    They will attack the US and have said as much. I frankly expect that they have tried already, but we haven't heard about it. They certainly have the capability.

    You mean you're ignoring the part of your source which contradicts your argument? Again, knowing fully well that extraterritoriality is not something the US would have given up, would you say the Iraqis, by demanding exactly that, wanted to work with us? Your source says no. What do you say?

    My source states that Obama was offered alternatives that would have kept our troops protected and would bypass the legislature in Iraq. Obama chose not to accept. But in any case he could have stayed if he wanted to.

    The problem is that he's a weak chump easily swayed by politics.

    Do you not realize that your source also included the fact that no senior Iraqi official(that includes Maliki) was offering extraterritoriality? Do you want me to point out where your source says that again or not? Again, would you have wanted Obama to have given up extraterritoriality(meaning, letting Iraqi officials have jurisdiction over US troops?)? Yes or no answer.

    Neither you nor I are qualified to answer that question.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    There you are dropping extraterritoriality again. I just showed that Obama had options he didn't take. This wasn't some insurmountable task, it was a weak POTUS trying to get votes.

    Ah, so you're saying Obama should have taken the Iraqi stance on extraterritoriality yes? That was the issue they weren't budging on. That's why no agreement was reached. Should Obama have given it up? Yes or no?
