    I was against Iraq war. I said it would be like busting a hornet's nest with a stick. I knew the evidence of WMD was hyped, anyone closely following news knew the tubes and yellow cake stories were disproved. I thought disbanding army and police was a mistake. I thought we should allow local democratic governments like townships and wards to organize be responsible for local needs, then send delegate representatives to a larger body. I thought the Biden 3 semi-autonomous Kurd, Sunni, Shia regions a good idea. I thought Maliki agreement was another Vietnamization. I never voted for Bush, I did vote for Obama who abided by Bush's agreement. How am I and the the POTUS lumped into the people who failed and lost Iraq? News people should just mention actual history to Senators McCain and Graham and all the other Neocons.

    The past, present, and future are equally compelling; none of the three are easily understood.

      If you gave Sen. McCain's words the attention he assumes they deserve, you'd understand that Iraq was an American "success" that Pres. Obama has squandered away.  And that Pres. Obama needs to get rid of his national security team and bring back the succeeders.

        is for Obama to agree with them.

        He should just say - 'they might be right' and poof! They'll immediately change their minds.

        Oh wait... that would mean they'd have to agree with us pulling our troops out. And that going in wasn't the best idea in the first place.

        Oh wait... can't do that, that means we agree with Obama.

        Oh wait...

        Just hook them to a generator, and we'd have unlimited energy from them spinning so fast.
