    So the questions is, What happened during the period when it was 'stable' to what we have today? The answer should be clear.
    Never better off is the clear answer.

    Then its apparent that you are I'll informed of conditions in Libya, Egypt and Iraq. But then that's understandable.

    That's more nonsense. Do you genuinely not understand what caused the difference in the situation in Iraq when Obama made those statements and what we have today?

    Along with most people, I realise that US policy of regime change has destabilised the ME and its in flames now. That this has escaped you is bazaar.

    Yeah, I think Obama's going to put his tail between his legs and yield. Whatever international foreign policy cred he got for going after bin Laden in Pakistan, he squandered with how he handled Syria's chemical weapons and Russia's invations of Ukraine.

    I don't think Obama is going to give a ransom to ISIS after they beheaded that journalist was killed.

    It's irrelevant to the fact that our policies in the ME are inflaming things.
