Pardon my French

A Petition for an Iraqi Peace Process. Dipshits.

Their "outline" :

First, as a confidence-building measure, the US government must declare that it has no interest in permanent military bases or the control of Iraqi oil or other resources.

We don't control Iraq's resources now. Only the leftist moonbats- an Al Queda - believe that. As for permanent military bases - why aren't they complaining about bases in Germany or Japan?

Second, as a further confidence-building measure, the US government must set goals for ending the occupation and bringing all our troops home - in months, not years, beginning with an initial withdrawal of troops by the end of this year.

What's with all this "confidence-building" crap? I tell you what would build their confidence- STABILITY. And, that will come when their own troops are trained, and foreign insurgents (I mean "minutemen") are eliminated.

Third, the US government must request that the United Nations monitor the process of military disengagement and de-escalation, and organize a peaceful reconstruction effort. The US must accept its obligation to fairly compensate Iraqis for damages and assist Iraqi reconstruction while not imposing privatization schemes and while ending the dominance of US contractors in the bidding process.

We are the United Nations security forces. To agree to this means our boys are still there, just under the auspices of the UN. And you know how many Americans feel about the UN...As for damages - someone remind me - did Iraq compensate Iran for damages? Did they compensate Kuwait? Did they compensate the Kurds? Did they compensate their OWN people? We have compensated Iraq by eliminating a Mass Murderer. By building schools and hospitals. Of course, you might not have heard about any of this stuff, since everyday the newspapers limit their coverage to a body count and IED explosions.

Fourth, the US government should appoint a peace envoy independent of the occupation authorities to underscore its commitment to an entirely different mission, that of a peace process ending the occupation and returning our soldiers home.

No comment. Except this ---@@. Lemme guess- you Want Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter to head this 'Peace Envoy'?

Fifth, the peace envoy should encourage and cooperate in talks with Iraqi groups opposed to the occupation, including insurgents, to explore a political settlement. The settlement must include representation of opposition forces and parties, and power-sharing as a core principle of governance and economic and energy development. We believe such an initiative will reduce though not eliminate violence, by lessening any rationale for jihadist or sectarian conflict.

Well, seeing as though this is already occurring (except the "including insurgents" BS), I have to wonder if these nimnuts even read the news. Hello - they are drafting a Constitution. What part of "political settlement" is not included in a Constitution?
