Obama Dinner to Mark End of Iraq War (Dinner with the king, but no parade)

Win a date with King Barry, the liberator of Iraq. Or more like "you've been ordered to attend."

Seriously, President Obama is going to mark the end of the Iraq war with a "state dinner" for a select, diverse, representative 200 from the services. I wonder if he'll invite his campaign bundler, Saddam-worshiper Jodie Evans of Code Pink?

Barry is sucking up to the military as he stabs them in the back. What a fraud. I imagine the majority of the “Diverse 200” will be the “gay” types.

Well

Ain’t this just special.

I wonder who they would rather have honor them—O-— or the American people.

I am proud that Missouri stepped up first with the parades.

Obama called Iraq a “dumb war.” One of his top fundraisers was a woman who worked with the terrorist insurgency in Iraq that killed thousands of Americans. Now he proposes to show “A Nation’s Gratitude”, as the dinner is being called, to the troops who survived his bundler’s efforts.

He is vile. The 200 “guests” who are being told to show up ought to find other things to do. I would not appear to give this any credibility.

If you are ordered by the CIC, you go. That's what we do. Civilian control of the military. Even if the CIC is an idiot.

Of course, I'll bet I could be in traction in a hospital after I got the orders and before the attending date.

I would get sick and tell them I couldn’t make it. No way I’d attend. Let them proove I wasn’t sick.

The RNC is trying to nominate a degenerate coward from a family of degenerate cowards for POTUS.

The cultist bishop ROMNEY PRATT family haven't served in the military for over 150 years.

Seems like even Barry Husseins muzzie humping whore mom had some relatives who served

Any particularly good reason for that "tradition" to continue?

Civilian control of the military is highly overrated.

I wonder if George W. Bush will get an invitation. It would be appropriate, and at any rate he’d probably make the dinner more fun for the military men there. They and President Bush always seemed to get along well, back in the day.

Thx kristinn.
"Jodie Evans helped rally the Los Angeles progressive community to Obama’s side …along with… the Dreamworks trio of Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen.
Jodie Evans went on to be appointed a fund raiser for Obama."
Sick bunch!

"In September 2008… Jodie Evans met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in New York City."
"In November, weeks after Obama won the presidential election, Jodie Evans and Code Pink traveled to Iran at the personal invitation of Ahmadinejad."
Pukebucket ßîT¢H!
"KTVU has had video of Jodie Evans and Obama together at the fundraiser."

Just the Constitution of the United States. I realize that many on the left, and some here on FR don't think it matters anymore, but I swore an oath to uphold and defend that piece of parchment, and the words on it.

Why don't the soldiers just order carry out from oboma’s kitchen, and find other things to do that day.

And maybe they can also send oboma a group picture with their middle finger in a one finger “salute” as they wave bye-bye to the enemy of the people.

Well, there always has to be food, or ice cream, or vacationing or golf or some such for Obama to attend.

I mean, that’s just a basic requirement. Of his.

It’s amazing to me that the GOP for the first time perhaps since Dewey in 1948 is going to nominate someone who will be seen as the weaker candidate on natl security and foreign policy. who will give the dems the natl security edge.

If you could count on one thing it was that the GOP was the tougher party on natl security.

Romney will be the 1st GOP nominee who hasn’t served since Wilkie I believe. None of his kids or family memebers served and a case can be made that they’ve actively avoided service.

The dems are going to run the guy who got Bin Laden, took care of Khadaffi and Assad(he’ll be gone by the election you watch), and ended 2 wars. We’re going to run a guy with no military exp and no for policy exp and possibly the guy who exudes the least toughness of any candidate since Dukakis.

Great.

Jodie Evans, IIRC, is the person referred to. She is a founder of CodePink, which gave money to the insurgency. It is common knowledge.

Two categories of guests will show:

1. The gay
2. The careerist flag officers

Don’t forget that Major Hassam, the one who shot up Fort Hood, was on Obama’s Presidential Transition Team prior to him going postal. He was promoted soon after, I believe.

As such, no Muslims.

1. They don’t mix well with gays.
2. He’s got the muslim vote, but the gays, well, are both rich and squishy, as it were. Least littlest thing sets them off and the box of treasure closes with a slam.

What were the terms of surrender?

Where was the signing done?

Barry is a lying a%%hole. The war against the Iraqi government ENDED with the fall of Saddam Hussein.

This continued fighting was a terrorist action (not just Iraqi nationals) that followed on the heels of the Iraq War. It’d be like saying the Civil War in the US lasted into the 1960s because of the KKK insurgency that rose up after the war and remained a terrorist force for decades.

On the Whipple.org GenWeb site

(and with FDR)

Alden
Cooke
Pratt
Romney

GW Bush is descended from Francis Cooke and his son John Cooke_1620_Plymouth Colony

For security reasons the Bush, Roosevelt and other families has not added their all of their names to the Whipple.org GenWebSite

Also through his mother Barbara - a Spencer ancestor

(both sides of the Brit Prince’s ancestors - Cooke and Spencer)

as is Teddy Roosevelt (see Eleanor Roosevelt GenWeb page)

There were “native born” ancestors on shore that also met the ship in 1620....

392 long years ago -

25% of Americans have Mayflower ancestry

There are a number of US Presidents related to families and persons on the Whipple.org GenWebSite

General William Whipple:

http://genweb.whipple.org/d0533/I3451.html?General_William_Whipple-signed_the_Declaration_of_Independence_in_New_Hampshire-in_1776

Recorded history of the Whipple family goes back to 1033

“Colt” goes back to 1550 in England

.

Yup -

Humphey Bogart and “Norma Jean” (and many others) are also Mayflower descendants too.....

I mostly just use what they have found or authenticated and archived.

I try to keep my own name and email addresses off of the contributing footnote information of the GenWeb pages -

The Iraq war may be over, but I was on a plane last week, Tuesday, and some U.S. Army soldiers* on the same plane were on a short leave from Iraq... And going back in a few days. Does anyone know how many of our military are still there?

*They were wearing what I believe are their OCP(?) combat uniforms — I think that’s what you call the desert camo fatigues? It’s the same camo clothing you often see on our Army guys when flying on commercial airliners.

To her credit, the head flight attendant personally thanked each one of our guys, and then announced the group at the end of the flight (mentioning that they were going back to Iraq soon) and asked us to thank them, which we did with a 757 full of applause.
