    ISIS wasn't a state until Obama. Bush isnt the current POTUS. Should we blame Clinton?
    You are accepting ISIS as a state?

    This is that dancing I was talking about. Its an intellectually lazy strawman. I didn't say there were no terrorists under bush (<---strawman), I said ISIS flourished under Obama.

    Can you at least agree that ISIS has flourished under Obama?

    You don't need to agree with the invasion of Iraq to understand that 2 decades of genocide and institutionalized rape obliterates a nation's social capital and leaves a social power vacuum far more important than containing the inevitable meltdown with brutal oppression.

    The problem with men of straw is they are easy to destroy.

    Obama wanted the job and he got it. There is no excuse for poor leadership the Obama administration has provided by ignoring the known IS problem until it became unmanageable for him.

    That's just one reason Dems were voted out of office overwhelmingly on Tuesday.

    Or it would be a lot different if we didnt proceed in "debaathification" of the entire state, and backed someone who rejected 37% of the countries population.

    "Intellectually lazy" yet you deny that wars dont have lasting affects and only blame one side of the same problem because they have a "D" next to their name

    But you didnt. Posting a giant image is not debunking anything.
