    Yes only Demorats have those pesky demographics that always vote for them.
    Too bad they don't always vote, as in disaster years 1994 and 2010.
    Neither party is doomed for different incompetent reasons.

    Now for the thread topic, do you support GOP warhawks wanting another round of Iraq ?

    You claimed the mess was cleaned up. That is obviously false. Rather than look at facts, you just assume because a Republican was in office that Iraq turned into the land of milk and honey despite on Inauguration day 2009, blast shields and security check points were all over Iraq. The change of Presidency did not matter. Iraq was not cleaned up. Nor was it ever. The pull out date had nothing to do with the lack of security. If your asinine claim was correct, we would have seen the bombings stop years before the pullout. You are, of course, wrong as you always are.

    As I stated before, this is what happens when you give the bad guys a heads up that you're breaking camp.
    It's amazing how much you hate the 4,000+ men and women who died in Iraq. You dishonor their memories with your terribad claims. Just more proof that extremist Republicans don't give a **** about the lives of our men and women in uniform.

    What does ANY of that mean? Oh right, Wallace got 12% of the votes, mainly in the Southern (CONservatives) states

    Way to conflate CONservatives with GOP though, like your Sharpton link

    What better way for Russia's ol' buddy Iran to make a power grab? Iran is already sending Revolutionary Gaurd units into Iraq.

    NO,

    Did Reagan end the Cold War? Immediately after the Berlin Wall fell, a USA Today survey found that only 14% of respondents believed that. Historians mostly credit forty years of “Containment” by eight U.S. presidents. As Tony Judt’s Postwar concluded: “…Washington did not ‘bring down’ Communism – Communism imploded of its own accord.”

    All they have is their abundance of "Obama" cards, as Cantor whined on about yesterday in resigning as Majority Leader.

    The insurgency was defeated by American forces. If American forces were still there, none of this would be happening. Obama pissed on the grave of every serviceman that died in Iraq, when he gave the whole show away.

    I know, those pesky details like CONservatives ALWAYS on the wrong side of history...Invasion of Iraq, for example, while ONLY 60% of Dems voted against Bush's war of choice, Bet 98% of the progressive caucus did
