ISIS came to rise only after the power vacuum when the Status of Forces agreement between the US and Iraq wasn't achieved and the retreat of the incompetent and politically appointed leaders of the Iraqi security forces.

    Had the Status of Forces agreement been achieved, and US forces left in Iraq, likely that the Iraqi based ISIS wouldn't have taken as much land or forces as they ended up taking.

    I could be anyone not associated with the left. Hard to tell. The articles I read don't specify.

    Oh please. I said the "right wing" because that's the way news gets reported. It didn't qualify it by stating "some", "many", "a few", one thousand, etc. What I did not say was "ALL" the right wing. Now, one of your libertarian friends here made this statement;

    Almost everyone, Democrat or Republican.......
    That qualifies the statement to mean over 75% (+/-) which is blatantly misleading as no proof was offered.

    Get used to the fact that when using English in the vernacular, it is perfectly acceptable to be vague when the exact amount of anything, is unknown.

    You are right about one thing-lefty talk is quite cheap. Dont you have a UN resolution to push?
    So you don't have an answer? Why should we keep fighting their wars for them? Bush spent billions training and equipping the Iraqi's and for what? The Saudi's have the largest army in the ME and ISIS is after them but you want to send our men instead. When will we learn?

    I think it was fair to ask you to name a few members of the "right" that you are referring to. Surely you could do that easily since it was you that made the claim.

    "Vague" is putting it mildly when discussing your claims.

    ISIS had its start in Syria, how would us staying in Iraq prevented that? We were told that Bush left a stable Iraq under Maliki are you saying he lied?
