And the Neville Chamberlain memorial award goes to...
Both of the comments could have been parodies on "Saturday Night Live" ... It was arrogant thinking by the Bush administration to think the could bring a democratic peace to a place as volatile as Iraq ... Meanwhile Obama should have known better to try to smooth over something that had continued to fester underneath ... He got most of the military out of the region ... what he should have did is pull EVERYBODY out and left that cesspool to their own devices ... no outside influence is ever gonna change what goes on in those Middle East countries short of nuking it all, let it cool off then start establishing colonies there in 500 or so years
It was stable....for about 10 days. BTW I think that's a record of some kind for the region.
"W" probably thought that the mission he envisioned in Iraq was accomplished. <br />
BO on the other hand knew that there was nothing stable or self reliant about Iraq. If he has truly believed what he said, we wouldn't still have troops there...... we wouldn't still be sending arms and spending billions of dollars there.
Since we don't know for certain what "W"s goals were , we can't attribute anything negative to his statement. However, since action speak much more loudly than words, we know that BO was attempting to mislead the public once again. For OB, it worked, someone on CNN the other evening mentioned that a majority of Americans mistakenly believe that there are no longer American troops on the ground in Iraq.
Iraq had a hand in it. Financial and other support partially originated in Iraq. The country had allowed members of terrorist groups to recruit and train there. The main reasons for the Second Gulf War was retaliation for 9/11 and to finish the job that "HW" didn't finish.
The proof of what?
Why can't the US just leave those people to their own devices? Ike tried to warn us.
lol there's too much oil over there!
A man can dream.
Idk, is there any truth there?
they are all liars
