It starts. Just like Vietnam. We leave and there came the reds. We leave Iraq and now comes the Izzie murdering thugs. Obama has accomplished his mission. A “free” Iraq will fall to the Izzie bro-hood murdering thugs. Iraq will be a total mess shortly with people dying. Add that too the chosen one’s resume.

"Diwaniya, Central Iraq Hit By Deadly Car Bombings" Police barriers outside the compound of provincial governor Salim Hussein Alwan was targeted by explosions. The governor was not harmed during the explosions. Diwaniya is about 80 miles (130km) south of the capital, Baghdad. Although deadly bombings and shootings still occur on a daily basis but still the rate of violence in Iraq has fallen sharply from its peak in 2006. Most of the victims of the attacks in Diwaniya are reported to be policemen. Dozens more were reported to have been wounded. According to a police official, it appeared the plan was for the bombs to explode as the governor left for work in his convoy of vehicles, but he had been delayed inside the compound. Mr Alwan told the Associated Press news agency: “I was in the garage preparing to leave when the attacker hit the police barrier outside.” According to official, seconds later the second blast took place. http://www.khaama.com/diwaniya-central-iraq-hit-by-deadly-car-bombings

And now those people are at the mercy of their inept army, government and Al Qaeda. God help them.

Cannot help but wonder if some of the violence is false flags out of iran. Targets are saying otherwise from all indications via information, though cannot help but think of iran and what iran stands to gain should the violence escalate. Prayer that I am wrong.

Some information sources are indicating our Military could be brought back in if the existing government invited our Military back into this fray. Some information sources are also indicating our Military was told to leave by the existing government. The violence began quicker than those in the existing government, in Iraq, thought. Heard the sunni had ruled for 1400 years prior to our Military taking saddam down (have not confirmed this report). Have to believe some of this is long standing feuds, mixed with iran believing the best of all situations now exist for their revenge for the past war, coupled with ongoing chaos which pulls attention away from iran, or so iran would think. iran is going to find, if involved in false flags, themselves between a rock and very hard place, should false flag be proved. (imho)

The gov’t (backed by Iran) wanted us to leave. The people were afraid this would happen.
Obama will not send troops back unless there is all out massacre and a deafening outcry here that we do it.
He will put it off and wait to see how the election goes.

Full agreement, though (imho) if false flag is proved another sign of the course of action to be taken would become clearer, or would it? No proof of false flag yet, though would think some are looking who were trained how to look, or there could be another false flag setup and a false report could be given with false proof. With the situation being fluid, indications and proof provided would have to be taken with a ton of salt while all setups and all information would remain suspect. Doubting zer0 or our media will tell the truth if this goes the way of an all out massacre.

That is the 864 billion dollar question who would pay. Americans and our Military families paid dearly for naught it is beginning to appear. From my point of view here, not interested in paying anymore, though if zer0 sees an opportunity, to help himself, he would do what he does and take advantage (imho). A prayer for the coming year and years.

“....and a deafening outcry here that we do it.”

Maybe from the likes of McCain and Graham but otherwise, I just don’t see that happening. I think Americans are pretty much done with Islamic nations now and will be content to simply let them have at each other.

Sure would be helpful if we would stop importing their “refugees” and begin drilling for our own oil though.

Right. We leave and the violence starts. We go back in and more Americans die and America goes even more broke.

I have a better idea — let’s drill for our own oil, and shut down our borders until these ignorant sub humans finish each other off. That way, everybody wins.

Now, you’ll see a bombing in America, a repeat of 9-11. They’ll probably time it to be early 2013, I’d imagine, and a big one.

Okay. That shouldn't raise eyebrows when I order my Fender. (Solid Body Fender & a Semi Hollow Body Ric makes sense)
Now I kind of favor the red 'Fireglo' color Ric. Is that good by you?

Can’t be. President Miserable Failure Obama declared the war over. His kind of liberal insisted that the terrorist attacks were happening because of US presence in their “muslim” nation.

Obama lied, people died.

I’m just glad no more American troops died. We can’t afford Eternal Occupation anyway. Taxbongo adhering to Bush’s exit date and getting our troops the hell out of that 3rd world hellhole is the only thing the stupid Kenyan Marxist has gotten right. A blind Kenyan finds an acorn every now and then, I guess.

Exactly. It was a stupid idea to think a bunch of 3rd World Flintstonians would want a 1st world stable country in the first place.

NO MORE STUPID NATION BUILDING.

As much as I want to blame Obama, it was George W Bush who signed the agreement that all US forces would be withdrawn this month.

The moment that Bush signed off on the agreement for that exit date, the radicals started planning on tearing Iraq apart when we finally left.

I predict unfortunately that more will die next year than all of the last ten.
Maybe even sooner, the Islamic bloodlust Brotherhood will need to invade
and take over so fast that nobody will have any chance of intervening.
In fact there is nobody to intervene.

Iraq is dead of any chance. Thugs will prevent any commerce and the President
will be on the run for his life.
