    What if the only way to do that was to give the ability for the Iraqis to try Americans for crimes if they were limited to after the occupation?

    Oh Kay HB, I'll say we have neutral ground.

    At least HB is being reasonable enough to meet in the middle. Go the other half NP.

    And SOFA could have been made or protection given just like for the troops there are given now.

    I thought the Iraqi government wouldn't agree to SOFA?

It's because while they couldn't openly do it, they did support the decision to remove the government.
    The Obama Administration hasn't, as far as I can tell, cut aid to anyone anywhere.

    Recall that the election of the MB was mired in controversy and the Egyptian people rose up soon after.

    The Generals recommended 20,000 - 24,000, and that should have been approved. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/16/wo...ners.html?_r=0

    Yeah! MORE WAR!!!! Just what the American people want!!!!

    Let's send MORE people over there to fight ISIS...which btw is a major part of the SAME rebel groups that those on the American Right were wanting us to ARM in their fight against Syria!

    "Let's help ISIS - they're the good guys!"
    "Oh! NOW let's bomb ISIS - they're the bad guys!"

    Sorta reminds me of something, doesn't it? From the same side of the political spectrum:

    "Let's help Saddam Hussein in his fight against Iran - he's the good guy!"
    "Oh! NOW let's invade Iraq - Saddam Hussein's the bad guy!"

    It depends how much they pushed it.....There doesn't seem to be a problem now........We have close to 1,000 troops in Iraq now.
