Because like all good commies (W included), he loves a good foreign intervention.

Bwahahahahahahahaha!!! Watch out, ISIS will be rolling through Nebraska next Tuesday! Everybody grab their muskets! To arms! To arms!

Actually there were a lot more people voicing opposition to it than you’d like to believe. Almost every nuclear nonproliferation and weapons expert said Saddam had no nukes, and that the likelihood of him obtaining them was slim to none.
But let’s take your line of thought and run with it shall we? 97% of scientists in the world believe man-made global warming is real and actually happening. Will you go along with them? I mean, it’s the majority right?

Actually Obama hasn’t. His wars in Pakistan, Somalia, Lybia, etc. haven’t helped, but it was W who had the biggest hand in turning th Middle East into jihadistan. It’s important to lay blame where it properly belongs. That’s the only way we can ever learn, right?
August 17, 2015 at 11:38am
That’s a complete and total lie. “Victory” in Iraq was never achieved. We never got the utopian democracy the W said we’d get. The Bush administration repeatedly changed its story to fit the current situation and you know it. Sectarian violence would go down and W would say, “See! This is proof the insurgency is in it’s final throws!” But then sectarian violence would go right back up and they would change their story again and say, “See! The insurgency is giving us all they’ve got which obviously means they’re in their final throws!” Your hero changed his story again and again and again and again, and you bought all of it.
Victory was never achieved. Peace was never won. That narrative pushed by the neocons is an absolute farce and anyone actually paying attention knows it.

Has anyone ever stopped to consider that Iranian hard-liners only chant “Death to America” because the warhawks and neocons in this country continually threaten to bomb them? This despite the fact that Iran has never invaded another country.
Careful there NO MORE WAR PLEASE, you are going off the "'Merica good, everyone else bad" script.
Hmmm, didn't I read that Saddam Hussein used mustard gas on Iran to repel their army? Or has that history been erased?
Give me a minute to think about that....................
Nope, don't care.
1979 US Embassy invasion and hostage seizure = act of war
Two US embassy bombings = act of war
1983 Marine Barracks bombing = act of war
1996 Khobar Towers bombing = act of war
Iranian IEDs,arms and training to Afghan and Iraq insurgents = act of war.
Saudi ambassador assassination plot = act of war
Numerous Non-Proliferation Treaty violations,engaging in nuclear weapons work. Discussion of EMP attack on the US at least 20 times.
We have PLENTY of justification for dropping bombs into Iran.

Brought to you courtesy of George W. Bush’s war in Iraq.
You do realize that Bush has not been president for nearly 7 years right and that it is this president that has turned the middle east into even more of a hell-hole than it was before?
Sooo... why did NOT O'SHARIABUTZKISSER-in-DIKTATOR... [STOP] the wars, if THEY were SOOOO-BAD??
And Obamma's mucking it up.
Jeebus Effin Xmas, just how stupid are you? Bush's war in Iraq was WON. Hands down. Country largely pacified and elections being held, the place starting to make a name as a TOURIST DESTINATION. It was that imbecile in the Oval Office now who evacuated our troops too soon just so he could say, "Yup, I bringed 'em home!" And THAT is when the current fustercluck began, you lackwit.
You mean the war that was supported by all but a few stragglers in congress, 90% of the American people at its inception, and supported by dozens of countries around the world? You mean that war?
Oh please............... give it a rest.
No more war please? You'll be the first one begging for the US Marines to come and save this nation OR, you'll be the first one to stand up and say to the invaders, I was against these wars. Traitor scumbag.
@ no mo waaarr purty please-dumbest $h!t I ever seen any body post on here.

The U.S. sold weapons to Iraq when they were fighting Iran. So does that mean that Iran should sanction the U.S.?
EPIC FAIL ......... you can't even post your lies with accuracy.
We sold weapons to Iraq. You back those that best at a point represent who is best to deal with a common enemy. A principle as old as mankind.
[-1] August 13, 2015 at 10:53pm
More money that was theirs to begin with. You forgot that caveat.
Care to explain why the international community confiscated it?
Or doesn't your thinking expand that far?

