    And you always accept what Obama says. Anyway, when you break a country, you own that country, someone famously told Bush who didn't listen, he broke it and then decreed all troops to leave by the end of 2011. I think Obama fulfilled that. Apparently some others think we should do a Germany or South Korea with Iraq. Of course not breaking it was the preferred.

    The only thing that the USA accomplished in Iraq was to give Iran a friendly neighbor.

    How did that help the USA?

    Let's defend our homeland instead of defending everyone else's homeland.



    I'm totally down with that idea.

    After we bring all of our infrastructure up to world-class standards and everyone in the USA has the same standard of living that the people in Denmark have-then we can start thinking about helping other countries.

    HOT TIP: That won't be happening anytime soon, unless my guess (Based on current reality.) is wrong

    G. W. Bush is relaxing on a big lounge chair right now with a big smile on his face.

    The man doesn't have a worry in the world.

    God bless him, I hope that he lives long and gets what he deserves.

    True enough, Dave Fagan already pointed that out.

    You're forgetting the part about Obama not leaving a Status of Forces agreement in place.

    I've already said plenty on this sad topic, if you have anything to say, get after it.

    You'll never drag G.W. Bush out of the hole that he's dug himself into with his stupid attack on Iraq (Which was no threat to the USA.).








    100 years from now we'll look back on this and laugh, but I doubt that many people in Iraq will be laughing much in the near future. Except, maybe at the USA.




    You can cure ignorance with education, but there's no cure for stupidity.
