Quotes of the Morning: The Best Defense

“Q Doesn't this go against the will of the American people who want to pull out?
MS. PERINO: I think the President has been very clear that they don't want to pull out if it means losing. And the President has said that --
Q How does losing -- losing what?
MS. PERINO: The President has made it clear that the goal is to make sure that we can stabilize Baghdad, especially, so that the politicians in Baghdad can do the work that they need to do in order to reconcile politically and get the economic engine going, so that the security situation can not only stabilize in Baghdad, but then spread throughout the country.”
-Press Gaggle with White House Spokesperson Dana Perino, March 27, 2007

“Translation: We aren’t leaving until security in Iraq can be stabilized. We need the Iraqis to step up and do their part. It will be tough, but the Iraqi police force is ready to do their part to help stamp out civil war in Iraq.”

“Off-duty Shiite policemen enraged by massive bombings in the northern town of Tal Afar went on a revenge spree against Sunni residents there on Wednesday, killing at least 45 men, police and hospital officials said.
The policemen began roaming the town’s Sunni neighborhoods on foot early in the morning, shooting at Sunni residents and homes.
A senior hospital official in Tal Afar said at least 45 men ages 15 to 60 were killed and four others were wounded.”

“See? If they murder all the Sunnis in cold blood there won’t be a civil war. Simple.”

“The attacks follow an upsurge in violence in Baghdad and outside the capital in recent days. U.S. and Iraqi security forces have deployed thousands more soldiers in Baghdad to try to stem a sectarian war threatening to tear the country apart.
In Tuesday’s truck bombings in Tal Afar, one suicide bomber lured victims to buy wheat loaded on his truck in a Shiite neighborhood. A second truck bomb exploded in a used car lot. The attacks killed 63 people and wounded more than 150.
In 2006, President Bush held up Tal Afar as an example of progress being made in Iraq after U.S.-led forces freed it from al-Qaida in an offensive the previous year.”
-MSNBC, March 28, 2007

“Ah yes. Sweet progress.”
