Well, Well, Well…

…what have we here:

The top U.S. commander in Iraq has submitted a plan to the Pentagon for withdrawing troops in Iraq, according to a senior defense official.

Gen. George Casey submitted the plan to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. It includes numerous options and recommends that brigades — usually made up of about 2,000 soldiers each — begin pulling out of Iraq early next year.

But I thought John Murtha was the coward who wanted to cut and run. What gives?

They’ll write it off as “oh, they make contingencies all the time. It’s not relevant.”

Meanwhile, you’re deeper down the rabbit hole, while Murtha’s original intent (“begin withdrawals immediately,” not “withdraw immediately” — the distinction is there) gets ever more lost in the hubbub…


But they didn’t actually use the word “imminent,” so it’s Kings-X, do over, doesn’t count.

Besides, Michael Moore is teh fat.


In the next few news cycles–“Look! Over there! We’ve caught the #2 guy in Al Qaeda! No, really, this time!”


They’re seeing the possibility of that sweet GOP majority slipping from their grasp. And given their atrocious behavior since gaining power, they’re justifiably concerned about the prospect of payback. I’d be worried, too, if I were in their shoes.


Why does Gen. Casey hate America?


Damn that general for undermining the troops in Iraq, under his command!


Not only do they propose an a bill that simply states “immediate withdrawl”, as if that was what Murtha proposed, and then they call a vote on it knowing that the dems would never vote yes on something so oversimplified. Then they and the media treat it as a defeat for the dems.
They’re getting scared though. The only reason they wouldn’t put Murtha’s real proposal on the table, is that the’re afraid that it would pass. And the GOP wouldn’t be able to claim victory and pull out in their own good time.


Time to Swift-Boat Casey, my wingnut allies! Uh…he was never in Iraq!


the emperor has no clothes


Let’s not forget, it’s only when Democrats call for fast troop withdrawal that it’s helping the enemies.

Back in July, it was the decisive thing for Rumsfeld to call for.

At that point, timetables were still bad, though, just to be clear.


Doh! I just went back and re-read the original msnbc article referenced above, and they later issued a correction. It was apparently al-Jaafari who was calling for the fast pullout, not Rumsfeld as was originally claimed.


Ja, Rumsfeld’s the one who likes pulling out slowly…Sick wrestling freaks.



That’s it for your hopes in either journalism. or Republican politics.

It’s not a problem that you made a mistake; it’s that you admitted it.

For the rest of you,

Casey was right to put forth a plan. Murtha was wrong to put forth a plan. Just accept it like good little Republicans or you’ll be doomed to follow Democrats and their obeisance to logic and truth for the rest of your lives!


What gives?

Figure it out for yourself.

Unless, that is, you’re a lazy cunt.


Yeah, that looks interesting..
Whatś more interesting is that you can find anything you want for Christmas here:



Oh look, the Spambots are here!


… and I’m sure it’s JUST a coinkidink that they’re talking about a pullout before the mid-term elections …


Andy, we’re all Christmas-hatin’ librul atheists here. Now we must mock your faith and your intellect. *points* tee hee hee!


Anyone see MTP today? Timmy kept saying “immediate withdrawl”,”immediate withdrawl”,”immediate withdrawl” and Murtha let him get away with it! Why doesn’t he correct the journalists who keep saying that?


I figured the presidents men would be unanimously in favor of the withdrawl method.


Technically speaking, it’s the withdrawal method that is the Sin of Onan, not masturbation. Just read Genesis 38 in context.

Just thought I’d point that out.


I love the backpedaling, now that it’s clear that attacking Murtha is backfiring. Now, even Cheney is saying nice stuff about him! Huh. Gee, Dick, when was it… oh, I don’t know… TWO days ago that you were essentially saying Murtha is traitorous scum? Is it any wonder your poll numbers are in the crapper with your flippity-floppity mixed-messages? Oleaginous slab.
