SlothB77: President Obama later urged Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to accept American troops in Iraq after 2011, but after the Iraqis would not grant a status of forces agreement that would grant certain immunities to American soldiers, the U.S. military advised Obama to completely pull out of Iraq.

should have granted that status of forces agreement.


So Iraq was supposed to be a democratically-elected republic over which the US would hold sovereignty? Do you not perceive the mutual exclusivity? Or have you been watching too much Fox?

Saborlas: what_now: Fox News Praises Marie Antoinette Empathy for the Less Fortunate

Wrong person. The phrase was possibly invented by Jean-Jacques Rousseau in his dubious autobiography, or created by the peasantry to libel her (she had to put up with a LOT of libel). There's no evidence Antoinette ever said it.


We do always enjoy seeing that Fun-At-Parties Guy has weighed in.

Satanic_Hamster: I've noticed that right wing themed troll accounts seem to have largely stayed out of this thread, even with 100 comments in.

Right wingers; doesn't this level of bullshiat ever just embarrass you?  Even a little?

svanmeter: All the finger pointing at this point amounts to taking your eye off the ball. The true question here is Obama acting to protect OIL interest$, or is he being played for a fool by the Iranians to attack their Sunni enemies for them?


So you're refocusing us by pointing a finger at Obama?  I'm really not following your post at all.

If you think Obama is relevant to the ongoing unraveling of Iraq at this point you're really deluding yourself.

There would have been a strong possibility of this happening even if we had fully committed ourselves to Operation Enduring Occupation.  Regardless of who sits in the White House.

Well, compared to what we have now, Bush was frickin' psychic (okay, he only has to be reasonably competent to outpace this administration).  Bush looks better and better everyday Obama is president.  Yesterday, half the apologists for Obama claimed no one could have seen this coming when he pulled troops out and the other half said it's obvious that the absence of Saddam left a huge power vacuum that would lead to this.   Somehow "unpredictably obvious" is something Joe Biden or John Kerry might say as a legitimate response to incompetence.

So you see nothing at all wrong or disingenuous in deliberately creating a problem, sitting back and "predicting" the consequences of the problem you created, and receiving praise for your "insight?"

You really are a one-note moron.  I hope Bush appreciates your fellatio skills.

Oh, and how was Fark wrong?  I've been around here a looong time and we all pretty much concluded Iraq was farked.

My 401(k), the stock markets, the employment rate, and the reduced deficit says what? The only way you'd say Bush were better was if you wanted the markets to fail, and unemployment to rise, and the deficit to skyrocket.

And we haven't even talked about the number of Americans killed on their respective watches, have we. It's like comparing apples to two Boeings flown into skyscrapers.

Mikey1969: This is kind of like the arsonist telling the fire crew that the fire might flare up again if they don't get all of the hot spots as he hops in his car and bails...


Plus the firefighters leaving a smoking, smoldering heap and saying "Were done" and heading home

The best thing about these threads is that nobody has learned from the ostensibly ground breaking presidency of Barack Obama, black guy, that it don't matter if a stick of butter is president, and it hasn't since 1980.  The president's job is to hold the goose while the grease goes through it and be the public opinion dartboard.
