Iraqi PM al-Maliki:Troop withdrawal timetable
My oh my... whatever will the Neo-Con War Fans say about this turn of events? (via MSNBC): "A timetable for withdrawal of occupation troops from Iraq. Amnesty for all insurgents who attacked US and Iraqi military targets. Release of all security detainees from US 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 natl reconciliation plan drafted by new Iraqi Prime Minister al-Maliki"... ya know, yet another male world leader whose eyes Bush deeply looked into and assessed his soul... and then wrongly predicted what that man's political policy would be. Wow. How many Repukes are gonna rally behind this plan? Will they now start smearing and accusing al-Maliki of wanting to "cut & run"? Hmm, I also wonder if Coulter will hope that al-Maliki is fragged for "daring" to demand these things for his OWN country? If al-Maliki were to become unexpectedly dead, I guess the War Fans would just nonchalantly tally it to the Iraqi Death Toll which tops over 50,000 (and I seriously wonder if that number is anywhere near high enough). We lost 3K on 9/11. 50K divided by 3K = 16. How would we feel if we had over sixteen 9/11's happen to us? Only that number of 50K dead is much worse in Iraq b/c they are a nation of 26 million. America is a nation of 298 million. Big difference, no?
