    Re: Cheney rips Obama over foreign policy in op-ed

    Amazing how many people seem to think that if the U.S. had not invaded Iraq that everything would be wonderful in the Middle East today.

    Have they forgotten

    1) Saddam Hussein was responsible for the deaths of nearly TWO MILLION people (and yeah, I can provide a source on that)
    2) Saddam Hussein had invaded two of his neighbors and launched ballistic missiles into four of them.
    3) Saddam Hussein required near continuous U.S. patrolling to contain for TWELVE years

    Plus

    4) Saddam Hussein required at least three significant U.S. bombing campaigns in the 1990s to "contain".

    5) Saddam Hussein continually attacked the Kurds in the north and the Shi'ites in the south of Iraq requiring the U.S. and British to provide near constant no fly zone protection.

    How is that "stability"?

    I'm too classy to go after Obama's kids, so I'll let the comments about Cheney's family stand on their own merits.
    Certainly the biggest loser since George W Bush and Dick Cheney..

    Yea yea yea we have heard all that before . The fact is that Iraqi's were better off under Sadaam and they hate us more than ever. Invading Iraq and killing Sadaam created ISIS which is much worse.

    I've said it before and no doubt I will have to say it again ...
    Saddam was an asshole and he was our asshole.
    The US put he and his party in power.

    You have to love the irony of that first line..Seriously Dick, just STFU and go shoot some more friends and take your skanky daughter with you.
    People think Cheney is an idiot than what is Obama....

    I predicted this "early pullout" since the war started - you're going to see anarchy in the Middle East.

    It's irrelevant weather or not who started the war (which was both democrats and republicans) however to play the blame game is absolutely irrelevant -- there is certainly a problem and it needs to be dealt with.

    We are really dealing with Sharia Psychopaths....... We really need to forget politics and ideology and stop this insanity otherwise we will have basically anarchy...

    Obama want's to really do nothing because he's not capable of doing anything because he lacks the balls - and generally the geopolitical authority/knowledge, which is why these "vigilantes" are so comfortable..... These individuals (including our own government) are a serious threat to US security and economy.

    This ****ing idiot was only elected for individual selfish reasons/political reasons....

    Saddam didn't "invade" Iraq - It was a coupe ...... Republicans and Democrats don't understand that..

    Anyone who actually blames "Saddam" of invading Iraq will lose - or even makes that claim that Saddam did. That is basic historic ignorance.

    This **** happened 20 years before I was born..... Republicans are dead - Libertarians are taking over now.

    Democrats will continually repeat the same nonsense but the truth is my generation will either buy it or calls bull**** because they know and are educated.

    It's only a matter of time before the Tea Party/Libertarians takes over.
