In a statement, Kerry and Feingold said a deadline "gives Iraqis the best chance for stability and self-government" and "allows us to begin refocusing on the true threats that face our country."

I am stupid I guess but can someone please explain to me how removing US forces "gives Iraqis the best chance for stability and self-government."

If we let them rule now we could be speaking French!

Or German. The French speak very good German to this day.

Holy smoke, I'm not even German! Geez, that's what I picked up in FRG in 1982! Even a little joke about German linguistical superiority is verboten, auch untersagt?

Und bitte hoeren Sie mich, ich bin kein `nitwit', aber ein komischer Nudel! Amerikaner, bestimmt. Nicht schlect, aber schlimmst!

Tschuess! Wiederhoeren!

Hey, it is not all that. When someone comes in on a paving, speaking a foreign language, stuff happens. You understand. Meine Großmutter wies mich in der deutschen Sprache an. Tscheuss.

...they are trying to jump on the train before it leaves the station, so they can claim some of the credit.

You are so right. The Democrats have no way to salvage any credibility on Iraq except to keep saying over and over "bring the troops home"

They know that eventually troops WILL start coming home. (So sure are they of Bush's success in Iraq).

And when the troops do come home they will be all over the news claiming it is they who have pushed Bush into bringing home the troops earlier than he wanted to.

The DEMS make me want to puke they are so predictable

Es tut mir furchtbar Leid! Can't anyone take a joke anymore? And my German really isn't that good. Can you converse on the telephone in German? I can't!

I'm still amazed that my post-it German sounded like a fascist invasion. Wanna hear my Russian (deployed to Uzbekistan 2003-04)?

Kak dyela idut u vas? Pryekasna? Spokoinoi nochi!

All in good fun. I find humor in some issues that others find dark. And so it is.

I recommend that we replace each soldier in Iraq with a Liberal from the US. That way, we can bring the troops home and still maintain the same number of Americans there to protect the Iraqis. What better way for Liberals to demonstrate their "true" support for the military by serving in there place. I recommend that the first volunteer group to go be Murtha, Kerry, McCain, Kennedy, Pelosi, Boxer, Durbin, Feingold,...

Senate Democrats presented two plans for winding down U.S. involvement in Iraq on Monday, one to pull out U.S. combat forces by July 2007 and another to begin withdrawing this year without a deadline for completion.

Which plan does the insurgents endorse?
