Condi Rice threatens Iraqi PM

US: Iraq PM is 'on borrowed time'

Ms Rice was pressed by senators about her confidence in Mr Maliki

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has said that Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki is living "on borrowed time", but that she is confident he can give Iraq security.

Ms Rice was testifying to a Senate hearing about President Bush's new Iraq strategy, announced on Wednesday.

Democrats and some Republicans in Congress have criticised the plan, with one senior Democrat, Senator Joe Biden, calling it a "tragic mistake".

As part of the plan, Mr Bush will boost US troop numbers by more than 20,000.

Later Defence Secretary Robert Gates promised to increase the overall strength of the armed services by recruiting an extra 92,000 troops.

look at that ugly bitch

i thought james brown died.....

No it's not a puppet government. Why would you think that?

"Can't wait till we turn that sand dune into dust."

This war isn't about that. It's about winning hearts and minds and liberating peace loving Iraqis.

Where have you been during Bush's terms?

How is that a threat?

Iraqi government is a puppet government?

How can anyone think that?

;-)

That said, the insurgents sure love to murder civilians. What a mess. Its time the Iraqi government get tough, have some public executions to lighten up the mood.

get tough? like Saddam?

Rice Rejects "Escalation" Language

Calls Bush Iraq Plan "Augmentation"

Yesterday, President Bush announced to the nation that he plans to increase America's presence in Iraq by approximately 22,000 troops, with no timetable for when troop levels would be drawn back down.

Today, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice tried her best to make this escalation plan more palatable to the American public:

"I think that I don't see it, and the president doesn't see it, as an escalation," Rice told an incredulous Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE).

Hagel responded, "Putting 22,000 new troops, more troops in, is not an escalation?"

"I would call it, senator, an augmentation," Rice said.

lol @ the 1984 word games

The gist of what she said is this:

We fucked everything in Iraq, and if this latest augmentation doesn't fix our fuck up, it will be all al-Maliki's fault.

"get tough? like Saddam?"

Not rounding up and murdering 10000s of innocent people.

But going out and hunting down and having public executions of insurgents over tea and crumpets.

"i thought james brown died....."

I literally laughed out loud :)

lmao

what an ugly bitch, ugly on the inside and the outside

I'm going to have an augmentation of my cack

"I knew Condi was Klingon."

LOL thats THE FIRST thing that came to my mind when I saw that pic!

Don't forget that war is peace.

she is one ugly fucking bitch
