    C'mon, use your "smart power" and explain this.

    I on the other hand put it back into its proper perspective.....and not only give the credit where it belongs. But focus on that credit and what else it has caused......now.
    Not at all. I place blame with jr. And Obama.

    In a way you do.....that can't be denied. But like I mentioned, you tend to equate some issues to Bush Jr. That just blew up exponentially under BO and has created more problems than what existed before. Worse than Bush faced or any other.

    No Arab leaders don't respect BO peep in general.....not over ISIS. Although, I can see how your mind would come up with such.

    Oh and you can't figure out why they do have to keep up appearances. Were you referring to their coalition for Air Strikes?

    Do you see the Saud, or any Arab Leaders putting troops on the ground in Iraq? How about Syria? Now what about Libya?

    Cmon lets see some of that Smart power of yours and explain how they are fighting ISIS?

    Well I agree, but I thought that that goes without saying. I blame the Islamic State (if indeed they were) attackers in Garland for shooting the security guard, and I blame Geller for her wreckless and irresponsible expression that drew them to her event.

    I've stated multiple times that Obama's Middle East policies have made matters worse, not better. And you know that. But that doesn't let Jr. off the hook for his failed policies. And that's where your patronising kicks in, and we differ.

    Well Jr didn't have much to do with ISIS nor Al Sham.....So when you try to put it on Jr. Its why I take it back to where the Problem had been festering all along. Which was before him. As your link showed.

    It was already acknowledged you would agree. Like I said.....you tend to fly over it quickly with that blame and try to take it back to your partisanship on Jr. Despite whether it has anything to do with him or not.

    You're dead wrong again. According to the NIE that was made public in 2006, Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq caused an increase in global terrorism, and made America less safe. But such is your partisan blindness, you reject the intelligence communities report, thinking that from your house in Chicago you've got a better handle on the situation. And the Islamic State in Iraq dates to 2006. I can't take you serious.

    Hussein was removed YEARS before we left Iraq. Why didnt ISIS explode on the scene then?

    Oh wait, they waited until we left prematurely....but what difference does it make? ISIS is still just a JV team, right?
