Only Obama can save Iraq

Only a new deployment of US troops in Iraq can stop the Islamists' advance, the liberal daily Jutarnji List is convinced: "In Iraq there is only one solution: the return of American troops. Only in this way can Isil's presence on the ground be thwarted and a form of civil society re-established. Barak Obama started his first term as president with the promise that he would withdraw the American army from Iraq, and that's what he's done. It is increasingly likely that he will end his second term by once more sending troops there. This time at the behest of the Iraqi government and all Iraqis who don't want their country to endure a century of religious war."
