    Now your comparing two different types of fecal matter and choosing the one from the Democrap. (See what I did there?)
    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.

    If I recall correctly, US troops didn't secure the munitions upon invading Iraq, and those were used in IEDs to kill and injure US and other troops.

    Name some munitions and equipment left by US troops in Iraq upon leaving. and, if the US did leave equipment, why didn't Malaki secure it?

At least, that what I believe, if they get involved which I think is a "slim to none" chance.
    Russia is the one to watch here.. they are looking for a reason to go in..and will protect Irans interest..

    Probably the mystery of what happened to Saddam's WMD will never be fully known. He had plenty of time to move out a lot of stuff during the 12 long weeks that we negotiated with the U.N. that was reluctant to enforce its own resolutions re Iraq. But to put that into perspective, 60 million people were killed to put down tyranny in World War II. Most of the Iraqis killed were killed by other tyrants who did not want there to be democracy or freedom in the Middle East. But the decade of sanctions were also taking their toll on the Iraqi people with some 50,000, many of those children, believed to have died from malnutrition and other deprivation as a direct result of those sanctions that were severely hurting the people and greatly enriching Saddam and his cronies.

    But in World War II, the tyrants were overcome with overwhelming force and brought to complete, unconditional surrender. Then we could help them rebuild under our terms alone. The 'evil' nations were completely transformed into peaceful allies, good neighbors to the world.

    We didn't have the will to do that in Iraq. As we have done in every military conflict since, however, we didn't have the will to use overwhelming force and bring the nation to complete submission in Iraq. We just stopped fighting the war. And every time we have done that, we left an enemy, not an ally, when we left.

    I don't know why anybody thought Iraq would be any different.

    "One reason the Obama administration resisted giving arms to rebel groups in Syria despite pressure from Congress is the fear the weapons would end up with al Qaeda-affiliates. If ISIS reaches Baghdad, that fear would be realized, and the weapons could then even be used against rebel groups in Syria supported by the U.S.

    U.S. officials are worried that more weapons could fall into ISIS’s hands if the militants reach Baghdad. The U.S. has already sold the Iraqi military armed helicopters, drones, Hellfire missiles and a number of small arms."
