Thank you for revisiting the history of a conversation you say we had in a PM. There were no contradictions here in what I said tonight, but if I wish to discuss it on the thread, I will. There is nowhere that I said I had "several" cabins on the property. I may have said cabins (plural), but I never used the description "several".

You seem to have gotten a reasonable impression. Tonight, the discussion was between "Bonnie" and "Georgia Gal". If you have cabin curiosity, check in with either one of them.

We're going to become guilty, in my judgment, of being the greatest threat to the peace of the world. It's an ugly reality, and we Americans don't like to face up to it. I hate to think of the chapter of American history that's going to be written in the future in connection with our outlawry in Southeast Asia.

a
former US president Jimmy Carter about Lebanon debacle told the New York Times in a 1989 interview:
Freeing the World to Death, William Blum, p93
"We sent Marines into Lebanon and you only have to go to Lebanon, to Syria or to Jordan... to witness first-hand the intense hatred among many people for the United States because we bombed and shelled and unmercifully killed totally innocent villagers-women and children and farmers and housewives-in those villages around Beirut .... As a result of that... we became kind of a Satan in the minds of those who are deeply resentful. That is what precipitated the taking of our hostages and that is what has precipitated some of the terrorist attacks.
Seems you'd be WRONG!

Begging for US military in Baghdad?

Are things so bad in Iraq that the government in Baghdad would like U.S. troops to return?

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki appealed to President Obama for the U.S. military’s assistance on Friday, after his country suffered its most violent month in over five years.

Baghdad - Two Years After The US Military Left, Iraq Seeks More Help From America

Al-Maliki will discuss Iraq’s plight in a public speech Thursday at the U.S. Institute for Peace in Washington.

“We know we have major challenges of our own capabilities being up to the standard. They currently are not,” Lukman Faily, the Iraqi ambassador to the U.S., told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday.“We need to gear up, to deal with that threat more seriously. We need support and we need help.”
He added,“We have said to the Americans we’d be more than happy to discuss all the options short of boots on the ground.”

“Boots on the ground” means military forces. The U.S. withdrew all but a few hundred of its troops from Iraq in December 2011 after Baghdad refused to renew a security agreement to extend legal immunity for Americans forces, which would have let more stay.
At the time, the withdrawal was hailed as a victory for the Obama administration, which campaigned on ending the Iraq war and had little appetite for pushing Baghdad into a new security agreement. But within months, violence began creeping up in the capital and across the country as Sunni Muslim insurgents, angered by a widespread belief that Sunnis have been sidelined by the Shiite-led government, lashed out, with no U.S. troops to keep them in check.


... lashed out, with no U.S. troops to keep them in check.
More than 5,000 Iraqis have been killed in attacks since April, and suicide bombers launched 38 strikes in the last month alone.

Al-Maliki is expected to ask Obama for new assistance to bolster its military and fight al-Qaida. Faily said that could include everything from speeding up the delivery of U.S. aircraft, missiles, interceptors and other weapons, to improving national intelligence systems.

And when asked, he did not rule out the possibility of

asking the U.S. to send military special forces or additional CIA

advisers to Iraq to help train and assist counterterror troops.

No it's not propaganda Eagle. We as Americans have experienced countless tragedies under Republican leadership that did not put them under the blame microscope that Republicans are trying to put on Obama and his administration.

Face it, Republicans are desperate for ANYTHING to bring this president down even if it hurts our country.

It's high time they just admitted it.

Seneca, Roman philosopher

You must inevitably either hate or imitate the world. But the right thing to do is to shun both courses. You should neither become like the bad because they are many, nor be the enemy of the many because they are unlike you. Retire with yourself as much as you can. Associate with people who are likely to improve you. Welcome those whom you are capable of improving.

US is only there to protect our Stolen Bloodly OIl bases from Iraqi and to boost a dictatorial US puppet leader Al-maliki with arms/weapons and finance it to power to control its people from uprising against US invaders. But the Iraq people are left with not thing but destroyed land and their vital infrastructure destroyed by our US war machines. US killed over million iraqis and our US war displaced many iraqi refuge in neighboring nation , you love thisd and US even allowed some to come to US. There you go , as many us American are ignorant clueless what our corrupted US is doing aboard and at home.

U.S. State Department, 1945
Middle East oil is a stupendous source of strategic power, and one of the greatest material prizes in world history.

Miriam Pemberton and John Feffer,
Power Trip, ed. John Feffer, p188

The American addiction to petroleum propels our policies in the Middle East and justifies the expansion of U.S. military operations into West Africa, Central Asia, and Latin America. The more oil we burn, the more oil we need, and neither arctic wilderness nor human rights abroad has interfered with getting our fix.
