The U.N. is trying to play God with the world and I find that repugnant.
The country is already split roughly along sectarian lines moron__have you been asleep?

Except in and around Baghdad where Sunni's and Shia mix but the Shia form the overwhelming majority. Sadr City alone is home to 2.5 million Shiite's.who would slaughter and barbecue the piddly forces of ISIS.

Maliki is clearly a part of the problem there and should be forced to step down. The other problem is here and forced to do the same.
Maliki won elections, so a commie like you wants them to step down??

What happened to your defense of the Iraq democracy??

Maliki was hand picked by Bush to run Iraq. Now you turn on him??

Typical of Lorac.

You still don't get it, you clueless twit? It wasn't up to The US or Obama, it was up to the Iraqi government to sign off on a SOFA and it was they who rejected it because the Iraqi people didn't want American forces in their country.
And in case you missed it dimwit, Iraq is a sovereign country and we can't even overfly it let alone drop bombs unless military help is requested by their government.
And just where do you think these American aircraft would have suddenly come from STUPID? Bush withdrew our air assets from Saudi Arabia in 2003 and flights from Turkey on a path to intercept ISIS forces would mean overflying Syria which has some serious anti aircraft systems that they got from Russia.
You really lack the ability to think things through don't you? You've been demonstrating that on a daily basis.
You must not understand geopolitics and the art of negotiating to protect one's interests especially when negotiating with a potentially dangerous foe.

But neither does Obama.

It takes a real leader who will flex his muscles to have some influence over the outcome if necessary

We don't have one of those either. Ours can barely pump 5 pound weights.

Obama waited for permission to protect our best interests. That's exactly what happened. Like it or not.

Hope that thrill up your leg was worth it when he announced he got us out of the wrong war.
Now we have a much worse situation to deal with.

Deception is only acceptable in the defense of the innocent.
A politician that lies!!

It was so stupid a question, only an idiot like you could answer it.
Bush pulled out because Iraq would not allow immunity for American forces. DUH
It's their country, you really think they couldn't apprehend Americans??
You are stupid enough to believe that.
""updated 10/22/2011 1:58:39 PM ET
""BAGHDAD — Iraq's prime minister said Saturday that U.S. troops are leaving Iraq after nearly nine years of war because Baghdad rejected American demands that any U.S. military forces to stay would have to be shielded from prosecution or lawsuits.
The comments by Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, made clear that it was Iraq who refused to let the U.S. military remain under the Americans' terms.
A day earlier, President Barack Obama had hailed the troops' withdrawal as the result of his commitment — promised shortly after taking office in 2009 — to end the war that he once described as "dumb."
"When the Americans asked for immunity, the Iraqi side answered that it was not possible," al-Maliki told reporters in Baghdad. "The discussions over the number of trainers and the place of training stopped. Now that the issue of immunity was decided and that no immunity to be given, the withdrawal has started.""
Only cowards run away from a threat.

You don't fold before you've had time to call the other guy's bluff.

Obama wanted permission to sit at the table - much less play his hand. He didn't even look at the cards.

"Prosecutors: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Part Of 'Criminal Scheme"

""Newly released documents show prosecutors are alleging Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of a nationwide "criminal scheme" to illegally coordinate with outside conservative groups.

The documents were filed as part of an ongoing lawsuit challenging the probe by the conservative group Wisconsin Club for Growth. They were ordered publicly released Thursday by a federal appeals court judge after prosecutors and the Wisconsin Club for Growth did not object.

One of the filings from prosecutors outlines previously unknown details about the investigation that began in 2012 as Walker was facing a recall election.

Prosecutors say Walker, his chief of staff and others who worked for him were discussing illegal coordination with a number of national groups and prominent figures, including GOP strategist Karl Rove.

That's two of the 2016 Repugnants under investigation, Walker and Christie. No Democrats under investigation.

Meanwhile, Repugnant passed laws against same sex marriage are being found UNCONSTITUTIONAL nationwide.

Why is it Repugnants hate the Constitution so much??

For a pansy who never served her country, you sure talk tough.

You sending your daughter over to Iraq with the American forces you so dearly want to see die??

You're nothing but a fraud, Lorac. Not a service member in your family, not you, nor hubby, nor daughter.

So how is someone so cowardly so willing to send other folks kids to their deaths in a useless cause??

Answer that,you pansy.

Hillary has her problems and you acting like an ostrich and lamely thinking you can attack others who are critical of her behaviors is doing anything of value is truly lame.

So why did Bush sign th eagreement withdrawing our troops??

You calling Bush a coward?? He's th eone who wouldn't stay when Maliki wouldn't agree to immunity.

Have you ever read the S.O.F.A. with Iraq??

You talk like you're completely unaware of it. Everything that has happened was in the agreement signed by Bush in 2008.

Are you being stupid because your blood sugar is low?? Or just your natural ignorance??

Go have a cigarette, blow smoke out of your ears (and butt).

So you want American soldiers there to fight to "save " cities like Mosul and Fallujah that the Iraqi's won't even fight for?
To what end? TThis is a sectarian civil war.. who are we to take sides? ISIS has no intention of attacking America, you idiot.
