Yesterday, more examples of disgusting U.S. arrogance and hypocrisy spewed from the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. Here's a blog entry she posted regarding Iraqi leadership's desire to remove foreign military forces from their country:
On Maliki’s Call for a Timetable on U.S. Troops Withdrawing from Iraq
July 8th, 2008 by Speaker Pelosi
President Bush refuses to heed the clear warnings of our military leaders about the harmful impact the war in Iraq is having on the readiness of our armed forces and our country’s ability to fight the real war on terrorism in Afghanistan and around the world.
A bipartisan majority in Congress—representing the wishes of the American people — supports a timetable for redeployment as an essential step in ending the Iraq war, refocusing on the real war on terrorism, rebuilding our military and reinvesting in job creation and other critical priorities here at home. The President has refused to even consider taking steps toward ending a war that has now cost more than 4,100 American lives, seriously wounded tens of thousands of our troops, and cost taxpayers trillions of dollars.
President Bush refuses to listen to Congress or the American people, but he cannot support Iraqi political reconciliation and security and ignore Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki’s call for a timetable for the withdrawal.
With a disturbing lack of concern for all of humanity, she says not a fucking word about the harmful impact the "war" (which, let's face it already, is really a hostile attempt to take control of a sovereign nation) has had on Iraq and Iraqis.
Shame on you, Nancy Pelosi! Shame on America!
