    Did you miss my words "in the longrun" or did you purposely ignore them?

    One could argue that in the long run the shock and awe campaign, that left everyone in Iraq with a relative dead, probably recruited terrorists.

    He said in the debate with Romney that he would not sign a SOFA agreement. Are you actually an American living in the United States?

    In the long run the country was stable and Obama's greatest achievement.

    Malaki had to say what he did for political reasons, and that was understood at the time, but no one thought this posturing would ever lead to troop removal.

    After thousands of American troops dead and wounded, more in Coalition troops, would any serious person leave Iraq because a minor actor like Malaki tells them to? They could negotiate a SOFA Agreement, as in many other places around the world but, as Obama has said, he didn't want to sign an agreement but wanted to bring the troops home. He then said what a great job he did in doing that, and as he promised. This was against the advice of all the military, and what's happening now was predicted by the CIA and the Bush administration and now even Obama is changing his story for the the low info's. I know you know all this, btw, im just reiterating for the LIV's.

    Bumping up your thread again USC.....The US believes it has killed the Leader of Khorasan. He was Kuwaiti.....not Syrian.


    US Believes Khorasan Leader Killed In Syria Strike



    The United States believes that a U.S. strike in Syria has killed Mohsin al-Fadhli, the leader of a group of al Qaeda militants known as Khorasan, a U.S. official told Reuters on Wednesday.

    U.S. officials have said the al Qaeda-linked group posed an immediate threat to the West and had been nearing the execution of a plot against U.S. or European targets.
