All that time and money and most importantly all those precious American lives have been wasted.
They’ll always be inhuman savages. No more lies of spreading democracy with American blood in their god-forsaken countries.
Obamah, in a year, will have given the world a radicalized islamic Egypt, Libya, Syria and with all troops removed from Iraq, it too will fall victim to islamic radicalization.
That's some foreign policy you have there Bari.
What was the refrain back in the 60s? Give Peace a Chance? Iraq will soon erupt in wave after wave of sectarian violence.
Years ago I took the trash out. Bottom of the bag ripped open and one T-Bone fell out. Unfortunately, I had two Dobermans. Never ever, drop One T-Bone in front of TWO Dobermans! This, in a nut-shell, is what will soon happen in Iraq. I of course hope I'm wrong....
George Orwell said, “The fastest way to end an war is to lose it.”
The leftists, despite their protests of love for people, don’t care about those left behind. I noticed no great upset with them over all those people left behind in Vietnam when we left - remember the long line of people in Saigon trying to get on helicopters?
To this day I am convinced one of the reasons Asians are a minority that leftists don’t care about, is because they are a reminder of a people the left abandoned - that and because, of course, they are capitalists and work hard.
Now hold on a minute there TC...
While I agree that Carter wasn’t the greatest or strongest of Presidents of the US, I do not agree that “Jimmy Carter gave us a radicalized Islamic Iran.”
Arab spring and a Muslim brotherhood uprising is just around the corner
In Iraq, it’s the beginning of the end of the beginning and Obama knows it.
I'll second that!
When this sectarian violence spreads I hope the Kurds can cut themselves out a country of their own. -tom
Yes. But we had to try.
It's what we do.
Next time, flatten all the infrastructure, split the country along ethnic/tribal lines, set them at each other's throats, and leave.
It is accomplishing exactly what the man who says he will 'stand with the muslims, should the political winds shift in a ugly direction' intended.
You know, The Won who said he thought the evening call to prayer was "the most beautiful sound on earth"
You should be pleased to meet him, hope you catch his name...
Obama owns it.
By the time the election comes around, the violence will be in full swing. The Pubbies can run videos of violence in the street, then remind everyone that the video is actually of Iran, back when Jimmy Carter was President. ‘Nuf said.
I have to say this:
As long as the muslims want to kill each other , Let them.
Better they kill each other than Americans.
We are out, STAY OUT. get out of Afghanistan and let that bunch go back to the 10th. century too.
He was instrumental in the removal of the Shah, crucial to the installation of the Ayatollah, then ineffectually tried to get our embassy staff back while making appeasing surrender noises.
What turn of phrase would you use?
Such is life in the Arab world.
Family vs. Family
Clan vs. Clan
Tribe vs. Tribe
Sect vs. Sect
Sunni vs Shia
Muslim vs. Everyone else
Hubris to believe we could change that.
As long as our troops are gone and did not die in this one I don’t give a rat’s ass.
Yeah... the Shah was a dictator... well persians and arabs need a dictator... a Strong Man that all fear... it keeps the tribes from eating one another. One can see how peanut head nurtured the birth of modern radical islam. Refusing to attack iran with all of our assets when they seized our Embassy and people for 1/3 of his Administration. The signs were all over that a violent revolution was brewing before the return of the mullachracy... and yet carter did nothing to close our Embassy or fortify it with what it needed to make an attack too painful to succeed. He did nothing to help the Shah crush this rebellion. In fact... he did everything to encourage the mullahs to start their jihad to caliphate. obama is even worse... all of these things that I post about carter doing... are being implemented by obama as well.
I lived through those times and they seem like yesterday... America was weak and demoralized... our Military incapable under carter of mounting a successful rescue mission... Dead Heroes sent out without what they needed... all due to carter mandates... but the Israelis shown the world at Entebbe that it is possible to carry out an action like this successfully.
carter is the father of radical islam... Reagan pulled us back from the brink... we need a Reagan today... we do not have the good fortune to have another Reagan to lead us once again into the light. Now we are going to see all of the blood and treasure invested in iraq fall to a nation that we have been at war with since 1979.
Darn, I hate always being right when it comes to defining POTUS Obama as a total failure. But....I really thought it would take about six months for Iraq to unwind into chaos and revolution. Iran is on the march, and.....will have Iraq for breakfast, rather then lunch.with many thanks going to POTUS Barack Hussein (The Muslim Brotherhood) Obama, the destroyer of the American republic.
Hate to say I told you so....but the honest truth is the real truth!!! And.....kiss the entire Middle East and North Africa goodbye, starting with the Obama giveaways of Egypt and Libya!!! Yep, America, you got just what you voted for, a true, blue brother of the Muslim Brotherhood, Barack Hussein Obama!!!
“Next time, flatten all the infrastructure, split the country along ethnic/tribal lines, set them at each other’s throats, and leave.”
You mean what Joe Biden suggested?
“Hubris to believe we could change that.”
It was not like that when they had a strong dictator.
You will!!! Think you are safe and sound here!!! Dream on!!! Ever hear of 911 & Pearl Harbor!!! You are like the America of 1930s that thought and believed Hitler and the Japanese would never attack the USA. Shame on you!!! You sound like an Obamabot living in never, never land!!!
He stole that from me. </grumpy voice>
Absolutely positively correct
My Friend, You , too, have a Merry Christmas!!! Me, I could care less about Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Pakistan, Afghanistan. etc. Why? I’m the over the hill gang, and have had a great life in America and around the world!!! I worry for my children and my eight grandchildren that are going through a world where America soon will be under attack constantly by enemies enabled, supported and abetted by our own POTUS Barack Hussein Obama.
I have spent much time in the Middle East, and.....believe me I know what is coming, sad to say. What really ticks me off is that we voted America hater & destroyer Barack Hussein Obama into office!!!
