Harry Reid Describes the Force Behind Iraqi Barbarism… Bush
You won’t see this on CNN, Yahoo or the BBC tomorrow just like you didn’t see the mainstream media mention the 500 chemical weapons discovered in Iraq today but, in Harry Reid’s Cut and Run speech on the Senate floor on Thursday , the democratic leader exposed the force behind the evil, brutal terrorist attacks in Iraq…
George W. Bush.
Thankfully, the Leftists at the Huffington Post have posted this jewel of Anti-Americanism. Here are a few of the classier lines:
Reid: Almost four years ago, we stood in this chamber debating whether to give the President the authority to go to war with Iraq. Much has happened in Iraq since that fateful day at great price to our troops, our taxpayers and our security.
The Iraq war will soon become the longest conflict in this nation’s history – longer than World War II, a war in which we fought across Europe, North Africa and the Pacific.
Longest conflict in American history?
An “F” for you senator:
Major American Wars
The Revolution (1775-1783)
War of 1812 (1812-1815)
Mexican War (1846-1848)
Civil War (1861-1865)
Spanish American War (1898)
World War I (1917-1918)
World War II (1941-1945) (Marshall Plan 1947-1951)
Gulf War (1990-1991)
Again… only the Revolution, Civil War, World War II with reconstruction, and the Vietnam Wars were longer. But, who needs stinking facts when your the Democratic Leader of the Senate?
This next line is where the leader of the democratic party in the Senate takes a seat next to the Michael Moores and Jimmy Carters of the party. It was not an accident the recluse Moore sat next to the country’s worst president at the DNC in 2004:
** Reid: These Bush Administration missteps have reduced Iraqi support for our presence and fueled anti-American sentiments and insurgent activity.
As a result, the mission of our troops has become more difficult and dangerous.
Please remember those words from the Democratic Senate Leader when you hear the details on the slaughter of Private Kristian Menchaca of Houston and Private Thomas Tucker of Oregon. Outrageous!
Reid: The killing of terrorist Zarqawi was a step forward But as we’ve seen the killings haven’t ended. Sectarian violence is on the rise because the Iraqi government has failed to make the political compromises necessary to create a stable government that can provide for the security of its people.
And when Iraqis are asked-
QUESTION TO IRAQIS: THINKING ABOUT ANY HARDSHIPS YOU MIGHT HAVE SUFFERED SINCE THE US-BRITAIN INVASION, DO YOU PERSONALLY THINK THAT OUSTING SADDAM HUSSEIN WAS WORTH IT OR NOT? (chart shows those who responded “worth it”).
Brookings Institute -June 19, 2006
Reid: I recall vividly when the Senate paused for a moment of silence when we reached the grim milestone of 2,000 U.S. deaths. And just last week, on a date that arrived far too quickly, we paused again to honor the now 2,500 who have given their lives.
Ried: The war is now costing the American people upwards of $10 billion per month. The military has been stretched thin, with every available combat unit in the Army and Marine Corps serving multiple tours in Iraq.
Funny… The democratic hawk John Murtha said on Sunday June 18, 2006 that the war was costing $8 billion dollars a month. Murtha also said the war cost $9 billion a month, the week before, and $6 billion a month, back in December… Which is it?
Harry did get one thing right:
Reid: It’s time to change course from the slogans, the attacks, and the continual misleading.
Hopefully he will take his own advice.
