    Not to worry. When President Obama finishes his fund raising speeches today, he will issue a statement strongly condemning Iran's role in Iraq.

    After paying an enormous American human life and economic cost to free Iraq and attempt to increase stability in that region... to think that most of this ongoing violence and internal war could've been avoided if the untrained and unprepared Commander and Chief of the USA had had the presence of mind to leave a relatively small contingency troop force in Iraq after the main pullout, is sadly shocking and disappointing. Our generals and military experts actually begged him to do so... but to no avail.

    The USA left a contingency troop presence in Japan after WW2 and the ultra-positive results of peace have been obvious. It's too bad our "community organizer" doesn't seem to have the capability of learning from history.

    Now, one of the worst enemies to the United States is actively involved with the country and government that we utterly abandoned after our too-complete pullout. We naively left the situation ripe to happen. The cost is tens of thousands of additional civilian lives lost. And the additional deaths continue growing daily.

    Once again, our current foreign policy has been shown to be an utter and complete disaster.
