Mass graves – transitory. Military coups – noise. ISIS direct calls for American blood – no problem. Siding with another unelected leader without being sure – new normal foreign policy. Arming kurd fighters – sure why not. Saving a few 100 Yazidi in the name of humanitarianism (oh and the oil sshh) – priceless. We hope President Obama has had a restful morning on his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard as he speaks on the latest political developments in Iraq (which last week he explained were crucial if the army was ever to fight for the ‘nation’ ever again). Just a reminder, the call is ‘audio only’ – listen hard for the calls of ‘fore’ in the background.
President Obama is due to speak at 1645ET (set your alarm accordingly).. and yes he is ‘phoning it in’
