Dems End Troop Withdrawal Debate, Setting the Stage for the Next Great Big Bushevik Lie Come September
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV) pulled the plug Wednesday on the troop-withdrawal debate after failing to obtain the 60 votes needed to overcome the Repug filibuster. As a result, it's kind of a dead issue legislatively until September, when the highest-ranking uniformed U.S. military puppet in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, provides his much anticipated progress report to the Bush administration. And if history is any barometer, the Busheviks--the smarmy, calculating, deceptive miscreants who brought you the other great American lies about 9/11 and the Iraq war--will ram another great fallacy down our collective throats. This time the tall tale will be about all the wonderful progress being made on the ground, the "benchmarks being met, and the success of Bush's inane troop "surge."
Yes my friends, coming this September to a theatre near you from the producers of "WMD and the Mushroom Clouds," "Yellow Cake Uranium," "Mission Accomplished" and "The Insurgency is in its Last Throes" will come their new project, "See, the Iraq War is a Success!" Is there anyone naive enough on this planet who thinks the great general is going to come to Washington to tell his delusional boss that we need to withdraw the troops because our military effort there is failing?
Forget the fact that the National Intelligence Estimate released this week stated that al Qaeda is a major threat still, indicating that six years after 911 we seem to have made no material progress in the ridiculously coined "war on terror."
So here we are, facing grave threats still from Osama bin Laden and those who attacked us on 911, and the Busheviks--despite monumental public disapproval for the war both here, abroad and in Iraq itself--will likely not only perpetuate the lies come September, but may even attempt to expand this insanity by using whatever BS Petraeus comes back with as justification to send even more troops...creating an even bigger surge since the first one is going so swimmingly. And at the very outside chance Petraeus does advise his boss it's not going well and it's time to start the withdrawal, then you can bet your ass Petraeus will follow Eric Shinseki and all the other generals who were summarily booted for not espousing the Bushevik propaganda.
Rather than lying down and admitting defeat, Reid and the rest of the Democratically-controlled House and Senate should take this issue to the American people and force the Repugs' hand. Until the Dems play very rough hardball, the Busheviks will continue to deceive, distort and lie their way throuigh this war. It's their war. And it's their legacy. They have nothing to gain from calling it quits. So, the war will continue over there until the political battle can be won by the Dems over here. Remember Harry, in Washington, nice guys finish last. Stay tuned....
