1 billion dollars to built embassy in Baghdad that's about to get 'trashed'.
Largest most expensive US embassy ever built.*=* Show of conceit* in itself *=*
* vanity, narcissism, egotism, self-admiration, self-regard

Over a trillion dollars spent on a war that 'evidently' was a waste?
Bush you need it all rammed up your petuter!

This is a great loss of blood and treasure but blame that loss on Obama. The Military wanted to leave a force of 20,000 troops Obama agreed to 3,000. With only 3,000 Malike could see the US was running and he had no gain by granting the troops to stay. Obama also insisted that it go through parliament which would never happen. This is just like Vietnam when the war was won and we left without any support of South Vietnam.

Denny do you know who it is that follows you raround with a 'chip' on their shoulder? I never pay any attention to judgeits when I get them but I do notice when others do.
One of these days 'we'=may= learn to fight our own wars (take care of ourselves) and quit sticking our nose in where it does no good. If 'we' can ever get the government (by voting) to put away their narcissist ideals and deal with the things at hand 'we' can have a great country again.

Apparently no one, not Bush or Obama, or any of the arrogant POLS running this country have studied the history of the Arabian peninsula and its surrounds. If they had they would know that the "indigenous peoples" in the Middle East are never, NEVER going to stop their religious wars. The President and his advisers think that air power alone will stop ISIS. That's not going to happen. As many promises as politicians have broken (and consistently break), I hope the President keeps his latest. You know, the one where he said he would not commit ground troops.

A lot of comparisons have been made between Vietnam and Iraq. Well, here is one more.

Nixon took credit for ending the war in 'Nam , but he didn't. He ended the American involvement and shortly after we pulled out, the NVA and VC took total control of all of Vietnam.

Obama took credit for ending the Iraq war and said we (America) were leaving a sound and stable Iraqi government with a well trained and armed military. But, he didn't and we didn't. He ended the American involvement in the war in Iraq and the Iraqi government and military are shams.

I know there must be an especially hot corner of hell for the politicians of our country. Hell, not only for our POLS, but all the MikeFoxtroting - CharlieSierras that run this world.

Q: How can you tell a POL is lying?
A: His lips are moving

I just attempted explaining your 1st paragraph to my wife.
The history of the middle eastern countries has been the same since the beginning of time ( Yes even before Christ ) and any attempt to change that is futile. "The Bible tells me so"
Just look what they did to him?
And if it happened again - Christ coming to earth - we'd do the same thing they did - I guess we're doing a pretty good job and he's not even here yet.

Eric was my troll who followed me every where. I really don't care a bit because I don't value a trolls opinion. All these grey box trolls don't have the courage to identify their self. As a libertarian I agree with the principle of not being the worlds policeman but as a practical matter every since WW2 that roll has been forced upon us. Truman was under great pressure to bring our troops home from Germany and Japan and Korea. Had he done that what would the world look like today? The Soviets would have swallowed up Europe. China would have taken Japan. Obama is the anti Truman. He wants to change the policy of the last 60 years. Look what happened to South Vietnam when we stopped supporting them. Hind sight is so very clear but when you are in the position you can only do what you think will bring the best result for America. Bush was doing his best and with the information available he made the best decision. There were WMDs and we found only 500. Could we take the chance that Sadam would provide them to terrorist to attack America?

I agree with most of what you say. It has only been a few years since it was the Catholic and Protestants were killing each other in Ireland. If it wasn't for oil we would not care that the two different sects of Muslims were killing each other . 100 years ago the Muslims were running around the desert cutting each others heads off and when the oil is gone they will still be running around the desert cutting each other heads off. The question is can we afford to have a terrorist state funded with billions in oil money?

Don't worry about the embassy. Obama is sending 275 troops to protect it just like Benghazi :) He must have heard about it on the news

Obama has his head stuck in a sand trap on the 7th hole :) That sand is as close as he is going to get to the middle east :)
