Where is Baghdad Bob when Commander Obama needs him?
I stand by my words. He’s a Marxist idiot.
Wonder if they could have fought back against the current crop of invaders if we had not taken their guns?

Iraqi citizens will be required to turn over automatic weapons and heavy weapons under a proclamation that allied authorities plan to issue this week, allied officials said today.
The aim of the proclamation is to help stabilize Iraq by confiscating the huge supply of AK-47’s, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons that are used by criminal gangs, paramilitary groups and remnants of the Saddam Hussein government.
Iraqis who refuse to comply with the edict will be subject to arrest. Only Iraqis authorized to use military-type weapons because of their police or military duties will be exempt.
‘’We are in the final stages of formulating a weapons policy to put rules on who can and cannot possess a weapon,’’ Lt. Gen. David D. McKiernan, the chief allied land commander said in an interview. ‘’We want to get explosives and AK’s out of the wrong hands.’’
Saudi Arabia has plenty of Apaches. I’m sure they are in the air heading towards Baghdad as I keyboard this.
The A-10 has been on the chopping AF block for years but a few intelligent politicians won’t let them retire the A-10. The Air Force wants only sexy, $200 million airplanes, not ugly $10 million airplanes.
I don’t know.
No fear. These are the jayvee terrorists. Says Obungo.
In the US they won’t even let us have Toyota Hilux’s.
I would love a Hilux Diesel.
I was being sarcastic. I doubt that the Saudis have left the traffic pattern without their US contract IPs yet.
And blame Bush.
I grieve for one of my wife’s closest friends who lost her son in Iraq. For what? It was a noble cause at the time, but the usurper has thrown it all away. I am sick at what this bastard has done to the parents and loved ones of all the men and women who gave their lives for Iraqi freedom.
The war presently is not the same. Saddam is gone. That was what the war was about.
The current war is been building since 1918 or so when the artificial nation of Iraq was established by the British. There re lots of very old scores to be settled. That effort is now underway and visible.
It is not true your son died in vain. Saddam is gone and not a threat

You’re one of few who realizes it was two wars: one to depose Saddam, another to fill the power vacuum. Mission accomplished on the first; Obama handed the second to his allies.
Cookie Cutter Toyota Tundras in White as far as the eye can see.
Whose port were these Tundras brought through?
Who bought them for ISIS?
Whose army is this?
I’ll bet: SAUDI!
Those Tundra’s are carrying Saudi’s army to Baghdad.
But just like Benghazi, there will be no Command Authority decision to drop a twinkie.
Clarification — it was the son of a close friend of my wife.
I have not seen or heard from Biden in months.
The only war that had a chance of success was a war of conquest to place American governors in Riyadh and Islamabad.
The Iraq war, based on false premises, was built on sand - and the architect needs to take some of the blame.
It was idiotic from its moment of conception.
The enemy is in Riyadh and Islamabad.
