Conservative Iraqi Says "We Don't Want To Fix Our Own Problems"

You gotta love this...

Omar at Pajamas Media has been soiling his pants over the Democrats desire to leave Iraq.

I said it before and I say it again; this war must be won. If it is not the world as you in the United States know it today (and as we here in Iraq dream for it to become) will exist only in books of history. The forces of extremism that we confront today are more determined, more resourceful, and more barbaric than the Nazi or the communists of the past. Add to that the weapons they can improvise or acquire through their unholy alliance with rogue regimes, combined with their fluid structure and mobility… well, they can be more deadly than any forces we have faced in the past. Much more.

Yeah, this war is soooo important to the world that the people in Iraq REFUSE to come together and fight for their own smurfin' country. Of course, this is exactly what every conservative blogger believes. And that's why they are typing so hard to win this war! From a Starbucks... two blocks from their house...

In no time al-Qaeda and all similarly extremist factions will start boasting about how America is fleeing Iraq under the heavy blows of the “Mujahideen” planned by OBL himself.

The Democrats just offered al-Qaeda victory on a silver plate. For free. An imaginary victory for sure, for now, but it can still be used by al-Qaeda to promote their ideology of death and attract more recruits.

“America’s will can be broken, America is not invincible,” they will say in a thousand ways. Is this the kind of message you want to send to the enemy?

Ooooh. A guilt trip from an Iraqi. Yeah, I'm so sorry that we haven't spent every forking cent that we have in our Treasury to REBUILD YOUR COUNTRY. I'm so sorry that we haven't sent every healthy teenager in America to your sandbox to fight YOUR WAR.

How many Iraqis have actually tried to stop Al Qaeda? How many Iraqis have tried to track down Osama bin Laden?

Yeah, I hate to break this to you but America isn't invincible. It isn't indestructible. There's only so much we can do to protect ourselves against the treats that exist in the world. Al Qaeda isn't the only enemy that can strike America. Al Qaeda isn't the only group that can attack the ports and refineries that lay within breathing distance of my home. If I have to choose between saving you or protect me, then I'm going to choose "protecting me" every goddamn time.

How many Iraqis want to protect the refineries in Texas City against MS-13? Against Al Qaeda? Against crazy domestic terrorists that placed explosives near a clinic in the city where my sister lives?

Sorry, Omar, but the Iraqis had a chance to capitalize on the money that American tax payers invested in your country. You people squandered it in power struggles between ancient religious fundamentalists. That's your loss and my loss. You know that the surge isn't going to work. You know that the Americans can't stay there for twenty years, fifty years, one hundred years. One day we'll leave, and the people of Iraq will split up and support whatever religious group that makes them feel fancy. And then one day your oil will run dry and we really won't give a damn what you do.

So, why don't you do something to bring your people together instead of writing a blog post about how the Democrats don't care about you. Because Iraq isn't going to come together under General Petraeus. Or Maliki. Or Bush. Or the Republicans. Or the Democrats. Hell, I doubt there's a single damn thing that would unite the Iraqi people. You can delude yourself into thinking that it's the Democrat's fault. Hell, Pajamas Media exists for the sole purpose of assigning blame to the Democrats. But at the end of your day, you'll know that Iraq hardly existed at all except in the mind of Saddam Hussein and the British that drew the map in the first place. Just keep on cashin' those paychecks and pretend that this is the fault of the Democrat party. Keep on pretending that Iraq's problem is the lack of a reality show on NBC that features all your freshly painted schools.
