Here it comes.... The nail in our coffin
(Drudge) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have sent a letter to President Bush saying 'surging forces' in Iraq is a failed strategy and calling for phased redeployment instead...
So instead of fighting the War on Terror abroad, the Democratic leadership has now decided that the United States is better off fighting here at home. Jack Murtha is behind the 'redeployment' lingo, and remember he considers Okinawa Japan as an adequate redeployment location.
My prediction: Bush will say no, the Dems will say no funding, Bush will cave and compromise. He'll call for a slow draw down over a stated period of time (1-2 years).
End result: Iraq will be left as a cesspool of instability, and the only way it will find stabilization is by electing/propping up another dictator. Most likely a religious leader.
The U.S. will once again look like the 'Paper Tiger' that Osama labeled us as after our pull out of Somalia in the 1990s, and more attacks on the US will surely follow.
Why do you think Al Qaeda, Hamas, Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea all applauded the elections in November? They wouldn't be cheering for a new U.S. government had they been winning the war. Instead they knew from experience, and from history, that a Democratic led U.S. would walk away from victory.
Big picture, over the next 5 years be prepared for a resurgence of Fascism around the world. Whether backed by radical Islam, or lead by tyrants in South America, get ready for round two of the battle between Democracy and Fascism. Round one ended with 50+ million dead.
Round two will not be as kind.
We of course will sit out the next 5 years and watch while Europe, South America, and Africa fall... or simply hide. China will continue to grow, prosper, and stay out of it all. Russia will continue to gain immense power through its natural resources, further weakening Europe. Israel... it was nice knowing you. You'll be the first to glow, followed either by Paris or New York.
In conclusion, remember what 'Redeployment' has done to us throughout history. Was World War II won by 'redeploying troops'? No, we stood and fought... and won. Now turning and running, leaving millions to suffer, is considered honorable.
What an embarrassment to 'the Greatest Generation' that came before us. I never imagined ever being ashamed of government.
You might as well start learning how to say I Surrender in French and Arabic, because Al Qaeda just won a great victory. There is no doubt that Bin Laden is laughing his ass off right now.

I refuse to surrender. I'm loading my guns! Sadly, I agree with your assessment.5:08 PM
I refuse to surrender as well. I just wish 'our esteemed colleagues on the left' felt the same way.
Right about now I wish we had a Churchill and a Reagan.
The war in Iraq is aiding and abetting Al Qaeda's terrorist recruiting and training efforts. Even the Bush administration admitted this in the national intelligence estimate. People who are serious about not helping Osama bin Laden support immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
It should also be noted that it was obvious as early as the Spring of 2004 that Bush had already lost his war in Iraq.
If all the right-wingers who talk tough about Iraq would enlist in the military, we would have more than enough troops to increase levels without further damaging our military. Of course, there is no chance of that happening. Right-wingers are overwhlemingly voting against the war, with their feet.
Huh! Guess we got our comeuppance, EC! I feel properly chastised, don't you?11:58 AM
Join the military...CHECK.
Vote against the war...um, not so fast.
We had a hard time pulling the lever for the Republicans in this house b/c we had a very hard time telling them apart from their sketchy liberal counterparts.
Unhappy with the status quo? You bet.
I want the borders closed.
I want our troops' hands to be untied.
And, more than anything, I would love it if, just once, the enlightened beings would ask themselves what they think living under sharia law will actually feel like.
I'd say you hit the nail on the head, but that would be an understatement.
"The war in Iraq is aiding and abetting Al Qaeda's terrorist recruiting and training efforts."
That entire comment is whack, yo! I love it when these people make these statements and never say where they get their fantastic information! How do you FIGURE??? Like a LACK of our presence WON'T recruit? That if we up and jet from the Sandbox it'll be like, "Oh, nevermind. Those Western infidels can just, uhm, GO HOME. Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. Just let them go home and we'll forget the entire thing. Hey, Mahmet! Let's go get some kabobs instead!"
I was going to write a rant, but have decided to control myself.... After all, if I leave, it'll all go away.
