    This thing is just getting started. I expect we will see boots on the ground and regime change. More American blood and treasure in Obamas war for oil. Obama the warmonger. Obama lied and people died.

    The UN started this one, not Obama. Wasn't he being criticised for not starting it in the first place anyway?

    No, it's an attack. Not war. With that logic, Israel was at war with the US when it attacked the USS Liberty during the Six Day War. You are either being disingenuous or purposefully obtuse to play a moronic semantic game that proves absolutely nothing. Good work!

    LMAO. Anyone who think America was at war with Iran during the Iran-Iraq War cannot be taken seriously. Anything they say is purely devoid of reality.

    He should've already had forces deployed to that region before any of the uprisings in the Middle East started. In fact, he should've done that before his presidency started.

    But that still won't please any conservatives.

    This thread is hilarious. It would be nice if the thread could at least half ass follow the title. That disappeared on the first page. It's been 17 pages of WW2, Pearl Harbor and Iraq war chat.

    But then again, the alert, aggressive, well-trained guy with the .38 snubbie has a good chance of killing the less-trained predator with a cutting-edge glock with all the bells and whistles.
    And, there it is. Leadership, discipline, technical and tactical ability are the things that win battles.
