In his entry to presidential politics senator Obama made it clear America should be out of Iraq. "I would not slow my plan of withdrawal if it would stop a genocide."
Fast forward seven years and the world has changed greatly!

Limited Military action has begun again in Iraq. I agree with this military action. loosing Iraq to the extremists would be dangerous to the US and the world.

But I think the president has to admit that his original view was, like many democrats ideals and views, short sighted and naive.

I wonder if the Iraq war and the pull out or reduction of forces were handled better would this have been avoidable.

There were warnings about the reduction in Iraq but the warnings did not seem to be heeded, by the one office that could have made the difference. As commander in chief of the largest Navy in the world you should really do a better job of shaping the world, and make no mistake every military operation the United States is involved in shapes the world we live in.

The situation just highlights his complete lack of the military complex and leadership commiserate in these types of circumstances.

This is true but he is not alone in this crowd. It can be argued that Ronald Reagan demonstrated in Afghanistan the same lack of military complex and leadership.
That is only one example. Another would be Nixons ending of the Vietnam war.
rarely have wars ended well but they have. Good leadership learns how to win and end wars well and despite political pressures executes.
Bad leadership does not and it seems their is bad leadership is present in both political parties throughout history.

hmm not sure if I agree that they were not true wars but wouldn't you agree that part of WWII was to suppress invaders and usher a regime change to Germany?

Ok, I have seen the bumper stickers and heard the arguement. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" and while that is both true and not true. It is like someone saying it is not the fall that kills you but the sudden stop at the end. Ever since the ...
