British Retreat From Iraq Begins


Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News Comment
British Retreat From Iraq Begins
Shiite militia loyal to the firebrand cleric Moqtada al-Sadr extended their control over Basra yesterday, causing the American military more troubles as British troops begin their withdrawal from Iraq. As soon as British forces had handed over the Basra joint police command centre to Iraqi police, Sadr's men moved in, according to reports. The handover was to be the first stage of the British troops' final withdrawal. The United States military is now reported to be planning to send 3000 troops to fill the void left by the British withdrawal. According to witnesses yesterday, Iraqi police left when the Shiite fighters arrived and began emptying the facility. They made off with generators, computers, furniture and even cars, saying it was war booty - and were still in the centre yesterday. The embarrassing episode, which comes as the British in Basra are preparing to move their remaining soldiers to the city airport as part of a planned withdrawal, again highlights the strength of the militia in the city. It further undermines Britain's hopes of a smooth transfer and gives the impression of a rout. Sadr boasted last week that the British had "given up" and were retreating because of the Iraqi resistance.

Ahhh – just like yesterday isn’t it? Remember all those right wing voices calling for us to invade Iraq – ACT and National wanting us to get involved in this pack rape of a nation because our mates were going (never a surprise so many cops become National Party MPs – what is it with men and power and pack rapes?), remember all those talkback callers and bloggers supporting the war – for freedom and democracy (forgetting America had built Saddam up in the first place, forgetting that there was no immediate threat from Saddam, forgetting that there were no nukes, no chemical weapons and no WMDs found) – and now the beginning of the end, as Britain rushes to leave Iraq to desperately shore up Afghanistan which looks very likely to topple over as another defeat we are all left wondering when the last helicopter from Saigon moment will be – and what the legacy the West will leave behind – it is too soon to start writing Footnotes to this tragedy, but let’s start reminding those fuckwits within our own society how dreadfully wrong they were to support this selfish little mis-adventure.

I think it pretty pathetic that the only thing you really care about is proving that those on the right were wrong. To you that's the only thing that matters. Not the fate of the Iraqi or Afghan people who will be living under some kind of totaliterian Islamic fundamentalist regime. Once this is over I wonder how many of those on the left will even bother to care about the these countries. Its kind of sick really

And Anon 10.50am nails very nicely on the head.

Also look forward to the total anarchy that prevails after the withdrawal being the fault of the USA, UK and any right winger that supported the invasion in any way.

Once they start hanging men from cranes for being gay I'm sure that George will be personally responsible in Bo ber and his twisted friends eyes.

I sure Bo bers writing it all up now for later use.

Haha all that bull crap about the USA and the Brits bringing "stability" to Iraq, and all hell breaking loose when they leave Iraq.

All that crap about the US and Brits being there for the love of freedom and democracy for the benefit of Iraq.

And thats taken right out of Bush's propaganda speech.

Wow that a desperate attempt to grab the high ground there Anon - Iraq has been a FUCK UP that has destroyed any credibility we have had with that part of the world and will spawn a thousand more terrorists to attack the West so let's be real fucking clear about who is to blame for this so that when those same fuckwits start to try to build for an attack on Iran or anywhere else America decides threatens it we can gag them right at the start - to sulk and say 'you just wanna be right' is an insult to the 655 000 dead iraqis - how dare you!

Yes, what legiox and other cheerleaders for the slaughter of our fellow human beings forget is that we ( people who opposed the invasion) actually dont like having it proved to us over and over again that you warmongerers are a pack of stupid idiots .............

and now the warmongers/right wingers will try and blame every thing and every body for the debacle and bloody farce that the 'mission accomplished' has turned into.

............ thats the thing with right wingnuts, they can never admit they were wrong

They are the biggest pack of excuse making stuffer uppers that your ever likely to come across.

The warmongers view is that now they are there, they might as well stay there to prevent a "bloodbath" from happening. Never mind the 600 thousand Iraqis already slaughtered because of that disastrous invasion.

So I'm sure you will be very happy to put up the quotes of me 'braying' for 'us' to attack Iraq then won't you Bo ber?

