We're back in Mess in Potamia

We have troops in Iraq.  They are there to redo what the prior set of troops failed to do, namely, create an Iraqi army that does not flee in the face of a charging camel gnat.  ISIL has perhaps decided to push the bellicosity envelope a tad.  They are attacking near where a few hundred Marines and Iraqi military are based.  What happens if the Iraqi Army flees?  What happens if the Marines get surrounded?  Will Obama act?  What happens if the Marines get killed or captured and beheaded?  Will Congress act?  If Congress acts would they tax us or put it on the Visa card?  It's been messy since 2003, but what did you expect from a game plan dreamed up by a Shrub.

Islamic State tries to attack base where hundreds of U.S. troops are stationed
