Once again, you've demonstrated amazing reading comprehension, struck.

Unico, Kucinich? If so, damn I underestimated the guy. Unfortunately I think the press is so fixated on Hillary/Obama that I don't know if they'll ever get around to reporting on this.

Why yes it sure is! It is the same 12 step policy he had last time he ran.

It is very unfortunate Clinton and Obama are getting all the attention, because neither really have shown any sort of plans of strategy for Iraq.

tell me anywhere in there where it starts with, "the iraqi government can.......

nowhere. everything is set up by people in washington who have no idea about what is really going on there. they do not know anything about the region other than reading reports, and that is not enough to truly know how a country needs to be run.

Is the surge working?


Well, look at how desperate Harry Reid and the Democrats are to stop it.


I wonder what they are really worried about?

given how the adminstration has run this war by "listening to the generals," it's fairly clear that no one, but no one, has any idea how this "country" should be run.

looking foward to another 30 years of Vietnam-esque rationalizations and scapegoating by the Right after they lose ANOTHER war.

clearly, it's Democrats who know how to run a war. WW2? Democrat. Bosnia? Democrat.

sure, you can pick on Grenada or Panama if you want to swing a dick around. but if you want to get the job done, go to the Democrats.

JFK inherited BOP from Eisenhower.

Mogadish was inherited from Bush 1.

in fact, Iraq was inherited from Bush 1 by Bush 2.
