President Now Realizes How Iraqis Feel About the Occupation – Says There is Lack of Progress and Blames Iraqis

alt text

The President keeps telling the American people that his Iraq policy is right on course; but is it? You have to wonder what course the Administration had in mind for Iraq. New reports are indicating that things are getting worse for our soldiers and the Iraqi people. It looks like we saved the Iraqi people from the corrupt power of Saddam so that they could be killed and wounded by secular infighting.

The President terms the Iraq war as “the central front on the war on terror now," and says an early withdraw would hurt the US “credibility”. Many in the Islamic world view the war in Iraq as a success for their cause. The news footage is being used as recruiting films for potential terrorists wanting to do us harm. With each year that passes, there is more footage for this purpose.

Then there is the Prime Minister of Iraq who has said he favors amnesty for those who have killed American Soldiers. Plus he would like to see American soldiers, accused of crimes in Iraq, tried by their justice system. We have to ask ourselves why we are backing this democracy and what are we still doing there?

Now there are reports that the President is blaming Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al_Maliki for the failed mission. Talk about passing-the-buck while saying that his policy is on track. The New York Times reports that the President made it clear in a “private meeting this week that he was concerned about the lack of progress in Iraq and frustrated that the new Iraqi government and the Iraqi people had not shown greater public support for the American mission”

At least the President is beginning to realize his blunder privately. The Times reported that one person at the meeting said “I sensed a frustration (by the President) with the lack of progress on the bigger picture of Iraq generally that we continue to lose a lot of lives, it continues to sap our budget."

It appears the President has lost his sense of empathy and does not understand how a country could be hostile to a foreign occupation. The Times said “the president expressed frustration that Iraqis had not come to appreciate the sacrifices the United States had made in Iraq, and was puzzled as to how a recent anti-American rally in support of Hezbollah in Baghdad could draw such a large crowd.” Comment on this Article on our Forum
