Mr. Bush concluded that “withdrawal would have increased the probability that coalition troops would be forced to return to Iraq one day, and confront an enemy that is even more dangerous. Failure in Iraq should be unacceptable to the civilized world.”
The surge strategy worked. Violence was reduced dramatically in Iraq, and a stable, democratically elected government took power. When Mr. Bush left office in January 2009, he could rightly claim to have left Iraq in the win column. But five years and one U.S. troop pullout later, and the Obama administration’s failure in 2011 to conclude an agreement for a follow-on stabilization force, the dramatic rise of ISIS shows that Mr. Bush had a much better grasp on the strategic realities of Iraq and the war against violent extremism than his critics.
The possibility of a civil war always existed & made stronger by a non-inclusive Iraq government. ISIS would be nowhere ion Iraq if Iraq was a more united country that included Sunnis.

Remember when George W. Bush predicted exactly what would happen if we pulled troops from Iraq like Obama wanted?

In early 2007, then-Senator Barack Obama was pushing a plan to pull U.S. forces out of Iraq and abort the “surge” strategy that had yet to take hold and end the raging sectarian struggle. President George W. Bush believed that a precipitate U.S. troop pullout would lead to increased chaos, bloodshed, and eventual terrorist victories. Given the recent dramatic events in Iraq, it looks like Mr. Bush knew what he was talking about.
In January 2007, Senator Obama introduced S 433,“The Iraq War De-Escalation Act of 2007,” that would have prevented the troop surge and begun a year-long U.S. military withdrawal. This would, he believed,“pressure the Iraqis to finally reach a political settlement and reduce the violence.” Oddly enough, with Iraq now in turmoil Mr. Obama is saying the use of force to counter the ISIS offensive would be insufficient without some form of political settlement to reduce the violence, which was facilitated by the withdrawal of U.S. troops in the first place.
LISTEN to BuzzPo Radio: For Barack Obama, Bowe Bergdahl was the Perfect Soldier. Click PLAY to listen:
In the spring of 2007, Senator Hillary Clinton favored a 90 day timetable for “redeploying troops out of Iraq”— the expression Democrats had decided sounded better that withdrawing, retreating, bugging out, cutting and running, or surrendering. She was also pushing for a second war authorization vote, which would allow her to vote against the invasion she voted to authorize in 2002, a decision she was doggedly trying to explain away. Hard choices were fine, so long as she had an easy way out.
Meanwhile Senator Joe Biden was still pushing a nutty plan he had concocted a year earlier to divide Iraq into three countries — even though no Iraqis supported the idea, imposing it would have violated every norm of international law, and it would have led to a situation that would have looked a lot like what Iraq looks like right now.
Mr. Bush was busy defending his politically unpopular but militarily daring plan to implement the surge. On May 1, 2007, at an address to a CENTCOM Coalition Conference at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, he explained why he thought it would be a mistake to abandon the surge strategy and immediately withdraw U.S. combat forces. He said that the option proposed by people like Senators Obama, Clinton and Biden was to “pull back from [Baghdad] before the Iraqis could defend themselves against these radicals and extremists and death squads and killers. That risked turning Iraq into a cauldron of chaos.” He explained that “the enemies of freedom, love chaos. Out of that chaos they could find new safe havens. Withdrawal would have emboldened these radicals and extremists. It would have confirmed their belief that our nations were weak. It would help them gain new recruits, new resources. It would cause them to believe they could strike free nations at their choice.”
Rubbish.

Robbins earns his living duping morons like you Flack!

This prejudging crap by Missouri Governor Nixon is typical.

"We have a responsibility," Nixon said, "to come together, and do everything we can to achieve justice for [Brown's] family."

Another large pile of bullshit is the ¨They better indict the cop or all hell will break loose.¨

Grand juries are bullshit, regardless of politics.

Nobody forced Mike to attack the cop either.
That attack is being excused by the liberal media who love the riots. The Sharpton Agenda, aided by the libs, is to incite and spread the dysfunction.

In every town of this country, there are members of a racist, malignant sub-culture living in squalor who have been taught to think that they have been "abandoned" by Society, i.e., White Society, and exploit every faux incident, e.g., the Brown shooting, to express their frustration/anger at Society, e.g., looting.

Reality: it is THEY who have abandoned Society with their pedantic, endless entitlement mentality combined with blaming whitey in perpetuity for the negative consequences of their self-defeating behaviors.

Reason and personal accountability- it's a White Thing. If you're one of the "Ferguson" protesters you wouldn't understand, nor would you want to quit hanging out and causing trouble and looting..

Two New York Federal Reserve surveys show employers’ health care costs continue to rise, and the health care law is driving them to hire more part-time labor, CNBC reports:

The median respondent to the N.Y. Fed surveys expects health coverage costs to jump by 10 percent next year, after seeing a similar percentage increase last year.

Obamacare's higher costs will cascade down to consumers. The surveys found that “36 percent of manufacturers and 25 percent of service firms said they were hiking prices in response” to Obamacare’s effects.

Last April, filers and accountants found a new array of taxes resulting from the health care legislation. They included at least 20 ObamaCare-related tax increases totaling $409 billion over the next ten years, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

AdvaMed, a trade association, finds the medical device tax alone may put 45,000 jobs at risk. The National Federation of Independent Businesses projects that new taxes on insurance companies may jeopardize another 125,000 to 249,000 jobs.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/15/ho...

Of course, none of those figures include the man-hour costs of complying with 20,000 pages of regulations.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...but most of us aren't surprised.

There are zero states where the percentage of people employed has gone up since the recession
By Hunter Schwarz August 19 at 4:13 PM
From 2007 to 2014, the employment rate among 25- to 54-year-olds has declined in the United States by 3.5 percent, and no state reported employment gains during that time, according to data released by the Pew Charitable Trust on Tuesday.
The state with the largest decline is New Mexico, where 9.2 percent fewer people are employed today than they were in 2007. Vermont and Nebraska had the smallest decline, both less than 1 percent, and 19 other states had declines that were determined to be not statistically significant.
The study used data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau and concluded the employment-to-population ratio for prime-age workers is weak and poses problems for states’ budgets as income from sales and business tax is down and costs for services like Medicaid are up.
I love it how it always go back to 2007 when the whiners want to b*tch about Obama.
