“The war in Iraq “is lost” and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country,” the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.
“I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week,” Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.
So Harry thinks the war is lost. Today anyway. But just three days ago Reid was still talking about giving the troops a “strategy for success” and giving the troops “every penny” they need.
Which is it? Are we going to try to be successful in Iraq or are we just going to give up and come home?
I think the answer for the Democrats is “neither.” They aren’t interested in trying to win the war in Iraq (as evidenced by Harry’s declaration of defeat above) nor are they interested in withdrawing gracefully. Which is why they aren’t framing their withdrawal calls in the context of “we’ve accomplished what we can now it’s time to come home” rhetoric.
The Democrats want nothing less than a full-scale defeat and embarrassment for the President in Iraq, because that’s what will help them the most politically. They want that, and they don’t care how many troops have to die to get it.
Okay, so now he thinks this war is “lost”, and we need to pull the funding and bring the troops home no matter what. Okay, lets say we do this Mr. Harry Reid. Let’s say we do this. Why don’t you go talk to the troops and let them know that you think that this war is lost. Do you think that will go over good to have them hear you, an armchair quarterback in Washington DC telling them (our troops) that they do not know what they are doing and their mission is lost? I have a feeling that you will get an earful of hate from them, because they believe that their mission is winnable, and would be more easy to be won, if men like you would just keep your stupidity out of the war, where you know nothing about what is going on.
All I can say is, when it comes to war, you democrats have no concept of committment, and when the going gets a little tough, you are the first to jump ship and decide that we have to get out because it isn’t possible to win.
Mr. Harry Reid, believe me, our troops believe they can win, as they are the best trained and the best equipped military in the world. The only thing that is making it tough on them is you. You democrats and whimpy Republicans who can’t see the long range of this, only the short range. So, go ahead, pull out the funding….bring our troops home, cause here is where they will be needed when the enemy comes here. But don’t expect them to save your sorry asses, because they won’t care for you idiots. Because you are telling them that they are incompetant to win this war…….just like you did to our brave troops in Vietnam. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You are the scum of the earth. But get ready to fight, because when you pull the troops and bring them home, guess where Al-Qeada is coming? I hope you guessed it, because they are going to be coming here …… mark my words you idiotic politicians. Mark my words.
I have checked out a lot of sites when it comes to our troops, and I found a wonderful video, showing the things our troops are doing, and if you watch this video, it shows that they are actually smiling and looking like they believe in their mission…..too bad that people like Harry Reid don’t feel that they are important enough to support. I know that I support them whole heartedly, and I know that most Americans that I have heard from support them and their mission too.
God bless America
God bless our Troops, and support them and their mission
