I have been telling you for months, but apparently not enough of you listen to the message I was trying to get across, I told you these Democrats wanted to retreat in the war on terror and Iraq specifically.
The Democrats and the media actually wonder why we call them “cut and run” Democrats, the named is well deserved and they give us ample opportunities to prove our point when they go on TV and embarrass themselves and their party.
Newly elected Congressional majority leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid have taken this a step further and sent the President a letter Friday.
“The start of the new Congress brings us opportunities to work together on the critical issues confronting our country. No issue is more important than finding an end to the war in Iraq. December was the deadliest month of the war in over two years, pushing U.S. fatality figures over the 3,000 mark.
The American people demonstrated in the November elections that they do not believe your current Iraq policy will lead to success and that we need a change in direction for the sake of our troops and the Iraqi people. We understand that you are completing your post-election consultations on Iraq and are preparing to make a major address on your Iraq strategy to the American people next week.
Clearly this address presents you with another opportunity to make a long overdue course correction. Despite the fact that our troops have been pushed to the breaking point and, in many cases, have already served multiple tours in Iraq, news reports suggest that you believe the solution to the civil war in Iraq is to require additional sacrifices from our troops and are therefore prepared to proceed with a substantial U.S. troop increase.
Surging forces is a strategy that you have already tried and that has already failed. Like many current and former military leaders, we believe that trying again would be a serious mistake. They, like us, believe there is no purely military solution in Iraq. There is only a political solution.
Adding more combat troops will only endanger more Americans and stretch our military to the breaking point for no strategic gain. And it would undermine our efforts to get the Iraqis to take responsibility for their own future. We are well past the point of more troops for Iraq.”
I suppose I could try and sit down with the terrorist and try to forge a working political solution to the current situation in Iraq, but I would have a hard time because I would be headless if they had the slightest chance.
I am utterly appalled at the overt display of overwhelming disrespect that many major Democrats level at those who proudly serve this country, the Democrats are constantly calling into question the intelligence our or troops and it needs to stop.
I would like to see one Democrat be able to do half of what your normal soldier is able to accomplish, it would be an embarrassment that would rival John Kerry’s latest visit to Iraq.
Retreat should never be an option when we have the military strength that we now are able to wield, we cannot let these Democrats drag us down with them, and we must stand and fight!
