The Lyrics

ISIS moves forward as Nouri Al-Maliki begs for US intervention which Obama doesn't want to give to a Shia leader that has completely failed to bring democracy to Iraq and who has distanced himself from the Kurds, Sunnis, and other groups in Iraq. By refusing US military agreements in the past this has caused a slow response by the White House. Obama wants the praise of withdrawing the troops from Iraq but as REPs always suspected the poor Iraqi military is no match for armed insurgents and now they watch as the Iraqi military falls to pieces w/o US airpower to back them. As Obama delays action under DEM opposition, ISIS gains more ground and may threaten Baghdad itself. Iran also politically trumps Obama by offering to help in a joint mission to protect Shias!!! Obama appears f*cked Left and Right. A carrier is on its way and so far limited drone Intel w/o eyes on the ground... makes the US look stupid. ISIS is more of a threat to US security now than Al Qaida in practical terms b/c it is consuming strategic territory that will be used to plot against the US in the region and to our borders.

He's got firepower
He's got firepower... on the way

Iraqi forces fall back, ISIS attacks
Flag is black, insurgents love that
Iraq's in trouble on many levels
Sectarian upheavals
So in Baghdad they tremble
Radicals fight day and night all the time
With a fervor and purpose that is Divine
Muslim maniacs winning the game
Nouri Al-Maliki knows no shame:

“Help US, Sunnis on the way!!!”

REPs moan oh, REPs moan yeah, day-by-day
REPs moan oh, they moan like McCain!
Fightin's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady

“Obama get those fighters ready!!!”

He's got firepower
So why such a slow start?
He sits backs, waits, as Iraq's torn apart
Drones? Yeah, well that's a start
But no Intel on the ground and that's not smart
He's got firepower
With a carrier

He's got firepower
So why such a slow start?
He sits backs, waits, as Iraq's torn apart
Drones? Yeah, well that's a start
But no Intel on the ground and that's not smart
He's got firepower
With a carrier

It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady
It's goin' it's goin' it's goin' slow but steady

Assets we possess, but provide much less
OIF was a terrible test and war mess
Troops, brought 'em home with withdrawin'
Now with renewed threat is stallin'
Insurgents snapped back
Shias need US to now save them
No time to think, REPs want Pres to act
Military attack and DEMs don't want that

He's got firepower
So why such a slow start?
He sits backs, waits, as Iraq's torn apart
Drones? Yeah, well that's a start
But no Intel on the ground and that's not smart
He's got firepower
With a carrier

He's got firepower
So why such a slow start?
He sits backs, waits, as Iraq's torn apart
Drones? Yeah, well that's a start
But no Intel on the ground and that's not smart
He's got firepower
With a carrier

F/A-18 thunder....

Better do something to avoid another blunder
Iran-Iraq-Syria connection gettin' stronger!!!

He's got firepower
With a carrier
A note to the uninformed: ISIS is now forming their own Special Forces and is being supplied well through various sources with armor, small arms, AA guns, and may aquire WMDs in the future from Syria or Iran. Anyone that thinks ISIS is trivial is ignorant IMO.
