    Re: CNN: 1,500 more troops to Iraq

    Serious question for those who say we pulled out too early and/or pulled out irresponsibly: When would be a good time? Or, phrased differently, do you honestly see a point where we would have ever "won" and thus been able to pull out responsibly?

    I don't. Maybe you do, and if so, please tell us how and when.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Its propaganda, as transparent as his waiting until after the election to announce an escalation.

    We have been bombing Iraq and Syria for months, and continue to increase the numbers of troops there. ISIS has attempted to attack the US, and our allies have committed to fighting ISIS.

    The question, is what to call this...is it still the Iraq war? Iraq war 3? The ISIS war?

    We call this failed foreign policy that hasn't changed in a long long time

    probably when it was likely that an islamic caliphate marauding through syria and iraq would be difficult to fathom. instead we supported the arab spring.... and got the troops out, giving the islamic fascists exactly what they wanted, and had planned for since 9/11
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    yes, it is Obama's Iraq, the world has been calling it that.

    He defined it when he pulled out to look good for 2012, he owned it when he mission creeped Libya and created ISIS, and he bought it when he decided he was going back in with this "no boots on the ground" limited engagement.....

    Classic Obama and his lame brained supporters to take six long years of lies and politicizing EVERY issue and insist Obama has had no effect. Unfortunately, his incompetence and making everything about his image is coming home to roost...it's payback time.

    This will go down in history as "Obama's war" and I believe stands a good chance of being Obama's Katrina.

    Of course he waited till after the election..everything with this guy is about his personal image...notice also its leaked on a Friday...
    Thats a good name, Obama's war. And the friday after an election is exactly when reality comes out of the Obama white house.

    Sure it is I'm guessing the parliament vote was "propaganda" as well.

    The Iraq of 2008 was much different than what we see today. And Obama has known and done nothing about ISIS for years.

    Or maybe when we realized we were trillions and trillions of dollars in debt and that we could never win this war.
