I assume that was a rejected headline for this AP report, instead they went with- Iraqi parliament OKs US troops for 3 more years– yeah they okayed it, real casual like- sure fellas you stick around for a while longer, it’s cool.
But, it gets worse-
The long, costly story of American military involvement in Iraq moved closer to an end Thursday when Iraq’s parliament approved a pact that requires all troops to be out in three years, marking the first clear timetable for a U.S. exit since the 2003 invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein. The vote for the security deal followed months of tough talks between U.S. and Iraqi negotiators that at times seemed on the point of collapse, and then days of hardscrabble dealmaking between ethnic and sectarian groups whose centuries-old rifts had hardened during the first four years of the war.
The war has claimed more than 4,200 American lives and killed a far greater, untold number of Iraqis, consumed huge reserves of money and resources and eroded the global stature of the United States, even among its closest allies.
‘centuries-old rifts‘, get that, these furrners are like that, no mention of the Salvador option eh? But really ‘untold number of Iraqis‘ well yes it is untold by you because you refuse to use the figures from peer reviewed scientific studies that in all other conflicts are accepted methodology, nor the survey results and extrapolation that tell us the untold truth it’s over a million dead. At this point pulling that kind of shit is basically Holocaust denial motherfucker. If you need to vomit read the whole thing. The murders in Mumbai do not go untold, roughly a Predator drone strike level of carnage, thus perception of those dangerous crazy killers marches on, I mean it’s not like say Fallujah, not even comparable, they had air support for that. Thank-fucking-you AP!
