    Personally, I don't think he's doing enough. Can we really afford a full-blown terrorist stronghold in the Middle East? Pay now or pay bigger later.

    Edit: I'm sure not well-informed about what's going on, or about Iran, but if Iran will handle it? I say let 'em have at it.
    ...
    If you give Iraq to Iran, they probably won't annex it, probably keep it as a puppet state... and then you'll have Iran and Syria together as it were.


    So Iran won't stop at Iraq. It'll go and help out Syria against their ISIS group which is the main force of the revolution against the loyalists. And then Iran will have 2 puppet states.

    It is not a wise idea to do that. If the USA entered Iraq to end Saddam's rule and bring democracy, do that. The job is clearly unfinished.

    Obama is lost. Does anyone believe he did not contemplate something like this happening when nearly 100% of the Washington buttheads knew it would? Impeach Obama.
    We have an embassy there because 1-nations tend to try to maintain diplomatic relationships, even with those we arent altogether friendly with and 2-We are working to develop a positive relationship with the government of Iraq.

    THAT is the real condemnation of this administration. They have been incompetent since day one. They have supported uprisings without considering consequences, supported the ouster of traditional allies by extremists, and now are supporting terrorist faction in Syria.

    Its amateur hour there.

    Neither Iraq nor any other Middle East country will ever be a truly democratic state.

    That's not going to happen. The people there don't do democracy.

    Read their history.

    Don't take my word for this,just wait and see.

    The primary reason being bantered about is the power vacuum which occurred in 2011 when the US troops completely left Iraq.
    Secondary reasons are, unchecked Syrian violence which has overflowed into Iraq, lack of inclusive leadership by Maliki by ignoring Sunni's in his country and Maliki's closer ties with Iran's Shiite government....
    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.

    Wesley Clark got it right. The neocons wanted to destabilize the Middle East, they just thought they could control the chaos and turn it to their advantage.

    Iraq is hard to be rebuilt. Its inner balance was totally destroyed.
