    Who are we going to declare war against, and why would we want to do that?

    Did the ISIS attack us?

    After exactly how many hundreds of years?

    Heck, people in my neck of the woods still chant "the south will rise again" and still fly confederate flags.

    We aren't an empire "now" we have been an empire for some time. And a pretty good one, as they go, certainly a different kind. And yeah, we do create new realities.

    less than one. Most insurgencies last about 10-15 years.

    Yeah? How many of them attack police stations, local army depots, etc?

    You should have informed Bush and Malakie of that, they are the ones who decided that we should pull out after just nine years.

    Regardless, obviously what we had been doing in Iraq wasn't working if 800 insurgents chased off 30,000 Iraqy soldiers. You can dress a man in a military uniform, but you can't make him fight.

    I think you have "Bush" confused with "Obama", who was the President who decided that we would pull out without leaving behind the necessary forces.

    Regardless, obviously what we had been doing in Iraq wasn't working if 800 insurgents chased off 30,000 Iraqy soldiers. You can dress a man in a military uniform, but you can't make him fight.
    You think it was 800 dudes? That's interesting.

    And who is going to pay for that? And when are we going to attack Russia? They produce 3 times more oil than Iraq does.
