    Sigh, Obama is perfect!

    since we're blaming people dead for over a ****ing decade, how about Obama's tramp of a father? He's the one sewed the seed and abandoned it to a crazy woman and doddering grandparents....

    He's responsible for Obama's emotional issues that got us into this
    Oh, this post is too funky to even touch.

    Correction-the left can't beat them. I think most lefties must have some French in them, because they are so eager to surrender.

    We destabilized Iraq in 2003. We have a responsibility to that nation, and leaving them to the ISIS wolves for Obama's personal political benefit is not an example of that. The left loses wars like its cool.

    Isolationism, incidentally isn't in our own best interests. Weve already learned this the hard way.
    Isolationism is a hallmark of the 20th century GOP.
    Not to mention the current one, with Libertarians and TEAts .

    There are many Americans and other westerners who have gone there to fight against ISIS.

    I'm glad to see that you've finally owned 2003 as the date the USA destabilized Iraq.
    Now is the time for the GOP to step out of the way and let 'No Drama Obama' finish what he inherited .

    Nixon was quite effective in Vietnam, the left lost the peace there as it apparently likes to do. And we can't forget the cold war.

    Ah yes, walk on eggshells for ever to appease evil. Peace at that cost is no peace at all. Courage, man-try to show some.

    Things got better when we committed after the surge. They got worse after Obama tucked tail and fled.

    They (Iraqis) have the best government that America picked and supported by America and other countries for them, which, in American history has always been bad choices. At one time, America supported Saddam Hussien, that didn't go well either.

    America needs to get out of the business of being a world police force and hand picking foreign country leaders. We have a seriously flawed foreign policy.
