Iraq war: No Democrat cared about the 18 benchmarks until they could be used to lose

Remember the 18 benchmarks for progress in the Iraq war? Probably not.

Not one major newspaper published the full list of 18 benchmarks when Sen. John Warner made a big point of inserting them into the Iraq war supplemental funding bill in May.

The Democratic leaders weren’t interested in the benchmarks either. They were focused on losing the war to the fascists, not on setting guideposts for democracy’s success.

Excuse for surrender. But now that it’s clear those 18 benchmarks can’t be met by September, the Democrats will claim they’ve always cared. They will cite the failure, not as reason to press Iraq’s Shiites and Sunnis to work more closely together, but as an excuse to invite them to slaughter each other forever.

The bloody bombings we see in Iraq today are nothing compared to what the pseudo-liberals of the Democratic Party are calling for in Iraq: a genocidal Killing Fields followed by fascism’s endless cycle of repression and war.

The 18 benchmarks were lovely guidelines. They weren’t the 18 Commandments. Just as you can’t set a date for winning a war, you can’t set a deadline for turning hatred into love.

Refocus on victory. It’s time to refocus on the important benchmarks in that legislation and see that they are met. Build up that Iraqi army. Encourage political reconciliation.

For the only chance of a lasting peace, democracy must win in Iraq.

USA TODAY/Gallup Poll

Still, 55% say Congress should wait to develop a new policy on Iraq until Gen. David Petraeus, commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, delivers a promised assessment in September; 40% say Congress should act now.

I just now saw a clip from today where Harry Reid is saying there is no peogress in Iraq as the surge has now been going on for six months.

I am afraid I'm going to have to ask my Senator to introduce impeachment proceedings into that Senate against Harry Reid for being a criminal liar and not honestly representing my government.

To underline what Harry "the cadaver" Reid said today, Carl Levin just said that the surge is now complete, as he was trying to point out how futile the efforts of Bush's Iraq policy are.

Based on how Democrats evaluate time and events, I guess I can safely say that the Congress, that has been lead by the majority Democrats elected in last November's election, has done nothing for two years now (2006 and 2007).

And in this age of political correctness, which end of the congressional turd is the clean one?

That's quite an image.
