One of the Faux 'Consultants" a retired colonel
or similar rank...just told the blondie on there that the US had no plan to re-consript the iraqi army and that this has been a terrible mistake.

She was so thrown that one of her own would say that the pResident and his minions made a mistake that she was almost wordless.

The soldier was quite mad about it - I think the Republicans are losing the military - they're the last who want to see their own troops die for no reason, no mission, no results. This is something that they've been warning about since Vietnam and...we did it again! For years I heard them railing aobut 'Democrat Wars' as Mr Dole once said. Well this is a Repub War and it's all theirs. Can't blame Johnson, Truman, Kennedy, or Roosevelt for this one...

2. They never want to admit that Eisenhower was the first president...
...to send "advisors" to South Vietnam, either. That happened in 1956, so the first five years of the Vietnam War happened under Ike's watch, not JFK's.

3. I saw that bit. Amazing, really.
He said we went in with no plan for security!

He said companies are making "many millions" of dollars training the Iraqis and are in no hurry to complete lucrative contracts!

Earlier two of their commentators were equally truthful in evaluating the growing threat of the insurgency!

Amazing. The regular producers/directors must be on vacation.

4. Did they really think the Iraqis would jump into formation...?
and follow orders to shoot their own people? They are more out of touch than anyone could ever imagine....

5. Clinton should have killed terror before we got in office!
it's all Clinton's fault!

(but then Clinton would have been the hero that killed terror. Oops)
I'd love to play checkers for money with these idiots. Or tic tac toe.

6. Did you see the FAUX headline, "Americans attacked by 300 terrorists?"
I almost spit out my juice.
