    you term this war dicknbush began as Obama's war
    which causes me to believe you have painted Obama in a no-win situation
    but prove me wrong
    explain what Obama should have done differently
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    To explain, you have to think, have a thought. Much easier to link sources you haven't read or fully understood.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

Anyone involved with the Persian Gulf war and the effects of a decade of Sanctions should have known Iraq was of no threat to us or its neighbors.



    And yet every elected democrat and world intel agency believed Iraq under Saddam was in fact a threat and the only reason you have the ability to lob accurate tosses from your armchair is because Bush actually acted instead of passing yet another 17 UN resolutions 'demanding' compliance. We know what we know ONLY because Bush acted. Fact...reality...deal with it.

    False, factually inaccurate. few believed Saddam was the threat Bush claimed him to be. Even fewer believed he had active programs.

    really
    as the incoming commander-in-chief, he did not have to deal with the afghanistan war left to him by dicknbush
    one can only imagine the reich wing comments had he not stepped up to the plate and deal with that situation as president
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Re: US troops coming home? Obama to say on Wednesday

    cfr, council on foreign relations, august, 2009:

    During the presidential campaign, Obama emphasized that the war in Iraq was the wrong one; it was the effort in Afghanistan, al Qaeda's base, that was the right war. "Only a comprehensive strategy that prioritizes Afghanistan and the fight against al Qaeda will succeed," Obama said, "and that's the change I'll bring to the White House." The notion that Afghanistan was the epicenter of global terrorism and would prove to be an enduring source of danger to the United States unless the Taliban were subdued became a recurring theme.
