Gen Abizaid says Iraq headed for civil war. Gen McCaffrey says it's here
Saw this on MSNBC. Gen Barry McCaffrey said he finds all this talk about civil war in Iraq kind of silly. He said that it's been in a civil war for the last two years. It has been low grade, but has intensified in the last 30 days.

1. I'm guessing Gen Abizaid feels duty bound to be optimistic ...

... but you gotta figure he knows Iraq has devolved into absolute chaos. Too bad he cannot speak more truthfully; maybe he figures he's helping his troops.

a person who has problems admitting mistakes. a person who no matter how absurd the stand is going to keep standing there. he has lied to me too many times sorry

5. I agree with your assessment. Just trying to figure out ...
... how he could possibly rationalize what he is saying.

2. Why do those lying lieberals hate Merka so much?
Damn commies should be standing behind the preznit in time of war. That's what's wrong with our army, it's why we're losing this war. Letting commies like that in, and even making them generals.

3. I guess those two four star generals hate America
When will proud "conservative" bastards admit they were wrong, that bush and his band of pirates are nothing more then criminals propped up by ignorant trash who think they are "conservatives?"
