For those who got their notions of U.S. history from the America-hating Howard Zinn--the kind of mind that considers Bill Maher and Janeane Garofalo intellectuals--I'm sure it looms large. It was just one of many disgusting episodes in the sordid history of the U.S., a country born in sin, created as it was by wealthy, white, male slave owners. This powdered-wig and buckled-shoes set stopped beating their slaves just long enough to give us that stupid, outdated constitution the teabaggers still worship. Big effing whoop, dude.

    And it has been almost all downhill from there--germ warfare and genocide against peaceful Native Americans to steal their land. Brutal enslavement of African-Americans, who were only considered three-fifths of a person! Oppression of women--they were a husband's property, to rape whenever he pleased, and like the slaves, they weren't even allowed to vote. And constant colonialist warmongering and exploitation of people of color around the world, all to line the pockets of the white plutocrats who pulled the strings in this rotten capitalist system.

    So, hey, big surprise that they nuked the poor Japanese, right? I mean, they'd already stolen the land from the ones who lived here--U.S. citizens!--and thrown them into concentration camps. Pretty obvious that the racists in this sick country couldn't wait to try out their new toy on some non-white guinea pigs. And the reich-wing warmongers here talk about Muslims! News flash: All you good little Ozzie-and-Harriet, rah-rah, red-white-and-blue Americans are every inch the war criminals they are. They never would have attacked us in the first place, if we hadn't been provoking them for decades and stealing their oil.

    And now I'm gonna go practice a little dharma, and ask forgiveness from the rest of the world for Amerikkka's litany of atrocities. Maybe I'll spark a bowl and meditate a little on how to get some peace in this world. Arms are for hugging, man. And violence has never solved anything in the history of the world. I think Howard Zinn said that, but I'm not sure. It might have been this cool high school teacher I used to share a bong with once in a while.
    Nailed it. Bill Whittle really knocked out Mahar with video he did on hiroshima and nagasaki.

    Do they really? What evidence do you have of this?
    Very funny that you don't consider some of these other countries to be democracies just because they line up to vote. And funny a Canadian has such desperate motives to defend an American presidents failed policy in Iraq. And, a huge majority of Americans disagree with you.
    And equally funny, I suppose, that an American voter should care about the voters of Iraq and Venezuela.

    I once heard Larry Elder completely dismantle J. Garofalo and expose her for the dim-witted leftist fraud she is. He also made a documentary film that did the same to Michael Moore. Maher is a smug little commie snot, but I think he's quite a hero of the generations that used Zinn's "A People's History of the United States" as the text for their (so-called) history classes.

    And now we have the ****ing NYT telling the world we're going to have manned and unmanned flights over Syria.
    I didn't expect the press to join the GOP in sabotaging the President during a time of ongoing war .
    Hmmm. Liberals are concerned about sabotaging a President in time of war? When did this start?

    Does it really matter?
    Yes. It’s called History for future generations of Americans. Hopefully they will learn from george the seconds mistaken belief he can bring Democracy to those that…evidently, don’t want or desire Democracy.

    We invaded Iraq whether or not you like it or not, it happened, get over it.
    You forgot to mention why we invaded Iraq.Hint…it was THE bush/shooter/rummy lies that got us into Iraq.


    "Your" President said it was stable and a functioning govt. He lost the peace, that is reality.
    Actually it was Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki that ask us to leave his country at the end of 2011.Do you think that we shouldda stayed where we weren’t wanted?

    It seems that Maliki thought that his government and security forces were more than capable of confronting any remaining threats to Iraq's security, sovereignty and unity.Kinda looks like he was wrong eh?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    They sure had a funny way of saying it.

    In one of his final acts in office, President Bush in December of 2008 had signed a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with the Iraqi government that set the clock ticking on ending the war he’d launched in March of 2003. The SOFA provided a legal basis for the presence of U.S. forces in Iraq after the United Nations Security Council mandate for the occupation mission expired at the end of 2008. But it required that all U.S. forces be gone from Iraq by January 1, 2012, unless the Iraqi government was willing to negotiate a new agreement that would extend their mandate. And as Middle East historian Juan Cole has noted, “Bush had to sign what the [Iraqi] parliament gave him or face the prospect that U.S. troops would have to leave by 31 December, 2008, something that would have been interpreted as a defeat… Bush and his generals clearly expected, however, that over time Washington would be able to wriggle out of the treaty and would find a way to keep a division or so in Iraq past that deadline.”

    But ending the U.S. troop presence in Iraq was an overwhelmingly popular demand among Iraqis, and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki appears to have been unwilling to take the political risk of extending it. While he was inclined to see a small number of American soldiers stay behind to continue mentoring Iraqi forces, the likes of Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, on whose support Maliki’s ruling coalition depends, were having none of it. Even the Obama Administration’s plan to keep some 3,000 trainers behind failed because the Iraqis were unwilling to grant them the legal immunity from local prosecution that is common to SOF agreements in most countries where U.S. forces are based.

    So when the Dems keep the Senate it will mean that Obama made the Right call and you'll admit it ...correct?
    The nation is weary of war, especially in Iraq. Thanks to the air support, Iraq will not fall to the ISIL and that will be plenty for most of us.
    Why don't you go over there yourself and set it right? I'm sure the Iraqi army would take volunteers. To quote the man who started this shindig "Bring it on!

    No, Obama loses all around-appeasing your enemies, the same ones you almost ASSISTED merely a year before, as they expand IS NOT MAKING THE RIGHT CALL.
