Petraeus: Al Qaida trying to 'come back in'

Just a note to Obama, looks like you would have to do some thing in Iraq, if you were elected. You would not be able to surrender now would you? Provided of course, any thing you have said trying to get the nomination has any basis in truth.

"Al Qaida is trying to come back in," U.S. military commander Gen. David Petraeus said. "We can feel it and see it, and what we're trying to do is rip out any roots before they can get deeply into the ground."
Al Qaida has even resorted to using women as homicide bombers. I wonder where NOW is on this?

The general said Al Qaida was turning to women suicide bombers because the insurgency network failed to drive car bombs through military and police checkpoints.

"Al Qaida is incredibly resilient, and they are receiving people and supplies through Syria — although numbers through Syria are down as much as 50 percent," Petraeus said.

The minute we prematurely remove our troops from Iraq, Qaida will go on a rampage. All of the efforts and sacrafices our troops had made will have been wasted. - Sailor

Poor Obama!

Looks like it is time for the old Sailor to get back to blogging. Seems Obama is whining about tough questions. About damned time some one started asking them!

"Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions," Obama, looking surprised, told shouting reporters as he fled the room. "We're running late."

The Clinton campaign has long complained that Obama gets soft treatment from the press corps. But Monday's exchange was no pillow fight."

I wonder what he will do when he has to deal with that crazy Iranian or the nut case in Venezuela. I have long maintained that Barrack is not ready for prime time, and now he is proving me right.

You can read some more of his whining right here. - Sailor
