Thanks for Nothing, King Abdullah; Egypt Returns Iraqis, We Take in Thousands

By Debbie Schlussel
Yesterday, King Abdullah of Jordan was in Iraq.
He was the very first–and only–Arab head of state since America went to war with Iraq in 2003. That’s notable because as of yesterday, 4,127 U.S. soldiers and 11 Defense Department civilians died in Iraq and exactly zero Jordanian or other non-Iraqi Arab soldiers–unless you count the many insurgent terrorists that came from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, etc. to attack our troops and help contribute to the 4,127 figure.
We gave the blood. They–including King Abdullah–gave nothing. Now, that things are supposed to be “better” there, suddenly the Arab leaders want to take advantage of what we achieved there. Where the heck were Abdullah and his fellow fat Muslim Arab dictators for the last five years? Other than at the Bush ranch and in their own palaces, nowhere to be seen.


King Abdullah, Iraqi “Refugees” Salute American Sacrifices in Iraq

So, thanks for nothing, King Abdullah. Thanks, but no thanks. And in this case (and many other cases concerning our “moderate” “ally” Jordan), better never than late.
On another note regarding our “moderate” Arab “allies” and their support for Iraq, Egypt is sending hundreds of Iraqis back home to Iraq, and accelerating their return. According to the International Organization of Migration, 13,000 Iraqis have returned to the country from neighboring Arab nations. Iraqi leaders gave them free flights home.
But where’s the plane home from the U.S.? Please tell me why if these thousands of Iraqis in Arab lands can return to their country, why must we take in 60,000 of them and make them U.S. citizens, as I’ve noted? Please tell me why.
Again, thanks but no thanks, and better NEVER than late.

Exactly. Then to add insult to 60 thousand injuries, the new Iraqi government awards China a huge oil exploration contract. Oh, did I forget to mention, among other things, the hate America idiots claimed the U.S. invaded Iraq for their oil!

Old news Debbie. The US has always been a protector to the innocent and we get no help and no respect from anybody. It was like that when I was stationed in Korea a few years ago. The South Koreans hated us and wanted us to leave but as soon as the midget up north rattled his sword, they loved us and wanted us to stay and protect them. To quote Edward Longshanks from Braveheart, “My scouts tell me their archers are miles away and no threat to us. Arrows cost money. Use up the Irish. The dead cost nothing.”
