12 years, billions of dollars spent, many lost lives and Iraq is falling to radical Shia Islamists and ethnic militias. Iran is mobilizing the Republican Guard to help the Shiites. The country is on the verge of breaking apart. Before this breaks down into a Bush-Obama debate. Bush's invasion was never meant to be an eternal occupation. We liberated the people from Saddam, cleared the cities of terrorists, trained an Iraqi army to keep the peace, and then it was time to go. Obama made the call and the majority of people said hallelujah, it's time....and that was what the extremists were waiting for. The USA planted the seeds of this situation back in 2002. What is our role now? Do we engage the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on the ground? Offer air support? Is Iran our enemy-ally? We took a diplomatic approach in Syria but we have no investment there. Can we just do nothing and watch the country crumble? We (the majority here) love to hate Obama and whatever he decides to do will be wrong to some of us. Now he has one of the most important decisions of his presidency ahead. His great dilemma. Like Phaedrus, he is facing the horns of the bull. Which one do you want him to choose?
