Editorial: Iraq’s ongoing shock and awe/Iraqis’ lives still dictated by fear, violence

12:00 AM CDT on Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Ever since the bombs started falling five years ago today, the Iraq war has been the focus of worldwide controversy. Nevertheless, it was hard to deny the sense of promise at the war’s outset, when it appeared that Iraqis would finally be free of a ruthless dictatorship. […]

Dear dingo…nice try at the spin ordeal but see if Billy Clinton can get you some of those used cigars from what’s-her-face…

Hard to deny? What was so hard about it? Ruthless dictatorship? Was that The Reason for the war? Sometimes I have to be very concerned about some of my fellow Texicans.

[…] That sense of promise quickly got buried under a mountain of flubs and missteps: the unobstructed looting, the Iraqi army’s dissolution, “Mission Accomplished,” our slow response to the insurgency, Abu Ghraib, de-Baathification. Subsequent investigations, including one from the Pentagon last week, debunked all notions about weapons of mass destruction and a link between al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein’s regime. […]

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRG!! What moronic drivel!!

Mountain of flubs and missteps? Be specific you asswipe! Were there mistakes? Yes there were. And those mistakes were made by whom? I know the answers you idiot so please be specific. That way, your stupidity won’t be so obvious. The poor thing mentions 6 items and that somehow equates to “mountains” of errors. Damn libtard.

And I just LOVE how the media takes that Pentagon report and cherry picks data from it. Maybe this turkey should like ACTUALLY read the damn report? Is that too much to ask of these politically agenda driven libtard dweebs? Better yet, perhaps Ray Robison’s book Both In One Trench would suffice? Ray was on the ISG team and was also translating documents and such. I have read both…the book by Ray, three times and this Pentagon report twice…

This report is a redacted version of the original Iraqi Perspectives Report-Saddam and
Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents, Volume 1, dated January
2007.
This report is a redacted version of the original Iraqi Perspectives Report-Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents, Volume 1, dated January 2007.

This redacted version was prepared by the original authors following a classification review by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) pursuant to a request by the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy.

All redactions from the original are in accordance with the 15 September 2007 DIA Memorandum, Subject: Classification Review of Iraqi Perspectives Project (IPP) Report Saddam and Terrorism. As stated in said memorandum, the DIA “made every effort to balance national security concerns, requirements of law, and the needs of an informed democracy and focused the redactions to the necessary minimum.” Moreover, all redactions have been made pursuant to Executive Orders 12958 (as amended) and 12333, and US Code provisions 5 USC 552, 5 USC 552a, and 10 USC 424.

And, the “Mission Accomplished” thing? The all so obvious ignorance of this particular editorial rapist of verbiage is nearly too much to stomach. Perhaps the poor slog should spend some more time amongst some Navy types to see what the term “Mission Accomplished” means for deployed vessels. Damn libtards.

[…] But we gain nothing by rehashing yesterday’s problems. The facts on the ground today are what matter, and those facts comprise a muddled picture suggesting neither victory nor defeat. Iraqis are rid of one dictator, but their daily lives still are dictated by fear of terrorist bombings, kidnappings, sectarian violence, joblessness and uncertainty. […]

If we gain nothing by rehashing yesterday’s problems, then why bring them up in the first place…hm? A muddled picture of what? Neither victory or defeat? Like a stalemate? This goon is a pathetically enabled emotional twit. I bet it drives a “green car” or rides a bike to work.

It never ceases to amaze me that these types never take into consideration that the reason(s) this war has taken so long is due directly to the political aspirations of the ones that bought off on this war from the beginning and then changed their minds when election season came around. I wonder how many women and men in uniform they got killed, wounded or maimed. I wonder how many Iraqi men, women and children that they had a direct cause of their death. I wonder what they say to the demons when they come calling at night. I wonder how many died when they lied.

The war has been prolonged by American politicians sticking their noses into areas in which they have no business being. The successes have come because General Petraeus released the ROE and that is the bottom line. The Commanders before General Petraeus were Clinton Era Throwbacks, plain and simple. As proof of that, how many went to the Leftinistra when they were released from duty? I know the answer…do you?

