HeyRedShirtHarvard -"You can keep spouting your hatred of Bush,
but it was Obama that dropped the ball on this one."Oh, a sports
metaphor huh? Football?Obama dropped the ball?. . . When
the other team was ahead infinity to nothing? Obama didn't drop
any ball, but he had the good sense to cut American losses.Republican leaders have still not developed enough sense to do that.Their solution is to keep doubling down on losing strategies . . . NOT smart.
To "GaryO" remind us again who didn't go after ISIL when it was the
JV team and could have easily been defeated. I will give you a hint, it
wasn't BUSH. According to some of the fringe liberals, the rise of ISIS is
due to climate change. However, if you look at who the Commander in Chief was
when ISIS was a small and easily destroyed group, you will see that it
wasn't a Republican.You can keep spouting your hatred of Bush,
but it was Obama that dropped the ball on this one.
Hey Redshirt -"To "GaryO" remind us again who was so
eager to pull out of Iraq, and who it was that told us that ISIL is part of the
JV team and isn't anything to worry about?"LOL . . .Way to lash out with non sequiturs.ISIL was a JV team, back
when it was JV team. Even Michael Jordan was on a JV team before he made the
varsity. And guess what, MJ didn’t even start.Things
change.ISIL has an IDEA that is extremely attractive to certain
people, and they rally around that idea. By deposing and killing Saddam, GW Bush
left a power vacuum. Al Qadah filled it. And ISIL branched off from Al Qadah.
ISIL has legions of impressionable souls at its command, many of
whom lost family and loved ones in GW’s war.Republican
malfeasance built the power base FOR ISIL. And how much longer did
you want to stay in Iraq? Another 10 years? 50?The joke of a
government GW built could NEVER survive on its own.
To "GaryO" remind us again who was so eager to pull out of Iraq, and who
it was that told us that ISIL is part of the JV team and isn't anything to
Hey RedShirt -"You do realize that ISIS grew from something that
a squad of special forces could have taken out to its current size during the
time that your beloved Obama has been in office."WRONG. An idea
can’t be wiped out by a squad of special forces. Few of the original
members remain alive, but ISIL is stronger than ever. They crave revenge."Obama told us . . . that the region was stable."And
it was . . . in a limited way.But we shouldn’t forget that
Iraq was much, much more stable and self reliant before Republican geniuses
DESTROYED that stability.If stability in Iraq requires a perpetual
and significant American military presence, then that kind of stability it is
certainly no victory for America, is it? GW’s little romp
through Iraq was a complete and utter FAILURE from the very beginning. We
achieved NONE of the initial goals.That war succeeded only in
destabilizing the area and creating millions of dedicated enemies to this
nation.That's what we can expect from "Conservative"
leadership, isn't it?
To "GaryO" really? You do realize that ISIS grew from something that a
squad of special forces could have taken out to its current size during the time
that your beloved Obama has been in office. You do remember that during the
2012 elections that Obama told us the war on terror was coming to an end and
that the region was stable.We know you hate Bush, but you really
should read about how ISIS grew because of Obama's actions.
Republican leadership is a gift that keeps on giving, doesn't it?Six years after the horrendous GW Bush administration, its legacy lives on.GW launched a war under false pretenses, thus guaranteeing his own
re-election at the expense of this nation and the entire world.The
Islamic State would not exist if it were not for that lying Republican
administration and its conquest of Iraq, the murder of its leader, the
consequent power vacuum quickly filled by Al Qaedah, the obliteration of a
nation's infrastructure, and the deaths of over 4 thousand American service
members and over 100 thousand Iraqis.How many terrorists do you
suppose GW created? How many of US would not pledge a blood vendetta against a
foreign power and its people who bombed us to smithereens? . . . And started a
war that resulted in the deaths of our friends and families?And now
ISIL is taunting us. GW's boys in Iraq and Syria are taunting us . . .
Beheading westerners and Christians, and destroying priceless relics . . .
Practically begging us to put American boots on the ground in force.And who is it that wants to do their bidding?You got it . . .
