    Hmm.., Do ya think maybe there's a screwed up foreign policy. If you think this is bad wait until Obama retreat from Afghanistan. Blood will run like a flood in the cities of Afghanistan. that "Fundamental Transformation" is really working to bring our plus years of this incompetent administration and it has turned American foreign policy and our economy into a shambles. I foresee a scenario similar to that of the last days of Vietnam and overcrowded helicopters taking off from rooftops and landing on aircraft carriers.

    Which is the reason why we could not win in Vietnam. We could not attack certain targets in north veitnam because of the possibility of china retaliating against us.

    If we dont get enough oil from the ME to make a difference? Then leave the ME. Let them fight it out. And if Russia and China wish to get involved over there. Let them. Maybe with some luck they will end up fighting each other.
    Dont we have enough dead, injured, wounded Americans already? Do we need thousands more?
    And by all means let us bury our heads in the sand and pretend that the unpleasant aspects of reality simply don't exist!

    We went to Kuwait to defend the oil producing nation and friend of Bush 1 from Iraq.

    But we went under the BS vail of UN sanctions. Saddam is killing Kurds and such. Well who is at fault for that? We are.
    We told them when we would be leaving giving them time to prepare for what they are doing now. Destabilizing the nation.
    How much did that littel foray in the desert cost us? WAS IT WORTH IT?
    I have asked that a couple times and you just try to back wash my posts saying "its no use debating". A sure sign you lost whatever debate you had.
    Oh, and if you old enough. You may remember that we backed Iraq in the Iran Iraq war.
    The Kurds were being killed and gassed by Saddam. He used Sarin and Mustard gas on them. He also drained the marshes to destroy the Marsh Arabs located there. Bush was also right about the WMD, that Clinton claimed was still there. Even Hillary and Kerry were for it before they were against it. We have proof today that WMD's were shipped to Syria. Assad has been using Sarin on his own people.
    Bush's proposal of withdrawal included keeping boots on the ground in Iraq. Hussein Obama II retreated completely.

    Name one. Just one that we need to sacrifice US lives and millons for in the ME.

    Proof? Where? Because Assad is using the same thing? Thats not proof. Show me pics of the empty shell casings. Show me the dead. Funny we have seen nothing of that in the news.
    As far as Saddam sending war heads off to somewhere else, well gee. What do you think he was doing in the 18 months of run up to the war?

    True. Note also that after years of fruitless negotiations, Nixon mined Haiphong harbor (previously off-limits) over Christmas 1972 and we were able to leave a few months later. South Vietnam, with serious material help from the US, was able to hold its own for a couple of years until a Democrat congress cut off funding. Then we were treated to the embarrassing photos of the Saigon embassy.
