    This amusing coming from someone who totally failed to understand US-NATO doctrine in Europe between 1945-2000.

    How about you lecture people on things you've demonstrated expertise on?

    I already asked him this. Grant ran away.

    We all know that both Grant and Adpst would immediately bash Obama on committing US troops back to Iraq on both the risk and cost.

    Iraq is going down fast. The US should never have pulled troops out. We should have been resolved to be there for decades, like in Germany, Japan, and South Korea.
    Wrong. We should never have gone in, in the first place. Water seeks its own level. We can't run another nation. Hell, we can barely run our own. We're broke. Time to let Iraq handle its own affairs, if it can.

    Yeah well, look who's doing the patrolling now, one fight and they laid their arms down and ran.

    That's funny.

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



    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?



    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.
    Insults and partisan talking poits aren't an argument. You've yet to say anything remotely close to expressing an opinion, other than you know it all and everyone else is stupid.

    It took The United States 230 years to build the finest fighting force in history and you expect Iraq to to do it in less than 10 years?

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.
