    To conservatives, dropping bombs makes one a strong leader.

    If Democrats want to win back all of Congress, Obama should authorize airstrikes all over the Middle East, dropping bombs on random open-desert areas in Arab countries and Iran.

    Those like US Conservative are waiting. They are waiting to see how to criticize Obama for this action. Either he will bomb too much or too little. They haven't decided which way to go to get the maximum blame toward this administration.

    And we now need to clean it up.

    Too complex for you?

    Oh my God man you are so off. Groups like ISIS were on the sidelines waiting for the US to leave because they know the Iraq government is made up of a bunch of b****es. That region has become so dependent of the US holding their hands. I thought you conservatives didn't like people sucking on the government t***.

    Bottom line. Thanks to Bush getting rid of the "necessary evil". The US has pretty much committed ourselves to staying in Iraq permanently.

    Obama WAS keeping a small presence in Iraq to keep the peace but it exploded anyway.

    Dubya's doctrine was to support a corrupt government under Maliki which made ISIS possible, I may dislike Obama but he was strictly following Dubya's policy on this.

    So Dubya is as much to blame for getting the US into this mess as Obama has. If Saddam Hussein had stayed in power this wouldnt have happened. All Dubya did was replace a brutal dictator who tortured his own people with a group of sadistic terrorists who are exporting their war internationally- Bush Jr. has done more to help terrorists than any previous president and Obama is just as bad.

    I agree, there is plenty of blame to go around. Perhaps without President's Obama's fetish about getting rid of Assad, letting him put down the threat to his government, ISIS certainly would never have become this strong and maybe just had been a foot note in history.

    How has doing away with Qaddafi worked in Libya? Libya now has many tribes fighting each other, has become a place for terrorist training camps, it is pure chaos and turmoil. Is this success? Letting the pain in the butt Saddam remain in power in Iraq, ISIS wouldn't have come charging in.

    I asked this before and will ask it again and again, does anyone in Washington ever do an assessment of what may happened once we remove these dictators? What and whom may replace them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Good morning, MMC.

    I do recall that Senator Feinstin, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was outraged a few weeks ago that she was not told about what was going on, and publically stated so! Apparently BHO doesn't trust the high-ranking officials in his own party either! So much for transparency that was promised!

When you send a bunch of jets, Tomahawks, and bombers, and rain them over 30,000 extremists, you or Kerry or Obama or Fox News can call it whatever you want, but it's war. Now, what you are doing is that instead of rallying behind our troops and our CiC as any conservative used to do in the past, all that you want is to assign blame and find irrelevant points to criticize. Shame on you.
    People like US Conservative care more about their ideology than they do our country. They would be willing to sacrifice untold numbers of our military in order to satiate their hatred of Obama.

    So, just so i have this straight, liberals hated Bush for going into the ME so much so that they put in a guy that was sure to abruptly pull out as fast as he could, and when that is shown to be a complete mistake, its still not his fault?

    Wow! Amazing....

    All I can say is this latest round of Obama military aggression sure does make fools of that Danish D'Salsa movie maker idiot and the many fools who thought that farce was a good documentary, depicting Obama as a puppet sent here by radical liberals to destroy American hegemony due to his Kenyan anti-colonialism. What a herd of dumb asses.

    Too little too late unless we are going to continue to bomb for months or years.
