GUEST,282RA BS: Sheehan vs. Pelosi (197* d) RE: BS: Sheehan vs. Pelosi 26 Aug 07

The reason the democrats are wrong is because they should have the guts and sense to point out that there is no such thing as a quick exit. An exit from Iraq can only be done one way and it will simply take time. Lots of equipment has to be brought back (much much more will be left there) before we can start removing too many troops.

The point is, we need to start on that now. If we dont get started now, we will have to leave everything over there and we cannot afford to leave everything over there or we may as well hand all that equipment to the insurgents, al-Qaida, militias, etc, becauset ehy will own it after we leave.

WE HAVE TO START EVACUATION NOW! It is our Plan B and we need to get it in place and we have very little time as it is. We're not going to be in Iraq for years because we don't have the money or the people short of raising taxes and starting a draft and neither is going to happen.

The surge is not working--it's throwing water on a grease fire. The gains they claim they are making are piddling and will have no effect whatsoever in the long run. I have no faith in Petraeus. He's a yes-man. Bush doesn't hire anything else. Bush is not going to allow them to recommend a withdrawal in September. So the White House has the press build up this "September Report" bullshit to wind the public up with it. Then when it is released, it is simply going to say, "We're making REAL GAINS! We can't stop now! Victory is just around the corner." And YOU KNOW very well the democrats are going to cave in again and give Bush more funding.

They don't want to stop the war. Listen to Clinton. She wants al-Maliki removed. Why would someone against the war who wants the troops to come home suddenly start bitching about removing al-Maliki? Why would anyone against the war give two shits about him? Only someone who intends to give a long-time commitment to Iraq would bother (and, remember, that's going to entail raising taxes and starting a draft). If Clinton gets the White House DO NOT COUNT ON THIS WAR TO DO ANYTHING BUT ESCALATE. Hillary Clinton is not to be trusted.

Nancy Pelosi is a waste of time. Thoroughly useless. She could stay home everyday and no one would notice the difference. She can't stand up to a failed president so she is of no consequence to anyone--least of all herself. So if Sheehan beats her, it would be no great loss. Sheehan might even get something done which would be a real switch. With friends like Pelosi, I'd rather have enemies--at least they're entertaining.

All they have to do is cut off funding. The way to do it without being able to override a veto is gridlock. Now are you crazy lunatics in here going to tell me Congress doesn't know how to gridlock????? The ONE THING this pack of rejects know how to do quite well and suddenly they can't seem to remember how. So they give into Bush instead. And they will continue to give into Bush until Pelosi is removed. She and Clinton do not want to stop the war--have no intention of it. They think the democrats can take it over and win it and if that doesn't convince all Americans of the necessity to end the war now--what will?
