Combat Mission Over

I am so happy that President Obama has declared that the combat mission of our troops is now officially over, in Iraq.

In fact, I am tickled to no end.



Is it just me? Or are we seeing an escalation in violence towards the remaining U.S. military presence?

The bottom line here is that we may be seeing what can happen when you announce something is over, long before it really is. Remember President Bush on that aircraft carrier?

Note how in the clip that I posted from CNN, Rick Sanchez seems utterly amazed that something like this could happen. He cannot seem to fathom how an Iraqi soldier, one whom we worked so hard to train, could just up and start killing Americans after Obama said it was over.

Sanchez is usually clueless, we all know that. But he really doesn't get this one. He is in a state of bewilderment, he is confusion personified.

Oh well. No matter.

Obama says the war in Iraq is over. That means it's over, so what are we worried about? Probably just another fluke.

Sanchez is the type who honestly thought our BEING THERE so ticked off these people that our leaving would make them so happy they'd celebrate us.
This is, sadly, the same idiot mentality that says it's working to keep us safe on our homeland..yikes.

Yeah Z, Sanchez is a true idiot that happened to be in the right place and the right time to get his job. He has no talent, no critical thinking skills, and no ability to attract viewers (which is one reason why CNN is the bottom feeding news network after pioneering the medium).

Of course, you can correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Mr. Bush told the American people that our war on terror will last for many years into the future. This is interesting because the Islamacists themselves have been at war with non-Moslems for the past 1,500 years. Notice, they haven’t stopped fighting. Now the question is, has anyone with an ounce of brains in the government considered that drawing down the number of troops in Iraq only increases the danger to those who remain behind? Given what we know about Islamacists, they are likely to continue their ‘holy war’ against the infidel. Personally, I wish we’d concede the point to these people and announce we are engaged in a holy war, and damn it, we’re going to win it for Jesus. No one in this country has balls that large, however. So, we will remain content to act surprised when Moslems attack our troops —particularly when we are a brainless Hispanic racist who works for CNN.

I know it's a rhetorical question. But I think they are too busy trying to cover their tracks and misdeeds to think about important stuff like this.

I rarely do. it just so happens Drudge linked to this and I was bored enough to click into it and watch it.

In other words, I found it by accident.

As for the French striking, I was wondering when their next one would be. It's been way too long.
