    Nah - it's called a faux pas.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hindsight? You mean forsight. The article I reference is from 2006, I've been suggesting it's coming to fruition exactly as they planned. I didn't forsee obama helping them via the arab spring, but the timeline, is spot on.

    So in other words, we did increase aid to Iraq.

    We kept to the same quota that was agreed upon by contract......but he did give a lil aid. Nothing where Maliki could use it against Sunni and it not be noticed. Also.....after the fact of ISIS becoming more of problem due to BO's lack of motivation. Which says nothing for BO knowing about them becoming a problem long before Dec of 2013.


    Did you look up some of the older threads on the Issue of Lebanon and that front for ISIS?

    So what about Iraq's request for at least 10,000 troops which Obama denied?

    These pathetic wormy attempts to re-write what happened under Obama by citing what happened under Bush is still bull**** no matter how you want to cut the fart.

    If getting informed is what you propagandists shovel in the name of preserving the myth that Obama actually didn't destroy something he touched then ignorance is bliss.

    Go shovel this crap elsewhere

    Huh.
    Odd how that decision came just after the election, eh?


    Yeah. I suspect that might not be a coincidence.

    The world (Including the USA.) has to do something about ISIS, but I sure hope that this ends up better than what Vietnam did. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed.

    Are pointless. You brought up bush telling us what we shouldn't have done. Reminds of the captain obvious episodes from South Park.
    simply voicing my opinion.

    Ok. So you agree that the pull out should have been done and do you believe we should just let Isis sit? How do you feel about the 1500 troops?
    I think we should pulled out a long long time ago. I dont think we should send more troops (i dont think we should send any troops).
