    There are other factors at work in the Middle East that are not under US control, true. But I speak to what is. The Bush era NIE concludes that the US invasion and occupation of Iraq has caused a sharp increase in terrorism and made the US less safe. Argue with that if you will.

    Speaking to one set of issues, well does not address all the problems. It is like blaming Bob, but John who was equally or more so at fault gets a pass.

    Nope- because I missed mentioning them. Do you want a discussion or not.
    Back to you.

    That's why I'm here. Care to stop blaming everyone for terrorism, but the terrorists?

    That is an interesting question. ISIS formed in Syria as a result of their civil war. I don't think if Saddam was still there the Iraqi Army would have beat feet like they did. They would have stood and fought and most likely ISIS would have been driven back into Syria. It definitely would be a whole different ballgame.

    Getting rid of the competent leaders of Iraq's army in my opinion had more to do with today's situation than whether Saddam was still there or not. That coupled with Maliki's promoting his friends and fellow Shia, those loyal to him over competence. I think ISIS in Iraq has more to do with Maliki than whether or not Saddam was still around.

    I think I will go with other.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Actually thinking about this, I would add that ISIS would exist today whether Saddam was still there or not. But probably would be confined to Syria. They wouldn't be in Iraq, but they would be flexing their muscle in Syria and Libya and probably a couple of other countries.

    When have I ever not held them accountable.
    Now prove your claim.
    Or do you have the character to man up and say you made a mistake?
