"The Afghanistan war has expanded out of control, and the war makes no sense. The government says there are 100 Al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan, and so the troop levels are higher, more people are dying and they want to stamp out the opium trade. They can't even stop people from buying crack four blocks from the White House, not that they should try. This is the most ridiculous war. It's even a more ridiculous war than the Iraq war in terms of the idea behind it"

"Let's say we had a third Bush term. If he was planning to withdraw gradually from Iraq and leave Afghanistan alone, I think the trajectory would have been much better than it is today, where Iraq is about where I think it would have been, and Afghanistan is much worse."

But give Obama credit. He eventually took the war everywhere. Same article

"Meanwhile, Obama is drone-attacking Pakistan. He's expanded this war greatly. One or 2 million Pakistani refugees have had to leave the Swat Valley. It's one of the greatest refugee crises since Rwanda. Obama's bombed Yemen; he's bombed Somalia; he even threatened Eritrea, this tiny little country near Ethiopia, with invasion.

In a normal country, when your government says it might invade another country, people have a clue, but we're at war so much with so many countries no one even knows any of this stuff."

Thank Goodness for George Bush. He expanded the budget for drones by 122 million.

"In December of '08, when he was the lame-duck president, Bush signed the Status of Forces Agreement with the Iraqi leadership, which set the timetable for withdrawal. It was almost precisely the timetable for withdrawal that Obama had proposed, within a couple months.

So the official US policy, by the time Obama took office, was that the United States would withdraw the troops from the cities by June of 2009; and by the end of this year, 2011, the troops would leave Iraq entirely. That was the policy when Obama took power. He did not expedite that."

"And he did cut the spending in Iraq. But the spending has gone up enormously in Afghanistan. Even adjusted for inflation, we see that, other than Bush's last two years with the surge, total spending was lower for most of the Bush term on the two wars."

And dumb followers like you believed him , without asking questions.
How dumber can people get? Al Qaeda was very much there when GWB the great left... that was what US people got out of his 8 years of misrule.
But dumb people will forever sing his praises.
So nice to see Boko Haram spreading the good will of your Islamic beliefs, yes indeed. Young girls for the taking....stoning rape victims for adultery...islam us the gift that keeps on giving...Speaking of dumb people....look in the sky...the sun split in a half for a minute or so...did you see it?

Birds were singing all kinds of tunes. But at the end of the GWB sang best
No GWB the Great did not sing the best....the best was when he was given the "shoe treatment" and he was selected by US people as the worst president in its 200 years of history.

But zombies like you do not listen to real tunes.!!

You want to taste what its like to have true freedom...call king absdullah the worst leader of all time and see if nothing happens to you...go to iran and call the self appointed GRAND ayatollah clueless and see what freedom tastes like. The only reason you criticize US and its presidents is because they are not Islamic leaders...but at least in islam you are given the right to remain clueless...

What is this sort of argument? If some is doing wrong thing, it does not give you right to do wrong too.

The problem is that GWB the Great did great damage to USA and it would take many decades for it to subside

Why you care what damage is done to USA? Islam is about conversion of nonmuslims and everyone knows the USA Russia and China will never become Islamic nations so what it matter what GW the Great did? Did you love USA before Bush took office?

Do you support Boko Haram or should they be punished for what they do to little girls? I think like Iran wishes to do to Israel, Boko Haram should be wiped off the map....do you have any children, perhaps any young daughters?

Haven't heard from Francis for some time, ever since we were talking about how Obumble had taken drone warfare to unprecedented levels and the fact that obumble could have given every man ,woman, child and rider type 2 million a piece in lieu of funding the healthcare.org website...I imagine frank-eh is still trying to figure out how to sign up for his free healthcare...stay well and stay thirsty my friend...
Bidness and the family are doing well.

Maybe Frank has gone to cuba to try and close gitmo? Or maybe he's gotten one of the millions of promised "green" jobs?

Imagine how much brainwashing it would take to convince the Japanese to flood Japan with NON-Japanese until they themselves become a minority
To convince them to force affirmative action AGAINST THEMSELVES with all those NON-Japanese
That this “diversity” is a strength
And to convince them that it would be “racist” to NOT do this to themselves
No need convincing WHITE anti-whites of this in EVERY white country, they’re already convinced
Anti-Racist is a code for Anti-White

Glad to hear things are going well amigo.

As far as Lane Rider Bryant didn't you hear? The scooter store had a recall on the scooter chair due to incorrect calculations on total weight capacity design. Total "safety factor" weight it could safely support was reduced from 550 to 450 so I hear she is on diet and exercise...reduced her calorie intake from 50,000 calories a day to 45,500 and for exercise is placing the remote control just far enough away where she actually has to reach to get it...happy mothers day to momma and sally...

You are not a friend of GWB the great, you are like a dog and he is your master. He is superguy for you. You worship the ground on which he walks.
Why you hide your feeling saying "he is your friend", how can you equate yourself with him.
He has blood of a million people on his hand and he is a billionaire ..... how can he be your friend?
