    Iraq is going down fast.
    The US should never have pulled troops out.
    We should have been resolved to be there for decades, like in Germany, Japan, and South Korea.


    The USA should never have gotten involved in Iraq and I don't see any reason why the USA should get in the middle of this mess.

    Let them people solve their own problems.

    We never should have had troops in Iraq. It is a grand disaster and much of the it is due to the United States.

    Prediction: We have not and we will not learn to leave sovereign nations the feck alone. Everyone, again and again, will suffer except the profiteers and the ones of give the orders. It will not stop until each American feels the profound sacrifice inherent in waging war.

This is one reason I am in favor of staying out of Syria. Libya looks like it is also headed into chaos, not to mention Afghanistan. Oh the folly of nation building. Nation building is no more than colonization under local rulers doing your bidding.

    The best thing we could have done was let the Iraqi and Afghani have the form of government they wanted, then perhaps this wouldn't be happening in Iraq and perhaps we wouldn't have turned 8 of the 14 tribe northern alliance against us if we let them go back to tribal rule like they themselves wanted.
    And you have just addressed what went down in Egypt.

    Good morning, bubba.

Choosing which faction to give arms to only prolongs the hostilities, and only makes us more enemies! Sheesh!
    We will not be out of the middle east as long as we have financial interests there.

    And you know this how? Right, you don't. I am personally acquainted with Christian Iraqis who were tortured by Saddam's fetayeen.

    There are somethings in this world beyond the United States ability to control.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    They are fleeing the fighting. The muslims who leave will return if the government becomes a muslim theocracy.

    Did you mean to address Cryptic's post about Christians being tortured in Iraq?
