The Official 11 Point Plan for Victory in Iraq

February 26, 2007

I saw this on Digg, tell me what you think (from Pat Dollard)

EXCLUSIVE: THE FULL 11 POINT PLAN FOR VICTORY IN IRAQ by General David Petraeus Commander of all U.S. Forces in Iraq, Admiral William Fallon, Centcom Commander, Middle East, and Ryan C. Crocker, U.S. Ambassador to Iraq.

1. U.S. troops are to be gradually pulled back from all Iraqi cities and towns and sent to seal the borders with Iran and Syria. The real insurgency is not indigenous to Iraq, but being pumped in through Iran and Syria.

2. Ramadi and Baghdad will be two of a handful of initial principle exceptions, as major U.S supported military engagements are in process in Baghadad and gearing up in Ramadi.

3. Iraqi Military Units meeting standards of “militia cleansing” ( ie militia free ) and ideologically dedicated to a United Iraq will be upgraded to Elite Status and given full operational autonomy.

4. Generals and leaders from Saddam’s Baath party, many out of work for three years, will be encouraged to rejoin the military enticed with high-pay and bonuses designed to serve as retrograde pay for their time off. The Baath party generals will be key to victory in Al Anbar Province, as I will lay out later today or tomorrow.

5. The state of security in each Area of Operations will dictate the tempo of U.S. pullback from towns to the Iranian and Syrian borders.

Glenn Greenwald investigates “The Victory Caucus”

February 26, 2007
  • While Tucker Carlson did a puff piece story on “The Victory Caucus”, he didn’t investigate very deeply. He didn’t note the tiny size of the Caucus or its sudden growth, or the fact that the Caucus is not doing anything to aid the troops militarily or with their provisions, but is solely concerned with promoting the administration’s efforts….Salon.com

It was interesting to see Greenwald’s analysis on this, since I just blogged about the way the Victory Caucus was being hyped last week.  In fact, the day I posted about it (Feb. 16th) was the day that their hits peaked.  So, I guess what I’m saying here is that it appears that the “Victory” people embarked on an aggressive media blitz that even I got sucked into, then hoped that the pom-poms would be enough to keep people there.  Too bad.

Righty Blog Of The Week: Liberals Must Die

February 26, 2007

I saw this pop up in the Digg ‘offbeat’ section.  Liberals, enter this site at your own risk:

Liberals Must Die

The tag section alone has a dozen laughs in it.  In fact, when you see a tag like  Muslum Terrerists (21), you gotta wonder if the thing is for real or just a Colbert-like parody.  I guess it doesn’t matter.  Enjoy!
