Obama did not campaing on ending both wars.
i agree that Ira may split into separate states. did you know that Gertrude Stein played a major role in forming the current state of Iraq? it certainly wasn't the people of the area that decided to form those borders...
Dr. Robert Kaplan's book "The Arabists" gives a great history of this area.(ps, read anything he writes...)
I stand corrected. No, I did not know that about Gertrude Stein. You would think we would learn a lesson about the Middle East. Leave them alone to work out their differences. Look what happened when Britain stepped in to divide Palestine! It's insanity to interfere. We always end up the loser.

Reynolds High School gunman Jared Michael Padgett had written about a plan to kill his classmates in a journal confiscated by detectives during a search of his father's home, a source close to the investigation said.

Investigators found the journal Tuesday night, hours after the 15-year-old freshman carried an AR-15 rifle in a guitar case on the school bus to Reynolds and used it to kill a 14-year-old student, wound a teacher, then turned it on himself that morning.

Once again Carol you're demonstrating you ignorance of the situation in the Middle East especially Afghanistan.
The individuals being released are not Al Qaeda but Taliban and the only reason they're attacking our troops is because they consider us to be invaders in their country. Contrary to your thinking the presence of our troops in Afghanistan has been used as an effective terrorist recruiting tool.
If there is any plotting by Al Qaeda to stage another 9/11 our troop presence will not stop it since they're ensconced in other areas like Yemen, Nigeria and North Africa. Al-Qaida in Iraq is also a problem but one caused by Bush's ill advised invasion of that country.
Because they've been so dispersed it's unlikely that another attack on the scale of the 9/11 attacks can be replicated.
Now of you ID-EE-Yuts, would just ADMIT..the Real TRUTH...

Like what is talked about in the article posted below....

"Conflict in Iraq Follows CENTURIES of Shiite-Sunni Mistrust"

< http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/iraq-turmoil... )

Rather than continuall and ever so IGNORANTLY blaming Any U.S. POTUS ((even more so abjectly IGNORANT..blaming former POTUS's)) for Problems in Other countries that existed for CENTURIES (if not Milleniums)...
We might get some where...like focusing on fixing the issues and problems that exist in our OWN country again, for a dotdamn CHANGE.

Gaw....some duh libuhrulTic tweehuggers types sometimes .... "so damn stupid!"

well, the colonial powers have been doing that for centuries. a new book is out now about lawrence of arabia, one of his greatest dilemmas was that he knew britain and france were not planning on honoring their bargain with egypt and wanted to divide it up as well as the rest of arabia into their territories as usual...interesting read.

Maybe the parents of these teenaged killers should be charged with providing a weapon. Maybe then these parents will wake up and pay attention.

Waxman only brings Floriduh out when things are really desperate for him and he's really drunk..........then out comes the idiot bastard son, Floriduh!!

In this case, the debacle that Bush created in Iraq has caused Waxman to go on a weekend bender.
