Good News: As Biden Retreats From Middle East, ISIS Reasserts Itself

Biden’s doing a hell of a job on the international front, eh?

Islamic State hits back, aided by power vacuum in Iraq and Syria

Joe Biden Ice Cream AfghanistanYousif Ibrahim no longer travels by night along the roads around his hometown of Jalawla in northeastern Iraq. He fears getting caught up in attacks by Islamic State.

“The police and army don’t come into our area much anymore. If they do, they get shot at by militants,” said the 25-year-old, who sells fish for a living in a nearby market.

Nearly three years after the group lost its final enclave, Islamic State fighters are re-emerging as a deadly threat, aided by the lack of central control in many areas, according to a dozen security officials, local leaders and residents in northern Iraq.

Islamic State is far from the formidable force it once was, but militant cells often operating independently have survived across a swathe of northern Iraq and northeastern Syria, and in recent months they have launched increasingly brazen attacks.

“Daesh (Islamic State) isn’t as powerful as it was in 2014,” said Jabar Yawar, a senior official in the Peshmerga forces of Iraq’s northern autonomous Kurdistan region.

“Its resources are limited and there’s no strong joint leadership,” he told Reuters in the city of Sulaimaniya. “But as long as political disputes aren’t solved, Daesh will come back.”

ISIS started during Obama’s time. Who was the Vice President then? They quickly went from the “JV team” to a dangerous and ultra violent Islamic group post Libyan adventure. President Trump helped wipe them out. But, Joe is incompetent, and has re-opened the door for them, especially as he kowtows to Iran and retreats from the Middle East

Officials and residents in northern Iraq and eastern Syria lay much of the blame on rivalries between armed groups. When Iraqi, Syrian, Iranian and U.S.-led forces declared Islamic State beaten, they faced off against each other across the territory it had ruled.

Now Iran-backed militias attack U.S. forces. Turkish forces bomb Kurdish separatist militants. A territorial dispute rumbles on between Baghdad and Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region.

On one hand, do we really want to keep protecting the Middle East, expending American lives and money? On the other, we’ve seen what happens when the ME turns into a hell hole of Islamist extremism. Oh, and then this

Biden’s letting China in.

    I am OK with small groups of ISIS still blundering around in Iraq/Syria with no help from the USA.

    For the record, that isn’t what is happening. The USA is very much still involved in Iraq and Syria with about 5000 troops in that area. I would prefer that number be zero. The Iraqis have plenty of Iraqi people to fight ISIS and the Syrians have plenty of Syrian -Kurd to do it there.

    This is the equivalent of small groups of Nazis left over in Germany harassing occupation forces and small groups of Democratic party Klansmen lynching black men from 1865 to the present. It’s bad if it happens to you, but not something that needs the USA to go to war over.

    I am also OK with Iraq deciding for itself how much internal security they need and where they should use it. That’s what victory looks like.

    Teach will no doubt volunteer for duty in Syria! No? He wants others to fight for his freedoms! But he’ll cheer them on.

    Earlier, trumpists were boasting about trump pulling troops out of the middle east. Now you want more young Americans to die for your political agenda.

    Dowd: “Teach will no doubt volunteer for duty in Syria! No? He wants others to fight for his freedoms! But he’ll cheer them on.”

    Are you under the delusion when America enters a conflict every single citizen must enter the theater of war? When have you set foot on a battlefield? And since when is supporting our men by cheering them on a bad thing? I guess to you since you seem to always root for America’s enemy.

    Dowd: “Earlier, trumpists were boasting about trump pulling troops out of the middle east. Now you want more young Americans to die for your political agenda.”

    Still stuck on Trump, eh dick breath? We have no idea of whom you s[peak since we have no desire to fight anywhere except for our own people/interests. You have “Trumpists” confused with leftists and neocons.

    Let’s go Brandon, gotta fill those body bags so America is in another “crisis” an election’s coming up.

      Since you brought it up:
      Rimjob claimed to have “signed up” with the US Army in 1971 after bitching about Trump not serving.
      When questioned about his MOS and other basic questions a veteran would know without hesitation he shied away from his “claim” knowing that he was caught ln a lie.
      Now he claims he never meant he actually “served”.
      That’s when everyone here realized what an incredible cowardly liar he is and why he can never be trusted about anything he writes.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The sniveling coward, Suckingpuppies keeps repeating his cowardly lies. Did the pussy suckingpuppies ever sign up? LOL.

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          Vietnam? Holy shit! How old are you Dowd? My father’s 72 and he served in Vietnam. Why, you’re just an old loud-mouthed weasel.

          Have you ever thought of starting your own blog? I’m sure you would be as forgiving to your conservative, white, Christian bloggers as Teach is to you, right?

          Anyway, screw you in your cold blue city. It’s 81 degrees here and I’m taking the boat out for a spin. Run sweet Lily to Catches for a bite and a cocktail.

          Let’s go Brandon, what’s the Crisis Du Jour?

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Notice how Rimjob doesn’t actually deny what he did but instead flies into another spittle flecked name-calling rage when confronted with his proven lies.

            What an immature little child!
            Oh, BTW that’s another little story about Rimjob.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Notice how suckingpuppies doesn’t deny that he fellates dogs? Or that he lives in the only state where bestiality is not illegal. Coincidence? We think not.

          Ask him about his record.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            …an incredible cowardly liar he is and why he can never be trusted about anything he writes.

            It’s Pavlovian it is.
            Rimjob can’t help himself.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Suckingpuppies doesn’t even deny it.

            Ask him about his record.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      Teach is advocating a larger presence in the Middle East unless he’s just lying.

      Isn’t it hypocritical of him to support every foreign adventure but not serve? He even whines about taxes and denigrates our current warriors. So yeah, fukk off, Jasmine.

      Are you saying you vehemently disagree with Teach on his wanting to go after ISIS again?

      Teach can’t have it both ways. He can’t whine about a step-up in ISIS and also claim America First! NO MORE warriors overseas!

      Dickbreath Brenda… you do not have to constantly “service” Teach’s member… it’s ok to disagree directly.

      Your Savior trump is still a threat to America. When he leaves we’ll shut up.

    • Hairy says:

      Perhaps you have forgotten that IISIS was born in the complete mess of Iraq
      Perhaps you have forgotten that Bush was the one that signed the SOFA which only allowed US troops to remain inside bases
      Perhaps you have forgotten that it was the Iranisn QODS fighters that defeated ISIS which had been funded by their Shia coreligionist Saudis
      Perhaps you have forgotten that invading and occupying Zoran was exactly whst binLaden had hoped we would do..
      And yeah I also think that you gotta walk the walk ( just as Teach himself says about people who want to slow climate change) you want to e,courage others to join in a stupid war? Go yourself

      • david7134 says:

        Bush had two and only two talents, he was not gore or Kerry. Otherwise he was an absolute liberal dumbass.

        Then you bring up ISIS. That was an organization built up and funded by Obama and McCain. I don’t forget things, I just pay attention, you don’t.

        War is brought about by weal leadership. We don’t have a leader.
