Suicide Bombs Fred Thompson's Victory

On the very same day that Fred Thompson declared victory for America in Iraq, a suicide bomber blew himself up at an Iraqi army checkpoint.

Why is it that the Republicans claim to have gained victory in Iraq? The Republicans said that the purpose of the Iraq War was to defeat terrorism. Well, there were no terrorists in Iraq when the USA invaded. Now, there are suicide bombings taking place all over Iraq.

How is that a victory over terrorism? It’s victory in the same sense, I guess, with which John McCain declared victory in Iraq back in 2003.

No kidding. On May 23, 2003, John McCain said of the war in Iraq: “We won a massive victory in a few weeks, and we did so with very limited loss of American and allied lives.”

How could someone who made such a tremendous miscalculation with the American military in Iraq be trusted with the power of Commander In Chief?

    “How could someone who made such a tremendous miscalculation with the American military in Iraq be trusted with the power of Commander In Chief?”

    Just look at Bush for the answer. Only trouble is the alternate reality (or “spin”) based citizens, cowering in fear of everything from disease to their neighbors’ pets and children, not to mention “terrorists” and a whole litany of other concerns, actually think (or are misled enough by rhetoric) that WE WON something (besides massive debt and continuing casualties which they ignore) in Iraq.
    Next it will be back to Afghanistan.
    Then off to Iran and then maybe Georgia.

    The question is: How do we change the minds of people who refuse to see and are convinced that progressives mean them harm?

    Should be an interesting election.

    Every suicide bomber that blows him/her self up you report…funny you don’t report any victories…like turning over Anbar province…that’s why people like you are just flapping your lips and saying nothing….the sooner Global Warming kills you people off the better the world will be….

  • Sam once again, you’re running away from reality.

    Before the USA invaded Iraq, there were no terrorists there. Now, after more than five years of trying to get Iraq under control, there are still terrorist attacks going on all over the country, including Anbar.

    So, how is that a victory over terrorism?

    John McCain and the Republicans said that the Iraq War was about defeating terrorism. In what sense, given that terrorists are still engaging in attacks all over Iraq, has terrorism been defeated there, Sam?

    Your stagnite views and distain for anything dealing with the Military…no…just the US military….is so horrible…that it borders on mental illness….

  • Tom

    Look who’s talkin’ about being mentally deficient! Sam, you twist people’s words around and don’t listen to what they say! No one said we weren’t proud of our military EXCEPT YOU in your baseless attack! You never answer the question, you just keep yelling about stuff you make up! Grow up and learn to read!

    In fact, you should just sod off and go somewhere where idiots with propaganda opinions are appreciated – like maybe Rush Limbaughs website.

    Peregrin Wood slams the US military at ever turn…calling the alsorts of evil things…I don’t even have to link to the posts they are slattered everywhere….I don’t yell…THIS IS YELLING….
