Joe Biden is optimistic about Iraq

'On Larry King Live last night, Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq "could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You're going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government."

The vice president said he’d been to Iraq 17 times and visits the country every three months or so. "I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society" he said. "It's impressed me. I've been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences." '

This guy has the onions to try and take credit for Iraq?

good grief

McCain suggested a 100 year occupation. Obama/Biden want to withdraw within months. Does that sound like they copied the plan from President Dumbass and his failed successors?

Mr. Mojo!

I only saw your reply on my blog just now, as I had not written for over a month. Your kind words are completely undeserved. Please forgive the delay in responding to your points; I'll do so shortly.

"Obama/Biden want to withdraw within months."

Well DUH! They're withdrawing in line with the agreement the Bush administration came to with Iraq. It's just like Obama to take credit for something he opposed every way possible.

Habis, it looks like your beloved Taliban are in big trouble.

Aton how much you want to bet that a few minutes after the white christian terrorists leave the area they are currently terrorizing and where they are murdering an untold number of afghans, the Taliban freedom fighters will be right back?

Nobody has yet to explain why a bunch of white christian terrorists are in Helmand anyway. Its a long way from London and Hillbilly America.

Hopefully the Taliban are able to kill as many white christian terrorists as possible. I think it is their responsibility to the civilized world.

Afghanistan’s internal affairs are none of your business. The loathsome savages of the Haqqani network are finished.

Aton I am sorry. You are right. It is not my business. That is the business of Americans and Brits. Silly me.

Mori:
"They're withdrawing in line with the agreement the Bush administration came to with Iraq."

That's not true. Bush aimed for an indefinite stay, and he would think up excuses as he went along.
So the agreements Bush would sign were designed only to get further extension.

Five or six years into the war, people were getting impatient, so he signed an extension for another 3 years with his manservant Maliki,
with the expectation that the U.S. would renew again in 2012.

All part and parcel of his overall ambition to never leave.


The second school of thought on Iraq was John McCain, who held a similar view about indefinite occupation, but unlike Bush he was willing to say it openly.
So, McInsane would literally come out and propose 100 years of occupation.


And the 3rd school of thought is Obama & Biden, who believe in a fairly quick withdrawal. This idea was victorious.
So when they came in, they decided to implement the existing Sofa for real, and not as stonewalling tactic.

Maury said...

Americans and Brits are targeted by jihadis trained at terror camps in Afghanistan. THAT makes it our business. We invaded Afghanistan AFTER 9/11,not before. And only after the Taliban were given every opportunity to avoid a conflict. All they had to do was expel Al Queda. We're not gonna just sit back and wait for our skyscrapers to go boom. Peckerhead.

Dolly said...

I saw on FoxNews in 2001 that the Taliban was defeated. Why is there still fighting in 2010?

Apparently 3 Cross-worshippers were killed today, how sad.

(Not)

Maury said...

"with the expectation that the U.S. would renew again in 2012."

Bullshit Dolly. The agreement called for US troops to withdraw from Iraqi cities by June. Obama managed to implement that. The agreement called for all troops to be out of Iraq by the end of next year. Obama might be able to handle that as well. It was ALWAYS the stated intention to pull MOST troops out after parliamentary elections.

Obama fought hard to save Saddam's regime. He opposed the people of Iraq every step of the way. He drafted a bill to withdraw troops and hand over Iraq to Al Queda and Al Sadr. For him to take credit for a successful democracy is putrid.

"Apparently 3 Cross-worshippers were killed today"

The day is still young. One of your holy warriors is sure to splatter himself all over a mosque any time now. Al Queda kills 10 rock-worshippers for every cross-worshipper that dies. It's their way of getting on Allah's good side.

How much do you white christian terrorists want to bet that you will lose in Afghanistan? I know you enjoy killing women and children especially with drones because you are too scared to go in and fight like men, but are you really so delusional to think you are going to win.

Habis said...

The Afghan people under terrorist attack by the white christians in Helmand right now have been able to kill one of the terrorists from England who was on a terrorist mission half way across the world. Luckily this murderer will no longer be harming afghans in their own home and country. Still there are many dead enders who continue to right. The afghan resistance continues to resist as best they can. The world needs to support them.

Anand said...

Habis, do you think you are one hundredth the man of any of the heroes serving in the ANA?

The ANA will defeat your friends in Pakistan and Afghanistan; just as the IA (Iraqi Army) defeated your friends inside Iraq; and their allies in Syria, Jordan, Egypt and the Gulf.

May the Iraqis one day liberate the Arab world from its worthless dog manure dictators. Then Habis, the Arabs will be free.

Habis, does it make you cry that Marjah is the largest ANA military offensive since 2001? We don't know the outcome yet. However I hope the ANA smashed the Taliban and its foreign allies. Suspect you are praying for the Taliban, Al Qaeda and their allies to defeat the ANA. Who will get their wish?

Habis said...

The Taliban resistance is still strong. The White Christian terrorists have been able to kill some women and children as usual, but the freedom fighters are determined to win and they will. How much you guys want to bet the White Christian terrorists will not last in Afghanistan?

Habis said...

The white christian terrorists have just fired a missile into an Afghan home killing a family of 12. This is another example of the nature of the enemy the world is facing. You can be sure that within 24 hours, a slimy, well dressed, spokesperson for the US department of war and terrorism will come out and express his "regret" for the "mistake" and remind everyone that the white christians do not kill and murder, and even when they kill and murder, it is not killing and murder. They will also offer the afghans a hundred dollars for each human they killed. Afghans are cheap you know unlike the victims of the Pan-Am flight which each received millions.

Anand says:
"does it make you cry that Marjah is the largest ANA military offensive since 2001?"

It is an offensive of the Crucifix-huggers, your ANA chimpanzees are irrelevant.

Today, Joe Biden on Meet the Press mistakenly called the ANA: "Iraqi forces,"

because he momentarily forgot which cannon fodder he was talking about.

Apostate said...

The Iraqi forces are doing just fine in Iraq, Dolly the Sheepbrain. That's why the crusader army, which is 36% black, is confined to barracks and packing its bags. Still think you're gonna beat the Iraqi Army when the Americans leave. 80% of the Iraqi population are Shia and Kurds who would piss on Papa's Saddam's grave if they could. Do you really think you speak for them, Sheepbrain?

Dolly said...

The aggressors are packing their bags because they've realized the occupation was a stupid idea.

The loss of 4375 Cross-worshipping degenerates + limb amputations for others
did contribute to their decision that the war against Iraq was ultimately a mistake.

If everyone had acted like Maliki,
there would have been 0 killed and 0 wounded, and the U.S. could have comfortably occupied Iraq for eternity.

I don't believe your statistics about Shia.
Those stupid fucks will fold immediately after Uncle Sam leaves them deserted.

Why do I have a feeling if these were 1960s, Anand would spend time lionizing South Vietnamese army heroes?
