-- The little. And welcome to the show. It is me Bob Mitchell the real Robert Mitchell filling -- Boris cute tonight. Got a bunch of good things to. Discuss on the show this week. Lay among the WWL talked table and take the show to midnight. And again I'm gonna do what I did last and Italy these things out and then you can pick and choose what you wanna talk about. And will this take it from there -- spent most of the day. Watching television -- in the news programs and reading about the situation in Iraq and it is. It is an absolute nuts the president said today. But the mounting violence in Iraq should be a wake up call for the Iraqi leaders. Committing the US to help halt the advance of Islamic extremist but saying. That an ultimate resolution must come from Iraq's political leaders. Mr. Obama said that. The US would not be sending troops back and combat in Iraq but -- one national security team to prepare a range of other options. At the same time he added the crisis in Iraq is not primarily a military challenge. He's at any action that we take. Have to be drawn by a serious and sincere effort by Iraq's leaders to set aside differences to promote stability. We can't do it for them in the absence of this type of political effort short term military action won't succeed. Less than on the show. It was interesting because we had one caller. Who phoned him. And pretty much said the same thing. He said the sides have got to once and for all sit down and try to work out a peaceful resolution. I don't know if that can happen out just don't know if these people can get together it's kind of like the Republicans the Democrats on a much higher scale. So the president said that he's going to think about what he's going to do at this point he has not committed to any type of air strikes. John McCain. Says the president has invited the crisis by failing to secure a residual American troop presence in Iraq that America is almost nine year war ended. And -- eleven. So what are the questions we're going to ask you tonight is. What do you think is the main reason for the current prices and Iraq. Do we. Blame it on George Bush and say when we should have never gotten involved. Do we blame along. Barack Obama and say we told our troops out too soon. Horribly go with -- and say it's just their culture and there's very little but we didn't do about it. So. The president said at this point he's not sending troops and but he is trying to decide one way or the other what type of air strike. Do you agree with the president's decision to six or what it's 7866. And -- 90 it's seventy. Because there are many people including John McCain think that we've got to do whatever we -- To help the weak and not all wildest ago and the wildcard here now is now -- ran as saying -- Will be glad to help so we definitely would have definitely don't want that and we know what will -- our Iraq and around ago. So. If it really is a frustrating situation. And a few have been. Watching and following that today then you'd you know you know exactly. What I'm talking about if the president -- changes -- And if the president does say that we want to take didn't do air attacks US jets could be flying over Iraq in less than a day. US air base of -- dozens of American fighters to bombers or well within striking distance overwrought pipelines by drones. Like the global hawk from. Easily fly over Iraq the aircraft or the Euro socialist George HW bush is just a few days away but it's out of that -- Then if you were listing to the news. You have our big 870 pretty judge court opinion poll question former mayor Ray Nagin is now asking the judge for leniency. In his sentencing because. Of the rest on his -- What you have mercy on C ready or not. Cast your vote at WWL dot com isn't really an interesting situation. Because I think it's about two weeks before he scheduled to be sentenced. Basically what he's saying is. It's gonna beat two top -- my family and my daughter is going to grow up with I'll fault because they say could be used to get around twenty years. And some people play and that really makes a ball down to a life sentence. So now obviously and have mercy mercy mercy on me. Mercy or not if they do show mercy. Manuel of people gonna point the finger. And say it's only because he's a politician. And at the if they do show mercy then that that means that any one else was on the same situation. And ask for the same mercy. What do you think. 260 -- -- 866889. Point seven lead and we do have a couple of fun things that like again and to try to hopefully maybe lighten up a little bit. -- Sunday portions Father's Day. Is there a song. Movie or -- event but always remind you something special that you shared with your day. And dads out there who were listing. If money were no object what fantasy gift you wish her kids would give view. This Sunday and did -- did the same way you were raised. And what is or what was your dad's.

John or John McCain John McCain does have that that he -- he does have that attitude coming and. -- Aren't important at. Wal-Mart try to. Let me ask -- -- -- -- getting back to a rock first of all the president says. That they really need together. All all three of the factions there need to get together and try to live in peace. And I think that's I think that's wonderful and and I would love to see that but. From that part of the world do you really think that's possible that they can sit down and work I mean they hate each other. Quite a bit in the pit area to -- bill. They'll pay I -- -- a little -- like the old. -- not it's not like expecting the Democrats and the Republicans the work together in Washington for us right. We're putting -- -- that might.

We're general John John most of bomb everybody John Dunne says the president. Had invited the crisis by failing to secure a residual American troop presence in Iraq. After Americans almost nine year war ended in 2011. But of course the the country. Was yelling at the president bring our troops home and that's exactly what I think America want and that's exactly what he did. For now one week when we get down to our bottom line right now well what do you think is the main reason for the current crisis in Iraq. Do you blame it on George Bush and say we should have never gotten involved that's probably were -- -- and I don't think we should have ever gotten involved I was totally against those two went into a -- Never did find weapons of mass destruction on hold go to my grave believing.

They keep getting caught over and over and over again and yet it it doesn't. It doesn't deter them from continuing to try. Two take advantage of their positions.

In the political arena you know during an election whereas under a microscope. So you know -- Really the first party in order -- go from making full of doubt.
