I want an Abrams heavy battle tank, too. The Iraqi army gave all those cool weapons to ISIS. I saw the interview with General Petraeus in which he stated that he clearly told Bush that Maliki was sacking the Iraqi officer corp and replacing them with his cronies. Petraeus said he received a classic Bush response: "I feel in my gut that everything will be OK."
Remember we were assured that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, that Hussein helped attack on 9/11. And now they're asking us to send Marines to assist the Iranian Qud's and Muqtada al Sadr defend Iraq (yes, the same people who killed our guys.)
I think that Assis owes a letter of thanks for George Bush for raising his army and getting such cool stuff. If they're giving it away, I want cool stuff, too.
