Of course, what did we expect? The worrisome part is that this will put pressure on the United States to get further involved to try to stop the onward march toward a Muslim caliphate, something in which we should not be involved.

No responses to Iraqi, Syrian Insurgents Declare A Caliphate

    Quote from Joe Biden Feb 2010 “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 American troops come marchin’ home by the end of the summer. You’re gonna see a stable government in Iraq that is actually movin’ toward a representative government. I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months, three months. I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed, how they have been deciding to use the political process, rather than guns, to settle their differences.”

      Yeah, we saw your cut and paste from another article on this site earlier.

      Sorry, but you can’t pass the buck of utter failure on Obama and Biden. However, I’m sure that point won’t get absorbed into your small grey matter.

        It’s obvious you can make ad hominem arguments, Now do something original and defend Joe Biden’s analysis.

          “You’re gonna see 90,000 American troops come marchin’ home by the end of the summer.”-true:) With $1.7 Trillion already spent, plus another $2 Trillion in VA costs, Plus Interest over 50 years = $6 T (most likely $12 T) Americans can’t afford to be teabagged by functional and fiscal illiterates who are always wrong about everything.

        Obama inherited a bad economy from Bush.

        You know what else he inherited from Bush? A stable Iraq.

        • Billy Jackson July 1st, 2014 at 11:57 am

          Yeah, it was about as stable as a bowel reconstructed with tissue paper.

    Finally! A Single Bush & Halliburton Cheney success for subsidiary GOPtp’s parent company -Big Oil! After $6 trillion & 4,484 US KIA in Iraq later ‘The faux oil war will pay itself’ “6 days, six weeks I doubt 6 months. (Suckers!)”-SOD Rummy peaked with their Greedy Oil Party during Nixon’s admin. Teabaggs all around for the 21%-24% remaining registered GOP today.
