    The war was absolutely winnable until it became politicized, something that's remarkably easy to do in much of the western world these days. The enemies were always out there, as we can see from 9/11 itself and other attacks, and because of the weakness of the media, and the left of course, the West has become far more vulnerable to further attacks. This is just the beginning of the real war now and America will have difficulty in responding.

    Anything you can do to blame the Bad Stuff on liberals, you will. Sad and pathetic partisan hackery.

    Are you going to continue to whine or try to prove me wrong? If you have nothing worthwhile to add, you should just move on. You actually epitomize liberals and it seems that you somehow sense that.

    I don't even know what the hell this means.

    It wasn't liberals who broke Iraq in the first place.

    Historians don't think that Mr. Bush was a good President. They have placed him in the bottom third of all American Presidents.

    " Historians " ?

    Damn how time flies.

    Bush was a Good presidential, but more importantly a Good man.

    A honest man and that's something that we're sorely missing now.

    From the IRS to Benghazi to Fast and Furious to Obama's payback for ths Southern States, one thing is certain.

    Character and integrity matters in a leader.

    How do you win a war with no defined enemy? We cannot possibly kill and capture ALL the terrorists. There are new ones born every day. In fact, I wonder if our actions might perhaps create even MORE terrorists?

    Historians? Bush is only out of office a very short while and is not yet to be judged by 'historians'.

    Our actions do create more terrorists when we inflict collateral damage to innocent lives with cruise missiles and drones, rather than using bullets against a seen enemy. Both Clinton and Obama seem to be doing their best to create terrorists.
    FYI: I just started adding people to my IGNORE list, so if I don't respond to you...
