    Why doesn’t Kerry see if they have a deserter to trade us?

    Yes, it’s much better for rich conservatives to play in the sand with American lives, because they make their money with war profiteering, not selling food.

    Of course, you mean the Obama bug out that the ultra conservatives have so effectively argued that was negotiated by GW Bush!

    And I can well imagine just what those same ultra conservatives would have said about president Obama being another warmongering Hitler, had he ignored the agreements made by those negotiations with the government of Iraq!

    You guys and your chickenhawk buddies are a hypocritical crack up!!

    It seems that some here are suggesting that Bush should have negotiated the withdrawal such that the contingent of U.S. troops remaining in Iraq should be subject to Sharia law, and others suggest that Obama should have renegotiated the withdrawal agreement so that the troops remaining should come under Sharia law. That was a stipulation by Iraq’s government that was non-negotiable. Under this proviso, I agree with Bush’s and Obama’s position, complete withdrawal. The Iraqi government, between the withdrawal agreement and the way their Constitution is written, created the conditions which created the problems they now face. Don’t blame Bush or Obama.

    He didn’t really plagiarize, according to his autobiography he just didn’t go to class when they were teaching how to cite another author. He actually missed a lot of law school classes even though he was on a scholarship. I think the school was trying to punish him and get him to improve his attendance. He said he used the time to play intramural sports.

    He produced false statements in order to be awarded undeserved military decorations.

    This is what happens when you replace “hard power” with “smart power.”

    Every time I hear “extremists” or “jerks” applied to religionists, I also think Baker, Pat Robertson, Moon, L. Ron Hubbard, or the anti-gay fundamentalists with their closet boy “bangs”. Anyone thinking the Protestant Reformation, or Inquisition, or centuries of abuse of populations by “missionaries” was less violent in result, needs to study some history.

    when I hear “extremist” or “jerk” I think of the antireligious bigots like stalin or hitler or mao

    Hence putting in place a sectarian leader who was happy to discriminate against Sunnis fight the Kurds and institute harsh Islamic law.

    This backdroped by routine suicide bombings in most urban centers and the continued degradation of countryside towards the stone age.

    Iraq was an amalgamation of various cultures imposed by the British whom did not pay much attention when drawing the boarders in the middle east.

    Balkanization is likely appropriate in Iraq if one does not desire an iron-fisted dictator. The Kurdish government is already established and has accomplished feats of stability unrivaled by most of the surrounding region.

    Why there needs to be a fetishism for existing boarders I have no idea. It was recognized immediately after boarders were drawn that there would be issues. Ultimately the state should be for the protection of human lives. Not human lives for the protection of the state

    “[s]ooner or later, honest liberals will have to admit that Obama’s Iraq policy has been a disaster. Since the president took office, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has grown ever more tyrannical and ever more sectarian, driving his country’s Sunnis toward revolt. Since Obama took office, Iraq watchers—including those within his own administration—have warned that unless the United States pushed hard for inclusive government, the country would slide back into civil war. Yet the White House has been so eager to put Iraq in America’s rearview mirror that, publicly at least, it has given Maliki an almost-free pass. Until now, when it may be too late.”

    “…..GW Bush was a diplomat who worked with, Obama is a my way or nothing…..”
    Please don’t make those kind of statements when I’m having a good red wine. I just choked a mouthful all over my computer.

    “…….Obama has 0 that is ZERO credibility on the world stage compared with GW Bush! …”
    There you go again, only this time it was coffee……all over my computer. This computer is really a mess!
    George Bush can’t even leave the U.S. or he will be arrested and tried as a war criminal at The Hague.
