Dean made his comments in an interview on WOAI Radio in San Antonio.
"I've seen this before in my life. This is the same situation we had in Vietnam. Everybody then kept saying, 'just another year, just stay the course, we'll have a victory.' Well, we didn't have a victory, and this policy cost the lives of an additional 25,000 troops because we were too stubborn to recognize what was happening."
Dean says the Democrat position on the war is 'coalescing,' and is likely to include several proposals.
'coalescing,' I love that shit. They have not put forth one single idea on what to do or how to do it till this latest "SURRENDER" Bullshit of the last 2 weeks. WTF is wrong with these people?
"I think we need a strategic redeployment over a period of two years," Dean said. "Bring the 80,000 National Guard and Reserve troops home immediately. They don't belong in a conflict like this anyway.
Excuse the shit out of me, Howard, but they're members of the Friggin' ARMED FORCES! Well, We could have them invade San Francisco I guess, or you know, some of those blue areas.
We ought to have a redeployment to Afghanistan of 20,000 troops, we don't have enough troops to do the job there and its a place where we are welcome. And we need a force in the Middle East, not in Iraq but in a friendly neighboring country to fight (terrorist leader Musab) Zarqawi, who came to Iraq after this invasion.
Name one. The Iraqis want us there. (I'd say Syria, but that would just give one of those pussies a case of the vapors).
Oh BTW, Dickhead, Zarqawi came to Iraq FROM Afghanistan after being wounded and received care and support from Saddam. Saddam, who never had anything to do with terrorists though. But hell, don't let the facts get in the way.
We've got to get the target off the backs of American troops.
Dean didn't specify which country the US forces would deploy to, but he said he would like to see the entire process completed within two years. He said the Democrat proposal is not a 'withdrawal,' but rather a 'strategic redeployment' of U.S. forces.
Oh Lordy, I love that shit. A "Strategic Redeployment". Why don't you just call it what it is - Surrender. Friggin' creep.
"The White House wants us to have a permanent commitment to Iraq. This is an Iraqi problem. President Bush got rid of Saddam Hussein and that was a great thing, but that could have been done in a very different way.
Still waiting to hear just what that way would have been. Another angry letter from the UN Security Council?
But now that we're there we need to figure out how to leave. 80% of Iraqis want us to leave, and it's their country."
Yes, it is their country ....... NOW. Saddam and his two nasty ass sons would still be running people into wood chippers if you and the rest of the Democrats had anything to do with it. I guess we need to look at the Bosnian experience for inspiration of how to properly run an operation like this. 10 years and counting and still not one election or government. Iraq will be having it's third successful election in a few weeks.
Dean also compared the controversy over pre-war intelligence to the Watergate scandal which brought down Richard Nixon's presidency in 1974.
WTF? This is a streach even for Howard. You can't even properly make fun of something that friggin' stupid.
"What we see today is very much like what was going in Watergate," Dean said. "It turns out there is a lot of good evidence that President Bush did not tell the truth when he was asking Congress for the power to go to war. The President said last week that Congress saw the same intelligence that he did in making the decision to go to war, and that is flat out wrong. The President withheld some intelligence from the Senate Intelligence Committee. He withheld the report from the CIA that in fact there was no evidence of weapons of mass destruction (in Iraq), that they did not have a nuclear program. They (the White House) selectively gave intelligence to the United States Senate and the United States Congress and got them to give the go ahead to attack these people."
In an article of falsehoods, that last paragraph is a stunner. I guess Howard believes that idea about "If you repeat a lie often enough....."
What you're seeing is a setup for the Democrats to take credit for when ANY troops come home. Doesn't matter what the time frame or why. These pricks haven't done Jack to advance the cause of anyone but the terrorist in the last two years, but damn it all, when the troops come home .............. it'll have been because of US!
The Iraq and Afganistan campaign have both been hugely successful. FIFTY Million people are working on building their free and Democratic (real democratic, not Howard Dean type democratic) societies, in only three years. The mainstream press has been doing their best to cover for Howard and his treasonous pals thru all of this. And they have been very successful.
Howard and his nasty little friends are more concerned with recovering political power than with living up to the commitments they made to Americans and the world. They wish a defeat on America ........ because it would be good for them.
That's a disgusting thing. Loving political power more than your Country. Time to dust off "The Sedition Act". Abe Lincoln would not have put up with the shit these AssMonkeys fling every day.