Only problem is you will have to make them up as I have never said anything of the sort.

Geez I'm catching you out in a lot of lies lately Bo ber.

I'm sure that now you'll splutter and bluster some shit about how I metaphorically meant that the Iraq war should happen when I misspelt "I'm sure", as is your normal tactical approach when caught in one of you frequent lies or mis truths.(they do appear to be getting more frequent Bo ber, why is that?)

Anyway go ahead with bathing in the warm blood of a million dead Iraq's to come, sure hope it will be worth a few cheap shots at your political opponents Bo ber.

NZ Native - you are a racist dick so fuck off talking at me OK? Everything you spout is poison,but it is interesting to watch Bo ber try to defend your racist bile because you live on his side of the street as him.

And Bo ber or any anon can you please put up a factual link to the '655,000' dead thing as Amnesty International (you all's favourite little group) officially said that 36,000 were killed there last year (2006) so that must mean that around 619,000 were killed in the 3 years prior. So, a drop from 206,000 per year(619,000/3 years) to just 36,000 per year makes a mockery of all your other statements that the war is lost.
Which is it? Please clarify the situation for us plebs that don't have our fingers on the pulse like you do.

TIA

In reply to my earlier post 10:50 AM

I am not saying that the war hasn't been persecuted in a incompetent manner. I would agree with that proposition.

Iraq was a totaliterian regime in the truest sense held together by force. No regime can be held together by force and this is a historical fact. You can argue this with Paul Buchanan by the way its where I first heard it. Sooner or later it would have fallen apart. The last time anything similar to the Iraq was in Yugoslavia and it took the establishment of of concerntration camps and mass murder and 250,000 dead civilians before cameras before the West grew some balls to do anything.

The majority of people killed in Iraq are being killed in a civil war between different fractions not by the US military. This is not to excuse the US from culpability when it does kill civilians but there is a moral difference between accidentally killing people and driving a petrol tanker truck bomb into a crowded market place to cause maximum casulties.

Finally democracy is possible in Iraq despite what we are seeing at the moment. The evidence is in Kurdistan where there is a democratically elected government with peace and security. Which is what the Shia should have been given in '91 when they were instead handed back to Saddam Hussein to slaugher. This is the reason why we're seeing the current violence in Iraq because nobody trusts the US to stay,fight and protecting them from a bunch of religious psychopathic murders so they have to do it themselves, by killing their neighbours before they kill them.

If you didn't notice Bomber fundamentalist Islam already hated the West. 911 preceded Iraq not the other way round.

Oh you smarmy little clown – let’s see Lego, according to you global warming is a ‘myth’, you are so pro American if you opened your mouth just a little wider you could get Bush’s balls in your mouth as well and you attack everything left wing with a passion last seen during the inquisition – but on the issue of Iraq you were with us leftys hu? Bullshit Lego, you are using weasel words now because you’re trying to distance yourself from ever having supported the invasion of Iraq! Oh and as for the 655 000, do I have to do all the remedial reading for you do I lego? Check out the Lancet figures clown. If my tone is harsh folks, I’m sick of people like Lego and his anonymous chimp trying to defend what America has done, and then have the audacity to take the moral high ground – it sickens me.

Oh and yes Lego, when they start hanging people from cranes I will fucking blame America for that as well – BECAUSE THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN THERE!!!! You reap what you sow.

Lego was the biggest protester against America invading Iraq – don’t make me fucking laugh princess, back you go to Lego land.

Oh and as for 'J' (legos anonymous chimp) - what a fascinating change of tone from you, this is Paul 'liberal western guilt' Paul is it J, well fuck it must be true then mustn't it. Of course there were pressures on Iraq - but do you think any of those have been helped by America? Have they? Oh and who was propping up Saddam so enabling him commit mass murder? Who sold him the helicopters he gassed kurds from? Go defend America in your own time J.

Hey Lego! I dont see you ever gave a fuck about the 650,000 Iraqis killed in the war, nor for the million mostly children killed by the US-led sanctions years earlier.

