    Re: Back to Iraq?

    I would have never guessed that a mere 13 years after 9/11 that Americans would have not only forgotten the impact of that day, but would actually sit by as the exact people who WILL attack us here established a state in the ME.

    Obama has squandered our gains in Iraq, and by giving deadlines merely told the terrorists "tough it out until that time, and then its yours". He's doing nearly the same thing in Afghanistan. Actions which only embolden these terrorists, and which compel locals to make peace with them so as to avoid ending up in a ditch. 5 minutes on live leak or youtube will demonstrate the reality for those who oppose the caliphate.

    His actions spit on the Americans who died defending this nation, and many times that number will die in those nations as Islamists shoot people for smoking cigarettes or sending little girls to school. Of course it wouldn't be the first time the dems cause us to lose a war. Politics trumps American lives to them.

    And then there are the Americans here and abroad who will be killed in terrorist attacks. At the same times, our geopolitical adversaries like Iran (the largest state sponsor of terrorism) and Russia now stand to gain even more influence in the region, leading to further instability.

    When you look at the ME, you are seeing back in time-to a much more brutal culture which is almost incomprehensible to the west. These people understand and respect one thing-force. Thats what they understand, so thats how they need to be addressed.

    No, that will keep the air cleaner and not have us involved continuously in an area of the world that has been feuding with each other for 1000 years. They don't want our ways or our interference, and we don't need to waste anymore lives or valuable resources to secure an outdated energy supply. If we leave there completely and have little to do with them, over time, they'll have no real interests or reasons to attack us.

    So you're plan will not keep terrorist from attacking us. Thank you.

    The rest of your post is meaningless. You solved nothing regarding terrorist attacking us. Do you not know these terrorist have an ideology that has noting to do with our use of oil or any other supply of our energy. This thread has nothing to do with our clean air act. Nothing.

    I tend to agree, but might be ok with the minimalist approach. But I fully reject going back in with ground troops. And drones worry me as they are not as surgical as needed.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    if we stop relying on oil as our primary transportation fuel, that will do a lot to defund it.
