    Clearly. But I think we have been trying to look after our interests in the middle east. We still have interests there, and running countries is not one of them.

    I did somewhere. My quotes got messed up because after I multi quoted the multi quote feature didn't cut off. I had to go back and manually un check it. There may be some problems with my the quotes in my last few posts.

    that does not absolve the previous administration of destabilizing the country due to negligence and ill-conceived plans.

    The government is NOT a muslim theocracy. It will be when the insurgents prevail and the muslim brotherhood takes over like it did in Egypt. And yes, many did flee Saddam's Iraq. I became acquainted with several of them in TN.

    No ones asking for anyone to be absolved, we're talking about current events not historic events. And when Biden takes credit for Iraq's successes in 2010 and in 2014 it turns to **** like it is now, and the military says this is what will happen in Afghanistan after we leave too, perhaps the current administration doesn't get absolved either due to ill concieved credit and bad policy.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Obama has been in office for 6 years. He is the one responsible for the last 6 years. I'm so damned tired of hearing 'Bush this and Bush that'. The dumbutts in this country elected Obama, and this is HIS mess.

    The ISIS is not affiliated with the muslim brotherhood.

    and by the by, the military overthrew the muslim brotherhood government.

    Yes it does because the 'previous administration' is not in a position to make any changes NOW. Obama has been in office for 6 years. What is going on now is due to OBAMA'S policies. This is his baby. And it's his to fix.

    Yes, because the US is so open to Muslims

    "In modern times, under Saddam, Christians were treated much the same as Muslims; Saddam's right hand man, Tariq Aziz, was Christian, Pelley said.

    "Before the war," said Pelley,"it's estimated there were about a million Christians in Iraq. They were a small minority, but free to worship, free to build churches, and free to speak the ancient language of Jesus, Aramaic. But, after the invasion, Muslim militants launched a war on each other and the cross."