But I do see you and your sort bathing gleefully in the blood of the million dead Iranian civilians that the USA wants to kill in Iran.

I do find it strange how you warmongers call for war in far away countries but would never actually go and fight in one.

You hate arabs and muslims and are all to ready to sterotype them........... you racist right wing dick :-)

And I cant be bothered looking back through a trolls like yours bitter posts but I'd bet that indeed you did support the illegal invasion.

Perhaps you'd like to show us your posts opposing the war ?????????

 
At 29/8/07 10:35 am, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I take your point regarding who sold Iraq the capability for mass murder. But you did forget to mention that the two countries responsible for selling this capability, Germany and France, were against the war from the start. What is known was the Hussein had set up a elaborate and covert arms procurement system to cover up the fact that he was building a WMD program.

The US is responsible for failing to provide security to the Iraqi people. But that still does not make them culpable for mass murder and for the acts of terrorists targeting civilians. If I took your logic then the NZ police are responsible for murder since they are in charge of security in NZ and since they fail to prevent them then they must be culpable. Your logic fails.

You have still not disproved my points regarding totaliterian states nor Yugoslavia. Banal comments like that do not make for a robust rebutal.

PS I guess you were there when George Galloway gave a speech on Iraq. I loved it when he said that George Bush murdered more people than Stalin and Hitler and no one raised an objection. This is what the anti-war crowd traffic in: hysteric sloganering without a pause for any kind of self-reflection

By the way would you be able to provide a link to an article that you wrote pre Iraqi invasion which demonstrates that you have given a shit about the Iraqi people so I cede the moral highground

So no quotes of mine then Bo ber?

No, didn't think so.

Just because I disagree with you on most things that makes me a a supporter of the actions of the USA?

I've never said that, so you are talking bullshit.

And speaking of bullshit.

So Amnesty got it wrong then huh?

Gee thats funny.

In fact, in your own words Bo ber

Under head line -

Iraqi bomb death toll reaches 250 - posted on 16/08/07

you said, and I do quote directly -

"this takes the death toll anywhere between 50 000 and 655 000"

So you were full of it then or you're full of it now , which is it?, I mean its only a couple of weeks ago.

The hanging from cranes - thats an American thing then aye?

And you call me a clown.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa.

Mr Native, FO you dum stick. When have I ever expressed hate for 'arabs and muslims'?

Two things I do hate are people that think they have the right to walk into a crowded market place and blow themselves up taking innocent civilians with them(they can be any creed or religion)and the other thing is racist fucken dicks like you. Your comments on here will have crawled by google by now so are out there in the interwebs forever, archived for anyone that cares to see what a disgusting individual you are.

AB/Lego this is desperate even for you - you are so far up America's arse you seem to forget that you've defended them a thousand times and I don't think anyone here believes for one second that you didn't support America going into Iraq, and that you are trying to weasel out of that support now is intellectually embarrassing - ALMOST as, embarrassing as your attempt to use Amnesty International figures in this way – I’ve told you where to look for those figures AB/Lego – try the Lancet where the figures were first published.

And YES the cranes WILL be America’s fault because THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE FUCKING BEEN THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!

Enough troll feeding, you are as rational as Adviticous Diablo

PS – I still find it fascinating that even when on holiday you rush back to your computer to post on a blog you hate so much on the pretense that you are keeping us evil lying lefties in line – I think your obsessive needs should be met on some sadomasochist site where they charge you by the minute. Oh and don’t give me the ‘I posted here when Tim ran it’ Tims been in prison for over a year now, that excuse is thin ice (not the global warming kinda ice either, as according to you that’s a myth as well)

Back to Lego land you go.

So are you denying that in your post on the 16th August 2007 you said -

"this takes the death toll anywhere between 50 000 and 655 000"

then Bo ber?

Just 2 weeks ago Bo ber

You appear not to address that in your comment above. I can't think why.

"you've defended them a thousand times"

A Thousand? More hyperbole?

Yes, I think so.

