U.S. Commanders: Flapjack's 16-Month Withdrawal Plan Nearly Impossible

We've known this, of course, even strictly for a logical standpoint, much less the moral view. To do as Obama has pledged to the Copperheads would mean the abandonment of hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer-purchased U.S. equipment, and is not just an abandonment of the Iraqi people and an affront to those who have sacrificed so much to get Iraq where it is today.

Still, it's nice to see his hollow, defeatist-placating rhetoric exposed as being "very dangerous."

I think we can now safely say that The Obamessiah has, mentally, entered into low-orbit around Planet Zircon.

You see, "community organizers" and "Light Workers" like His Senatorial Majesty don't have to worry about little things like, oh say, moving thousands of troops and even more thousands of pieces of equipment in a safe, orderly manner all the while without getting attacked.

Can't Lord Baracky simply part the oceans and we can just drive our equipment home?

Moron. How would you like to be in the rearguard for this idiot's plan of retreat?

Back in the days of Pinks and Greens with brown shoes I was the commander of the "Rear Guard" during a Battlegroup night withdarawal. My nineteen year old jeep driver was far more accomplished as a military strategist than Obamessiah or his advisors General McDull or the nitwit from Slavia.

I'm always fascinated by the idiots who plan to withdraw the combat troops and leave the support and combat support troops in contact to be slaughterd.

To get it done in that time frame the US would have to leave behind so much gear and equipment that it would be cheaper to stay for an additional year or so.

The worst part is that people actually buy Obama's BS. I had a family reunion the other day and nearly tore my hair out listening to my relatives talk about how Obama "would fix everything and get us out of this stupid war!"

Many Middle East experts (not just military officers) already know this is a ridiculous claim. Why hasn't out Presidential candidate figured it out? Or more of the American public for that matter.

He knows it. Believe you me, he knows it.

It will be interesting to see how he "refines" his position once he speaks directly to the generals in Iraq. No doubt he'll say the troops will stay longer, but we must not of been listening because apparently this is what he has said all along.
