Peter Defazio QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A timeline for bringing U.S. troops home that is negotiated with the Iraqi government would also boost the Iraqi government's legitimacy and claim to self-rule, and force the Iraqi government to take responsibility for itself and its citizens.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
About 75 percent of the crude oil marketed here is sold off the books, and they are doing trades that would be illegal if it was a regulated market, and of course they do not want to regulate it.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
But they are not going to take on Big Oil because Big Oil is very generous at campaign time, and this is all about the elections. They want to pretend that they are doing something meaningful.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Essentially, when we run a deficit, we are borrowing money to buy things that are made overseas.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Even the majority of the Sunnis have grown tired of foreign terrorists operating in Iraq.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
First off, the crude oil market, unlike every other commodity in America, is virtually unregulated.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
In addition to a timeline, I have proposed that U.S. troops be removed from front line combat positions in Iraqi cities and towns, turning over daily security patrols, interactions with citizens, and any offensive security actions to the Iraqis themselves.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
In crude oil trading, we have seen a 46 percent increase over 1 year in the margins there.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
In recent years, breweries and brew pubs have flourished across the Nation. And, as the Representative from Oregon's fourth district, I have enjoyed seeing the diversity that craft brewery has fueled across the Nation.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
It is also misleading to pretend that if the U.S. leaves that somehow Osama bin Laden will take control of Iraq. There is no chance that the Shias and Kurds, who represent around 80 percent of the population in Iraq, will allow foreign terrorist elements to take over the country.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
It is unfortunate that the Republican leadership continues to prohibit an open and honest debate about the fight against radical Islamic terrorists like al-Qaeda, and the distinct issue of the best strategy for bringing our troops home from Iraq. The American people deserve better.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
It was Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda who attacked the U.S. on September 11, 2001, not Saddam Hussein and Iraq.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Negotiating a timeline and strategy with the Iraqi government could, more than possibly anything else, improve the standing of the Iraqi government in the eyes of its own people, a significant achievement in a region in which the standing of rulers and governments is generally low.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Nor should the U.S. military be forced to remain in Iraq essentially as an army for one side of a civil war.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Of the 55 refineries closed in America in the last 10 years, they were all closed for economic reasons, mostly oil company mergers. Not a single one was closed for environmental purposes or objections.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Of the three bucks you are paying for a gallon of gas, the increase in the margin for the refiners has gone up 255 percent in 1 year; and, guess what, there are no new refineries under construction.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Saddam Hussein was a brutal tyrant. I am glad he is now on trial for crimes against humanity. But, opposition to a dictator is not the measure I use when deciding whether to send our men and women in uniform off to war and possible death.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Second, the resolution contains the blatantly false assertion that negotiating a timeline for bringing U.S. troops home with the Iraqi government undermines U.S. national security. Such a statement shows a misunderstanding of the enemy we face in Iraq.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
Similarly, establishing a firm timeline for bringing our troops home could accelerate the development of Iraqi security forces and deepen their commitment to defending their own country and their own government.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
The pioneering spirit of Oregon lives on with its craft brewers. Oregon continues to enjoy more breweries per capita than any other State in the Nation. Even with Oregon having only 1 percent of the Nation's population, it is home to 7 percent of America's breweries and brew pubs.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
The training and equipping of Iraqi security forces should be accelerated.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
The U.S. cannot force Sunnis, Shias, and Kurds to make peace or to act for the common good. They have been in conflict for 1,400 years.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
The U.S. cannot impose freedom, security, and unity in Iraq by force.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
The U.S. must renounce any U.S. interest in constructing permanent U.S. military bases in Iraq.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
There is a lot of lip service paid in this Congress and downtown at the White House about family values and small business. Who better represents family values and small business than the fishermen and women on the Oregon and California coast.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
There is no free market in oil.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
To the contrary, I believe the U.S. military has already done all that has been asked of them. Saddam Hussein is on trial. The threat from alleged weapons of mass destruction programs in Iraq has been neutralized.
Quotation of Peter Defazio
We are outsourcing all of the United States industrial base to China. That also has national security along with economic implications in the future.
