Iraq: tout va mieux

Let’s ‘Surge’ Some More

By MICHAEL YON
April 11, 2008; Page A17

It is said that generals always fight the last war. But when David Petraeus came to town it was senators – on both sides of the aisle – who battled over the Iraq war of 2004-2006. That war has little in common with the war we are fighting today.

I may well have spent more time embedded with combat units in Iraq than any other journalist alive. I have seen this war – and our part in it – at its brutal worst. And I say the transformation over the last 14 months is little short of miraculous.

The change goes far beyond the statistical decline in casualties or incidents of violence. A young Iraqi translator, wounded in battle and fearing death, asked an American commander to bury his heart in America. Iraqi special forces units took to the streets to track down terrorists who killed American soldiers. The U.S. military is the most respected institution in Iraq, and many Iraqi boys dream of becoming American soldiers. Yes, young Iraqi boys know about « GoArmy.com. »

As the outrages of Abu Ghraib faded in memory – and paled in comparison to al Qaeda’s brutalities – and our soldiers under the Petraeus strategy got off their big bases and out of their tanks and deeper into the neighborhoods, American values began to win the war.

Iraqis came to respect American soldiers as warriors who would protect them from terror gangs. But Iraqis also discovered that these great warriors are even happier helping rebuild a clinic, school or a neighborhood. They learned that the American soldier is not only the most dangerous enemy in the world, but one of the best friends a neighborhood can have.

La descente aux Enfers, selon Baraque

The Slow Descent Into Hell

Barack Obama showed his deft political touch today, and demonstrated his keen insight into the lives of the little people in this country, with a speech that is sure to be worth at least thirty points in Pennsylvania in the upcoming primary:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them… And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

I asked around the area, to see how his obvious compassion for Pennsylvanians was viewed. This is just one story, from one man in West Deer Township, but I’m sure that it’s typical.

« By cracky, it’s like the man sees into my soul!

« Thirty years ago, I had a good job in the mill in Pittsburgh. I was bringing in a good income, going to jazz clubs, discussing Proust over white wine and brie, with my gay friends of all colors. I was all for free trade, so that we could sell the steel overseas, and I never bothered to go to church, let alone actually believe in God.

« But then, the plant closed down, and I couldn’t get another job. I went on unemployment, and found odd jobs here and there, but they barely paid the rent in the loft, and the payment on the Bimmer. I couldn’t afford the wine and brie any more, and had to shift over to beer and brats.

« Of course, as a result, I started hanging out with the wrong crowd–the beer drinkers.

20 Questions à Barack

20 Questions for Barack Obama
By John Hawkins
Friday, April 11, 2008
So far, because the mainstream media is smitten with him, Barack Obama has been able to get by running a campaign based on hope, change, unity, love, and rainbows made of cuddly kittens.

However, before we get around to coronating Barack as our new President/Cult of Unity Leader, there are a few questions he should have to answer before America starts drinking his Kool-Aid.

Granted, many members of our esteemed press seem to consider it crass to expect Obama to actually answer questions about unimportant things like his agenda, his character, and what he actually wants to do when he becomes the leader of the free world. That’s why he would probably get away with doing what slick politicians like him always do when they’re asked tough questions: lie, misdirect, and dodge.

But still, wouldn’t it be great if there were some members of the mainstream media that at least had enough integrity to ask him the tough questions in the first place? Ok, you can stop laughing now. Let me put it another way: if there are any Hillary Clinton fans in the press who’d like to help derail Obama so that your preferred liberal candidate can win, start putting questions like these to him:

* You’ve made unifying the American public and putting our political divisions behind us one of the central themes of your campaign. Yet, National Journal ranked you as the single most liberal senator in 2007. So, which liberal beliefs of yours are you willing to give up for unity’s sake?

* Along the same lines, John McCain has been behind numerous pieces of prominent bi-partisan legislation. So, if voters are looking for a candidate who can unify the country, wouldn’t he be a better choice than you?

* If you didn’t agree with Jeremiah Wright’s racist and anti-American views, why did you take your own children to his church and expose them to what he had to say?

Y a t’il un Psychiatre dans l’avion ?

 La les gars , on se lache ! Un exemple de ce qu’on peut lire sur le Foirum de l’imMonde par un deses contributeurs d’elite !

Ca commence a sentir la « fin de race  » ..

Au fait quelqu’un y a compris quelque chose ?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Soit vous faites sans l’antisionisme cynique, soit vous avez basculé de l’autre coté du miroir, dans le monde sioniste idyllique qui n’a rien de concret, n’en a jamais eu sinon pour les Juifs, avant qu’il se concrétise, et n’en aura jamais.
Le sionisme s’effondrera comme s’est effondré le stalinisme, parce que ni l’un ni l’autre n’étaient des humanismes.
Quand il n’y aura plus de Palestiniens, quand il n’y aura plus d’ennemi, arabe, perse ou autre (pourquoi pas un jour européen), ce qui par construction idéologique ne peut arriver, les Juifs eux-même seront ls victimes du sionisme, qui n’est en fait qu’une dictature des Juifs comme le stalinisme était la dictature du prolétariat.
Dans le sionisme, le Juif est libre parce qu’il ne remet pas en cause l’idéologie. Quand il le fait il est traité de faux juif. C’est la preuve de son statut de soumis. Ce n’est que parce qu’il y a cette soumission, y compris chez les Juifs de gauche, que le sionisme est démocratique pour les Juifs. Pour les non-juifs, il ne l’a jamais été.

FASCIO NEC FASCIO : NICOLAS SARKOZY

Posted on Samedi 12 avril 2008

salazar-manuel-cp.jpg
Vu la bande de batakwekes et autres métèques qu’il trimbale dans son staff « united colors of Sarkozy », il est très vite devenu difficile pour nos gauchistes de traiter notre président de fasciste. Cependant pour demeurer plein de ressources rhétoriques, le gauchiste a trouvé autre chose. Il parle désormais de « politique fascisante » tout en traitant le ministre de l’immigration « d’albinos ». C’est pas un peu raciste ça ?

Alors bien qu’il ne soit pas toujours facile de prendre la défense de notre président, surtout lorsqu’il tient un discours sur l’immigration, le 11 mars, entre les deux tours des municipales, depuis Toulon, ancien fief du Front National, ou bien encore depuis qu’il tend à transformer notre devise « République indivisible, laïque, démocratique et sociale » en « République communautaire, catholique, bruxelloise et sécuritaire », je prends quand même le risque de le défendre un peu.
