    And I thought the repubs were all for taking responsibility for your actions. Guess I was wrong.
    the Repubs are still celebrating victory in Iraq.

There is no reason we shouldn't have kept an air base in the Kurd Controlled area and there is no way American weapons would be in the hands of ISIS with strong U.S. leadership which of course we do not have. Your support for Obama is misguided at best.
    No americans would have died at all in Iraq if George Bush hadn't decided to flex his macho muscles and get rid of whatever infrastructure existed in Iraq because of a bogus claim of weapons of mass destruction.

    Giving "authority" to the President is not the same as believing we should invade. That decision was Bush's ALONE and he chose POORLY.
    If every US president bought into your "Don't rock the boat" doctrine, this would be a much more dangerous world then it is now.

    Right, bogus claims made by Democrats prior to Bush taking office and afterwards? You have a very selective and poor memory about history and reality. Democrats controlled the Congress and gave Bush the authorization to invade Iraq. Iraq broke the peace agreement that ended the Gulf War but again that is something you don't understand. What is it about people like you who have to wait for thousands of Americans to die before you react? Is the world a safer place today with Obama in the WH? Why is that the large majority in this country today don't agree with you about Obama?

    It is amazing to me that with all that is happening in Iraq because of that foolish and poorly planned "boat rocking" you still believe it was the right thing to do. How much more will need to happen before you admit that invading Iraq was a HUGE mistake. Taking responsibility for your mistakes is the first step in avoiding more. Sticking sticks into hornets nests with no plan will not end well. Even a kid knows that.

    We don't have to wait for thousands to die, Bush's invasion resulted in 4000 American deaths and the creation of ISIS. How much more misery do you want?

    Yes, war is hell as was the attack on America and the reality that Saddam Hussein had a WMD program. Democrats knew it, the world knew it, and Bush acted on the world intelligence. No matter how many times you attempt to blame Bush the reality that today's world is the creation of Obama. His failure to negotiate the ability to keep troops in Iraq, his failure to react to the Syria situation, his total ignorance of world events and world politics all appealed to his base which apparently you are part of. GW Bush won the war in Iraq and Obama lost the peace, that is reality and the world is more dangerous today because of the incompetent in the WH, an incompetent President that only 40% support today. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you who cannot admit when you made a mistake and bought simply the rhetoric?

    I don't buy into the suggestion that invading Iraq was a mistake, much less a huge mistake. I think Iraq was a simmering powder keg and our return to hostilities in Iraq was imminent. I doubt that you know enough about the middle east to understand. And there was a plan for taking down the Saddam regime. That plan was very rapidly successful. If there was a mistake in planning, it was underestimating the insurgency. The surge strategy was a good one, however it should have been carried out sooner. The biggest mistake was Barack Hussein Obama too easily taking "no" for an answer in leaving a contingent of troops behind. As for your silly "Don't stick your finger in a hornets nest" analogy, how much of a plan do you think we had when we stuck I finger in the hornet's nest in Europe in two world wars?

    Bush installed Malaki as President of Iraq and he asked us to leave. Are you saying we should have deposed Malaki too and started over? Was that Bush's plan? If it was I never heard him say we needed to invade Iraq again. Is that how we make the world safe? Invading a country over and over until we kill everyone there? Who does that sound like? Adolf Hitler that's who.

    You simply will never get it, decisions have consequences and Obama made the decision long before taking office that Iraq was the "bad" war and was going to get out. He never thought about the consequences of pulling out nor does he apparently care. The world isn't safer today because of Obama and that is reality.
