    Define 'deal with it.' That suggests that both administrations past and current have the power to do something.

    Speaking of which, what on Earth are all the Shia militias in Iraq doing about this? Sitting on their hands?

    You'd think they'd have at least some kind of vested interest in keeping Al Qaeda from gaining a foothold.

    Excellent point.

    Yeah, and seeing as how the Shiites are a majority, one would guess they'd want the current gov't to retain power.
    Either Maliki has managed to piss EVERYONE off, or the ME situation is beyond my comprehension.
    Probably both.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    They might be hoping that the situation will deteriorate to such a point that they can step in and seize power for themselves, possibly with Iran's support and direction. I certainly wouldn't put it past them.

    Either way, however, we could easily be looking at a civil war which will put the conflict in Syria to shame if things continue as they are.

    Talk? Is Obama only talking or is he trying to get us out of Afghanistan? (Which we basically have lost, like Vietnam...thanks Bush.)

    Iraqis yes. Obama no.

    Someone who isn't a raging out of control flaming at the mouth partisan hackjob will realize why the SOFA died.

    A raging out of control flaming at the mouth partisan hackjob will keep blaming Obama for not keeping troops in Iraq without any realization of why the SOFA died.

    Furthermore, the real cause of Iraq's problems is neither Iraq nor America. It is Britain and France who caused this mess.

    Obama said that "Al Qaeda is decimated". Another EPIC FAILURE by the LIAR in CHIEF. Anyone who voted for this failure of a President should ask for their vote back. PERIOD.
