On Thursday, President Bush claimed that “nearly 100,000 fully trained and equipped Iraqi soldiers, police officers, and other security personnel are working today.” But last Monday, the Pentagon said that “only about 53,000 of the 100,000 Iraqis on duty have now undergone training.” According to Pentagon documents obtained by Reuters, of the 90,000 in the police force “only 8,169 have received full training.” The White House, inexplicably, stands by its 100,000 figure.

 

President Bush has long insisted that Iraq is now the central battle in the global war on terrorism. But, according to the U.S. military’s own assessment, “the Iraqi insurgency remains primarily a home-grown problem.” (Even as scores of foreign terrorists pour across the border.) According to top military officials, “loyalists of Saddam Hussein’s regime ? who have swelled their ranks in recent months as ordinary Iraqis bristle at the U.S. military presence in Iraq ? represent the far greater threat to the country’s fragile 3-month-old government” than foreign fighters. According to the U.S. military, “Iraqi officials tended to exaggerate the number of foreign fighters in Iraq to obscure the fact that large numbers of their countrymen have taken up arms against U.S. troops and the American-backed interim Iraqi government.”

In an interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro, Jordan’s King Abdullah ? one of the Bush administration’s closest allies ? said, “it appears to me impossible to organize indisputable elections in the chaos currently reigning in Iraq.” Abdullah stressed that “partial elections which excluded cities such as Falluja could isolate Sunni Muslims, saying that could create even deeper divisions in the country.” Last week, “Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld raised the possibility that elections could be excluded from dangerous parts of the country.”

And even Defense Secretary Rumsfeld says they may have to have the election only some percentage of the country, but that would be okay. I guess its not unlike Florida, here in the US of A.

  One Response to “Iraq According To Bush”

  1. GUESS WHO’S ENDORSING JOHN KERRY????

    The Communist Party of The United States of America, CPUSA, is publicly supporting the election of John Kerry.

    No, this is not a typo…you read it correctly. The CPUSA has made available on its Web site, http://www.cpusa.org/, an advertisement entitled Top Ten Reasons To Defeat Bush. This advertisement can be downloaded. The communist party urges readers to place this ad in local newspapers throughout the country to defeat President Bush.

    Remarkably, the “Top Ten Reasons” of the Communist party are identical to those of the Democratic party; out-sourcing, homosexual rights, abortion and the like.

    At first, it was thought that “this was only a coincidence.” The Democratic party of the United States couldn’t be in lock step with the Marxists! So, the originator of this email wrote to a spokesman of the CPUSA in Georgia and here is part of the spokesman’s letter: “The CPUSA supports the John Kerry campaign with donations and volunteer effort. We believe that defeating George Bush is the single most important issue this November”

    **Next, it was discovered that one of Kerry’s campaign themes is “Let America be America Again.” This slogan was borrowed from a Communist poet, Langston Hughes. This is not common knowledge to the average American. “Let America be America Again” sounds good but is a rambling, gloomy poem.

    Interestingly, another poem by Langston goes as follows; “Goodbye, Christ Jesus, Lord, God, Jehovah, Beat it on away from here now. Make way for a new guy with no religion at all — A real guy named Marx, communist, Lenin, Peasant, Stalin, Worker, ME — I said, ME!”

    Then, if this was not convincing enough that the Democratic party has lost it, a third discovery!

    **A Vietnam vet group took a trip to Communist Hanoi to investigate a report that John Kerry was in the “Hanoi Hall of Fame.” Yes, there is a museum in Hanoi with a section dedicated to foreign activists who help defeat the United States Military in Vietnam. Of course, you would expect Jane Fonda’s picture to be there. But, alas, there is John Kerry’s picture shaking the hand of a communist official.

    Never has there been such a tragedy! Never has there been such a threat to America! Has the Democratic party has been taken over by the far, far left?

    It’s not only the communists but the homosexual activists who are appalled that George Bush is married to a woman! They are enraged that the President wants a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage between a man and woman.

    Then we have the ACLU running to a federal activist judge with every piece of legislation that doesn’t fit into their leftist agenda. They support every Democratic socialist whim. The removal of the Ten Commandments is their top priority!

    Don’t trust this message for the truth — visit the CPUSA website at http://www.cpusa.org/ — read the articles, and then decide for yourself.

    So..who will you vote for during the next Presidential Election?
