    Really? "Several people"? As far as I can tell the only person doing that current has been myself, while the rest who have kept active on this thread you, US Con, Grant and others have been focused on "ITS ALL BO's FAULT!".



    "All available means"? So, continuous, just about never ending occupation and war. Sounds like the military industrial complex is in for a big time $$$ maker.


    The point was.....the one link pointed out other Sunni Arabs had or were making attacks. Which the Baathist were against the US and Iraqi government.

    Assad was fighting the Syrian Rebels and we do have the threads up on what was taking place. He rarely was going after AQ of Iraq.

    Yes Really.....as the Narrative of going back to Bush. Doesn't relate. Nor does the excuses over BO's Foreign Policy. Are you trying to State that both of BO's S.O.Ds got it wrong with what they told the Entire country? Why is it no Foreign Policy experts carry the narrative......like you do. Looking for any excuse, any technicality, and trying to Blame Bush for AQ being back in Iraq......after being driven out or their so called retreating.


    So Continuous?????? Not when.....one offers the poor in that region a way out poverty, as one of those means and ways.

    Yes they will, our POTUS sees no problem with that. However, he knows he will be out of office before they announce they do. Wish I could say I expected more from him.

    It is a little disconcerting. He is certainly, or seems to be, on the right track, when he wants our allies, the less reliable ones like Germany, to shoulder their fair share of the hard and soft costs of international security making. But the travers to a world, where that works, is rather danger fraught and in cases like Iran the danger of getting it wrong is large and potentially existential.

    And you would be incorrect. To save bandwidth and me having to type away on my phone I suggest you read this instead. Very informative and in line with what the we are being briefed regarding the motivation and idealism surrounding these guys.

    So it gets to be Obama's fault forever, but Bush's fault ended in 2009?

    Possibly. Was there really a way to stop it from happening without going to war, and if not, why did Bush invade Iraq and not Iran?

    By talking to Iran, Obama has done more to stop it than Bush did. All Bush did was wag his finger at them.

    I will ask you the same question: If we knew Iran was researching nuclear weapons (which we did), and there's no way to stop it short of military action (debateable, but since that's the usual conservative response, I'll give it to you), why invade Iraq instead of Iran? It would seem to me that Iran was a much bigger threat to security than Saddam was in his wildest dreams.
