    You're very wrong about ISIS' origins. They are not AQI renamed. They are decidedly more capable, better equipped (thanks to us), practice different tactics, and have a much larger Chechnyan influence than AQI. A very different animal indeed

    Disagree with you there my brother. Iraq wanted us gone and got all they bargained for. Im a big fan of leaving unappreciative countries hanging out to dry. Iraq swore the western infidels were to blame for all their problems and we were doing nothing to help. I think they see that was a misguided train of thought.

    He pulled out way to early. it wasn't a responsible withdrawal.
    Holy crap, the Rev is back. You may have come back a while ago but I just started posting again after not having access. I was going to disagree with you but I'll just say welcome back and glad to see you posting again.

    Actually... that's what kept ISIS from coming into Iraq.

    That's what created fertile ground for ISI and merely delayed the inevitable.

    Obama's got so many things I'd pile on him about. Seriously. The TPP, taking Bush's patriot act to yet another level on whistle blowers, his absurd deportation stance, his rather laissez faire oversight on fracking... These right wing partisan sycophants in here choose to attack him on such fabricated BS I end up looking like I think Obama's perfect simply because I don't jump on board the "I hate Obama" train with them.

    I can't for the life of me figure out why people make crap up out of thin air to whine about when there are factual things to bring up.

    Looks more to me like the power vacuum by Saddam's absence. Just like when that dictator Tito died in Yugoslavia and then Christians and Muslims were at each others throats from that point on. I find dictatorship nothing I want a part of but an iron fist seems to be all that a region has from tearing itself apart sometimes. Especially when it's overrun by religious fanatics.
