    What?? Where did i stick up for Malaki? There is a real reading comprehension problem among leftists, and I blame the teachers unions.

    CON no sense! A contrived series of lies to build a house of cards, a coalition that was a few miles south of great, a democracy in name only, and a new terrorist breeding ground where none had existed before. More over we enabled Iran to gain HUGE advantage in the region. As far as winning a war, that is off the deep end!!!! We BRIBED our way out of Iraq after doing ever stupid move imaginable!

    As far as President Obama pulling out our troops- the host nation refused to sign a status of forces agreement. Would you have us force our 'ally' to the table? Force out one hand picked crony for a more pliant one??? More bribes to what many outside of the CON circle saw as a corrupt Shia power structure. (do note the Kurds refused to play with anyone, even now as ISIL is poised on their borders)

    BushII never won Iraq so the Obama could lose it.... get real....
    Nothing in this fact-free rant makes any sense at all.

    Equally they should also feel that we won't be involved if they don't involve us.

    Doing what we are doing is not going to win us any support and it is only going to create more problems down the road. Just like the Cold War.
    America, under the leadership of Ronald Reagan, won the Cold War.

    Barrack Obama feels it is his decision whether there should be war or not, an opinion ISIS has chosen to ignore. I also don;t know whose support you want to win. But yes, there should be no halfway measures when fighting an enemy.

    What do you take me for?
    Then he should have been more clear, What we do know that he never negotiated a SOFA and left in triumph, just as he had promised he would.

    You should ask yourself why BHO would want a SOFA if he was intending to remove the troops anyway?

    And he is right. Shouldn't the US have protected their investments in Iraq, including those who fought and died there? Why invest all of that and then just walk, knowing how weak Iraq was?

    This is one of the problems with the freaking idea that Congress declares war and needs to be consulted.

    I think the President should be the one declaring war and taking immediate action. Or at the very least, if there is Congress consultation it should be absolutely secret and behind closed doors.

    In war, the element of surprise is very important and is only possible once - so, the first strike was the time to kill the maximum number of ISIS high level commanders and important personnel.

    By engaging in our endless and paralyzed political process, we gave to the enemy all the time to hide and avoid our bombs.
    You realize it was Obama who gave them warning, 10+ days ago, I hope.

    Obama DOES have to do something, he's losing married women because he's soft on terror. The dems know this, and the elections are a stones throw away. He's everyones President-do you extend your flawed logic to Obamacare? Not one republican voted for it-but EVERYONE IS FORCED TO COMPLY.

    See how it works in reality?

    By Obama's own words it was a success, so logically the ISIS situation is his bad, right?


    And this montage is pretty damning...
