    Don't worry Chris, Obama's National Security Advisor is Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett is calling the shots.

    At least not in the short run.

    Not that it matters.

    The Idiot in Chief is going to collude with Iran and this whole thing around Baghdad will be over in a heartbeat.

    Then we'll sit idly by as Iran steamrolls the Pech in Kirkuk and keeps right on going into Kurdistan ending even the philosophical notion of a Kurdish state, which sucks because the Kurds are probably the only people in that region who deserve to be cared about.

    This could be the absolute best thing that ever came of the War on Terror.

    But Obama will find some way to screw it up and ensure we come out of it as the biggest loser.

    In January 2007 then Senator Barack Obama went on Face the Nation to share his words of wisdom. First the Illinois junior senator refused to tell Bob Schieffer if he would cut off funding for our troops in Iraq. Then he added this:

    “One of the things that I strongly disagree with Senator McCain is, this notion that we have future catastrophe to look forward to if we start phasing down troops…

    …And so those of us who object to what I consider to be a disastrous policy on part of the Bush Administration, have in fact put forward a different approach. One that by the way tracks what the Iraq study group talked about. Two months before the Iraq study group came out with its proposal, I suggested that, if we initiate a phased withdrawal that provides us leverage to make sure the Iraqis are actually doing what needs to be done to arrive at a political accommodation. And Senator McCain and the President seem to believe that only a military solution can accomplish our goals there.”

    You really have no idea what's going on over there, what's happened over there politically over the past six or eight years, or why.

    This ideological drivel is just ****ing stupid.

    It's like listening to a six-year-old rant.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Would you support the US losing, if it meant Obama looked bad and got removed or would you support a US victory, even if it made Obama look good?

    Who cares?

    As long as they're paying for it, who really cares?

    we should, mattering on the banking nexus that will fund the terror against the west.. many dont get that it was GWB that broke that up and cut off trhe the ability wash the illegal slush funds that Syria was washing for Iraq and much much more and Saddam was using that money to allow AQ- training and funding..

    Personally, I'm leaning toward Iran/Russia. China has other goals on their mind at the moment.

    It seems that as usual Obama disregards the best advice he can get and just does what he wants to do. I wonder if it has ever crossed his mind that perhaps there is someone somewhere with more complete knowledge of certain subjects that he possibly has? It certainly doesn't appear that notion has ever crossed his mind.

    You ask a question that can never happen.. its moot now.. Obama was vested on making sure GWB would never be given that victory we had already won..
