    Really, liberalism created terrorism, that's a new one? Here I was with the rest of the world thinking Religious Fundamentalism and destabilization of an entire region contributed to terrorism.
    The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.

    There are dozens of things he could have done. Notifying the airlines about the pilot training that was discovered for one. Instead in his infinite wisdom, he "decided" that the threats were a hoax perpetrated by..wait for it...Saddam Hussein. How convenient and profoundly stupid is that?

    But, you're right. That's not where ISIS is based. Moreover, Egypt has a military of its own. Let's let them deal with the attack.

    As for the rest of my post, to wit:

    Iraq, Syria?

    Would you have Congress declare war on ISIS, then, and put the country on a war footing to go in and destroy them?

    Then, what about AlQaeda, Al Shabaab, and the Taliban? Would you have us go to destroy them as well?
    Should the US go play world cop eradicating evil all around the world?

    Would we be successful if we tried?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    You start a thread about an act that occurred in Egypt and then say this isn't about Egypt?

    Now, sure, we all know this thread is REALLY just about you hating liberals and playing your role as a right, proper warrior for the conservative cowboys against these big, bad liberal Indians, but if this isn't about Egypt, shouldn't we all just stop this thread right here and now and be done with it?

    What's next -- a thread about global warming that has nothing to do with global warming or a thread about abortion that has nothing to do with abortion?

    What is there to understand? Bush failed to get the long term agreement he desired and almost got kicked out in 2008. The Iraqi's had no real desire to renegotiate and held us to the letter of Bush's agreement. End of story.

    Signing a Status of Forces Agreement requiring the full withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq on a fixed three year timeline demonstrated a real flexibility on Bush’s part. It demonstrated a pragmatism and willingness to put the national interest ahead of partisanship that few of us believed he possessed. It is largely thanks to Bush’s acceptance of his own bargaining failure that Barack Obama will inherit a plausible route to successful disengagement from Iraq.

    Reality in your world is based upon personal feelings and biases, not reality. Failure to confront Terrorism in the 90's led to 9/11 and the U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Neither would have happened had this country been more proactive, regardless of the Religious fervor

    You mean the pilot training that occurred in 2000? You have no idea what Bush did or didn't do because you are blinded by your ideology and have been indoctrinated into believing what the liberals tell you. No one claimed the threat was a hoax and I am still waiting for you to explain why the Democrat Controlled Senate and Oversight Committee with the same access to intelligence as Bush authorized the war 76-23?

    Do you see a connection between the attack of 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    Yes, I prefer addressing the issue now and being proactive instead of waiting for another 9/11 or worse

    no, the thread was to address ISIS and their threat to the world evidenced by the attack in Egypt but like far too many bury your head and wait for something to happen here.
