Vets Outraged!… After Rep. Moran Calls Soldiers War Criminals
Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) is the latest democrat to attack the US troops at War in Iraq.
This time he says that US soldiers are ethnically cleansing Baghdad:
Did you catch that?
“Sure there’s less violence but that’s because we’ve ethnically cleansed most of Baghdad.”
Well not everyone was happy that Representative Moran was calling our troops war criminals on the House floor.
Vets For Freedom released a statement today:
(Washington, DC) Vets for Freedom condemns the recent comments by Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) on the floor of the House of Representatives in which he stated that American troops “ethnically cleansed Baghdad.” The United Nations, along with the rest of the civilized world, commonly refers to ethnic cleansing as genocide.
“Once again, Congressman Moran demonstrates how far from reality he has fallen,” said Executive Director of Vets for Freedom and Iraq Army veteran, Pete Hegseth. “Jim Moran has a long history of putting his foot in his mouth, but this time he has gone too far. The men and women who make up our nation’s military are decent and honorable citizens who bravely serve to fight our enemies who threaten our national security. Insinuating that they are war criminals is outright despicable.”
He continued, “I call on all Members of Congress to follow Vets for Freedom in our condemnation of these irresponsible accusations, as well as on the constituents of the 8th District of Virginia to stand up to such nonsense and support the men and women whose very sacrifice allows Moran to run his mouth.”
