    another round of wiki leaks about Iraq

    ugly stuff

    contractors running amok and getting blown to bits

    a country so unstable it's gonna get dived up between Saudi Arabia and Iran 2 minutes after the USA leaves

    simple question is the board willing to admit this was a bad idea yet?

    Stay the hell out of the Middle East. Iraq was better under Saddam. He kept Iran in check along with the ****es in Iraq. Let these loonies kill each other off!

    The war was absolutely a bad idea. Wars for profit always are.

    Still no weapons of mass destruction, still no credible links connecting 9-11 and Saddam Hussein. Thousands upon thousands of innocent citizens killed in the cross fire. I can't figure out why the government does not want those statistics from wikileaks published . At the same time I can post for days profit pages from companies that made a fortune with this war. And the democrats have blood on their hands as well with the escalation of the Afghanistan war.

    If only you had any proof of that in any form whatsoever, The Great Satan (i.e. G.W. Bush) would be in Prison right now.

    Right where he should be, amirite?

    The US under Obama has continued to sell advanced weapons system to the Saudi's and just agreed to a 2 billion dollar aid package to Pakistan who is clearly supporting the Taliban and Al Qeeda at our expense.

    Iraq is spilled milk although we still haven't brought any troops home just shifted them to another part of the world.

    Change you can depend on.

    so since no one wants to talk foreign policy (on either side)

    here's a question is it possible the costs of waging endless, pointless war, have a drag effect on the economy?

    soooooo...all the leaked stuff, this is what you want to talk about?

    Not the fact that the leaks showed that the Bush administration was correct about casualty numbers? And the lefties yelling "millions dead" were so WRONG?

    How about that they did find WoMD?

    Speaking of happening in the "imagination"...

    Indeed, most of the documents from WikiLeaks debunk the vast majority of conspiracy theories that fueled so much idiocy on the left for the past decade. No sinister plots involving Halliburton or Israel have been exposed because they existed only in the fevered fantasies of some coffee-shop dissidents.
