Conservatives: Exactly what is your plan in Iraq?

Posted on April 27th, 2010 by admin1 in republican advertising strategy

Okay, I’m tired of hearing the Republican party accuse the Democrats of not having a plan in Iraq. I am perfectly aware that the Democrats do not really have a war plan.

But what is the Republican party’s plan for Iraq? (Or for Afghanistan for that matter)

(The only real possiblity in the Republican party is McCain. McCain might increase commitment to Iraq considerably, but he has not publicly stated his long term strategies in depth and great detail)}

The Iraq war has not proven the cake-walk that neocons like Richard Perle advertised it to be. (Of course, had they studied history, perhaps they would have realized the difficulties in long term occupation and suppressing rebellion).

So what is the plan?

The surge is a tactical victory, not a strategic victory. Also, the Taliban is gaining strength in Afghanistan once more.

It seems to me than no politician has a real plan for Iraq.

Perhaps that is why the US is in the quagmire in the first place.
I’m looking for a real strategy, not just attacks at me.

I don’t have a plan for Iraq. If I did, I would run for office. That’s the problem with forums like these. We have thousands and thousands of people here who aren’t qualified to run for local dog-catcher, but yet think they’re smart enough to run the country.

What it boils down to is opinions. And opinions are like a ss-holes. Everyone has one and most everyone’s stinks.

    Here’s my plan, which will never come to fruition:

    Withdraw everyone tomorrow. After all hell breaks loose, we offer a quick "told you so," to the apologists, and then bomb the living hell out of the region, after extracting the good guys. Then we begin construction on America 2.References :

    I suppose we could cut and run. With all of our military back here at home, we could just use liberals as human shields against terrorists and fight that way for awhile.References :

    I cant speak for those running the country on the Republican side….
    but as a Conservative…. I can say that I hope our strategy would be to stabilize that nation militarily, economically, and establish a strong government long enough for all factions to come together to run things on their own.
    And then get out!
    And the sooner the better as far as Im concerned.References :

    The problem withe their plan if they have one, is that I don’t think they have a strategic plan for the region. Its basically just go over there and kill Arabs.References :

    It starts with a little bombing.then we cakewalk right in,kill otay and whodey,string that SOB Saddam up,turn a few corners surge through the land,pay some terrorists off and kiss a little keister. That should bring you up to speed.References :

    Wars are almost always long and drawn out, especially
    when you can’t tell who the enemy is as they are not
    armies and wear uniforms or camoflauge. Anyway, the
    Conservative plan was to "go after the terrorists". But,
    it was harder than they thought as we are not only fighting
    terrorists, but small children whom they teach to shoot, and
    people who will blow themselves up in a crowded market,
    temple, school, library, or in the street. I don’t recall us ever
    having that kind of enemy before. So, we struggle on to
    wipe them out when we can, to teach the citizens how to
    fight for themselves, and once they are broken down, then
    we need to help rebuild the country where things have been
    destroyed from the war.This cannot be done overnight and
    may take some years. Why don’t you complain about US
    still being in Germany and other former war zones which
    has been over for many many years. Why are we still
    there with our planes, army, and guns? Shouldn’t we bring
    home all the service man (and women) where there is no
    more any chance of war recurring? This is what I don’t
    understand.References :
