    Not exactly. The Cheneys wrote an excellent article about Obama’s terrible mistake leaving our concession in Iraq when Maliki wanted to hold US troops responsible for their actions under Shi’a law. Obama should have replaced Maliki for what were obvious crimes and put in someone who would agree that all US troops in Iraq are only subject to US law. (The US knew how to do that in the US Concessions in China until it was betrayed by the Communists in the State Department.) And Obama should have nuked ISIS more than a year ago. So, as Mr Cheney says, it’s all Obama’s fault that he got out, and it’s even more his fault that he hasn’t gone back in.

    So Mr Auth is unjustly criticising Mr Cheney, who (if one reads his article) makes an irrefutable case that it was a big mistake to leave and a bigger mistake not to go back.

    Although I don’t agree with your summary, I agree that it is a good article. Mr. Cheney actually does not address negotiations with Maliki – but suffice to say that Maliki and the leaders of Iraq’s political parties had privately indicated that they wanted the continued presence of US forces and if given political cover to do so would have agreed to continue to exempt US soldiers from Iraqi law. President Obama made no serious attempt to negotiate for such an agreement because he wanted to pull the troops out as soon as possible, regardless of the consequences.

    Here it comes! 5PM, Thursday, 19th. I just heard the President’s conference on the radio. US “Advisors” are being sent to Iraq, to advise the Iraqi military. Isn’t this how it started in Viet Nam?

    At this point, it doesn’t matter who is president, whether a Dem or a Repub. Exxon-Mobil, Conoco and the other Boys from Houston have much at stake in the Oil Refinery now being approached by ISIS militants. These interests must be protected. Washington, which has benefited by very generous largesse from these international mega-corporations, has received it’s instructions.

    Johnny, get ready to march again!

    Our blood bath has gone on long enough.
    Time to get out of the tub and let the new kids have a turn.

    Yes, sending “advisers” is Exactly how we got entrenched in Vietnam…a slippery slope, indeed… ;)

    “Its the conservatives who seem to want to go to war again…”
    How short sighted of you. Did you call Reagan a war monger when he defiantly said “tear down these walls”? How about when Kennedy stood against the Russians during the Cuban missile crisis? The difference is with both Kennedy and Reagan the United States was in a position of strength from both a military and economic standpoint and with Obama we are in a position of weakness.
