My friend what a screwed up context you weave. Mission accomplished was before the surge. The surge worked. Iraq was secure. Bush came up with 2014 as a pull out date in 2008 but that didn't mean Obama couldn't have changed it six years later. With all his great insight into the world why couldn't he figure out that pulling out all the troops would leave a vacuum of power and allow the Sunnis to go crazy. Leaving was an even bigger mistake then going in. Obama is fully to blame. Frankly I think Obama is complicit. I think he wants to set up a chaotic situation so he can call off the 2016 elections and stay in power. Have a nationwide marshal law put in place. Confiscate the guns, heard the non believers into camps for reorientation and change America forever. .
Iraq was lost when Obama pulled out the troops. We had it won up until then. Oh ya right Bush had already agreed that we would pull out. Funny the Democrats took his advice on that but everything else is Bush's fault. We left troops in Germany to clean up the #$%$'s. If we hadn't they would have probably reemerged as something new like ISIS. It also confounds everyone that Hilliary and Barack still call it ISIS. Don't they know what the first I in ISIS stands for. No probably not.
