    Is Obama right to go back into Iraq?


    We should stay the **** out of Iraq. There are innocent people all over the world being mistreated or murdered by evil sub-human scum. No Iraqi or any other foreigner is worth spending American lives and money on. Our policy should be is if someone ****s with us we bomb the living **** out of them and we do not rebuild that country we bombed, nor do we send aid of any kind. Besides I do not know about you but Obama is the last person who should be in charge of the military. Almost every right winger including myself said if you leave before the job is done the terrorists are just going to take control and we will be right back in Iraq.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Honestly, I no longer see any difference between Obama and Dubya. Remember at the end of Animal Farm in which the pigs and humans get drunk and celebrate and the other animals can no longer tell which one is human and which is a pig? Thats what Im feeling now.

    Re: Is Obama right to go back into Iraq?

    The only wars that make things better are the wars that were worth fighting. Everything else just causes more chaos. We took Iraq from a stable, albeit cruel dictatorship, and turned it into a weak, neutered pseudo-democracy that has no ability (or will) to control the violence within its own borders.

    We should have never gone in there in the first place and I DO blame Bush for that. However, that ship has already sailed and now that we've turned that country upside down we need to do whats right and fight the fight that is worth fighting. ISIS is horrible and they are only there doing the things they do because we gave them that opportunity. We need to eliminate them.

    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    NO-'After almost 12 years in Iraq, it's past time to get out and stay the hell out, we should have never have been there in the first place, you broke it you bought it, remember??

    There's too many other more important issues in the USA to address, like our eroding infrastructure..

    But at this point It doesn't matter what Obama does, the clowns and whack jobs on the right will find, a way to criticize Obama for going back in...

Obama is one of the only people in the world right now who has access to those means.
    US meddling created the ISIS situation. US meddling has always made things worse, especially in regards to the Middle East, and this time it's no different.

    ^this. I couldn't have said it better.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Sadly, I don't think Obama has any choice but to go back.
