Now We’re Getting Somewhere

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 22, 2007

If the Republicans and Bush want their war, let them go on the record and say so:

WASHINGTON (AP)  Determined to challenge President Bush, Senate Democrats are drafting legislation to limit the mission of U.S. troops in Iraq, effectively revoking the broad authority Congress granted in 2002, officials said Thursday.

C’mon, Republicans.  You like this war so much, vote for it.   Then try to defend your vote next year.

    Works for me. These kinds of bills are absolutely necessary. First of all, they obviously do a tremendous amount of good if they’re successful, but if they’re not, they force the Republicans to go on record and reassert their ownership of the fiasco, which will hurt them in 2008.

    (NOTE: This requires Democrats to vote *against* the war.)

    Question is why take action under false moral high ground. That is what both the senior and junior neocons Bushes did both in Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact the only sucess the junior had was in dodging the shoe in Iraq. Feeding simple minded good natured Americans with the jewish dominated media gaurantees road to success. Now on the one hand quite a number of afghanis trained by CIA/Indian Raw are entering Pakistans northern borders in the name of Talibans- a term abused with full passion by the same press. They wear scarves on their face to pass a certain sterotyped muslim image to the world. When the previous Government of Pakistan wanted to fence and mine the border to stop inter border raids the same was received with a lot of opposition by the Karzai and the Bush government. Why? Similarly some of the warlords on the pay roll of these agencies have a suicide training factories where they brain wash the 16/17 yrs fellows for suicide missions and then keep them reserved for launching at the time and place as ordered by their mentors. Purpose is to justify to the world that the Pakistani nukes are in immediate danger of the uneducated “talibans” and hence need to be protected by the UN(read US/Israel). Then get the required statements from our CIA installed president to support their contention. Incidentally a person accused of four murder cases and with a sleazy background as always stated by ur press is our president now – who failed a number of times and could not pass the high school. And though the prime minister is the chief executive then why is he the one calling shots? A gentle and simple americans image is being replaced by a GI holding gun on an innocent and helpless child. Unfortunately all in the interest of Israel- if pictured in a broader horizon.
