    hows that red line in Syria doing?
    What would the USA do in Iraq, that it hasn't already done? Spend more tax dollars, get some more Americans killed, for what?

    I can see the Malaki leg humpers are out here today.

    In a segment of the CBS news program 60 Minutes, originally broadcast on Dec. 2, 2007, updated June 26 and aired on June 29, 2008, correspondent Scott Pelley asked Canon White: "You were here during Saddam’s reign. And now after. Which was better? Which was worse?"

    "The situation now is clearly worse” than under Saddam, White replied.

    "There’s no comparison between Iraq now and then," he told Pelley. "Things are the most difficult they have ever been for Christians. Probably ever in history. They’ve never known it like now."

    "Wait a minute, Christians have been here for 2,000 years," Pelley remarked.

    "Yes," White said.

    Iraq: Worse for Christians Now Than under Saddam Hussein by Michael Ireland
    And your quote alludes that it wasn't good for Christians under Saddam. I know one who went to visit her grandmother just after we invaded. She got of the plane wearing a cross necklace. They called her a 'filthy Christian', scared the snot out of her, and she got on the next plane back to the states without ever seeing her grandmother. Saying it is 'worse' isn't really saying anything. It wasn't good before. I lived in a major city when that war was going on and we had many immigrants from there.

    They weren't fleeing when the government wasn't a Muslim theocracy.

    You weren't suggesting that only terrorism against our mainland mattered?
    The only relevance I can see in this to our southern border is that occasionally middle easterners will try to jump the border and get us to think they are Mexicans, But middle easterners don't look or sound anything like Mexicans. I don't think our southern border is particularly pertinent to this discussion of what is going on in Iraq. JMNSHO.

    Bush is not in office. That, like the southern border, is a distraction.

    Obama is in office and this is HIS baby. Could we stay on topic.

    Bush is not in office and has not been for 6 years. Obama convinced the US electorate that he had all the answers. This is a new occurrence. Bush is not involved. Can we get on topic here?

    True enough.
    Saddam was an equal opportunity tyrant.
    All his subjects had an equal opportunity to be tortured.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Got it, you make a false premise and argue from there and ALL of Bush's policies/consequences ended Jan 20th, 2009...
