    To understand why there are no solutions, you have to understand what Bush and the Republicans did to Iraq to put that country in such a terrible position.

    Of course, the invasion was the first problem. Iraq never attacked the United States. They didn't ask to be "freed". The saw us from the first as invaders, not liberators.

    The most obvious is that Republicans and Bush had no idea there was a difference between Sunni and Shiite. All they saw were "Muslims". By not knowing the religions or the people, there was no understanding of what "not to do". So Republicans blundered into doing everything wrong they could possibly imagine.

    Iraq had an active duty military of 250,000 and an inactive reserve of 500,000 making it one of the largest armies in the world. Bush and the Republicans fired them. Just let 250,000 armed and trained men go. Suddenly they had no jobs and no money for their families. But they still had their weapons and a new found hatred of the US.

    If Bush and the GOP knew anything about the Iraqis, they never would have put Shiites into power thereby creating a sister state with Iran.

    Republicans helped those Shiites author a right wing, extreme Islamic Constitution:

    Article 2:

    First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation:

    A. No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established.

    Not really.

    I understand that Obama has been president for the past 6 years, but was never qualified for the job, and has completely screwed up Iraq during this period.

    No he didn't. Bush and the Republicans totally screwed over Iraq before Obama was even inaugurated. It didn't matter who was president. The GOP's damage was already done.

    You didn't address a single issue I brought up. Only "It's Obama's fault" and he wasn't even president when the damage occurred.

    If Obama can't resolve this it's impossible ???? BULLSHIT.
    Have him step aside then and give an optimist a shot at it . Fuck this loser attitude.

    Blah, Blah BLAH.......


    Amazing how Obama can blame everything on History, even though 6 years of it has been HIS HISTORY!!!

    Consequently his will be a legacy of failure.

    These right wingers have no solution either. There isn't any. The GOP damage has been done. About the only thing we can do is try to protect the Kurds and the few Christians that are left after the GOP did nothing to protect them.

    Obama's bombs will be seen as "Liberator, not Conqueror Bombs".
