    But No! It's not! Is now the cry. Well folks, you can't have it both ways.

    Either you support, or at least not depose, limit and manage these dictators, or you wade in depose them and have to accept the results such as this.

    You can't have it both ways. The two choices are mutually exclusive.
    Ummm...there is a third option.

    Leave them the 'f' alone and have America mind it's own business.

    Greetings Pogara!

    This administration was never ever transparent. Not from it's first day. That was just little more than a silly and transparent campaign promise to the ObamaBots to cheer about.

    On his first full day in office, President Barack Obama ordered federal officials to “usher in a new era of open government” and “act promptly” to make information public.
    As Obama nears the end of his term, his administration hasn’t met those goals, failing to follow the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act, according to an analysis of open-government requests filed by Bloomberg News.
    Nineteen of 20 cabinet-level agencies disobeyed the law requiring the disclosure of public information: The cost of travel by top officials. In all, just eight of the 57 federal agencies met Bloomberg’s request for those documents within the 20-day window required by the Act.
    “When it comes to implementation of Obama’s wonderful transparency policy goals, especially FOIA policy in particular, there has been far more ‘talk the talk’ rather than ‘walk the walk,’” said Daniel Metcalfe, director of the Department of Justice’s office monitoring the government’s compliance with FOIA requests from 1981 to 2007.
    The Bloomberg survey was designed in part to gauge the timeliness of responses, which Attorney General Eric Holder called “an essential component of transparency” in a March 2009 memo. About half of the 57 agencies eventually disclosed the out-of-town travel expenses generated by their top official by Sept. 14, most of them well past the legal deadline.
    Obama Cabinet Flunks Disclosure Test With 19 in 20 Ignoring Law - Bloomberg

    If anything, this administration is the most lawless administration ever, just ignoring the laws that it doesn't like. If anything, this is what we've seen time and time again.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    You were making good points until you implied the blanket statement that dems would not know what is going on or be for military action. I say blow the f***kers off the face of the earth.

    It's called collateral damage but you do realize how hard it is to verify this right? How many western reporters would be caught dead in the region and risk their heads chopped off?

    Not at all..considering obama has weakened US standing in the world this campaign is not meant to do anything but distract and cover. Its cheap political campaigning and you fall for it.

    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.

    Heya PoS. Uhm when did Maliki get Elected? Also when did BO know about ISIL?

    I like how you keep forgetting that Al Malicki had no interest in providing a place in his government for the Sunnies which has a lot to do with the situation.

    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.
    Greetings, Pero.

    I just read that the White House did reluctantly inform Assad that air strikes would be taking place in Syria, contrary to BHO's initial downright refusal to do so. It seems that worldwide condemnation of his arrogance toward a sovereign nation did cause a change of thinking. When I look at the countries in the "coalition," I don't see many faces friendly toward the US. This seems to indicate that although they have fought amongst themselves for a thousand years due to religious reasons, they will stick together when "their ox is being gored" by ISIS, and use us to fight their battles for them. I wish I could say the same for our ""allies," who apparently don't agree with what we're doing, and will only provide humanitarian aid to the non-combatants who are being harmed. Bad mess all around, because if it doesn't succeed, we'll be held responsible!