[…] Just Monday, a report by the International Committee of the Red Cross warned that Iraq faces a humanitarian crisis, with millions lacking adequate clean water, sanitation and health care. “Five years after the outbreak of the war in Iraq, the humanitarian situation in most of the country remains among the most critical in the world,” the 15-page report says. […]

An emotional dufus rambles. Hello? There is a war on and your kind only prolong it. The Red Cross? Please. We all know who ands what runs that group, don’t we? Wow! 15 pages of crap!

[…] It’s hard to argue that the lives of Iraqis are better. […]

Not if you are an Iraqi that used to live in fear of the rape rooms, the prisons of no return and the infamous shredders. Damn libtard moron.

[…] While the U.S. troop surge has brought levels of violence and casualties down, life in Baghdad and other major cities is fraught with danger. Iraq remains among the most violent countries in the world, as underscored by the explosions that punctuated a Monday visit by Vice President Dick Cheney. […]

Yes. There is a war on. Now, STFU and STFD. Thank you.

[…] Millions of Iraqis have been displaced by the war. A massive population migration has split the country along sectarian lines. Families who fled may never be able to return to their homes. […]

And the point is what, exactly? Have the homes they can never return to gone? The country has ALWAYS been split among sectarian lines! Where has this idiot been hiding?

[…] So how do we assess the war’s progress after five years? In Iraq on Monday, Mr. Cheney termed it “a difficult, challenging but nonetheless successful endeavor” and “well worth the effort.”

Others, such as Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution, have devised lists of benchmarks by which to objectively judge progress. Mr. O’Hanlon’s list indicates we’ve advanced in only five of 11 key areas. On the benchmark list devised by the Iraqi government and endorsed by the White House last year, only three out of 18 goals have been met. […]

Oh good grief. Again with the politically driven bench mark crap again. Good Lord! Get over yourself little one. The Iraqi government has made advances LEAP YEARS ahead when compared to the self-vaunted American government over the last few years. Idiot. How many of our own CONgress Critters have been threatened with death via kidnappings, assassinations, car-bombs and other means of death and destruction? And yet, the Iraqi government recently passed SEVERAL of the much adored “bench marks”? Moron libtards. I swear!

[…] Transparency International rates Iraq the third-most corrupt country on the planet. As security improves, thousands of displaced Iraqis will try to return home, only to find that they will have no place to live and no jobs because a third of Iraqis are unemployed. Even though oil production is slightly up from 2004 levels, households still are receiving only 64 percent of the energy they need. […]

Yes. There is a war going on and at the moment, that 64% is well over TWICE what it was BEFORE the war. Please enter ALL the facts you libtard asswipe. Thank you.

[…] Mr. Cheney has made wrong calls before on Iraq, and while we acknowledge progress on several fronts, it would be deceptive to label this war “successful.” […]

Another vague comment made by an uneducated parrot of stupidity. Name one instance, please…dumbass libtard.

[…] We’re glad Saddam Hussein and his murderous regime are gone. But the international trust and cooperation that the White House squandered to accomplish that goal will take years to rebuild. […]

Just what in the hell are you yammering about? The international trust? The international what? Who gives a rat’s ass about the international anything? Our country was attacked by terrorists and those nations that harbored terrorists. International trust my ass. Which international countries “fought us” and which ones of those that “fought us” were disclosed as being involved with Oil For Food? Talk about that one for a while you stupid leftwing idiot.

[…] Five years on, regrettably, we have our shock and awe. Shock that the Iraq invasion fell so woefully short of improving Iraqis’ lives. Awe in the failure of the Bush administration to address mistakes sooner.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!! (hic hic) WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!

Let me see if I have this correct. The editorial says in the second paragraph, “But we gain nothing by rehashing yesterday’s problems.”, so we suffer through a zillion wasted words gushing from an idiot that does nothing but rehash “yesterday’s problems”. The whole article is nothing but moonbat rhetoric. I hope the pathetic cretin gets this shredding piece.

