    Now, I don't think I am very happy about the way American presence is developing there, but there is no question of broken sovereignty here. Iraq practically pleaded for help.

    Now they're asking for help, but when we pulled out they were asking for that. Staying at that point would have violated their sovereignty, and been against the wishes of the American people.

    Yes. The Iraqis were quite silly. But that was fine by me. But we absolutely should not make this an American problem. It is the neighborhood's and we can help.

    Government of the people by the people isn't only when Repubs win.
    So do these same people somehow want to go back into Iraq now?

    To have stayed without any agreement, or any request from Iraq would have violated their sovereignty. The goal of the war was not to create a sovereign Iraq, it was to create a subservient Iraq. All you need to see for that is the posts of you and other conservatives stating that Obama should have kept troops there against their wishes.

    Probably not. But the Dems just got handed a big loss at the polls, so there you go.

    I'd like to agree, but the problem is that the real power broker in that neighborhood is Iran. Personally, I say so what, but....

    Violated their sovereignty? What sovereignty? You don't recall the conditions applied after Desert Storm?

    Many American people were poorly informed about conditions in Iraq, it seems, but their leaders should have known better.

    Oh, poor Obama!

    Iraq was 'stable', the generals told him he should leave at least 24,000 troops behind, and he refused to listen.

    Now women are being sold, raped and murdered, men and boys being beheaded, families left dead and homeless and a murderous caliphate has taken root.

    Who do you think deserves responsibility for this disaster?
