave humanitarian consequences” the Libyan Red Crescent (LRC) has said.
The humanitarian organisation, one of the few still operating on the ground in the country, said that the ongoing fighting, which has killed 214 and left 900 wounded, could cause the total collapse of the health system.
At least two million people are at risk of acute food shortages as intense fighting blocks the provision of stocks and supplies which are located in areas affected by the conflict. Similarly, the movement of medical supplies is being obstructed by the clashes.
“If the crisis continues longer, the situation will become a big burden on us,” Omar Ajaudah, Secretary General of LRC, said. “We ask for support to strengthen our response to the humanitarian needs of the displaced. Despite these challenges, we are carrying on with our efforts,” he added.
In Benghazi this week, Red Crescent teams brought 57 bodies to Benghazi Medical Centre. In cooperation with the city authorities, it has been helping ready schools to shelter hundreds of displaced families. The needs of these families, its said, are acute with food and water of greatest concern. In Tripoli more than 700 displaced families are being supported by LRC.”
Cut n RUN
#414 Know, not really.
I was just wondering if you’d start a new tally for Obama, but I guess I have your answer to that already, thanks.
Rick, you’re a racist.
Rednecks are not a race, they are a disability condition that must be granted the same civil rights and cultural respect required by US Civil Rights Law.
Rednecks, LGBT, Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics are all the same in this country.
“We lost 4000+ Americans and spent more than $1 Trillion”
Sing your song, girl!
Tell us how you really feel, Rick!
I always look forward to your intelligent, well-reasoned comments.

It’s too much for you to care about our military.
I don’t recall the US sacrificing 4000+ American lives in Libya, and spent more than $1 Trillion. When did this happen?
Such a fixation …..
Obama still has over 2 years left, imagine what terrorists will do when they get Nukes. Indecision (leading from behind), weakness and wimps invite aggression.
Deterrence, is, making the price of aggression too great to risk.
I think we’re going to have to cut Dennis’ retirement to pay for those bombs we’re dropping in Iraq.
Pay as you go!
Keep hoping…just like you were hoping he would destroy the economy.
BTW…Pakistan has nukes, supported the Taliban, and harbored bin Laden…not that Bush cared.
“Sing your song, girl!”
Yeah…we know you don’t care about our military.
#424 It’s too much for you to care about their civilians.
gazpacho soup doesn’t count.
