Guns and Words on Iraq

I.E.D.s and E.F.P.s and guns, oh my. Did you know there are weapons in Iraq?
Weapons produced in other countries, too. I declare, this is shocking, shocking.
Will someone get the news to the wingnut bloggers, because they\’re running around
in their rhetorical firing squad again screaming about the obvious. Evidently, they haven\’t heard about the exploding black market in arms raging in Iraq. That\’s what happens when Republicans are put in charge of foreign policy these days. They forget that people need money and if all they have are weapons and guns they\’ll sell them for their supper.

A bunch of explosives and armament in Iraq, even if manufactured in Iran, doesn\’t
mean Iran\’s government is starting — wait for it — a \”soft war\”
with Iran. Soft
war
, you\’ve got to love those conservatives and their determination
to get another war going. They have such a way with words. But once again, they
refuse to listen to the military. Instead, they prefer a circular conversation
with each other, just like before the \’06 election. Facts shall not impede wingnut
bloggerland.

Again, General
Peter Pace
says not so fast, as we talked about yesterday.

Conservatives think they know better. Those military generals, they\’re just
so silly. We\’ve been here before.

But just as one debate is revving up on arms from Iran in Iraq, the war of
words goes on unabated.



Senator Barack Obama of Illinois said Monday that he had misspoken when he
suggested that the lives of more than 3,000 American soldiers killed in Iraq
had been “wasted.”

As he arrived in New Hampshire, Mr. Obama said he would “absolutely
apologize” to military families if they were offended by a remark he
made in Iowa while criticizing the Bush administration’s Iraq policy.

Restructures a Remark on Deaths

What\’s another word for \”mistake\”? Obama should ask Hillary Clinton,
because she\’s got a million of them.
