Yes, they are. I'm all for the Democratic front-runner,
but your responses to any Hillary criticism,
including valid criticism like that of giants
like Helen Thomas, is getting silly.
I assume you'll be able to back that up?
We can't keep the suicide bombers out of Baghdad
with 140,000 troops.
We've never tried.
We're fighting a land war in Asia where they
can replenish troops, supplies and suiciders at will.
A ring around Baghdad would stop that.
What are 20,000 going to do except get shot at
and probably get run out of the country completely.
Did you read what I wrote?
Sounds like you read every third paragraph.
Imagine this disaster at the beginning of a Clinton
presidency - trying to evacuate a residual force
stupidly left behind, with thousands of soliders
dying over the course of a few nightmarish days.
What are you talking about?
How are they going to kill even one solider in
the ring around Baghdad?
Since there are no civilians walking in the desert,
the troops are free to blast anything that moves.
There's also no buildings to hide behind or cars
to fill with explosives.
With infra-red and heat-detection technology
- how will they sneak up on us?
Did you think about what you were going to say
before you typed and hit "Send?"
My solution is to get out, period.
Your solution is to give Al Qaeda $300M a day?
I'm glad you're not the president.
It's going to fly apart anyway as soon as there
aren't enough troops to maintain
what little order there is. Letting it fly apart
while you sit in the middle isn't a solution.
Who's sitting in the middle?
Are you crazy?
When you reply to something I've written, you're
supposed to use that as a base.
Making up shit I never said and then asking me
to defend it is not rational behavior.
The army is cracking under the strain of occupation.
Because they're occupying a city of 5M people
who hate them.
That's not the case in my scenario - one you
apparently didn't bother to read
before you made the decision to shoot your mouth
off and call my idea "silly."
When you're down to your last chips, it's time
to fold or go all in.
Is giving Al Qaeda $300M a day a valid option?
