Pelosi’s Disregard for the Administration

By | April 4, 2007

Nancy Pelosi has decided that she must take it upon herself to solve the problems in Iraq. How is she going to do this? You might think it is something brave and courageous but you would be wrong. She has decided to backstab the White House and create discussion with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

A statement put out by her spokesman, Brendan Daly says that she is going “As recommended by the Iraq study group…” the statement then goes on to say that she “intends to discuss a wide range of security issues…” Is it just me or does the fact that Nancy Pelosi is going to Syria since relations deteriorated seem like a security issue. Not only does this create a security issue but it undermines everything the administration is trying to do in the Middle East.

What type of message does this send to our allies? That the U.S. is going to negotiate with known supports of Hezbollah and Hamas. That is not it either; they are also aiding the Sunni insurgency in Western Iraq. This must be very perplexing to the U.S.’s allies in the Middle East, one day we make claims against Syria and the next we are going to talk to them about security?

It is impossible to negotiate with Syria. They do not want the same thing the U.S. wants in Iraq. Maybe Nancy Pelosi should have read all of the Iraq study group report. If she did she would have come across the passages that say “Syria is also playing a counterproductive role.” And the goal for Iraq is to “govern itself, sustain itself, and defend itself.” Maybe she does recognize the difficult issues involved but I highly doubt that she will be able to resolve them.

My suggestion to Speaker Pelosi is drop the act. She has not done what she has been elected for. Since the elections she has not kept any of her promises and now she is trying to save the world. Maybe if she remembered how Senators Kerry and Dodd already tried to challenge Syria to play a more constructive role in the region she would know that she is actually playing a deconstructive role. She needs to try to start a discussion between her party and the Republican Party before she can create discussion with Syria.

Why does Nancy Pelosi think she can solve this herself? Why should she discuss our security measures with Syria? We in the US need to handle our own affairs and follow our Presidents lead. We voted President Bush in as our commander and chief and we should stand behind him. Ms. Pelosi should do the same. It would be more productive to negotiate between the Democratic and Republican parties to help solve the war in Iraq. Having a nephew in Irag on his second tour I feel very strongly about this. We need to protect our troops not discuss our security measures with another country that is not going to help us. Our tax dollars will be spent on a useless role that she wants to play.

Honestly, once President Bush is out of office, this country is going to be sold out to the terriorists, by the democrates. Pelosi being the ring leader. We as Americans need to wake up and realize how dangerous this threat is. On the bright side, this only brings us much closer to the Lord’s return for his children.

I was born but haven’t lived in the States for many years. I want to go back here. The administration could have, should have had a plan PRIOR to the invasion. The invasion was the easy part wasn’t it. It should have been so obvious, I have NEVER been to Iraq but I knew the divisions between the sunni and the (can’t spell it) the other side. Why couldn’t this have been known and prepared for. For all the other good this administration could be remembered for the only thing that will be remembered is the invasion and subsequent problems (perhaps acutally a defeat?).

Ms. Pelosi is a bit player here, history will record the supidity of those who got the USA there in the first place.

You are definitely right that a plan should have been made prior to the invasion but there wasn’t. So now there needs to be a discussion between the parties to come up with a plan. Ms. Pelosi doesn’t need to be in Syria talking with President Assad she needs to be here talking to President Bush.
