It must be a terrible thing for a peoples to ignore the orders you bring…posted by Bill Arnett @ 2:17 PM Permalink From todays WaPo article titled, "Petraeus: Iraqi Leaders Not Making 'Sufficient Progress,'" which I know shocks our government that they can't force people, even at the business end of a gun, to adopt a democratic form of government or follow the specious orders of the American military which, a bare 200-years old, just doesn't understand anything about the Middle East:
Iraqi leaders have failed to take advantage of a reduction in violence to make adequate progress toward resolving their political differences, Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, said Thursday.Far be it from me to call the General an outright liar, but he is an outright liar if he believes this ridiculous assumption.
Petraeus, who is preparing to testify to Congress next month on the Iraq war, said in an interview that "no one" in the U.S. and Iraqi governments "feels that there has been sufficient progress by any means in the area of national reconciliation," or in the provision of basic public services.
Ask any Republican, bush, cheney, John McLame, John Boehner, or any other GOP or neocon member of the House or Senate and they will look you right in the eye and tell you how good things are going in Iraq, that we are winning there, and that it won't be long before we steal their oil and use American Armed Forces to guard the oil wells and profits therefrom for Exxon-Mobil for the next thirty years. [Well, they probably won't actually confess to murder, genocide, illegal wars of aggression, and all the war crimes bush has had American soldiers carry out.]
Republicans don't give a damn about the welfare of our troops and will gladly sacrifice any number of them to increase and safeguard the profits of the most profitable corporation in the world. The hell with military families, what's right, what's wrong, how long it takes, how much it weakens or destroys our military, or what they have to do, by means fair or foul, to steal a finite oil source.
It's just what they gotta do, no matter how many Iraqis they have to kill: men, women, children, all of them if necessary.
It's the Neocon GOP, Conservative, Republican way to attack and kill first and try to explain later with lies no one will believe.
