    Isis was not yet formed to be formidable yet.

    Next if you wish to bring up or criticize my grammar - well piss off.

    Good now that this issue has been addressed we shall carry on with the discussion.

    Bush noted Saddam and AQ - Funding - do you believe that Saddam funded AQ?
    Amazing how Democrats thought so in 1998 with the Iraq Liberation Act and again in 2002 when they voted for the war. Doesn't really matter what I think but I do know that Saddam Funded terrorism.

    Went against the WH and Cheney line.
    His replacement was announced approx a tad over a year ahead of time.
    Effectively ending his carrier.

    Why was the surge needed?
    Refresh my memory who was that General?

    Why was the surge needed? Does it matter, it worked.

    Yep. US troops left before the job was finished. We had a "democracy" in Iraq, after all, and purple fingers to prove it. The problem was, radical Islam was still alive and well. We didn't know our enemy, didn't have a plan nor a will to win the war.

    And that is no way to run a war.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    I believe it must be the same part that they controlled before the US invasion.

    Its the mistakes of the Bush administration and their aftermath that was the catalyst for ISIS
