Two things before we go any further: Who of you ever heard of Obama till about 6 months ago? This colorful social raiser (only in America!) is now the darling of the left, the nutroots & the moonbats combined.
For the blacks he is not black enough, they prefer Hillary Clinton. The whites don’t trust him. He’s got some wealthy sponsors, (who are they? Follow the money!) but my guess is that we won’t hear or see much of him after the 2008 election is over.
Just now he admitted that he is an apostate of Islam, what you make of that?
Charles from LGF asks the question:
…a rather uncomfortable question for a man who wants to be the commander in chief of the United States. The penalty under well-established shari’a law for apostasyâ€”leaving Islamâ€”is death. How would the world’s 249 gazillion Muslims react to having an American president who is also a Muslim apostate?
Right, buddy: All bases must be covered!
Obama has already declared that he wants the troops out of Iraq. Let them have their civil war which they so richly deserve! I have no argument with that: I have always maintained that the mission is, in fact accomplished, that the mission was already accomplished with the invasion of Iraq, and after Saddam was captured we should have pulled out. Whose idea was it to get involved in ‘nation-building?’
Absolute folly, that the US should be ‘nationbuilding’- for Arabs! But now the goalposts have been changed and the ‘Iraqi people’-, no, make that the ‘Muslim World’- (thank God the world is not Muslim!) would see a premature pullout as a defeat for the US.
So now it comes:
The Howard-Obama slug-fest
By Andrew Bolt â€“ Monday, February 12, 07
Young Senator Barack Obama, running for the Democrat presidential nomination, demands US combat troops be pulled out of Iraq by March next year.
He wouldn’t have expected to be soon brawling over his plan with a mild-manner senior citizen from the other side of the world.
John Howard on Barack Obama:
I think that will just encourage those who want to completely destabilize and destroy Iraq, and create chaos and a victory for the terrorists to hang on and hope for an Obama victory.. If I were running al-Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008 and be praying as many times as possible for a victory not only for Obama but also for the Democrats.
Australian troops in Iraq
Barack Obama on John Howard:
I would also note that we have close to 140,000 troops in Iraq, and my understanding is Mr Howard has deployed 1400, so if he is … to fight the good fight in Iraq, I would suggest that he calls up another 20,000 Australians and sends them to Iraq.
(Andrew Bolts opinion: Ouch. I call that a draw so far. Although on substance I’d say it will be worse for us if Obama is wrong than it will if Howard is)
*Two things wrong here: Obama is mouthing off before he even gets his feet on a soapbox. He snaps and admonishes at a senior ally, the most devoted loyal ally the US has, before he even gets a chance to meet the ‘interns’ and to chew on those juicy steaks in the white house.
Australia with a population of 20 million people has 1400 troops in Iraq.
That makes 00.7 % –
America has 300 million people and sends 140.000 troops, which makes 00.46%-
Keep things in perspective, Mr. Wunderkind. Do you know where Australia is on the map?
