    THE 'QUIT IRAQ' CAUCUS:

    RECIPE FOR MASSACRE

    Pelosi & Reid: Pushing for a pullout that's sure to yield vast carnage. July 11, 2007 --

    EVEN as our troops make serious progress against al-Qaeda-in-Iraq and other extremists, Congress - including Republican members - is sending the terrorists a message: "Don't lose heart, we'll save you!"

    Iraq's a mess. Got it. The Bush administration has made so many mistakes I stopped counting a year ago. But we've finally got a general in Baghdad - Dave Petraeus - who's doing things right. Iraqi politicians are still disgracing themselves, but our troops are killing America's enemies - with the help of our former enemies.

    Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq is suffering a humiliating defeat, as fellow Sunni Muslims turn against the fanatics and help them find the martyrdom they advertise. Yet for purely political reasons - next year's elections - cowards on Capitol Hill are spurning the courage of our troops on the ground.

    SNIP

    This has been the Bush-Cheney War. But it will only be fair to call the carnage after we run away the "Reid-Pelosi Massacres."

    I can't remember, is Al-Qaeda-In-Iraq the guys in the blue turbans or the red turbans? This game is so confusing.

    Little wonder it's confusing. One day we're arming and funding them the next day we're killing them. I gotta wonder about these guys who think this kind of hypocritical madness will one day bring some kind of grand benefit to humanity in general and the USA in particular. (and they think I'm the nutcase here, go figure eh? :laugh:)

    Wow: this is simultaneously idiotic and laughable. We all know that the New York Post has no credibility, but this is pathetic even for the Post.

    Exactly what progress has been made in this quagmire?

    Get a grip.

    I'm sure you recognize this as an opinion column, so the credibility of the Post matters not at all, just the opinion of the writer.

    One thing is sure, there is definitely historical precedence for a massacre of the locals when we cut and run without finishing the job.

    Doesn't it affect a paper's credibility if it publishes opinions based on fabricated facts?

    Massacre of the locals in Iraq has been occurring all throughout the however many years we have had a presence. Mass graves or dead bodies floating in the Tigris or Euphrates, market bombings, mosque and church bombings, etc. have been reported all throughout our tenure. So that argument for us to stay is not a valid one. Until these barbarians learn to value human life, whether they call themselves al-Qaeda, Sunni, or Shia, massacres will contnue with or without US presence in Iraq. Remebering, these are the savages that chew beating hearts out of live bunnies and bite the heads off of living frogs as a sign of courage. :rolleyes:

    What "facts" did the writer "fabricate"? Not that it matters. Opinion can be based on facts, wrong facts , or no facts at all. It's still opinion.

    Ever read the New York Times editorial page?

    Their "news" reporters can't even get the facts straight, let alone their opinion columnists.
