Parkenfarker Group’s foreign policy contributor GK has written a great post surrounding news from Iraq that is sadly lacking in media. I point this post out because how, when, how much and how far we leave Iraq is an election issue for many.

Today we conducted our second Reconciliation Gathering and this was even more successful than the initial one with 42 terrorists coming forward to lay their arms down and join the peace process. We expect this number to continue to grow exponentially as the Government of Iraq informally approves of this path to peace. We will continue to pursue every avenue possible through lethal actions against our enemies or by making offerings for amnesty to those deserving.

Many of you are probably either not believing what we are achieving or are in disbelief because of what the media reports. I cannot tell you the media misleads anyone because we have less of a perspective of the comprehensive situation in Iraq than you probably do. But we can speak for the Area of Operations Summit in which we are responsible.

There are three primary reasons for the success we’ve achieved. First, our lethal targeting has evolved to PhD level effectiveness. Our Soldiers are capturing their intended targets every single day with a level of success no one could have asked for. Secondly, the formation of the Awakening or Concerned Local Citizens within AO Summit has emplaced over 6,000 Iraqi partners in our AO. This required tremendous effort and hard work from your loved ones. But it’s paid off in lives saved, terrorists captured, IED’s discovered and caches turned in on a daily basis. There is literally no where for the enemy to hide right now.

Ron Paul supporters are for a non-intervention policy, George Bush/John McCain supporters such as myself feel that we are generally on the right path, and Barack Obama supporters seem to be gathering behind his “change” plan which if you read the fine print looks a lot like the current George Bush plan. So as you are forming your opinion, please consider News from the Frontlines and the countless others like it available on the internet. And lastly, when you look at a candidate for president, really study the plan they are proposing for Iraq.

  1. If you go to the Convention as a RP delegate, you may be able to thank him yourself.
    Bear in mind,that gk served our country for over 45 years.

    What, no quote???

    Ted wins…

  2. Would you do me a favor and have GK thank the US Army, Navy, and Air Force personnel he sees for making Ron Paul the top recipient for Presidential nominee donations in the 4th quarter. Not only was he the top recipient, but he brought in more than John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama –combined.

  3. I think that the folks in Iraq prefer their current and slightly flawed government over the previous one…
    and I thought that blowback was part of the action in a gas recoil system…

    Methinks a popularity poll for the Iraq government may garner a higher percentage of support from its citizens then a similar poll about the US congress and its citizens!


  5. I’m not saying that it’s a bad idea to arm citizens. In fact I’m all for the right to keep and bear arms. But the difference is our founders enshrined that right in to our Constitution so we COULD revolt and overthrow a corrupt government if necessary. In Iraq we are specifically trying to stop that from happening and trying to prop up a very unpopular government that has no fear of it’s people because it has the American military on its side.

    Our founders made sure blowback was possible if necessary.

    Thomas Jefferson

  6. Hmmm, heaven forbid that citizens be armed. Who in the world came up with that idea?
    I feel blessed to have someone with gk’s many many years foreign policy experience gracing my website. I don’t think I will ever be able to think as clearly…

    In the last 6 months here are some of the improvements in Iraq:

    36,300 new Iraq army soldiers
    2,000 new support troops
    300 new Air Force personel
    1,500 new Iraq Special operation Forces
    30,400 new Iraq police
    7,400 new National police
    1,300 new department of Border Enforcement

    That blowback just might be the development of a new democracy, let’s all hope so!


  8. Great! Mission accomplished. So are we done? Sounds like the Iraqi people are safe and terror-free now. What new mission is keeping us in Iraq?

    In order to achieve this progress did we not arm many local militia groups that until only recently were fighting against us and the Iraqi government?

    Our military can do only so much (and they have achieved much) but unless the Iraqi government is ready to be productive the progress we make is so easily undone. Then the way we were able to make that progress, by arming “Concerned Citizens”, could come back to bite us and/or their government. Say it with me…. “blowback”.
