    Indeed and he should be commended for it. Hopefully our administration quits being butt hurt about the MB being ousted and begins to appreciate the bigger picture.

    That's PROOF because you say so? Obama lies and we all have proof of that. But I have not seen one shred of evidence that Bush lied about anything leading up to the Iraq war. I await your PROOF.

    Oh, you've seen it, you've just dismissed it.

    It is true that the invasion of Iraq was a goal from the start. It is not true that Cheney and Rumsfeld directed GWB. He was always firmly in charge, and a highly intelligent man -- Dem propaganda notwithstanding.

    the buck stops with the Bush administration on this one friend.


    The only country on this planet that gained anything from G.W.Bush's unnecessary war in Iraq (Which was no threat to the USA.) was Iran and they're mighty grateful to Bush for it.

    They certainly were a big benefactor, I don't know that they were the only one, but you may be right.

    I believe "beneficiary" was what you intended. In that thought the US is the benefactor.

These people have been killing each other long before the US was even a country, and while I hate to say it, they brought their troubles on themselves, all in the name of religion!

    It's interesting that Bush is meeting with Petraeus and others, but for what purpose? All of them are retired so what good does that do? Obama is going to do what he wants to do, and he is the CiC who owns this mess that he created. Do they really think that he'll take their advice if it is offered? Not much chance of that happening, IMO, because that would indicate he might not be handling the problems correctly himself, and that would never do - but meanwhile ISIL is thumbing their nose at him while they swagger, behead people, and laugh at him! So which is worse for a person with a big ego - listening to advice or being laughed at by inferior animals? Maybe toppling those dictators who had kept the lid on the ME pressure cooker wasn't the brightest thing to do after all, huh? Too late now - it's done and we see the results!

    If he had met with them BEFORE beginning this war, it would mean he is a leader and wants experienced advice.

    Now? PR
