    Such as GOOD LUCK Mr. President ?
    A good president doesn't need luck or an army of apologists.

    While it is true there was a prior agreement in place, it is also true that Maliki's government was open to a commitment of troops. This was something though that Obama clearly didn't want, thus some of the blame lies with him. Ultimately I blame the Iraqis and not Bush or Obama, but if we are going to be fair, he did play a part in it.

    Are you saying there never would of been and ISIS if Saddam was still in power? Are you also saying then that there never would of been an Arab Spring?

    I would argue that most world leaders need an element of luck.

    An element perhaps. Relying on it not so much.

    I've not much use for Barrack Obama but I certainly support him and those Americans putting themselves in harm's way to help these people. It might be a good time to show some support for the USA now rather than quibbling over the politics of it all.

    I just hope Obama hits them really hard and leaves no doubt in anyone's mind that America is not to be messed with.

    realistic is more like it.

    or do you not remember what it took to oust the taliban from a similar scenerio.
    ousting these guys is going to be harder as they seem to be well armed and well organized.

    I guess the tail emblems weren't close enough to be seen, but the type of aircraft was identifiable.

    Children are being beheaded, but of course Democrats don't give a rip. Let's just smoke weed and talk about peace.
