Krauthammer: “Why In God’s Name Don’t We Resupply The Kurds?”

Krauthammer: “Why In God’s Name Don’t We Resupply The Kurds?”

Krauthammer said Friday on Fox News Special Report that it is "astonishing" to learn that the United States has not supplied the Kurds with weapons to hold back Islamic militants in Iraq.

"They're essentially using javelins and harpoons here," Krauthammer said, "against the ISIS army, which has captured tons of sophisticated American weapons."

Krauthammer pointed to rearming Israel during its war with Egypt in 1973 as an example of how easy it would be to arm the pro-American Kurds.

“It’s not hard stuff to get in, it’s all sitting in our bases in Germany”...“You could send a plane today and it would be there in 18 hours.”

Charles Krauthammer cannot understand why the Obama administration is unwilling to provide arms to Kurds battling ISIS in Iraq: “The Kurds are allies of the U.S. They have a civil society, they’re pro-American, and they fight really hard. But they’re essentially using javelins and harpoons here, and we have not given them anything.”

The White House has claimed that all American arms must go through the Iraqi government, an obligation at which Krauthammer scoffed: “The Iraqi government — that’s Maliki, that Shiite chieftain — has cut off all aid to the Kurdish area [of Iraq] since December of last year.” None of the arms the U.S. has sent through the Iraqi government have arrived, says Krauthammer.

“Why in God’s name we don’t resupply or supply our allies who can hold back ISIS is beyond me.”

Because TURDS don't re-supply Kurds... Obama pulled too many occupiers out of Babylon too soon and ISIS / Al-Qaeda and the Iraniacs moved in...

obama's abandonment of the Kurds, Christians and other minorities in Iraq equals the Dems' abandonment of South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the 70's.
