Airstrikes authorized in Iraq

Finally the worthless hang wringing going on  in the White House has stop and they have authorized airstrikes to keep ISIS out of the northern city of Erbil and emergency air drop missions to Northern Iraq.
About time, the Kurd's have always been our allies and have taken a beating in recent days, In addition the cites and area under threat by these fundamentalist Islamic hordes is the traditional Christian part of Iraq.

The ISIS fanatics are of course Sunni's and I've heard all the arguments of not wanting to take sides as the current government is a Shiite minority. But enough is enough, we broke it and need to fix it.

What I'd like to know is who the money is behind the ISIS fundamentalist, here's looking at you House of Saud. The only reason I think this announcement came down  is the Saudi Royal family doesn't like what it see's and knows if this spreads south their own position could be in jeopardy.

I've said for years if they didn't have oil no one would give two cents for what goes on in this part of the world. But the whole damn planet needs energy to make our economies work so right now we are stuck.
Hopefully in the next few days we can do enough to halt the advance and do something to remedy this growing refugee problem.

What really sad is when this started and ISIS was coming down the road in columns south toward Baghdad we could have wiped them out and destroyed most of their equipment. This whole situation is another example of a completely  failed foreign policy as practiced by the current administration. Like it  or not without a strong and resolute America the world descends into chaos rather fast. This is what happens when the sheeple believe the marketing of Hope and Change.
