Us and Iran are fighting in Iraq, I think they will be ANOTHER proxy war there

Iran's a joke to the US

Remember what America did to Japan? Japan only took down like 3 boats, and then they got the Sun dropped on them, twice!

Did you also see the funny video about Trump in 2011 criticizing Obama for dealing with Iran poorly? It's so funny!

What was the last war that the yanks won?

Lets pull out of the entire middle east.
--> @Alec
Why?
--> @Dr.Franklin
We kill more innocent civilians than ISIS does and it costs so much money.  It's neither pro life nor small government.
--> @Alec
so what if we kill some civilians, we make peace
--> @Dr.Franklin
so what if we kill some civilians

Bra!  Killing civilians is bad man.  We have been involved with the middle east for 18 years.  We're not making peace anytime soon.  We don't make peace if we're killing more civilians than ISIS.

We did have peace, but Obama fucked it up

2016 war on Socialism
pollywanna can't find a war that the yanks won, oh dear.

What planet was that?

We didn't make peace. We destabilized a country. We were in Iraq for quite a long time, yet nothing was ever accomplished. America has no reason to govern Iraq, pulling out had to happen sooner or later. 

For all of Saddam Hussein's faults, he kept order and peace in Iraq better than any recent government. 

Iraq wants us gone from their country.

The last war America won was the Second Gulf War. We lost the following peace, but we did win the war. If you want to count it as a war and if you think it's over, the war against ISIS would be the last war America won.
--> @triangle.128k
not if we protect them over Iran
--> @Dr.Franklin
Iraq literally voted to expel American troops.

Iraq doesn’t want us there. Most Americans don’t want us there. The only people that DO want us there are neo cons/bought liberals and military contractor executives. Don’t you find it weird that supposed scandals occur whenever we try to leave? Like the pixelated video of “Iranians” planting a “bomb” on a ship?

Why do some people always keep trying to state rational, logical common sense.

The only business we have in Iraq is war-for-oil.  Oil and war is big business.

War in Iraq was idiots-on-board. War in Iran is idiots-on-board.

Iran will get nuclear weapons, just as USA, Russsia, Pakistan, Israel, India, Fance, N. Korea have them.

The small brain{ dicks } idiots need to get over their infantile obsession with other sovereign countries they dont like. having a nuclear weapon.

Either all nations get rid of their nuclear weapons or all are allowed to add to growing number of nuclear weapons.

Mutually Assured Destruction { M.A.D } is on the rise again and humanity will perhaps suffer the consequences of the idiocy. Only time will humanities future on Earth.



Iraq was fucked the moment we tried to have the country survive on its own with a Shia/Sunni/Kurdish mix rather then splinter the country into three along sectarian lines..... The only reason it stayed together for as long as it did without internal strife was because Saddam was a big enough of a dickbag to put fear into the hearts of anyone who opposed him, regardless of religious affiliation... Now though with Saddam gone, the three groups just try to vie for as much power as they can get, doing so by fucking over the other two at their earliest convenience. 

Since the US has no desire to force Iraq to remain together indefinitely, and Iran not having any capacity to do so either despite being fucking right next door, Iraq will find its own way to devolve into a shitfest comparable to Somalia..... Corruption, military coups, siphoning off of resources. All the ingredients are there for Iraq to tear itself into pieces and be a no-go zone on travel maps until 2040, its now just a matter of time.

I am 100% against the War in Iraq. However, I don't fault people too much for being in favor of it back in the day. From what I understand, there was a huge propaganda campaign saying Saddam helped plan 9/11, was build WMDs to use(possibly against us), and other related things. Looking back and knowing it was all false, it is easy for me to say it was a bad idea. Back then it probably seemed smart. There was bi-partisan support, I believe. 

That is why I am very skeptical about any info about supposed Iran activity and don't believe it would be a particularly bright idea.

Yeah, I see the light bulb going off above your head. Welcome to the rational, logical common sense club.  Very few of us on board Spaceship Earth.
--> @bmdrocks21
a bit of a tangent on my part, but this and many other reasons is why I'm extremely skeptical of government and why it just boggles my mind so many want to give them even more control over our lives, healthcare and neutering the 2a are just some prime examples, then when you think back to the speech limitations they would also force on us we are going in a dangerous direction but too many still wear the blinders the government has put on them and they were so ready and willing to put on, and keep on, sad state of society :(
--> @TheDredPriateRoberts
Absolutely. Back in 2016 I believe, there was a debate between Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz. Cruz said something along the lines of "Bernie, we both agree that Washington is corrupt. I can't think why you'd advocate for giving them more power."

I am generally in the non-interventionist club.
