Democrat Calls for Surrender

Another democrat gave an impassioned tearful plea today. Rep. John Murtha (D-PA)is calling for the surrender of U.S. forces in Iraq. Stating that "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 interests of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf region." As he chocked back tears he predicted that we could complete the surrender and the troops could be pulled out in six months.

Murtha once considered a hawkish democrat is a Vietnam veteran. He served as a Marine intelligence officer. Other than asserting that he is disappointed that the Iraq war is not going "as advertised", in the AP report he does not give any other reasons for the urgent need for surrender. The report does state that when Murtha speaks people on Capitol Hill consider him to be speaking for the troops. The report does not, however explain why there has not been mass surrenders or why there have not been units refusing to fight.

What the hell is this guy talking about? Of course this idiotic resolution will be, if it has not already, overwhelmingly defeated. Do the democrats really believe that the best thing for this country and Iraq is for our troops to pull out now?

The democrats are not completely blind. They also have more information than what is dispensed through the MSM. They know that great strides have been made in Iraq both militarily and politically. When the cat gets out of the bag to the American people they know they are screwed. The only way to avert complete disgrace for fighting the President every step of the way on the war on terror is to try and convince the American people that the Iraq war was for nothing. That Saddam was never a threat to the U.S. and that Bush lied about intelligence. Of course neither of those assertions are true and they know it, but democrats have never let the truth get in the way of their agenda.

The democrats are in a corner and even though they know they are wrong they believe they have to take this course of action in a desperate attempt to take back control of Congress. Once in control of Congress it does not matter how Iraq turns out. If it is a success then they claim they got the war on the right track when they took over. If they decide to cut and run because that is what their left-wing loonie base wants them to do, then it was Bush that got us into this mess and his fault that Iraq is in the middle of murderous civil war. Furthermore, the fact that Iran came in on the side of Shiites won the civil war and has now established the largest, richest, terrorist supporting Islamic state in the world is also all Bush's fault.

As a result of Bush's blundering and in light of the aftermath of said blundering the democrats state that we have no option but to negotiate with this new terrorist regime. Because this Islamic country with its vast resources has started to stockpile nuclear and biological weapons we have been forced to re-adopt the MAD (mutually assured destruction) doctrine of the Cold War pre-Reagan years. I could go on with this but I digress.

How is that for a conspiracy theory? This has to be the plan because I find it extremely difficult to think that these democrats actually believe what they are saying.
