I used to think you just had a screw loose. With this comment, you've proven you're just bat-sh!t crazy. Bush handed Øbama a stable Iraq and all Øbama had to do was draw down forces and negotiate a SOF agreement, which Øbama fvcked up like a soup sandwich, as he does in all matters of consequence, much the same as he plans for Afghanistan.

We never should have attacked Iraq to begin with. We created the mess with which Iraqis are now trying to cope.

Had we left well enough alone, maybe the Arab Spring would have taken care of Sadam and his evil spawn.

Now we will never know and worse, since we waged war with no clear goal in mind, Islamic militant groups have moved in where they never were before and screwing with things.

Nobody has the right answer. Now it is all just material for pundits to blame each party. In the meantime, so many people are suffering and it feels like nobody gives a Sh!t.

It Blows!

Speaking of weapons of mass destruction, bombing countless innocent men, women and children to promote the interests of large international oil companies would be completely unconscionable.

Airstrikes,drones(no boots on the ground.) are the least we can do since the Iraqi Airforce was nice enough to rescue US contractors trapped by jihadists that our military abandoned. The US Airforce was in a stand-down position,not even assisting with air cover because US officials refused to get involved. 300 contractors have been evacuated.

A lot of Iraqis helped our military out by giving information about insurgents, terrorist plans and people hiding various places. How do you think they will be treated now that we are gone?

Another reason of course is that once the country is under control by terrorists, they can openly train and plan another attack on US citizens either here or abroad.

We do have a US interest in Iraq right now.

Who would we really be helping by going into Iraq. I'm sorry but regardless of who's running the sand toilet, civilians' lives suck. Americans would be safer if we used those resources to protect the US. You will never win a war of ideology.
If their democratically elected government, shows no interest in including representation of all their people.....then just observe their civil war, they seem destined to have.....

George W. Bush’s Head Cheerleader For The Iraq War Forgets What Year The War Started

After Talking Points Memo called him out on this, Fleischer tried to blame it on hitting the ‘wrong key.’ Just like his old boss, Fleischer isn’t really keen on that whole accountability thing.

....yesterday's mashed potatoes...ie. the gop. LMAO.
