The Real Time Table That Iraqis Set: 2010-- McBush Against The World Again


This weekend there was general hysteria in the McBush camp when Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said specifically that he agrees with Barack Obama's timeline for getting U.S. troops out of Iraq (and especially away from population centers). McBush has been having the vapors of this ever since and have badgered and threatened al-Maliki to retract. Despite so unsubstantiated quibbling about the translations and contexts, etc, al-Maliki and his government are still saying they want the troops out by 2010. McCain's camp fears that that dooms his whole raison d'etre for his campaign.

It must have hurt especially badly this morning when the lobbyists went in and told McCain that British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, said he agrees with al-Maliki.
Gordon Brown prepared the ground for a historic realignment in the "war on terror" yesterday by setting out a four-point plan for withdrawal of British troops from Iraq by the end of next year.

Although he is refusing to set a detailed timetable for withdrawal, it is clear Mr Brown is in agreement with the US presidential candidate Barack Obama on the need for military action in Afghanistan to take priority. Both appear to be working to a 16-month timetable.

While Mr Brown addressed troops in Basra and met Nouri al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, the Democratic hopeful arrived in Afghanistan to declare the US mission there to be more important than that in Iraq.

McCain feels otherwise and he clearly states he doesn't give a hoot what the Iraqi people think or want-- or, for that matter, what the American people think or want. Watch this authoritarian asshole in TV exposing himself behind his signature Crypt Keeper smile:

Of course, McCain isn't all alone. The extremist NeoCons who got us into this mess in the first place, are right there with him, still unconcerned about anything apart from their own "might makes right," "law of the jungle" vision of international relations. True, John Derbyshire is more baboon than legitimate policy spokesperson but he does seem to parrot what's coming out of the McCain camp. "We should tell Maliki, loudly and in public, that he owes his job to us, and that further prosecution of our military operations in his country will be conducted with regard only to U.S. interests, as determined in consensus by our established domestic political processes. And if he doesn't like that, he can go to hell." Someone should read this to the blue thumb boosters like Condi or even the Commander-in-Chimp and ask them for a comment.

And you'll never guess how The Terrible-Tempered Mr. Bang wants to determine the actual time and date of the Iraqi troop withdrawal--and yes, it involves some rather weird and unwholesome types, for the most part....
