    The Military, and Romney, wanted 30,000 - 50,000 troops to remain while Obama want 3.000 to 5.000, which would only have put these people in harms way, just as he undermanned the troops in Afghanistan

    Americans elected Obama to bring our troops home. Perhaps you can get your Mounties over there to do what you think needs to be done.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    It got them little after the troops left and IS took over, but of course you claimed earlier that it never made an appearance there at all. The troops should have remained, just as they did in Europe and elsewhere following WWII.

    Democracies don't need troop enforcement. Thanks much for making my point.

    I do wish them luck, but you might need more.

    You made the claim earlier that Iraq was not a Democracy, then you said it was. Are you now claiming that Iraq was a well established democracy, like Germany, Japan, or South Korea and therefore could stand on its own???

    You feel the US will be disbanding their military any time soon?

    Wrong. I claimed that Iraq's "democracy" was/is a facade of such, and backed it up with the following, which is essentially no democracy at all.

    On the Democracy Index, Iraq ranks poorly. Of the 167 countries ranked for 2013, Iraq was classified as a “hybrid regime” (between a “flawed democracy” and an “authoritarian regime”) and came in at a ranking of 113. In 2013, according to Transparency International, Iraq ranked among the eight most corrupt nations and territories in the world*

    Laugh out loud.

    Is not 'Leading from behind' a cornerstone of the Obama foreign policy?

    The Obama doctrine: Leading from behind - The Washington Post

    Obama's 'lead from behind' security strategy will plague America for decades - LA Times

    Aren't we witnessing the results of this policy?
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    I think imperialism is a poor word for it. We aren't trying to annex anything. We're just playing planetary police force again. We need to stop it and take care of the homeland. I like the idea of the islamists killing each other. We should leave them alone and let them proceed.
