The Jihadists lover Obama was able to erase the Achievements of US troop in Iraq by giving the Iranian Caliphate control over Maliki in his support of the Iranian nuke Caliphate. Obama is opening the borders for the Jihadist Mozlem Brother terrorists that will flood America and build Caliphate on the ruins of America. Obama is dangerous to America as he is behind the Iranian nuke Caliphate and the ISIS Syrian-Iraqi WMDs Caliphate which destabilizes the Middle East and harm the American national security. Israel is right to destroy and defeat the Jihadist al Qaida terrorists of ISIS which are building new Caliphate on the border of Israel seeking to destroy Israel and expand their Caliphate with the arming and training of the Jihadist minded Obama of the White House. The attack on Israelis from Syria by the Jihadist ISIS of al Qaida that get support from the Jihadist Caliphate agenda lover proves the betrayal of Obama and his liberal Jewish supporters that support the worst enemies of Israel and America from both sides of the Iraqi war. The Jihadist in chief Obama is arming and training the al Qaida Jihadist ISIS terrorists and support their Caliphate that declares its main goal to destroy Israel and kill the Jews after finishing taking over major parts of Iraq. Obama and Hillary released the al Qaida leader Abu Baker and trained him n using American weapons which are now used in Iraq and now against Israel. The liberal Jews of America go blind after the jihadist in chief Obama who vowed to support the Iranian nukes and their sponsored terrorists as well as the ISIS al Qaida in a Jihad war against Israel and America.

The disinformation from the Communists in America started only weeks after 9/11. They started confusing the American public with everything from their common anti-war crap to aliens attacked the Trade Centers. They placed druggie, sex crazed deviant operatives in the military to discredit our fine troops. They exaggerated "torture" issues and made false claims. They delayed action long enough to allow Saddam to ship WMD to Syria, where today that WMD is used by the troops the Communists have funded and armed to attack innocent women and children.

The Communist in the White House and his druggie, cowardly supporters have been able to reverse every gain in the War on Terror, giving outright victory to the terrorist scum of the Earth. Communist scum thrive on introducing anarchy and horror. It's all they're really good at...

Not only did the United States destabilize Iraq and create all kinds of human misery and chaos for millions of innocent people, now the same freaks who supported this effort want to turn their backs on them and act as if all of this is the fault of Obama?

It seems the destabilization not only worked in Iraq, but the minds of some Repubs still remains unstable.

Throwing around the word Communist or Socialist or whatever the Repubs happen to be against at the moment does not change the fact that the war in Iraq was started simply to gain profit. There were dollar signs all over it and you must ask yourself, who profited from this horror?

I am pretty sure Hell is freezing over since even Fox Folks have decided to unload on Cheney. And even more amazing, Pat Robertson freaked out and started dumping on Bush. Sad thing is, it is all too little too late.

It will take someone extremely wise, compassionate and powerful to clean up this sad mess.

From Pat Robertson:

"George Bush went into Iraq with approval from Congress, but with disapproval of most other countries. We broke it, now it is our responsibility to fix it. Is there hope? How does this fit into the plans of Almighty God?" asked the viewer.

Regarding the onset of war over 10 years ago, Robertson responded that "it was a great mistake to go in there." "To sell the American people on Weapons of Mass Destruction, it was a lot of nonsense and we were sold a bill of goods," said Robertson."We should have never gone into that country. As bad as Saddam Hussein was, he held those warring factions in check and he contained those radical Islamists."

The assumption is incorrect. I do not believe WWII was entered into because of profit. In fact, the United States tried very hard not to get involved, or at least the public was not hot on the idea. It took Pearl Harbor to do get folks to wake up.

The sacrifices that the American people were eager to make back then was admirable. Everything from women entering the workplace, saving bacon fat, metal, food and fuel rationing and the like was not easy, but every bit helped. The growth of victory gardens and the sharing and caring that people demonstrated has not been matched since.

So would the American people be able to deal with rationing of fuel, food, sugar? Would we ever go back to a draft, and this time not just of our sons, it is only fair to enlist able bodied women too. Would neighborhood associations be able to relax and let people and grow their own food? The unintended consequences of really fighting a war to win are numerous. Once in, we would have to suck it up and do the right thing.

But all I hear from so many is a lot of cry baby whining when the smallest sacrifice is asked of the public for things that would be for the greater good. Anytime the greater good is implied, the backlash is an accusation of Communism. It is just tiresome.

Ask yourself that and think about the "overreaction" you are so fond of lobbing at others. I can only imagine the backlash if we decided to go all in and really fight a war the old fashioned way, with a draft, sacrifices, the whole bit. If a Repub asks for it, it is Patriotic. But if a Demo asks for it, then it is Socialism.

ďI think the same questions could be asked of those who supported the Iraq War. You know, were they right in their predictions? Were there weapons of mass destruction there? Thatís what the war was sold on. Was democracy easily achievable? Was the war won in 2005, when many of these people said it was won?

They didnít really, I think, understand the civil war that would break out.Ē Adding,ďAnd whatís going on now ó I donít blame on President Obama,Ē Rand said.

You have to ask yourself, are you willing to send your son, am I willing to send my son, to take back a city, Mosul, that they weren't willing to defend themselves?" "I'm not willing to send my son into that mess."

Rand Paul wasn't elected until 2010, so bears absolutely no responsibility for going in to Iraq or Afghanistan. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton said yes to both.

Racism just will not die a dignified death. It just keeps raising it's ugly head. Chop one off, and three come back for the funeral.

Never ending misery.

Hillary said yes because she was naive enough to expect a president to tell the truth about something so critically important. She did not expect such a conscious lie, that would cost so many lives, from Excrement-in-chief #43.

Your comment is pure hogwash! She was a cheerleader for Iraq and had access to the same information Bush had. Saying Hillary Clinton was naive is like calling a razorback cuddly. If, as you say, she was naive, that's just one more reason she should never again live in the White House.
