This is your Democractic Party Guys. How do you explain yourselves? Whose side are you guys on? FYI he said this within the last two weeks. If we're all Americans why aren't we rallying for the defeat of the bad guys? Explain yourselves.

It's a good thing the video wasn't cut off or anything. I'd hate not to hear everything he actually said.

Spin it any way you want. He said it.

I'm sure you tube has a longer version. The fact is the Dem's are invested politically in defeat in Iraq. They've sold us all out.

"People feel good about the Democratic Party, they just don't feel real good about the Congress itself."

And the Dolchsto▀legende v2.0 begins.

I'm certainly no Dem, but that's as nutty a post as you've ever made.



The Stab-in-the-back myth (German: Dolchsto▀legende, literally "Dagger stab legend") refers to a social myth and persecution-propaganda theory popular in Germany in the period after World War I through World War II. It attributed Germany's defeat to a number of domestic factors instead of failed militarist geostrategy. Most notably, the theory proclaimed that the public had failed to respond to its "patriotic calling" at the most crucial of times and some had even intentionally "sabotaged the war effort."

Same song, different singers. JMO

For the record, I'm not calling you a nazi. Not even of the soup variety.

If this is true, even if only moderately, then I'd be willing to hold off withdrawal for a short while longer...but only long enough (reasonable period not forever) for it to allow a political solution because without that it just won't happen.

There's is no miltary solution alone to what ails Iraq. I still say, it depends on what one considers a loss in Iraq. I say we accomplished what we wanted already. A civil war inside is a separate matter. That has to be fought by the people there. They have to handle their own problems even if it comes to blows. We had our civil war. Let 'em have theirs.

In the meantime the Sunni Arab Bloc has quit the Iraqi govt and the Iraqi premier faces a revolt within his party.

No Military Solution per top military advisor (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070731/wl_mideast_afp/usiraqmilitary_070731184200)

Guess that's what happens when ousiders hobble together a fake country with disparate parts, including dividing lines between tribes ( in order to weaken them). Made in Great Britain....the last empire before ours.
