Tomorrow, in yet another demonstration of their deeply non-serious approach to the world we live in, the Democratic led Congress will send the emergency spending bill, laden with pork and crippled by time-lines, to the President who will veto it.
It requires a degree of myopia bordering on blindness to miscalculate so badly as the Democrats have done.
David Brookes summarizes in brief some of the inherent contradictions in the Democratic narrative about Iraq, who keep repeating we need to focus on Afghanistan apparently unaware that in Iraq we are now primarily fighting al Qaeda, who are being aided and abetted by Iran; Congress & Iraq: Declaring Defeat:
Wait a minute, you say: What about all those recent deadly bombings? The bad news is real - but those attacks are mostly the evil handiwork of al Qaeda and foreign jihadists (80 to 90 percent of suicide bombers are non-Iraqi). Osama's henchmen are still intent on fomenting a sectarian civil war - and hastening a U.S. retreat by influencing politics back here. Congress' action must leave them pumped.
Interestingly, such luminous intellects as Harry Reid, who apparently knows the war is lost because he has difficulty with the English language (note to Harry: General Petraues indeed said the war could only be won through political means, but he also said we needed to use military means as a prerequisite to provide the setting for the political victory) suggests the real fight is in Afghanistan, against al Qaeda, yet al Qaeda says the central front is in Iraq. Maybe Harry missed the memo, 7/7 ‘mastermind’ is seized in Iraq :
The al-Qaeda leader who is thought to have devised the plan for the July 7 suicide bombings in London and an array of terrorist plots against Britain has been captured by the Americans.
Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi, a former major in Saddam Hussein’s army, was apprehended as he tried to enter Iraq from Iran and was transferred this week to the “high-value detainee programme” at Guantanamo Bay.
Remarkable: Iraq, Iran, and al Qaeda all in the same person!
