Democrats Threaten Iraqi PM
Iraqi PM Maliki received a not so veiled threat from Senate Democrats on his lack of support for Israel and its massive campaign of collective punishment being carried out in Lebanon.
In a letter to Maliki, the Senators write "Your failure to condemn Hezbollah's aggression and recognize Israel's right to defend itself raises serious questions about whether Iraq under your leadership can play a constructive role in resolving the current crisis and bringing stability to the Middle East.”
I suspect what they really mean is:
Puppet boy, if you don't get with the US program we will take you out. We have spent billions to get a government that will do our bidding and you’re not going to go solo on us now.
So much for democracy, free speech and all that other crap about freedom, when you are bought and paid for, eh Maliki. And these are the democrats. They like to bring out the tough talk round about election time. I would watch my back if I were you.
The signatories include Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Senator Charles Schumer of New York. Several Democratic lawmakers, including Senator Hillary Clinton and Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi, have indicated they may boycott Maliki’s speech today unless he renounces his comments.
Howard Dean seems to think that our billions should buy us a puppet government too.
Speaking at a gathering of business leaders in Florida on Wednesday, Dean called Maliki is “an anti-Semite.” Dean added: "We don't need to spend $200 and $300 and $500 billion bringing democracy to Iraq to turn it over to people who believe that Israel doesn't have a right to defend itself and who refuse to condemn Hezbollah."
The terrible crime he has committed that provoked these threats from democrats?
Al-Maliki has called for a ceasefire and condemned what he called Israel’s “operation of mass destruction and mass punishment.”
I suppose that hits a little to close to home. Thier sensibilities for Israel and its American style aggression are so offended that it requires them to turn their backs on joining a simple call for a cease fire and an end to civilian casualties. You can boycott his speech Senators, you can issue threats, but the world knows why you can't condemn Israel. You are just as guilty.
Pathetic...the lot of you.
If you thought these senators were really interested in peace and reconciliation....think again.
