    I am fine letting it spread to all of the middle east. Getting us out is the best idea. I doubt they will ever attack us outside from small terror attacks, which we already have.
    But if we do go back, it has to be to end it.

    I definitely agree with that.

    I'm about the furthest thing from a war hawk... but how do you speak to people whose only language seems to be murder?

    What I said, was that Obama had other options to keep Iraq safe, and have demonstrated as much. And now terrorists flourish under Obama.

    I believe I recall Hamas going through this too. They are beloved in their region because they provide medical services and all other sorts of public services and when anyone else steps up to help the people, they step in and shut it down.

    Ah, he had other options, when your source states that no senior official in the Iraqi administration was willing to grant the US extraterritoriality. That's what you're saying yes? I'm waiting for you to realize the contradiction in that statement. Your source states that the US wasn't going to give up extraterritoriality. Then it states that no Iraqi was willing to grant it. Are you saying our option was to give it up and let Iraqi officials have jurisdiction over the actions of US troops?

    One last time, I said that Al Maliki and Iraq's ambassador asked Obama to approve an executive agreement allowing the US to keep its forces in Iraq. Obama said no, and lost the peace.

    And for the love of all that is decent and ****ing holy, the U.S. would not have been able to do so without giving up immunity.
