    Since when does our bobble-headed VP make pronouncements about US military matters? Shouldn't he be somewhere in Blair House, making a bead bracelet or a keychain or something else within his capacities?

    Well, it sure is some good news coming out of that Country, in any case. I hope it's true and that the Iraqis are ready to take control of their own security. That would be great!

    It sure does and we can thank President George W. Bush and American troops for the strength of those Iraqi forces. : )

    Daaaang!!! How many al Qaeda leaders have been snuffed out since Obama took charge? And how many under the Shrub's brilliant command? Yeah, thought so.

    It is a result of that good training from GW. I am sure Joe and Obama will try and take credit for it.

    Ever since our troops went to fight in Iraq, there have never been a time when any Iraqi city has been more dangerous than our blue American cities like Detroit, Chicago, and Washington DC where it is completely Democrat.

    It would seem that Democrats are more dangerous than Al Queda, more people die in our blue cities and they have all died at the hands of a Democrat.
