    Then yer not happy the GOP finally got another war in Iraq?
    A war that GOP/FOX has ginned up with the American people by shamelessly using the two beheadings.

    Maybe we should go back to the dozens of our Iraqi soldiers who were electrocuted in faulty Haliburton showers.

    He also said he would close GITMO and GOP senators filibustered the Defense bill until he relented.

    Bush screwed the pooch on the SOFA agreement no matter how many times a certain poster lies about it and you know it .

    So in other words, you will always rewrite history to slam DEM Presidents and uplift GOP ones.
    As you did when Reagan/Bush cut and ran after Beirut .

    The rest is history.

    I think we witnessed obama add another chapter to his glorious legacy. We experienced an obama who although is not a war hawk by any means express himself in a way that defines leadership. ISIS beware of the macho obama

    There's some chatter that his flag pin was off center. He may be sending a message to sleeper cells.

    Bush was able to put four CBG in the area in less than two weeks while three other CBG's were in their AOR's conducting other missions not related to China. That's seven carriers at sea on station. The Chinese put their saber in the scabbard and never rattled it again as long as Bush was in the White House.

    That's called having a big stick or speaking the talk and having the walk.

    Obama has problems just keeping two Carrier Strike Groups at sea.
    Given the ongoing cuts to the military, he'll soon be calling on the Girl Scouts.

    >" The seven aircraft carriers involved in Summer Pulse 04 will include: the Norfolk-based USS George Washington (CVN 73) CSG and the San Diego-based USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) CSG, both currently deployed, and Yokosuka, Japan-based USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63). The Mayport, Fla.-based USS John F Kennedy (CV 67) CSG will begin a combined and joint exercise early this month, followed by a scheduled overseas deployment. The Norfolk-based USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) CSG will conduct a scheduled training exercise followed by overseas pulse operations with the Norfolk-based USS Enterprise (CVN 65) CSG, beginning early this month. USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) will conduct operations in the U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Southern Command theaters during the ship's interfleet transfer from Norfolk, Va., to its Pacific Fleet homeport of San Diego.

    The near-simultaneous deployment of seven carrier strike groups provides the Navy and the joint combatant commanders an opportunity to exercise the FRP while maintaining the ability to respond to crises around the globe, enhance regional security and relationships, meet combatant commander requirements including forward presence, and demonstrate a commitment to allies and coalition partners. Summer Pulse 04 is scheduled to conclude in August...."<

    Carriers Surge During Summer Pulse '04

    >" The FRP is designed to allow the Navy to provide up to seven carrier strike groups (CSG) to support any contingency worldwide in 30 days. Per the plan, two more CSGs can be ready within three months to reinforce or rotate out the forces that initially deployed. This allows for a continuous presence and the ability to swiftly respond to different crisis situations."<

    You forget that Maliki is gone and there is a new govt. in Iraq, one that is not run by a sectarian terrorist Iranian sympathizer. Things are already getting better than when Bush left. Without an inclusive Govt. Iraq is doomed to eternal war.

    Your boy Bush gave us 4,500 "empty chairs" around the dinner tables of America,
    since you mention empty chairs and the empty-headed Eastwood, who Romney was thoroughly embarrassed by.

    Try a visit to any VA Hospital to see some of the tens of thousands of "full beds" occupied by our maimed Wounded Warroirs .
