The reports in the archive disclosed by WikiLeaks offer an incomplete, yet startlingly graphic portrait of one of the most contentious issues in the Iraq war — how many Iraqi civilians have been killed and by whom.

The reports make it clear that most civilians, by far, were killed by other Iraqis. Two of the worst days of the war came on Aug. 31, 2005, when a stampede on a bridge in Baghdad killed more than 950 people after several earlier attacks panicked a huge crowd, and on Aug. 14, 2007, when truck bombs killed more than 500 people in a rural area near the border with Syria.

But it was systematic sectarian cleansing that drove the killing to its most frenzied point, making December 2006 the worst month of the war, according to the reports, with about 3,800 civilians killed, roughly equal to the past seven years of murders in New York City. A total of about 1,300 police officers, insurgents and coalition soldiers were also killed in that month.

yes I said that.

Schools for girls.......that must just be tearing you up knowing girls are being educated.
Girls instead of being married at 11 years old go to class instead.
This is a shocking development to you. What does this say about you?
you are saying they were better off as sex slaves beaten to satisfy your needs, and kept indoors so other men seeking 11 year olds would not have the chance to spoil your snack?
Because of politics of liberals here in America we have allowed this week for men to resume their old behavior and collection of some more pets. Pets being young girls to rape.
Are you confusing Iraq and Afghanistan? Or are you just thinking middle east = lack of women's rights?

Ba'athism was pretty intensely secular for the region and put a lot of effort behind greater political and social participation for women. Access to education, work, ability to serve in the armed forces. The religiosity and crackdown on women's rights came in from 2003 on, sadly.

Oblamo will never commit ground troops. Never!

Really he could care less. By the time Oblamo gets around to doing something the entire country will be controlled by the same person he freed in 2009.

Makes you think this is part of the plan based on his pro radical Islamic terrorist policies.

New Taxes
Now we have a BLOW HARD on here, telling everyone, how well off he is. Funny thing, he didn't mention paying more taxes.
The Affordable Care Act also includes new taxes.
Most new taxes are on high-earners, large businesses, and the healthcare industry.
Now if our wingbag Reality Speaks got hit with new taxes, we would never hear the end of it would we?
No because why?
He is receiving TAX CREDITS Folks. He isn't paying more - but less. The way that old bloated up beer belly brags, or runs down Obama, if he were paying more, we would not have heard the last of it.
However, there are some tax related provisions every American should be aware of: Tax Credits to subsidize costs for low-to-middle income Americans and small businesses starting 2014, an Employer Mandate for large employers to provide health insurance to full-time employees by 2016, an Individual Mandate for individuals and families obtain health insurance by 2014, and lastly new limits to medical deductions.

Good point D4M. I am still waiting for her to prove Oblamocare is not fully implemented until 2022 and many other items I have called her on.

Of course she may mean that the website will be fully implemented by then. But then again I don't want to get my hopes up.

He came into trillions of debt and a failing economy post-crisis and did what he could. Despite stiff resistance from the Republican-controlled house, he has in fact kept the majority of his promises. The ones that he did break are due more to compromises he had to make with the Republicans. He gets a bad rap because most Republican's expected him to fix all of our problems in 6 months. Magically jobs would be created. unemployment would drop below 4.5%

Now this:

In his State of the Union address, in January, President Obama said,“When I took office, nearly a hundred and eighty thousand Americans were serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, all our troops are out of Iraq.” It was a boast, not an apology. The descent of Iraq into open civil war in the past week has not, to judge from his remarks on Friday, fundamentally changed that view. He did grant that it was alarming that the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham,“a terrorist organization that operates in both Iraq and in Syria,” had made what he delicately called “significant gains” in Iraq.(That is, it has taken control of more than one city.) He said that he wasn’t entirely surprised—things hadn’t been looking good in Iraq for a while, and we’d been giving the government there more help.“Now Iraq needs additional support to break the momentum of extremist groups and bolster the capabilities of Iraqi security forces,” he said. After all, as he put it,“Nobody has an interest in seeing terrorists gain a foothold inside of Iraq.” But there were limits:“We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq.”

Think about this:

Look at all of the American lives lost for Iraq, billions spent. And when push comes to shove, the Iraqis fall like dominos. They are like prisoners, some people you can't help. They keep falling in the same old rut.

The Obama Brain:

Speaking from the South Lawn, Obama argued that this was not just a matter of what the American people would accept, or the limits of our capacity to make sacrifices for humanitarian goals. It’s more that he doesn’t see the point. As he sees it, after all our investment of lives and money—“extraordinary sacrifices”—the Iraqis have not been willing to treat each other decently, and until they do our air strikes won’t help.“This is not solely, or even primarily, a military challenge,” he said, and went on:

Unfortunately, Iraqi leaders have been unable to overcome, too often, the mistrust and sectarian differences that have long been simmering there.… We can’t do it for them. And in the absence of this type of political effort, short-term military action—including any assistance we might provide—won’t succeed.… So the United States will do our part, but understand that ultimately it’s up to the Iraqis, as a sovereign nation, to solve their problems.

We cannot blame Obama for pulling out the American troops.

If you're still blaming Bush, Oblamo doesn't have the answer.
