    Obama's Iraq would never have been invaded and Saddam would have made sure no extremist religious cult like ISIS had a chance in Iraq.
    Now back to Bush's Iraq.............Where something is finally working since Bush's stooge Maliki got ousted. The Sunni's are fighting back and Bagdad is helping give out our arms to them. The Generals have said that ISIS is "demoralized" by the airstrikes. When something works you double down. I'm sorry you are disappointed that we are winning. I know you were rooting for ISIS, it appears most Conservatives are.

    Naive? Yes. Note the comment about "complex" operations. Hell...we might already have (and if we don't and we keep doing the air campaign we will most assuredly GET) forward air controllers on the ground for CAS.

    They carry guns. They have a good chance of actual fighting.

    I tbink conservatives, like most Americans, are ready to just let the nation fall to whoever. We are tired of caring. We just want to be done with it.

    So its a giant just of "well maybe"? Id rather not base it around of "well it could happen" when in fact its not happening.
