[quote="Skipjack"]Hehehe, considering that the withdrawal of US combat forces from Iraq was signed by G.W. Bush, this discussion (including my own comments) seems kinda silly:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S.%E2%80 ... ment/quote]
There is always a SOFA when you are in someone else's country. OBama signed the SOFA that removed us from Iraq. The SOFA you're refering to was in power when OBama took office, but it was not the SOFA that removed protection of our servicemen from the Iraq judicial system, which is what forced us out of Iraq. If OBama had had a spine, and wanted us to stay and protect that country, then we would have had the same kind of agreement we had had under Bush, but instead we were forced to vacate because our servicemen would have been under the authority of the local judicial system and subject to it--something no Commander in Chief could possibly agree to.

You need to stop making up crazy bullshit to support OBama. He hasn't done anything right yet, so why would you be going all rah-rah in support of someone who is such a dismal failure?

If the U.S. is really serious about not wasting further blood and treasure in Iraq, shouldn't they stop funding the ISIS rodeo clowns.

Funny how some posters have no idea how SOFA's work.



It's all about protecting your soldiers from political activism of the host nation. The elected Iraqi politicians refused to allow US Service members immunity (well it's not pure immunity but rather allows the US Military the ability to claim first jurisdiction of any alleged offenses). Otherwise the host nation could charge any service member they wanted with whatever charges they can invent then kangaroo them through a court and use them as a political hostage. Just look at what happened to that marine who accidentally drove over the Mexican border. They are using him as a political football to get more money out of the USA and railroading him through their own corrupt legal system. He has 0% chance at a fair trial. Any service member charged by an Iraqi court would instantly lose and be totally at the mercy of that government.

Obama like any good political swayed with the wind on the war. I can show you just as many votes, statements for and supporting the war as against it. At his time frame as a senator it was good business to be vocally apposed in Chicago land.
How they vote not what they say is the best indicator.

At least one group of Islamist militants is being attacked in a way right out of the old testament.
