You can read, I can read and I am pretty sure Obama can read. We can read all about the Iraq war, we can see it in video form.

McCain keeps pushing the meme that the surge worked. What he doesn't tell you about is the cease fire that the Sunnis and Shias put together last year. And he really doesn't want to tell you the Bush Administration or the US Government didn't have a thing to do with it. The clerics called a cease fire amongst themselves.

Just think of that for a minute. Here we have heaped tens of thousands of dead bodies onto the streets of Iraq, dumped trillions of dollars there and Bush could not control the city of Baghdad. But, ironically the Sunnis and Shias came together and stopped the shooting on their own with no help from us.

So what exactly is Obama going to learn? That is is damn hot? You can't walk down the street without an armed escort of about 100 Marines, snipers and hovering gunships?

Maybe McCain knows something we don't know? Maybe there is a very large secret that has been kept? Maybe Baghdad is full of purple unicorns and prancing forest creatures? If that is the case, how does that account for all the body bags coming back? You know, the ones that we cannot see.

So Obama is going to go to Baghdad and what do you think he will say? What will be the next slew of horseshit McCain will be shoveling when Obama comes back?

Remember, you don't need to go to the sewage treatment plant to know it stinks.

Have conditions during any war not sucked? I think the solders storming the beaches of Normandy could tell a tale or two about how awful conditions during war are.

as doubtful as the appeal of your work, but now's your chance to show proof. just post your pics and get your street creds right along with Obama.
gtg, time to make the donuts.

In the words of Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg:

Kill, kill, kill for peace,

Near or middle or very far east,
Far or near or very middle east,

Kill, kill, kill for peace,
It will give you a big release,
Kill, kill, kill for peace.

If Flight Suit Plastic Turkey Boy can turn war into media, let's play that media and tell our story.

And maybe bring our men and women home.

Hahahahaha - the blowjobs. :)

Maybe we should make that an official part of the criteria...

And "so off base, off target, and off the wall, that it's frightening"? Which part? That "the surge" had nothing to do with Bush's war strategy? That the Sunnis and Shias had more to do with it than anything BushCo has done? Or that McCain was completely condescending by saying Obama could learn something by going there?

After all, what did McCain learn? Other than taking credit for good things you have nothing to do with and placing blame everywhere but yourself?
