Not So Young But Angry Conservatives Unite

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees! Good Numbers!

Well, per some of the media, not that will EVER get airplay on the Alphabet Soup Networks, but gets some play. We and our allies have killed or captured over 50,000 of the terrorists and mass murderers in Iraq!


Read on: 50,000 Iraqi insurgents dead, caught
By Sharon BehnTHE WASHINGTON TIMESJuly 26, 2005
U.S. and Iraqi forces have killed or arrested more than 50,000 Iraqi insurgents in the past seven months, a former top general who has headed repeated Pentagon assessment missions to Iraq said yesterday. Gen. Jack Keane, a former deputy chief of staff for the Army, also said the United States has a good picture of the leadership of the vicious insurgency but less of an idea about its mid- and lower-level ranks. "We know who they are," he told a lunch gathering sponsored by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He said the eight to 10 leaders "occasionally meet -- we've recorded that -- not just in Iraq, but in Jordan and Syria." Gen. Keane's remarks provided a rare insight into the extent of U.S.-led operations against an insurgency that has been responsible for hundreds of deaths in the past few weeks alone. Pentagon officials previously had been quoted as saying 15,000 to 16,000 Iraqis were in custody in Iraq, but spokesman Lawrence DiRita was unable to comment last night on the 50,000 figure offered by the general. "I would highly doubt that anyone has a good handle on the numbers," he said. "I'm not aware of what General Keane has been told, but I know of no number that has been provided to the secretary, briefed by the commanders, or is being tracked by anyone." Gen. Keane, noting that the numbers probably were higher now, said, "In the past six to seven months, we have killed or captured 50,000 insurgents." The retired general has traveled to Iraq twice in uniform and twice as a civilian to assess progress there for the U.S. military.

Very nice, boys, and girls. Keep up the good work! And tie the noose around these goatbanging sacks of amphibian sh#t!


It's still a rough war, but this is news we needed.

Thanks for nothing ABC, NPR, CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, HN, BBC, ITN, and the other Leftie Propaganda tools.

    No offense but... Do you really believe that the mainstream media has a liberal slant? Or... are you just spreading that propaganda so the the neo-cons can control all the press, like the Nazis did in Germany in the 30's? Tell a lie long enough and people tend to believe it... like the way Cheny insists that Iraq is liked to terriorism and 9/11. He is so good at that one he probably actualy believes it.

    That principal is being used with the term "liberal press". The concept is percieved as true because it is repeated over and over - Either one believes it or is helping spread the illusion.

    So... What's liberal about the press?

    And blah blah blah. Madame Terrorist you can go to Iraq and prove the US wrong or likely get kidnapped and we have to save you.

    The liberal press, nuff said.

    Neocons control the press? That will happen on the 33rd of Neveruary.

    Now now, Nick.

    While I think the original response there was a bit to conspiratorial, lets face it, those numbers are not correct.

    However, I don't believe the left citing it's 5,000 anymore than I believe the right citing its 50,000.

    And to give you a better explanation of why I feel that way, if you read it, the article was very misleading.

    The 50,000 number apparently included people that had been 'captured' and subsequently 'released' over those 7 months.

    So that tells me if an insurgent was found walking the streets, he may have been detained (on the side of the street), stripped of his weaponry, and set free. That would have counted as 1 person. So, the point is there are not really 50,000 people in custody any way you look at it.

    All the same, I think there is no way the press (left or right) can have any accurate numbers on this sort of thing so I figured it's best just not to argue it.
