    Indeed. What reasonable human being wouldn't blame it on Bush? And where was all this right-wing criticism when Nixon pulled out of Vietnam?
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Maybe they are in Iraq, but isn't that pretty standard there?

    The US president is only in charge of the US, not other countries.

    Too bad he isn't using Israel as his indirect proxy.

    Seems these Iraqi gov't soldiers were just as big of cowards as the ones Bush/Cheney took out.
    Obama should have seen that coming, don't ya think ?
    Someone once said that people get the government they deserve.

    Why is it the responsibility of the US to be involved in foreign civil wars?

    Personally, I could care less what happens in Iraq, that's their problem. If they want to keep the government they have, then the supporters of that government need to man up and make that happen. Otherwise, I can only assume that they must support the Islamic extremists, which is fine also (as long as I don't have to live there).

    Iraq is going down fast. The US should never have pulled troops out. We should have been resolved to be there for decades, like in Germany, Japan, and South Korea.
    We should just nuke mecca and get it over with.

    It did start many years later, but Bush said that taking out Saddam would lead to other nations in the region casting off their dictators. Except that when it started happening, you guys on the right were too busy puffing up your chests about "Obama bad" to take credit for your guy being right in the long run.

    That's how f'ed up things are now. Here's a liberal giving Bush more credit than a conservative.

    Then you would make an enemy out of every Islamic country as well as every individual Muslim.
