    I believe the liberation of Kuwait was a true coalition effort costs and all. It does not count as a US victory for that reason, there were many other nations involved.. Iraq 2 was simply a regime change from one sectarian dictator to another and Vietnam....was Nixon a Democrat?

    And how has that worked out? Things have gotten worse since we invaded a sovereign nation under false pretenses.

It was the request to dig into his laptop that was rejected by FISA.

    Your quote from Tenet would be what is called "Monday Morning Quarterbacking". That he considered a connection after the attack says nothing about the ability to actually investigate the case before the crime was committed. The special investigative powers needed to dig into Moussaoui's life would fall under the FISA, and FISA rejected their request.
    When the FBI went to the Flight school they found out that Moussaoui only wanted to learn to fly and turn wide body jets and no take-offs and landings. That is what set off the red flags. They did not need FISA to investigate other flight schools either.

    The "surge had nothing to do with the reduction in attacks, it was the "great awakening" of the Sunni tribes that rejected Al Qaeda and who were promised representation in the new Govt. which they never got. They are the same ones that allowed ISIS to take over much of their territory in Iraq after Maliki persecuted them. Bush's choice of Maliki was just one of a series of bad decisions that sealed Iraq's fate long before Obama had any say.
    And before you say Maliki was elected I will remind you that he was first vetted and approved by the CIA and GW himself. Malaiki was a Shia terrorist with close ties to Iran but Bush was desperate to find anyone who would take the job before his terms were over.

    The surest way out of these costly, elective wars is to re-institute the draft.

Let's do the warmonger math:

    1. Syria
    2. Libya
    3. Yemen
    4. Nigeria
    5. Iran (nuclear ambitions you know)
    6. Pakistan

    So we would have at least those countries for a start.
    ...and, of course, each war will result in a de-stabilized adjacent country that will also have to be attacked.

    I would remind you again of the billons and billions spent training and equipping the Iraqi army for 10 years prior only to have Maliki turn them into a sectarian hit squad for Iran that would not defend Sunni areas from ISIS. You can never explain away the huge blunders that followed the illegal invasion of Iraq. An invasion that was rushed for political reasons causing more US and Iraqi casualties, and worst of all was done without a plan for the aftermath. It was a operation born to fail and fail it did. It will go down in history as the worst (and most expensive) foreign policy blunder in modern times.

    Especially if we drafted by parents income and started in the top brackets.

    Of course it is our choice.

    If we packed up our **** and left......the middle east and quit meddling..... we keep our counter terrorist operations and intelligence gathering, and there isn't a damned thing they can do to us.

    If you think our military flexing some muscle and them spilling our blood in their backyard is preventing a terrorist attack, your deluded.
