BIDEN: I am very optimistic about Iraq. I think it’s gonna be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re gonna see 90,000 troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re gonna see a stable Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government…I’ve been impressed by how they’ve been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”

That was February 11, 2010. A couple of years later, US troops are gone but Iraq is anything but stable. Islamists are successfully taking over its major cities and are on the verge of threatening Baghdad.

Another country further alienated from the U. S. as a direct result of Obama foreign policy.

Hast Tag “#Obamasfault” who could have possibly seen this coming — I mean, he was a community organizer with “all” that experience...I mean, WoW.

I would love to see pictures of Iraqi’s with hand written signs saying #SaveUsObama.

Robert Gates, the former Secty of Defense, stated in his recent book that Biden has been wrong on his position on every foreign affairs situation over the past 30 years.
