  1. GENERAL PETRAEUS OR GENERAL BETRAY US?

    Cooking the Books for the White House

    General Petraeus is a military man constantly at war with the facts. In 2004, just before the election, he said there
    was “tangible progress” in Iraq and that “Iraqi leaders are stepping forward.” And last week Petraeus, the architect
    of the escalation of troops in Iraq, said, “We say we have achieved progress, and we are obviously going to do
    everything we can to build on that progress.”

    Every independent report on the ground situation in Iraq shows that the surge strategy has failed. Yet the General
    claims a reduction in violence. That’s because, according to the New York Times, the Pentagon has adopted a bizarre
    formula for keeping tabs on violence. For example, deaths by car bombs don’t count. The Washington Post reported
    that assassinations only count if you’re shot in the back of the head — not the front. According to the Associated
    Press, there have been more civilian deaths and more American soldier deaths in the past three months than in any
    other summer we’ve been there. We’ll hear of neighborhoods where violence has decreased. But we won’t hear that
    those neighborhoods have been ethnically cleansed.

    Most importantly, General Petraeus will not admit what everyone knows: Iraq is mired in an unwinnable religious
    civil war. We may hear of a plan to withdraw a few thousand American troops. But we won’t hear what Americans are
    desperate to hear: a timetable for withdrawing all our troops. General Petraeus has actually said American troops
    will need to stay in Iraq for as long as ten years.

    Today, before Congress and before the American people, General Petraeus is likely to become General Betray Us.

  2. Where's the slander?:confused:
     
  3. To neocons, telling the truth=slander.
     
  4. Exactly, don't see any. Show us Hapa.

    Ursa..
     
  5. I think Petraeus is basically stuck, having to go along with the party line, but I do think it was irresponsible for the Left to place a full page ad about betrayal. Again, both sides have legitimate complaints that they could be doing something about rather than politics as usual, IMO.

  6. No surprise here, below is an example of the typical behavior of a move on dot org member


    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A U.S. citizen has confessed to using an axe to kill a Dutch student after failing to find a soldier to attack, his lawyer said Tuesday.

    The suspect, Carlos Hartmann, 41, of Tecumseh, Mich., has confessed to the Sept. 8 killing on a train platform in the southern city of Roosendaal, defence lawyer Peter Gremmen said.

    Gremmen said Hartmann wanted to punish the Netherlands for its support of the war in Iraq.
     
  7. That's how they protest against violence...
     
  8. Liberals invariably respond to any criticism of them on national security grounds by claiming that their "patriotism" is being called into question. This is a variation of their technique to avoid arguments on the merits of various issues by screaming racist, homophobe, corporate tool, hatemonger, etc at anyone who challenges them.

    With this background, it is ironic to say the least that the premier moonbat organization, moveon.org, challenges a highly decorated and admired general by...what else, calling his patriotism into question. I don't know how else you could interpret their play on his name. I haven't heard one of the leading democrats take them to task for accusing a four star general of "betraying" the country, a crime punishable under the UCMJ by death. Perhaps we should give Mrs. Clinton a pass, since she has been preoccupied by yet another of the Clintons' seemingly unending Chinese campaign finance scandals.
     
  9. Not to mention that those same silent Dem Senators voted unanimously to confirm him and charged him with making this very report.

    But of course when their base moonbats accuse him of betraying the country, you can hear the crickets chirping.
     
  10. Hmm. Well, i thought it was a rhetorical argument, the lead says "or", an assertion, rather than a definitive.

    Hey, good luck to him, he'd have to have one of the worst jobs going at the moment.
