This aint no Peace III…
Well, well CNN’s Jack Cafferty proceeds to urinate on U.S. service personnel. First he leads with:
The Iraqi government is finally making its voice heard, and it’s not the message the White House was hoping for.
Baghdad is saying there will be no security deal with the U.S. unless it includes a timetable for withdrawing our troops from their country.
This puts the Bush administration in a delicate position. The U.N. mandate that allows American troops to be in Iraq expires at the end of the year. Pres. Bush has long opposed a firm timetable, but he also wants the Iraqi government to stand on its own. President Bush himself has said in the past that he would go along with the Iraqi government’s wishes.
U.S. officials now say Iraq has the right to determine its future, but once again insists that a timeline would be a bad idea. Resistance from the Iraqi government will probably make it difficult to finish those negotiations by the end of this month, like the administration wanted.
After making it sound like Iraq want’s us out he asks :
Here’s my question to you: Should the U.S. agree to Iraqi demands for a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawal?
And the orgy of hate flows, typical comments like:

Unless we want to overthrow the current Iraqi government and annex the country as part of the United States, of course we have to get out if they don’t want us there. Uh oh. I may have given Bush an idea. Forget that annex business.

Yes, it is way past time to leave Iraq. Let the Iraqis run their own country and finally charge Bush and Cheney with war crimes, crimes against humanity as well as violations of international law.

Now you have armed your enemies in Iraq to prove the surge would work you better get out as soon as possible or you will likely pay terrible price for the profits of your oil magnates.
Remember this isn’t the first time you’ve armed your enemies e.g. Osama Bin Laden to fight the Russians in Afghanistan and Saddam Hussien to fight the Iranians etc. etc.
Of course if you elect John McCain you will need to stay in Iraq so you will have a solid base in the area to help with your invasion of Iran.

How dare are puppet government forget its place and demand to control their own country. Timetables, that’s liberal speak, we can not leave Iraq until the oil is flowing and old glory is blowing in the wind.

Comments are closed, I wonder why. What with the media trying to hide progress in Iraq. My father always trusted the tv news. His generation (he was born in 1938) view the tv and newspaper as THE final say on matters of import.
I, even as a young pup, saw it differently. As the son of a defense worker, I took it as an insult when I saw anti-war/anit-Reagan/anti-American protests on tv. During the Clinton years I saw a media give a womanizing man a free pass. He diddled while the World Trade Center burned, Osama schemed and soldiers died in Operation Gothic Serpent.
Now the media tries to cover it’s butt on Iraq. First it cheered on war with Saddam. Then it rooted for a Vietnam on the Tigress. TV and newspapers hyped every soldier death, every soldier who was a victim of PTSD. However they did this by standing on the shoulders of service members. Biased coverage, over hyping American deaths while hiding the real work.
We are winning in Iraq, the terrorists are *losing*.
Hollywood gave vets and the finger, but America returned the favor and their horrible moves bombed.
Oh well, we’ll keep defending their freedom. They’ll just have to keep seething and making crappy movies. I’ll be sticking to blogs, anime and the other corners net.
p.s. this is why I’ll nevern donate to an NGO
