http://hotair.com/archives/2014/08/06/isis-sweep-forces-reli...Humanitarian agencies said Tuesday that between 10,000 and 40,000 civilians remain trapped on Mount Sinjar since being driven out of surrounding villages and the town of Sinjar two days earlier. But the mountain that had looked like a refuge is becoming a graveyard for their children.Unable to dig deep into the rocky mountainside, displaced families said they have buried young and elderly victims of the harsh conditions in shallow graves, their bodies covered with stones. Iraqi government planes attempted to airdrop bottled water to the mountain on Monday night but reached few of those marooned.“There are children dying on the mountain, on the roads,” said Marzio Babille, the Iraq representative for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “There is no water, there is no vegetation, they are completely cut off and surrounded by Islamic State. It’s a disaster, a total disaster.”Most of those who fled Sinjar are from the minority Yazidi sect, which melds parts of ancient Zoroastrianism with Christianity and Islam. They are considered by the al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State to be devil worshippers and apostates.-------------------------------------Things are going to get real interesting real fast.
It's a real dilemma for the Dems, especially the vocal liberals. They claim to support social good, human rights, against bullying, and all things good. But when push comes to shove, many blame the U.S. policies for anything bad done to us. They never blame Hamas for anything, and continue to condemn and denounce anything Israel does. No mention from liberals about the money used to fund building of tunnels and the import of weapons, rather than take care of the people. Imagine what liberals would say living under Hama control rather than Israeli control.ISIS, the Islamic State, is the most feared and brutal organization in the world right now. They have swept through vast amounts of territory, killing, torturing, stealing, taking over key cities and oil and gas fields. Their mission is the extermination of those that they don;t agree with. Their end goal is an enormous State controlled with an iron fist. Their barbaric actions make the news, but the liberals don't know if they're allowed to denounce them minute by minute like they did with the Israelis. You've also got the Obama problem with jumping in late on the wrong side, so that's problematic for them as well. It's hard to condemn U.S. policy when your favorite leader is in charge.About the only thing Liberals talk about nowadays is Obamacare, and the fact that it's unpatriotic for a U.S. company to not pay U.S. taxes. There's a message in there somewhere.

From the article: We’ve spent a lot of time intervening in the Gaza war. What has the US done about ISIS, which poses much more of a threat to the US and the West, in a country where our presence might have made a difference? According to former Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Jack Keane, we’re “sitting on our hands” while “the most significant threat to the Middle East” rampages across Iraq.The Obama administration is exceedingly, utterly, stunningly, devastatingly, spectacularly, irrevocably INCOMPETENT.
From the article: We’ve spent a lot of time intervening in the Gaza war.And at that, our intervention in the last few years has been almost entirely devoted to protecting genocidal warmongers with no respect for anyone's human rights from the only government in the region that shows any respect at all for said warmongers' families.
