    If we hadn't done what we did, according to you, then none of this would have happened. So if we had stayed out of world war two the Jews would have been slaughtered and today's problems would be very different.
    And they will tell you that things would have been worse without Obama's stimulus. Because they can see parallel time? No-because they say so.

    A number of Christian websources are corroborating some of the more grisly details of the story.

    I haven't been able to find much else, however. Is anyone aware of a better source on the subject?

    Frankly, regardless of whether this story is truly as horrible as is being claimed, I'm glad to see that we've finally taken action by authorizing airstrikes.
    That's fine, just don't mess with the oil market and 'Merica will let you be.

    It just never ends. Were the people better with Hussein?

    Muslims vs Christians. Sunnis vs Shiites. Kurds vs Isis.

    The only way we can stabilize the region is to have permanent street patrol with American soldiers on every block and we will still be hated.

    Yes, Saddam was a bad man, but he was a contained bad man that was no longer a threat to us, our allies, or even for the most part his own people (due to no fly zones). The question was then would going in and toppling him leave Iraq better than it was before. We know the answer to that now and many of us figured we knew what would happen then. The fact that some on the war mongering right still doesn't get it is no surprise to anyone. What would you have us do? Keep tens of thousands of American soldiers there for decades to come, and spend a hundred million dollars a year or more for decades to come, just so we can hold the mess together?
    Do you not know that after the fall of Saddam Hussein and the retirement of George Bush, Barrack Obama said Iraq was stable and Biden said Iraq was their greatest achievement? If they are telling the truth, how can you possibly claim that Iraq is now worse because of the Iraq war when, in the words of the President Obama just three years ago, it was 'stable'??

    When do you think we entered the middle east and why?

    Well we've been in and out of it pretty much since WW1 and largely for oil. Next question
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    You know the U.S. is not the only country in the world, other countries could have EASILY picked up the slack should they have chosen to do so. Good going on blaming Obama for EVERYTHING though.
