H'okay. A new coalition of Sunni parties in Iraq have set forth their list of priorities. (h/t Rantburg)
Besides reviewing current laws and releasing everyone from prisons the coalition has come up with a novel idea:
[T]hey will work to make the "occupation forces" put forth a timetable for their withdrawal.
No, I'm not complaining about the Sunni parties. They have actually joined the political process to make their voices heard. What happens if/when they don't obtain all their wishes I don't know. But that is for the Iraqi people to work out.
But, how do I say this...I don't think they got the idea of a withdrawal timetable on their own. I know they want us out. I know we're not leaving until the 'job is done' and they are aware of the necessity to change conditions in their country before we can leave. But they could simply have said that. Their other priorities are set in general terms.
They want a timetable for our withdrawal.
Thank you Reid, Kennedy, Pelosi, and all the rest of the Democrats who are trying to deceive the American people. Thank you for your literally blind opportunism. Thank you for believing that every word you say is heard only by American voters. Thank you for shitting all over the Iraqi people by your attempts to delegitimize this war.
Bush and the Iraqi people, all of them, will work it out. But thank you all you revisionist Democrats for making the job so much more difficult.
