    There are plenty of Muslims who don't want this. Many are laying beheaded along Iraq streets right now. But there are enough people who do want this and are willing to behead those who resist that power will come easy to ISIS.

    Now they're NOW supporting the party that Filibustered the 1964 Voting Rights Act.

    They're supporting the party that came up with Jim Crowe, the party that supported Segregation, that fought forced integration and bussing.

    They support the party behind the KKK.

    They support the party thats responsible for places like Cabrini Green, Robert Taylor Homes, Magnolia Place in New Orleans and every inner city neighborhood in America

    That didnt stop him from operating a weapons program, or trying to work with terrorists. And I was assuming we had left at some point. Were we really going to maintain a no fly zone forever? Sadaam was evil, he was bound to do something evil eventually.

    But what do we do about AlQaida?

    He really didn't have any air force left. But we kept flying over time and time again. Not to mention other methods.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    My Lord, you're worse than an Obama-bot when it comes to Republicans. If you call what happened in Iraq "doing well," you are utterly disconnected from reality.

    Didn't Bush always say the goal was to have an Iraq that was independent and could defend itself? Thought I heard him say that.
    I don't recall Bush saying that we should leave too soon.

    Winter's coming, folks, if that caliphate is allowed to complete.

    Liberals are fooling themselves, as they so often do.
