I'm a little concerned over Uganda. President Obama is sending 100 troops to Uganda as "advisors" only. Turns out, there's a lot of oil in Uganda.
I hope it doesn't turn into Iraq, Part Deux.
Maliki himself said in a recent Reuters interview that U.S. troops could only remain in Iraq if they had no immunity from prosecution in Iraqi courts, an absolute nonstarter with the Pentagon. The hundreds of U.S. troops who will be left behind to guard the mammoth American embassy in Baghdad and its consulates in Erbil and Basra -- and to man an embassy office dedicated to weapons sales to the Iraqis -- will have limited diplomatic immunity. Even so, American civilian officials will primarily be guarded by private security contractors, not U.S. troops. The State Department has talked of hiring as many as 8,000 such guards.
Well, that's all folks!
Martin Bashir on MSNBC and his guests ridiculed Romney's statement. Bashir read it and then laughed for a second and said, "What? Is he joking?" And Goldie Taylor said something like, "He obviously doesn't know what he's talking about."
Well, when Bush negotiated the withdrawl time frame, he didn't really mean it, just like he didn't really mean temporary tax cuts to be "temporary".
So it's blame Obama for actually carrying out someone else's promises which were never meant to be carried out!
