I wonder if there is any video of troop reaction to his visit and words?

They probably weren't allow to have their weapons loaded, Its like 1983 Beirut all over again, Kerry dropping bombs in front of the troops and their not allowed to shoot first and ask the Senator questions later.

Do you think we had to disband that military apparatus? I do. I can't imagine trying to move forward with a new democracy with the foundation of saddam's old Ba'athists scattered throughout. They're the ones we're still fighting. If they had remained in the military and government, they would be destroying it from within, like John Kerry is doing.

The fact that he pulled as many votes as he did this past election really makes me fear Hillary in 08. That such a percentage of the people voted for this commie only proves that the masses are asses.

I do not believe in giving credit to hindsight. We did what we could with the information and military we had.

I believe that despite the fact that the loss of a single life is tragic, the KIA numbers are VERY low so far.

I'm jumping in without having read this thread all the way through, because I've had it with this dem talking point. My fiance was on Franks' staff during the run into Bagdhad. He says this is a red herring...this "keeping the Iraqi army together" bs....the "Army" was either decimated or they all took the uniforms off and ran home. There was NO army to keep together.

Dem talking point, dem talking point, dem talking point....

Re airmen: righto, from the wife of a Force Recon Marine. (and Air Force wives kind of snivel too!)

As explanation though: for those not too familiar with service rivalries... we stick together, joint is good, but just realize there are differing perspectives. This is how we had Vietnam Vets Against the War in Vietnam/Kerry's era. If you look at the membership, you will see that very few, if any, members actually saw REAL combat. Likewise on Kerry's side for this past election. He could boast military supporters, but for the most part NONE of them were combat veterans. Most of them only served a few years. Very few on his list were career combat vets with any realistic experience (unless they were up for some cushy job in his potential administration).

What, enforce the law with Saddam's troops? That's insane. Only reason to keep the Iraqi Army together would have been to get them all concentrated so one MOAB would have done the job.

"And the job has been made enormously harder."

The job has been made enormously harder by a treacherous and treasonous press and government, thoroughly infiltrated by the enemy, and led by the diabolical and radical John F'kin Kerry. Fortunately, he's ineffectual too.

This Army guy is from Texas. Georgia can kiss my butt. What a cesspool. (Stationed in Savannah and Augusta 5 1/2 years total)

I know I'm biased - but I know many people who would agree that the best Soldiers and Marines...are from the Great State of Texas.

I've known more Sailors from Michigan than any other state.

I can believe the Air Force/California thing. I've also known many from Colorado.

I am with you! REALLY! Let's do something. He shouldn't get away with this crap. In a time of war, telling our troops how bad it is, like they don't know it's tough there, they don't need to hear his crap! They need as much positive feedback as they can get. Who the hell wanted him to go there? Was "shove it, scumbag" wife there too? That would top it off! Oh no, maybe he was there with his other lady, Jane Fonda, maybe they were talking to Zarqawi. This should be protested throughout the internet and as loud as possible!

Did he pay for his plane ticket with his own money? I hope to God he did'nt use ours. Any word on if the troops booed his pinko a$$ clear out of Iraq. Any man or woman in uniform, in Baghdad, who did not take the opportunity to go off on that subhuman and boo his traitorous a$$ out of Iraq clearly isn't thinking straight. I'ts either battle fatigue, or they're starting to believe the anti-american MSM. Is Lurch over there explaining his vote on the 87 billion, and how he thought that arming the troops could wait because the rich people weren't paying their fair share of taxes?

He probably got over there on a military aircraft, complete with personal security also provided by the gov't. After all, he didn't pay for squat in his own campaign, so why would he start paying for anything now?

What gets me is why would he say something discouraging to the brave guys who are right there? Where is his mind? He is so unworthy.

I know -- it wasn't meant literally, I think the observation (I didn't make it up) was saying that the Army all seem to be country boys, the Navy Yankees, and the Air Force party boy pukes from the land of Fruits & Nuts.

Georgia is a pretty state but I agree that Texas is head and shoulders ahead of them, even in natural resources.

For once I agree with Kerry

Me too, but this a-hole should have the decency to say something positive to our boys or else just keep his mouth shut till he's back in the Senate.

But of course that's just one part of why he's the defeated candidate.

Though I'll agree that the decision by former U.S. occupation leader Paul Bremer's to disband the Iraqi army and purge the government of former members of Hussein's Baath Party was the wrong one, considering just like in the Soviet Union 20% were party members and only 5% wanted to be, the rest had to be to get their jobs. Still he is a fool for picking Iraq and the military to be his sounding board instead of doing this within the US or Congress.

Well, the democreep party senators have really splashed diarrhea all over all that is good and great about America and her Armed Forces this week.

I'm sure they are happily reading on their crappers the NYT's, LAT's, and WASH POST just how wonderful the editors think they are for bashing Bush, demonizing Gonzales, demoralizing our brave troops and hoping for people running amuck in the streets demanding a re-election, just like the good old days of Nazi Germany. It's sad though, that while these senators void away, their political party is just a flush away from the deep slimey nether regions of the sewer.

TheDemonRATS think they can stop that train to Democracy. They think they can lay down on the tracks and stop this victory of freedom for the Iraqi people. In earlier times the train mowed them down.

A page is about to be written about the story of freedom for humankind. The DemonRATs have confused socialism with justice. With socialism there is no justice and freedom without justice is no freedom.

Maybe politicians need to take an oath like physicians take in regard to doing no harm.

I think they actually do take an oath along those lines, to protect and defend the Constitution. We need to prosecute.

I'm afraid that I won't be able to assist with your request for at least a couple of reasons:

1. I don't make a habit of associating with treasonous,traitorous,anti-American,serial-lying,cowardly gigolos like John Kerry

2. I don't have his email address

3. I would be concerned that even if I did have his email address, if I were to forward somthing like this article to him that he would have the Secret Service as well as a few choice Democrat Union thugs come to give me a 'visit'.

4. He would have the IRS audit me

So, even though I will generally bend over backwards in order to accommodate any lady's request, in this case I regret that I will need to decline :-)

1) Disbanding the Iraqi Army. We should have made them responsible for security. They had 3 corps of soldiers available.

While you may know what you are talking about, I choose to believe that those in the Pentagon knew a little more than we did about what was the right thing to do over there. Hopefully they have intelligence that we don't.

I don't like it when Kerry speaks against our government to the troops while we are at war, and I won't do it myself (without absolute proof they are willfully wrong). Do they get everything right? Of course not, how could they know everything that may and may not happen?
