    I didn't realize there were so many chicken hawks lately, are these the same people who were for the first invasion? or is this because people think Obama should make the same mistakes as Bush?

    Why didn't Malaki's forces stop it? Or is he waiting at the Baghdad airport to leave too?

    He never imagined staying for decades on end. A little before the war he said this

    George W. Bush - Wikiquote

    As far as the Arab Spring, that was part of his overall vision too:

    The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a watershed event in the global democratic revolution

    Here, let me help you with that.

    No doubt you'll believe the central point about the Democrats and their leadership (and how they promoted the invasion), because the rest of the article takes a dump all over Bush.

    The problem is Iraq is a Persian descendent and not Arab. The Arab spring as identified occurred must later than 2003, and started in Egypt and Tunisia.

    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.
