Vladimir Putin’s the Man in the Middle East, and he knows it.

When the United States moved into Iraq in 2003 to overthrow the merciless and brutal regime of Saddam Hussein, we did so to protect the people of Iraq.

From the first time the US sent troops Iraq and Afghanistan, I’ve been contending that it won’t matter what the US does in the region. There has been war in the Middle East for at least 1,000 years between the two sects of Islam and between ethnic groups of people. Shiite Muslims have been fighting …

Just a few months ago, Iran publicly asked the United States for help regarding ISIS. When I first heard this, I couldn’t believe it. Our mortal enemy Iran asking for our help.

The Iraqi Parliament on Sunday named a new president, Fouad Masoum, who refused to name Prime Minister Nouri Kamal al-Maliki to a third term. Maliki responded by saying that the election of Masoum was unconstitutional. That caused Maliki’s own party, the State of Law Party, to withdraw its support from him. Now there are reports that …

Last Thursday, Barack Obama announced that he had authorized airstrikes against the Islamic extremist group known as ISIS in Iraq. Obama said it was a humanitarian act, but never spelled out exactly what that meant.
