As Iraq faces a governmental crisis and collapses into what looks to be a three-sided civil war, Republicans even other Democrats are alleging that Obama facilitated the rise of the Sunni radical group Islamic State. Though I am no fan of President Obama, such logic is breathtakingly horrendous.
When it comes to the drawdown in Iraq, the Republican candidates for president have gone from outlandish to ignorant and irresponsible. If any of them actually believes what they've said, they should immediately be disqualified from being commander-in-chief.
As Americans, we should wish nothing but the best for the people of Iraq -- but we should also acknowledge that, if the country finds peace and prosperity, it will be in spite of what the U.S. government did to their country, not because of it.
