    So now we this new offshoot of some old offshoot of Islamic terror and he's afraid to call it Islamic terror...

    So tell me, we have Obama at the other end of the ice and all this hand wringing and the highest paid players, and me and my hockey team at this end....

    .....are we going to respect him as an opponent?

    **** no.....
    He can't call it, "Islamic terror", because to do so would be an admission that it isn't all America's fault.

    I suspect there are darker reasons why this sudden shift to not identify what has been identified for 15 years.

    Obama is nothing is he is not underhanded and dishonest

    He sees the jihadists as freedom fighters, not terrorists

    You don't seem to understand.

    There isn't a "war" for us. This is up to Iraq.

    We have to stop being the world police. Putting our assets and lives on the line for other people... and for what?

    What is there to gain from this? Iraq will never be an "Ally" in the typical sense of the word.

    That area of the world is too confused right now to have a permanent identity.....

    There is a difference between not caring and not being able.

    I don't give a **** what you think Obama wants to do.

    I think about America. America is NOT Obama... Or Bush.... or Clinton.

    All your partisan hackery in this thread is lost on me... Im not going to sit here and bitch back and forth between "Well Obama did this and Bush did that and wah wah wah" like you petty mongrels.

    Regardless of who the President happens to be at the time.... America should not be meddling in the affairs of Middle Eastern nations. Period.

    You fight wars to win them, not to fit a calendar.
    And what grand prize does one win for meddling in the affairs of the Middle East?
