UN - freakin' - believable

This is so freakin' unbelievable - turns out Maliki does NOT even want more US troops!!! So let me get this straight - we are sending over 22,000 more soldiers or extending the tours of those already there, against the wishes of nearly 70% of the American people, against the will of the military troops and officers, at a cost of over three billion dollars a week, and without Congressional approval, thereby extending a war that was entered into under false pretenses, blatant lies, and outright deceit, and the puppet Prime Minister al-Maliki that Bush (AKA Comadante KooKoo Bananas, as Steph has so cleverly dubbed Dubya) hand picked and set up to run the country under KooKoo's watchful eye doesn't even agree with his master's proclamation, that what we need are more American troops in Iraq !!! Un - freakin' - be - freakin' - lievable !!! Some of us have got to STOP this IDIOT !!! Somebody STOP him !!! IMPEACH him, just MAKE him GONE !!!

BAGHDAD, Jan. 10 — As President Bush challenges public opinion at home by committing more American troops, he is confronted by a paradox: an Iraqi government that does not really want them.

The Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki has not publicly opposed the American troop increase, but aides to Mr. Maliki have been saying for weeks that the government is wary of the proposal. They fear that an increased American troop presence, particularly in Baghdad, will be accompanied by a more assertive American role that will conflict with the Shiite government’s haste to cut back on American authority and run the war the way it wants. American troops, Shiite leaders say, should stay out of Shiite neighborhoods and focus on fighting Sunni insurgents.

“The government believes there is no need for extra troops from the American side,” Haidar al-Abadi, a Parliament member and close associate of Mr. Maliki, said Wednesday. “The existing troops can do the job.”
