VP Biden arrives in Iraq amid political impasse
New York Post ^ | July 3, 2010 | LARA JAKES

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden landed Saturday on what appeared to be a dual mission in Baghdad: to visit U.S. troops during the July Fourth weekend and coax Iraqi leaders into ending their government impasse.

Top Obama administration officials have been reluctant to visit Iraq since its deadlocked March election failed to produce a clear winner. Biden's trip may signal the U.S. is stepping up its efforts to hammer out an agreement among Iraqi political rivals and get a new government in place as soon as possible.

That's hysterical. They must have no hope at all if they're sending Dopey Joe. It's just so they can say they tried.

“.....hammer out an agreement.....”

Will it be like the agreement Nixon and Kissinger hammered out with South Vietnam?

al baby,

Terrific wisecrack.

Iraq would advise us to elect an Islamic president, but we already did that.

This tribal thing has always been a worldwide problem. It evolves into the old "survival of the strongest", i.e., "conquering" but the rivalry will be forever.

Regardless, the world is a much safer place without Saddam.

Now to get rid of that Iranian piece of cr** and that freak in North Korea.

Yes, we figure by the end of the weekend, Iraq's going to declare war on us or something.

I thought the March election results had been determined and accepted. Is the Kenyan trying to mess with the will of the Iraqi people?

Watch out for Biden, I here he has a sock fetish and ManBearSexPoodle might have given him some unsavory ideas.

I thought the March election results had been determined and accepted.

Iyad Allawi's party won the most seats with Nouri al Maliki's party coming in at a close second. The two actually did agree to work together to seat the new government back in May. At this tender stage, I really think people like Biden could do more harm than good.

Iraq is handling it in their own way. I wish people like Biden would just stay out of it.

Watch out for Biden, I here he has a sock fetish and ManBearSexPoodle might have given him some unsavory ideas.

I have no intention of assisting in the release of any Vice Presidential chakra. :)

They will pull his plugs! The old schmooze factor of Joe Biddy Biden goes no where in Iraq. This is a warrior culture, and withing 10 minutes they ALL would know that Joe Biddy Biden is lower than a worm, with the integrity of a gnat. So how does he expect to get any results showing them governance?

This is a huge laugh to see this Biddy Biden idiot strutting around Iraq,a country that he said a short 3 years ago, was irretrievably lost and had to be balkanized for the sake of peace. I hope the Iraqis give him an enema send him home in a match box.
