General Petraeus, Robert Gates, Vladimir Putin, All speak the truth, Of course Bush discounts them to stay the course of war!
On Tim Russert I just heard Republican talking head Senator Boehner say that General Petraeus will tell us how things are going in Iraq. Wait a minute! Petraeus has already weighed in.
The new US commander in Iraq has warned the country is "doomed to continued violence and civil strife" if American and Iraqi forces fail to work together to improve security.
As America's troop surge in Baghdad gathers force, Defense Secretary Robert Gates is already planning for failure. If the battle for security in Iraq languishes, he has told Congress he is prepared to move troops "out of harm's way".
Policy experts at the Pentagon are drawing up plans for a fresh change in strategy should it be required. "I would be irresponsible if I weren't thinking about what the alternatives might be," Mr Gates said.
Knowing that the Pentagon is planning for failure in Iraq I first have to say that failure in Iraq was a given from day one and it will not be stopped and it will encompass the entire middle east.
Yesterday Speaking at a conference of the world's top security officials, including the Iranian nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani, Putin said nations "are witnessing an almost uncontained hyper use of force in international relations." Sadly to me most of us can see where it is headed. "One state, the United States, has overstepped its national borders in every way," he told the 250 officials, including more than 40 defense and foreign ministers.
"This is nourishing an arms race with the desire of countries to get nuclear weapons," Putin said, but did not elaborate on specifics and did not mention the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. He accused Bush of seriously changing the balance of power. Don't for a minute think Russia and china are going to lie there and let Bush attack Iran as he stupidly thinks.
To top it off yesterday I was sent this story titled: Target Iran: US able to strike in the spring, Despite denials, Pentagon plans for possible attack on nuclear sites are well advanced
Ewen MacAskill in Washington Saturday February 10, 2007 The Guardian Yesterday was Finished off with :
US Defense Minister Robert Gates called for increasing US army in order to be ready for a large-scale operation. North Korea, Iran, Russia and China are listed among potential enemies.
"We don't know what's going to develop in places like Russia and China, in North Korea, in Iran and elsewhere," the Pentagon head said at US Senate Armed Services Committee hearings. He supported increasing military expenditures, as it will allow increasing the number of "free detachments."
The statements seemingly shocked Americans. I'm telling you I have said it here many times and have sometimes been ridiculed for it but It completely shocks me and I somehow missed this.
This really bothers me because I have been saying for quite some time now that Bush will stay the course in Iraq until he can find the excuse to attack Iran as most of the world expects to happen in April. I also find Gate's statements very troubling since I have also said for some time that when all is said and done China, Russia, Iran, and the non aligned Nations would join together and go against the U.S.
We must know this and Gate's statement proves it! What Gate's calls a possibility is a known fact as I see it and Bush knows it and is preparing for it.
