Well, at least we rebuilt Iraq's infrastructure and their oil pipelines and electrical grid. Ours are collapsing, but theirs are all good.

The other reason I didn't give Bush my vote the 2nd term. At the very least we should have been refunded through oil.

All Iraqi options are now on the table:

Option #1 - Golf
Option #2 - Martha's Vineyard
Option#3 - Hawaiian Vacation
Option #4 - Tea @ Starbucks.
Option #5 - Fund raising.
Option #6 - Sandwedge or Pitching Wedge
Option #7 - Fairway wood or 3 Iron
Option #8 - Peanut butter and jelly or roast beef
Option #8 - Jay-Z or Beyonce

...."We've sent them, recently, 300 Hellfire missiles, millions of rounds of small arms, thousands of rounds of tank ammunition and these have now been captured along with $430MM in cash. Damn it, that means are are as well equipped as the Chester police force, that is scary.

Already an emergency task force is reviewing whether the carbon signature is beyond Iraqis allowance. Are the B52 bombers sent to the UK running on the $400 a gallon biofuel or not. Is Valeries family affected and should we send in the marines to get them, we don't want another Benghastly now do we, this time we actually care. Are we now due for Kerry to send a sharply worded response to the terrorists. Hagel is preparing to bomb them with Heinz ketchup (purchased a $1MM a bottle) and they will think they are bleeding and they will all lay down and surrender.... Biden made that plan up himself.

What a bunch of clowns, it's embarrassing.

But then there is this to look forward to:

The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.

I did. I said that once we pulled out of Iraq give it a year and they'd be at each others throats again. Sure as *censored*, a year after we left these savages are back to killing one another. It's only going to get worse over there and here's my take on it.

LET THEM KILL ONE ANOTHER. If the US wants to assist in their mutually assured destruction the US can use those bombers to drop some nukes.


Just more proof that the "Pax Americana" is a myth. We keep people controlled with a boot on their neck and wonder out loud "why they hate us".

If North Korea invaded America, how long would you fight them? A week? Or until you were dead?

Almost, ... Kerry is the Heinz Ketchup bomb (just ask Teresa ), and Joe Biden's only plan was to fire a double barreled shotgun in the air so that all the terrorists are sure to run away !

They were asked how many killed & wounded in the last 12 months, unless that is their job why would they know that #, how many in the houses know? The same goes for the cost, that goes up by the minute you don't fight a war by the dollar, Congress appropriates the money but you don't stop & wait until the first of the month to fire back because too much was spent this month. It' a side show at a circus just like the three rings that are used here.

Keep your eyes on the ball. Al-Quida in Pakistan after seeing the rout that ISIS is putting on Iraq decided they could ditch all talks with the Paki government. They are (like every other Terrorist Org. ) is feeling empowered, and this is the issue we will face in the future. We had them on the ropes just a few years ago and they admitted it, my my how things change. Every Military expert predicted this, although even they are surprised at how quickly the Iraqis folded. Caveat, Maliki purged the Sunni commanders ( who were known historically as loyal and fierce) in lieu of Shite's ....hence the civil war rumblings, and Irans willing involvement.


Pakistan is a Nuclear Nation, they have one foot on a banana peel and the other in the grave, that is where we should be looking. Or the Golf Tee...same thing in our Commander in Chiefs eyes.

All of this is the result of projecting a toothless, feckless foreign policy. Obama thinks he's making us more respected in the world. The real result is others step forward to fill the power vacuum. Iranian special forces are now in Iraq "helping". So are some forces from Syria. Obama is really either really evil or incredibly stupid.

I've never been more concerned about the fate of our nation as now. We are literally inviting hundreds of thousands of illegals to stream into the country at our open southern border. Our border patrol and law enforcement are being told to not enforce the law. We traded what amounts to 5 terrorist generals for a wackjob deserter. All done without the 30 days notice to congress as required by law. The list could go on and on. We are now in the center of the whirlpool circling the drain. Better make sure your powder is dry.

I am not sure our country can take another 2 yrs. I cannot believe Obama just stood back and let this happen Well I do believe it. He is the most narcissistic and stupid president ever. I do miss Bush.

Hey, I'll openly admit I'll probably be dead along with my family within the first few days of a North Korean invasion. I own exactly one gun and 170 rounds of ammunition. I won't last long if at all. Knowing my luck they'll land a helicopter or something on my house crushing me instantly. :lol:

Peace through killing, I love that. I say start up the draft again & watch both the exodus & the riots in the streets. It would solve the immigration problem & get rid of a lot of both freeloaders & self called patriots at the same time. One question, just where do the chicken hawks that are so fiscally responsible come up with the billions for these wars, can't fill potholes (if you have paved roads), take care of Vets or feed the poor but no problem attacking a country that we should of had nothing to do with in the first place. But don't worry the oil fields will be safe.
