Laura Ingraham discovers Bush is to blame for ISIS: ‘Iraq is worse than before we went in’

Laura Ingraham speaks to Fox News

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham lamented over the weekend that Iraq was worse now because President George W. Bush had invaded the country in 2003.

During a panel segment on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked Ingraham if President Barack Obama had made the correct decision by ordering airstrikes against ISIS, a group of Islamic radicals who are taking advantage of a power vacuum in Iraq to slowly seize control of the country.

“It’s really hard, I don’t think you can judge how he did right now,” she admitted. “We’re almost in an impossible situation. The America people really have no appetite for America to reengage. They don’t want us to go into Syria.”

“He’s now reluctantly seeing the perils of inaction,” the radio host continued. “If we do nothing here, then what? I mean, let’s say Iraq does fall, which I think is a possibility. Iraq may fall. If, indeed, there are no boots are the ground, not going to happen, can’t happen.”

Ingraham added that she was “not saying” she wanted to see U.S. forces return to Iraq: “I don’t know if there’s a good solution right now, which is a horrible thing to say for the United States of America.”

Later in the segment, Ingraham pointed out that al Qaeda — through its ISIS offshoot group — was “becoming the Islamic state.”

“We tried to do all these things in Iraq, now Iraq is worse off!” she exclaimed. “I mean, I hate to say that, but Iraq is worse than before we went in to Iraq. Christians are gone, there’s no sense of order at all.”

“Saddam Hussein is gone. That’s a good thing, but what’s left? A more embolden Islamic state.”

Iraq was 'open for sale' as soon as Saddam was gone.  Now it has reverted back in time .....

I almost cannot believe that Laura would state this for the world to hear. Is her contract not being renewed?

 Finally some people are waking up that here are different traditions and cultures that do not recognize the Western way as they only way.  Dictator keep order.  The power vacuum happened after the 1st gulf war when there was a organized opposition to Saddam that had the backing of many when he left the  foolishness of rebuilding is clear.  If the US had not wasted years pacifying  thses  factions would be at each other's throats for years to come.

Guess who realizes the need for another iron fist? The only thing that sucks about the order that comes from the iron fist is that eventually the iron fist is all that works.
