Amidst partisan bickering over failing surge report Allawi returning to take charge of Democracy, Iran is not Happy! Speaks volumes for Iran's plans!


Amidst partisan bickering over failing surge report Allawi returning to take charge of Democracy, Iran is not Happy! This Speaks volumes for Iran's plans for Iraq.

This should be interesting: I have been gleaning various reports looking for information in regard to the upcoming Surge Report. I have been thinking of this because as far as I am concerned our troops have done their job well but that does not matter. I really do not know if the surge is working or not but I do know that the Iraqi infrastructure continues to fail and basic human needs can not even be met. What is called a Government has not and will not take security control of even 1 of the 1,200 construction projects and to me there is no sign of a viable Iraqi Government.
I was looking at the partisan efforts to paint the report to favor one party or the other and realized the report is worthless. The Associated Press has learned the Government Accountability Office, or GAO, will report that at least 13 of the 18 benchmarks to measure the surge of U.S. troops to Iraq are unfulfilled ahead of a September 15 deadline. That's when Bush is to give a detailed accounting of the situation eight months after he announced the policy, according to three officials familiar with the matter.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the report has not been made public, also said the administration is preparing a case to play down the findings, arguing that Congress ordered the GAO to use unfair, "all or nothing"

The Iraqi Government is a failure to me and I realized that because of the partisan posturing so each side could follow their own desires that once again we were not going to hear the truth from our Government. If you read the spin put on this report by each side you are as confused as I am. Then I found out that Ayad Allawi is returning to Iraq to take things under control.
Ayad Allawi said Sunday he will soon return to Baghdad to "reverse the course in Iraq." Speaking from Amman, Jordan, Allawi told CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer," that al-Maliki leads a government loyal to Iran and Shiite interests. Allawi accused the prime minister of "supporting militias to take the rule of law in their hands." That really goes without saying in light of the role Ahmadinejad is playing with Al-Maliki. It is a little to cozy for neutrality. Allawi also said he would like to see the United States begin to withdraw troops immediately, but realizes the process could take more than two years.
"I would play my role in Iraq in whatever capacity is required to change Iraq into an unsectarian country, to a peaceful country, to a democratic country," Allawi said.
However, Allawi's ties to a powerful Washington-based GOP lobbying firm raised eyebrows. Allawi has hired Barbour Griffith & Rogers, a GOP lobbying firm that employs two of Bush's former foreign policy aides: Robert Blackwill served as Bush's envoy to Iraq and helped form Allawi's interim government in 2004, and Philip Zelikow formerly served as counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

It seems to me that Allawi is just what Bush has been hoping for and at the same time I have to wonder who is funding Allawi's efforts. This could be Bush's out. I do not remember what the original problem was so I was curious as to Allawi's true intentions to unite Iraq until I saw Iran's response. Iran is after Allawi! The Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei described Allawi’s possible re-election as the Iraqi primer a “red line” not to be crossed at all costs.

Allawi supporters are being arrested and that tells me that Allawi at least appears to be the right man to unify Iraq but Iran for one does not want it. I have to believe they are showing their hand in coming out against Allawi and I for one wish him luck and have to wonder what Bush will do next.

Alright, here's what I got.

On Netscape 8.1 the comment link shows.

On Internet Explorer 6 the comment link shows.

My site shows on both browsers, however on Internet Explorer my sidebar don't show up until the bottom of the last post.

It than shows all of it, but if you don't scroll all the way down to the end of the last post you won't see them.

Now at work under Internet Explorer and Netscape 7.2 I don't see a comment link on chucks site.

Why that is I do not know. I do know however that most blogs whether the end in dot com or are known as weblogs or blogs they are blocked.

So far I can see the sites on blogspot and most under the Crawfords links.

I can only access a couple of the political blogs and all that might be due to the filtering software by my company.

See if chucks name has a link too his profile and let him know if you don't see a comment link at the end of his days post.

I'll also leave a comment there for him about your problem if you still don't see a link or leave a comment by later tonight.

As for Allawi taking over in Baghdad I think that he will immediately become a target for assassination. Der Fuhrer don't really care as that would just be another excuse to go to war with Iran.

Catch you later. Let me know if your able too leave a comment.

God Bless.

Got to go and continue reading my links I have up.

God Bless.

Perhaps this guy is another Chalabi who is in it for the cash, and will fit right in with Bush.

Reconstitution

You're alright!
I thank you for that. larry made me see the light and you just mentioned something that I have encountered in the past and may be able to help you with.
The problem was that I was not aware that Chuck wrote so much in one day. I used to write on 5 or 6 things per day but stopped because some told me I wrote too much and I decided too that I would stick to one subject per day to simplify things for everyone.
Anyway As I was told, I found Chucks comment section at the end of his stories. I did not comment though because there was much to chose from. I will though and will link to him because he is another I want to keep up with.
You made me realize another problem I have encountered and that is that because of program, font size, link lehgth. etc yor right hand column will not have the room to show up until it is below the left column. I have found that in most cases you can eliminate or reduce the link and the right hand side will go up where it belongs.
Anon I appreciate you and others real concern. In light of all the examples of poor leadership and lack of principles I was going to discuss that today but we will see.
I taught all my sons that you lead by example. With that in mind we are in trouble. What the hell is wrong with people?

I did figure out how to comment and I was the problem. I do agree with you that Allawi will be assassinated and most likely by Iran. They are already arresting his supporters and coming out against him. Go figure! You know whay that means.

I thank you for dropping Chuck a note. I will be dropping by his site but welcome the opportunity to parley with him. Thanks again!

I was surprised to hear of the Bush connections and curious as to who was really funding him if not some of our own clandestine interests. We seem to be hedging our bets but I do think as anon alluded to and that is that he will be assassinated and by Iran.

an average patriot said...

Thanks again Larry! I will check out Jolly Roger. I am sure we agree. I have to ask you, I spend so much time researching the news I have to wonder how some of you have so much time to comment on so many other sites or is that your priority. I am starting to feel like I owe more time to others but the vast majority of my time is spent doing research.









thanks again Larry

The only time I see a problem with my sidebar is if I use Internet Explorer.

All the rest of the browsers display properly. And I do use Firefox as my regular browser.

Thanks though for thinking of that but since it displays correctly on my other browsers I just not use IE unless I have too.

Take care and ....

God Bless.
