(The Guardian Express)   U.S. troops could return to the Middle East to train Iraqi soldiers. What do we need to train them for? We've been fighting them for more than ten years and still haven't been able to beat them   (guardianlv.com) divider line 15

It's not that we can't beat soldiers.  Our military is the best in the world at killing people and breaking things.  No standing army has a chance!  It's playing police that they utterly fail at.

>The U.S. Congress is wary of sectarian violence breaking out along the shiate and Sunni factions which was a catalyst to send  U.S. troops into Iraq during the Iraq War. 

Wait, WHAT?

What the fark alternative universe is this guy coming from? The Sunni / Shia shiat storm only broke out AFTER America decided to free the hell out of Iraq. Sure, Saddam was being nasty to the Shia, but it wasn't a patch on the recent violence.

I'm not saying Iraq wasn't a shiat sandwich under Hussein, but America peeled off the bread and crapped all over it.

ShawnDoc: LZeitgeist: Smeggy Smurf: Wasn't Fartbongo saying we had Al-Qaeda on the run not too long ago?

See, this is the most retarded nickname ever created.

What is the phonetic logic that gets from O-BA-MA to FART-BONG-O? It makes no farking sense.

Can somebody explain how this bit of stupidity was generated?

A lot of anti-Obama and birthers don't like using his real name and like to use childish nicknames for him. So during a Fark thread a long time back farmers were mocking them and trying to come up with the next stupid nickname, and someone suggested fartbongo and it caught on.


Plenty of people still refer to him as Barry Soetero

The problem is the rules of engagement.  If we let our troops fight with the ferocity that the Department of Education SWAT team uses on our own citizens who might (or might not) owe on their student loans, Iraq would be as tame as downtown Duluth on a Tuesday morning.  Problem is, we never hit foreign enemies as hard as we hit our own people.

I have an idea. let's have the oil and contracting companies that had us go in there and secure long term contracts for them in the first place do it.

It won't be US Troops, it'll be private US contractors. Those wonderful free-market private contractors that we all know and love.

Besides, the troops have too much to do proving PTSD and getting weed prescriptions.

Because we've been doing it wrong, trying to fight a culture-based conflict with military force.

We were fighting  against them?!  I thought we were fighting  for them, or rebuilding them, or some such

/On May 1, 2003 the mission  was accomplished. We should have left.  But then all of a sudden they started talking about "rebuilding".  Nobody said anything about rebuilding in the run up to war, but for over a decade, we've been rebuilding the damage caused from a war that lasted all of twelve days.
