George Bush was to meet with Jalal Talabani on Wednesday in Jordan to discuss Iraq’s future. George Bush flew in without any delay and posed for the customary photos with Jordon’s King while awaiting Talabani’s arrival, only he did not show. Instead, Bush was told their two day play date would have to be a one morning meeting. Talabani had other plans.
Meanwhile, in Iran President Ahmadinejad announced that he and Talabani had worked out various deals for Iraqi security. This meeting was held just a few hours before Talabani was to meet Dubya in Jordon to discuss this very subject.
"We discussed in the fields of security, economy, oil and industry. Our agreement was complete," Talabani told reporters. "This visit was 100 percent successful. Its result will appear soon."
But wait, there's more because Wednesday also saw the release of a three page letter from Iranian President Ahmad…whatever. In this letter he recommends we leave Iraq for our own good and concentrate on the Katrina victims. He tells us that Palestine is the central issue that must be dealt with and that Israel are the real terrorists and we are the real supporters of terror in the region.
The man certainly watches a lot of American news, I can tell you that, but he does not understand America or Americans. He thinks he can play on the divisions we foster and nurture amongst ourselves, but he does not realize how we come together when provoked from outside. We may not support Bush, but we will rally behind the President if push comes to shove every time. We are not like the countries he usually deals with that are on the brink of revolution and overthrow. We are America and we eventually do the right thing.
Right now the right thing is for us to leave Iraq. It is time to thank them for the flowers and the candy and come home. We are going to break this country in the name of pride if we keep going this way. They do not want us there and we do not want to be there.
I realize I was saying we needed a draft to deal with Iraq the other day and I still believe we do need a draft, but we also need to now leave Iraq in light of recent events. They have snubbed the nation that saved them for the nation that is killing them. If Iran wants to call it victory then so be it. What other signs are necessary?
