Attention all Liberals and Progressives, I have a Clue-by-Four to give you!

20 07 2007

Preferably right between the eyes.

Thursday, the US ambassador told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that “If there is one word, I would use to sum up the atmosphere in Iraq – on the streets, in the countryside, in the neighborhoods and at the national level – that word would be ‘fear'” He went on through the Video-linked testimony to say that the fear will have to be replaced with a level of trust and confidence and he warned that making those strides could take more time than first thought.

Crocker later played down the importance of meeting the major changes right away and less ambitious goals, such as restoring power to a neighborhood, can be just as practicable. He warned against a withdrawal of troops. He stated that it would lead to more sectarian violence and create a “comfortable operating environment” for al-qaida.

Well, this is defiantly not what the surrender gang of Liberals and Progressives wants to hear, as they are so ashamed of America being there in the first place. Senator Feinstein of California wants to speed this process up by withdrawing our troops! It is apparent to me that she was not paying attention to the ambassador or can not stand the thought of America being successful. She said that “The bottom line is that you have a government that is dysfunctional”. OK, now why would you work something harder that you know needs improvement? I wouldn’t let my child drive on a bridge that wasn’t finished yet. Why put more pressure on a system that can’t handle it?

So what’s next thing from the Liberals and progressives mouths? You guessed it, “all is lost, let’s pack up and leave!”

Democrats and several Republicans, including Sens Lugar of Indiana and Voinovich of Ohio, say they think Bush should start planing for the inevitable. Which I think means that these senators who think that they know everything will finaly make this great country of ours surrender like we did in Vietnam. Voinovich stated “If I were president, I’d put them (Iraqi politicians) in the room and say ‘We’re on the way out of there.'” First off, I’m glad your not the president because you show no understanding of what the job needs, because you want to increase pressure on a unstable system.

Which brings me to my main point. What is causing all this fear?

Well, it’s obvious to Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman, in a response letter to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, he states “premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. Forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon, and Somalia”.

I must point out here that those defeats were brought about by no one being willing to pay the price for freedom.

Mr. Edelman continues, “such talk understandably unnerves the very same Iraqi allies we are asking to assume enormous personal risks.”

I’m tickled that there is at least one sane person in Washington.

Of course this didn’t go over too well at Hillary ’08 headquarters. Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines called Edelman’s answer “at once outrageous and dangerous”

Yes I can hear it now “How dare you speak that way to your queen, and tell the truth also you petulant serf!”

What Iraq is afraid of is us cutting and running. This will cause the collapse of the experiment of Iraqi democracy. Then all the lives lost in Iraq will have been in vain.

This proves my point, paraphrasing FDR “that the only thing we have to fear in Iraq, is surrender itself!”

Umm – ok. So your proposal is what? Stay the course – keep dying. Plus last I heard the Iraqi people and government both said that they want us to leave. So its not surrender if the government asked us to leave. However to ignore the government and stay would be called “occupation”.

Benjamin, I have heard no one in the Iraqi government asking us to “get out now”, and while PM Maliki has stated he does not want the U.S. there for good, he also stated that he knows that U.S. troops cannot leave now. I am not saying this out of blind support for Bush, rather the contrary. I say this from a purely strategic point. Our enemy, the TERRORIST FORCE in Iraq (as well as Afghanistan), has stated in no uncertain terms that America is a “paper tiger”, kill a few of our soldiers and we go running home. This is an enemy who has stated their goal IS NOT just the U.S. leaving the mid-east, but in stead their goal is a WORLD WIDE ISLAMIC CALIPHATE! They have stated that ALL NON MUSLIMS should DIE! This is not saying they will kill those who fight against them in a war, they want to kill YOU if you are not muslim, even though you are against the war. If you steal to feed a starving child, you lose a hand! If a woman is raped, but cannot produce enough MALE witnesses that will say it wasn’t hear fault, SHE IS PUNISHED as a “harlot”, and most often that punishment is death. If you are found guilty of being gay, you will be buried up to your neck in sand and have large rocks thrown at you until you die, or a wall will be dropped on your head.

Is this really an enemy we can afford to look like a “paper tiger” to?

Uh, smokey, care to tell us who, where, and when it was said by terrorists that the goal is a world wide Caliphate? The Muslim world has not had a Caliph for centuries. Again, who said that all non Muslims must die? You are pulling shit out of your ass. Only the very narrowest interpretation of Sharia has any of the punishments you speak of, and besides which, the bible has similar punishments.
