U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is sounding the alarm about new American military action in Iraq.
Durbin says he understands why President Obama launched air strikes against Islamic extremists… especially because some Americans in the Iraqi city of Irbil are in danger from the jihadist insurgents.
But Durbin says Iraqis must stand up on their own against the extremists, and can’t rely on U.S. military force.
Durbin is adamantly opposed to any new use of American ground forces to put down the rebellion in Iraq.
