    We should never have gone there in the first place. But it was mission accomplished, whatever the **** that meant.
    Obama lied, innocent people died.

    You just keep those goalposts on wheels I suppose.

    What a joke.
    No, I'm addressing people who use, "kill other people's kids", argument to excuse inaction. The situation in the ME is only going to get worse. The longer we wait, the more people will die dealing with it. That's fine for those folks, because their kids won't ever be the ones dealing with it. Doing something now will save lives later.

What do you recommend we do about groups like the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda and DR Congo which have become ever more bold and dangerous? What should we do about the narcotics gangs in Mexico? They behead more people than ISIS, should we go into Mexico with boots on the ground? What about the drug cartels in Columbia? Depending on the year violence is either the number 1 or number 2 cause of death in Columbia so should we go in there? As a comparison violence still doesn't even make the top 20 causes of death in Iraq.

    Point being the world is still a place that has a lot of very dangerous groups in it, many of them of them so brutal they make ISIS practically look like peaceniks. So why do we need to significantly intervene in Iraq again but not these other places?

    Why do you want to "appease" the evil in all those other places then?

    Ah so accusations of racism-who saw that coming?
    I thought it was about oil?
    Or is it just about whatever is most politically convenient for you?
