By: Patrick Rodgers - Anyone who believes the propaganda of President Barry Soetoro that we won the war and are leaving Iraq with out heads held high, needs to get in touch with reality.  It was a mistake to start the war in the first place, a mistake for not treating Iraq as a conquored country, seizing the oil to pay for the conflict costs and then having Americans manage the post war redevelopment and government operations until the country could be rebuilt.  Instead, under Bush and Obama we have let the Iraqis dictate to us, kill out sons and daughters and syphon off scarce American resources which are desperately needed at home.  As we withdraw, Iran is licking it’s lips in anticipation of filling the void, seizing the oil and eliminating the minority Sunni inhabitants.  Soon you will see full scale Civil War across the country and Obama will be shucking and jiving as to how it happened.  For the precious American lives wasted in this God forsaken piece of real estate, the politicans in Washington D.C. , Democrats and Republicans alike, should all be whipped in public.
