As far as Iraq goes, the US now has the largest embassy there of anywhere in the world. I'm not sure how many private military contractors are still there. I suspect that even a Republican president would have pulled most if not all of the uniformed troops out of Iraq by now. In the meantime Obama has pushed to seriously expand the insane war in Afghanistan. Who knows where the winds will blow him on Iran.
Six on one hand, half dozen on the other. I'm inclined to cut the guy a break.
