    Sort of explains why Obama wanted to so completely get out of Iraq, refusing to talk to Iraqi leaders about a future American presence there. Without that they have to make the best deal they can with Iran, enabling its in the region, from Afghanistan to the Med

    Gee, I thought our "Mission" was "Accomplished" in Iraq in 2003. Was it not? Are we needed to police the Iraqi people at further costs of blood and treasure from now until the oil runs out?

    If Iraqi's wish to slaughter each other, and Iranians want to live under the rule authoritorian rulers so be it. The world is smaller today then in 10th Century, the people of the ME have the internet and smart phones too and as time passes they will demand freedom again and again. Much blood will be spilled in civil conflict as we have seen during the Arab Spring but that blood should not be the blood of our sons and daughters!

    If alternatives to oil existed and were viable who among us would give a damn about Iraq, Saudi Arabia or Iran's internal issues?

    Postscript: Those who are opposed to Obama's reelection ought to be a bit more circumspect when starting threads. Too many threads and posts come down to "ain't if awful" on complicated issues of which the author of the anti-Obama thread clearly has no understanding. Most of such threads are posted by half a dozen trolls who rarely have any insight or understanding of the real world.
