Obama Will Stop The Extermination Of Chris– The Yazidi

From a surprisingly tight-lipped Reuters:

Obama orders targeted air strikes, humanitarian aid drops in Iraq

By Matt Spetalnick | August 7, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Thursday he had authorized "targeted" U.S. airstrikes against Islamic State fighters in northern Iraq and military airdrops of humanitarian supplies to besieged religious minorities there to prevent a "potential act of genocide." …

As we have previously noted, Iraq has been begging for US air strikes against ISIS for at least a year. What changed Obama’s mind? Are the polls so bad for him now he sees going to War In Iraq as his best PR move?

Obama took action amid international fears of a humanitarian catastrophe engulfing tens of thousands of members of Iraq’s minority Yazidi sect driven out of their homes and stranded on Sinjar mountain under threat from rampaging militants of Islamic State, an al Qaeda splinter group. Many Iraqi Christians have also fled for their lives.

"We can act carefully and responsibly to prevent a potential act of genocide," Obama told reporters at the White House. "I’ve therefore authorized targeted airstrikes if necessary."

ISIS has been exterminating Christians for how many months now? But now that they are going after the Yazidis (which is a Kurdish sect related to Zoroastrians), that’s a different story. Obama must act now!

Here is a little more on Mr. Obama’s latest ‘gutsy call,’ via Breitbart:

President Obama Announces Air Strikes in Iraq: ‘Today America Is Coming to Help’

By Charlie Spiering | 7 Aug 2014

President Obama announced late Thursday night that he authorized air strikes to assist the Iraqi people in their fight against terrorist forces of the Islamic State. He also announced aid to the Yazidi people in Iraq who are trapped and starving on Mount Sinjar.

He explained that the United States has a “mandate” to act in order to “prevent an act of genocide,” although he cautioned that America would “act carefully and responsibly.”

And acting carefully and responsibly means not helping the Christians. That would be too much of an affront to The Prophet.

“Today America is coming to help,” he said…

How dramatic. By the way, when will America come to help America? Starting at our southern border.

Obama closed his statement with an examination of America’s responsibility to act in the world to help fight terrorism.

Since when? Obama usually won’t even use the word ‘terrorism.’ Anyway, we thought the war on terrorism was long over.

“My fellow Americans, the world is confronted by many challenges, and while America has never been able to right every wrong, America has made the world a more secure and prosperous place,” he said.

Wow. It must have hurt for him to have to finally admit this. (Not that he believes it for a second.)

Obama also reminded American citizens of his duty to act. “When the lives of American citizens are at risk we will take action. That’s my responsibility as Commander-in-Chief, and when many thousands of innocent civilians are in danger of being wiped out and we have the capacity to do something about it, we will take action," he said. "That is our responsibility as Americans. It’s a hallmark of American leadership."

It’s a wonder he doesn’t choke on the word ‘leadership.’ But, once again, where was Obama while the Christians were being wiped out. And not only by ISIS in Iraq.

    Obama doesn’t know (bad word) about our Military or about armed conflict. He was raised by idiots for a bathhouse mentality, suckled by fake publishers and loved his marijuana.

    His gravitas is limited to pink satin underthings
