    I suppose the question is how much longer can the democratically government of Iraq that we nation built last?

    I seen something similar before. I was in Vietnam during the Eastertide Offensive of 1972 and watched the South Vietnamese units that still had American advisors fight like heck and eventually drive the North Vietnamese back. Then with JUSMAGTHAI in Bangkok I watched these same units that had fought so good, An Loc being a prime example basically do what the Iraqi’s did, throw down their weapon and run like heck. Because of this I wonder if we still had an adviser with the Iraqi’s in Mosel, what would have happened. Now it isn't a matter of training, when I left Vietnam in March of 1973, those units were well trained. I am sure when we pulled out of Iraq a couple of years ago, the same was true.

    So what makes the same troops fight like heck when our adviser is with them and not without them? Moral perhaps, I don’t know. I do hope this is where the similarities end, but I am fearful that is not the case.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Give control in America to liberals...and this is what you get.

    No surprise here.

    I bet Maliki is regretting the hell out of demanding we get out of Iraq.

    Since Obama has no idea what to do in regards to the ME, he should do the only smart thing he CAN do: DIP all American-made equipment he can get access to, evacuate all US Military and any American civilians who want to go from the region, and tell everyone in the ME that they are on their own.

    THAT would be a hoot to witness...from a healthy distance.

    This is precisely why we shouldn't be arming countries like this in the M.E.
