Up for Debate: Last U.S. troops leave Iraq

Sunday, December 18, 2011 at 11:48pm

Reflecting back on the war in Iraq as the last U.S. combat troops have left the country, what are your thoughts? Was the war that cost the U.S. about $1 trillion and some 4,500 Americans worth the outcome? Are the U.S., Iraq and the world better because of it?

How can any one have an answer to unproven propaganda posted by a dumb old coot?

Question... again: How can you accept someone as president of this nation not even knowing who the hell they are? That, to me, spells "stupid as hell".

Re-reading your comment arguing unproven propaganda: How much "proof" do you need? Simply encourage the usurper to admit his guilt? One more time -

The facts are facts. The laws are laws. You, and your fellow posters are one of two things: You are ignorant of the facts and won't accept them, or you are also in the communist party with him.

As noted before, "Obama"'s paternal side of his family are Muslims. That included his paternal stepfather. The maternal side of his family were communists as were all of the friends of his grandparents and mother.

At the age of 18, his mother could not pass her American citizenship to him by law. His father was a subject of the British Empire. Barack Obama could only have been born as a British subject to his father.

Had to go.

To finish what I started: Barack Obama could only be an American citizen based on the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. At best, he could only receive dual citizenship. That is not the "natural born" status.

That is the reason our founders made that requirement for the office... so no one could be in that office with dual love for nations.

And when he makes a comment about being glad to be back home should make you wonder where "home" is.

Any why did his wife make the statement about traveling through Africa to visit his homeland of Kenya?

Just a speech comment? I don't think so.

Wow, this birther thing has destroyed Yogi's mind, or what is left of it. There must be millions of brain-dead Yogi's out there....the Tea Baggers, funded by the racist Koch brothers, did a great job of convincing the weak-minded that this black president of ours is not legitimate, but is a cheating, lying, usurping phony...a Muslim and a Communist....born in a mud-floored hut in Kenya.

Idiots and A-holes suck that racist BS down like Jonestown Kool-Aid.... I'm afraid to have to say it, Yogi is both idiot and A-hole.

It's apparent that some here have never put one minute of study into this conflict other than what they hear in the media. I would suggest, of course, to start with the 9/11 report and it's appendix then John Keegan's best seller "The Iraq War". Followed up with Michael R.Gordon's "Cobra 2 The Inside Story of The Iraq Invasion"
After that you may be somewhat qualified to discuss it.
