    Wonder if she’s ever heard of south of Saharan Africa: the next potential dustups? Oh, right, that’s only because they too are mostly Muslim populations.

    Does this woman ever do ANYTHING that is not totally anti president Obama, even when he deserves our support as president?

    Saddam had no trouble keeping the lid on Iraq.
    What’s al-Maliki’s problem?

    And why blame it on Obama?(Other than he’s not Republican? Or white?)

    Research Maliki 20 minutes and the ‘confusion’ over Iraq will clear right up: the man doesn’t want to deal faithfully with Kurds or Sunnis and now – what do you know? – they don’t want to deal with him.

    This is about politics, not race. Most right wing pundits can’t see past political affiliation long enough to care about skin color.

    Whether you feel that way or not, he is still the elected president of the USA, and at least some of your statement could be interpreted as out and out treason.

    And yes, I opposed many of the policies of GW Bush (in particular our even going into Iraq in the first place) but I would never have even thought the way your hatred is showing you to be thinking, let alone made posts like that treasonous one you just made!

    Or should we then just string him up because he is an African American? I know the ultra conservatives generally do not like others to bring up race in such a manner, but your post certainly deserves such condemnation!!

    Most liberals who comment seem willfully ignorant of what true conservationism is. The fact is most conservatives are thoughtful, analytical people who understand cause & effect, and see a world beyond the pettiness of feel-good, tribal politics. Most conservatives I know look at the Republican party as “the better of two evils” and hope for better representation. Most that I know are not racists or homophobes, but believe a stronger America is a conservative one. You sir, are reinforcing the liberal mis-characterization of the Conservative movement. Please stop it.

    I say this feeling as you, this President has done everything he can to push a destructive agenda and reshape what it means to be American. I do believe his crimes are egregious and plentiful and he should be impeached. While I appreciate the passion your post contains, a duly elected President should be removed from office legally and with cause or we’re no better than those we fight.

    I hope Obama is smart enough to get us out of the entire Middle East . We didn’t “break it in the first place”, as many of those who advocate American participation claim. Middle Eastern society has been broken for longer than the United States has existed. In the history of that region, peace has been a rare situation, always imposed by a government strong enough to prevent people who would otherwise be shooting (or throwing spears at) each other from doing so. It can’t be any different when the majority of people would shoot each other over religious differences that would be considered trivial by anyone who had any education that involved more than one book. And, those who are uneducated are convenient tools to gain power for those few who are not, which provides encouragement to keep them uneducated.

    But the saying " the enemy of my enemy is my friend" does not apply in this case. Each side is our enemy. We are “infidels”, making us more “killable” to each side than the other side and going over there to interfere is of no value to the American people. We need to simply stand back, allow them to manage their affairs however they would if we didn’t exist, and maybe in a few hundred years they will work it out. Once they realize that we have lost interest in them, perhaps they will return the favor and ignore us too. Killing each other is a more immediate goal.In those cases where we can infuse some actual education into the mix, that probably would be helpful— which is why they hate teachers more than soldiers. But military interference from America accomplishes nothing except creating hatred for our country, and leaving tanks, guns and bullets where they can be used to prolong the fighting. Granted, mutual hatred for America could bring the two sides together sooner than might otherwise be the case, to attack us, but that doesn’t seem to me to be a desirable outcome. Ultimately, each country belongs to the citizens of that country, and until they fix it themselves, it ain’t fixed.

    To be fair, this is President Obama’s approach to every foreign policy issue.

    The best lie is a partial truth. Liberals are born masters of the Partial Arts.

    Your hysteria serves no purpose but to expose you as foolish.

    Even Romney had it right, agreeing with the military and the Bush administration that pulling out of Iraq too early with no reserve force left behind to keep things stable was going to be a disaster. Barry knew better.
