Putting the LIE to statusQUObama’s “Iraq withdrawal”
Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well Cricketeers, much has been made of statusQUObama’s promise to “withdraw all combat troops from Iraq.” That phrasing was a half truth to begin with. It was nothing more then the usual loose change poetics we have been getting from statusQUObama! Ethically challenged statusQUObama has already RENAMED two brigades that are combat troops so as to give the illusion that they are now somehow “advisers” who will be “training” the Iraqi military. Sleazy name gaming!
That is just the beginning. Now the neolib klinton klan hillbillies are balking at other parts of their own “withdrawal process” by coming up with “exceptions.” This from the zoo york times:
Exceptions to Iraq Deadline Are Proposed
By ROD NORDLAND
Published: April 26, 2009
BAGHDAD — The United States and Iraq will begin negotiating possible exceptions to the June 30 deadline for withdrawing American combat troops from Iraqi cities, focusing on the troubled northern city of Mosul, according to military officials. Some parts of Baghdad also will still have combat troops.
Everywhere else, the withdrawal of United States combat troops from all Iraqi cities and towns is on schedule to finish by the June 30 deadline, and in many cases even earlier. But because of the level of insurgent activity in Mosul, United States and Iraqi military officials will meet Monday to decide whether to consider the city an exception to the deadline in the Status of Forces Agreement, or SOFA, between the countries.
“Mosul is the one area where you may see U.S. combat forces operating in the city” after June 30, the United States military’s top spokesman in Iraq, Maj. Gen. David Perkins, said in an interview.
In Baghdad, however, there are no plans to close the Camp Victory base complex, consisting of five bases housing more than 20,000 soldiers, many of them combat troops. Although Victory is only a 15 minute drive from the center of Baghdad and sprawls over both sides of the city’s boundary, Iraqi officials say they have agreed to consider it outside the city.
SONOFABUSH! To all YOU IDIOTS who thought that voting in statusQUObama and his gang of feckless appaRATchiks would lead to the end of the war. I TOLD YOU THAT IDIOT WOULD CONTINUE IT AT ALL COSTS!
In case you thought that statusQUObama would at least live up to most of the agreement with the Iraqi government made before he became prez, think again! This from ap:
Iraq: US raid ‘crime’ that breaks security pact
By BRIAN MURPHY,
Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD – Iraq’s prime minister denounced a deadly U.S. raid on Sunday as a “crime” that violated the security pact with Washington and demanded American commanders hand over those responsible to face possible trial in Iraqi courts.
DAGNABIT! This is further evidence that statusQUObama and company are as big on doing war crimes as laBUSHanostra was! Then there is laBAMAnostra’s foot dragging on prosecution of the war criminals of the bush crime family. This from the washingtOOn post:
Advisers Pressed On Memo Fallout
Obama’s Stance On Trials Is Issue
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, April 27, 2009
White House officials yesterday confronted more questions about President Obama’s position on prosecution of former Bush lawyers who drafted memos legalizing harsh interrogation methods used on terrorism suspects.
In appearances on Sunday morning talk shows, Obama advisers sought to portray the president as constitutionally removed from the question of whether anyone should be prosecuted for breaking the law.
“What he has said is that anyone who followed the advice of the Justice Department and did any kind of acts that were within the confines of that advice, he doesn’t think we should prosecute,” adviser Valerie Jarrett said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“The rest of it,” she added, “he leaves up to the U.S. attorney general. That is who is supposed to make decisions about prosecution.
“So I think the president has been very clear, and what he said is, we need to be a nation of laws, we need to be consistent, and he leaves it to the attorney general to figure out who should be prosecuted for what.”
Press secretary Robert Gibbs used the same argument on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
This is disgraceful! There need be full out congressional investigations of the bush crime family and indictments must follow. statusQUObama and company are required by law to see that laBUSHanostra is held legally responsible for the war crimes, such as the above, they committed from 2001 – 2008! It looks like statusQUObama doesn’t want to do that because laBAMAnostra is doing the self same war crimes that laBUSHanostra was doing!
Besides holding laBUSHanostra and the other corpoRATeers responsible for their crimes. The two things we need now out of washingtOOn are:
- A 50% reduction in the military budget
- Single payer universal national health care
Here’s my FAVE endorsement for single payer universal national health care, from the neolib who now refuses to give it to us:
Let’s see, in the video statusQUObama had a step by step process to get a single payer health care plan:
- dems take back white house CHECK √
- dems take back senate CHECK √
- dems take back house o’reps CHECK √
- PAY UP BITCH! Mauhahahahahahahah
The ongoing ClapSotronics serving suggestion:
EAT THE FUCKING pig corpoRATe rich!
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are sick of the lies from statusQUObama!
