Back to the OP: hope the Iraqis recover. Why did the national army flee? Jesus! So tough for these countries to build a political consensus. We need to spend more time pondering solutions and less on myopic p.r. offensives on leadership.
Why is everything Obama Obama Obama all the time? He’s one person. What about Congress? What about the American mentality since WWII? What of all our various political and financial interests the world over?
You know what our problem is? No critical thinking, mass stupidity and public irresponsibility.
