Skip to comments.Where I stand on Iraq ::Hillary Clinton to NY Daily News Editorial Board
Posted on 10/12/2006 4:45:18 PM PDT by Cincinna
Sen. Clinton says how Bush went wrong and offers her prescription for the war.
Clinton met with the Daily News Editorial Board yesterday. These comments are excerpted from her remarks.
"We have to deal with the Iraq we have, not the Iraq we wish we had. And the Iraq we have is a deteriorating, violent conflict that, if not technically a civil war, is about as close as you can get.
Having been now on the Armed Services Committee for more than 3½ years, the uniformed military has tried to be respectful of the chain of command. They've been unwilling to contradict the secretary of defense when he said, "Well, nobody's asked me for more troops." I mean, it's just flat-out untrue. It's been untrue for years.
There are three big things that need to happen..."

Stand for nothing , believe in nothing ,try to appeal to all. Is this any way to run for the presidency?
Read this and be frightened.
Hildebeast speaks for the military now? Better yet, the Military even speeaks to her?
The thought that the American voters might make this old Commie Commander-in-Chief makes me want to weep for the military.
What kind of logic is she employing? First she argues there aren't enough troops in Iraq, then she says we need to move our troops to Kuwait or up north by the Kurds (at least she didn't suggest Guam). Maybe I just don't understand such complicated, nuanced reasoning?
Hey, Hildabeast, check with your pal John al-Murtha, I hear he has brilliant plan to redeploy to Okinawa..... this keeps all our forces a mere 5,000 miles from Iraq in case of emergency while guaranteeing that our relations with Okinawans and the Japanese gov't will melt down. That's what I call a Demagogue two-fer!!!
Makes me want to thank our forefathers for the second ammendment.
That is the exact same link posted with the article.
What in hell does this woman know about respect? She has no respect for the military from the top on down and she deserves none for herself.
Hillary's contempt and treatment of the military brings up an important issue. If, God forbid, she were elected, would the military follow her? Her popularity among the active military, veterans, and military families is rock-bottom low.
This is a perfect example of Democrats attempting to combine a complaint about the status quo with wishful thinking about better results and pass it off as policy. It isn't.
If Hitlery becomes president she will try to make our military be her own personal force. Their first and foremost charge will be to protect her. That's all she cares about.
draw a line on the ground...she will put a stumpy cankle on each side of it....if she had more stumps she would try to be on 4 sides of the issue....with the piaps just like her husband (in name only ) bj....it depends on what poll has been taken and who her audience is...of course..she is a lib/dem socialist and again like bj...always on the wrong side of every issue!!!!
What vision! What substance! What clear thinking!
This PIAPS is an empty suit. Her debate against GOP candidate John Spencer on October 29 will further flush her out as a weak speaker and debater.
Infortunately, it will only be broadcast on Time Warner NY1, a local cable channel.
Their website http://www.NY1.com/ has live stream audio so you can all follow along.
Anyone have the latest poll numbers on this race>
Schumer won his race with 73% and Spitzer is polling at 63%. To be nominee for POTUS she must equal or surpass that.
All about demanding Rumsfeld resign.
Very frightened. Never, never, never, will she even be nominated.
If she had as many positions on Iraq as she has in bed maybe her and Bill would see each other more often.
Now let me get this straight. The Hildebeast says she's met with Iraqi leaders and they aren't putting together a program for oil revenues to go to their people, fast enough to suit her. It is THEIR country and THEIR right to make internal decisions. Is the Hildebeast saying she is going to THREATEN them? Just how, Ms. Know-nothing are you going to dictate to the Iraqi leaders how to run their country? What a moron.
Isn't it odd that Iraq has been deteriorating for 3 1/2 years? At what point has it deteriorated to the point of not existing any more? 10 years? 15? 20?
Tubba should tend to her own backyard before telling anyone what to do. She can't even control her own husband who is straying from the fold so to speak. IMO, they deserve each other.
Notice how the editorial board had no questions. The Queen is not be questioned.
Yeah, like if the Sunnis get some oil money, they will play nice with everyone.
Cankles forgets that the Sunnis ran the show for thirty years under Saddam and tortured and killed the Shiites and Kurds. The Sunnis are lucky we are there--that ensures they won't be ethnically cleansed by the other to groups, who definitely have an axe to grind with them.
Yep, the oil deal proposed by Her Heinous will solve everything. Why, oh why, could we not see the genius of this single issue solution? Oh, how could we be so blind?
If Hillary! becomes President on 1/20/09, Civil War II will break out by 2012.She's that dangerous.
We have to deal with the Iraq we have, not the Iraq we wish we had.
She plagiarized Rumsfeld's comments too.
The original link points to the editorial page, which -- tomorrow -- will have different content on it than today and may not include the Hillary article. I thought it would be useful to link directly to the (hopefully) permanent location of the article.
Thanks. I didn't note the difference.
Thanks, I missed that stolen thought. She has none of her own so I ought not be surprised.
