    Vice President Joe Biden, Iraq success comment

    Ok, is the guy on medication, the world according to VP Joe Biden is a very whacky one. The Obama administration has been wrong on Iraq on so many different levels. It was VP Joe Biden that wanted to break Iraq up into 3 different pieces & then Senator Obama thought that the seige was wrong & would not wrong.

    Much of the credit for the success of Iraq has to be given to the previous administration & not the watered down version that VP Joe Biden gave, or sometimes, it is better to remain silent

    BAGHDAD — Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule Aug. 31. Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’”


    “I think America wins,” Biden told POLITICO in an end-of-trip interview at the ambassador’s residence in the sprawling U.S. Embassy complex. “I sound corny, but I think America gets credit here in the region. And I think everybody gets credit, from George Bush to [President Obama].

    “I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts ... that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home."

    The chief purpose of Biden’s visit was to prod Iraqi politicians to form a government and end a four-month stalemate that followed parliamentary elections. The vice president said security in the country “doesn’t really relate to whether there’s a government formed or not.”

    You're probably right Moose, but Afghanistan is just about done now....probably to be run by the Taliban again, with influence from Iran, Pakistan, and whoever else... (not the USA)...
