John Murtha Says...
In other words, 'Cut and Run'!
And more from John Murtha:
REP. JOHN MURTHA (D), Pennsylvania: I believed in the Vietnam War. I thought we were fighting communism. But Lyndon Johnson said they had an election. One month after I come out of Vietnam, "Everything's going to be all right."
"You know how many people we lost from 1967 until we pulled out? Thirty-seven thousand. Rhetoric does not answer the problem; only the Iraqis can solve the problem in Iraq. They're fighting with each other, and our troops are caught in between, and I say it's time to redeploy and be ready."
By the end of this year, we will have spent $450 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars on this war.
The truth, as has been repeated these last few days, is this: The Commiecrats will be there, with you, when the first shot is fired. But when the going gets tough, they will turn tail and abandon you.
Step aside Grandpa Simpson, for there's a new Coot in town:

Hell... lets take the text books out of schools so no one will ever speak of these wars again.
I think it's asinine for anyone to assume that just because you haven't experienced something yourself that you have to keep your mouth shut about it.
If that were the case then I would have to decline being a parent because I'll be damned if I'm going to sit around waiting for some drug dealer to tell my child about drugs.
Or wait for some prostitute to tell him about sex... or some jailbird to tell him breaking the law is the right choice.
Lets just sit back and let the "know-it-alls" and "experienced" people raise our kids while we just fade away into nothing.
No thank you!
I just went to your link to nbc17 and checked out their latest poll...
When do you think U.S. troops should pull out of Iraq?
1 - Within the next year
2 - Immediately
3 - Whenever the U.S. president says it's time to exit
4 - There will always need to be a U.S. troop presence in Iraq.
So far it's 56% are saying "when the president says".
Will this poll be televised? Doubtful.
How can we cut and run on those we've promised to help? It's just insane to offer help, and then do a 180 and say, "see ya later, you're on your own."
That is NOT what the U.S. is about.
Thanks, as always, Phoenix
