Petraeus Hearings

Mr. Levin isn't being nice.

Update after viewing th first half:
The dissenters were few and far between.

Hillary did suck up to her base well. Though with her natural dishonesty, it's impossible to impart any meaning to her words. I would've believed her if she had put up a fight on war funding, or on the torture bill. But she gave Bush a free pass on those.

The morons that were trying to find a way to get the Iraqi people to pay for the war, made me feel sick to my stomach. Mrs. Wicker tried to convince Petraeus that the the Iraqi people should pay for the construction of our military bases in Iraq.

Petraeus seemed uncomfortable with that line of questioning, likely because he knows that there is no way the Iraqis will ever claim those buildings. When we leave, I assume we'll blow them up. If we never leave, then they are property of the US Military.

Right now, Ambassador Crocker is discussing the agreement with Iraq that he didn't have any direct knowledge of, before this hearing. It sounds like a list of talking points put together by a team of aids, trying to pull his ass out of the frying pan. It's full of happy and comforting sentences that doesn't seem to reflect reality.

He talks about the reopening of open air markets, and yet, we just shelled one of those into oblivion.

He's good with meaningless acronyms and inventing phrases on the fly. Earlier he argued that Iraq could repay the cost of blowing the shit of their country in the Post-Kinetic phase. I guess that means, after everything in Iraq quits moving. So after all of the Iraqi people have been slaughtered, we can take their money, and use it to repay the American taxpayer? Yeah right.

McCain and Leiberman made their love coos at Petraeus, and gushed and blushed as they fawned over him and praised him for the miracles he's performed in Iraq. McCain went on to talk about how Al Qaeda is a sub-Shiite organization that is being trained in Iran. For those that are getting confused, Al Qaeda is an organization of Sunnis that come from Saudi Arabia. They are at odds with Iran, and Iran's support of the Shiite population.

No mention was made of the fact that 75% of the insurgents are Sunnis coming from Saudi Arabia.

Levin was right and the surge and siegure enablers Betrayus and crock-a-shi@ lie like rugs as is required by Bush until he can have his war with Iran.
Despite what they say about Iraq falling apart Bush guaranteed it the day he attacked to get at Iran. Nothing they say or do will stop the middle easts total breakdown. This will ony end one way if we hang there as the right wants.
The future has been set for us by Bush regardless of who is President and even if we went home and said we wanted peace we will be fighting Bush's forever wars for many years to come.
If anyone can not see the mood of the world and thinks they can turn it around, they are brain dead or a Politician!

wease
It's always been blatantly obvious and sickening. Since we do not matter we can just watch the lies and keep talking.

Bushco and the military have stated in no uncertain terms that they don't care what the American people think, and that they don't need their support / approval either. They're going it alone, literally. A draft would be so frigging unpopular right now it wouldn't even be funny. I wouldn't sit on a draft board for all the tea in China.
