sickoflibs wishes we were back in Iraq:
Three weeks to ‘Mission Accomplished’ then 15-20 years to weed out the dissenters/partisans/terrorists and rebuild the nation and then abandon it when the next Dem POTUS takes over after demonizing the idea for years.
This sounds familiar for some reason.
Did abandoning Iraq make any sense?redgolum's America has two modes: firebombing civilians and thinking about firebombing civilians:
We still haven’t “Won” Iraq. Problem is we don’t want to fight like WWII.
We firebombed civilian cities and turned areas into smoking rubble. We broke the will of the people long before we broke their armies.ClearCase_guy knows religious nationalists are easily dissuaded by violence:
I really hate nation building. Our military should be used to break things and to kill people. Make the other nation weaker, and very reluctant to tussle with us ever again. Then leave.
That's victory. That's how wars are won.Road Glide comes right to it:
The only way to “rebuild” Islamic nations — after first defeating them militarily — is to make the -removal- of Islam from those nations priority one.
Just as we “de-Nazified” Germany after World War II, if the West has any hope for survival in the current worldwide struggle, we must de-Islamicize Moslem nations, once and for all.
Otherwise, the West will lose.FreeAtlanta is feeling old style colonial:
The only place we should occupy is their oil fields, pipelines and seaways to get the oil out.
If they have other valuable mineral deposits, then we should mine it and extract it. Leave them with nothing that can help them to fight and kill us later.
If they have nothing, then just bomb and kill their leaders, then leave. Repeat as necessary.nathanbedford thinks Obama's going to invade Iran for electoral reasons:
There is however another war aim which we ought to consider: the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama.
If you want to know our intentions in the Persian Gulf we need not look to our Armed Forces there, our pair of carriers cruising there, or our newly deployed Raptors there as described in the companion news story, we should look instead to today's private sector job numbers, a pathetic 119,000, and know that Friday's job numbers will be toxic for Obama's reelection chances.
Consider Obama's recent ploys: he spikes the football on the anniversary of Obama's assassination; he accuses Romney of cowardice and an inability to pull that trigger; he takes a ride to Afghanistan and appears before the troops and has a speech broadcast back to the nation.
The ground is being prepared, the public conditioned to hail a strike against Iran in time for an October surprise.
As for this president shrinking from violence, nothing could be further from the truth. He is a traditional leftist, the most bloodthirsty ideologues human kind has ever known. On March 4 I wrote the following vanity:
Nevermind the Ides of March Beware the Surprises of Octoberodds, on the other hand, thinks Obama is a secret Muslim slave...?
Every time I look at those pics of Obi bowing to the Saudi King, it reminds me of the Arab tradition of slavery (Servitude) - so Common with their black “servants”, anyhow.
Obi’s African (Keynan?) father would have been one such slave or, worse, servant. Perhaps proud of it.
Obi should have been more proud had he made it to the top job in an Arab land, hey.. even an African one would’ve done. Alas, he had no other choice. Especially with his liking for “Pink”.
“Gholam-Hussein” (Servant of Hussein), as the Saudi Arabs did put it for their “black” and non-black slaves (servants), once upon a time at least, seems only Very appropriate, in Obi’s case.
