Kate, you ignorant slut.


You know, it seems like just yesterday when Crazy-Assed Racist Redneck™ Kate McMillan was getting all wet over the idea of Iraq slowly but surely taking control of its own provinces little by little (and, no, I'm not linking anymore, since Kate is too much of a gutless hack to allow redirects from this site so you'll just have to trust that I don't make shit up but, hey, mistakes happen):

"One by one, the 18 provinces of Iraq are being turned over to the Iraqis"

Michael Yon strikes a familiar theme;

As the British increase their forces in Afghanistan, they are drawing down in Iraq. Although the drawdown in Iraq is based on pragmatism, the enemy apparently is attempting to create the perception of a military rout. So while the British reduce their forces in southern Iraq, they are coming under heavier fire and the enemy makes claims of driving “the occupiers” out.

In reality, the Brits were about to transfer authority over the Maysan Province to the Iraqi government. Thus, the day’s purpose, although seemingly more ceremonial in nature, was to counterpunch in the perception war, by focusing on the progress being made by the Iraqi Security Forces in the region. Some of the biggest battles in Iraq today are being fought not with bombs and bullets, but with cameras and keyboards. For whatever reasons—and there are many—today, when Western media is most needed here, it’s nearly gone.


So, how is all that going, Kate? Are we on schedule? What is the schedule, anyway? Ah, here we go:

President's Address to the Nation
(January 2007)

... To establish its authority, the Iraqi government plans to take responsibility for security in all of Iraq's provinces by November.

Whoopsie. I'm pretty sure that hasn't happened, but I'll bet you won't be hearing anything about that from Kate. After all, she's got thermometers to take pictures of. It's a tough job, but some worthless, neo-con hack has to do it.

Man, she's getting closer and closer to the brink, isn't she? Check out this racist twaddle (reprinting guess who):

My old antagonist "ET" isn't having any of that nonsense.(In the comments.)

must go have a wash now. just read through some of the comments over at kate's pig people jamboree. it's a bigot-o-thon over there. seems to me that the wing town flyers are on a really ugly roll of late. the cognitive dissonance of people howling for blood because someone was howling for blood and then making grand claims of civilization is just, well, disturbing. they just really don't see that they are what they hate.

Uh huh... never heard that one before.

I wouldn't trust Chimpy McChimp to park my car. I sure as hell am not going to trust any assessments of when this war will end by his cadre of simpletons and crooks until our troops are back on American ( and in your case Canadian ) soil.
