    You could volunteer to put your boots on the ground. Of course, they don't have to be American boots.

    That's the point, and why the troops should have stayed!

    Violence in Iraq was still rife, bombs, killings, ethnic violence still rampant in 2008 and 2011.
    It had calmed down by the time the troops were pulled out and it was all containable. The military and the CIA originally wanted 70,000 troops to remain but this was continually whittled down by Obama until they were all removed. Now no one will mention the 'stable' word, or what an 'achievement' Iraq is.

    This idea that somehow Iraq was a thriving democracy and it was all ruined by lack of US troops is folly.
    Who said Iraq was a "thriving democracy"? Lose the hyperbole or use quotes. It was a democracy but, like most burgeoning democracies, need time and custom and rule of law to take hold.

    The will of the people was that the troops leave Iraq.
    That's when leadership is required so that the situation can be explained to the less politically aware. Megyn Kelly just shared a 2007 George Bush Iraq speech, and it’s going VIRAL |

    The U.S. Navy has a stockpile of around 3,500 Tomahawk missiles and more are being produced right now.

    We won't be running out anytime soon.

    Wow! Amazing....

    No the mistake was going in there the in the first place trying to re-brand a country in our image when they didn't ask for it. Now thanks to our arrogance, we are stuck there permenantly.

    I don't fault any President (Republican or Democrat) for trying to get us out of that f*** up region. This is the one thing I agree with Rand Paul on.

    More historical revisionism by the Right. Iraq refused to let us stay and threatened to prosecute US service men who engage in any activity that harmed civilians.

    I guess this wasn't in your rightwing talking point memo.

    Oh, OK, so, you find what the DNC did wrong, and then you go and do the same thing, huh? Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Supposedly we are under a hundred ready to go. I don't know where you got 3500 from. I hope you are right, though. Because this is going to be endless war.

    Iraq refused to let the most powerful military in thee world to stay? Do you actually believe that??? SOFA agreements are commonplace throughout the world! Military personnel always must follow local laws!

    Destruction of Israel? That won't happen. Israel has nukes, and would not be afraid to use ALL OF THEM, if they had to.
