The Surge Is Working

Let's just stop for a moment and parrot what mccain, palin and the repubs say - "the surge is working" (actually it should be called the escalation).

Now why don't the Democrats and Obama/Biden try responding with something like this...

"Ok, let's say that the surge or escalation is working.

Is the surge working because al-sadr decided he wanted to be an ayotollah, told his army to stand down and took off to Iran for training and schooling?

Is the surge working because we are paying off militant groups to stand down?

Is the surge working because some Iraqis have had enough and are standing their ground?

We know our troops are part of the reason the surge or escalation is working, but is the surge why we went into an unjust and illegal war?

Does anybody remember the reasons why we went to war in Iraq?

Was it WMD? Was it terrorism? Was it to track down the killers and planners of 9/11? Was it to fight them there so we don't have to fight them here?

Or... was it so that we can have a successful Surge?

What is the reason, this month, for over 4,000 of our brave United States soldiers being killed?

What is the reason, this month, for over 30,000 of our brave United States soldiers being wounded, maimed and disfigured?

What is the reason, this month, for the trauma and PTSD suffered by the tens of thousands of our brave United States soldiers?

What is the reason, this month, for the death of some of our brave United States soldiers that feel their only escape is suicide?

What is the reason, this month, for the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians?

What is the reason for all of this needless death, destruction and suffering....?

What is the reason for the Surge or escalation?


It does not matter if we disagree on if the surge or escalation is working or why, what matters is WHY do we need this surge in the first place.

What Is The Reason for This WAR in Iraq?!"

Well?

Re: The Surge Is Working

Hillary said it doesn't matter, she assumes our military will do whatever job their given, and by that time the ethnic cleansing had been mostly completed and millions had gotten out and were starving in some other country and we also armed the Sunni's so they weren't fighting us, for the time being. But she said we need to get out and the surge working or not isn't an issue. She said we need to cancel Bush's no bid contracts so that international investors could get in there and have a stake in Iraq's stability and she said we need to outlaw the private militias that are 'protecting' our oil interests and causing havoc for our troops.  She also said we need to bring out the Iraqi's who've helped us. She admitted that a blood bath might take place, but that as long as we're there the war  will have no end, and when we leave it will have an end.  Barack hasn't been as clear, but I've heard nothing from him that indicates he does not see it the same way. he says they agree on 99 percent of everything, and I expect that's in there.

I am sure

Obama and Biden feel the same. The problem is, if you say it in correctly, the repukes and the rightwing media will chew you up on it.

Re: The Surge Is Working
I guess the spin of the surge,
Renders the sin of original purge,
Moot and akin to those on the verge,
Willing to pin their hopes we splurge,
On fallen soldiers sad din of a dirge
