Obama Congratulates Own Kind - Neglects Military
On congratulating the feckless United Nations I guess that Obama was relying on the fact that Iraqi election law established a commission to guide future elections, unfortunately for Obama and the hapless people in the White House the committee has yet to be formed. President Obama is just another typical Democratic politician, in this case Obama went out and trumpeted a success that he had absolutely nothing to do with, a success that he in fact fought against and while doing so he congratulated a similar moral and strategic zero that had also fought against the establishment of an elected government in Iraq. All the while Obama has ignored the people who fought and died in order to rid Iraq of the predatory animals who stood against democratic elections. Yesterday was Obama's eleventh day in office.
Speaking of those brave Americans, here is a blog post from a (former?) member of the US Army who was on the ground guarding ballots during the 2005 Iraqi elections, in a comment on this Gateway Pundit post at 7:52 this morning kudzu630 wrote: "I was in Iraq in 2005, helped secure an election facility (see my blog) and saw how hard they the Iraqis worked to get it right. There was no UN. The UN cut and ran years ago and only had one or two workers I ran into in Baghdad. My CINC has now completely diminished the role the military has played in establishing a peaceful and democratically based Iraq."
If the Commander-in-Chief can't say it I will, thank you to all US service personnel and thank you kudzu630 and please pass that on to your colleagues at Fort Benning. There are Chicagoans who understand and appreciate your sacrifices.
