Why Are US Soldiers Dying? Ask Senator Reid

Published by at 6:12 am under All General Discussions,Iraq

The reason Sen Surrender’s (Reid’s) comments were so horrific were not because he was once again stating the obvious liberal democrat position – one which cannot uphold a veto threat because it is NOT the position of most Americans. No, it was not for repeating the well worn liberal mantra. It was because it sent a signal to our enemies during this debate to start killing if they want Sen Surrender to win the day, and that is what al Qaeda is now doing:

A suicide car bomber killed nine US soldiers and injured more than 20 in the single deadliest attack on American ground forces in Iraq for more than a year yesterday.
The attack happened north of Baghdad at a base in Diyala province, which borders Iran and has been the scene of fierce fighting involving US and Iraqi troops and Sunni and Shia forces.

The casualties, along with the death of another US soldier in a roadside bombing in Muqdadiya, also north of the capital, took the number of US troops killed in Iraq this month to 85.

As one soldier in Iraq put it so clearly, Sen Reid is killing our people with his loose lips and botched signals to our enemies:

To be brief, your words are killing us. Your statements make the Iraqis afraid to help us for fear we’ll leave them unprotected in the future. They don’t report a cache, and its weapons blow up my friends in a convoy. They don’t report a foreign fighter, and that fighter sends a mortar onto my base. Your statements are noticed, and they have an effect.

Senator Reid and the Democrat leaders are responsible in a large part for the uptick in violence. The terrorists smelled a hint of surrender and decided to go all out to see if they could stop THEIR bleeding. They want to die doing this so any hope is worth dying for. And now the Democrats better face another reality. Bush is going to veto this Bill and they better stop playing games and stop leaving our troops out to dry. Democrats – you do not have the votes to override a veto and you know it. Stop bleeding our troops like this. Get the funds you already passed to the President and then run a surrender Bill through all by itself. If you have the support you claim then it will pass. We all know you don’t and enough of our best and finest have died with your little stubborn partisan game. End it now and fund the war.

No more blood for politics.

Update: The Democrats know they cannot force the President to surrender – they have already given up on that. But in a sickening display of not caring about our troops at all, they are all for sending signals of encouragement all summer to al Qaeda:

Democratic leaders have been discussing a plan to send the president a smaller tranche of war funds if this measure is vetoed, which would continue funding the war for a shorter period — and would keep the war debate on the front burner.

If Democrats truly supported the troops the LAST thing they would do is keep this debate on the front burner. They will literally bleed the military to win and have now announced this fact openly.

    Regional snobbery is what it is. Oklahoma is in Jesus Land. Soothie probably lives on the coast, where the smart people are. That is also where most of the pollution and crime are, but hey, at least they aren’t stupid Okies.

    I am a senior citizen and I am taking a few courses just to expand my knowledge at the Junior College down the street.

    I recently had a required text in a Humanities course burn my fantastic plastic to the tune of $146.00 bucks.

    At those prices you have got to wonder if the professor was getting a cut or was at least paid off in advance by the book vendor.

    Not that Terrye’s excellent responses need any help or Aitch, but … check out D.C. public schools. Per student spending is the highest or close to it, student “performance” the worst … every year, year after year, new mayor after new mayor.
