Two Interesting Notes From An Iraqi Leaders Meeting

It appears that Dick and George have not been sending the right memo's to the new leaders of Iraq, they also want a timetable for a pullout.

Reaching out to the Sunni Arab community, Iraqi leaders called for a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces


But what should be very frightening to the Bush administration is the second part of the statement.

Iraq's opposition had a "legitimate right" of resistance.


This is a defacto approval of continued attacks against American forces.

Lovely.

Even our pet politicians in Iraq want to kill our troops

my opinion in contrast to the VP's is:
Overthrowing the brutal dictator of Iraq without an executable and good plan – using torture and killing innocent civilians at a high percentage and by questionable (chemical weapons) means "would be a victory for the terrorists."

Not being able to provide clean water and electricity to the citizens "would be a victory for the terrorists."

In a fight for the hearts and minds of the citizens: Overcharging for services and otherwise profiteering off the resources of the citizens of the (United States and or Iraq) "would be a victory for the terrorists."

In a fight for the hearts and minds of the citizens: squandering the support of the citizens of the (United States and or Iraq) "would be a victory for the terrorists."

In a fight for the hearts and minds of the citizens: not having and never gaining the support of the majority of citizens of the world or of the free world or of Iraq "would be a victory for the terrorists."

Continuing to misrepresent insurgent forces that are in vast majority Iraqis as “terrorists” "would be a victory for the terrorists." – making the “terrorists” appear larger and stronger than they really are while disparaging the Iraqis people making up the insurgency.

In a fight for the hearts and minds of the citizens: a Policy of imposing a burden of proof that requires the government of any citizens to ‘prove that something does not exist’ or be at war with the United States: especially in the context of that government’s declaration that the ‘thing’ doesn’t exist and the United Nation’s inspection not finding the existence of such a ‘thing’ "would be a victory for the terrorists." – inasmuch as such a policy undermines reasonable international standards of diplomacy and law and could be used against the United States – for any and or all countries that may want to see harm come to the US. ("I repeat that we never had the burden of proof; Saddam Hussein did." Vice President of the United States)
