Who is supporting our troops?


U..S. Rep John Murtha, a Vietnam veteran who retired in 1990 as a colonel in the U.S. Marine Reserves, called for the withdrawal of U. S. troops in Iraq today.
He said:
"The United States and coalition troops have done all they can in Iraq. But it's time for a change in direction. Our military is suffering. The future of our country is at risk. We cannot continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action in Iraq is not in the best interest of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf region."

The Republicans in the House put up their usual condemnations of people who find the war an atrocity on our people as they celebrated the deaths of four Marines in Iraq yesterday.

Comments:
Not our Democrat. Thanks Stephanie. The Rethugs must love you.
 
No to be bashing Stephanie, but I really agree with John Murtha. We have got to get our soldiers out of there before any more die. This is just stupid....I compare it to hunting pheasants in a cage. Our guys are easy pickings. Let's get out now.
