Right..and I see my deceased dog in my dreams occasionally. Is this man friggin nuts?
This past week saw more dead Iraqi's than any time in the last year. Even this article quotes an Iraqi spokesman saying something different contrary:
An Iraqi military spokesman said, meanwhile, that militants fleeing the crackdown have made areas outside the capital "breeding grounds for violence," spreading deadly bombings and sectarian attacks to areas once relatively untouched.
So how does Johnny see progress if we are merely moving the insurgents into otherwise calm and non-violent areas?
Fuck, I am so tired of the rhetoric. This delusional fuckwit is borrowing a page from the Shrub's playbook. Keep saying it, and folks will eventually buy it.
Except they don't any longer..they been down this road lots of times in the last 4 years.
The deal is that a covey of Repubes went over to Iraq to see what's up. That idiot Lindsey Graham had this to say:
"It will be a huge mistake to set a deadline. It (the U.S. troop surge) is working. We are doing now what we should have done three years ago. ... The Iraqi people want their own destiny but they don't have the capabilities yet," he said.--Oh yeah its working..people who were living fairly civil lives are now getting to experience what the folks in Baghdad have dealt with for a couple of years now.
And thats success. Oh fuck yeah..sure..and I got a bridge I would like to sell ya boys.
