Of course, after be blew the shit out of their country, I would assume that more of them are somewhat pissed at us than prior to Shock and Awe.

And todays population in Iraq is over 31.2 MILLION

"Whining" ... ya don't say?

You sound like the little boy who shoots his mouth off about what ever he wants and when called on it either runs away or cries like a girl and says how it's everyone "but" him who's wrong!

So where were you Mc B when Reid shot his mouth off to the American people saying how we were losing the war? When Clinton called Patreaus a liar? ... and so on...

What did you say about those lies?

You might want to alert everyone, they seem to think it less than 30M.

You might also look at the median age for interest.

MP might be right, Iraq was invaded a few years ago by some suave, smooth, sophisticated fellas who went around the country spreading their fertile semen to any young Muslim girl who would cross to the other side of the road.....

What did you say about those lies?
Well, when Reid said it, he was dead correct. The surge was not in place, planning was 60 days behind on that action. In March 2007, we were at a lull and there was no proof that we had the leadership to get the job done. We certainly had the troops to do the job but we did not have proof that we had the leadership. Congress had been told story after story about just how easy these 25,000 insurgents would be to take out. They were told just how easy the war would be won [a slam dunk according to both Rumsfield and Cheney] and they were given mixed reports by the command from the field. Reid had 48 months of experience in seeing the "slam dunk" fail.

So, AT THE TIME, he was correct in his assessment. Good for us that he pissed off the Pentagon and they started proving him wrong.

So, to call them lies is incorrect.

Now, regarding Clinton, she questioned the integrity of Petraeus because she said he had not truthfully given honest testimony regarding the status in Iraq.

Quote:
“You have been made the de facto spokesman for what many of us believe to be a failed policy. Despite what I view as your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony ... I think that the reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief.”
Now, do you have proof that she was wrong? Nobody else seems to. They bitch that she insulted him and called him a liar but never seem to give reasons WHY they think he was completely truthful. His testimony appeared to be somewhat political instead of a military assessment and did not match up with what others were seeing on the ground.

Taken as a whole, I give little consideration for what politicians say in their political posturing and I give little consideration for what political generals have to say when they cross that line from military to politic.

But then again, I don't get my opinion from either the left or right blogsphere so it is not tinted from the get-go.

Where were you then Jim?

If the democrats could prove 1/10 the shit that they splatter on the American people just so they could put a nitwit in the Whitehouse then they should go after Bush and Cheyne and do with them what they want.

But let's face facts...... the democrats are nothing but mush mouthed lying packs of shit.

I wanna see Pelosi's ass thown out of DC if possible, and if not possible then I want her to suffer the same way she made others suffer.

Too much to ask for Jim?

You want peace now that the democrats won?

Peace? ..... I don't think so and people are starting to wake up from the mind fuck that they received from the democrats in the past 3 years and they ain't happy!

A whole lot of people want some "put up or shut up"!
So, you are defending Bush? One minute you say you don't give two shits for Bush and Cheney, and the next minute you want revenge for how they were mistreated by the Democrats. And then to get that revenge, you are cheerleading for "Peace....I don't think so..." with the cost being staying focused on fixing the mess we are in, thanks to Bush and Cheney. Given the disaster the past eight years was and the record being uncovered it won't be long until you goad the likes of Pelosi to begin fighting back with more, because it is apparent there is lots more.

You resemble an angry, spoiled child lashing out without thinking ahead of time about the consequences. In this case I believe you might get your wish - real investigations of real war crimes and willful disregard of our Constitution. Great.

Ok Jim....

Try to keep up if you can.

"IF" you have something on Bush and Cheyne the by all means prosecute them both to the fullest extent that the law will allow.

Don't fuck around shooting your mouth off like all the democrtats have been doing for years now .... just do it.

The problem is that you don't have anything on them...... McB doesn't have anything on them...... Pelosi ....Reid and the rest of the shit doesn't have anything on them ..... other than lies that is.

And with those lies you and those like you got your candidate elected. Hey! That's fine. But those who get elected should do what they say they are going to... do you think?

So fine! Put up or shut up time.

Let's open up that can of worms and see what wiggles out.

Ya wanna know why it won't get opened? Because if it does it will prove to the American people that the members of the Jackass Party deceived the population every chance they got.

Why do you think that Cheyne is now wanting documents brought out into the open? It's put up or shut up time on the hill and now it's time to start frying some ass. The only problem for you is that it isn't Bush and Cheyne's ass on the skillet.

Yep! I believe that some exit visa's are in the near future for some of your buddies.

Yep! It'll be fun watching them grow even more mouths that they can talk out of both sides of ...... kinda like some here!

The numbers of people want the democrats to "put up or shut up" is growing day by day... as is the numbers who believe that all democrats are lying packs of shit ..... as are the numbers who will start voting them out of office.

There is one thing that the democrat party can not live through ... ""the truth"!
