    This isn't about politics. It will be his fault forever.

    Who do you think deserves responsibility for this disaster?

    So you are still upholding this view that "Iraq was stable" even tho it was clearly not?

    There is no evidence that would have happened at all. There are US troops based all over the world and they seldom get involved in local politics. Who really cares if Germany elects members of the Green Party, or Peru elects Conservatives The troops were all about protecting the hard won security and stability, not domestic politics.

    Obama said it was stable. If you want a debate, take it up with him, or write a letter to your Congressman.

    If Obama said so, with all the inside knowledge he has-why did it turn out so...unstable?

    Again for the third time (also interesting how "US Conservative" liked your comment but wont respond to mine): "Again I posted this earlier in response to US Conservative's quote: "The problem with this is you and many people here are thinking I am analyzing this as a Obama and Republican issue. I am not. I am saying this (ISIS being created, and the extreme destabilization in the region) is the result of a combination of factors, not just one man..."

    Whose idea was it to remove the troops? Who claimed credit and who went against the generals and the CIA's advice?

    There is only one person responsible.
