SORT BY Relevancy
Good morning. Today, on The Meter we discuss President Obama's decision to once again involve The United States militarily in Iraq. As ISIS continues it's operations in Iraq, many calling it genocide, was Obama forced into this action? Mitt Romney warned in 2012 that the hasty withdraw from Iraq may indeed cause such a scenario. The cease fire between Hamas and Israel has ended as Hamas rockets are flying again and Israeli air strikes are pounding Hamas positions once more. Is Presdient Obama's in the wrong side of this conflict? Back home, we will also cover the lastest on the 2014 midterms. The call in number is 714-214-6214. Please join us at 11:00 AM.

The United States did indeed win the war in Iraq... and then stood back to watch the victory crumble. American forces transformed Iraq from a violent and chaotic land to a stable democracy that only needed minimal America support to defend and recreate itself. But thanks to the Obama administration, this minor support was withheld. As a result, the nation saw peace give way to terror under the ISIS invasion - a disaster that would have easily been prevented by an engaged administration.
Victory Undone: The Defeat of al-Qaeda in Iraq and its Resurrection as ISIS, the new book by CarterAndress, reveals the untold story of how the Iraq War was won and subsequently thrown away. Andress is a world-renowned military contractor whose company, American-Iraqi Solutions Group (AISG), substantially contributed to the defeat of al-Qaeda in Iraq
One of the major news items of the week has been the fall of Mosul and other parts of Iraq to a group of Islamists set on creating a caliphate in the area of Iraq and Syria. Two and a half years after leaving Iraq to their own devices, we're now seeing Iraq wasn't prepared to handle any threats or terrorism on their own. This is not about so much pointing fingers or assigning blame, although there are certainly decisions and actions taken that brought Iraq to this point. Mostly it's about relaying some of what is happening, with a report as well on what's happening to Christians in Mosul and the dangers they face. Also, a little bit more on the border situation down at Texas and Arizona and some thoughts on Eric Cantor's loss. That's today on American Faith Today at 4:30 Eastern and archived afterward.

CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
Those of us on the far side of 50 realize that life is not always as it seems. Government reports are frequently far from honest, the media distorts the truth and even our own perceptions of the world are often incorrect. So, given the history between our two countries, what do you think about the people of Iraq?
Lorna Tychostup, former journalist and photographer, set out to find the truth for herself. She even went so far as to travel to Iraq in 2003—during the lead-up to the war. Since then, her personal quest to understand that population and how they differ from us (or are, in many ways, the same) has led to numerous return trips. Now, Lorna’s photos have been exhibited throughout the country, she’s become a sought-after speaker, earned her Masters’ Degree and became the subject of a documentary film.
You’ll want to be sure to catch Lorna’s fascinating account of independent thinking, personal courage and the need to speak out… just the traits of a woman on the Feisty Side of Fifty!
