Guess these Quotes!

"Republicans in Congress who do not want to be quoted tell me that the State Department under Condoleezza Rice is a mess. This comes at a time when the U.S. global position is precarious. While attention is focused on Iraq, American diplomacy is being tested worldwide -- in Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Korea and Sudan. The judgment by thoughtful Republicans is that Rice has failed to manage that endeavor."
Robert D. Novak, from: Washington Post, The Mess at State, Thursday, January 11, 2007

"All I want to say is, right now American soldiers are dying in a Sunni-Shiite civil war, a sectarian civil war -- that’s a fact, based on my personal observations. Soldiers’ hands are tied to defend themselves. Every time a soldier fires his weapon, he has to sign paperwork making sure it was justified. I want to stress that soldiers want to go on the offensive, but everything we’re doing here is on the defense. And it’s a belief of the soldiers I’ve talked to that any troop increase over here, it’s just going to be more sitting ducks, more targets."
Sargeant Ronn Cantu, author of One Soldier's Musings: The Death of a Pro-War Conservative -or- The Day I got Away with Murder

"The increasing prices in the economy that’s collapsing stink and the Iraqi government policy stinks, even the American policy, that so-called surge in Iraq, stinks, too, because, as you know and Iraqis know and the others, that the occupation is a form of war. So any escalation in this type of war, the resistance is going to escalate, too."
Sami Rasouli, Iraqi American currently living in Najaf.

"Secretary Rice, to be very blunt, I cannot in good conscience support the president's approach."
Senator Joe Biden, (D - Dela.)

"After six years of this, I think we all know that he who frames the debate and chooses the vocabulary wins from the beginning. Let's be sure to not accept the White House framing, no matter how wimped out the MSM is."
Nicole Belle, a blogger at (as Quoted in the LATimes, Jan. 10, 2007)
