Those democrats sure know how to support the troops!
The war in Iraq “is lost” and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.
“I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week,” Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.
Al Qaeda in Iraq recently said the same thing:
In a new video posted Thursday on the Internet, an al-Qaida militant who escaped from a U.S. prison in Afghanistan urged Sunni militants in Iraq to join the terror group and claimed the U.S. military’s security plan for Baghdad has failed.
Please don’t question their patriotism.
It’s a good day for this reminder…
Appeal For Courage asks you sign their petition to urge Congress to support the troops in Iraq.
It appears Harry Reid could learn something from the committee at “Appeal For Courage.”
Michael Totten, who is currently in Iraq, adds this:
…Most Americans have soured on the war and want out. I was once optimistic myself, but I no longer am. I can’t help but notice, though, that those I’ve spoken to who actually live in Iraq are more confident and less fatalistic.
