A RADICAL plan by Al-Qaeda to take over the Sunni heartland of Iraq and turn it into a militant Islamic state once American troops have withdrawn is causing alarm among US intelligence officials.

A power struggle has emerged between the self-styled Islamic State of Iraq, an organisation with ambitions to become a state which has been set up by Al-Qaeda, and more moderate Sunni groups.

source: ... This increased fear of Al Qaeda in Iraq will happen in western media regardless of the actual veracity of the threat.  They will feed on each other as you need a believable enemy to sustain a war.
... same dynamics goes for the fear of war.  Right now you substitute the USA for the words Al Queda in your argument & you get the Al Queda talking points!  Nice going!

Maybe Obama threw it away as he did Afganistan & soon the rest of the Middle East.... & then the US.

or maybe he just didn't perpetuate a ridiculous zero sum game .... er, you yourself seem to be quite aware of when to just walk away and say enough is enough.   Me i think Obama did just exactly what i elected him to do ... er, just exactly according to my own ethics ... only on an International scale.

Yeah... I'm going to hold you to that when the Extremist Murderous ISIS  start other 9-11s & atrocities in the United States perhaps even in your neighborhood & ruin your business & the Internet (no other opinions allowed except radical Islam) & take the World back to the 7th century.




OMG ... FEAR AND SUFFERING

Also, it is a strange action that you promise to take ... just how do you propose to actually "hold" me to that emotion ?

“Given the gravity of the situation, I would anticipate timely decisions from the president,” Kerry told reporters after an international conference in London. “This needs to be a wake-up call for all of Iraq’s political leaders,” he said, adding: “I am confident that the United States will move rapidly and effectively.”
... hopefully Kerry is not going to fuck this up.
