ok. can I just say, im tired of everything being blamed on America?

“This is an end to the political system put in place after 2003,” said Shwan al-Dawoodi, a Kurdish lawmaker. “A big part of the blame for this is on America, which left Iraq without solving this crisis it created.”

we try to help , we try to train your soldiers, help your government, etc
we cant do EVERYTHING, it is YOUR country after all and fuck, that was 2003, you cant blame us for not having done something this WHOLETIME...

They were better off with Saddam Hussein.
He was a son of a bitch but he kept everyone in check.

America did have some "good" controll in some areas around the middle east, but then either pulling out or stay there would be trouble but the moving out was a bigger problem so those with issues could do what they wanted with those with a different view.

and wars breaking out with the "toys" america left behind.

I'm so glad that Obama is in charge, because that makes the Iraqis racist for blaming him.

because we know how do do shit better than the middle east, sadly, that's sayin something we go in, help, or try, and go out, what are we supposed to do? LIVE there? dear arceus , its Iraq, not America, they need to fix their own country and if its taken13 years for them to do that then its THEIR fault, its like they are dependent on our military forces for help -talking about the middle east in general

First of all many would not like them there and would be aggressive/weapons against such forces.

But its also some of a problem AMERICA created atleast quite a few.. and some of that AMERICA should also fix as they also created some of it.
So I would love if some deals and views could come in controll that will settle things more, and hopefully some could agree to the west a bit more and after some time get into deals + making a chain of reasonable working places, education and so on.

Some also Russia, France, England has been a part of or being more into then others (from creating cultures in africa that made some of the people split seen these people as lesser worth etc aka the reason of the mass slaughters of millions? by views and such)
Russia from some of their tradings, and use of guns like they did the most in afghanistan? (atleast somewhere around those arabic lands)

thing is we can only do so much, after what we can do , it IS the responsibility of that country to do the rest, which they don't do as you see, THIRTEEN years later
edit: it was already a mess before we came in, yes I agree we stirred some other things up, but having a shitty country/government BEFOREHAND already does not make it our fault,

I say split Iraq into its own countries based on what ever they want to call themselves, forcibly move everyone into appropriate geographical location, and watch the hilarity that follows as they cannot defend themselves from the same people they couldn't get along with others in the same country .

It was a mistake getting involved in Iraq in the first place. It was easily the biggest mistake the US has made since Vietnam. Once we did, though, we shouldn't of pulled out so soon. That is what helped build up ISIS. Of course, nobody took the Middle East seriously in the current administration. So they let the Arab Spring happen and were happy about that, despite the fact it was the worst thing that could possibly of happened. The world would be a better place if Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi were still alive and in power.
