Soldier Captured??? HELP!!!
Did anyone believe this? I saw it this morning and knew something was not right. How could this fool the press?
Iraqi President Ghazi al-Yawer asks for the troops to stay.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Iraq's president said Tuesday it would be "complete nonsense" to ask foreign troops to leave the country now, although some could depart by year's end.
I agree with that. We should be able to start bringing home troops by years end. The Iraqis did a good job with the election security. Now that the elections are over, I think the UN and NATO have to help out. What about France and Germany? If they don't help, what is their excuse?
From Slant Point ...this very thought provoking
- La Shawn Barber has this to say about the NAACP and other groups who have hyped the voter intimidation and disenfranchisement line for the last few years, as compared to the election in Iraq over the weekend:
While people are literally losing their heads over the cause of freedom, the NAACP's limousine liberals living high on the government hog are planning their next social event, but not before adding a little racial hysteria to the mix for good measure. With exaggerated or straight up false claims of "voter intimidation," the NAACP is a joke.
Iraqis, threatened by throat-cutting Islamofacists, still managed to vote. Yet the NAACP regards blacks as impotent children incapable of casting a simple ballot for fear of the white man at the polls. (The butterfly is so confusing!) You can't punch a simple hole on a simple ballot? Try it with no fingers or hands or arms, for crying out loud. That's disenfranchisement.
Give that some thought. I think La Shawn Barber was on point with this.
