Pelosi: Surge Failed, Iran Rules Iraq

The special kind of delusion it takes to believe that Iraq was irretrievably lost in 2006 is still alive and well and in positions of leadership in the Democratic Party.

Speaking with the San Francisco Chronicle, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi insisted that the surge failed, and insists that if there is any progress, it is because Iran allowed it.

Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn't happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn't accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.

Cue the flaming skull.

Pelosi's needful delusions means that dictator-loving, Jew-hating 9/11 conspiracy-theorist Cindy Sheehan is not the most insane candidate vying for California's Eight District House seat.

Nancy Pelosi has become Colonel Nicholson from The Bridge of River Kwai. So obsessed with proving herself superior and her enemy (GWB) wrong, she's lost sight of who the real enemy is. Truly disgusting.

Yes, it is incredibly horrible to point out that Iran stopped the fighting between two Iranian-backed groups.

If you don't want Iraq to depend on Iran's "goodwill," maybe you should have thought twice about empowering a government controlled by Iran.

It is amusing that every time the surge fails, it is bailed out by people that conservatives hate: after the surge killed more people throughout most of 2007, violence was curbed (somewhat) by Sadr's cease-fire, and when the surge touched off a civil war in Basra, the Iranians stepped in and stopped it.

It must really gall conservatives that their boogymen like Sadr and the Mullahs keep bailing out Petraeus....

What Nancy? I'm sorry I can't hear you over all of the cognitive dissonance in here.

Comrade Pelosi just wants to take you to the promised land, where she will be the dictator. Of course, if she had a brain she would know that the drive-by media parrot can no longer make it so. That's what living in the past does for you.

Jimmuh Carter, the father of Iran and modern terrorism is looking for company, this time with nukes. I doubt Israel is going to sit still for being 'wiped out'.

Yes, and in Nancy's World....

1. We won the American War of Independence because "The British allowed it."

2. San Francisco is now located in the United States because "Mexico allowed it."

3. The North won the Civil War because "the South allowed it."

4. The Allies won World War II because "Hitler and Tojo allowed it."

5. We won the Cold War because "The Soviets allowed it."

Nancy Pelosi: Worst.Speaker.Ever.

Hopefully your post was sarcasm Volp.

Ouch, it hurt when my jaw hit the floor. Her world view is so divergent from reality that its literally a little scary that she is an elected official (even if she does represent a place as loopy as San Francisco).

The surge has been successful not only on the security side but also on the diplomatic side where most of the initial objectives have been met. This has been despite Iranís arming of terrorists not because of it.

The more the successes of the surge become obvious, the farther out into outer space the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism have to go to continue to make their outlandish claims of failure.

San Fran Nan seems to be following in the footsteps of people like Lord Haw-Haw, Seoul City Sue, Tokyo Rose, and Baghdad Bob.

If I may continue:

6. Nancy Pelosi is in Congress because "The Republican Party allowed it."

7. George W. Bush is in the Oval Office because "The Democratic Party allowed it."

Those two right there should make Nancy's head explode.

Man, I thought Vietnam anti-war screwballs were messed up when they spit on grunts coming home...this new version of Amerika blockading recruiting stations, bombing recruiting stations, openly supporting our enemy in print, politics and in the name of the Demokratic party is going way beyond the acceptable. I think it's time CA, NY and all other left wing liberal states supply their own DoD made up of the Code Pink types and truly see what their version of society will turn out like. They can then gaze with longing eyes across their border at the Free US of A and dream of days gone by.

Mike Boyce,
The Vietnam anti-war screwballs never spit on returning war vets. It's a made-up story, just like "the surge is working", "Saddam was a threat to the US", and W is "a compassionate conservative".