These people wouldn’t know hypocracy if it slapped them in the neocon faces. Cruz is the ultimate definition of a hyprocrite. I’m pretty sure if you looked up that work in Webster’s dictionary you’d see his picture next to it.
What you need to do is go to Iran and protest in the streets demanding NO MORE WAR.
I find it insulting that You seem to think we are the cause for every war and somehow if we just stand down so will the enemy.
So before You go to Iran please organize all your peace loving friends and march in the streets of your town shouting "Death To Iran" so they know you'll be coming to look for peace.
He was following the legal orders of the lawfully appointed commanders. It’s not like he was some rogue or mercenary. If you have a problem with the combat zone, take it up with your elected legislators. But DON’T -DON’T YOU DARE – blame the guy or girl who goes into harms way on the LAWFUL orders of LAWFULLY appointed leaders. YOU DON’T GET THAT RIGHT!!! And just remember, we are now seeing who the real ‘baby killers’ the real ‘rapists’ and the real ‘war criminals’ are; a clue for you bubby, it ain’t the US forces! From a 3rd generation military vet, who’s part of a family of FOUR generations of veterans protecting YOUR right to be a total @$$ wagon.

Still no different than Petraeus spilling his book of CIA secrets so that he could get his weaner wacked.
Both of them should get life in prison.

Conservatives are wrong on pretty much everything having to do with foreign policy — even when it comes to their idol Ronaldus Magnus the Great. Reagan was not a chickenhawkn in the same way that all neocons would like to imagine him as. After, the marines were massacred in Lebanon, he pulled all U.S. troops out of the area.nin his memoirs he explained that it wasn’t worth spending American lives in countries whose politics were so irrational.
Additionally, it was William Hayward (a close adviser to Reagan) who claimed that Reagan had told him in a private meeting once that “these sons of b-tches want me to send the army everywhere! But I am not going to have 50,00 troops in Nicaragua!”
So even on Reagan, the chickenhawkn neocons are dead wrong.
Jimmie Carter was was/is such an intellectual giant in leadership, they should put his face on Rushmore!
What nonsense. You are not a scholar of history & have no idea what you are talking about. You are a hack -an Obamanista hack. And in typical liberal fashion you change subjects when you are on the losing end of a fact based discussion. What's next calling us all racists & mocking Christianity? How boring and predictable.
August 5, 2015 at 7:06pm
Has nothing to do with taking Iran’a word. If you had actually read the deal you’d know that, instead of the talking points you’re getting straight out of Tel Aviv. This deal is entirely backed up by UN IAEA inspections. From the moment Iran’s uranium is mined out of the ground it will be subject to constant inspection by the IAEA. Every facet of Iran’s nuclear program will undergo scrutiny and inspection from every country signatory to this deal. Stop falling for the paranoia and fearmongering propaganda. Learn a little bit!
Oh No! Not the facts, anything but the factses! Please, no! The facts they burn my ears!
And we all know how trustworthy the UN has been.
You know we would like to read it but we can't. And neither can you - you arrogant moron. The agreements that govern the inspection protocols are secret (the side deals). Even senators, who are being asked to vote on this giveaway, can't read it -that in and of itself is absurd. So why don't you stop getting your talking points from the land of rainbows (the White House) and unicorns (Teheran).

