    You cannot have a corrupt government and sectarian violence and then claim victory. Not under Obama and not under Bush.
    Talk about projection and opinions. Iraq had an election or did you forget. In 2008 the situation in Iraq was a lot better than you believe and better than it is today, but then again, you speculate and ignore. Your opinion is noted

    Obama arrogance led to the loss of the peace and history is showing that

    Your opinion is noted, but it is still an opinion. A corrupt government, with sectarian violence and open doors to terrorists is not a win.

    There's that Obama deranged Syndrome coming through on your part again. The Corrupt government and sectarian violence was there when Bush was leaving. Hardly peace.

    It was the elected government of Iraq and there was relative peace. The Status of Forces Agreement was signed in November 2008 and Bush left office in January 2009. Obama had three years to negotiate a stable peace and failed. Sorry but that is reality

    Again your opinion noted, but nothing of fact just opinion. You call a corrupt government and sectarian violence in 2008 peace.

    Yes, I would call this relative peace, notice what happened when our troops left? Obama's arrogance cost thousands of Iraqi lives. Doesn't matter to you though, does it?

    Notice the significant drop in 2008-2012

    Ah so you are one of the people that think we should have occupied Iraq like we did with Germany even though we weren't wanted AND there was a corrupt government and sectarian violence.

    Your opinion again noted, but it is nothing but an opinion that is rejected.

    I have been told we weren't wanted because of Obama's arrogance. Obama hated the Iraq War and his arrogance showed in the negotiations after the status of forces agreement. Only in your world isn't that the case. Your opinion noted

    Well you were told wrong. But then again opinions are all you have. You think Sectarian violence and a corrupt government equals peace. That's all anyone needs to know about you.

    No, I think the withdrawal of ALL U.S. forces left a vacuum that ISIS is filling but then that really doesn't matter to you, does it. The numbers show what happened after the surge and then what is happening now after the withdrawal. Seems that actual data that you asked for confuses you.

    Your opinion noted and rejected. The situation didn't change under Bush and you had a corrupt government and sectarian violence. You think that allowing the powder keg to blow under a different president makes it a success for Bush. Sorry it doesn't. Your boy left the vaccuum when he invaded Iraq in the first place. Nothing changed except you think a corrupt government and sectarian violence equals peace.
