Obama only wanted to score politcal points to win elections for OBAMA,,,by anouncing our troops leaving

Moderator's Warning: Folks, enough with the baiting and flaming. Get on topic and cease the trolling
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
We'll have no choice but to go back in with troops. Air raids alone won't help the situation, because the al-Maliki gov't will come under pressure again from the Sunni majority. And the US can't allow that whole region to come under terrorist, Syrian and Iranian control.
Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
We should have worked out a deal that Maliki liked or one that we liked?
I heard many Obama detractors state that the withdrawal had been brokered by the previous administration.Obama only wanted to score politcal points to win elections for OBAMA,,,by anouncing our troops leaving
Therefore, the prez deserved no credit.
Now, when the long-predicted chaos unfolds, Obama's to blame?
All this spinning is making me dizzy.
Yeah, the smart thing to do is keep our soldiers stationed between warring factions.and you whats smart? its smart to announce to the enemy the time your going to leave.. Obama is a quite the genius..
Sort of a buffer zone, eh?
That way, we can sacrifice more Americans for the false hope of Middle-Eastern democracy.
No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
Hooking up with the Northern Alliance, an alliance of 14 different tribes fighting against the Taliban for control of Afghanistan was ideal. This enabled us with but a few SF and paramilitary on the ground to let the Northern Alliance do all the ground fighting and for us to provide air power. It worked magnificently. The Northern Alliance drove the Taliban with AQ and UBL along with them pretty much out of Afghanistan. No more safe haven, sanctuary or training grounds no more. But they failed to capture UBL.
I would say that is pretty much mission accomplished, except for one thing, no UBL. So we sent in 100,000 troops and began this so called nation building thing. From this point on, was it justified, I donít know. Iraq is another story, I really have a problem with pre-emptive wars.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
