GUEST,282RA BS: Impeachment Action Needed (quickly) (280* d) RE: BS: Impeachment Action Needed (quickly) 09 Nov 07

>>How about a resolution to impeach Pelosi for failing to uphold her sworn constitutional duty?<<

No shit. She's been nothing but a major disappointment. Everybody has their price and she should be finding out when the pubs in Congress are asking for in order to cast yes to an impeachment. A little back-scratching here and a little feet-to-the-fire there and it could be done.

She's just not interested. I think that is criminal in itself.

>>Oh yes we know the feeling 282RA, after all WE allied with our Commonwealth were the only nation during the entire course of the "Cold War" to successfully defeat communist backed insurgencies not once but three times.<<

But you couldn't win in Iraq and now you're leaving. Very impressive.

>>While your lot were getting their arses kicked in Vietnam we were winning in Borneo having successfully defeated the insurgents in Malaysia shortly before (Took us some 17 years to do but we stuck to it and completed the task).<<

Yet you jumped in as a very 2nd fiddle to help us invade Iraq knowing we have a knack for getting our asses kicked even while you clean house. What's wrong with that picture?

>>Vietnam you cut and ran; Beirut you cut and ran; Somalia you cut and ran, not through any fault of your servicemen or women, but because of pure lack of political will at home, it is more than likely the same will happen in Iraq (where finally progress is beginning to be made, haven't heard recently from Joe Binden about how the "Surge" has failed) and in Afghanistan (Where ISAF and the US Forces are actually winning hands down).<<

Right but the American people want so badly to lose that we're refusing to recognize these clear victories. I mean if the surge has worked--bring em home! Is the Afghan rebels are beaing beaten hands down--declare and come home! Don't tell me--show me. I don't if you're right about this or not as long as our people start coming home.

So either we're winning but prefer to stay there using exhausted guys on stop-loss and mercenaries we have a pay fortune to or they won't lift a finger OR we're unable to leave because the country will go to hell if we do. Hmmm, which of those two possibilities sounds more likely to be the case?

Okay, keep em there! Let us know when you're ready to come home. I'm going shopping as my great president requested I do rather than worry myself silly about what's going on in Iraq. Mission accomplished and all that, eh what?

>>Again over a distance of some 12,000 miles (The longest ranged invasion force launched in history) we succeeded in driving out an invader who was based only 400 miles away - that was embarrassing ourselves???<<

Man, you guys are so great!!! So why didn't you prevail in Iraq? You know Bush was too stupid to conduct that war right. But you went along like lemmings and now you're getting out before anymore of you die like lemmings.

>>The whole thing done and dusted within 3 months, our forces had the full support of the British people as, more importantly, did the inhabitants of the Falkland Islands, that was backed up by the political will to carry the task out from start to finish irrespective of what it would take. That 282RA is how you get things done.<<

So why are you leaving Iraq without a victory?? And if you're claiming one, why aren't we coming home?
