Where was your protest when we were spending trillions on unnecessary wars? Oh wait a minute, that's because Bush was President, and Bush and Cheney could do no wrong. Are we rebuilding mosques that we knocked down?

Get a life!!!

Snopes says "Mostly True". The source was CBS, and the mosque refurbishing was funded by USAIDinappropriately, in my view.

You can't see that "The Unnecessary Wars" were directed at Iran? Where do you think IEDs were made?

Those two countries haven't been affected by such "Aid", according to Snopes.

As to the "protest", the war in Afghanistan was known as the "good" war in the New York Times..  

"Obama called Afghanistan the 'good' war in contrast to his criticism of Bush's invasion of Iraq. But that hasn't sat well with the Democratic base ..."
http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2011/06/22/obamas-tough-sell-on-afghanistan

The Iraq War got rid of Saddam Hussein, who was launching SAM missiles at US aircraft, and terrorizing or gassing populations in Iraq.  The opposing population had their tongues removed in the streets—where most didn't survive that outrage.

I can't help that Obama is losing the relative peace in both countries.

(Even the country Obama referred to as "The Good War").

No

Afghanistan was good until it became a decades long nation building fiasco!

In Iraq we traded Saddam Hussein for Al Qaeda and installed a government that is cozy with Iran! What were Bush and Cheney thinking? There was never going to be relative peace in those countries after we tore them up. What do you like to do? Blame Obama! That makes a lot of sense!    No

It wasn’t just President Bush and VP Cheney that sent our troops to Iraq. It was also congress (including Hillary + Biden) and the majority of the population.

I know the revisionist history of the radical left and hindsight is 20/20 but come on.

The U.S. pulled out of Iraq on the exact date President George W. Bush negotiated. Yet somehow the left gives Obama credit for it.

If you have a problem with Iraq becoming a terrorist state, then you can only blame Obama for poor negotiating skills.

There is only ONE thing worse than the deaths of so many young men and women of the Armed Forces of in Iraq. That is for their deaths to mean nothing.

That is what you can credit to Obama.

Nonsense! We never should have gone into Iraq! It was done with very little international support and completely devoid of any strategic planning. The fact that Democrats in Congress voted for it means nothing because they voted on bad information. Besides, you can't get around the fact that the President of The United States is the Commander In Chief and ordered the invasion! You always try to take the heat off Bush, but history will never allow that!

You are correct about only one thing: We should have never gone to Iraq.

Here is where you are WRONG.

The President of the United States cannot declare war without congress. Lets not forget…Hillary and Biden supported going into Iraq.

Devoid of any strategic planning????  Laughing 

The President and Republicans got the same bad intel as the Democrats in congress. I know you would like people to think otherwise, but come on.

The U.S. had an international coalition of 49 nations supporting the war effort in Iraq.

You blame all of Obama’s failures (and there are so many) on the republicans in congress. Yet you can say that war in Iraq is 100% George W Bush’s fault.

Your absence of intellectual integrity is astounding.

And now you're trying to re-write history by saying that Bush didn't order the invasion of Iraq. You right wingers are a real hoot!!    Laughing Laughing

Does Obama Support Womens' Rights?

Post  News Hawk on Tue Mar 11, 2014 8:40 pm

Excerpt:

"When U.S. forces toppled the Taliban government following the 9/11 attacks, there was a global wave of support from people horrified by the plight of Afghan women. Under the Taliban, women had been denied education, banned from medical treatment by male doctors, and publicly executed for "immorality."

The Taliban's fall promised women some basic freedoms and rights. Indeed, over the past 10 years there have been significant improvements for Afghan women and girls. Official restrictions ended on access to education, work, and health care. Millions of girls went to school for the first time. Women joined government, won elected office, and became police officers and even soldiers. A new constitution in 2004 guaranteed women equal rights, and a 2009 law made violence against women a crime.

Underneath the surface of these changes, however, deep seated problems persist. Women in public life have suffered harassment, threats, and sometimes murder. Forced marriage, underage marriage, and domestic violence are widespread and too widely accepted.

About 400 women and girls are imprisoned at present for the "moral crimes" of sex outside of marriage and simply running away from home, often to flee abuse. While education is more accessible, more than half of girls still don't go to school. Every two hours an Afghan woman dies of pregnancy-related causes.

As the announced departure of international forces in 2014 draws closer, many Afghan women look to the future with fear. They worry that the troop pullout signals the end of interest in Afghanistan, and with it the international commitment to push the Afghan government to promote and protect women's rights. Also likely to decrease is the foreign aid that pays for schools and clinics that have changed many lives. Afghan women fear being abandoned again by the rest of the world, as they were during the Taliban era."
http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/08/opinion/afghanistan-women-rights-barr/

Well, does he—or is he planning to abandon these Afghan women?

No

And after which war did we not leave a vulnerable group behind? After Vietnam it was the Hmong, thousands of whom now live in America. Why do you think Karzai is being cagey with us? It's because the President of Afghanistan was assassinated after the Russians left! We never seem to learn our lesson!