"I still find it fascinating that even when on holiday you rush back to your computer to post on a blog you hate so much"

And as I have said Bo ber, which you seem to willfully ignore(I can see your technology comprehension levels are a little lacking) -
wi fi and a laptop - I can be at the zoo or waiting in the car at TJ Maxx over here and still rip your patsy stories to shreds.

I just want to know why 2 weeks ago it was '50,000 - 655,000' and this week it's 655,000 no compromise.

Think you just got pwned Bo ber and it was easy. :)

p.s - your standard leftie deewbhead manual should be telling you its time to re censor comments again but you know where that leads

Oh my God, is your point that I said 50 000-655 000 and because I said 655 000 you are jumping up and down - that is so fucking weak Lego even for you - and the fact you boast about wifi so you can stay in touch on a site you hate every where you go is creepy.

Get a life bro

Oh and I think you meant to say dweebhead not deewbhead - if you are going to insult someone, it makes you look like a cock if you can't get the spelling right.

And Lego I only censor you when you get angry and start bringing in peoples mothers as an insult, you know that but always pretend it's because you're so 'dangerous' to lefty ideas I have to censor you, which is a joke, I censor you when you get bestial and punch below the belt, real simple. Your ravings and moon barkings have little to do with debate and are always personal insults directed at me - boring and tedious insults. You need to sell this to yourself as setting lefties stright, go right ahead, it only shows how desperate you are to be noticed.

Again Lego, if I was on holiday, I'd never think of you or your blogsite once.

Ever.

Wouldn't cross my mind once.

There would be no 'Oh, I must rush obsessively to Legos site and attack him to keep the right wing in line'.

If I didn't know better I'd swear you had a crush on me.

Back to lego land you go.

......... things like invading a country on false reasons and killing a lot of innocent civilians would seem to be a natural spur for such things, or being stuck in a refugee camp for 30 years.

At least you signed of as warmonger which is probably the only accurate thing in your post ............ I'd bet my balls you supported the war like a good muppet.

And as for my little anony mouse parasite lawyer in training, I see your still doing your finger pointing and making things up ............ shrills like you should aim for being a legal secretary .............. or maybe you might just squeek in as a prosecutor in the graham capill mould.

You've said today -

"Oh and as for the 655 000, do I have to do all the remedial reading for you do I lego? Check out the Lancet figures clown"

I just want to know why 2 weeks ago you said 50,000 - 655,000 -obviously a little hard for you to understand.

wanna quote Bo ber?

Here go -

“Members and front organizations must continually embarrass, discredit and degrade our critics. When obstructionists become too irritating, label them as fascist, or Nazi, or liars…. The association will, after enough repetition, become “fact” in the public mind.”

–Communist Party, Moscow Central Committee 1943

could probaly update that to include - being an obsessive commentator.

You're getting boring with the same old shit. You can't even argue a point and you seem to get confused rather easily. If you want to be taken seriously then you'll have to try harder than this.

It's actually quite easy to check the things I write about from independent sources but your reliance on unsubstantiated rhetoric as a rebuttal makes you look like the retard that you are.
Why don't you actually come back with something interesting to say.

Pedophile lawyer eh. Did you by any chance go to a catholic school? It appears you have some trust issues with authority figures. Really there is no need to project your obviously traumatic experiences on others.

Ah such witty comeback. It has me shaking in my shoes. Believe it not some of us have jobs and plan for the future instead of waiting for a handout and posting angry pathetic messages blaming the jews, rich white old men or some other convenient scapegoat instead of our own personal failings.
Still, I'm glad you learned your lesson about the evils of anti semitism even though it took repeated bitchslappings. Make sure you keep it that way.

By the way Bomber I'm still waiting for that link to an article to prove that you actually gave a shit about Iraq instead of jumping on the peacenik bandwagon. For some reason I don't think it will be forthcoming

If you believe the Bush propaganda the figure killed in Iraq is about 50,000.

If you believe a third party such as the Lancet, the figure is over 600,000.

I believe 50,000 dead civilians to be abhorrent, but 600,000 closer to the truth.