I’m just surprised it took ‘em that long to start killing each other..
I hope you don't mean by "we" that you voted for Obama.
And I see here talk of Iraq descending into chaos. That implies there was some ascending. I haven't perceived much ascension from those peeplism's in the last 1300 years. All I see now is the SSDD.
Time to get out of the middle of them and let them go at each other and do us all a favor. If they get distracted and try to hit us as well, we hit them back HARD in response - just as we initially did in Afghanistan - then get out. Time to stop bleeding to death slowly over in their 10th century hell holes, trying to nation build with barbarians who are not collectively capable of building anything.
Despite the potential talents of a relative handful of individuals that have risen out of the repressive stink of moslem culture, a majority willing to do what it takes to maintain a democratic, civilized society is NOT going to emerge in any of these places we've been entrenched in.
by bailing out over there aren’t we just inviting them to make America their new battlefield? - just asking!!
No sooner do our boots leave the ground, than the Religion of Pieces begins blowing people up again. The only question is, how long will it take Al Qaeda to completely take over Iraq?
Carter sure didn't do anything to prevent it, and in fact, everything he did do, only spurred on the radical Islamist takeover of that country.
Many of us here remember Jimmy Carter's disastrous blunders with Iran, all too well. It was one of the reasons he lost so badly to Reagan in 1980.
“All that time and money and most importantly all those precious American lives have been wasted.”
No, they haven’t. That’s an awful thing to say.
How has it all NOT been a waste? Our brave people died to give the Iraqi's a free and modern nation and they've squandered it. Iraq will be a battle zone again in a month. Iran will take over with the puppet Maliki. It's all been a waste!
The same is true in Afghanistan. Obmama and Biden are just dying to make nice with the taliban. They'll turn the country over to those blood thirsty pigs and they'll turn the place into a blood bath.
Pray he will be voted out next year. I also worry about my girls. What kind of future will they have in this country. Will they know how great it was and how I enjoyed it growing up. We shall see!
“A wave of at least 14 bombings ripped across Baghdad Thursday morning, killing at least 60 people in the worst violence in Iraq for months”
Isn’t that special? I have an idea-—let’s bring as many muslims as possible to the US and support them so that they will live in peace and harmony with us.
Are you crazy??? Only kidding, of course!!! No.......I did not vote for Obama, and....never would or will. I knew exactly what this “dirt bag” was from day one!!! I am forever mad at John McCann for not exposing “the Muslim Brotherhood” master Muslim and number one America hater for what Obama is.
And......if Black American Christians continue to support Obama, they are nothing less then fools, feeding at the gate of a flim/flam man. He is not their friend, never was....and never will be!!!
The Marxist one is bringing in as many as possible.
By mid-century there will be at least 50M Muslims scum in our Republic. They will cause a lot of hell.
Okay, I’m with you but why not also say that the Vietnam war gave us President Carter? Iran would’ve turned for the worse anyway. The Shah had terminal cancer. Khomeini was an opportunist who may not have needed Carter.
Remove Carter's name from your statement and insert 0bama's name.
The mistakes made by Carter are planned by 0bama
Indeed they are... and great minds and all that!
Lotta maybes in your post. What we know for a fact, is that Carter exacerbated the troubles that Iran was going through, during his presidency.
I missed the ‘76 vote by three months. I had a good full time job by mid-’78 and moved out for the first time with some friends by the end of that year. I had little understanding of why people were upset with Carter but for their complaining about interest rates (”...Don’t you know the prime rate’s going up, up, UUUUP..!”), the energy crisis, the first CAFE standards controversy, the Iranian “Death to America”/hostage situation/rescue mission debacle and the 1980 Olympics boycott. I complained right along with them but only from a surface perspective. Walter Cronkite was a grandfather figure. Other than that...
For me, the genie was out of the bottle by the time Clinton’s impeachment had ramped up...then it was Bush vs Gore and Y2K, 9/11, war in Iraq, elections ‘02-’10, Obama, the Tea Party, etc.
Looking back on it, I guess I didn’t know that I didn’t know as much as I could’ve but since the genie IS out of the bottle, there are always more dots to connect between then and now.
That’s why I like this site and others like it, the EIB Network, FNC, my local conservative radio programs in Detroit (WJR/760am) and if only I knew then what I know now...
Screw that! It just feels good to know that when I see the footage and hear reports of the Occupy situations, I think of how glad I am that it isn’t me but it ain’t over until it’s over.
Nowadays, I think being anti-establishment is the ordure of the day and if knowledge is power then bring it on because I’m ready for “takin’ it to the street” if need be.
I was married to my high school sweetheart and living in my first apartment in '73, so I guess I had a five year head start on you. By the time Jimmy Carter was elected, I had a toddler at home, and was working a very good paying job. I had little time or interest for politics, but I well recall all of the high (or low) notes of Carter's presidency.
Most of my contemporaries suffered the ill effects of the rotten Carter economy in those years, but I was spared the pain, due to the excellent income I made during that time.
Even though I sort of flew above all that, I was nevertheless extremely disappointed in Carter. For the first time in my life, I had a president whom I could not respect, due to his weakness and inability to lead. He never seemed to be in charge, from my observation, but seemed to be buffeted and pushed to and fro by domestic and international events.
If I, as a busy twenty-something could see that, I'm sure that my more observant elders saw much worse. It's no wonder that he lost to Reagan in a landslide of historic proportions in 1980.
As for Carter being responsible for Iran's slide into a Mullahcracy, and the rise of Islamic radicalism, I don't think there's any question that his abject weakness was a green light that emboldened that violent movement.
When the Iranians released our hostages on the night that Reagan won the election, it boldly underscored that perception.
