    With our money? Was that not exactly what Obama did when we left no troops in Iraq (but lots of US aid money) and are about to repeat in Afghanistan?

    Not opinions from some Neocon ignoramuses.

    Factual proof from unbiased sources?

    Aren't you glad your current President didn't go for this ?

    Yep, the ME was such a peaceful and kind place before that.

    Mr. Obama pledged 475 more boots tonite.
    in an instant tracking poll, these were his lowest numbers all night with Ds, Is and Rs.
    Yet FOX continues to post lying polls showing over 70% of Americans support these boots.

    What our soldiers will do is guard our interests, guard our own people, guide our bombing,
    train and coordinate their soldiers, and guard Iraqi and Syrian civilians in safe areas who ISIL has massacred .

    Bush handed Iraq on a silver platter to a terrorist and Iranian sympathizer and then signed an agreement with him to leave in 2011. Is that what you call victory? Is that what 60,000 Americans were killed or maimed for?
