    For the left the answer is simple-for politics-and that INCLUDES the anti-war left.

    See how it works in reality?
    And the two men, Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy, both of which had reservations about the Patriot Act, conveniently had their offices anthraxed. Subsequently, they came around.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    And this montage is pretty damning...
    Contrast all of this nonsense with this. Megyn Kelly just shared a 2007 George Bush Iraq speech, and it’s going VIRAL |

    Every so often they make it extra obvious.

    Obama didn't want a status of forces agreement. A status of forces agreement would have meant that Obama couldn't say he ended the war and that he brought the troops home. Then, when things went to ****, he crawfished saying that none of it was his idea.

    Obama leads by looking at polls, taking credit that isn't his, and assigning blame to others for his failures.

    It's the political game, and of course when politicians start their games, the generals must be rolling their eyes since politics always gets in the way of efficient warfare.
    I don't subscribe to conspiracy theories. I won't say "Obama did that so that his buddies the Muslims had time to hide" or other crazy such theories.
    It's just that there is all this game being played about the president's and congress' powers and all and both sides do their best to blame the other side or even sabotage the other side.
    The nation's military would be better off if the decisions got made secretly and they were allowed to implement them by surprise. Unfortunately this is not how the political system is set up.

    Barrack Obama is a product of the educational environment where America was largely to blame for the world's ills, the American right wing was 'dangerous', and he understood that third world countries just wanted to get along in a peaceful world and America should just let them alone to do that. Barrack Obama had his 'conspiracy theories' as well, but most of these are disappearing now that he has been in office for six years and has a better idea of what's really going on.

    Still, like the leftists we see on here and elsewhere, he has a difficult time in coming to terms with the real world, and his reluctance to act against the dangers obvious to those not blinded by leftist thinking demonstrates that. That's why he figures just a few air strikes to demonstrate American power will give them pause. But ISIS and others understand too well his lack of resolve in getting the big job done and will continue until strong leadership becomes available..
