    So you feel Iraq is in the same situation now as it was in 2011, huh?

    It's one of the few things I agree with the GOP on. The invasion and occupation of Iraq was wrong, a mistake. That's what's written in history.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Interesting.

    And it makes me wonder if we'd have invaded if we knew the real nature of Islam then as some of us do now?

    That agreement gave President Limpwrist convenient cover for doing what he had wanted to do all along anyway--to withdraw all U.S. forces from Iraq. If he had left the sort of residual force military experts recommended at the time, roughly half the force the U.S. has maintained in South Korea for sixty years, with a somewhat different composition, what we are seeing in Iraq never could have happened.

    A few thousand savages with AK's, RPG's, pickup trucks, captured Humvees, machine guns, and a tank or artillery piece here and there they liked to parade around, moving in desert areas with no cover, would have been very quickly destroyed by a highly trained U.S. force with plenty of aircraft, armor, and artillery. If they had ever tried to mass enough to attack with much strength, they would have been annihilated, just like that large convoy of vehicles that was trying to get back to Iraq from Kuwait City. Knowing that, they probably would never even have dared try to expand from Syria into Iraq.

    Its because things are so good in this nation, and people so insulated from reality that they have no idea about the ideology they think they want.
