FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Andy Martin says the Republican presidential candidates’ criticism of President Obama’s December 31st withdrawal from
Martin points out we are only leaving Iraq physically; we are still there, over the horizon
Martin says a “foreign policy” conducted by any of his primary opponents would destroy what remains of US power
Let me give you a very serious example of my opponents’ total incompetence.
Last week Obama announced we were leaving
There were howls of protest from my Republican presidential opponents. These candidates are foreign policy morons (take a look at the first link below; there is an endless stream of similar stories available).
Mitt Romney was quoted by the Manchester Union leader as follows (see link below): “He criticized the President for removing all American troops from
In the New York Times Romney questoned whether the withdrawal is the result of “sheer ineptitude.” (link below) Actually, no. Obama has just been enforcing an agreement signed between Iraq and the United States by President George W. Bush.
The presidential candidate foreign policy morons seem to suggest we just could have “stayed” in Iraq past Decmeber 31st. How so? Was a small force of 50,000 soldiers going to “occupy” Iraq? Were we going to re-invade? Bomb the country again? How would we stay beyond December 31st if the Iraqis didn’t want us to stay? Bribe the Iraqis with more American dollars borrowed from China? Romney and Company have no suggestions.
Let me give you some background on my foreign policy credentials, and also explain why my opponents cannot be trusted to sit in the Oval Office and conduct foreign policy.
Although I never served on active duty in the military I have been present in all of our significant military conflicts since the 1960’s:
I grew up studying foreign policy and politics. One of our closest family friends was a refugee from Nazi Germany. Dr. Sigmund Neumann fled
In 1999 I warned Republicans that George W. Bush was obsessed with starting a war with
I will repeat what I have always said. George W. Bush was one of the most decent men to ever serve in the White House. He is a decent human being. But Bush admitted he knew nothing about foreign affairs and his foreign policies were a long-term disaster. Bush was betrayed by the “neocons” around him (now there’s a new vocabulary word for Herman Cain).
In 2002 and 2003 I marched against Bush’s planned invasion of
In preparing these remarks I found one of my own columns on the Internet. In 2004 I predicted the insurgency in Iraq (calling it the “Third Iraq war”)(link below) at a time when no one in the Green Zone had any idea what was happening beyond the security perimeter. The remarks are still posted on, of all places, a socialist web site. Later I predicted the “surge” would defeat the insurgency. Bottom line: I have almost a 100% accurate track record of predicting our successes and our failings in
Do Romney, Bachmann, Huntsman and our Johnny-Come-Lately foreign policy expert Herman Cain all know better than I do? Don’t bet your life. These guys are foreign policy jokers. But they are the ones that are quoted by the liberal media.
None of the other candidates will tell you how they planned to “stay” in
Barack Obama was and is enforcing George Bush’s foreign policy. How can the other candidates attack Obama for implementing Bush’s policy? I guess it just proves my point. They don’t know what they are saying, or maybe they have such contempt for the intelligence of the Republican “base” they will say anything for votes.
Should we have stayed in
I’ll go one step further with a 2012 prediction: Obama is not yet out of the woods in
You will note that I correctly analyzed the evil impact of Moqtada al-Sadr in 2004 (see the link below from the “socialists”). Al-Sadr is back in power in
The Iraqi government is beholden to al-Sadr. In order for a deal to “stay” to have worked, and for our agreement to withdraw to be amended, the Iraqis had to want us to stay more than we wanted to leave. They didn’t. Obama played the only “hand” he had. (Trivia: Obama was a pretty good poker player in
The American people are sick and tired of Republican foreign policies that jeopardize our economy and kill our military for no discernable benefit. (Here you can see why I occasionally have good things to say about Ron Paul; Ron and I are close to agreeing on this one.) President Bush accomplished exactly what I predicted he would: by attacking
Here we are a decade later and Republican presidential candidates are still proposing and promising the same nonsense, proposing to endanger our national security, and promising to adopt economic policies that would destroy what remains of our influence and power in the world.
Finally, we are not “leaving”
Hasta la vista,
Governor Haley Barbour of
If you are a Republican reading this, you probably have not thought of voting for me or supporting my campaign. Maybe you should think again. I have a proven track record of avoiding foreign policy disasters; I am the only Republican presidential candidate with the experience to keep us out of wars and to rebuild our military might to the same level where it stood when President Ronald Reagan left the White House.
If you don’t vote for me you will get what you deserve: a Republican Party led by foreign policy idiots who could well fumble away the White House in 2012. It’s your call.
