WTF happened to “we’ll leave when the iraqi’s want us to leave”?
DAGNABIT! A few years back this idiot:
Said when asked when US troops will leave Iraq “we’ll leave when the iraqi’s want us to leave”! What happened to THAT? This from the washingtOOn post:
U.S., Iraq Scale Down Negotiations Over Forces
Long-Term Agreement Will Fall to Next President
Washington Post Staff Writer

U.S. and Iraqi negotiators have abandoned efforts to conclude a comprehensive agreement governing the long-term status of U.S troops in Iraq before the end of the Bush presidency, according to senior U.S. officials, effectively leaving talks over an extended U.S. military presence there to the next administration.
In place of the formal status-of-forces agreement negotiators had hoped to complete by July 31, the two governments are now working on a “bridge” document, more limited in both time and scope, that would allow basic U.S. military operations to continue beyond the expiration of a U.N. mandate at the end of the year.
SONOFABUSH! What the hell happened to the Iraqi’s making the decision? Now all of a sudden there’s negotiations? What the hell are they negotiating? CONTINUED US TROOP PRESENCE? The part about the U.N. mandate running out at the end of the year is interesting. After all labushanostra did to lie and cheat the U.N. into the mandate, you would think said mandate running out and the Iraqi’s trying to hint us out would be enough.
Even though g’dubya has since said he will agree to a timetable, there just ain’t any word as to WHEN!
The closest mcPain has come to saying when we’ll leave Iraq was in a May speech about his goals for his first term in office:
“By January 2013, America has welcomed home most of the servicemen and women who have sacrificed terribly so that America might be secure in her freedom, The Iraq War has been won.”
2013!? WTF!? THAT’S OVER FIVE MORE YEARS OF WAR!
nobama has been saying 16 months after he leaves office, MAYBE! WTF!? THAT’S AT LEAST TWO MORE YEARS OF WAR!
What are we getting from the co-joined twins of the apocalypse? On the one hand, Flip Flop nobama says maybe 16 months after he takes office, JUST MAYBE! nobama also wants to move our troops to deployment in “other conflits”! On the other hand Flip Flop mcPain says 16 months is too soon! HEY DICKWAD dems and repubs! The Iraqi’s are holding the door open! Call the army, air force, marines and navy and tell em EVERYONE OUTA THE POOL! Why is it these douchbags in washingtOOn don’t know how to git while the gittin’ is good?
Now we get this from ap:
Iraq: US Should Leave ASAP
(AP / BERLIN) — Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki says U.S. troops should leave Iraq “as soon as possible,” according to a magazine report, and he called presidential candidate Barack Obama’s suggestion of 16 months “the right time frame for a withdrawal.”
In an interview with Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine released Saturday, al-Maliki said he was not seeking to endorse Obama. The Illinois senator and likely Democratic nominee has pledged to withdraw combat troops from Iraq within 16 months if he is elected.
“That, we think, would be the right timeframe for a withdrawal, with the possibility of slight changes,” al-Maliki was quoted as saying. “Those who operate on the premise of short time periods in Iraq today are being more realistic. Artificially prolonging the tenure of U.S. troops in Iraq would cause problems.”
BUT WAIT! Then we get this from Reuters:
Iraq PM did not back Obama troop exit plan: government
BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki did not back the plan of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq and his comments to a German magazine on the issue were misunderstood, the government’s spokesman said on Sunday.
Ali al-Dabbagh said in a statement that Maliki’s remarks to Der Spiegel were translated incorrectly.
The German magazine said on Saturday that Maliki supported Obama’s proposal that U.S. troops should leave Iraq within 16 months. The interview was released on Saturday.
“U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, we think, would be the right time frame for a withdrawal, with the possibility of slight changes,” Der Spiegel quoted Maliki as saying.
It seems that the Iraqi government is just as flippity floppity as the US government. This plays right into the hands of the idiots in washingtOOn!
THE TWO PARTIES OF THE APOCALYPSE INTEND TO CONTINUE THIS WAR WITH NO END IN SIGHT!
THIS WAR IS NOTHING MORE THEN A MONEY GRAB FOR THEM AND THEIR corpoRATeer Partners in CRIME!
maliki = g’dubya = mcPain = nobama = FLIPPITY FLOPPITY!
Support and vote for the only presidential candidate who has a REAL EXIT STRATEGY! Out 6 months after NADER takes office! That means out in LESS THEN A YEAR FROM NOW! Bet the Iraqi PEOPLE will like that!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I wanna rock the vote for NADER!
