    Looks like up and leaving wasn't such a great idea.

    Good grief -- everybody knows you aren't supposed to car bomb on an empty stomach!

    Can't undo going there. But, we should have made sure things were going to remain stable, before we left.

    Staying there wasn't a very good idea, either. We should've just declared it a US Territory.

    Well, the Sunni want to get back at the Shia since they aren't competent enough to get rid of Assad in Syria. At Least not without the help of the west. So rather than declaring war on the Shia and vice versa. They will just stick to what works. Killing those innocents that can't fight back.

    Wherein they themselves don't have to worry about fighting in battle mono on mono. That which they fear the most. Having to man up.

    Agreed, but that would have required leadership. Leaders make decisions, losers make excuses. Guess which one is in charge of the US for another three and a half years.

    What I'm saying is, simply occupying the place wasn't a good idea.
