    So you have none. Thanks!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

And personally I see it as because of this administration's failed weak foreign policies has embolden the despots of the world to move forward. It's a crying as shame to see.
    See how Bush's invasion of Iraq destabilized the whole region? Just to think, we went there for something that was never there in the first place, WMDs. such a shame.

    CNN now reporting that Iranian Revolutionary Guard soldiers are in Iraq fighting ISIS.

    That should make for strange bedfellows.

    This whole thing is bad, very bad. I'm feeling very concerned about what's happening over there.

    Correction, Bush was going on intelligence that the Congress almost unanimously supported as being truthful including John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. Though the WMD's didn't show up there was plenty of evidence that they were still making chemical weapons. And there was plenty of evidence Saddam was funding terrorist organizations while our men were vulnerable in Afghanistan. Stop glossing over what really occurred.

    It doesn't help that President Obama IGNORED advise from the military experts that it was TOO SOON to pull troops out of Iraq and that they needed AT LEAST another year to take care of things over there.

    Aluminum tubes which were no longer usable.

    Nothing to make ICBM's with, nothing to produce a mushroom cloud. How's that for gloss?

    Yes, Congressional authorization for use of force in Iraq includes several reasons for that action including Saddam's destabilization of the region, his sponsorship of international terrorists and his payments for suicide bombings, his used of nerve gas on his own people and the overall treatment of the Kurds an Shia, attacks on US aircraft, an attempt to assassainate George HW Bush, and so on. All of that was taken almost verbatum from the Iraq Regime Change law signed by Bill Clinton.

    Re: Iraq insurgents take Saddam's home town in lightning advance

    None of this blame does anything to help anyone. We were already there when Obama took office as President. He is SUPPOSED to be able to handle the job. He should have taken the advice of the people around him who know what they are talking about rather than being an arrogant . . . . and taking matters into his own hands, as inexperienced as he was. This was based on NOTHING but his own silly ideological beliefs, that many other liberals share, about "peace on earth."
