    The Pentagon had wanted the bases to help counter growing Iranian influence in the Middle East. Just a few years ago, the US had plans for leaving behind four large bases but, in the face of Iraqi resistance, this plan had to be scaled down this year to a force of 10,000. But even this proved too much for the Iraqis.
    The Iraqis didn't want it. We abided. What exactly is your problem?

    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
    Spare me the diatribe. You had absolutely no idea that Obama actually followed the previous administration's set strategy and are now complaining because he did.

    I agree that ISIS has developed and grown during the time that Obama was in office. The same could be said for every other world leader, currently serving, around the globe. To put as "under Obama," like he was their 5 star General or something is dishonest and misleading. It's warped.

    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).
    I agree. Just so long as you realize that means innocent people are GOING to die by Isis in horrific ways. I mean they are going to anyway, but we are gonna be killing Isis if we are there.

    Yes I realize this will happen. But are we going to "kill ISIS if we are there"? Arent the troops just there to train?

    Weren't our troops just advisers in Vietnam? They are gonna train them to kill Isis by killing Isis with them.

    Actually the aid didn't get there until 2014......which they also bought F16's. Delivery wasn't set until Sept of this year. Also from Feb to June Maliki and others in Iraq requested Air Strikes against ISIS. BO denied them.

    Re: CNN: 1,500 more troops to Iraq

    So you believe that after winning a war in an Iraq, losing all those people and spending all that money to make Iraq 'stable' and democratic, Maliki could just tell Obama to leave?

    Didn't Obama say he was going to pull the troops from Iraq during the election campaign? The fact is that it didn't matter what Maliki said. Maliki also had to play local politics and 'stand up' to the US and coalition. Now Obama is saying Maliki forced him?

    It is amazing that some people are still buying that excuse..
