I mean why even have some foreign satrap talk to congress about what some international force is doing.
What about the americans.
For our slow readers
The senior commander of multinational forces in Iraq warned Congress Tuesday against removing “too many troops too quickly” and refused under stiff questioning to offer even an estimate of American force levels by the end of this year.Would this be a bad time to refer back to the president's comments about not being able to address issues of the 'international forces' in Iraq, because they were not american troops.... Or should we just skip over that with the happy thots that now that america is at peace again, and all is happiness and roses...
Those comments from Gen. David H. Petraeus were met by sharp criticism from a senior Democrat, Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, that the Bush administration had adopted “a war plan with no exit strategy.”

Remind me again, when did you stop remembering?
