Diplomats don't want to die for Iraq, worry about their kids being parentless, what about our soldiers?
I really have to laugh and this whole issue should get more publicity. We should be discussing it more and I have not seen it at all on the MSM. Diplomats don't want to serve but our troops must? Let's get this discussed.
last week we discussed the fact that despite the chief idiot swearing off a draft for our military as he could lie to them and misuse and abuse their Patriotism. He was reduced to being forced to Draft Diplomats who know better, to work in the war zone fortress he has created as a monument to his middle east breakdown and so called successful middle east democratization, until he can get his new world order world war three going full swing which will happen when he attacks Iran. Draft for Diplomats to man failed Baghdad Fort
We discussed numerous times that we don't know what it will be yet but Bush will find an excuse to attack them so he can appear to be forced to fight his Forever war. as Bush and Iran have been going tit for tat looking for an excuse to get this war going it seems forever now they feign concern? Many U.S. officials believe small conflicts on the ground or at sea are potentially riskier than a nuclear program. While the White House dwells on Iran's nuclear program, senior U.S. diplomats and military officers fear that an incident on the ground in Iraq is a more likely trigger for a possible confrontation with the Islamic Republic.
In one sign of their concern, U.S. military policymakers are weighing whether to release some of the Iranian personnel they have taken into custody in Iraq. Doing so could reduce the risk that radical Iranian elements might seize U.S. military or diplomatic personnel to retaliate, thus raising the danger of an escalation, a senior Defense official said.

We discussed that once the excuse is found the fact that the world is rallying to take us on in the middle east when Bush attacks Iran to start his new world order world war three. Read our story on the world rallying against Bush
We are also watching as Israel steps up threats to invade the Gaza strip. Israel escalated its threats on Tuesday to invade the Hamas-run Gaza Strip in response to Palestinian rocket fire after a plan to withhold key utilities drew objections from legal experts and foreign powers.
Since quitting Gaza in 2005, Israel has mounted regular commando raids and air strikes on rocket crews but the salvoes have not ceased. Two such operations on Tuesday killed at least four Hamas policemen and wounded six Palestinian civilians.
Islamist Hamas's takeover of the territory in June stoked calls in the Jewish state for a big military sweep. "Every passing day brings us closer to a broad operation in Gaza," Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told reporters. "We are not looking forward to it (and) we would be happy if circumstances prevented it." Read about Israel's efforts for new middle east order
Turkey is threatening to erupt into civil war over the issue of going into Iraq in a full scale military attack on the PPK in Kurdish Iraq thereby making the area even more volatile. Kurds in southeast Turkey voted this summer in record numbers for Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his promise to bring peace to their region. Now, with Turkish troops massed for a possible invasion of Iraq, the talk is of curtailed political rights and ethnic strife.
Erdogan is threatening a full-scale military operation in northern Iraq to root out guerrillas from the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, after almost 50 soldiers and civilians were killed last month. Such a move would exacerbate tensions between Turks and the estimated 15 million ethnic Kurds in Turkey, who represent 20 percent of the country's population.
``The rising tide of nationalism feels directed at Kurds, and people here fear a civil war,'' said Fahri Timur, 33, head of the Human Rights Association in the Kurdish town of Hakkari. ``This government has improved the situation for Kurds, but we can't expect respect for human rights in the Please read about Turkey joining the middle east breakdown
Amidst this still just beginning middle east breakdown soon to be world war can you blame American Diplomats for speaking the truth about being forced to serve in the middle of this mess? Calling it "a potential death sentence," several hundred diplomats expressed their resentment Wednesday over a new State Department policy that could force them to serve in Iraq or risk losing their jobs. Others pointed out the risks of such a rule, considering the dangers of a war zone, lack of security and regular rocket attacks on U.S. personnel.
One State Department worker complained she was not provided medical treatment for her post-traumatic stress disorder after she voluntarily served in Iraq. The session was marked by angry exchanges, according to an audio recording of the meeting held at the State Department. The sharpest comments came from Jack Croddy, a 36-year veteran of the Foreign Service. To loud applause from his fellow workers, he asked how the State Department could protect people in Baghdad or the Iraq countryside when "incoming is coming in every day. Rockets are hitting the Green Zone.
"It is one thing if someone believes in what is going on over there and volunteers," he said, "but it is another thing to send someone over there on a forced assignment. And I'm sorry, but basically that is a potential death sentence and you know it. Who will raise our children if we are dead or wounded?" please read the whole story
The thing that angers me is that Iraq is a death trap that is spreading throughout the entire middle east as it was expected to and I for one can not blame our Diplomats for not wanting to get in the middle of Bush's success and risk death but I do not like the idea that my sons and all our troops are expected to. What about them? What about their kids? What about our Grandchildren?
With those questions asked I do not like what I am hearing once again but I have to hope that the diplomats will not cave in to threats and will set an example that will reverberate throughout the military and our America. Many of us are against everything Bush not just what he is doing in the middle east but around the world. Hopefully this is the beginning of a growing dissention that will hopefully work against Bush's new world order control and warmongering. What do you think?
