Surrender By Installment
Barak Obama’s Plan to get out of Iraq revealed today in a speech in Clinton Iowa could easily be referred to as a Surrender by Installment plan. Here is the the 4 main points of his “Plan” courtesty of CNN’s Political Ticker
- “Immediately begin to pull out troops engaged in combat operations at a pace of one or two brigades every month, to be completed by the end of next year.”
Sort of a surrender as you go plan… surrender 1 brigade at a time…
- “Call for a new constitutional convention in Iraq, convened with the United Nations, which would not adjourn until Iraq’s leaders reach a new accord on reconciliation.”
Oh sure let the guys who managed the Oil for food Program convene a Constitutional convention… That is gonna work…. Maybe some Corrupt UN official has a relative that needs to pad the bank account.
- “Use presidential leadership to surge our diplomacy with all of the nations of the region on behalf of a new regional security compact.”
So letting terrorist supporting regimes influence the government of Iraq is going to make everything all better??? yeah that makes sense…
- “Take immediate steps to confront the humanitarian disaster in Iraq, and to hold accountable any perpetrators of war crimes.”
With the talk of holding accountable those who commit war crimes you would think that he would also want to hold accountable Saddam Hussein for his crimes against humanity…
“I opposed this war from the beginning,” Obama says, according to the excerpts. “I opposed the war in 2002. I opposed it in 2003. I opposed it in 2004. I opposed it in 2005. I opposed it in 2006. I introduced a plan in January to remove all of our combat brigades by next March. And I am here to say that we have to begin to end this war now.”
Then again maybe not..
We have one way out of Iraq that protects our national securty, ensures the people of Iraq will no longer be the victims of a brutal dictatorship, and establishes foundations of freedom and democracy in a region that is lacking in both. That is for us to WIN!!! If Democrats like Obama, Clinton etc… would put as much effort into doing what we need to do to win this war as they do in undermining our troops and the mission they are sent to perform we would be much closer to achieving that victory.
