It's not our job to make sure foreign countries elect good leaders, but it is in our interest - or, rather, the interest of those making decisions in the name of the U.S. - to make sure that foreign countries elect leaders who will run their country in a way that benefits our decision makers. If Iraqis want to elect leaders who are friendly to U.S. interests, then we are all for their democratic elections. Otherwise, not so much.

What's up with all the negative comments about the video? And who the hell starred Jonnygambles irrational drivel for a post? The point of the video is not to be unpredictable, but to point out concepts that are foundational, yet elude so many Americans. These types of videos should be MANDATORY for every American in an age where wars are waged for no good reason, resulting in countless death and endless suffering.
So although the title is slightly misleading, the video is impressive. Jonnygamble says it's different because the jihadist want to kill us.....REALLY? You're telling me if Chinese military forces were pillaging your city, killing family and friends, that you wouldn't want to kill them? What the hell is going through your mind? Is 1.4 million innocent Iraqi lives since 9/11 alone not good enough? Disgusting excuse and I'm ashamed anyone starred your illogical post.

There is no truth in it, so whats the deal. Why talk about things that are so far fetched when your country is already in a mess. Why distract from the endless issues you have now with something thats merely made up!

no..it's predictable because it propaganda...seriously..i served in the army in Afghanistan...the jihadists don't just want us out...they want us dead...there is a huge difference..personally i think we should have been out of iraq as soon as Saddam was dead...Afghanistan and Iraq have both turned into police actions...we shouldn't have our soldiers there for a police action..only combat..that's what leads to all the stupid incidences like abu gharib...trying to make soldiers be police...but as far as the video in the op...sorry man...i think its just dumb

Apparently, they have liked it very much. They even insisted that we stick around so they can organize their government and police forces. Much of the talk you hear about freedom fighters is made up. Most of hte insurgents now are being funded by FOREIGN nations and terrorist organizations in a proxy-war. There're many poxy wars all across the world. This is just one of them. But anyway, the Iraq people are, increasingly, taking on the burden themselves. That's why we're on a controlled exit. They have showed promise in policing their own country, of late.

if that's the level they are now subjecting the American public to.. well... its not good..

I, like LightAssassin, want to know what subliminal messaging you are talking about. I admit it is not an ordinary Ron Paul video but it really hit home with me.
