    Didn't they abandon themselves? Take off there uniforms and run? But them again, this was the problem with invading in the first place. The hubris to think we could remake a country the way we wanted.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Whether or not you approved of the war in Iraq the fact is there was a war in Iraq and it was America and their Coalition members who did the invading. Now over 4,000 Americans are dead and many more seriously injured and the present administration will unto all the previous good. Of course this do-nothing policy will be to the detriment of America and world peace for years to come. It seems Obama really is on the side of Al Qaeda.

    You should spend less time guessing and more time educating yourself.

    Previous good--are you really saying that 4,500 dead soldiers is previous good--100,000 Iraqis dead--
    tens of thousands of Americans injured in some way-- a huge new pressure on the VA--
    and opening the Shiite/Sunni wound taking us back to 700 A.D.--I don't call that pretty good at all

    Will ISIS be using American equipment laid down by the current Iraqis today?
    That the GOP warhawks want to throw away more American treasure and lives on ?

    Absolutely. It's just funny that you described the poster who thanked you for saying he should be ignored.

    FYI, I see our exchange is playing out as it always does. You make an asinine point. I refute it. I offering you a challenge. You run away.

    That's funny.

    It's embarrassing just how unable you are to mount even a half baked argument.

    But, I'll give you one last chance to redeem yourself: show us where I said everything was "ok in 2008".
    You blamed Obama for Iraq for being in the situation that is now. You refused to blame Bush for anything wrong in Iraq. Between 2001-2011 Iraq was still a **** storm regardless of person in charge, yet you, as per your MO, refuse to lay any blame on the lack of planning on the Adminstration who made the case for war. Furthermore, you outright refuse to address my points about how in 2008 prior to the election, Iraq was still seeing daily bombings and blast shields and security checks were everywhere. You made the asinine post that Obama blew it AFTER we fixed Iraq despite the obvious fact that Iraq was never fixed in the first place. You also claimed that the insurgency was defeated by American forces when all we did was suppress it, largely with the help of Sunni local forces who did much of the COIN for us.

    You said this:

    You simply do not like being completely and utterly destroyed in this debate and having every argument you could use preemptively refuted.

    We cleaned up the mess? If we did that...why did you run away from every example I cited that showed it was not on the day before the inauguration of President Obama?

    When you can't, feel free to apologize for insulting me.
    Why? You were completely destroyed here and shown to be a giant partisan hack who doesn't give a crap about the lives of the soldiers in uniform.

    Neither you or Grant are capable of winning an argument against me. Hence why you both resort to snipping rather than even attempting a basic rebuttal. Grant also tends to run away.

    Both Grant and Adpst are white washing Iraq. They are both arguing that somehow Obama blew it and that Bush had cleaned up Iraq. It's frightening how their rabid partisan nature is causing them to essentially ignore history entirely. Adpst claimed that "we cleaned up the mess" despite the fact that bombs, kidnappings, murders were happening every day. Adpst has run from every argument I've made and gone so far as to argue that Ockham is a left wing poster. Yes, Ockham. Grant is just pretending my posts don't exist.
