President Barack Obama today decisively silenced speculation by America's generals that US ground troops could return to Iraq in a rare example of the White House publicly overruling the military.A day after US generals suggested that American troops may be needed to liberate jihadist-occupied cities in Iraq, Mr Obama promised soldiers: "I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq."His emphatic statement at a Florida military base highlights the tensions between a president determined to avoid American casualties and commanders sceptical that Isil can be defeated with air power alone.Mr Obama was forced to repeat his pledge of "no boots on the ground" after General Martin Dempsey told a Senate hearing there may be situations where Iraqi forces need American advisers during combat.The suggestion angered and alarmed Mr Obama's liberal supporters and prompted the White House to hastily rule out the possibility of Americans on the front line.
Yeah, because heaven forbid he make a decision that would make his base angry. Doesn't matter if it's the right thing to do for America...not that he'd know the right thing to do if it boxed his big ears. I really can't stand liberals. I mean *really*.
***Lawyers Guild seeks to indict Obama...this is a *liberal* group. Now, before you get all excited, read what they believe is "aiding and abetting genocide:"
The National Lawyers Guild — a hard-left assortment of radical lawyers and “legal workers” — is seeking to have President Obama, Secretary of Defense Hagel, and members of Congress indicted by the International Criminal Court for “aiding and abetting” genocide, crimes against humanity, and other war crimes.Among the bases for these extraordinarily serious accusations, is that “the United States Congress overwhelmingly passed, and President Obama signed, an appropriation of $225 million for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system” — a purely defensive shield that destroys missiles heading for Israeli population centers.Yes, you read that correctly. According to these irresponsible bigots, it is genocide to help the nation state of the Jewish people protect its Jewish and Arab citizens against thousands of rockets being fired at its cities, towns, and airport.