Berkeley CA Is Toast And Here Is Why

~Snooper~

At 0516 this morning, I checked my Google Reader and what did I find? A message from Melanie Morgan and therein was a letter from a prominent business man pulling everything out of Berkeley and, well, read it your self…

Dan Sorkin (a great friend of KSFO Radio and former DJ) forwarded this e-mail from the newly joined ranks of Berzkeley Boycotters!

Berkeley clerk to Marine Corps: You’re Not Welcome

BERKELEY, Calif. Local officials in this liberal city say it’s time for the U.S. Marines to move out.

The City Council has voted to tell the Marines their downtown recruiting station is not welcome and ‘if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome guests.’

The measure passed this week by a vote of 8-1.

Now check this out, here is a letter a businessman wrote to the Mayor of Berkeley. Is this a great country or what?

Dear Mayor Bates,

In that you and your city have chosen to gravely insult the brave men and women, who have indeed bought you that right with their blood, I am informing you that my company will no longer do business with any of our current suppliers located in the Berkeley, California metro area.

In that my company is in international resort real estate development, and do business with and am associated with, developers and investors worldwide, I am informing all of my contacts, associates and patrons that we will no longer do any business of any sort with anyone living in the Berkeley area.

In that we/MDG Resorts are currently building a state of the art mega-yacht marina, all of the suppliers of Marina equipment, all owners of Yachts, all suppliers of Yacht materials & supplies, all yacht brokers and all tangential yacht business purveyors will likewise be informed that we will not do any business whatsoever with anyone from the Berkeley area.

Likewise all suppliers of building materials, both interior and exterior, currently associated with any of our several resort developments (Brisamar 300+ villas and 200+ condos: Porto Hussong, 500+ condos, 180 slip mega-yacht marina) both of which I might add have international recognition by virtue of glowing reports in Robb Report, Wall Street Journal, Yacht World, Forbes.

I will likewise inform all of our investors, most of whom are very wealthy yacht owners, casino owners, high net worth international businessmen, of our decision to essentially boycott all products and providers located in, or associated with in any way whatsoever, Berkeley, Ca.

Trust me when I say that having been in the real estate development business for over 35 years, our list of contacts and associates is long and very, very impressive. We, and I personally, are going to recomend that they ALL along with us boycott your city, its purveyors, suppliers, and businesses and CHARITIES of every kind.

You have every right to choose to take the obnoxious anti-military stance you have taken, and as stated, that right was bought for you with the blood of better men than you.

I too have every right to do all that I can to insure that your city suffers consequences arising from that obnoxious, sickening stance.

Cordially,

Brian G Dennard

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about right there! HOOAH? As my DI used to say, “OUTFRIGGINSTANDING!

In another piece from Melanie Morgan, yet another business man has pulled out of Berkeley. Behold…

Good Morning “Code Pink Corps”

Our company has just completed an analysis of the funds we have spent during 2007 within the city limits of Berkeley. The number was larger than I expected: $230,716. This amount is broken down in the following categories:

Meals and meeting expenses: $43,807; Printing, copies and imaging services: $36,954. Shipping expenses $18,534; temporary employment $103,954; Office supplies and equipment purchases: $27,467.

Our expenses above in Berkeley increased by about 12% this past year. We have budgeted a similar increase for 2008.

Because of the actions of “CodePink” and the Berkeley City Council we find that we must now exercise our ‘freedom to act’ and not do business within the City of Berkeley any longer. Over the next five years, the City of Berkeley will lose just from our organization from $1.4 to $1.7 million in business.

We will still grow our business successfully but we will fulfill our service needs, including meals and meeting expenses, at locations OTHER THAN BERKELEY. We are also encouraging our colleagues and business associates to do the same. Many will not be as direct as we are in communicating to you our actions.

While we regret that this action will hurt many worthy individuals and businesses in Berkeley, we are sure to gain a more friendly business environment elsewhere as our business continues to thrive. Gee, ain’t freedom and free markets great?

You’ve made your decisions … we have made ours.
