    Exactly my freaking point!!!! We don't have a time machine. So there is no point in bringing up bush's failures when we are talking about obama's!! Saying "well bush started it" is like saying "the crusader's started it." It doesn't matter at this point.

    Fact is we should be dealing with why Obama has is not doing well. Not why bush is bad.

    Edit: sorry hit button too quick on phone:

    So tell me. Do you think Obama has done anything well in his 6 years with Iraq? Or do you think this whole mess should be left alone?

    Wait? So stating something that happened in the past that is part of the problem, "we shouldnt bring up"? Then you are only getting one side of the problem... You know "those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. "

    I've already answered this question, about 4 times now. I think we should of never invaded in the first place. I think we should of never debaathified the country. I think we should of pulled out from the get go, we have had no business being there. Yes Obama is to fault in this.

    So what.....the Order for the Helicopters and Hellfire Missiles goes back to the agreement we had before Maliki came to visit in Nov of 2013. Which BO was obligated to fulfill the order.

    Do you think we can tell by the weapons they carry? Do they have tats? What about by the clothes they wear?

    Do they advocate for a Caliphate?

    This is a lie, an outright lie.
    U.S.

    The U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement (official name: Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq) was a status of forces agreement (SOFA) between Iraq and the United States, signed by President George W. Bush in 2008.
    Get informed.

    You just said Iraq was peaceful in 2008, that's demonstrably false. Do you have anything else to add to your ridiculously false statement?

    Either go whole hog or don't go hog at all. Getting in and winning the dang thing as fast as possible with doing whatever it takes will save lives in the long run. Pussy footing around and lengthening this thing out will cause a whole lot of more lives than necessary. I repeat, either do what is necessary now or just stop the whole thing cold.
    Obama's foreign policy is called a QB sneak- he is thinking that by sending in a few thousand at a time he hopes the public wouldnt notice...
