Iraqi PM Paints Rosey Picture of War

Perhaps mindful of the negative response shown by Democrats and Republicans in Congress yesterday who do not agree with his stance on the Israeli-Lebanese conflict, Iraqi Prime Minister Al-Maliki did not bother to mentioning it in his speech to a joint session this morning. Not only did he neglect the conflict, but he again failed to define Hezbollah as a terrorist organization when he spoke about Iraq being on “the front lines of the war on terror”.

His speech went on with no mention of the ongoing violence in Iraq and the constantly rising civilian death toll. Many Democrats are taking issue with his rosey depiction of the situation on the ground.

Meanwhile, in a press conference yesterday, a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff seemed a bit unsure of our progress (or lack there of) in Iraq. When asked if we were winning in Iraq he stumbled for a good six seconds and blurted “I wont say we’re winning but we’re not losing”.

When will it be made clear to the American people that the war is turning into a serious civil war that we cannot controll. The only logical solution is to redeploy to and secure the boarders and let the Iraqis fight it out and provide the necessary tactical support. See John Murtha’s plan.

  1. OMFG, did you guys learn nothing from Afghanistan? We did exactly this, allowing the Taliban to take over, and give Al Qaeda the means and bases from which to launch 9/11?

    Do you guys really beleive that Iran would step aside in Iraq? Do you think Al Qaeda would step aside in Iraq? If the US and our allies left Iraq before the current govt is able to maintain itself, there is no doubt that the terrorists will end up in control of Iraq, just like they did in Afghanistan under the Taliban.

    Murtha is representive of everything that is wrong with the democratic party, and unless the Dems abandon the “lets let the terrorists take over the middle east”, they are heading for another string of defeats in the fall.

  2. That’s not the issue Chris presents.

    Hezbollah is a Shi’ite organization, but they are funded by Iran. So there will be some mixed feelings.

    How did you deduce this? This is completely irrational. Iraqi civilians are being attacked by Jordanians and Saudis, therefore, Iraq must be engulfed in a violent civil war??? I would agree with you in some circumstances but unless you understand the cause of war, you have no idea what you are talking about.
