    That can apply to Arab Spring.

    I’m not quite sure what Obama and the U. S. government had to do with instituting the Arab Spring. Did I miss something?

    Uh … who’s pushing for us to get involved in Syria again? I hear most of the drumbeating for a Syria war from guys like John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

    is absolutely right.


    I’m sure he saw Obama personally hand that Tunisian boy a can of petrol and a match.

    Pretty sure the invasion if Iraq was based on “Daddy didn’t get Saddam so I’m gonna finish the job.”

    A true foreign-policy conundrum: we are against a military coup that deposed a democratically-elected leader, but we’re much happier with the replacements that the military installed. Not a single Islamist in the Cabinet so far, according to our local newspaper.

    No, the philosophy behind the invasion of Iraq was “install a US-friendly despot so we can get oil cheaper”. We only want democracy when we know we’ll get someone who bends a knee to us.

    No, they agreed because the administration argued there were WMDs there. But that was a lie.

    The most compelling evidence is that he declared “mission accomplished” when we got Saddam. The fact that we destroyed a country and left it in shambles wasn’t even on his radar.

    So you are for a military coup anytime a freely elected government isn’t to your liking? Here (in the U.S.) we wait for the next election.

    Because, like so many other foreign “interventions”, we abjectly fouled it up.
    Doesn’t stop us from wanting to keep trying, apparently.

    Actually, he declared “Mission Accomplished” on May 1, 2003 and Saddam was captured on December 13, 2003. Bush declared “Mission Accomplished” when he did because he felt like it.

    @Ionizer

    “Yes, as usual.”

    I also don’t understand the “why” of an inane comment Instead of explaining to me what the administration did to instigate the Arab Spring. I haven’t seen any reports saying that our government was involved in the wholesale overthrow of governments.

    I would hope that this not your normal response to someone pleading ignorance and requesting information.
