Many on both sides of the political aisle have questioned the decision of the Obama administration to send advisors into Iraq and some in the right-wing media are taking their speculation to a new level.
After news broke that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) took over parts of Iraq, all eyes turned to the United States and what action it might take. After a very brief deliberation, President Obama announced up to 300 military advisors will be headed to the region for embassy security. Both war weary liberals and anti-Obama conservatives have given their opinions, but one conservative talking head is speaking loud and clear. During his radio show Thursday, Rush Limbaugh gave a unique prospective on Obama's handling of the situation.
"President Obama said the United States is going to send up to 300 military advisors to Iraq and set up a Joint Operations Center. Even though there is no military solution, we're gonna send 300 military advisors. What are they gonna advise? No, there is no military solution. Obama said there's no military solution. We're sending military advisors. So it must be we're going to teach the Iraqis how to negotiate, how to appease."
Limbaugh continued, claiming that Obama is devoted to Islam that he would split the military aid and give part to terrorists.
"If we're gonna send military advisors in it's gonna be for the Maliki forces, which are the Shi'ites, and yet Obama's not gonna choose one Muslim sect over another. So we have to conclude that he's gonna help the Sunni ISIS forces as much as he's gonna help Maliki...
I mean, Sunni ISIS is having a lot of success in taking over town after town after town, and they're targeting Baghdad. So obviously Obama is calling for Regime change without saying so. If we're gonna send in 300 military advisors and we're not gonna choose sides, does that mean 150 of those military advisors are gonna help ISIS and the other 150 are gonna help Maliki?"
The decision to send troops back into Iraq after finally ending the war is questionable and debatable, but to claim that President Obama will be aiding terrorists is nothing more than right-wing white noise.
