    Three years ago when we "Cut and Run" the Iraqi government was as stable as it could be. If we would left a presence there (10 thousand men) the country would not be in the bad shape it is.

    Then blame the Iraqis for imposing a demand that our troops would not be granted immunity if we stayed.

    If I didn't respond to your diatribe, it's possible you may have
    engaged in revisionism or broad sweeping generalizations.
    I don't have time for either, and you're probably on my IGNORE list.

    They will welcome us as liberators, the war will be over in four months and we can use the Iraqi oil to pay the cost of the war.
    Hmmmm, I remember when Obama and his administration talked like that....NOT.

    No, they said things like Iraq is stable, we want to win the Good War in Afghanistan, the Iraqi government is ready to take over, we are going to lead from behind in Libya and that will be just fine, al-Qaeda is decimated, Doing (fill in the thing that someone then immediately did) X is a Red Line, if you like your insurance you can keep it, etc.

    Shall we tally up a list of the insurgencies which "died" and compare it to the list of the ones still going strong after ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty.....?

    "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

    Yeah, that worked out real well, didn't it? LOObustingup.jpg
