What a terrible surrender of the leverage the US had with its presence in the Middle East as a counterweight to Iran. This pullout leaves Iran as the premier power in that area and one that has stated its murderous intentions toward Israel and the West, all to satisfy the leftist base of the Democrat Party. The Democrats have a history of this going back a century and a half. They were not against slavery in the mid-1800's and were actively campaigning to stop the war and recognize the Confederacy as a separate slave-holding nation; all after thousands of men had died in trying to keep this nation united. As it was with McGovern in the 1960's and on to the pro-Palestinian leftists today, this world will be a much more dangerous place when run to the satisfaction of "progressives". We might as well have elected Bill Ayers or Rev. Wright to be our president. TD
Remember, however that the Obama base is the Occupy Wall Street crowd and the socialist left. They neither know nor care what happens to peaceful people of the world; they only seek the approval of the murderers of innocents. Obama's base drives up in their cars with the "Visualize World Peace" bumper stickers and rallies for those who would murder innocent families asleep in their beds or dining in restaurants.
