You know, Barock Osama is like money in the bank for conservative bloggers. Stuck on what to post? Don't worry, Barack "The Rock", will show his stupidity again.
Like clockwork and true to his John Kerry like tendencies, speaking at the VFW convention in Kansas City, Barack AGAIN dismisses the hard work & progress of our soldiers in Iraq.
Obama said in a telephone briefing, "If we put 30,000 additional troops into Baghdad, it will quell some of the violence short term. I don't think there is any doubt about that."Also speaking at the event and offering a more realistic view on the War in Iraq, undeclared Republican primary hopeful, Fred Thompson stated....
But that won't solve Iraq's critical political problems, he said in the call and again later in a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
"All of our top military commanders recognize that there is no military solution in Iraq," Obama said.... "No military surge can succeed without political reconciliation and a surge of diplomacy in Iraq and the region. Iraq's leaders are not reconciling. They are not achieving political benchmarks. The only thing they seem to have agreed on is to take a vacation." More...
"the U.S. must rebuild its military to fight global terrorism because leaders "took a holiday" in the 1990s after the end of the Cold War."
"Some people in this country think if we can pull out of Iraq, our problems will be over," Thompson said. "You and I know better than that."
