    Baghdad (CNN) Stations aligned with Sunni and Shiite extremist groups, many of whom attacked U.S. troops, have dubbed it the "Day of Defeating the Occupier" -- others have called it the "Day of Fullfillment" or "Day of Evacuation."

    Is Obama to blame or is the corporate liberals hiding within the Demublicans to blame for dragging us into a mission doomed for failure?

    You're right. We should have stayed there for 100 more years, allowed thousands more of our soldiers to die, and bankrupted ourselves. That would have shown those stupid Iraqi.

    That depends on what you mean by "define". Am I allowed to use my own personal emotions and pride in my answer? /sarcasm

    Yea it is all perspective. Some could argue the Iraq War was a victory for the U.S. But then some could argue it was a defeat too. I was just asking the OP to elaborate on exactly how the U.S. has been defeated by Iraq. Debt alone cannot be the sole determining factor.

    I think we lost it by not advocating better for Human Rights considerations in reconstruction and Government reform.

    Shouldn't have pulled out without making sure we won. What has 16trillion in debt have to do with it? The biggest part of the debt is obamaturds fault. I love it when dimwits play politics with something that is their fault. Idiots.
