    And why would we destroy Assad's government?

    Again... more U.S. Meddling in foreign affairs.

    True. But stability needs some help to get started and take a strong root. It would appears to me that the US forces there would have provided this needed support. I think support was withdrawn too early, and the patient is in jeopardy now, and may not have been, had the support been maintained. But we'll never know.

    Greetings, Travis007.

    Yep, that aspirin factory was a real threat to the world and just had to be bombed! Can you imagine all those people standing around saying "WTH is going on now?"

    2003 to 2011 wasn't long enough?

    Im not interested in a "forever war" in a country we had no business invading in the first place.

    And I say this as an Iraq war veteran.

    You must be the only one that thinks invading Iraq and creating Al Qaeda in Iraq/ISIS has made us safer.

    So how did a "Republican War" make us less safe? Are we less safe now than on 9/10/2001?

    The 9/11 attackers came the US and learned to fly commercial airliners under the Clinton presidency... is that the fault of Republicans?

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
