    One we still have troops in Iraq. 2. We have the largest Embassy in the World in Iraq. Costs are down from War level. But costs are still there.....Correct? Then again add Libya. Then the bombing in Yemen, Somolia, and Pakistan. Then he has sent an Additional Fleet to the Persian Gulf. Plus moved one inside Club Med. Where do you think the Two Destroyers are coming from. Plus he still has a ship to cover Egypt. Whom are still Rioting Btw!

    They were not very bright.

    It was a celebrity vote, not one based on experience or demonstrated competence.

    Ignorance for far right wingers will prevail in this conversation, in the sense it will not win the argument, but will remain the loudest rhetoric...

    This is not a rebuttal, nor an invitation to conversation.

    This is simply a statement of mockery of your position.

    There's very little the President can do about this situation, be him (D) or (R) or Bush or Obama or Romney or Reagan, unless of course you're suggesting he order the US military to march through Middle Eastern capitals mowing down protesters by machine gun fire as they go...

    Those who are reasonable among us realize this.

    Those of you who are not, will not.

    This is the way of things.

    Nothing I, nor anyone else, with our words may convince you otherwise, that this is not the sole fault of the President of the United States, a position that requires ignorance beyond comprehension...

    Just as avoidance by those on the left always seeking to stifle debate and discussion all based on concept of what they classify as Far Right-Wingers, used as a means to remain tangential.

    I agree. That said, I thought you had the figure?

    Obama is reacting to the situation in the region. What would you have him do?

    To concentrate on Iraq. If Petraeus and his command had their way Troop levels (surge 2007) would have been maintained for many, many more years. He was advocating the additional tens of years +. Obama drew the force down, and switched the tactic to Afghanistan thus we now have an end date in sight. Anyone who thought Obama would have curtailed any earlier, misunderstood the complexity.

    Yes.....but did you forget everything Petraeus was talking about, was due to what? Who Wanted to stay and do Nation building and work the infrastructure. Let me give you a hint. It was the NEO's Con and LIB. Kerry, Lieberman, Grahman, McCain's Bills.

    Btw way who helped Biden draw up the 3 state Solution for Iraq? As we know Joseph just isn't the brightest bulb in the shed!

    Of course the Taliban and Al-Qaeda also have an end date in sight.

    At one time the idea of war was to win.

    Now it seems that there will be a lot of money spent, many lives lost, and during the killings and the lost treasure an announcement is made to the world when you will pack it in and go home. And all for no particular reason, apart from a fabricated 'timeline'.
