Something to Know - 15 June

Tom Toles

1.  Obama's favorite critics have gone ape over the release of 5 Gitmo detainees for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.   Where were these same guys when Bush and his administration did the same thing?   Explore this question in this link:

2.  Iraq, after all the loss of American lives and resources, the place is collapsing.  The very units that our military equipped and trained to protect the Iraqi nation have thrown down their uniforms and arms.......and run from duty.  ISIS - the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is on the move.  This rebel faction is said to be worse than the Taliban and wickedly cruel.  In my opinion, we are not in a position to go back in there and risk one more life.  We have done all that can be humanly expected, and there is not reason to think that we have any business in an area where the citizenry cannot help itself.   That being said, a situation is arising that is creating strange bedfellows, and may possibly bring the nations of Iran (IRAN) and the United States closer together.  This is a worthy read:

3.  From the Santa Cruz news bureau, we get this article about how one faction of the fractured GeeOpie is attempting to revive itself:
4.  This news article concerns the deplorable state of affairs that exist in Honduras, and the rest of parts of Central America.  The cruelty to humanity is contributing to the mass migration of people northward, through Mexico, and illegally into the United States.   This condition is exacerbating our already overburdened capabilities.  This piece give you some understanding:

Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.
-- George W. Bush
