BAGHDAD - The U.S. military says five American soldiers were among seven people killed in a suicide truck bombing in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

A military statement says two Iraqi policemen were also killed. A sixth U.S. soldier was wounded in the blast along with 17 Iraqi policemen.

The explosion took place when the bomber rammed into a barrier outside the Iraqi police headquarters in southwestern Mosul on Friday morning.



I thought Iraq was a huge success?
Why are we still dying over there?
Why are we still pouring money into that mistake?
Anyone have any illusions about what's going to happen over there the second we leave?



Opinion:

President Obama had to sign a pact with ME (the Devil) to get elected. That pact said he would go against his better judgment & SLOWLY withdraw our troops from Iraq. I say it's time to renege on his deal with me & pull all our troops out IMMEDIATELY! (Good men & women are dying to save face & try to mollify a small minority of right wingers in this country!)
Enough!!...Get our people (& money) out of Iraq by the end of next week!!

What will be your excuse, Devil, for Obama staying in Afghanistan?

That somehow the Afghan war is just and the Iraq war is unjust is the delusion of the left. If it's time to get out of Iraq then it's time to get out of Afghanistan and never should we bother Iran.

Tyrants and terrorists who attack the US, its allies and its interests are enemies of the state. Your bombastic remarks won't change that.

The way I see it, Obama wants to do the right thing but he is sucking up to the will of the leftists who hated the Iraq war because they hate Bush and they hate traditional America.

Bue he said he was going to withdraw immediately, then he said he was going wait... FYI the draw down when complete will still leave a significant amount of people in IRAQ, I believe the number was 30K... then he said... well you get the picture. Sorry to inform you but you were lied too.


A pyramid in Egypt if Devil was in charge of construction.

I don't remember him ever promising any specific timetable for withdrawal during the election campaign??

Believe me Richard, a number of us liberal Democrats are not happy with the Iraq withdrawal plans & think we should get the Hell out of there ASAP! (I understand the political pressures that President Obama faces in trying to end our mistake in Iraq, while not alienating either side to badly it would prevent his economic & other programs from being passed in Congress. Personally, I don't believe he has a chance of ever satisfying the Right Wing & should just discount their support for ANYTHING he does.(I do believe he is naive in that regard) He should pull out of Iraq IMMEDIATELY & get our NATO allies to REALLY fight with us in Afghanistan or pull our troops out of there too! (Afghanistan killed the Soviet Union & will be the death of us too, if we fall into the same trap!....Leave a residual force in the area that can swoop in....... kill Al Quieda & Taliban terrorists....& then Swoop out!! :lol:

I don't believe I was lied to Richard. It's a fact of life that ALL Presidential candidates will "stretch the truth" to get votes. Anyone who doesn't understand that fact of life is naive....& I'm NOT naive! ;)

"And that's why I put forward a bill that would begin a phased redeployment and have all our troops out by March 31st of next year."

If you want to start comparing campaign promises with what finally happens after election, I would be happy to compare ANY two candidates you choose or any former President. Campaign promises are simply "Sales Techniques" to get you to buy the product .....which rarely performs exactly as advertised.

I don't know if you intended to say "rain of salt" but I would agree that a grain won't do it these days!

I'm not going to waste my time digging up all of GW Bush's campaign lies from 2000 alone (I'm a uniter, not a devider, .......we shouldn't be using our military to Nation Build.......etc)
You don't seriously claim that Bush really "performed exactly as advertised"....do you?

Edit: I should know better than to debate you though Mike. You'll never admit when you are wrong or even that it's possible that you could be wrong. :nono:

Hey...I gave you the AP list....Bush did what he said he would do...bottom line.


Obama has basically done the same but he has broken several solid promises already.

Bush wasn't any more of a lie than any other politician....just so you know.
