Congress Targeting Our Troops

Published by at 1:43 pm under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT,Iraq

The Democrat Congress just painted enormous targets on our military by uselessly passing Bills to surrender Iraq to al Qaeda which provide no other purpose than to embolden the terrorists and giving them the propaganda win they need so bad as Iraqis work to push them out of their country. listen to the military Dems – and not just those who echo your insanity but those who tell you the downside of your selfish votes:

The insurgents understand us better than we understand them. They view the establishment of a withdrawal timetable as the path to victory. If they know when the United States will do as Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee suggests, simply declare victory and go home (“We need to claim victory for our soldiers….”), it reinforces their will to simply outlast the Americans. It says to them, “Keep up the attacks and the Americans will call it quits and leave.” In fact, they will likely make the attacks even more gruesome and spectacular – it will hasten the collapse of any remaining public support for the war. Of course, when the Senate majority leader declares that the war is lost, it only strengthens the insurgents’ resolve.

Congress just provided the impetus for rampant bloodshed and death. Congress just gave al Qaeda the impression wide spread death – preferrably the horrible deaths we see with families and children – will grow the votes against Bush. They won’t of course. But the Dems did not make it clear to the ME they would support Bush if al Qaeda killed more Iraqis and tried to influence our debate. Probably because the Dems are counting on the bloodshed working just as al Qaeda is. They do not care how many people die, as long as it provides them the momentum they want. Congress should have put the ME on notice. It would be simple and safe. But they did not. That speaks volumes regarding the collusion between liberals and Islamo Fascists. You don’t need to coordinate to work together towards the same destructive goals.

I guess we were wrong about Saddam and al Qaeda working together. We should have been more worried about Pelosi and Reid supporting Bin Laden…….

Update: With friends like these…

It is clear how big a blunder the Democrats just created when you look at the ME and see who is cheering and who is jeering. The democratically elected Iraqi government is jeering the vote. And clearly Bin Laden and Zawahiri are cheering the vote. That is all you need to know If anyone sees a response from the terrorists please link it here.

    Sad that they are not going to listen to the cheers in ME.

  2. Terrye says:

    Disgraceful. And for what? They know it won’t stand.

  3. lurker9876 says:

    The Democrats still violated the Constitution by setting a timeline. The only two constitutional choices are: 1) Defund NOW or 2) give them a clean defense bill.

    I see that Murtha is considering what to do once Bush vetoes it:


    “Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said Democrats were still considering what to do after Bush’s veto. One option would be funding the war through September as Bush wants but setting benchmarks that the Iraqi government must meet, he said.”

    I don’t want Murtha to set benchmarks. That is not his responsibility.

    It’s Bush’s responsibility.

    I see that McCain and Graham missed the vote but their vote would not have helped.

  5. crosspatch says:

    This has nothing to do with politics. Reid and Pelosi’s actions are counter to the way I was raised. It is just plain wrong. I am embarrassed to have them listed among my countrymen. They are a disgrace to the nation and to their parents.

  6. Soothsayer says:

    The Democrats still violated the Constitution by setting a timeline.

    Oh, do please demonstrate how any part of the Constitution is impinged upon – let alone violated – by this funding bill. That’s just plain silly.

    I don’t want Murtha to set benchmarks. That is not his responsibility. It’s Bush’s responsibility.

    #1. Murtha doesn’t care what you want.

    #1 Tough luck, dude. Does George want the money or not?

  7. crosspatch says:

    Murtha also doesn’t represent anyone outside of his own district, period. He is also a senile ass who jumped into this only to avoid a media investigation into corruption allegations concerning his brother’s defense consulting firm. The LA Times started down that road with a brief piece laying the groundwork for a full-on investigation and within 30 days Murtha was suddenly the far left’s most outspoken hero.

    He is basically the victim of blackmail … champion our cause to the hilt or we will destroy you.

  8. crosspatch says:

    Oh, and Bush *will* get the money. If not I am going to assume he is going to start cutting spending in Democratic districts to make up the difference.

  9. scaulen says:

    It’s usually called chicken shit what the Democrats just did. They don’t have the guts to cut off funding for the war. Instead they are going to load a war funding bill with pork and dead lines that they know before hand the President will veto.

    The President was given authority to conduct the war, set time lines, over all strategy by who???

    Congress controls the flow of money, they have no say in how the war is run, or when it will end. Their only way to influence the war is by??????

    It’s called seperation of powers, if either had control over both then it wouldn’t be seperate and easily abused. Our founders took this into consideration when establishing this country, the fact that you have either over looked this, or don’t know this is disturbing.

  10. Soothsayer says:

    he is going to start cutting spending in Democratic districts to make up the difference

    He can do that if he wants to grease the skids for his own impeachment.

  11. scaulen says:

    Such obvious stupidity, are they being bribed or black mailed? Didn’t they learn from Vietnam? The Democratic party has the blood of hundreds of thousands Vietnamese and over a million Cambodians on their hands, and now they want to add Iraqi blood also? The party of the underprivileged, of the down trodden, of the minority, and this is what they do? The Democratic party should be broken up and remade, it’s a shame what they have become.

  12. BarbaraS says:

    I’m waiting to see what role Murtha played in the Navy intelligence’s suppression of evidence exonerating the Haditha marines. If it is found that he is culpable what will happen to his house seat and/or committee chairs?
    The marines involved say the Navy intelligence questioned them for eighteen hours straight and did not allow them food or drink or even bathroom privileges during that time. The marines also said the Navy intelligence only wanted to prove them guilty not find out the facts. Murtha is chair of committee that oversights these people. Did he order them to do this? If he did does this not prove he is a traitor? Like we didn’t know this before.

  13. crosspatch says:

    “He can do that if he wants to grease the skids for his own impeachment.”

    Which will also never happen. Even if they got a majority in the house, it takes a 2/3 majority in the Senate. That will never, ever, happen during Bush’s term. Besides, there really isn’t enough time left.

  14. crosspatch says:

    “The party of the underprivileged, of the down trodden, of the minority, and this is what they do?”

    The Democrats are doubleplus good. Or so the Department of Truth says.

  15. Terrye says:

    I suggest that everyone read Lieberman’s speech over at Power Line , it is a very reasoned response to this silly bill. He makes it plain that not only is it wrong, it can not work. But they know that. The idea that our soldiers will stand by and watch people be slaughtered and only respond to AlQaida is so stupid.

  16. Terrye says:


    The Congress can fund or not fund, they do not make battlefield decisions.

  17. crosspatch says:

    “He makes it plain that not only is it wrong, it can not work.”

    They knew that all along. It was never intended to pass. It was designed to hold the media spotlight on the Democrats. It is more theater. They new from the start that there was no way the President was going to sign it. It was designed to simply have debate that got media attention so Pelosi and Reid could get on TV and issue “important” statements.

    Had they simply passed the bill the President asked for, there would have been no controversy and they wouldn’t have been on TV. It would have gone pretty much unreported in the media because it would have been just regular business. It was done this way to create drama.

    It is infantile, it is silly, it is disrespectful to our troops in uniform and it is without a shred of class or taste. It is Jerry Springer style statesmanship. It is what the Democratic party has devolved into. They are morons.
