    I have always said that Obama's pull out was arbitrary, the date set more to do with having most of those troops out and home before the election. A report I read in Canada's Globe and Mail at the time compared it to the 1973 pull out of Vietnam, one where the forces which had been supported by the US were being thrown to the wolves.

    I have long maintained that Obama's foreign policy is completely governed by domestic ratings. There does not seem to be a plan, like a badly run anything they seem to lurch from one crisis to another without any resolution and now have to return to the place they left just three years ago
    What is the Obama doctrine? I dont know anyone who can explain his foreign policy beyond it being a random clumping of seemingly unrelated issues and incoherent statements to the world.

    He may not be focused on foreign policy, but it will really come home and bite him hard.

    So you honestly don't believe that it is obvious?

    You don't have strong opinions about welfare? You think that the best foreign affairs policy is more obvious that the best welfare policy?

    There is a big difference between peace and appeasement. Your mindset looks more like appeasement. I believe in peace through strength.

    Calm down, im saying that using "its obvious" as evidence to back your claim isn't the smartest idea. Thats all.

    Yeah, you said it better.

    And aren't they kind of biting him now? He's facing a mid term and has squat to show for 6 years in office save a Nobel Peace prize no one wants to talk about anymore. He has not one success to point to despite the fact he has only been about foreign policy for the last two years. When was there a new domestic initiative out of the White House? He's jacked there, the Tea Party has him jammed up.

    Its been a mess but we still have 2 years of fail left. Man that nobel prize seems like a smack in the face right about now.
