I know this may arouse the animal spirits but it is funny.

Actually, he died like a rabbit being chased by dogs.

Perhaps this is in contrast to the 100+ ISIS criminals who escaped custody because Trump stabbed Kurd allies in the back?

Plenty of al-Baghdadi juniors released there. Frankly, while killing the terrorist leader is nice and heartwarming, it will not change anything on the ground. al-Baghdadi and ISIS is the symptom of disease, not the cause. And one of the causes is Saudi Barbaria funding the terrorists, which has not changed - our troops still protect their oil while they fund terrorists and cheaply buy off our politicians.

But in both tone and substance, Trump’s announcement was in stark contrast to the moment on May 1, 2011, when President Barack Obama announced the al-Qaeda leader’s death, also in a special military operation.

Who cares about the tone? What difference does it make? lol. Surely giving pallets of cash to Iran and speaking eloquently has made us a better country, of course, right?

You mean like when Obama released al-Baghdadi from custody in 2009?

Clarification for those confused by the fictional rhetoric above. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/al-baghdadi-released-obama/


The 2009 assertion has been covered in multiple outlets and stems from an interview with a General. It appears to be mistaken.

That being said, Obama is STILL responsible for ISIS. Just before it spread wildly into the rest of Iraq and Syria, Golden Child said that just because a JV team puts on Lakers Uniforms, it doesn't make them Kobe Bryant. Obama was President during their rise and wild expansion, yet hesitated for years before taking action, which was tepid and consisted of leafleting them 24 hours in advance of air attacks.

You need to stop drinking the cool aid. He was released in 2004. So blame Bush if you must, but these decisions are made at a much lower level. He was basically a nobody thug at the time.

Yeah whatever. Who was responsible for al Qaeda? These are complex issues. Would ISIS exist if we hadn't invaded Iraq? Would we have invaded Iraq without 911 and on and on. The blame game is just simplistic drival.

He was released as he had a minor functionary job. It was the Left who wanted all the Saddam low ranking holdovers released and blamed Bush for keeping them.

At the time, ISIS did not exist, he was not a leader of anything.

However, Obama ignored ISIS as the JV team just before they conquered most of Syria and a huge swath of Iraq, and even then bombed them tepidly, with tons of warnings. He also tried to use other Islamists and Mercenaries against them, most of whom defected to ISIS with their ObamaWeapons.

They only started slowing down when the Russians started bombing them, and only rolled up when Trump became President and bombed the shit out of them.

Obama also refused to launch a rescue raid to recover Kayla Mueller and other captives.

The faggot MSF also refused to facilitate her release.

Obama is a Jive Ass Bitch that funded ISIS, he took credit for killing a guy that died a decade earlier. Who knows who he and Hillary killed that night.
We will never know, as they also saw fit to take out the Navy Seal team that followed their assignation orders.

I'd say Bush, who invaded Iraq without any good reason.

Invading was dumb, but trying to make Iraq into a neoliberal multiethnic paradise was also a major failing, instead of splitting it into 3 countries.

Tim Aurora says
Agree with that. But like Trump he was trying to withdraw troop home and did it without a good plan.


I think Trump did fine. The goal was never to protect the Kurds, but to get ISIS. Assad won't last, he's already picking villas on the Cote d'Azure

Agreed 100% - ended up as a mistake on top of stupidity. We'd have a reasonable stable and rich Kurdish state, friendly to Israel and US of A, then Sunni state, poor and rocked by terrorists, and Iranian-aligned Shia state. Everyone would be happy, may be except Sunnis.
