A 275 member force to guard the American Embassy in Iraq? Are you kidding me? Is that the best strategy this administration can come up with? Will we be supplying our troops with targets to put on their uniforms as well?
Will someone please remind the president and his advisers of the Iranian Hostage Crisis during President Jimmy Carter's term? Of all the possible options available, like just evacuating our embassy of personnel after destroying all records and computers or using unmanned drones to disperse the combatants, sending in more troops is Obama's solution?
Let the Iraqis duke it out on their own. As a tribal nation, they are not content unless they are warring on each other, and the more brutal and savage the better it would seem. Enough with sacrificing American lives and resources.