Let’s be honest with ourselves for just a moment here. Yes, Chrs Kyle was extraordinarily good at killing people, BUT he also did so in an illegal, unconstitutional war. So that makes him the invader and the murderur. Also, we know that he lied about a lot of things in his personal memoir, American Sniper (there’s a reason Jesse Ventura sued him for defamation…AND WON). This makes Kyle a liar on top of things. Not exactly the picture of a Christian hero.
NoMoWoe! You are like the rainbow platypus any more. What do you do when not violently decrying the actual nature of man? We miss the code pink angle and usually are now just left with old soy/Cindy and the standard trolls. Hope you are well and don't run across any gangs or jihad in your pink travels. They could really crap on your NoMoWoe outlook.
Ugh you piss me off. No it wasn't illegal and unconstitutional. We voted go go into Iraq and Afghanistan both times. I don't particularly agree that we went in but it's still legal
No we don't know he lied and I doubt you know much about how and why JV was awarded the money. Blame Washington DC for our presence over seas, don't blame the ones "serving". That alone shows how ignorant and misinformed you are. Don't expect everyone to jump to your conclusions when calling a person a liar unless you walked in their shoes.
DLV....I wonder what No More War has to say about Obama's wars and drone strikes. I guess those are legal even though there were never voted on.
Popp from past statements he doesn't like either
4 out of 5 tools agree you too are a tool.
And you are a left wing nut, who would have left Hitler over-run this country. You would have been a coward at any time. You probably deny the Holocaust. You simply have no character, guts, or integrity. What a lowly coward and cheap shot artist you are. Go join Michael Moore and go live in Russia.
Back to your basement and your blow up sex dolls you moron. It was NOT an "illegal" war, and it was NOT "unconstutitional" CIte the section and and paragraph MAKING it "unconstitutional". DO be AWARE that CONGRESS voted almost 100% in favor of the war and GUESS WHO is CONSTITUTIONALLY empowered to approve of and declare war. SHISH , nothing but a liberal moron spewing his lack of education.
Delusional response. I pray that you will find help. God Bless
"Illegality" and "unconstitutionality" are no longer things to avoid. In fact, our president regards them very little even though he used to teach the subject of the constitution. You need to evolve from this concept of Constitutionality and illegality like our president evolved on homosexuality, gay marriage and abortion.
Sorry but the war was not illegal and it wasn't unconstitutional. You people scream that crap like it is fact but it just isn't. Democraps just like republicans voted for the use of force which means that it wasn't unconstitutional and although the WMD that was thought to be there had already been moved to Syria, there was WMD found just because it wasn't nukes doesn't mean that you get to make up your own facts.

LOL! “We bombed and killed a whole bunch of innocent people in WWII, so what’s the big deal?!?” When will you conservatards learn that the whole “two wrongs makes a right” argument is not a valid defense? Can you imagine the horror and disgust if Mexico bombed America and was achieving a civilian casualty rate of 80% and higher? Lol, the media wouldn’t be able to shut up about it. But whatever, it’s just a bunch of brown people, right? Yeah, screw those guys…
[-4] January 11, 2015 at 2:27pm
Lol, if an 80% civilian casualty rate doesn’t qualify as apartheid, you’re probably either a sociopath or a conservative. Now that I think about it…is there any difference between the two?
[-2] January 11, 2015 at 2:23pm
Ok good, so your auguing that Bush was/is just like Obama. How does that validate your argument again?
 January 11, 2015 at 2:21pm
Hahahaha, more like “bankruptcy and selling out our liberties and freedoms for empire is coming to you!” Lol, quit with fearmongering. If anything America is less free today because you sat silently by while Bush robbed us of our liberty. But hey, anything to kill a few brown people, right?

Let’s discuss this: did the French government’s actions in Mali and Libya motivate these attacks?
it appears the discussion is not going to happen - but that would be the reasonable thing to do based on the article.
note that when Benghazzi happened, conservatives did not believe government narrative….But when it is done by random ‘terrorists’ in this case, then they automatically believe the narrative…..Or was it just automatic opposition based on Obama being president?
Nothing to do with Libya nor Mali. What did the folks at Charlie Hebdo have to do with either country? It had everything to do with Jihad, "avenging the prophet", and killing Jews.
It doesn't matter because Islam has always been at odds with the west. The actions of France and the west are just an excuse to make the attack on CH justifiable. News flash it's not.
