I guess we are all blind to our own bias', Obama's mayhem is the fallout from the Arab spring and Iraq's and Afghanistan's mayhem is Bush's contribution. Yet if the intentions of both Bush and Obama were to create mayhem in the middle east, then they have done a marvelous job. Such a problem requires a drastic solution. How about a new middle east mandate authorized by the UN and enforced by the US military. What a windfall that would be for our elite in the government, oil companies, banks and military. Ohhh the FED would love it. And it all depends on the peasants going to get their pitchforks.

Babbling Buffoon: How is Iraq & Afghanistan's mayhem still seen as Bush's contribution? You
may not have gotten the memo on this yet, but that ship sailed quite some time ago. Bush pro-
moted a winning strategy in Iraq, which Obama took credit for; Obama increased our presence
in Afghanistan, as well as our mission to our detriment. Please clarify your position, providing
at the very least some semblance of factual evidence with anything approaching coherence or
logic with which to bolster your otherwise baseless allegations.

Btw, the UN always needs US forces to implement any of their policies or solutions. What would
truly be a novel idea, would be to have the UN justify its existence & allow us to disengage from
the ME.

How many Iraqis died in sectarian violence? Wasn't it hundreds of thousands? What is your definition of mayhem?

Try to think passed your bias. You might see that Bush and Obama are two sides of the same coin. Both intervened in the affairs of Muslim countries, tearing down existing power structures and leaving the country in chaos under the guise of democracy. And when the people express their will by saying they want an Islamic theocracy free from foreign intervention (i.e. Yankee go home) we howl with umbrage.

  Remember back in the beginning of 2011 when Obama told us about the freedom lovers in Egypt and Libya living under the oppression of dictators and needing our immediate help to establish democracy in their fair lands?

  You do? So do I. How weird. We should become best friends. Facebook me.

  Anyway … it turns out that the “freedom lovers” Obama coerced lots of Americans to rally behind (and whom he also pimped out with billions of sawbucks from America’s pitiful piggy bank) were bat crap crazy.

  I’m talking crazy on steroids crazy—and not just peaceful crazy like Joe Biden...
