Chuck Schiester Addresses Troops in Anbar: You Failed
as things improve in Iraq little-by-little the rats are getting desperate to the point where sen Schiester is now berating American troops....
[QUOTE]Chuck Schumer, senior Senator from New York and self-described member of the Democratic leadership team in the Senate, really knows how to make friends and influence people.
This morning, in a speech on the Senate floor, he explicitly told the U. S. Marines in Anbar province that they've failed and are a part of the problem, not part of the solution.
[B]Let me be clear. The violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge. The inability of American soldiers to protect these tribes from al-Qaeda said to these tribes, "We have to fight al-Qaeda ourselves."
It wasn't that the surge brought peace here, it was that the warlords took peace here, created a temporary peace here and that was because there was no one else there protecting. [/B] (Emphasis in original.)[/QUOTE]
