Proving he is Bush's replacement by reiterating what Cheney said McCain stressed that it was important to maintain the U.S. commitment in Iraq, where a U.S.-Iraq military operation is under way to clear al-Qaida from its last urban stronghold of Mosul, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad. Violence has dropped throughout the capital with an influx of some 30,000 additional U.S. soldiers as well as a Sunni revolt against al-Qaida and a cease-fire by radical Shiite cleric Muqtada Al Sadr. McCain, Cheney agree US in Iraq for long haul
They fail to remind you that violence is down in Baghdad primarily because most of its residents have abandoned their homes and fled. They are now part of the two million nomads thanks to Bush's hell on earth Cheney and McCain also call success. What is worse is McCain and Cheney will both be visiting Oman and other important allies in the middle east further proving that McCain being Bush's heir is a foregone conclusion. Cheney's exact word used to describe the so called improvement in Iraq was Phenomenal! Well! Today some truth!
"Despite claims that the security situation has improved in recent months, the human rights situation is disastrous," Amnesty International says in its report, titled "Carnage and Despair: Iraq Five Years On." In a summary of the report, Amnesty writes that "a climate of impunity has prevailed, the economy is in tatters and the refugee crisis" keeps escalating.
The International Committee of the Red Cross, in a report titled "Iraq: No Let-up in the Humanitarian Crisis," writes, "Despite limited improvements in security in some areas, armed violence is still having a disastrous impact. Civilians continue to be killed in the hostilities. "The injured often do not receive adequate medical care. Millions of people have been forced to rely on insufficient supplies of poor-quality water as water and sewage systems suffer from a lack of maintenance and a shortage of engineers."
Both Amnesty and the Red Cross slam the Iraqi government for failing to grapple with the critical needs of their populations. The two reports cite a litany of concerns, including severe widespread poverty, a lack of food and water, and broken families left to scrounge for whatever they can find to get by. Both reports describe a situation that shows no sign of clear improvement. Many women "have been forced to wear Islamic dress or targeted for abduction, rape or killing. That is not to speak of the more than 2 million parmanent nomads because of Bush's success that McCain promises to build on. The disastrous Iraqi Humanitarian crisis
Almost to prove nothing positive will continue to be accomplished in Iraq and its Government Iraq's main Sunni bloc boycotted a conference Tuesday aimed at reconciling the nation's sectarian groups, a sign of the deep schisms still facing this country. Members of the Sunni Iraqi Accordance Front said they would not participate in the conference until Shiite lawmakers address their political demands. They say Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, has failed to release detainees not charged with specific crimes, has not disbanded Shiite militias and has not sufficiently included Sunni lawmakers in decision-making on security issues."How we can attend a reconciliation meeting?" said Saleem Abdullah, a spokesman for the Sunni front. "There are many points that are still not fulfilled." The U.S. is pressing the Iraqis to achieve national reconciliation, warning that progress toward that goal is necessary to guarantee long-term American support. Sunni's boycott unity
There is no progress needed. Just the excuse for us to stay there until the excuse can be found to attack Iran. That is why Iraq was attacked and it will not be avoided. The hell the world sees in Iraq that Bush and McCain call success will be spread through out the entire middle east creating a permanent nomadic culture before the entire world is involved in this success of Bush's.
