    Right, I just woke up this morning and formed my first ever position on the events of the last dozen years in the Middle East.

    Were they? Were they 'wrong'? Were they 'lying'? Or were things significantly better there and then they got completely ****ed by the typical amateur hour governance and foreign policy demonstrated by the administration? Every facet of the middle east has been mishandled by this current administration. The presidential limo is a clown car.

    Lying, wishful thinking, misinterpreting temporal events, I have no idea. Not sure what to make of the rest of your hyperbolic comments.

    Literally every decision Obama has made in Iraq has been the wrong one. Imagine that, an anti-war liberal college professor doesn't know how to win wars. Is it 2016 yet?
    What about 10 years and 100's of billions spent by GW Bush to train and equip the Iraqi's? Was that a success? Obama voted against invading Iraq.

    You think Joe Biden missed something in his 18 trips there? You think maybe he saw something you didn't? You think maybe you are invested in your rhetoric?

    When did Obama vote against Iraq?

    And how did the future Dem nominee vote?

    I think I clearly did not impute motives in my statement you quoted.

    The war in 2003 and the mess over there now is in Bush II's lap. It's all his.

    Funny thing too is as 2016 gets closer I'm betting Bush III(Jeb) will be more and more isolationist about Iraq then even Obama is. LOL.. Bush I and Bush II had wars there. I doubt Jeb wants to be known as the 3rd Bush president(if he wins) who got us into a war there. If he's the GOP nom he'll backpedal like crazy away from wanting boots on the ground in Iraq.

    Nope it was a failure (Im not a partisan hack like you) and Obama wasnt even in the Senate at the time to vote for the war. Talk about clueless.
