Well,then we need to attack Obama for his pro socialist POLITICS then,not his alleged ethnicity.
Its a cheap shot and one could ask why we have 150,000 of our best men and women over in Iraq now protecting a bunch of ARAB MUSLIMS!
Do tell me how that works out for you...in, say, 10 years' time.
Iraq is and always has been about geopolitical strategy regarding Iran and its ultimate political isolation and/or the destruction of its theocracy. The fact that the people in Iraq are Muslims is quite irrelevant to the strategy and the goal. A tactical problem, and a knotty one, certainly, but the Iraqis could just as well be Confucians without affecting for a moment the validity of the strategy.
It's also invariably a policy bonus to kill off a murderous and tyrannical regime, and give ANY people a shot at running their own nation. Who knows, in this case, they might become ''moderate'' Muslims after a time. Or not. If not, nothing lost there, other than unfortunately a lot of our good men and women. If so, enormous rewards portend.
Yes, before you ask, geopolitically I'm quite cynical. Please note that Iraq is NOT a strategy that can be used more than once -- so we'd better get it right the first time. I'd rate it about 50/50 success/failure just now, but I'd rate the expectation (look up the term) considerably higher.
FReegards to you!
