    Moon, you're a terrible person because you didn't invest in Apple when it was just created. We know now it was balls to the walls an awesome investment, but despite the fact you didn't know it and there was no way you could have ever known it, it's still your fault! /S

    Anyways, everyone knows Clinton didn't bomb OBL in Sudan because the intel was shaky at best and bombing a country is technically an act of war.

    We need to not give them a base, and then maintain a presence so they can't come back in. Thats all we need to do-exactly what Obama's generals and the Iraqi military TOLD Obama before he pulled out for politics.
    Maliki caused the surrender of most of the territory lost to ISIS in Iraq. During the "awakening", the Iraqi's threw them out when they thought there would be equal representation for Sunni's in Bagdad. When Malaki purged the Sunni's from Parliament, ISIS was welcomed back. Bush blew it when he picked Maliki and signed the agreement to withdraw. It left Obama with no choice but to leave when asked to. At least now the situation has forced Maliki out of power and there is a hope for Iraqi unity. The problem with spoon feeding is that you can never stop without a mess occurring. The Iraqi's must learn to feed themselves sometime.

    I didnt vote.

    My answer would be no, it's not a moral responsibility but unfortunately it is our business and affects our security...and possibly, again, the lives of our service people.
