    Expecting Obama to clean up this and eight years worth of catastrophic Bush/Cheney policies is GOP madness .
    Nimby, you tell me-does the buck stop with Obama or not?

    I take your point. But I feel one can hardly describe a situation in which "only" a few hundred people are killed per month as "peace". That being said, the situation is worse now. And for the record, Iraq has never known "peace" in its existence, long before the US came on the scene. Unless you consider the peace of the mass grave as some sort of "peace".

    Don't make a fool of yourself pls. You invaded Iraq for the wrong reasons, pulled out of Iraq, then got back in to create a mess once again.

    But now Obama has gone back in to bomb the crap out of the palace and that is not working. Obama pulled out all the troops then started sending them back in, plus a bunch of planes. If we're not the worlds police what the hell is he doing going back into Iraq. Why did he go into Libya.

We had been there for years, spent millions if not billions rebuilding the country, had a number of Americans' blood spilled, and now it's crumbling before us. We have a large, capable force of Muslim militants spreading like a plague across the Middle East, capturing territory and slaughtering non-believers left and right. They are radicalizing Westerners - more specifically, impressionable millennials - are well funded and are brutal. Was the withdrawal worth the possible consequences that may follow?
    We spent an average of 100 billion dollars a month for every month we were there. So yes, unless we wanted to spend 100 billion dollars a month there indefinitely, the withdrawal was worth it as it is saving American lives and 100 billion dollars a month.

    Moreover, this notion that if we had just left 10,000 troops or so there the country would be stable is ridiculous. We hardly kept the country stable when we had better than 150,000 men over there, the notion that we could keep the country safe and pacified with less than 10% of that is absurd.

    We created this mess when we went into Iraq and deposed the dictator Saddam. All we can do now is contain it.

    Running wars properly isn't something America has done well since like WW II. But Obama is a fan of bombing folk.
