From my friend Spree:
Stolen from Spree…this never ceases to amaze me either. I was just over at BlandlyUrbane’s place reading and commenting on another bleeding heart liberal communist pinko moron Andrew “Moosetwt” Sullivan. He is one of those wanna-be generals as well. These idiots never stop.
In The News:
It is about damn time the Pentagon tells the surrender crowd, especially Hillary Clinton, who changes her mind as soon as the “polls’ tell her to, how damaging their public desire to force America’s defeat is to our National Security and how it demoralizes our troops!!!
WASHINGTON – The Pentagon told Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton that her questions about how the U.S. plans to eventually withdraw from Iraq boosts enemy propaganda.
In a stinging rebuke to a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman responded to questions Clinton raised in May in which she urged the Pentagon to start planning now for the withdrawal of American forces.
A copy of Edelman’s response, dated July 16, was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.
“Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia,” Edelman wrote.
He added that “such talk understandably unnerves the very same Iraqi allies we are asking to assume enormous personal risks.”
Here is Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman Bio. I would say he is much more qualified to know what he is talking about, and shows perfectly, that Hillary, DOESN’T.
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, Hillary is gonna complain to his boss because she doesn’t LIKE THE TRUTH.
Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines called Edelman’s answer “at once outrageous and dangerous,” and said the senator would respond to his boss, Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
Gates would do well to tell her to kiss his ass, if she cannot handle the truth, then she shouldn’t be doing everything in her power to HELP THE ENEMY.
(If Gates has to show more diplomacy because of his position, well I don’t, sooooo HILLARY, KISS “MY” ASS“)
The “left” is atwitter with indignation…. How dare the Pentagon tell it like it is? Actually I think they are just pissed because, finally, years after they should have, our admin and our military are finally deciding to weigh in on the war in the media.
More on this from Fox News, (I am only adding this link cause it makes “certain” peoples heads explode)
In the meantime, we have the Sunni’s ending their parliament boycott, which brings Iraq one step closer to those political benchmarks that will be due in September.
In other news, our U.S Diplomats seem to be seeing progress in Iraq, which of course the left is completely ignoring, because it just doesn’t fit with their defeatist attitude.
We already covered General Petraeus and his fascinating interview telling us how much progress is being made in Iraq as well as showing us what difficulties lies ahead.
Take Our Country Back posted this morning here about the latest Centcom news.
If you missed it in the previous post, head over to USA Today to see exactly why Victory in Iraq is vital to the U.S.
On The Blogs:
Also remember to take a look at how the Iraqi citizens are banding together to help the U.S, Coalition and Iraqi Security Forces to help route out insurgents and al-Qaeda members.
Amy Proctor from Bottom Line Up Front shows us that when a liberal MSM actually decides to leave the comfort of DC to embed with our troops in Iraq, they come away with a whole different attitude… CNN war correspondents are no exception. (3 minute video.)
Debbie Hamilton from Right Truth gives us more about the al-Qaeda leader in Iraq that we captured on July 4th, 2007. Seems he is singing like a little birdie.
Mike’s America has some awesome, related Quick Takes. Cartoons included!!!!! That first quote cracked me up.
Demediacratic Nation points out something I have mentioned before, the “progressive liberals” only want us to listen to the Commanders on the ground in iraq, IF those commanders are saying what they want. Otherwise, why listen to them?
Gazing at the Flag says there should be a special place in hell for those that try to scam others using our fallen heroes families.
Back to Hillary Clinton for a second, Miss Beth’s Victory Dance brings us some of her more memorable quotes.
Tanker Brothers brings us some words from a Gold Star Mother, for those unaware of that term, it means a mother who has lost a child in the military.
The Tygrrrr Express shows us some of the good, the bad and the ugly.
Woman Honor Thyself brings us Bur-Kas Bawling and Bellowing.
Finally, Heroes, from Yankee Mom.
This has been my look, so far, from around the blogosphere and in the news.
More might be coming.
