Since you're so adamant about staying in Iraq why don't you do us a favor and go there yourself? Take a stroll in Baghdad and then write a post here about how safe it is to be there. Oh, don't forget to wear a cowboy hat and boots. We would love to see some hug pics to prove us wrong

Let's see.

AQ moved into Iraq while 150,000 US troops and the bulk of US intel were stationed there.
The Middle East has become LESS STABLE with our presence since 9/11
The Administration did everything it could to destroy our Constitution and put us in a police state.
OBL is still doing the very same things he was doing 9/10/2001
Decades old allies no longer trust the US in Foreign Policy
You can no longer take a bottle of shampoo on an airplane.
Diplomats stationed in the Green Zone [the most highly secured piece of real estate on the Planet] have to wear flak jackets and helmets to move between buildings
$3Trillion dollars have been spent on Security in America
A Bicyclist can STILL roll up to building in the busiest, most secure intersection in the world , plant a bomb and roll awaywithout being stopped or even identified.

Hate to break the news to you, but Al Qeada won when Bush started his half assed plan to "secure 'murka" with Faux Cowboy "leadership".

Indeed! So, where's the benefit American's or Iraqi's are getting for the $12 BILLION we spend on that 'war' each month?

World news Feed Article | World news |
The flow of blood may be ebbing, but the flood of money into the Iraq war is steadily rising, new analyses show. In 2008, its sixth year, the war will cost approximately $12 billion a month, triple the ``burn'' rate of its earliest years, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and co-author Linda J. Bilmes report in a new book.

Beyond 2008, working with ``best-case'' and ``realistic-moderate'' scenarios, they project the Iraq and Afghan wars, including long-term U.S. military occupations of those countries, will cost the U.S. budget between $1.7 trillion and $2.7 trillion - or more - by 2017.

Interest on money borrowed to pay those costs could alone add $816 billion to that bottom line, they say.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has done its own projections and comes in lower, forecasting a cumulative cost by 2017 of $1.2 trillion to $1.7 trillion for the two wars, with Iraq generally accounting for three-quarters of the costs.

Variations in such estimates stem from the sliding scales of assumptions, scenarios and budget items that are counted. But whatever the estimate, the cost will be huge, the auditors of the Government Accountability Office say.

In a Jan. 30 report to Congress, the GAO observed that the U.S. will be committing ``significant'' future resources to the wars, ``requiring decision makers to consider difficult trade-offs as the nation faces an increasing long-range fiscal challenge.''


Also, I'd appreciate it if you'd let us all know how leaving with the blessings of the Iraqi Prime Minister, "anytime [we] want", would be indicative of surrender?

NPR: Maliki: Iraq Able to Keep Security After U.S. Exit
Weekend Edition Saturday, July 14, 2007

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saturday that the Iraqi army and police are capable of keeping security in the country when American troops leave "any time they want," though he acknowledged the forces need further weapons and training.

...

Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari warned earlier this week of civil war and the government's collapse if the Americans leave. But al-Maliki told reporters Saturday, "We say in full confidence that we are able, God willing, to take the responsibility completely in running the security file if the international forces withdraw at any time they want."

Look, you're an imbecile - everyone knows it, it's okay. Just don't act all outraged and indignant when you get called on it.

hehehehe
Remember that a good portion of $12 billion we spend every month is actually going into the pocket of OUR contractors. Since those contractors have a strong lobbying and influence cover there is no way they would want to see this loot end. They will do whatever to have the politicians play the fear card to keep the money flowing and they could care less that in the end the tax payers are the ones getting screwed.
Any one hinting to stop this bonanza could very possibly get killed. In a way there is legitimacy in the rumor that Obama could be targeted but it sure will not be just because he's black and he's rocking the "establishment", it all boils down to the war profiteers desires. People like Jahawk and company just play into their hand with fear bullshit, I mean just look at him eating this shit up.

While you abhor the act itself, the fact that it was a bicyclist excites you on some level, doesn't it?
