    Now prove your claim.
    Or do you have the character to man up and say you made a mistake?
    The terrorists are 100% responsible, not The United States.

    Can you see that Iraq is now a client state of Iran?

    I'm not giving anybody a pass, did you see one. I'm just pointing out that our NIE concludes that what WE'RE doing, is exacerbating the problem, and that we're less safe for it. Now if you want to go have a summit with the other folks that you believe are contributing to the Islamic State problem, you have my support, knock yourself out.

    Was Iraq a client state of Iran when Hussein was there?

    Imagine that.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Except that they were Iraqi Sunni's who would have had no interest in anything but supporting their leader Saddam but noooo. Georgi boy Said Saddam's been a bad man. And he was, the question is was he that much "badder" then when this was taken? There is no wiggling out of it there would be no ISIS, no war in Syria and a much less radical ME had GW used his head instead of his butt. You need to come to grips with that. Bush was warned this would happen and laughed it off. Speaking of laughing, I wonder what those two are thinking?

    Of course they weren't, they were bitter enemies.
