Fox news showed Schumer making this ridiculous statement and asked one of their military analysts to comment on it. The analyst rightly said Schumer is a liar. I wish I could remember his name so I could send him a thank you for his spot on answer.

I haven't seen any other coverage of the or the analyst's answer but I wish it would get played and replayed until hell freezes over.

You can't totally blame the politicians in NY. The 'people' of NY put them there and keep them there knowing they are anti-american slime. (ex. Chuckie, Shrillary) The danger these politicians, including Criminal aliens are not criminals Rudy, are more dangerous to the individual family in America than all of the terrorists combined. The anti-american left think they are the educated elite while in fact they are the poorly to non-educated of the world. Brainwashed by people as stupid as you are does not equal education.

"Without political reconciliation the military troops will be unable to hold Iraq back from what worked for Saddam."

2% of the fighting is coming from Al Queda forces the other 98% is sectarian fighting. If millions are being exchanged to encourage Sunnis to purge Al Queda from Ramadi alone (inclusive of ONLY the city limits)how many trillions will it take to quell the militia infighting.

Yep, Greed solves all. (None of those billions gone missing during CPA's reign went to corruption either huh Paul?)

When Pretty boy george and the Dick can walk unattended in the streets of Bagdad then the mission will have been accomplished.

Until then this president is going to hand off this mess to a Democratic president. From there the military business talking heads will drag this on for a few more years when eventually the American public will step in and finally make it happen like they did in the 70's.

In the meantime the carbon emissions are growing at a rate of 2% a year in the US alone notwithstanding the growth worldwide. Digging ourselves deeper into a black hole while the ignorance of the 20% percenters will claim "we're making progress".

Steve Crickmore:

I think there is some common ground between what Schumer said: crediting the warlords (the tribal sheiks) for confronting Al Queda... and then credit to Bush and the Pentagon in strengthening them, through the surge, so that they are more successful. From an article in today's 'Washington Post'


The "Anbar Awakening" represented perhaps the most important shift in years, but it generated little debate at the White House. Long before the tribes switched sides, the administration conducted a policy exercise on how to team up with former insurgents. But when such an alliance occurred, it bubbled up from the ground with no Washington involvement. "We're not smart enough to know the course that these matters might take," Rice conceded to an Australian newspaper last week.

=====================================

Paul:

Steve you wouldn't mind quoting that in context now would you....

Bush benefited from good timing. As he introduced his new strategy, Marine commanders had already made common cause with local Sunni tribal leaders who had broken with the Sunni insurgent group al-Qaeda in Iraq, also called AQI.

Why the sheiks turned remains a point of debate, but it seems clear that the tribes resented al-Qaeda's efforts to ban smoking and marry local women to build ties to the region. "Marrying women to strangers, let alone foreigners, is just not done," Australian Lt. Col. David Kilcullen, a Petraeus adviser, wrote in an essay.

The sheik who forged the alliance with the Americans, Abdul Sattar Buzaigh al-Rishawi, traced the decision to fight al-Qaeda to Sept. 14, 2006, long before the new Bush strategy, but the president's plan dispatched another 4,000 U.S. troops to Anbar to exploit the situation.

So "the split" happened 90 days before the surge started. But as late as December there where still 70 attacks a day in Anbar. The chasing off of Al Qaeda didn't happen until the extra 4000 troops arrived.

Contrast that to Schumer who said the progress was made DESPITE the U.S. Troops.

I'm not sure the "common ground" that you can reach. Smucker is lying.

Further Steve, if you read ... (Below threshold)
Paul:

Further Steve, if you read your own quote, with the benefit of knowledge, it says less (or more) than you think.

The COIN doctrine under which the surge is being executed was written by Petreus. It specifically calls for operations like this.

Your quote again:

The "Anbar Awakening" represented perhaps the most important shift in years, but it generated little debate at the White House. Long before the tribes switched sides, the administration conducted a policy exercise on how to team up with former insurgents. But when such an alliance occurred, it bubbled up from the ground with no Washington involvement.

So we had the policy was generated LONG BEFORE the split. When our guys saw an opportunity they used the new policy to exploit it.

In other words, the surge is working.

Steve Crickmore:

Let us not get to far ahead of ourselves..The surge is working in Anbar in large part, because of our opponents- al Queda, many of whose leaders are foreigners, couldn't be more pre-medieval or barbaric even with their own brethren. The Sunnis, under Saddam, were noted for being traditionally less dogmatic than the Shiites. And the Iraqi Shiite militias or even non- al Queda Iraqi Sunni gangs have much more formidable local support, and will be alot harder to isolate.

Steve Crickmore:

Paul. I'm not an expert on Iraq but I feel the surge, by not engaging but surrounding the Al Queda insurgents- has worked militarily in one province,(Bush said he came to see with his own eyes, but didn't venture out of the heavily guarded airbase) and probably parts of Baghdad are now safer, where alot of ethnic cleansing is complete..But politically the situation is no better, looks even weaker ..civilian and American casualties are still high..And the real hard questions, the idea of permanent bases in Iraq, friendly oil contracts guaranteed by the Iraqi government, growing Iranian influence, on both sides of the border, are issues that are even further away perhaps from being resolved than they were 8 months ago.

Crickmore:But ... (Below threshold)
marc:

Crickmore:

But politically the situation is no better, looks even weaker ..

Hmmm... The Sunnis ended the final political boycott of the Assembly:

A small Sunni Arab bloc ended its parliamentary boycott Saturday, returning to the legislature as it considers key benchmark legislation demanded by Washington amid increasing pressure to end the political deadlock.

The return of the Iraqi Front for National Dialogue ends the last boycott of parliament, which had contributed to the political paralysis.

Major Shiite, Sunni Arab and Kurdish leaders said they had agreed in principle on some of the 18 issues that the U.S. has set as benchmarks. Among them were holding provincial elections, releasing prisoners held without charge and changing the law preventing many former members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party from holding government jobs and elected office.

The so-called de-Baathification draft law appears to be the closest to being ready.

"We will receive it today or tomorrow and then it will be put forward in parliament for discussion this week," deputy parliament speaker Khaled al-Attiyah told The Associated Press by telephone.

You were saying what about no progress?

And BTW a new deal on the oil law is about to be announced as well.

But don't let that deter your from your position of denier.
