Iraq’s president Nouri Al Maliki is a thug; I’m not too troubled to see Maliki’s Shiite Iraq taking a tumble. I almost had Obama saying, “I told you so …” but that wasn’t very funny. “It sucks to be you,” strikes me as funny, and the gist of what Obama seems to be saying to Maliki.
I voted for Obama to get us out of foreign wars, supporting one bad guy vs. another, only to see Obama jump into Libya and urge military action in Syria. I’m afraid Obama will jump into Iraq again, and he’ll surely be delighted to leave troops in Afghanistan forever. At least he hasn’t done jumped back into Iraq yet.
