Time to Get Out of Iraq

God I hope this means we can leave give the Iraqis their country back:

A timetable for withdrawal of occupation troops from Iraq. Amnesty for all insurgents who attacked U.S. and Iraqi military targets. Release of all security detainees from U.S. and Iraqi prisons. Compensation for victims of coalition military operations.

Those sound like the demands of some of the insurgents themselves, and in fact they are. But they’re also key clauses of a national reconciliation plan drafted by new Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who will unveil it Sunday. The provisions will spark sharp debate in Iraq—but the fiercest opposition is likely to come from Washington, which has opposed any talk of timetables, or of amnesty for insurgents who have attacked American soldiers.

But in Iraq, even a senior military official in the U.S.-led coalition said Friday that the coalition might consider a timetable under certain circumstances. And the official was careful to point out that a distinction needs to be made between terrorists and the resistance.

This is our best chance to get out of Iraq. It’s time to declare victory and come home.

The Bushies’ line has always been, “we’ll stand down when they stand up.” Well, they’re standing up … to us.

Of course, I hate America and am on Kos’ payroll so what the fuck do I know?


Kos just sent fifty cents to my PayPal account and asked me to say “you’re right.”

So you’re right.


I just received $5 from Kos to vote for Ned Lamont … too bad I don’t live in Connecticut.


Kos is stupid with his money. He just PayPal’d me $40 to post a picture of Gavin’s crotch again… I woulda done that for free! Bwah-ha-ha!


even a senior military official in the U.S.-led coalition said Friday that the coalition might consider a timetable under certain circumstances.

Well, that’s nice. After all, it’s not their fucking country. There will, I think, come a point where the Iraqis explicitly tell the Americans to pack up and leave, and they won’t. There are permanent bases to build, after all.

And Kos owes me a check. Bastard.


No matter how many trillions it costs, Bush ain’t leaving till he gets his schweets and rose petals. The sad thing isn’t that he still thinks he’ll get some of that if he stays long enough, but that Cheney actually bought him a pumpkin-shaped plastic bucket for collecting them.


War taking its toll on British forces:

British army demotes goat for disrupting parade

Demoted…right into the stew pot!….Ah ahahahahahah*hack*

*sniff*….That’s on the house, Kos.


The fact is, the Iraqi asking the U.S. to leave Iraq will only reflect badly on Mark Warner and Jerome Armstrong, and there’s not a thing in the world Kos can do to stop it.


Ha! I bet Jerome didn’t see THAT coming in the solstice of Neptune and Orion’s Crotch!


Sorry to keep harping on this, but you mean “get out” of Iraq. Besides the many other permanent bases, check out this latest article about the Baghdad embassy we’re building* from The Nation (I take my orders the old-fashioned way, from the official Party organ, not from Kos!) (heh heh, you said “organ”): http://www.thenation.com/doc/20060703/howl

Or check out this USA Today story if you don’t have a Nation subscription. http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/iraq/2006-04-19-us-embassy_x.htm

Some highlights: estimated cost = $592 million (as if)
estimated number of employees = 8,000 (the current embassy has only 1,000)
size = 104 acres

*”we” meaing the First Kuwait General Trading and Contracting Co., which has some very interesting labor practices regarding its 900 imported Asian workers. First Kuwait is not at all “quaint,” as Abu Gonzales would say, if you know what I mean, and I think you do.


Hmmm. Kos said he wouldn’t give me any money. Could be my dearth of minions. But he did say I could fall by the new house, have a hit of teh pot and engage in teh gay sex with some of his mexicans. I’m considering the offer…
