Afghanistan, not Iraq, is becoming another Vietnam - an unwinnable war.

The Iraq War ended before Obama took office.

Some people get so confused.

Why Hillary Clinton might not win in 2016

Chuck Todd takes a "Deep Dive" look into how some think Hillary Clinton's legacy won’t protect her and automatically make her a frontrunner if she runs for president in 2016.

Even if Clinton decides to run - she will be in her late 60s by the 2016 election cycle - her various failures as Secretary of States, Benghazi chief among them, will rise up to haunt her. Unfortunately she has a record and it is not an altogether good one.

Democrats, it is asserted, like to go with the fresh, new face that is long on charisma and short of ability. Obama is a prime example of that.

Diligence, as Barack Obama has taught us, does not guarantee success. Getting results and performing when it counts — as Obama also teaches — are what matters in politics. And results are what Clinton doesn’t get, and probably won’t get in 2016.

Do we actually pay big salaries to the drones at the CBO to state the obvious.?

Plus, the American workers who will see their wages lowered will be primarily black and Hispanic.

We have already surrender and now Obama wants Peace Talks with the Taliban to make it more embarrassing.

We would be better off exploding what we can't take and leave.

Peace talks with the Taliban. Might as well kiss a hungry lion on the lips. You're a fool either way.

Obama is constantly busy fundraising rather than governing or addressing critical problems.

Why? Where is the money going?

Only a fool would think it's for Hillary.

Some won't believe until they see it in print. While others like Progressives won't believe anything they don't find on their selected sites.

But, yes it is very obvious this will happen and who the victims of this will be.

Just like Obama.
Change the subject, wag the dog in Syria, instead of facing up to real issues.
I see no foot soldiers son. I see no tanks. I see no basing of the AF in a nearby country.

So it seems a lot better no matter what you claim.
