    We're any of those seventy thousand going to be Canadian? Love how you're obsessed with committing American blood and treasure. I've got a better idea for you.

    As most Americans now realise, both Afghanistan, and Iraq wars were a mistake. Get in front of the parade.

    A, you hide from debate, under your ignore button and take punches from the sideline and 2, you play the naive game that in any dispute between the White House and another country, the White House is always telling the truth, a bit patronising.

    In fact there was a huge American investment there of lives, injuries and capital. To not protect that investment, and all the sacrifices made, is the greatest blunder, a deliberate ballsup, ever made by any US President. And he did it all for politics.

    But he took it a step further. Not only did he lose all that was previously gained, but many more thousands will now die as a result of his naivety, foolishness, lies and incomparable incompetence.

    In fact the White House under this Administration have made lies a part of their policy, with the clear understanding that they can fool 40% of the people 100% of the time.

    Afghanistan was certainly no mistake. Iraq was a series of mistakes, the most serious was pulling out without a plan.

    At what point do we say it is time to cut our losses?
    If we have learned anything from the last decade plus, it is that the middle east region is not worth our investment.

    I can't help but seeing another decade of time wasted there, a trillion or more wasted, 6000+ more lives wasted and ruined, and all for the same result.

    The most serious was going in the first place.
    Most people hate to admit it, but Iraq was more stable BEFORE we intervened.
