We now know, thanks to Howard Fineman, that Rep. John Murtha's press conference calling for withdrawal from Iraq was just a stunt devised with Nancy Pelosi. He was once again dumping on the administration and the war in Iraq. This man has never been a hawk.
Now Murtha is dumping on the troops. Despite how the dems always say they support the troops, they just can't help themselves when they are in front of a microphone.
Murtha announced yesterday that the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth." Well, the Army isn't a building. It isn't a weapon. It's troops!
We have the greatest military in the history of the world. We have the best training, the best technology, and the strongest will to fight because our troops know all about sacrificing for freedom.
Murtha has said he doesn't want another Vietnam-style loss. Well, as a decorated Vietnam veteran, he should know that when politicians turn on the troops and the mission, the enemy is emboldened. We had Vietnam won in 1968, but the angry left (including the pols) demoralized our troops and uplifted the enemies. The war slogged on until we pulled out years later.
Shame on you, Rep. Murtha. You are demoralizing our troops and aiding the enemy. You, sir, are the cause of Vietnam-style quagmires.
