    The war has ended? Oh great. Has anyone told the Kurds?

    Strange... you seem to be arguing the USA should be involved in Middle East conflicts... do you support western intervention abroad?

    If you instigate conflicts, you have a duty to make reparations when things end up as a colossal disaster. The current situation in Syria / Kurdish areas was the direct result of the second Gulf War.

    Now Iraqi lawmakers are demanding the US withdraw...

    Now to me I think ''about time, enough damage done".

    But I suspect a bunch of posters that see things through a Trump-prism will decry this as irresponsible when they'd have welcomed it under Obama.

    Not me.

    They should have gone years ago.

    They (and we) should also be making reparations financially for about 1000 years. We only just finished paying the Americans back for helping us in WW2. Goodness knows what the Iraqis must be owed for being destroyed.

    Don't get too many Obama fans defending their 'hero' anymore on these boards.

    They have all gone quiet.

    Who needs Obama now we have Trump - let's consider Trump's virtues for a minute..

    A man of impeccable manners and integrity

    A man who never shirks his duty to his country

    A man of total honesty

    A man who cares deeply about the people

    Say what you like about Obama - but for one thing he wouldn't visit serving soldiers and tell lies about getting them a pay rise - why do you think he did that ?

    Here is some other things Obama would do and infact did.

    Arm jihadists

    Help to turn Libya from one of the most prosperous countries in Africa into a slave state

    Dropped bombs on 8 different countries killing countless innocent civilians.

    Yes Obama so polite.

    How many civil wars has Libya had? Who funnelled weapons to ISIS when they pretended to want the overthrow of Assad?

    But yes... at least he was polite about it.
